President Donald Trump claimed House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., committed crimes in "the impeachment hoax" and should be impeached.
Trump's comments came in a Monday night tweet.
He wrote: "The only crimes in the Impeachment Hoax were committed by Shifty Adam Schiff, when he totally made up my phone conversation with the Ukrainian President and read it to Congress, together with numerous others on Shifty's side. Schiff should be Impeached, and worse!"
Schiff's panel is investigating Trump's dealings with Ukraine as part of the impeachment inquiry.
The Hill noted that while discussing a rough transcript Trump's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Schiff paraphrased at certain points and said Trump told the foreign leader to "make up dirt on my political opponent."
Earlier on Monday, Trump attacked the congressman in another tweet, saying Schiff is upset "we didn't inform him before we raided and killed the #1 terrorist in the World!?"
And he added: "Wouldn't be surprised if the Do Nothing Democrats Impeach me over that!"
