Rep. Schiff: Trump Thinks He Has A ‘God-Given Right To Shakedown Foreign Leaders’

Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff claims that President Donald Trump “believes it is his God-given right to shakedown foreign leaders” in order to get reelected.

The House Intelligence Committee chairman also declared that “the president is furious with me” for forcing the White House to release the transcript of the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that most House Democrats are now saying produced an impeachable offense.

“The president believes it is his God-given right to shakedown foreign leaders for help on his reelection and he should not be encumbered by the public finding out about it,” Schiff told “This Week With George Stephanopoulos.” (RELATED: Rep.
