Democrats were shocked after hearing Adam Schiff’s plan to retire from the House
Adam Schiff has been in charge of the House Democrat witch hunts into Donald Trump for the past six years. Schiff may be on the move now.
Democrats were shocked after hearing Adam Schiff’s plan to retire from the House.
Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, has been thought to retire at the end of her term for a long time.
Feinstein’s health is clearly getting worse, and the news says that she has trouble thinking.
If Feinstein steps down, any ambitious Democrat who wants a Senate seat for life will run against her. It will be a free-for-all if she steps down.
Adam Schiff is one of the Democrats who many people think will run.
Elex Michaelson, the host of KTTA’s The Issue Is, asked Schiff if he planned to run for the Senate if Feinstein stepped down.
“It is widely expected that California Senator Dianne Feinstein, who is 89, will retire at the end of her term. You have expressed interest in that job. Is there any reason you would not run for Senate?” Michaelson asked.
Schiff tried to play coy in the beginning, pretending that he hasn’t thought about taking her place.
“Well, I’m not usually asked the question in that form. You know, look, I am getting a lot of encouragement to run for the Senate from people in California and colleagues here in Congress.
Schiff said he wants to run for the Senate and that Democrats told him to do so if Feinstein says she won’t run again in 2024.
If Senator Feinstein retires, then I will give it very serious consideration. You know, at this point, I think we’re waiting to see what Senator Feinstein has to say about her plans, but yes, it is something I’m giving serious consideration to,” Schiff responded.
Many people think that Schiff has been planning for years to run for a higher officer position.
Schiff led the fake Russian collusion story and the fake Ukraine impeachment in part to build his name and reputation with the base of the Democratic Party.
At the time, some people thought Schiff might try to take over as the leader of the Democrats in the House of Representatives from Nancy Pelosi.
But it is now clear that Schiff will leave the House of Representatives and run for the Senate in 2024.
