House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., supports the movement, Politico added.
The chair will shortly open up whether its present occupant and President Biden's nominee for secretary of Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, continues to be verified. It was held by Vice President Kamala Harris, prior to her election to the U.S. Senate.
The move would mark a significant change for Schiff, now the powerful chairman of the House Intelligence Committee who watched his national profile increase throughout the Russia evaluation and the first impeachment of former President Trump. However, in addition, it would allow him longer in his home nation before 87-year-old Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein's potential retirement at the conclusion of her term at 2025.
Schiff's district is DemocraticParty, and the celebration could hold a majority in the House of Representatives before his replacement is picked -- albeit a narrow one.
Schiff has represented California's 28th District for nearly 20 decades. As a former federal prosecutor who graduated from Harvard Law School, he has expertise that would apparently qualify him to direct the state attorney general's office -- even though critics have accused him of partisanship. However, Pelosi was advocating on his behalf, Politico reported.
His office couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
It is unclear who'd fill Schiff's seat on the Intel Committee. Fellow California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell, another ally of Pelosi's, stays on the committee -- despite his rotten ties to an alleged Chinese spy called Fang Fang.
For his role, Newsom is confronting low stage in his approval ratings -- a remember effort looking for his removal from office that has been gaining steam, and a worsening coronavirus outbreak.
