Shortly after the Mueller investigation concluded, U.S. Attorney General William Barr stated that ‘no’ collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was found.

Congressional Democrats, who were expected to hear that  Trump did collude with Putin, took issue with Barr’s short assessment of the Mueller findings, and have been pressing for the entire report to be furnished.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been one of the loudest anti-Trump voices that continues to claim there is clear evidence of collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia to subvert the 2016 elections, or engage in other nefarious dealings.

During a recent rally in Grand Rapids, MI, President Trump singled out Schiff and levied one of his signature dress-downs when he called the California congress man a “pencil neck.”

Trump even launched a fundraising effort with these “pencil neck” t-shirts.

Now Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz (R), a true Trump loyalist and the “Yosemite Sam” of Florida (Gaetz pushed open carry legislation while in the Florida House) has filed his Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses Resolution” – or “Pencil Act” –  where he calls for Schiff to resign from the House Intelligence Committee.

Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz unveiled his new resolution targeting House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for his handling of the Russian collusion theory, during Tucker Carlson’s Wednesday show.

 “Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Congressman Adam Schiff should be removed from the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House and that his security clearance should be revoked immediately,” the resolution begins. “Whereas Congressman Adam Schiff is the Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House of Representatives.”

 “I have filed legislation today, sent to the House, that Adam Schiff needs to be removed from the Intelligence Committee, because how are the rest of us supposed to be able to rely on a man, who you just showed, lied to the American people when he said that there was not spying? Or when he lied and said that there was actual evidence of collusion or clear evidence of collusion?” Gaetz began.

“If Adam Schiff is able to review covert operations and intelligence, and if we have to rely on his representation, our whole system is broken,” he continued. “It would be like putting Lori Loughlin in charge of the college board. It would be like putting Jussie Smollett in charge of the hate crime of the FBI.”-Rep. Matt Gaetz (The DC)
