GOP Lawmaker Gets Ripped After Complaining That She Couldn’t Break The Law During Impeachment Hearing

Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) tried to be slick during the public hearings in the House impeachment into Donald Trump by attempting to ask a line of questions to former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. But Committee Chairman Adam Schiff instantly shut her down and informed Devin Nunes (R-CA) that “under the house resolute 660, you are not allowed to yield time except to minority counsel.”

As Stefanik continued to try to speak, Schiff repeatedly cut her off. “The gentlewoman will suspend,” Schiff said as he swung the gavel. “You’re not recognized.”

“This is the fifth time you’ve interrupted members of Congress — duly elected members of Congress,” Stefanik protested.

Stefanik took to Twitter shortly after her attempt to break the rule of law to complain that she wasn’t allowed to break the law.

“Once again, Adam Schiff flat out REFUSES to let duly elected Members of Congress ask questions to the witness, simply because we are Republicans,” she tweeted along with a video clip of the exchange. “His behavior is unacceptable and he continues to abuse his Chairmanship.

Stefanik was quickly shut down on Twitter after trying to lie to the American people about how the rules work.
