Adam Schiff positioning to succeed Nancy Pelosi in the event of Pelosi retiring

The good news is that House Speak Nancy Pelosi can’t stay in office forever. The bad news is that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is hoping to take her place.

Schiff is positioning himself to become Pelosi’s successor should the 82-year-old retire, Breitbart reported. The chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence is among those Pelosi has eyed for the position, but his trajectory is anything but a shoo-in.

Schiff has made several overtures to take over for Pelosi, including boasting of his fundraising capability and lobbying for himself among fellow Democrats. He also attended a New Democrats’ retreat sending a strong signal that he’s courting his colleagues’ support.

It’s no secret in Washington, D.C., that Schiff remains on the slate of candidates Pelosi seems to be grooming for the job. However, Schiff would have to overcome the stench of the Russia collusion hoax should the opportunity arise.

Schiff was instrumental in bringing to light allegations that former President Donald Trump was colluding with the Kremlin during the 2016 presidential election, Fox News reported. However, the Steele dossier that Schiff relied on for his intel turned out to be completely fabricated — and the California Democrat was either too incompetent or disinterested in the truth to notice.

Even if he proves successful in overcoming his issues, other factors would have to align for Schiff to approach the leadership role. The first hurdle would be Pelosi, and the House Speaker has insisted she is not stepping down from her role anytime soon.

Moreover, Democrats would have to keep their majority in the House of Representatives for the seat to be available at all. As the midterm elections loom, the writing is on the will with even CNN conceding that many factors, including President Joe Biden’s unpopularity, are making a GOP takeover in Congress a strong likelihood in 2022.

Having Schiff become the new Speaker of the House would be like going from the proverbial frying pan into the fire. The last thing America needs is the guy who couldn’t tell fact from fiction holding the third-highest office in the land — even if it means Pelosi wouldn’t anymore.
