House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff on Thursday, calling the nine Republicans on the committee who have called for his resignation “scaredy-cats.”
NEW: "I'm so proud of the work of Chairman Adam Schiff," Speaker Pelosi says after GOP members of House Intel Committee call for his resignation.

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel says this is a move Pelosi may regret in time.
Pelosi undoubtedly feels the need to defend her chairmen. But she may well regret doing so here. Ds have a choice to make–to promote a policy agenda, or cling to the demolished collusion narrative. Schiff is head clinger. https://t.co/10UQ1iQkux

This is certainly going to be a clip referred back to if Schiff does take the fall later on.

The “so proud” comment is a head-scratcher as well.
What exactly is she proud of? https://t.co/c8QEBJdKyV

All GOP members of the Intelligence Committee joined with President Trump in calling on Schiff to resign, saying they have no faith in his ability to perform his Constitutional duties.
