BOOM: #IStandWithSchiff is trending on Twitter after the Donald Trump-led GOP attack on Adam Schiff backfires spectacularly. Schiff blasted Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee for ganging up on him over the Mueller report.
Mike Conaway (R-TX) went after Schiff before a hearing on Russia’s election interference. “Your actions, both past, and present are incompatible with your duty of the chairman of this committee — which alone, in the House of Representatives — has the obligation and authority to provide effective oversight of the U.S. Intelligence community.”
“As such we have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your Constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as chairman of the committee,” Conaway continued.
“I don’t think it’s OK. I think It’s immoral, I think it’s unethical, I think it’s unpatriotic, and yes, I think it’s corrupt, and evidence of collusion,” Schiff fired back.

It’s NOT ok that Trump asked Russia to hack Hillary’s emails.
It’s NOT ok that Trump Jr met w/ a Russian agent to get dirt on Hillary.
It’s NOT ok that Trump’s campaign had 100 contacts w/ Russians.
It’s NOT ok that Trump sided w/ Putin over US Intelligence.#IStandWithSchiff

With so much corruption in Republican ranks, their only defense is to attack their enemies.

Let me get this straight… House GOPers want Adam Schiff to resign over observations he made which may run contrary to a report they haven't seen. Meanwhile, 9,000+ lies later and they still let Donald Trump get off "Scott Free"…#IStandWithSchiff

Trump violates the Constitution, throws kids in cages, defends our enemies, endorses assault, defends Nazis, incites violence, lies thousands of times, inspires domestic terrorism, and obstructs justice, but when Schiff does his job the GOP gets up in arms?#IStandWithSchiff

As 9 Republicans on the House Intel Committee call for Schiff's resignation, including Nunes, remember this:
Schiff can subpoena the report, put anyone in jail if they refuse to provide it & read it into the public record w/out consequence#IStandwithSchiff
