President Donald Trump on Saturday warned that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., risks voter disapproval — and a grilling in the Senate — if he moves forward with impeachment.
In a tweet, Trump suggested unnamed polling shows Americans are against impeachment.
“Adam Schiff will be compelled to testify should the Democrats decide, despite the fact that my presidential conversations were totally appropriate (perfect), to go forward with the Impeachment Hoax,” Trump tweeted.
“Polls have now turned very strongly against Impeachment!”
Republicans have pushed for Schiff to testify in the impeachment because he was in contact with the whistleblower whose concerns sparked the proceeding.
On Nov. 8, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., wrote a letter to Schiff demanding he testify prior to House hearings, Fox News reported at the time.
It didn’t happen, but Trump warns it could if the proceedings went to the Senate for trial.
