President Donald Trump on Thursday night used a political rally in Louisiana, billed as a late-race assist to the Republican candidate for governor, to blast the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry and insult House Intelligence Chairman Adam B. Schiff.
“While we are creating jobs and killing terrorists, the radical left — Democrats — are ripping our country apart,” he said to boos from the crowd inside the CenturyLink Center in Bossier City. He later accused Democrats of trying to “sabotage our democracy.”
Trump went after “small-necked” Schiff, trying to paint the California Democrat as physically and intellectually tiny. “What size shirt do you need?” the president said, mimicking a tailor talking to Schiff, whom Trump then said would reply: “Um, size 9.”
TRUMP ON SCHIFF: “He should be prosecuted. The only problem is, he has immunity because he is a Congressman, and he made the statement in the halls of Congress.”
Yesterday he claimed he didn’t know who the Whistleblower was.

The president accused Democrats of “trying to overthrow the last election because they know they’re not going to win the next election.” Democrats, however, say Trump tried to bribe Ukraine’s new president with military aid and a White House meeting in return for a public declaration that he would investigate Democrats.
Onstage Thursday, Trump read from a printout of a story from the conservative Daily Wire that he said should exonerate him.
The story began this way: “Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said on Thursday that the United States Ambassador Gordon Sondland did not link financial military assistance to a request for Ukraine to open up an investigation into former vice president and current Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.”
With another public impeachment hearing slated for 9 a.m. Friday, Trump touted his “great group of Republicans,” who’ve stuck by his side. Though Democrats appear to have ample votes in the House to impeach Trump, no Senate Republican has yet to support his removal at the end of a possible trial in that chamber.
