Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said recent comments from President Trump about him constituted a threat.
Trump has railed against Schiff, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, over how the lawmaker characterized a call between the president and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that is at the heart of the House’s impeachment hearings.
The article goes on to state the following:
“In Guatemala, they handle things much tougher than that,” Trump said Tuesday at the White House while meeting with the Guatemalan president.
In a CNN interview on Tuesday, when asked by Dana Bash if Trump’s comments were a threat, Schiff responded, “I think that’s what he intended it to be.”
“So this is not a president above threatening anyone who gets in his way, anyone who stands up to him,” Schiff declared.
Below is a video of President Trump’s remarks in the Oval Office, followed by a video of Schiff’s CNN interview.
