President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans strongly believe that Russia collusion delusion conspiracy theorist Adam Schiff ought to resign immediately from his post as the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, and they’re not afraid to tell him that.

“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,” Republican congressman Mike Conaway said right to Schiff’s face during an explosive clash Thursday on Capitol Hill.

“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.”

Listen:

All nine Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee signed the letter that Conaway mentioned in his fiery speech, including Devin Nunes, Mike Turner, Brad Wenstrup, Charles Stewart, Rick Crawford, Elise Stefanik, Will Hurd and John Ratcliffe.

The letter may be read in full below:

The president has also joined the call for Schiff to resign.

“Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!” he tweeted Thursday morning.

Schiff responded to the calls for his resignation in the exact same manner that socialist congresswoman responded to being called out for her outrageous “Green New Deal”: by throwing a fit. Except his fit was even more delusional and outrageous than that of his peer.

In a rambling 5-minute monologue, the House Intelligence Committee chair repeated every single one of his Russia collusion delusion conspiracy theories as proof of something. As proof of what exactly? You may have to speak to his psychiatrist to find out.

According to Mediaite, Schiff listed “all of the [alleged] ties between President Donald Trump, his campaign, and Russian interference in the 2016 election, including the Trump Tower meeting, Paul Manafort’s ties to oligarchs, Roger Stone’s ties to Wikileaks, and Jared Kushner’s attempts to establish a backchannel with Russians.”

“You might say that’s all okay,” Schiff said. “You might say that’s just what you need to do to win, but I don’t think it’s okay. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical. I think it’s unpatriotic. And yes, I think it’s corrupt and evidence of collusion.”

“I have always said that the question of whether this amounts to conspiracy is another matter. But I do not think that conduct, criminal or not, is OK. And the day we do think that’s OK is the day we will look back and say that is the day America lost its way.”

Never mind that special counsel Robert Mueller has already ruled that collusion never occurred.

“[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” Mueller wrote in the report he submitted to Attorney General Bill Barr last Friday.

Listen to Schiff’s rambling rant below:

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE MISSING …

And never mind that both Barr and Deputy Attorney have already ruled that the president never obstructed justice either.

“In making this determination, we noted that the Special Counsel recognized that ‘the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference,’ and that, while not determinative, the absence of such evidence bears upon the President’s intent with respect to obstruction,” Barr wrote in his public letter Sunday.

He explained that since Trump didn’t collude with Russian operatives to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, that means there was nothing for him to hide/obstruct.

Read his letter below:

After Schiff concluded his rant, he refused to allow his Republican colleagues to respond to his attacks and smears: “I will not yield!” he bellowed like a dictator when asked to let others speak.

“If you’re going to say ‘we think,’ you ought to allow us to speak of what we think,” Congressman Mike Turner tried to argue, only to be ignored and silenced by Schiff.

“You’re not recognized,” Schiff said.
