House Minority Whip Steve Scalise joined the "Fox & Friends" hosts Friday morning to call out Democrats for continuing to push the Trump-Russia collusion "lie."

On Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) defended Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), an outspoken critic of President Trump who is facing calls to resign for continuing to push collusion claims despite Special Counsel Robert Mueller's findings.

"What is the president afraid of? Is he afraid of the truth, that he would go after ... a respected chairman of a committee in the Congress? I think they're just scaredy cats," Pelosi said at her weekly press conference Thursday.

Scalise (R-La.) said Democrats are ignoring the facts in their continued pursuit of the Russia "witch hunt."

He lamented that Democrats have become the party of "constant harassment of the president."

"For the last two years, Adam Schiff's been going around saying he's got more than circumstantial evidence of collusion. And they've been hanging their hat on the Mueller report. They were convinced there would be evidence of collusion and all these indictments. And there was none," Scalise said.

Despite that, Schiff and his fellow Democrats will never admit that they were wrong, Scalise said.

"They just move on and make some other baseless accusation. ... Whatever they're gonna say next, just consider the source."
