All nine Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee have called upon the committee’s chairman, Democrat Adam Schiff, to resign, arguing that he no longer has the credibility to hold his current position.
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 is Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas saying there is no longer any faith that Schiff can perform his Constitutional duties.
Rep. Mike @ConawayTX11 to Chair @RepAdamSchiff: "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 the committee." pic.twitter.com/ly43qIqByH

This comes after President Trump told Sean Hannity Wednesday night that Schiff should resign, saying he is a “bad guy” who knew he was lying when saying repeatedly that he had evidence of collusion.

Trump reiterated that Thursday morning on Twitter.
Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!

Of course, Schiff isn’t going down without a fight.
Wow — after all Republican members of the House Intel Committee file a letter asking @RepAdamSchiff to resign over Russiagate, Schiff ticks through the major pieces of evidence indicating collusion and says, "you might think it's OK… I don't think that's OK!" pic.twitter.com/TtyUiI0w8q

Remember, Schiff is the same guy who insisted that former Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes (R) resign his position because he met once with a source.
As we now know, Schiff met and then some with his own witness, Michael Cohen.
In hearing this a.m. all 9 GOP members of the House intel committee call on Chairman Adam Schiff to step down. He responds by citing the same litany of material he has long promoted, and which Mueller found did not constitute the collusion Schiff has repeatedly alleged.

Will Democrat leadership force him out?
