Adam Schiff is running for the U.S. Senate.
But right off the bat Schiff learned devastating news.
That’s because Adam Schiff faces an investigation over this incriminating image.
Adam Schiff announced his campaign for Senate by releasing a video on his social media accounts.
Our democracy is at great risk. Because GOP leaders care more about power than anything else.
And because our economy isn’t working for millions of hard working Americans.

Schiff spent years ginning up hoaxes against Donald Trump over Russian collusion and Ukraine to build his national profile with Democrats ahead of an eventual run for higher office.
That grandstanding could prove to be Schiff’s undoing.
Schiff’s announcement video included an image of Schiff standing on the House floor making the case for the Senate to convict Donald Trump in the Ukraine impeachment hoax.
That’s a big no-no.
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust dispatched a letter to the House Ethics Committee filing a complaint and demanding an investigation.
That’s because Schiff broke House ethics rules by using official member resources for personal use.
The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust’s letter read:
Federal law states that “appropriations shall be applied only to the objects for which the appropriations were made except as otherwise provided by law.” To enforce this law, the ethics rules prohibit Members from using any official resource for campaign or political purposes. “Official resources” includes anything funded by taxpayers, such as a Member’s official website, social media accounts, and photographs and video from the House or Senate floor. To make it abundantly clear, both the House ethics rules and Senate rules specifically identify Congressional video of floor proceedings as official resources that Members are prohibited from using for political purposes.
Simply put, under the House ethics rules, a Member is prohibited from using either House or Senate photographs or video because both are official government resources. This includes any photograph or video footage of floor proceedings even if it was reposted from a third-party source, i.e. another website or news organization. As the Ethics Committee has stated, “Members may not re-use an image of a floor proceeding published by a third-party, if the Member could not use that image in the first instance.”
Adam Schiff thought impeaching Donald Trump was his ticket to the U.S. Senate.
That’s why Schiff fought to play such a starring role in all of Nancy Pelosi’s show trials.
Instead, Schiff’s thirst to use the witch hunts against Trump to advance his own career came back to bite Schiff in a very big way.
