Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee handed Chairman Adam Schiff a letter at a Thursday morning hearing demanding he resign from the panel. Despite special counsel Robert Mueller concluding that President Trump did not collude with Russia in the 2016 presidential election, Schiff is holding fast to his belief that it did happen. Russia offering Trump's team dirt on Hillary Clinton's campaign "is corrupt and evidence of collusion," Schiff said at today's hearing.
A few hours later, two more of Schiff's colleagues, Reps. Mark Green (R-TN) and Tim Burchett (R-TN) poked fun at him by making a video announcing they'd found the manila "Schiff Report" folder that proved Trump did collude with Russia after all.
"There's got to be evidence of collusion in here right?" Green asks Burchett. Yet, when they open the folder, nothing spills out. "There's no proof!" they conclude.
Poor guy. Other people were making fun of him too. Donald Trump Jr. labeled Schiff "the leader of the tinfoil hat party," while others took some amusing screenshots of his outburst at today's intelligence committee meeting.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had enough of the bullying. At her weekly press briefing, she said that Republicans who are demanding Schiff resign are "scaredy-cats," while heralding Schiff as a "patriot."
