WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump blasted Democrats in a strongly worded tweet Wednesday morning, blaming the party for wasting Americans' time and energy.
The president's tweet followed a warning by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff that they were not "fooling around" when it comes to the impeachment inquiry. They also hinted that attempts by the administration to prevent witness testimony and the handover of documents could be folded into articles of impeachment on the grounds of obstruction.
Trump held a joint press conference Wednesday afternoon with the president of Finland, in which he again accused Schiff of misrepresenting his call with the president of Ukraine. On that July 25 call, Trump is accused of asking the Kiev government to investigate his potential 2020 rival former Vice President Joe Biden in an apparent abuse of power. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by Biden.
"He should resign from office in disgrace, and frankly, they should look at him for treason," the president said of Schiff.
In this most recent controversial tweet, Trump hit out at the "Do Nothing Democrats," who he said "should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone's time and energy on BULL****, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016, 223-306. Get a better candidate this time, you'll need it!"
