Adam Schiff Writes Screenplays On The Side he shared in his New Yorker profile that not only is he a movie buff (and often quotes The Big Lebowski), but also he writes screenplays on the side. There seemed to be more than a tinge of regret in the California congressmans voice when he recalled the story of his first screenplay, a pre-Holocaust story called Remnant. I had an agent at William Morris tell me it was good but no one would want to see it too depressing, he explained. Then Schindlers List came out, and I was, like, Come on! He wrote the next one while a prosecutor, a murder-mystery called Minotaur, which he said was almost accepted by Hollywood standards. But, he has high hopes for his third. Its a spy drama, he said. That one is a work in progress.

It’s not just a hobby for him. Confabulating is his passion. Whether for political fame or Hollywood fame, I don’t think he cares.
And if you listen to him spin his prosecutorial time line and motive analysis—it’s like another fantasy.
So Schiff writes fiction?
Have to watch those rejected artists.... if they get power they can get tyrannical, even murderous.
Schiff is my congressman. If youve ever walked around leftist paradise Hollywood and Los Feliz, or spoken with any of the wetbrained, bed wetting busybodies that live here, youd understand how Schiff could be elected to anything beyond the twit youd most like to punch in the face
