Congressman Adam Schiff believes that the Republican Party has "become essentially a cult" in recent years, evident from its embrace of President Trump and controversial figures such as Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who has espoused QAnon conspiracy theories.
"Which of course is a disaster not only for the Republican Party, but is a disaster for the country.
We really rely on two functional parties for our system to work, and right now we don't have that.".
The Republican Party, Schiff said, has become "entwined" with conspiracy theories spread by Mr. Trump.
He also slammed the decision by Republican leadership not to remove Greene from her committee assignments.
"It's a problem for the whole country that a political party is essentially hospitable to these dangerous and crazy conspiracy theories," Schiff said.
