Trump Sparks Outrage by Asking if Adam Schiff Should Be Arrested ‘for Treason’

President Donald Trump has caused outrage online after tweeting that Representative Adam Schiff should be arrested for treason. The Democrat, who is Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, is playing a key part in the emerging impeachment inquiry and the President is not happy about it.

Twitter users quickly responded with outrage and contempt, with some suggesting that the President himself should be the one charged with treason.

Others pointed out that comments like this one are more evidence in favor of impeachment. The President has used Twitter to vent his frustration over the past few days.

Even Democratic presidential candidates weighed in, with long-shot Julián Castro taking a swipe at Trump about his impeachment poll numbers.

While others were even more direct than Castro in expressing their feelings.
