President Donald Trump raged against “disgrace” Rep. Adam Schiff and demanded that he be removed from Congress because he “knew he was lying” about the Russia conspiracy theories.
During an interview Wednesday on Fox News, Sean Hannity began discussing how Robert Mueller’s final report vindicates the president.
After noting how Mueller’s report makes it clear that he found no collusion or evidence that Trump ever committed a crime, Hannity took dead aim at Schiff for pushing collusion conspiracy theories the last two years.
Trump jumped in and called on Schiff to resign from Congress.
“I heard they should force him off the committee, or off the committee chair — he should be forced out of office,” Trump said
“He is a disgrace to our country,” the president added.
“And you have plenty of others,” Trump said, arguing that there are many people who agree with him that Schiff should resign.

On Thursday morning, Trump took to Twitter and slammed Schiff again.
“Well, Schiff is a bad guy because he knew he was lying. He’s not a dummy. For a year and a half, he would go on and just lie and lie and leak and call up CNN and others,” he wrote.
Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!

Hannity’s and Trump’s fiery comments came after Mueller submitted his final report to the Department of Justice last Friday.
On Sunday, Barr provided Congress with a 4-page document outlining the main takeaways from Mueller’s report.
Barr said that Mueller’s report makes it clear there he found no collusion or evidence that Trump ever committed a crime.
“The report does not recommend any further indictments, nor did the Special Counsel obtain any sealed indictments that have yet to be made public.,” Barr wrote in his letter to Congress.
Here’s the most important paragraph:
The Special Counsel’s investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. As the report states: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”
Barr wrote that the DOJ will not be bringing any charges against Trump for alleged obstruction or anything else.
So, Trump has been completely cleared in the Russia probe and there are no charges being brought against him for collusion or obstructing justice.
But just like the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are refusing to accept the outcome and will continue to waste taxpayer money to investigate the president.
Many Americans support Trump is his calls for Schiff to resign from Congress after he has spent the last two years pushing lies and fake Trump-Russia collusion theories.
There is no collusion!
