Watch: GOP Congresswoman Gets Revenge During Impeachment Hearing After Schiff Bullied Her

by Paul Goldberg

Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y has been on fire since the public impeachment hearings have begun and she took it to a whole new level on Friday.

Earlier in the hearing Schiff constantly interrupted and shut down Stefanik for trying to question former US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

“This is the fifth time you have interrupted a duly-elected member of Congress,” Stefanik told Schiff, who repeatedly told her she was “not recognized” to speak.

It got so heated that Rep. Devin Nunes stepped in and gave the rest of his allotted time for questioning Yovanovich to Stefanik. Then as Stefanik tried to ask a question Schiff again slammed his gavel down and said, “The gentlewoman will suspend.”

“What is the interruption for now?” she shot back.

Nunes and Schiff then started arguing and every time Stefanik tried to speak Schiff would cut them off. 

But, Stefanik got the last laugh when she decided it was time to hold Schiff accountable for the posts he made on twitter about how he would have the whistleblower testify before the Intelligence Committee. However, as we’ve all watched Schiff will not allow the whistleblower Eric Ciaramella to testify because it’s “redundant” and “unnecessary.”

“The chairman refused to allow us to put these into the record with unanimous consent,” Stefanik, R-N.Y., said. “As we know, it is important to protect whistleblowers from retaliation and firing…but in this case, the fact that we are getting criticized for statements he, himself, made earlier in the process shows the duplicity and abuse of power we see.”
