The Republicans are going to resign, calls for house Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, or give up his Committee post for repeated claims of collusion between President Trump – 2016-campaign, and Russian agents press.

Now, Robert Mueller probe has shown no signs of collusion, White house Advisor, Kelly Anne Conway was to say the vocal in the call for the ship’s withdrawal – “Fox & Friends” on Monday, the California Democrat “should resign today.”


“He’s been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years, promises to the Americans that this President is accused of would be either, or accused of,” said Conway. “He has no right, as someone who is peddling a lie, day after day after day, unchallenged. Unchallenged and not under oath. Someone should give him evidence under oath, and said, ‘where is it?'”

Conway continued her calls for ship’s resignation on Tuesday in an interview on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” said the ship should be put under oath for claims, the evidence of collusion between the trump team and Russia.

“He said there was evidence of collusion in plain sight, that he knew it,” she said. “If he has evidence to put him under oath.”

For two years, the ship routinely ominous warnings sounded about what Special Counsel Robert Mueller at Trumpf.


In March 2017, Schiff told MSNBC that “it is more than circumstantial evidence” of relations between Russia and the trump employee. In December of the same year, the ship, said on CNN: “to help The Russians offered, the campaign accepted the help. The Russians gave help, and the President has to help. This is pretty damning, whether it is proof beyond a reasonable doubt of the conspiracy, or not.”

And in may of last year, the ship, told ABC that the Russian hackers of the Democratic National Committee E-Mails, is “like Watergate in the sense that you had a break in of the Democratic headquarters, in this case, a virtual, not a physical break, and you had a President as part of a cover-up.” The ship later said that the Russia-investigation “in size and scope, probably about Watergate.”

In spite of the ship claims that Müller is no evidence for the coordination or conspiracy with trump found his campaign and the Russian government, attorney General William Barr wrote a letter to the Sunday released.

Not so far gone to leave as Conway in calling for the ship, the office, house Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said, that ship is not guilty “- an apology to the American public” and should resign from his post as head of the intelligence committee.


“He owes an apology to the American public,” McCarthy said. “There is no place in Adam ship in the world, or in Congress, he should be the chair of the intel Committee.”

McCarthy added: “There is no way he could Committee the intel-and he should step back.”


Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel echoed McCarthy’s comments in an interview with Fox Business Network, said that the ship – together with the in-house-judiciary-Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-NY, should apologize to trump for the claims of the Russian agreements.

“You should have said to be removed from their chairs,” McDaniel. “She owes the American people an apology. You owe this President an apology, and you have to do a work, to heal, this is the democracy, because this is our country we’re talking about.”

Despite the withering criticism from GOP leaders and the call to the step-down, ship defiantly remained, repeated on Monday his claim that the evidence of collusion is in “plain sight”. He said he does not accept Mueller’s conclusion that he could prove a criminal conspiracy with Russia, but said that his Committee is going to go the investigative work.

“For whatever reason, over the last year and a half, the President viewed me as a threat,” he told The Associated Press. “His allies in Congress have also comes to his assistance in the attack on me. It comes with the job, and I take it as a sign of the effectiveness that you feel the need to go to me.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said to delete the calls, the ship had “absolutely ridiculous.” She consulted with the ship and the other Committee leaders over the weekend, as Barr notified Congress of Müller ‘ s combined report and the details.


A Pelosi aide said the ship was attacked because he was “an excellent job.”

“Democrats will not be intimidated by the White house or Congress-Republican,” spokeswoman Ashley Etienne said. “We are not driving distracted as the position of the release of the full Mueller report and the underlying evidence, and we will continue to have legitimate oversight, because that is what the Constitution requires.”


The ship also plans to move forward with a congressional investigation, in the Trump campaign for the contacts with Russia. While the intelligence committee, on Monday, an interview with Trump’s associate Felix Sater delayed ‘ about its efforts in 2016 to strike a deal for a Trump Tower in Moscow, the ship has vowed to continue the investigation.

The California Democrat, a letter signed on Monday with his colleagues on the house Committee, the Chairman of the full Mueller calling for report of 2. April.

“Müller was not enough evidence of the conspiracy, offering, in spite of Russian aid Trump’s campaign, whose acceptance of, and a litany, which tweeted, in the hidden interactions with Russia,” the ship. “I trust Muller, the public Prosecutor’s office ruling, but the country needs to see the evidence.”
