WASHINGTON (Reuters) - US President Donald Trump has attacked the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff, after announcing when Trump will be held accountable for pressuring Ukraine to target presidential rival Joe Biden.
"The circus is coming to the city," Trump said on Wednesday in a series of tweets on Twitter, describing Schiff as a liar, a corrupt and a coward, who obeyed angry Democrats and Trump's enemies in the media.
"Everything you will see in the next two weeks is false. It's a fake trial. There are no due procedures, nothing. It's a conspiracy theory and another fake trick."
"There is not one thing Democrats have done in the past three years except to try to harm Donald Trump," he said. "Not only Trump, they hate everyone he represents."
The president's remarks come against the backdrop of the announcement by the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee that witnesses at the hearings of the committee on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week have already received summonses to testify.
The first public hearings will begin an investigation into accountability on Wednesday, with Democrats investigating whether Trump has pressed Ukraine to target Democratic presidential rival Joe Biden.
