"Adam Schiff is a lowlife" President Trump answers questions while with president of Finland
The impeachment war between President Trump and House Democrats escalated dramatically on Wednesday as committee leaders prepared to subpoena the White House for documents and both sides traded fiery accusations.
At a press conference held minutes after the draft subpoena was released, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., blasted Trump for his statements decrying the Ukraine whistleblower and his or her sources.
Pelosi described Trump's statements as "dangerous." Schiff called them a "blatant effort to intimidate witnesses" and an "incitement to violence." He also warned the Trump administration his investigators are "not fooling around."
Trump, for his part, essentially live-tweeted his responses to the press conference assertions, arguing that Democrats are wasting time and using impeachment as a campaign tool.
"It is just camouflage for trying to win an election through impeachment," he tweeted, before calling BS on Democrats' impeachment inquiry, in a profanity-laced follow-up:
"The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLS---, 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!"
