On Thursday, Rep. Schiff continued to berate meetings between Trump 2016 campaign associates and Russians, despite Barr’s Mueller report summary.

Former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee and Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz (R) said Schiff should step down as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and his security clearance should be revoked.

“I think what [Rep. Schiff] should do is lose his security clearance-- without a security clearance he can't serve on the committee. To lose the trust, albeit on the other side of the aisle, I have never seen,” he said during an interview on “Trish Regan Primetime” Thursday.

Barr’s report revealed that Mueller did not find that the Trump campaign or its associates conspired or coordinated with Russia.

Chaffetz went on to question Schiff’s leadership of the House Intelligence Committee, saying, “Look at the way the committee operated before, with [Democratic Congressman and former House Intel Committee Chair] Dutch Ruppersberger. We have never had this problem. And look in the Senate—with Mark Warner [Democrat and Vice Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee]. We don't have these problems except with Adam Schiff. I don’t think he should be the Chairman, and I don’t think he should have a security clearance.”
