Adam Schiff Fires Back at Republicans Demanding His Resignation: It’s ‘Deeply Regrettable’

‘Unfortunately, all too often, the members of our committee on the GOP side have fallen in line behind whatever the president wants done’

RUSH EXCERPT:

SCHIFF: “Well, this goes back a couple of years, really, to the decision by chairman Nunes to make his membership mission to be defend the president at all costs, act as the legal defense team for the president. That has continued, regrettably, into this session. The president says “Jump,” and Mr. McCarthy says, “How high?” And unfortunately, all too often, the members of our committee on the GOP side have fallen in line behind whatever the president wants done. It’s deeply regrettable. I can tell you, Wolf, on the positive side of things, the non-russia work continues to go on in a nonpartisan way. The meetings we have in closed session are not like what you saw in open session, where I think the Republicans want it to be theatrical with this device. But it is deeply regrettable that they chose this tactic. And it can’t help but have an impact on the committee.”
