House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., said on Wednesday that he interpreted the remark of President Trump a day earlier as a “veiled threat” against him.

Trump had said on Tuesday during a press conference with Guatemalan President that he believed that it was unfair that the ship could not be prosecuted over his conduct during the impeachment request, and added that Guatemala has a “tougher” system of justice.

“If you said a guy as shifty ship go and make a statement that I made – He said, that’s what I said, but I never said that he is Total, it is,” Trump. “In Guatemala, you treat things a lot … harder than that, and because of the immunity … he can’t be prosecuted.”

Ship told CNN’s Dana Bash, he took the comments very seriously.

“This is a President, after all, who said that people who blow the whistle on him, they are traitors and spies and should be treated as traitors and spies are used – We used to execute traitors and spies,” the ship said. “This is not a President threatens anyone who gets in his way.”

He said Trump, the undertone was a reference to Guatemala “violent history”.

“He is not added to going to intimidate me,” the ship.
