Progressives Attack Adam “Shifty” Schiff After Announcing CA Senate Run

Controversial California Congressman Adam Schiff is facing blowback from some in his own party over what leftists consider his miserable record concerning the investigation and failed impeachments of former President Donald J. Trump.

A progressive group quickly came out against Schiff after he announced his bid for California’s U.S. Senate seat on Thursday.

Schiff, who endlessly made false claims concerning “evidence” that he had discovered during the Russian Hoax investigations, and who has tried to position himself as a fighter against “MAGA extremists” was criticized in a statement put forth by Adam Green, the co-founder of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC).

“Adam Schiff plays the role of Trump antagonist on TV, but a recent book details how he stalled and undermined leaders trying to hold Trump accountable in Congress. And he never challenges corporations or the Democratic establishment.

Green took additional shots at Schiff on Twitter.

“When we should have gone big against Trump, Schiff said go small. When we should have gone fast, Schiff said to go slow. And when bold leaders finally won consensus to pursue impeachment over Schiff’s objections, Schiff leapt on stage to take credit,” Green said in the PCCC’s statement.

The PCCC pointed to a recent book, “Unchecked: The Untold Story Behind Congress’s Botched Impeachments of Donald Trump,” as evidence of Schiff’s complacency during the Trump administration. Porter, who announced her run earlier this month, has been endorsed by the PCCC.

Schiff is joining an increasingly competitive race for California’s Senate seat currently held by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 89, who is up for re-election in 2024.

Feinstein has not announced her re-election intentions but has reportedly been experiencing significant mental cognitive decline making it nearly impossible for her to handle the day-to-day work schedule of a US Senator.

Rep. Katie Porter, D-Calif was the first into the fray by launching her campaign launch on January 10th, hoping to get out ahead of other Democrats who are likely to vie for the seat should it open, including California Democratic Reps. Barbara Lee and Adam Schiff.

“California needs a warrior in the Senate — to stand up to special interests, fight the dangerous imbalance in our economy, and hold so-called leaders like Mitch McConnell accountable for rigging our democracy,” Porter (D-Calif.) said in a tweet announcing her candidacy.

“Our senator should work for Californians, not corporations,” Porter said in a statement following Schiff’s announcement. “I’m proud to be the only candidate who has never taken a dime of corporate PAC money.”

California Congresswoman Barbara Lee has said she intends to run for Feinstein’s seat as well but has not made an official announcement so far.

In Schiff’s first interview since the campaign announcement, the California congressman said Feinstein is “more than comfortable” with Schiff’s bid.

“I wouldn’t be doing that without that kind of blessing,” Schiff said in reference to Feinstein during an appearance on Fox 11 in Los Angeles.

Schiff’s campaign website, launched Thursday, says “Adam has always championed progressive values and led the fight to protect our democracy.”
