Escort or arrest?

An interesting report out of LAX

I’m currently at Los Angeles international Airport (LAX) and Congressman Adam Schiff was just being escorted back out of a terminal with about 15 LAPD/Airport police!?

If true, that sounds a little heavy for a congressional security team. And I am reliably informed that they do have holding cells in airports….

UPDATE: I don’t know how legitimate this link is, but the name and age appear to be correct:


From Wikipedia: 

Adam Bennett Schiff (born June 22, 1960) is an American lawyer and politician who has served as the U.S. Representative for California’s 28th congressional district since 2013. A member of the Democratic Party, Schiff is currently in his 10th term as a congressman, having served since 2001.

UPDATE: If true, could be significant.

Adam Schiff was taken from LAX international airport to the Los Angeles FBI building and has not exited since going in a little after 10:00 a.m. this morning, my FBI source is telling me! 

UPDATE: I’d say it is looking increasingly dubious at this point.
