Trump accuses Schiff of “illegally inserting” words into transcript his admin released

Donald Trump must have spent the morning with advisors strategizing about which lies to tell to try to extricate himself from the most dangerous position of his presidency as Democrats join ranks and circle in for the kill in their impeachment inquiry, armed with difficult to refute evidence in the form of Trump’s own words.

The president decided to go for broke and go full Orwellian with his own mendacity, straining the credulity of any but the most dim-witted of right-wing conspiracy theorists among his followers.

Despite his own administration having released the highly incriminating transcript of his phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, Trump took to Twitter to delusionally accuse House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) of “fraudulently and illegally” inserting “his made up & twisted words” into the transcript of the extortionary conversation when Schiff paraphrased Trump’s call in a committee hearing.

Trump was responding to a clip posted on Twitter by extremist right-wing BlazeTV of Rep. Schiff admittedly paraphrasing and interpreting the contents of the call between Trump and the Ukrainian leader— a call that he describes as sounding like an “organized crime shakedown.”

“Shorn of its rambling character, and in not so many words, this is the essence of what the president communicates,” Schiff prefaces the interpretation that he offers of the treasonous phone call that so incenses Trump.

Trump continues to act as if he hasn’t been caught red-handed and has the audacity to call Schiff’s entirely accurate interpretation of the president’s words and actions defamatory and libelous while calling for the California congressman’s resignation.

His accusations towards the patriotic whistleblower who put their own career on the line to expose the national security threat deemed of urgent concern by the intelligence community’s own Inspector General is an equally self-serving and reprehensible attempt to deny and deflect, his typical tactic when faced with credible accounts of his criminal behavior.

Trump’s own mischaracterization of the context of Congressman Schiff’s scene-setting retelling of the illegal solicitation of foreign help in Trump’s re-election efforts is exactly the same type of partisan spin in which he is accusing the House Intelligence Committee Chairman of engaging.

Trump may not be president much longer, but he’ll always be the king of psychological projection, assigning his crimes to others since his criminal mental pathways can conceive of no other method of thinking and approaching the world than his own self-serving motivations.

“The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. His heart sank as he thought of the enormous power arrayed against him, the ease with which any Party intellectual would overthrow him in debate, the subtle arguments which he would not be able to understand, much less answer. And yet he was in the right! They were wrong and he was right.” — George Orwell “1984”.

Trump’s latest tweet was just the latest in a series of afternoon tweets asking the world to ignore the evidence of their eyes and ears in a desperate attempt to salvage his regime and stay out of the prison practically calling his name.

It’s Trump’s presidency that will be ending in ashes with his lie-filled defenses and claims of responsibility for an economic recovery he had little to do with and a tax cut that benefited billionaires while leaving the middle class with crumbs so transparently false that only those brainwashed by Fox News and its ilk will be fooled.

No one expects the end of the most corrupt presidency in history to be completed quietly, but one would hope that one won’t have to listen to the president’s pitiful death throes so frequently and so loudly.
