The first trial in the case had resulted in a hung jury but the second trial had resulted in the conviction which was later overturned. In the third trial, Schiff’s prosecution had made Miller to get convicted.
Schiff, in the year of 1994, was seen as a promising candidate for the 43rd district seat in the California State Assembly for a special election. But in the final results, he lost to the Republican nominee James Edward Rogan. Following this loss, he was elected again and this time he was going to represent the 21st district in the California State Senate. His term began when he was only 36 years old and this made him the youngest member of the Senate. He had a 4 year tenure and during this time he chaired various committees such as the State Senate’s Judiciary Committee, Committee on Juvenile Justice and State Legislature’s Joint Committee on Arts.

Adam Schiff & Trump Investigations
In 2017, Schiff said in an interview that there was “more than circumstantial evidence now” suggesting that the possibility of Trump’s presidential campaign colluding with Russia was very high. In another interview of the CNN, which is called ‘State of the Union’, Schiff said that the House Select Intelligence Committee was going to conduct the investigation in full. This committee was then tasked with the responsibility of conducting inquiries to find out if there was Russian interference in the 2016 elections in the US.
When he chaired the House Intelligence Committee in 2019, Schiff had sped up the Trump investigations which were separate from the Special Counsel Investigation tasked with checking Trump’s connections with Russia. As a result, there were nine members of the Republican Party from the House Intelligence Committee who called for Adam Schiff to resign. This was based on his allegations which were targeted at Trump suggesting that his campaign colluded in the 2016 elections with the Russians.

On 21st June 2023, Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted in majority to censure Representative Adam Schiff. There is a list of accusations which formed the basis of Schiff being censured in the resolution, D-Calif., which are:
- Falsely accusing former US President Donald Trump of collusion with Russia during the presidential campaigns in the 2016 US elections.
- Abusing his position while he was the chair of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of the House.
- Perpetuating allegations which falsely suggested that Trump associates colluded with Russia during the 2016 elections.
- Abusing access to various classified information and documents.
- Reading a false retelling of a phone mail between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
- Causing hindrance in the Intelligence Committee’s ability towards its duties.
The impact which is expected to be seen is going to be mainly affecting Adam Schiff’ reputation and his relationship within the Senate. Censuring a political representative does not mean that the member is going to be removed from the House. It requires the member to stand in the ‘well’ of the House while the House speaker goes on to read the House Resolution. There could be punishments where the member gets removed from the positions and has an investigation against him. For Schiff, the censure includes an investigation by the House Ethics Committee for his actions.
