SOT, Donald Trump, US President: "Well we're trying to find out about a whistleblower. When you have a whistleblower that reports things that were incorrect, as you know and you probably now have figured it out, the statement I made to the president of Ukraine, a good man, a nice man, new - was perfect, it was perfect. But the whistleblower reported a totally different statement, like the statement, it was not even made. I guess statement you could say with call, I made a call. The call was perfect. When the whistleblower reported it, he made it sound terrible. And then you had Adam Schiff who, even worse, made up my words, which I think is just horrible, I've never even seen a thing like that. Adam Schiff, representative, congressman, made up what I said. He actually took words and made it up. The reason is when he saw my call to the president of Ukraine, it was so good that he couldn't quote from it because there was nothing done wrong. It was perfect. So Adam Schiff decided I can't let this happen. So let me make up, you ever hear of this one, Gene? You ever hear anything like this? So Adam Schiff made up a phony call and he read it to Congress and he read it to the people of the United States and it's a disgrace. This whole thing is a disgrace. There's been tremendous corruption and we're seeking it. It's called drain the swamp. There's been corruption on the other side. There's been corruption like you've never seen. Now the new president of Ukraine ran on the basis of no corruption. That's how he got elected. And I believe that he really means it. But there was a lot of corruption having to do with the 2016 election against us. And we want to get to the bottom of it. And it's very important that we do. Thank you very much."
SCRIPT
US President Donald Trump accused the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff for making up the contents of the US leader's call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy at a hearing with the Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire. Trump made the remarks at the swearing in ceremony of the new Secretary of Labour, Eugene Scalia, at the White House in Washington DC on Monday.
"I made a call. The call was perfect. When the whistleblower reported it, he made it sound terrible. And then you had Adam Schiff who even worse, made up my words, which I think is just horrible, I've never even thing seen a thing like that," said Trump.

Trump is alleged to have asked Zelenskiy to find damaging information on the business dealings of Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden during a phone call. Hunter Biden worked as a board member in a Ukrainian gas company between 2014-2019.
The Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry into Trump over the allegations on September 24.
