Trump said "this crooked" Schiff "fraudulently mischaracterized" his July 25 Ukraine phone call to congratulate the new president "to make it sound absolutely horrible."
"I'm going to go after him," Trump said. "They say, 'sir, he has immunity, because he said it in Congress he has immunity.' I don't care about immunity. He can't have immunity. He made up a phone call."
Trump added his "totally congenial" phone call was twisted by a "totally terrible fraudulent thing" as Schiff was "talking to the American public, lying and cheating" and now "he has to pay a big price."

AND THIS: Schiff admits he should have been ‘much more clear’ about contact with whistleblower

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., admitted on Sunday that he should have been clearer about his contact with the whistleblower who filed a complaint about President Trumps July phone call with the Ukrainian president.
I should have been much more clear, Schiff said during an interview on CBS Face The Nation.
Fox News reported earlier this month that the intelligence community whistleblower did not disclose contact with Schiffs staff to the intelligence committee inspector general (ICIG).
The sources said ICIG Michael Atkinson told lawmakers in a closed session that the whistleblower did not disclose the contact with the California Democrat’s committee and that Atkinson didnt investigate that contact as he had no knowledge of it.
Sources also told Fox News that Atkinson also revealed that the whistleblower volunteered he or she was a registered Democrat and that they had a prior working relationship with a prominent Democratic politician.
Schiffs office acknowledged earlier this month that the whistleblower had reached out to them before filing a complaint in mid-August, giving Democrats advance warning of the accusations that would lead them to launch an impeachment inquiry days later.
The source said Atkinson told lawmakers he did not know how a Schiff tweet in August and other statements about Ukraine appeared to reflect the substance of the whistleblower complaint, which was not declassified and not shared with Congress until the end of September.

Absolutely, that was clear cut slander with malicious intent.
The best defense is an offense.
As much as I’d love to see him sue, I think it’s just bluster. They were going to look into suing everyone involved in the Kavanaugh attacks, as well as suing the Oakland mayor for obstructing the law. Not having any serious blow back is why these people just keep getting away with such malice.
May not have Civil immunity. Also, treason/sedition. he undermined the POYUS regarding our National Security.
Ha ha ha! I'm in!
Who said they have immunity?
If someone gave them immunity...someone else can take it away.
where in written law does it say members of Congress have immunity????
In what world is he living??
I beginning to see why dueling was part of polite society. I doubt these guys would talk this much if they knew that it would be the last thing they would do.
How can our Congress have immunity and be above the law? There is something wrong with this picture!
No one is above the law in the USA, so I thought.
"Members of both Houses of Congress shall in all cases except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from arrest during sessions of their respective Houses and going to and from the same - and for any speech or debate in either Houses they shall not be questioned in any other place."
Hit’em, and hit hard, the POTUS way.
