Pelosi Delivers Fiery Defense Of Schiff After GOP Reps Demand He Resign As Intel Committee Chair [VIDEO]

Politico reports:

The House Intelligence Committee devolved into bitter infighting Thursday, as all nine Republicans demanded Chairman Adam Schiff resign his post and the California Democrat responded with a blistering account of “evidence of collusion” between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia.

“We have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties,” said Rep. Mike Conaway (R-Texas), who led the House’s Russia probe last year.

Conaway said Schiff’s insistence that there was ample evidence of collusion were “incompatible with your duties as the chairman of this committee.” And he said the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report — which haven’t yet been viewed by any members of Congress — “conclusively refute” Schiff’s allegations.

The Washington Post reports:

During an interview Wednesday with Fox’s Sean Hannity, Trump said Schiff “should be forced out of office. He is a disgrace to our country.” He later added on Twitter that Schiff “should be forced to resign from Congress.”

Republicans in Congress have stopped short of calling for Schiff to lose his congressional seat. But the campaign to unseat him as chairman began Monday, as the president’s top advisers and congressional Republicans, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), called on him to resign.
