( – Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) told CNN’s “State of the Union with Jake Tapper” on Sunday that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) calling for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to resign is “like the National Enquirer calling The New York Times fake news.”

Tapper asked Moulton whether the Democrats should keep talking about collusion or whether it’s time to move on now that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report did not establish conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, according to Attorney General William Barr’s memo.


“Well, we should keep talking about it, as far as it's our constitutional duty. The Republicans have just asked for Adam Schiff to resign. We don't live in a country where, when you're standing up for the Constitution and you're doing your job, you just get asked to resign because people disagree with you, and I don't think it's lost on people the irony of Devin Nunes calling Adam Schiff to resign. I mean, that's like the National Enquirer calling The New York Times fake news,” Moulton said.



“I mean, we can do better than this, and if there's one conclusion of the Mueller report that's very clear, it's that Russia interfered in our election. So, what Democrats and Republicans should be talking about is how to prevent that from happening in the future and, instead -- this is why I talk about national security,” he said.

Moulton added that national security “is not just about preventing Russia from invading us with tanks into Western Europe, which is what a lot of people seem to be focused on.”

“Russia is trying to hack our elections, and Robert Mueller was clear about that. China is attacking us through the Internet every single day, and stealing our business ideas and our military -- that's where a lot of American jobs are going,” he added.

On the issue of national security, Moulton said instead of building “this 5th century ridiculous border wall,” Congress should be talking about “a cyber wall that will stop Russia and China from interfering in our business.”
