“These reckless Democrat schemes are beyond madness at this point,” House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) said Tuesday.

Democrats have been leveling “baseless accusations” – which all turned out to be false - against President Donald Trump since before his election, but now, their claims have gone “beyond madness,” Rep. Scalise tweeted:

“Democrats have been throwing out baseless accusations against @realDonaldTrump since before he was even elected—and they’ve all turned out to be wrong. There has to be a level of responsibility. These reckless Democrat schemes are beyond madness at this point.”

Scalise included video of his appearance on Fox News, in which he reminded viewers of the false promises of evidence made in the past by Democrats like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) – and how they’ve even resorted to fabricating Trump quotes in order to accuse the president:

“Whatever it is, it’s still not high crimes and misdemeanors. You know they’ve been throwing this innuendo out there. And, Adam Schiff was on T.V. yesterday, throwing even more baseless accusations.

“And, keep in mind, he’s the one who, during the Mueller investigation for two years, promised that he had more than circumstantial evidence that a crime was committed. And, there was no crime committed. He never, by the way, brought forward that mysterious that he had – because it never existed.

“And, then, today, at the committee hearing the other day, he started making up a story that, later, even he admitted wasn’t even fact to try to accuse the president of something.

“At some point, there’s got to be a level of responsibility.”

In a tweet on Monday, Rep. Scalise attributed the Democrats’ “baseless impeachment inquiry” to “left-wing rage”:

“Radicals & socialists have taken over the Democrat Party. They're calling all the shots now. Just last week, they pressured Pelosi into launching a baseless impeachment inquiry based on false rumors & left-wing rage.

“This is a witch hunt of @realDonaldTrump, plain & simple.”
