The Making of Schiff
After graduation Adam worked at the Los Angeles branch of the U.S. Attorney’s Office as a prosecutor. He came into limelight when he prosecuted Richard Miller, a former FBI agent who was convicted of passing secret documents to the Soviet Union in return for $65,000 in gold and cash
1 l . After two unsuccessful attempts Schiff got Miller convicted.

He married Eve Marion Sanderson Schiff (so yes they are Adam and Eve) who he met on a tennis court in Marina del Rey 1990. They were married on February 19, 1995 after her conversion to Judaism (she was raised Roman Catholic). They have two children Alexandra and Elijah. Despite that, this site says his marriage is a cover for his gay life style. In doing Schiff’s biograph, while he is very good at covering his past (see the other article below on Robin Schiff marrying Soros’s son) and family, somethings have got through and we were able to rectify his chart to a 29 Gemini Rising.
Congressman Schiff came to Congress with President Obama as a staunch supporter of the President.
Melissa Robin Schiff, the daughter of Marlene S. Schiff of New York and the late Dr. Haskel Schiff of Lake Grove, Long Island, married May 5, 1992 to Robert Daniel Soros, a son of Annaliese Soros and George Soros, both of New York. Rabbi Dr. David Posner performed the ceremony at Temple Emanu-El in New York.
Mrs. Soros, 28 years old, graduated from New York University. She is a freelance photographer and film maker in New York. Her father was a renal specialist at the Duke University Medical Center in Durham, N.C and mother is currently the chairwoman of the advisory board of the entrepreneurial center at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (where President Trump graduated and received a MBA).
Mr. Soros, also 28 and an N.Y.U. graduate, is an investor in New York. His stepmother, Susan W. Soros, is the director of the Bard College Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts. His father is the chairman of Soros Fund Management in New York. He is the founder of the Central European University in Prague, as well as a network of foundations in Eastern Europe.from the wedding section of the New York Times.
P.S. After 22 years of marriage, the Soros’s have since divorced.
While often cited that Melissa and Adam are brother & sister, that is impossible as this article and his mother’s obit state. They could be relations; nonetheless they are obviously kindred spirits. If you can supply further information , we will gladly vet it. Thanks.
If you appreciate the hard work that went into this essay, basically we have rewritten the original one because of new biographical information that has come to light and thus are better able o rectify his chart, please give us a like. Thanks.
