Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff Wednesday reiterated his call for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes to recuse himself over the panel's investigation of Russia's involvement in the presidential election "if we are doing this credibly."

"I hope we can get back on track," Schiff, who represents California, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. "But the chairman has to find a way to lift this cloud, otherwise we need someone else to preside over this.

"We do need someone else to preside over this if we are doing this credibly."

Nunes, a California Republican, Tuesday canceled all hearings of the committee that were scheduled for this week amid, as he came increasingly under fire for his meeting last week on the White House grounds to obtain surveillance data that Trump associates' communications might have been swept up through incidental collection.

Democrats have also charged that Nunes took the step to prevent former acting Attorney General Sally Yates from testifying about contact between former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

"Here is the challenge we face," Schiff told Blitzer. "We have a chairman who got information on the White House grounds that he won't share — not just with Democrats, but with his own committee.

"I just don't know how to conduct a credible investigation if you have, let alone one person, but the chairman of the committee who is saying, 'I have seen evidence but I won't share with anyone else.'

"What are we to make of that?" Schiff asked.

"It isn't enough for us to go through the motions of the investigation, we need to do one credibly," he said. "I don't know how to do it credibly under the circumstances."
