Subtitle: The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee spoke out after the president attacked him in a rambling six-page letter to Pelosi.
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, joked Wednesday that the passage of President Donald Trump's scorched-earth letter focused on Schiff was "probably the nicest thing" Trump had "to say about me" in some time, adding that the president was merely projecting his own misdeeds onto others.
"This president does nothing but project onto others his lack of morality," Schiff told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" of Trump's Tuesday letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, adding that the White House summary of the president's July 25th phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy "speaks for itself and it's damning"
"Anyone willing to stand up to him, he's going to go after," Schiff said. The criticism from Trump is "just part of my job," he added.
In his rambling six-page letter to Pelosi, in which he said the effort to impeach him amounted to a declaration of "open war on American Democracy where he had less due process than "those accused in the Salem Witch Trials," Trump accused Schiff of "shameless lies and deceptions."
"Congressman Adam Schiff cheated and lied all the way up to the present day, even going so far as to fraudulently make up, out of thin air, my conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine and read this fantasy language to Congress as though it were said by me," Trump wrote. "His shameless lies and deceptions, dating all the way back to the Russia Hoax, is one of the main reasons we are here today."

Says the California baby killing Ukrainian patriot
Democrats know all about morality: framing a man for things he didnt do.
What they accuse Trump of, theyre guilty of themselves.
That’s the pot calling the kettle black.......
I believe history will judge Shiff and the rest of the clowns in the impeachment car as treacherous failures.
Says the man whos buddy kept murdering black gay men in dope fueled butt sex parties.
Since Democrats believe in situational ethics, why would they care about Trumps character?
They certainly didnt take that stand with Clintons sleaze. They doth protest too much.
He 100% more moral then any Democrat in Congress, especially Shiffy here who lied daily for 3.5 years about having “evidence of Trump/Russia Collusion”.
Anyone who dared talk to the Fraud like this, if allowed to live, would have had to grovel mightily to the world by now.
“... a rambling six-page letter ...”
“rambling” = longer than 144 characters.
The writer, Allan Smith, looks exactly like you would think he looks.

Ah yes, the ol’ tried-and-true “I know you are but what am I?” defense.
Better vote NO or feel our wrath at the ballot box.
