Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee are echoing President Donald Trump's call for Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) to step down.


Among them, GOP Rep. Mike Conaway of Texas, who just claimed Schiff has abused his authority.

"We have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties," Conaway said in a speech during a Committee hearing, sitting just feet away from the Chairman.

In a 4-minute response, Chairman Schiff accused Republicans on the Committee of thinking "it's OK that the Russians offered dirt on a Democratic candidate," then detailed about a dozen acts of the Trump campaign that "corrupt and evidence of collusion."

"You might say that's all okay," he said. "You might say that's just what you need to do to win, but I don't think it's okay. I think it's immoral. I think it's unethical. I think it's unpatriotic. And yes, I think it's corrupt and evidence of collusion."Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee are echoing President Donald Trump's call for Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) to step down.
