Don’t expect democrats to do anything about it though. They won’t.
But at least Gaetz is trying.
He has asked that the House remove Schiff from the committee and revoke his security clearance.
Schiff has made it abundantly clear that he cannot be trusted with classified intelligence. And, his deluded belief that ‘collusion’ still existed between President Trump and Russia is borderline psychopath.

Then the republican Representative appeared on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to explain why he had to take such a measure.
“I have filed legislation today, sent to the House, that Adam Schiff needs to be removed from the Intelligence Committee, because how are the rest of us supposed to be able to rely on a man, who you just showed, lied to the American people when he said that there was not spying? Or when he lied and said that there was actual evidence of collusion or clear evidence of collusion?” Gaetz began.
“If Adam Schiff is able to review covert operations and intelligence, and if we have to rely on his representation, our whole system is broken,” Gaetez said.
“It would be like putting Lori Loughlin in charge of the college board. It would be like putting Jussie Smollett in charge of the hate crime of the FBI.”
A number of other people, including the nine Republicans on the Intelligence Committee, have called on Schiff to resign and be replaced with someone who will at least appear sane.
Schiff has spent the last two years pushing the Russian collusion narrative, and during that time, he actually was photographed speaking with Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS.
Even after Attorney General William Barr, who by the way asked Mueller to review his findings, stated that there was absolutely no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, Schiff has stuck by his illogical dreams.
Moreover, Barr explained that it wasn’t because the campaign didn’t have an opportunity… they had plenty.
The FBI was working overtime trying to get someone, anyone to do something illegal, including multiple entrapment attempts.
But, they failed.
The best the Special Counsel could come up with was charges against Paul Manafort from years before he worked for the Trump campaign… and he was simply guilty of a usually ignored law from 1938.
Yet. Crazy deluded Schiff still wants more taxpayer money wasted on investigations and testimony, simply because he knows he failed to deliver for his globalist masters.
