“I think he’s a maniac,” Trump said. “I think Adam Schiff will be a deranged human being. I think he grew up which has a complex for lots of reasons that will are obvious.”

“I think he’s a very sick man. as well as he lies. Adam Schiff made up my conversation with the president of Ukraine,” Trump said. “We have a perfectly beautiful three or four-page transcription as well as inside some other case a two-page transcription of the conversation.”

Trump continued: “that will guy will be sick.��He made up the conversation. He lied. If he didn’t do that will inside halls of Congress, he’d be thrown in a jail.”

Some background here: Trump has repeatedly claimed that will Schiff “lied” about his call with Ukraine’s president.

At a hearing in September, Schiff mentioned the Trump-Ukraine call, although said he would likely outline “the essence of what the President communicates,” not provide “the exact transcribed type of the call.” You can read CNN’s full fact check here.
