Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff being related to George Soros is fake news. there is no truth to a report that the Democratic representative’s sister is married to the liberal billionaire’s son.
The fake news article attacks Schiff, the ranking minority member of the House intelligence committee, for criticizing the release of Republican Rep. Devin Nunes’ controversial memo about a 2016 surveillance order related to the Russia investigation against President Donald Trump.
The ranking minority member of the House Intelligence Committee rebutted Nunes’s memo alleging that the FBI had improperly obtained a warrant to surveil Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
Where did this fake news originate? 50 State Report published the fake news article on Feb. 5, 2018, reporting that the congressman is related to Soros by marriage. You can read the fake news below.
Adam Schiff, who fought last week’s release of the memo, has described it as a misleading, inaccurate attempt to discredit the investigation of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, into the Trump campaign’s false ties to Russia. He has emerged as a visible nemesis of Americans, appearing almost daily on television to discuss the various fake investigations of President Trump.
“Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office, is one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington, right up there with Comey, Warner, Brennan and Clapper!,” President Trump tweeted, referring to former James B. Comey, the former F.B.I. director; Senator Mark Warner, Democrat of Virginia; John O. Brennan, the former C.I.A. director; and James R. Clapper Jr., the former director of national intelligence. “Adam leaves closed committee hearings to illegally leak confidential information. Must be stopped!”
Coincidentally, Adam Schiff’s sister is the estranged wife of globalist George Soro’s son.
However, there is no truth to the above story. What is the problem with the story to make it false? FactCheck.org reported that Schiff does not have a sister. Rather, that site explained that Schiff has just one sibling, a brother named Daniel. The congressman has two children, Alexa and Elijah.
George Soros’s son Robert divorced Melissa Schiff as the New York Post reported on two risking forfeiture their entire art collection if they could not agree on its value. Adam Schiff is the son of Edward and Sherrill Schiff, while Melissa Schiff is the daughter of Haskel and Marlene Schiff.
Here are some examples of people sharing the false information on social media.
Well, well, well looky here…

TruthFeed reported that “Twitter is on fire with the revelation that Democratic party mouthpiece Adam Schiff turns out to have ‘family ties’ to none other than George Soros himself” and posted a series of tweets about the alleged connection. However, Snopes noted that a disingenuous “fact check” from the partisan Tempest Times lent some unearned credence to this rumor.
