The nine Republican members of the House Intelligence Committee signed a letter calling for Chairman Adam B. Schiff to resign as chairman a few days after Attorney General William P. Barr told Congress that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report found no evidence President Donald Trump colluded with Russia. “Despite these findings, you continue to proclaim to the media that there is significant evidence of collusion,” Rep. K. Michael Conaway said during a committee hearing. “As such, we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties … and urge your immediate resignation as chairman of the committee.”
