Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is reportedly campaigning among Democrats to become House leader after pushing the debunked Russia hoax for years.

Based on the Washington Post‘s eight lawmakers and 18 staff interviews, Schiff “is gauging members’ interest and planting the seed” to gain enough support to potentially replace Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as leader after the midterms. According to the L.A. Times, Pelosi has been “grooming” Schiff as a possible successor. Schiff began selling the idea to California Democrats earlier this year, “though he has not made an explicit ask for endorsements.”

Some in the Democrat caucus are opposed to Schiff, not because he pushed the Russia hoax, but because he does not fit the intersectional qualities the Democrat party fancies, according to the Post. Intersection opposition to Schiff reportedly includes Reps. James Clyburn (D-SC) and Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), who have allied themselves closely with Pelosi’s reign as speaker. Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD) would also reportedly be interested in the top job. but he is not of intersection quality.
