Conway: Adam Schiff Needs to Resign over Russia Collusion Hoax

Kellyanne Conway told Fox & Friends Monday morning that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, should resign after Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted his report stating that the Trump campaign had not colluded with the Russian government.

Conway isn’t the only one calling for Schiff to resign. Several Republicans are clamoring for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to give up his gavel.

Trump and senior White House aides, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and other allies of the president on Capitol Hill raced to paint the California Democrat as an overeager disciple of a theory debunked by the Justice Department in a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings released Sunday.

Schiff was pummeled repeatedly on Fox News and other right-leaning media during the last two days. Trump himself picked up on the anti-Schiff tirade, retweeting a “Fox and Friends” interview where the California Democrat was excoriated.

McCarthy called on Schiff to step down as Intelligence Committee chairman during an interview on Monday.

“[Schiff] owes the American public an apology,” McCarthy said. “Schiff has met the standard that he has imposed on other members of Congress of when they should step back from their positions. He has exceeded that standard, and there is no question he should step down from the Intel chairmanship.”

“You. Have. Been. Exposed,” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) in a tweet excoriating Schiff. “You used your unique position on the Intel Cmte to convince the American people that you had access to evidence of collusion. You lied and misled in order to pursue your political agenda. Move on.”
