Mueller mania

Kellyanne Conway demands House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff 'resign today'

The White House is continuing its victory lap over Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings, demanding apologies and resignations from Democrats.

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway spoke to Fox & Friends on Monday morning after Attorney General William Barr released his summary of Mueller's report, which he said found no evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. Conway, as a result, called for the resignation of House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), who said hours before Barr's summary was released that there exists "significant evidence" of collusion.

"Adam Schiff should resign," Conway said on Monday. "He has no right as somebody who has been peddling a lie day after day after day." Conway also said during the show that Schiff's resignation should come "today," per Politico.

Schiff said after the release of Barr's summary that the full Mueller report must be released, explaining that Mueller did not find collusion "notwithstanding Russian offers to help Trump’s campaign, their acceptance, and a litany of concealed interactions with Russia." He added that "I trust Mueller’s prosecutorial judgement, but the country must see the evidence." Brendan Morrow
