White House advisor and counselor to President Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, appeared on Fox & Friends Monday, and she had choice words for Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee.

“Talk about an oxymoron,” she said. “This man heads the Intelligence Committee in the House. He said he believed that the [alleged Trump-Russia] scandal was of the size and scope probably bigger than Watergate, and there was plenty of evidence of collusion. He oughta resign today. He’s been on every TV show 50 times a day for practically the last two years, promising Americans that this President would be impeached or indicted.”

Watch the full 10-minute interview here:

On Sunday, Conway had tweeted, “Congratulations ⁦@POTUS⁩ ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩. Today you won the 2016 election all over again. And got a gift for the 2020 election. They’ll never get you because they’ll never ‘get’ you.”

Schiff on Sunday also tweeted, saying, “Mueller spent two years investigating obstruction of justice and found evidence that “does not exonerate” Trump. Barr took two days to set aside that evidence. The entire report must be published and evidence provided to Congress so the American people can judge for themselves.”

Special Counselor Robert Mueller late Friday filed his long-awaited report on whether or not President Trump, or anyone associated with the Trump Presidential campaign, colluded with Russia in 2016, and whether or not Russia interfered in the 2016 Presidential election. Mueller has been investigating Trump-Russia ties for nearly two years.

The report was reviewed by Attorney General William Barr over the weekend, and Barr released an initial, brief report on Mueller’s findings on Sunday afternoon.

“… The Special Counsel did not find that the Trump campaign, or anyone associated with it, conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in these efforts, despite multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign,” Barr said in his letter.

“As the [Mueller] report states: “[T]he investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities,” he pointed out.

“The Special Counsel states that ‘while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him,'” Barr noted.

“Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and I have concluded that the evidence developed during the Special Counsel’s investigation is not sufficient to establish that the President committed an obstruction-of-justice offense,” he added.

Mueller is said to be resigning in the coming days.
