Dems find an unlikely attack dog on Russia

Adam Schiff isn’t going quiet any time soon — no matter what his Republican colleagues on the House Intelligence Committee might want.

The California Democrat has been a pervasive presence on cable news networks during the panel’s investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election. He has claimed “clear evidence” of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and last week issued a Twitter screed calling President Trump “the worst president in modern history.”

Schiff’s rising profile hasn’t escaped the notice of Trump.

“Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into ‘Russia,’ spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!” Trump tweeted over the summer.

A soft-spoken and polite former prosecutor, Schiff is in many ways an unlikely attack dog on Russia. In hearings and press appearances, he often eschews sound bites for dense statements drawing connections between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

But Schiff is no stranger to high-level Russia investigations. As a prosecutor in 1990, he convicted the first FBI agent indicted for espionage, Richard Miller, who was found guilty of passing secret documents to the Soviet Union for thousands of dollars in gold and cash.

Allies have praised Schiff’s calm, lawyerly approach, even as Republicans on the committee groan at his frequent TV appearances.

15. Yes. I watched the way he rattled Nunes.

He's a keeper. He speaks softly but carries a big stick.

5. In the coming Hillary Clinton Administration

Adam Schiff Attorney General, Maxine Waters Special Counsel for Truth and Reconciliation.
Trump will be gone sooner rather than later and once the American people discover the depth and depraviity of tRumps crimes even some republicans will rise up and demand Hillary be named President.
I look for Ryan to arrange it once they see millions of us in the streets, he will have no other choice.
