Burbank Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff has been front and center as one of the faces of his party’s resistance to the Trump administration, most notably in his frequent interviews on cable TV news talking about the House Select Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

A vocal critic of the president, Schiff has seen his profile rise meteorically since becoming the committee’s ranking member, and his often surfaces on shortlists of people thought to be running for president in 2020. Schiff’s recent trips across the country to campaign for local candidates, including one trip to first-in-the-nation primary state New Hampshire, have some looking at what, exactly, Schiff’s future political ambitions are. The Congressman has been noncommittal when the subject has been broached, neither suggesting he might run nor ruling out the possibility.
