As he gloats and smirks about former and potentially future President Donald Trump being arraigned in Miami earlier on Tuesday for his handling of classified documents, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) may soon be facing some very real concerns of his own. Last month, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) submitted a resolution that would expel her Democratic colleague from the House of Representatives, and soon after introduced a measure to censure and fine Schiff for pushing the “Russia collusion” narrative.

The two members are now back in the news, as Luna called a measure to censure Schiff to the floor as a privileged resolution on Tuesday. The pinned tweet to the congresswoman’s campaign account is a video of her reading out the resolution which lists out the abuses Schiff would be censured and fined for.

House Republican leadership is eager to vote on the matter, with House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA) having tweeted his support.

Such a vote is expected to come Wednesday or Thursday.

Democrats are looking to make moves to avoid the censure. While they could do so with a procedural motion to table the measure, that requires a majority vote, and Republicans control the chamber. House Minority Whip Katherine Clark (D-MA)’s office said a procedure vote on the resolution will be held on Wednesday.

Schiff also sent out a letter to his Democratic colleagues on Tuesday, shared with CNN in which he tried to come off as eloquent as he begged for their support.

In it, he lamented that even just the “consideration” of the resolution “on the House floor will ultimately come at a cost to the country, our democracy, and to the integrity of the House of Representatives.” He went on to claim it “is not only a terrible misuse of House precedent and resources, but a clear attack on our constitutional system of checks and balances.”
