Nancy Pelosi, along with Chuck Schumer and Adam Schiff have called for House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes to recuse himself from the investigation into President Trump’s ties to Russia.
They believe he has been compromised by colluding with President Trump on the “Wiretap Scandal,” even though there is absolutely no evidence of such.

Earlier Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said that Speaker Ryan (R-Wisc.) should remove Nunes from the chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee while citing similar concerns to that of Pelosi.
Pelosi released a statement from her Twitter account saying, “The Chair of the House Intelligence has a serious responsibility to the Congress and to the Country. Chairman Nunes’ discredited behavior has tarnished that office.”
“Speaker Ryan must insist that Chairman Nunes at least recuse himself from the Trump-Russia investigation immediately,” she concluded. “That leadership is long overdue.”
Schiff spoke to CNN’s Congressional correspondent, Phill Mattingly, to explain his position on the matter.
“It was no secret that he was on the transition team,” Mattingly challenged him, “and up to this point you’ve been OK with him leading this investigation, was it just the visit to the White House that changed everything in your view.”
