Controversy as Schiff “Performs” Inaccurate Improvised Script of What Trump Said In Ukraine Call

House Intel Committee chairman Adam Schiff is taking heat from Conservatives for “performing” a completely inaccurate “script” of what President Trump said in his call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Schiff claimed “This is the essence” but went on to add his own “color” to portray President Trump as a “mafia boss” like character.


In opening statement, Rep. Schiff makes up dialogue to represent what Trump said to Zelensky. A rough transcript of the president’s words exists, and is available, but Schiff’s version is more dramatic.

Matt Whitlock wrote “Biggest takeaway will likely be his fake Trump call.”

Mike Sanchez wrote “There you go ad-libbing again because that is not what the transcript said”

Per DailyCaller, Schiff said:

“This is the essence of what the president communicates. We’ve been very good to your country, very good, no other country has done as much as we have, but you know what, I don’t see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I have a favor I want from you, though. And I’m going to say this only seven times, so you better listen good.”

The congressman on Wednesday compared Trump’s words to Volodymyr Zelensky as akin to a “Mafia-like shakedown” and he apparently read that perception into his interpretation of the transcript of that conversation.

Schiff continued, making it up as he went along:  “I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent, understand, lots of it, on this and on that. I’m going to put you in touch with people, not just any people, I’m going to put you in touch with the attorney general of the United States, my attorney general Bill Barr. He’s got the whole weight of the American law enforcement behind him.”

The House Intelligence Committee chairman even suggested that Trump told Zelensky, “‘And I’m going to put you in touch with Rudy — you’re going to love him, trust me. You know what I’m asking, and so I’m only going to say this a few more times in a few more ways. And by the way, don’t call me again, I’ll call you when you’ve done what you’ve asked.’ This is the sum and character what the president was trying to communicate with the president of Ukraine. It would be funny if it wasn’t such a graphic betrayal of the president’s Oath of Office.”
