In a Thursday morning tweet, President Trump said that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff should be forced to resign from Congress for “lying and leaking.”
“Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!” the president said in an early morning tweet.
The tweet comes after Schiff told The Washington Post that he believes evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia “undoubtedly” exists and can be found by his committee, even though a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation said there was not evidence to support that conclusion.
Schiff on Monday dismissed calls for his resignation.
“I’m more than used to attacks from my GOP colleagues, and I would expect nothing less,” he said.
