One of the safest seats in the House of Representatives belongs to Adam Schiff (D-CA). I had to live in a hotel in CA-28 for two months while my son was in the hospital, and I can tell you from experience that the people there in East Hollywood are… different. It’s no wonder he got 78% of the vote in the midterm election. I often passed his office, pointed to by a graffiti-covered sign on a dark alley where one is more likely to get mugged than to speak to the DC-anchored politician.
Conventional wisdom says he can’t be beaten. But things are different. For the first time in his two-decade career in the House, there’s actually hope that he could be ousted. Competitor Jon Hollis hopes this is the case as Schiff is putting his reputation and career on the line by being front-and-center pushing for impeachment against President Trump.
The 29-year-old Republican made a bold accusation against the longtime Democratic lawmaker.
“Adam Schiff is guilty of conspiring with Ukrainian officials to acquire opposition research on the President, and now he’s leading the charge to impeach the President for the very thing he himself is guilty of,” Hollis said in an email. “The Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is nothing more than a hypocritical attempt to score cheap political points at the expense of American Democracy.”
The President wasn’t quite as bold in his statement on Schiff, but he made his point the best way he knows how on Twitter:
Liddle’ Adam Schiff, who has worked unsuccessfully for 3 years to hurt the Republican Party and President, has just said that the Whistleblower, even though he or she only had second hand information, “is credible.” How can that be with zero info and a known bias. Democrat Scam!

Former Congressman Trey Gowdy and many in conservative media took offense as Schiff used “parody” language to describe what was in the Trump-Zelensky transcript. He outright lied to the American people and pretended his words were satirical, but as he an Democrats know, most of the people following them rush to judgment based on talking points without ever actually reading the transcript.

Former congressman Trey Gowdy ripped Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., for his “parody” of the phone call between President Trump and the Ukraine president, saying the Democratic leader was “making up” evidence.
“Adam Schiff has one of the worst senses of humor of anyone I’ve ever met,” Gowdy said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum. “So, he doesn’t need to try parody.”
On Thursday the House Intelligence Committee chairman gave his dramatic version of the phone call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Democrats have put themselves in a bad situation for 2020. Even “safe” seats are vulnerable. We’re hopeful that Jon Hollis can take advantage of the Democrats’ impeachment misstep and turn Adam Schiff’s district red again.
