Several members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus are calling House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to recuse himself in the lower chamber’s impeachment inquiry of President Trump.
In a Wednesday letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the GOP lawmakers argued that Schiff isn’t suited for a role in the probe due to his panel’s correspondence with the whistleblower who filed a complaint concerning President Trump’s interactions with Ukraine. That whistleblower communicated with an Intelligence Committee aide before filing the complaint, but the staffer never shared the person’s identity with Schiff.
The article goes on to state the following:
The conservative lawmakers assert that the revelations make Schiff “a potential fact witness” and claim that the California congressman’s previous actions show he’s not up for “this serious responsibility.”
Lawmakers signing the letter include Republican Reps. Andrew Biggs (Ariz.), Mark Meadows (N.C.), and Louie Gohmert (Texas).
This afternoon, several colleagues from the House @freedomcaucus and I sent a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, requesting the immediate recusal of Chairman Adam Schiff as the head of the unauthorized impeachment inquiry of @POTUS @realDonaldTrump. https://t.co/zeF3hMUnUs

Being in contact with a key witness and then lying about it renders Adam Schiff unqualified to lead a fair and just inquiry. Members of the House @FreedomCaucus call on Speaker Pelosi to request the immediate recusal of Adam Schiff. pic.twitter.com/zYpK5Z0DAl
