WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff is calling for unity in the Democratic Party in the face of still-simmering divisions between establishment Democrats and progressive activists looking to push the party to the left.
Schiff was the featured speaker Saturday at the California Democratic Party convention. He says Democrats must repair their party’s wounds in order to save the country from what he says are Russian attempts to undermine it.
Schiff was a little-known congressman from Burbank before his position as the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee vaulted him to national prominence. He became the face of Democratic demands to get to the bottom of Russian influence in the 2016 election.
