Pelosi defends Schiff, chides GOP "scaredy cats"

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi strongly defended House Intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff on Thursday amid GOP calls for him to resign.

Pelosi called the actions of President Trump and committee Republicans "shameful" and "irresponsible." In an early morning Twitter post, Trump wrote, "Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!" Within hours of Trump's tweet, Republicans on the House committee used the start of a hearing on Russia and efforts to influence U.S. elections to attack Schiff.

They said all nine Republican panel members had signed a letter asking him to quit.

Pelosi, a Democrat, responded at her weekly news conference saying Republicans are, "afraid of the truth.

They're afraid of competence... I'm so proud of the work of Chairman Adam Schiff."
