Every single Republican on the House Intelligence Committee called for Adam Schiff to step down, on Thursday morning. Schiff has been criticized for leaking from classified meetings. To add to that, he’s been accused of leaking false information from classified meetings, therefore using his position to mislead the public on Russian collusion.
Schiff has repeatedly claimed there is 'direct evidence' of Russian collusion and that he has seen 'more than circumstantial evidence'. All the other Republicans on the committee as well as the Mueller team have disagreed. In their letter to Schiff:
“Your actions both past and present are incompatible with your duty as Chairman of this Committee,” the letter stated. “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.”
Imagine the consequence for a Republican who did this same thing to, oh I don't know, Obama. Anyone think they'd still be in office? President Trump has joined in asking for Schiff to resign from Congress.
“Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!”
How much hate has been stoked by the blatant lies from those in a position with access to Intelligence information? How much violence? There have been, no doubt, serious consequences from the lies he's told over the last couple of years. There is no place for this in our government but, hey, maybe he can get a power hour anchor job over at CNN or MSNBC.
