TED CRUZ RIPS PENCIL NECK SCHIFF TO SHREDS FOR ABSURD CLAIM AGAINST TRUMP.
Sen. Ted Cruz weighed in on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff’s claim that President Trump committed witness intimidation by tweeting at former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch while she was testifying in the House’s impeachment proceedings.
The article states the following;
“This may be the single most ridiculous claim of the Dem show trial,” the Texas Republican tweeted Friday about Schiff’s claim. “No, the President’s tweeting is not ‘witness intimidation.’ You may not like the tone of some or even many of his tweets, but it’s absurd to suggest that tweeting is an impeachable ‘high Crime [or] Misdemeanor.’”
Schiff, a California Democrat, said he took Trump’s tweet “very, very seriously.”
“We saw today witness intimidation in real-time by the president of the United States,” the California Democrat said, adding that it was “an effort to chill her and others that come forward.”
Trump tweeted about Yovanovitch Friday during her public hearing, saying that she had failed at every job she has had as a career foreign service officer.
“Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad,” the president said. “She started off in Somalia, how did that go? Then fast forward to Ukraine, where the new Ukrainian President spoke unfavorably about her in my second phone call with him. It is a U.S. President’s absolute right to appoint ambassadors.”
