Congressman Adam Schiff was called out Thursday morning for two years of railing about “conspiracy” involving President Trump at the outset of a meeting of the House Intelligence Committee, as Republican members of that committee called upon him to step down, according to Mediaite.

The California Democrat, who has been a leader in the attacks on the president for alleged “Russian collusion” – about which the Muller investigation apparently could find nothing approaching conspiracy – was confronted by Rep. Mike Conway (R-TX). All Republicans signed a letter declaring that they “have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties,” according to the Washington Times. The newspaper quoted from the letter, which stated:

Actions - Duty - Chairman - Committee - House

“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.”

Reacting to the demand, Schiff offered a defense of his actions by telling Republicans that they “might think it’s okay” for several things to have occurred during the campaign that raised questions about people involved, including Donald Trump, Jr., “but I don’t.” The full exchange may be seen here.

Schiff has been levelling allegations of collusion for some time, but the Washington Times report said Republicans point to the Clinton campaign as the real source of any possible collusion. It was the Clinton campaign, they assert, that hired someone to collect “disinformation” on Trump from Russia.
