BURBANK — As the administration tried to dance on his political grave, Congressman Adam Schiff sounded anything but defeated Thursday, claiming the newly released special-counsel report confirmed — rather than refuted — his charges that the Donald Trump campaign colluded with Russia. At a midday news conference at Burbank City Hall, Schiff said the report on Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential campaign by Robert Mueller and his team of investigators revealed “damning” information even...

Republicans talk tough about Adam Schiff, but will they run against him?

Republicans are gung-ho to see Adam Schiff bounced out of office after he alleged collusion between President Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia, a charge the congressman’s critics say was refuted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s still widely un-read investigation. But are they gung-ho enough to actually run a credible candidate against him in 2020? No Republicans have filed papers yet to challenge Schiff, D-Burbank, in the March 3, 2020 primary in California’s 28th District, even though GOP ca...
