Ever since House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) went public with information suggestion that data had been collected on the Trump transition team, there has been political chaos.
Some saw the revelation as vindication that President Trump had been right about the “wiretapping” all along:

Others, like Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), and former Vice President Joe Biden, took issue with Nunes’ decision to inform the White House before he presented the information to the full committee.
But Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took things a step further, demanding that Nunes be removed as chairman of the House Intelligence Committee.
Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer on Monday called for the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee to resign.
The longtime senator from New York accused Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., of acting “more like a partisan” for President Donald Trump than the chairman of a committee that helps oversee espionage and sensitive intelligence gathering.
“Without further ado, Speaker Ryan should replace Chairman Nunes,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “If Speaker Ryan wants the House to have a credible investigation, he needs to replace Chairman Nunes.”
But Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who also serves on the House Intelligence Committee, had a few words for Sen. Schumer.
