Democrat Adam Schiff, probing Trump-Putin ties, has gone up against Russia (and Stephen Colbert) before
WASHINGTON ? Congressman Adam Schiff, increasingly the Democratic point man on the investigation into allegations of overly cozy ties between President Trump and Russia, is a soft-spoken former federal prosecutor and a critic of government surveillance who may be the only lawmaker ever to draw blood from comic Stephen Colbert ? literally.
