JTA Twitter 50: Adam Schiff


Adam Schiff@RepAdamSchiff

Adam Schiff may have been in the right place at the right time: He happened to be the senior Democrat on the U.S. House of Representatives Intelligence Committee when the alleged meddling of Russian spies in upending the United States’ democratic process became the political story of our time.

Schiff had come to the job with some serious attack animal chops: He’s a former federal prosecutor, and he isn’t above using humor to draw blood. His timing and way of turning words into arrows aimed at the heart of the matter have made him a go-to TV talking head — and a worthy Twitter foil to President Trump.

He’s also not afraid to speak directly to his Jewish constituents in California’s 28th district, or to come out strongly against Charlottesville-style white supremacists.
