It was troubling to me to read in the news that Rep. Chris Stewart asked for the resignation of House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff because of his opinion that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia.

The Department of Justice rules stipulate that a sitting president cannot be indicted for a criminal offense. Rather he, or she, must first be impeached before a criminal charge may be initiated.

Stewart seemingly has no concern about Trump's continuous false charges that Hillary is guilty of numerous misdeeds. These false accusations come despite about eight Republican panels, and one Republican televised panel, in which Clinton was determined completely innocent by each panel.

The final verdict in the Trump matter has yet to be determined.
