House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's leadership has been compromised through his statements and actions about President Donald Trump's administration and he should step aside, fellow committee member Rep. Mike Turner said Tuesday.

"He wasn't being straight with the American public or with you when we would have hearings in the Intel Committee on the Trump campaign and coordination, we would hear witness after witness come in and say I have no evidence of collusion, I don't know anyone else who has evidence of collusion, and he would walk out to the cameras and say, we're getting close," the Ohio Republican told CNN's "New Day."

Further, Turner said Schiff, D-Calif., blamed Republicans for constraining him in finding collusion when Republicans were not blocking any of his efforts, and he added that Schiff's statements after days of closed-door testimony are proof he's lying.

"It is not illegal for a member of Congress to sit in a classified briefing and come out and misrepresent what happened in the room," said Turner. "It is illegal to say what did happen. We would leave the hearings and the Republicans would file by, Adam Schiff would run in front of the cameras and say outrageous and inflammatory things that did not represent what happened in the room."

Meanwhile, the Intelligence Committee is to work on issues concerning national security and to ensure the intelligence community has the tools it needs, not to do the investigations Schiff pushes, he said.

"There is no more work for the intelligence community to do with respect to any aspect of Trump and collusion," said Turner.
