Schiff Refuses to Let Republicans Question Witness During Impeachment Hearing

On Friday during the second round of impeachment hearings, House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff refused to let Republican Rep. Elise Stefanik question former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

“The gentlewoman will suspend,” Schiff said to Rep. Devin Nunes as he attempted to give Stefanik time to speak.


“What is the interruption for this time? It is our time,” Stefanik shot back.

Schiff tried saying that the House only allowed Nunes or Counsel Steve Castor to question the witness.

“We control the time, its been customary of this committee that whoever controls the time can yield to whoever they wish. If we have members of Congress that have a few questions, it seems appropriate that we be able to let Ms. Stefanik ask her question,” Nunes fired back.

The Daily Caller reports: "Nunes eventually relented and recognized Castor. Stefanik and Schiff have clashed in each of the first two public impeachment hearings. Stefanik has criticized Schiff for preventing witnesses from answering questions from committee Republicans in both open and closed-door hearings."

This behavior by Schiff is nothing new. On Wednesday during the impeachment hearing, Schiff cut off Republican Rep. Steve Castor to tell witnesses that they do not have to answer questions from GOP representatives.

"You certainly can appreciate that President Trump was very concerned that some elements of the Ukrainian establishment were not in favor of him, did not support him and were out to get him," Castor said to witness Bill Taylor.

Before Taylor could answer, Schiff jumped in to change the rules of the impeachment hearing.

"I just want to be clear ambassador if you are able to verify the things that the council has asked you in the prerequisite of the question that is fine, otherwise in questions from the majority or the minority that may assume facts not evidence before you, you should be cautioned about that," Schiff bizarrely said.

Another notable moment during the first impeachment hearing came when Schiff lied to the American public when he claimed that he did not know the identity of the anti-Trump whistleblower who started the entire impeachment inquiry.

This claim is blatantly false considering Schiff and his staff met with the whistleblower multiple times before the whistleblower complaint was even made.

Towards the beginning of the hearing, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan questioned Schiff, asking him when the committee would be able to vote to have the whistleblower testify considering they were the one who sparked the entire sham.

Jordan rightfully claimed that Schiff was the only member of congress who knew the identity of the whistleblower.

“I do not know the identity of the whistleblower, and I’m going to make sure that identity is protected,” Schiff lied.
