Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee have already demanded that Adam Schiff step down as chair but he has not done so. Now, Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz has introduced legislation calling for Schiff to step down.
House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff May Be No More
Rep. Matt Gaetez (R-FL) on Wednesday filed a resolution to remove House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) from the Committee and revoke his security clearance.
Gaetz appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to explain why he filed the resolution.
“I have filed legislation today, sent to the House, that Adam Schiff needs to be removed from the Intelligence Committee, because how are the rest of us supposed to be able to rely on a man, who you just showed, lied to the American people when he said that there was not spying? Or when he lied and said that there was actual evidence of collusion or clear evidence of collusion?” Gaetz began.
“If Adam Schiff is able to review covert operations and intelligence, and if we have to rely on his representation, our whole system is broken,” Gaetez said. “It would be like putting Lori Loughlin in charge of the college board. It would be like putting Jussie Smollett in charge of the hate crime of the FBI.”

Here’s the video of Gaetz on the Tucker Carlson show:
Take a look at what laughable antics Schiff is up to now.
‘Hilarious’! Congressman who spent over 2 years trying to delegitimize the 2016 election slams Bill Barr as ‘destructive’ to ‘our democratic institutions’
Attorney General Bill Barr telling a Senate committee that he’s going to look into whether FBI and/or DOJ officials illegally surveilled the Trump campaign ahead of the 2016 election has Rep. Adam Schiff living in fear for America’s “democratic institutions.” Don’t be drinking anything when you read this:
The casual suggestion by the nation’s top law enforcement officer of “spying” may please Donald Trump, who rails against a “deep state coup,” but it strikes another destructive blow to our democratic institutions.
The hardworking men and women at the DOJ and FBI deserve better. https://t.co/7kJfsU8Rv0

Schiff is beyond parody. He needs to resign as chair of the Intel Committee immediately.
