House Republicans Call on Adam Schiff to Resign as Chair of House Intel Committee Immediately

"As such, we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your constitutional responsibility..."

Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday called on the chair of the committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), to resign immediately from his leadership post over Schiff’s repeated and apparently false claims that there was evidence that President Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia.

For months, Schiff repeatedly said there was evidence that Trump had colluded with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

But according to a memo from Attorney General William Barr to congressional leaders that summarized Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, there was no evidence to support the accusation of collusion.

Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) called for Schiff’s “immediate resignation” as chairman of House Intelligence at the start of a committee hearing on Thursday because of his repeated false accusations.

“Your actions, both past, and present are incompatible with your duty of the chairman of this committee, which alone in the House of Representatives has the obligation and authority to provide effective oversight of the U.S. intelligence community,” Conaway said. “As such, we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as chairman of the committee. Mr. Chairman, this letter is signed by all nine members of the Republican side of the committee, and I ask unanimous consent that it be entered into the record at today’s hearing.”
