Rep. Adam Schiff continued to double-down on his baseless accusations of Russia-Trump collusion this week; accusing Attorney General William Barr of simply “doing the President’s bidding.”
“When you hear the Attorney General say he wants to look in to what he calls ‘spying’ into the President’s campaign, what’s your first reaction?” asked a reporter with ABC News.

“It’s stunning to hear the top law enforcement officer in the country talk so cavalierly about spying on a political campaign. This must be very pleasing for Donald Trump who wants to create a narrative that he’s the victim of some Deep State coup,” said Schiff.
“The Attorney General has a higher responsibility than simply doing the bidding of the President of the United States,” he added.
BACKLASH BUILDS: More Lawmakers Call for Schiff to RESIGN from House Intel Committee
A growing number of Republican lawmakers and national figures called for Rep. Adam Schiff to resign from the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday; citing years of non-stop and baseless allegations regarding President Trump “colluding” with foreign nationals.
“He’s been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years, promising Americans that this president would either be impeached or indicted,” said senior presidential advisor Kellyanne Conway Monday. “He has no right, as somebody who has been peddling a lie, day after day after day, unchallenged.”
“He owes an apology to the American public,” added House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. “There is no place in Adam Schiff’s world or in Congress that he should be chair of the intel committee.”
“There is no way he could lead the intel committee and he should step back,” McCarthy added.
“They should be removed from their chairmanships,” said RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. “They owe the American people an apology. They owe this president an apology, and they have work to do to heal this democracy because this is our country we are talking about.”
