Rep. Adam Schiff has led the charge for the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the House, alongside Speaker Nancy Pelosi, for the last month.
And it might all be catching up to him.
On Friday, just a day after the House’s final impeachment vote, Schiff was confronted by America’s Voice correspondent Ben Bergquam, who ended up reading the California representatives his Miranda rights, which is normally given by police to criminal suspects in police custody.
“When this all fails … what will Democrats do next?” Bergquam asked, referring to the impeachment proceedings.
Schiff replied, “Uh, sir, I don’t have time for an interview today, but thank you anyways.”
Berquam, walking beside Schiff, quickly responded, “When you’re brought up for treason, what will your response be then?”

Berquam then read out Schiff’s Miranda Rights as he was checking out at the cash register, completing somewhat of a citizens arrest without the physical aspect of actually arresting someone.
The Miranda Rights go as follows: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.”
Currently Pelosi is holding onto the articles of impeachment, waiting for Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to give Senate Democrats a fair shake in an impeachment trial.
