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.”

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel says this is a move Pelosi may regret in time.

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.

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.

We shall see.
