Schiff, Adam B.

Congressman Loses Bet, Sings 'Meet the Mets'
 

Rep. Adam B. Schiff, D-Calif., broke into song on the House floor Friday, but not by choice.

The California Democrat lost a bet with fellow Democratic Rep. Steve Israel of New York, when the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the New York Mets last week in the National League playoffs.

Gowdy, Cummings Explode Over Benghazi Transcript
 

Shortly before the House Select Committee on Benghazi recessed for lunch Thursday, ranking member Elijah E. Cummings, D-Md., challenged Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., to release the full transcript of Sidney Blumenthal, a longtime confidant to Hillary Rodham Clinton, following a series of questions by Gowdy on the topic.

The back-and-forth, which at times veered in to a shouting match between two top committee members, ended abruptly when Gowdy recessed the committee, telling Cummings to “wait until the next round [of questioning]” for more on Blumenthal.
