Congressman Adam Schiff illegally made a false and dreadful statement that had misrepresented a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Vladimir Selensky, Trump tweeted on Monday.
"It has no relation to what I said in the phone call," Trump wrote, adding the question, "Arrest for treason?"
Schiff is chairman of the intelligence committee in the Democratic-dominated House of Representatives.
Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended to be the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read aloud to Congress and the American people. It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?

Schiff had said over the phone call between the US president and his Ukrainian colleague that the transcript reads "like a classic blackmail of organized crime."
Democrat MEPs referred to Trump's request that Selenski should be the role of former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter investigate in a Ukrainian corruption case to let. The Democrats accuse Trump of searching for incriminating material against Joe Biden for personal reasons.
Biden will most likely be chosen by the Democrat to be Trump's challenger in the presidential election next year.
Now the Democrats want to the investigation this week push ahead over the phone call.
