House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes on Wednesday accused Democrats of hampering the investigation into Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

"We're beginning to figure out who's actually serious about the investigation because it appears like the Democrats aren't really serious about this investigation," he said, according to Politico.

The committee's ranking Democrat, Rep. Adam Schiff, said through a spokesman that Nunes was the one to cancel a hearing with officials from the previous administration.

"We always want to keep the committee bipartisan. But at the end of the day, we're going to do an investigation with or without them, and if they want to participate, that's fine, but the facts of the matter are pretty clear," Nunes said, according to Business Insider.

"The Minority submitted a list of witnesses to the Majority yesterday. This list represents only the first of many witnesses we believe should be called to testify," the spokesman told Politico.

"Additionally, the minority proposed days ago that two hearings be scheduled for next week — both the closed hearing with [James] Comey and [Mike] Rogers requested by the majority and the open hearing with [Sally] Yates, [James] Clapper and [John] Brennan that had been previously agreed to by both parties and canceled abruptly and unilaterally by the chair. We have yet to receive a response."

"I don't understand how Nunes can cancel hearings and say it's our fault," Rep. Eric Stalwell, D-Calif., said, Business Insider reports.

Illinois Democrat Mike Quigley said on MSNBC that Nunes "is showing that he can't serve two masters," and called on him to remove himself from the investigation.

"I ask him with the greatest respect — let someone else do this. No one is making you quit being the chairman of the committee, but it's apparent you can't serve both masters, and you should recuse yourself at this time."
