House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff was an answer on Wednesday night’s “Jeopardy,” and no one knew who he was.
In spite of the fact that Schiff has been at the helm of public impeachment proceedings for weeks — quickly stretching into months — none of the contestants on the popular game show were able to name him.

Host Alex Trebek showed Schiff’s photo and gave the clue — “1/53rd of California’s House delegation is this Intelligence Committee chairman” — and the time expired before any of the three contestants were able to come up with his name.

Embattled former Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti suffered a similar fate when he was an answer on the same game show last November — and none of the contestants were able to name him either.
