Critics Line Up To Accuse Trump Of Threatening Adam Schiff In Tweet




resident Donald Trump fired off a Sunday morning tweet in the direction of House impeachment manager Adam Schiff, and critics immediately piled on to accuse him of issuing a direct threat.
“Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!” Trump tweeted.

Schiff himself told Chuck Todd on Sunday’s “Meet the Press” that he believed Trump had intended to threaten him when he said, “He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!”

Others were quick to take up the same argument.


Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!
Is this the US President threatening the life of a US Congressman, a leader of the opposition party? Does not matter: fact we are having a legitimate debate about whether or not President is ordering hit on Congressman means we have already lost our way as a republic.

Is this a death threat? You’re a dangerous sociopath...and should be convicted and removed from office immediately...

Trump saying today that Adam Schiff has "not paid the price" is a THREAT. Period. It's like when a mob boss threatens prosecutors. But instead of coming from a mob boss it's coming from the head of the Republican Party. And the rest of the GOP is silent.

Among the critics were sitting Democratic Rep. David Cicilline of Rhode Island and Sen. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland. Cicilline called for a ruling from Twitter, while Van Hollen argued that Trump’s attorneys should be admonished by Chief Justice John Roberts, who has been tasked with overseeing Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate.

.@jack, I’m pretty sure threatening a Member of Congress is a violation of your rules, no? https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1221422761597394944

Chris Lu, who served as White House cabinet secretary under former President Barack Obama, argued that the current “threat” against Schiff was simply the continuation of a pattern of behavior.

"Do us a favor"
"Take her out"
"Head on a pike"
"Pay the price"

With each mob-style threat, Trump just provides further proof that he's very capable of shaking down a foreign leader.

And yet, moderate Rs will feign outrage when these threats are pointed out to them.
