Elder Patriot- This is a breaking story.
Fox News is reporting that Republicans on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence have sent a letter to the committee’s chairman, Adam Schiff, demanding that he vacate his chairmanship.
Earlier this morning President Trump called for Schiff’s removal.
Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!

Trump’s demand comes just days after Special Counsel Robert Mueller released his findings that there was no evidence of collusion.
Schiff, ignored Mueller’s determination following a nearly two-year long investigation. Instead, Schiff doubled down on his charges that the president conspired with the Russians during the 2016 election.
Schiff told the Washington Post on Tuesday: “Undoubtedly, there is collusion. We will continue to investigate the counterintelligence issues.”
When pressed for evidence Schiff couldn’t, or wouldn’t, offer any.
Schiff has made himself into the modern-day Joe McCarthy, only worse.
Last night Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity that Schiff should be removed, by force, if necessary.
“I heard they should force him off the committee, or off the committee chair. He should be forced out of office. He is a disgrace to our country.”
President Trump is concerned that Schiff’s insistence that he colluded with Russia, despite the fact that the FBI, the special counsel, the Senate Intelligence Committee, and the House Intelligence Committee all failed to turn up any evidence could be considered criminal because it only serves to keep the country divided.
We will continue to follow this story as it develops and post the Republican’s letter as soon as it becomes available.
