President Donald Trump took to Twitter in a series of tweets Monday morning where he continued to defend his phone call with Ukrainian President Zelenksy, adding that he immediately released the transcript “in the name of transparency”.

Further, the Commander in Chief blasted the “whistleblower” as a “fake” and asked if House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) should be arrested for treason.

In a series of ten tweets, the President declared, “The Greatest Witch Hunt in the history of our Country!”

“The Fake Whistleblower complaint is not holding up. It is mostly about the call to the Ukrainian President which, in the name of transparency, I immediately released to Congress & the public. The Whistleblower knew almost nothing, its 2ND HAND description of the call is a fraud!” he continued.

Pushing back against Schiff, President Trump reminded everyone that the House Intelligence Committee Chairman made up a “fake and terrible statement” during his opening in last week’s hearing as acting director of DNI Joseph Maguire testified before Congress.

“Rep. Adam Schiff illegally made up a FAKE & terrible statement, pretended it to be mine as the most important part of my call to the Ukrainian President, and read it aloud to Congress and the American people. It bore NO relationship to what I said on the call. Arrest for Treason?” President Trump asked. (Continued Below)

The President went on to say, “Again, the President of Ukraine said there was NO (ZERO) PRESSURE PUT ON HIM BY ME. Case closed!”

Then he asked in all caps, “WHO CHANGED THE LONG STANDING WHISTLEBLOWER RULES JUST BEFORE SUBMITTAL OF THE FAKE WHISTLEBLOWER REPORT? DRAIN THE SWAMP!”

This comes after The Federalist released a report revealing federal records show that the intelligence community secretly revised the formal whistleblower complaint form in August 2019 to eliminate the requirement of direct, first-hand knowledge of wrongdoing. (Continued Below)

The President added in his series: “#FakeWhistleblower”.

Next, he quoted Jim McLaughlin, who has been pollster for over 30 years, pointing out that he is “highly respected.”

“President Trump’s Job Approval Numbers have just reached the highest level since his Inauguration, around 50%, and you can add to that many votes from voters that don’t talk about their vote. Once they saw the President’s numbers going up, they said ‘We gotta do something,’ so they made this whole thing up. Impeachment is also a pre-emptive strike for what they think is coming on the Obama Administration’s handling of the 2016 Election.” Jim McLaughlin, highly respected pollster. @WashTimes @FoxNews,” the Commander in Chief wrote.

Trump responded to the quote and explained, “Very simple! I was looking for Corruption and also why Germany, France and others in the European Union don’t do more for Ukraine. Why is it always the USA that does so much and puts up so much money for Ukraine and other countries? By the way, the Bidens were corrupt!”

He concluded, “The Fake News Media wants to stay as far away as possible from the Ukraine and China deals made by the Bidens. A Corrupt Media is so bad for our Country! In actuality, the Media may be even more Corrupt than the Bidens, which is hard to do!” (Continued Below)
