“I’m so proud of the work of Chairman Adam Schiff; in stark contrast to the irresponsible and almost-criminal behavior of the previous chair of the committee. So, what is the President afraid of? Is he afraid of the truth?” asked Pelosi.

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.”
