The Honorable Adam Schiff
Room 2269 Rayburn House Office Building
Independence Ave. & S. Capitol St. SW
Washington, D.C. 20515
Dear Congressman Schiff:
In this organization’s letter to you dated October 14, 2019, we informed you that if we should make a reasonable determination that you, your staff, or any of the House Intelligence Committee attorneys were involved in the third-party “whistleblower” fiasco, we would call for your immediate resignation.
We have now made that determination, and we are joining with other organizations and fair-minded voters across the country to call for your immediate resignation, not solely from the House Intelligence Committee, but from the U.S. House of Representatives. For the following reasons, we believe you are unfit to continue to serve as a representative of the American people:
1. By your own comments, it is apparent that you have repeatedly lied to the American people, insisting that you had no contact with the third-party whistleblower. The New York Times confirmed that deception when it reported that one of your committee aides had been contacted by a CIA officer before the actual filing of the complaint against the President, and subsequent to that initial contact, the whistleblower himself spoke with an Intelligence Committee aide. Even The Washington Post awarded you four Pinocchio’s for that debacle.
2 You were recorded on audiotape conversing with what you believed to have been Russian informants attempting to secure unsavory information about the President of the United States. You even asked those “informants” if Putin was aware of their “information.”You told them that you would “get back to them.” In summary, you were doing precisely what you have accused President Trump of doing.
3. The opportunity to rebut the charges. And we are especially repulsed when the leaked information from your “secret” committee meetings has been twisted to conform to the Democratic agenda. We repeat what we stated in our earlier letter, we need only to see the complete testimony; your interpretation is neither needed nor quite frankly, based on your record or deception, believed.
4. Based on the Democratic Party’s commencement and subsequent management of its “impeachment inquiry,” we have concluded that you and other members of your party have colluded in a plot, or a coup, if you will, in an attempt to overthrow a duly elected president of the United States.
For these and other reasons, not only are we demanding that you resign immediately from the United States House of Representatives, but we will also be investigating to determine if your nefarious activities are grounds for disbarment. At the very least, your behavior warrants severe reprimand.
Cc: President Donald Trump
