Brutal: At Opening of Another Hearing on Russia, Republicans Just Issued a Letter Directly to Adam Schiff Demanding His Resignation

At the beginning of another House Intelligence Committee hearing about Russia Thursday morning, all nine Republican members submitted a letter for the record calling for Chairman Adam Schiff to step down.

"Since prior to the inauguration of President Trump in January 2017, you have been at the center of a well-orchestrated media campaign claiming, among other things, the Trump campaign colluded with the Russia government. Indeed, before the appointment of Robert Mueller as Special Counsel, you alleged during one of your frequent television interviews that there was 'more than circumstantial evidence' of collusion but you could not 'go into particulars,'" the letter states. "You continue to proclaim in the media that there is 'significant evidence of collusion.' You further states you 'will continue to investigate the counterintelligence issues. That is the president or people around him comprised in any way by a hostile foreign power?' You willingness to promote a demonstrably false narrative is alarming."

"The findings of the Special Counsel conclusively refute your past and present assertions and have exposed you as having abused your position to knowingly promote false information, having damaged the integrity of this Committee, and undermined faith in U.S. government institutions," the letter continues. "Your actions both past and present are incompatible with your duty as 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. 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 this Committee."

The letter was signed by Republican Congressman Devin Nunes (Ranking Member), Michael Conaway, Michael Turner, Brad Wenstrup, Chis Stewart, Eric Crawford, Elise Stefanik, Will Hurd and John Ratcliffe. 

Even after Robert Mueller found no collusion during his two-year-long Special Counsel investigation, Schiff continues to shamelessly push the claim President Trump and members of his campaign colluded with Russians to win the 2016 election.

President Trump called for Schiff to resign Thursday morning. 

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway did the same earlier this week.
