Congressional Chaos Ensues as House Members Confront Adam Schiff

Adam Schiff’s heated exchange with fellow Congressmen was caught on tape…and it is WILD.

For every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction.  This is a Newtonian law of physics, first and foremost, but also a fine analogy for human behavior as well.

The “action” in question today is the finalization of the Mueller report, complete with the caveat that there would be no indictment of the President.

The “reaction” in our case is…well…everything else; from investigations into the Mueller probe’s impetus, all the way down to pettiest of public statements by a number of prominent politicos who fall on either side of the aisle.

Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff has been one of the most vocal critics of the report’s findings, and has continued to maintain that there was “collusion” between the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

His colleagues are not enthused, however, and Schiff is facing harsh and abrupt calls for his resignation over his continued belief.

At the outset of a House intel hearing on Thursday morning, Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX) called for Schiff to step down — a call which he said was supported by all nine Republican members of the committee.

“Your actions, both past, and present are incompatible with your duty of the chairman of this committee — which alone, in the House of Representatives — has the obligation and authority to provide effective oversight of the U.S. Intelligence community,” Conaway said. “As such 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. Mr. Chairman, this letter is signed by all nine members of the Republican side of the committee, and I ask unanimous consent that it be entered into the record at today’s hearing.”

The President himself had earlier weighed in on the subject, also suggesting that Adam Schiff step down for his role in propagating what Trump himself often referred to as a “hoax”.
