Learn who the minority (aka Republican) members of the House Intelligence Committee are so you can vote them out in 2020.
In late March, the nine minority members of the House Intelligence Committee (all Republicans) demanded that Chairman Adam Schiff resign his post.
This led to Schiff’s epic “You Might Think That’s OK” speech.
This story, from CBS, covers the Republicans’ demands and includes a link to Schiff’s response:
The Republicans are scared of the powers that Schiff has to expose the president. He can subpoena the Mueller Report, and he has the right to see it in its unredacted form.
Schiff is no Devin Nunes, and that’s a good thing. Schiff is doing the right thing with his powers, and that terrifies his GOP colleagues.
Their call for Schiff to step down is wholly cynical, and another instance of Republicans putting party over country in the service of protecting Trump.
We at OTYCD thought you’d find it useful to have a full list of the nine minority members so you can help vote them out in November 2020.
If any of these folks are your House rep, call and tell them they should be ashamed to call for Schiff’s resignation. Also tell them you support Schiff’s attempts to let the public know what’s in the Mueller Report.
This page will be updated as we get closer to November 2020, and closer to knowing who their Democratic challengers are. [We’re preparing this post in late March 2019, well before most candidates will have declared.]
