Radical Democrats are "running scared of the facts" and still trying to "chase down witch hunts" even after special counsel Robert Mueller's report has been concluded, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise said Friday.
"If that's what they want to be the party of constant harassment of the president, of his family. Of allowing babies who are born to be killed when they are outside of the womb, that's what they have become," the Louisiana Republican told Fox News' "Fox and Friends," while responding to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's comments that party members are acting like "scaredy cats" over Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.
Scalise also said that Republicans on Schiff's committee who called for his resignation Thursday used "powerful words" and that Schiff and other Democrats "still won't get over" the fact that there will be no new indictments and there was no proof of collusion between Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign.
"There was no collusion," Scalise said. 'Get over that fact. Nobody should have wanted it to happen anyway. But it didn't happen, and yet for two years they have been peddling this lie."
Meanwhile, Scalise will introduce the "Born Alive" act next week, which he said will give full legal protections to newborn babies.
"When I talk to people all around the country, the first thing they say is why do you need to do that it already exists, right? It doesn't. Look at New York," said Scalise. " This is murder. We need to protect innocent life. When the baby is born alive outside the womb, it should be fully protected."
