While much of the political news out of Washington, D.C., these days is focused on the upcoming midterm elections and speculation about the 2024 presidential election (along with the never-ending disaster of the Biden presidency, of course), there’s another campaign going on, which is undoubtedly filled with more behind-the-scenes intrigue than anything else on Capitol Hill — the replacement of Nancy Pelosi.
A shadow campaign to lead House Democrats next year has been underway for months, as reported by The Washington Post in January, as speculation continues to grow over whether 82-year-old — and like Biden, mentally unfit –Pelosi will finally honor her word and step down as House Speaker.
While talks continue within the bowels the Democrat Party (pun intended) about a leader of “next generation” who could energize the Democrat Party — New York Rep. Hakeem Jeffreys, for instance — California serial liar Adam “Russia!” Russia! Russia!” Schiff’s eleventh-hour push in recent weeks has taken Democrats by surprise, as reported by The Washington Post, raising questions about whether the Democrat caucus wants to mirror the diversity of its party’s base. This is why Jeffries was so popular. )
Man! How awesome would be ? Adam Schiff, serial liar and Nancy Pelosi are now the supreme power of the Democrat Party.
How can we accurately describe Adam Schiff’s stage-4 Trump Derangement Syndrome? It is still a stunning sight. Only in this sense does Hall of Fame Steelers quarterback Terry Bradshaw come to mind.
Years ago, Jay Leno jokedly asked Bradshaw, “Terry. Why can’t we stay married?” Bradshaw responded, with a twinkle in the eye. “Jay, I can’t not [sic] Lie!” Adam Schiff said that he couldn’t not lie all about Donald Trump. Rusia! Russia!” — from the baseless 2016 election Russia “collusion” hoax to tip the election to Trump, to the “Russian plot” behind the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
Yet, it is incredulous that Schiff does not appear to feel embarrassed or remorseful about anything.
History, via WaPo:
Schiff, who gained attention investigating Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election before leading the first impeachment of President Donald Trump, is exploring a bid to lead the House Democratic caucus if Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) retires after the midterm elections, according to more than a dozen House members and top aides who have spoken directly with the congressman.
This account of Schiff’s recent efforts is based on interviews with eight lawmakers and 18 staff members and lobbyists familiar with leadership dynamics, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private conversations.
If Schiff can garner enough interest, he would challenge a number of Democrats who are vying for the top slot, including perhaps Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D.Md.). Rep. James E. Clyburn, D-S.C. and Rep. Hakeem Jeffreyries, D-N.Y. who have positioned themselves among the members as Pelosi’s heir apparent.
According to those in the group,
Schiff began making overtures earlier this year. They were aimed at consolidating support within his California home, where he has been active since. Although he hasn’t asked for endorsements explicitly, Schiff is trying to gauge interest from members and plant the seeds that he hopes to lead the caucus.
Leaving aside Schiff’s extravagant ego and the awe inspiring image of himself ,, is this man crazy or drunk with self-aggrandizement His (litigating) obsession with Russia and Trump is not the only thing he has. Schiff claimed in June that there was “a lot” of evidence about Trump’s involvement in the Capitol riot before the first Democrat Jan.6 Committee farce.
One question: What’s the beef?
Where’s all that new, damning evidence? It doesn’t exist, as with everything Adam Schiff. Schiff for Brains(tm), even if it did exist, would have been all over the place like a duck with a June bug months back.
