Though he did not call for Nunes to step down, Schiff said the committee needed to decide whether the chair should remain.
Schiff takes it up a notch, tells both The Beast and MSNBC he's seen "more than circumstantial" Trump-Russia proof.
Nunes said he alerted House Speaker Paul Ryan about the collection and is traveling to the White House Wednesday afternoon. Congressman Schiff, a former federal prosecutor, publicly urged Nunes to decide if he is going to work to protect the American people or work as "a surrogate of the White House". And shouldn't we all be a little alarmed that a congresscritter with a security clearance extending into the ionosphere is babbling intelligence information into a bank of microphones?
The revelation follows weeks of sometimes surreal political rope-a-dope over a Twitter post by Trump in which he asked how "low" former President Barack Obama had gone to "tap my phones" during the "very sacred election process". The chairman also said the committee does not know yet whether the information was picked up at Trump tower and said it was not part of a criminal investigation.
Third, Nunes flatly denied any link between what he saw and the Russian intelligence probe: "None of this surveillance was related to Russia, or the investigation of Russian activities".
