REPORT: Adam Schiff Quietly Lobbying To Be Appointed Attorney General Of California

California Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff is reportedly trying to position himself to take on the role of the state attorney general.

It’s amazing that anyone even takes this man seriously, after he spent years claiming to have proof of Russia collusion that he never produced.

Would Californians really trust him to be the state’s top law enforcement official?

Why it matters: If Newsom selects Schiff, chair of the House Intelligence Committee and a confidant of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, House Democrats would lose a powerful party voice in the U.S. House and temporarily give up a seat in their slim 221-211 majority.

– Nonetheless, Pelosi has given her approval to Schiff’s bid, a clear sign she thinks she can manage without him. according to people familiar with the matter. Spokespersons for Schiff and Pelosi declined comment.

– The attorney general’s job also would better position Schiff, a high-profile Democrat who led the Russia investigation into then-President Trump, to run for Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat, should the 87-year-old decide not to run for reelection in 2024.

– The AG’s job is being vacated by Xavier Becerra, who President Biden has nominated to serve as secretary of Health and Human Services.

This is an excellent reminder:

Let’s also not forget that Schiff was constantly suspected of ‘anonymously’ leaking information to the press.

How is he even still in office?
