Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made it clear that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) isn’t going anywhere as she also took out Devin Nunes.
Nancy Pelosi Stands With Adam Schiff
Speaker Pelosi tweeted:
.@RepAdamSchiff’s calm, professional leadership is something we should all be proud of. Unlike his predecessor, his time as Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has been a shining example of how to responsibly carry out the committee’s mission. https://t.co/v30oR8Xi3X

Speaker Pelosi was correct. Rep. Schiff is under attack from Trump and his flying monkey Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) because he is doing a great job, and Donald Trump is clearly unnerved by him.
Here is Trump at his rally in Michigan trying to personally attack Rep. Schiff:
Trump's fear of Adam Schiff is showing. The pencil neck attack isn't going to work either. Trump is both trying to discredit Schiff and distract him from his investigation. pic.twitter.com/J6B1vgO5SA

Trump said, “Little pencil neck Adam Schiff. He’s got the smallest, thinnest neck I’ve ever seen. He is not a long ball hitter. ”
Adam Schiff isn’t going anywhere, and that’s why Trump is so worried
The president is breaking out all of his tricks. He is trying to distract Schiff by luring him into a tabloid-style insult war. He is attacking the House Intelligence Committee chairman in an attempt to discredit the investigation and what they might find, and he is using false claims about “total exoneration” to try to stop the House investigation.
The nation has seen all of this before.
The Speaker was correct. Rep. Schiff is driving Trump up the wall with his calm, professional, and focused leadership. Unlike Devin Nunes, Schiff isn’t going to discredit the committee by being a puppet for Trump.
Rep. Schiff is going anywhere, and you can smell the fear on Trump.
