White House counselor Kellyanne Conway is calling for Rep. Adam Schiff’s head in the wake of Robert Mueller’s report.
Conway blasted the California Democrat and House Intelligence Committee chairman on ‘Fox & Friends’ Monday saying he “ought to resign today” for “peddling a lie.”
Attorney General Bill Barr stated in a letter released Sunday that the special counsel’s investigation “did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia.” But Schiff, who has launched a wide-ranging investigation despite Mueller’s findings, declared Sunday on CBS’ “Face The Nation” that there is still “significant evidence of collusion” between the Russian government and Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Conway remarked on the “oxymoron” of Schiff heading the Intelligence Committee as she spoke to “Fox & Friends” about the Democrat’s targeted attack on the president.
“He ought to resign today,” she said. “He’s been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years, promising Americans that this president would either be impeached or indicted.”
“Adam Schiff should resign. He has no right as somebody who has been peddling a lie, day after day after day, unchallenged and not under oath,” Conway added. “Somebody should have put him under oath and said ‘you have evidence, where is it’?
“Because Bob Mueller already ran the fair and the full investigation and any partisan and politicized investigation from here on in will never have the credibility of the Mueller investigation and the credibility of Attorney General Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, what they did here,” she said.
Conway also called for an apology from those who pressed the collusion narrative for two years with no evidence.
“Those who let this lie fly for two years, haranguing and harassing and trying to embarrass and worse, those of us connected to the 2016 campaign, beginning with the president and his own family really do owe people — owe America an apology,” she said.
“You came up with nothing — no obstructive conduct, no collusion. No more indictments,” Conway said on Muller’s investigation, which included more than 2,800 subpoenas as well as 13 requests for foreign governments for evidence and about 500 witness interviews, according to Fox News.

Conway is not the only one calling for Schiff to face consequences for promoting allegations of collusion. Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter on Sunday to roast the lawmaker as the “leader of the tinfoil hat brigade.”
Has anyone heard from slimy Adam #fullofschiff Schiff today? I mean it must be embarrassing to have have spent the last 2 years as the leader of the tinfoil hat brigade and have it all come crashing down so quick.
I’m legitimately concerned for his mental state.

Schiff called for the special counsel’s report to be delivered to Congress despite acknowledging that he trusts “Mueller’s prosecutorial judgement.”
Mueller did not find sufficient evidence to establish conspiracy, notwithstanding Russian offers to help Trump’s campaign, their acceptance, and a litany of concealed interactions with Russia.
I trust Mueller’s prosecutorial judgement, but the country must see the evidence.

On Monday, Trump Jr. asked Americans to, “hold the conspiracy caucus in Congress accountable.”
It’s time to hold the conspiracy caucus in Congress accountable. These Democrat Truthers spent the last 2 years knowingly lying to the American people about collusion. They’ve disgraced their offices and should step down. #CollusionTruthers pic.twitter.com/YlgWyYQIel

Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw told Schiff to “move on.”
You. Have. Been. Exposed.
Stop the charade. There was no collusion.
You used your unique position on the Intel Cmte to convince the American people that you had access to evidence of collusion.
You lied and misled in order to pursue your political agenda. Move on. https://t.co/9GRVkBmeVS

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy also echoed Conway’s words, saying Schiff “owes the American public an apology.”
“Schiff has met the standard that he has imposed on other members of Congress of when they should step back from their positions. He has exceeded that standard, and there is no question he should step down from the Intel chairmanship,” the California Republican said Monday, according to Politico.
Twitter users resoundingly agreed with Conway.
She’s 100% right and every politician who’s done that should do the same.

She’s right. But the lefties won’t accept Mueller’s report that he has found no collusion. This was a 2 year investigation and nothing was found on President Donald J Trump. Yet the lefties still do not accept it.

I agree with her.

Not only should he resign but he and Swalwell should be investigated for their part in the first major “coup” to attempt to unseat a setting us POTUS. @DOJ @FBI America contact your representative and demand action. Will Congress get on with Americans Business???? RT

Schiff’s resignation should come in the form of an indictment.
