The president went on in his Twitter rant to bash Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, calling him a ‘corrupt politician’.
‘If Shifty Adam Schiff, who is a corrupt politician who fraudulently made up what I said on the ”call,” is allowed to release transcripts of the Never Trumpers & others that are & were interviewed, he will change the words that were said to suit the Dems purposes,’ Trump wrote of Schiff Sunday.
‘Republicans should give their own transcripts of the interviews to contrast with Schiff’s manipulated propaganda. House Republicans must have nothing to do with Shifty’s rendition of those interviews. He is a proven liar, leaker & freak who is really the one who should be impeached!’ he added.
‘I think Nancy Pelosi has lost her mind and I think, frankly, that she should go back home to San Francisco,’ Trump told reporters outside the White House Sunday.

He also claimed on Sunday that polls showing that 49 percent of voters want him impeached were ‘fake’ and ‘lousy’ and said he had ‘the real polls.’

When confronted by the numbers outside the White House Sunday, Trump shot back: ‘You’re looking at the wrong polls. I have the real polls. The CNN polls are fake. The Fox polls have always been lousy. I tell them they ought to get themselves a new pollster.’

In the NBC/WSJ poll taken on the same three dates, 49 percent said they wanted Trump impeached and removed and 46 said he should stay.
It’s compared to an equal percentage believing in a poll conducted October 4-6 that he shouldn’t be impeached and should remain in office. Previously only 43 percent supported a removal and 8 percent admitted they were unsure but this time around there was more certainty among respondents.

As of Sunday, a daily MSN poll showed 52 percent supported the Senate voting to remove Trump from office if he was impeached
In an MSN poll that is updated daily around noon, results on Sunday showed 52 percent supported the Senate voting to remove Trump from office if he was impeached. The percentage was down compared to results late September and early October.
The MSN result – obtained from 1,500 responses in online surveys ‘delivered to a random sample of likely voters’ – said that at the moment, 62 percent believes the country is headed in the wrong direction and 55 percent disapprove of the job President Donald Trump is doing.
In NBC’s poll, half of the respondents said they’d vote for Joe Biden if he was up against Trump, who got 41 percent of the vote, and half said they’d vote for Elizabeth Warren if she was battling against the president, who got 42 percent of the vote when hypothetically pitted against her for the presidency.
‘At this very early stage of the impeachment inquiry the data suggest a path for victory for Trump with the judges in the Senate,’ Democratic pollster Jeff Horwitt of Hart Research, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff at Public Opinion Strategies, told NBC/WSJ about their results.
‘But there’s a much more challenging road ahead come next November with the judges at the ballot box.’
