All nine Republicans on the House Intel Committee are turning up the heat on Adam Schiff, calling for him to immediately resign.
They collectively say to Schiff, via a letter read aloud in the hearing, that “we no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation”
This occurred just a few moments ago during a House Intel Committee meeting.
Kevin McCarthy tweeted out the actual letter along with is own call for Schiff to resign:
Nine members of the House Intelligence Cmte have just called for Chairman Adam Schiff’s “immediate resignation as chairman of the committee.” For two years he misled the public on collusion, and the American people no longer have faith in his ability to lead. He should step down. pic.twitter.com/QecxGGeopt

Here’s the letter:
As the letter points out so clearly, Schiff has lied to the American people over and over about evidence of Trump colluding with the Russias and he used his position on the intelligence committee to bolster his credibility.
It’s without question that he absolutely needs to resign. As Buck Sexton noted, “If Adam Schiff does not resign from this intel committee post, there is no level of incompetence and cynicism that could ever warrant resignation from it.”
