GOP Rallies After Schiff Appears to ‘Gag’ Congresswoman

GOP members of the House Intel Committee after it appeared that Chairman Adam Schiff was “gagging” New York Representative Elise Stefanik.

 

According to Fox News:

Tensions between lawmakers boiled over Friday on the second day of the public impeachment hearings, when House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., repeatedly shut down GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., citing House procedure — as an astonished Ranking Member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., accused him of “gagging” the lawmaker.

“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.

The moment began when Nunes, as he questioned Yovanovitch, gave the remainder of his allotted time to Stefanik, who had sparred multiple times with Schiff on both Friday and during Wednesday’s first nationally televised hearing.

“You’re gagging the member from New York?” Nunes laughed at one point.

Stefanik was eventually allowed to question Yovanovitch and it remains unclear why Schiff continued to interrupt her.

    1. Schiff is a disgrace to the Democrats. He is drunk with power and has no idea how to perform his job. In short, he is a horses ass and should be fired.

  1. The Democrats are getting panicky as the GOP hones in on their corruption. Schiff has to protect the shill that he produced. They are being exposed every day and until the American people get tired of it and stop them it will continue…

    1. That is as lame a statement as one can possibly make when it is decided by a mini Hitler that one can not speak because he does not recognize her. What type of kangaroo hearing is it when others of opposite views are not allowed to speak. By what reason is this acceptable? Even if Shiffhead is correct in not recognizing her by rules, He is completely wrong in doing so? Would you be happy if it were you? It matters not if you are a lib-tard or an anal-retentive Republican, if you are a duly elected representative, you should be allowed to speak. Being that this is of massive magnitude, we should be able to hear one and all.

      1. EXACTLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY……………………….OUR RIGHTS ARE TAKEN AWAY…………..BY THE LIKES OF THAT RAT TRYING TO BE AS OBNOXIOUS AS A PIG WHEN SHE SPEWS HER CRAP!!!!! WE…………………THE…………..PEOPLE HAVE HAD IT………………… IT HAS TO BE STOPPED!!!!!…………… THEY ARE Wasting OUR MONEY……………… WE WORKED OUR BUTTS OFF…….AND DIDNT GET A DIME OF ALL THE MONEY ALL THESE WACK JOBS STOLE FROM US……………..

LETS SEE WHERE THEY HAVE GOTTEN SO DAM RICH……………….ALL AMERICANS DEMAND WE GET TO SEE AS MUCH OF THEIR TAXES…………………AS THEY DEMANDED TO SEE OF OUR PRESIDENTS…………………….IMHO……………… NONE ARE ANY OF THEIR BUSINESS!!!!!! I HAVE NO DOUBT THEIR TAXES WOULD SCARE US ALL TO DEATH………….SO MUCH WORSE THEN OUR PRESIDENTS!!!!!

  2. “Robert’s Rules of Order”. Until the congressperson is recognized by the Chair, they CANNOT speak or question. Schiff was perfectly under the correct procedures. Stop whining and changing the subject.

    1. Omg when are you Dems going to grow up and quit hiding your nothingness. Put on a circus show waste more taxpayers money and keep on with your scam. What are you afraid of people actually knowing the truth!! News flash everyone can see the truth it’s a childish rigged process that we’re all the American people are sick of. No one is whining you childish fool. Quit wasting everyone’s time and our money playing your games or get the hell out of Congress.

    2. That is as lame a statement as one can possibly make when it is decided by a mini Hitler that one can not speak because he does not recognize her. What type of kangaroo hearing is it when others of opposite views are not allowed to speak. By what reason is this acceptable?

Being that this is of massive magnitude, we should be able to hear one and all.

    3. That “Rule of Order” works for All, until Schiff refuses to recognize anyone that attempts to expose this FAKE whistle blower for what he is! This scam is becoming the worse miscarriage of justice in American History! People are starting to see this for what it is, Another attempt to stop the Trump from being elected to another 4 years in office! It’s NOT working.

    4. Madman Schiff is never “perfectly” anything! He looks like Charles Manson with those crazy eyes! How can loony liberals believe anything he says or does? Good grief.

    5. STOP WHINING???????????????????? REALLYYYYYYYYYYYYYY THAT IS WHAT YOU TAKE FROM THE CORRUPTION WE ARE SEEING ………………….OMG EDUCATE YOURSELF FOR GODS SAKE!!!!!!! WE……………… THE…………. PEOPLE …… THE WORKING HARD……. FULL TIME …… PEOPLE…… THAT PAY TAXES………………….HAVE EVERY GOD BLESSED RIGHT TO STOP THIS CRAP!!!!……………… ALL THEY ARE DOING IS MAKING ASSES OF THEMSELVES……………….

SO BARE THAT IN MIND FROM NOW ON!!!!!!!……………… VISION THE CAMERAS THAT ARE WATCHING YOU…………. KNOW YOU ALL ARE BEING FOLLOWERED ….. IM SURE THAT WOULD HELP YOU DO THE “RIGHT THING” AND THEN YOU TOO CAN STOP WHINING!!!!!

  3. An impeachment is supposed to be a bipartisan effort, NOT this one-sided witch hunt, a trial in search of a crime, any crime, as long as it gets rid of a political opponent, that they know they can’t beat next year. This is strictly political and they hate Pres. Trump with a passion, and obviously, so do you! The Dems must first find some “crime” that he committed, not just make something up. Until and unless that happens and they have PROOF, he is innocent. He doesn’t have to prove his innocence, they have to prove his guilt, beyond a reasonable doubt. That is the way we do that in the United States. Bill Clinton DID commit the crime of lying under oath and the Republicans had the majority, but still couldn’t convict and remove him. No matter what the House does, he will not be convicted in the Senate, especially since it takes 67 votes and the Republicans have 53 Senators to the Dems 47 votes (45 D’s and 2 Independents who usually caucus with the Dems) and not all Dems will vote to convict, either, if they are from swing states that Trump won. Even if all of them voted to convict, there would have to be at least 20 Republicans voting with the Dems to convict and remove him. NOT happening! So, STFU!

    1. THIS WHOLE EFFORT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A DESPERATE ATTACK IN A LAST DITCH EFFORT TO SMEAR THIS GREAT PRESIDENT TO WIN THE ELECTION, AND GET EVEN FOR POOR LITTLE HITLERY’S LOSS.
      THE AMERICAN COMMUNIST PARTY KNOWS NO DEPTH IT WILL NOT STOOP TO.

      YOU SEE WHERE WE ARE ALL AT EVERYONE. BE VIGILANT AND STAND READY !

      1. Gbar, Lets all get started now and get our family and friends and their friends to push
        for all to vote republican and get these brain dead people out of office.

  4. Vladilyich, you need to review your “Robert’s Rule of Order”. The representative speaking “had the floor” and yielded “his time” to a fellow representative which is perfectly legitimate. Schiff was out of order for interrupting the representatives time. What this hearing needs is a parliamentarian present to make sure Schiff runs this hearing properly instead of making up his own rules. In case you’re not aware of what a parliamentarian is: Parliamentarian:a person who is expert in the formal rules and procedures of deliberative assemblies and other formal organizations. They are usually situated near whoever is chairing the meeting and is there to correct and instruct such chairperson in order to run the meeting correctly, which Schiff desperately needs due to the fact he continually errs and makes his own rules as these hearing continue

    1. Madman Schiff is making up the rules as he goes along. He is, after all, the big kahuna. Just ask him and he’ll tell you. Good grief.

  5. Second, this is not a legitimate impeachment procedure due to the fact it was never formally introduced and/or voted on it’s nothing but a joke. What the democrats are doing is nothing but a waste of time, a dog & pony show and totally illegal. The democrats are violating all rules and their basis is the testimony of a whistle blower who has no “first hand” knowledge and therefore is nothing but “hearsay” which would not be acceptable or hold up in normal courtroom procedures. Furthermore, the democrats won’t permit the whistleblower to testify citing worries about his safety and protection. This does not exist, the only protection a whistleblower is entitled to is his job protection which means has he can’t be fired or be discriminated against and gets to keep his job. There is nothing that protects his identity and his information is supposed to be first hand information, not second hand or more commonly called “hearsay”.

  6. If Elise Stefanik was a Democrat woman being treated the way Adam Schit is treating her, the entire wing of the Dems would have have a total meltdown and the lying fake MSM would be in overdrive reporting it!
    AND, the rest of this unconstitutional conspiracy attempted coup is not fair either!
    The Monmouth poll is reporting 73% of the American people want Schit to shut this disgusting embarrassing THING down, get to work and do the jobs they were elected to do in the House!u The Dems can be fired in 2020! They act like they have forgotten they don’t have lifetime jobs!

  7. The past 3 years have made a major change in my thinking. For most of my life I have judiciously studied all candidates before voting. Now I wouldn’t vote for a Democrat if they were the only ones running. It is obvious that they only care about power and money and to hell with those of us who gave them a job.

    1. thank you william curtis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am soooooo glad to see ………………some people …truly are seeing the truth!!!! and what is going on………………….im a very busy nurse…working fulltime plus 20 hrs………….. and even i can catch up on what is the truth……………….. educate yourself AMERICA………………. STAND UP AND STATE YOUR MINDS……………. WE STILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO STOP THIS CRAP IF ENOUGH PEOPLE DEMAND IT!!!!………………..OR…………………..SIT AND BIOTCH TO YOUR CATS AND DOGS..AND SAY NOTHING BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR PARENTS AND THEIR PARENTS ALWAYS DID VOTE AS DEMOCRATS…………… SO YOU FEEL YOU SHOULD………………….. BUT…………. THESE RATS ARE NOT THE SAME PARTY!!! NEITHER ARE THE REPUBS…….. IT IS A DIFFERENT WORLD…………….. GO WITH YOUR GUTS!!!!!! IF YOU LOVE AMERICA…..AND JUST WANT TRUTH…AND ALL THE SMEARING AND BRIBES AND CRIMES TO BE STOPPED………………. VOTE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP THIS TIME!!!!! WE HAVE GOT TO GET THE TRUTH TO BE WHAT IS BEST FOR THIS COUNTRY!!

  8. DON’T YOU PEOPLE UNDERSTAND. THIS IS AN ORCHESTRATED COMMUNIST ATTACK ON CAPITALISM. READ A BOOK TITLED “HITLER’S CROSS”. YOU’LL BE FLOORED BY THE SIMILARITY OF THE TACTICS BEING USED BY THE DEMOSCUM TODAY. NEVER FORGET PREMIER NAKITA KRUSCHEV’S THREAT IN 1956…….WE WILL BURY YOU!! THIS IS IT. THE REVOLUTION IS ON. JUST LISTEN TO THE WORDS OF THE DEMOSCUM RUNNING FOR PRES> IT’S ALL COMMUNIST RHETORIC~~~ RIGHT FROM “MEIN KONF”.

  9. Adam Schiff is applying the rules that the Republicans approved. What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. Republicans can’t focus on the facts because the facts show that President Donald (“First you grab them by the pussey” ) Trump was using United States foreign policy not in the interests of the United States but rather to further his own discredited political agenda. President Trump will be the third president impeached. However, he will not be convicts because of the Republicans in the Senate will not vote on the facts but rather vote their politics.

    1. WRONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG GERALD…………….. PRESIDENT TRUMP ……..WAS IN FACT MAKING SURE THAT IT WAS PROPER TO GIVE AWAY ……..OUR……………….. THE HARD WORKING PEOPLES OF THIS NATION…………….MONEY TO THIS NATION……………… AND HE DIDNT DO JACK CRAP TO FURTHER ANY POLIYICAL ANYTHING!!!!!!!………………… PROVE WHAT YOU SPEW OUT OF YOUR MOUTH……………….. YOU CANT!!!!! THERE IS NONE…………………. AND ILL TELL YOU THIS………………… I HAVE WATCHED AND HEARD SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY BOYS AND MEN IN THIS COUNTRY SAY AND DO A LOT WORSE..THEN THAT ONE LINE YOU .JUST HAD TO REPEAT……………..BECAUSE “SOME MEN” LOVCE TO HEAR THOSE WORDS………………OVER AND OVER………….. LIKE YOU AND OTHERS GET SOME CHEAP “THRILL” BY SAYING IT………………….. YOU MUST……………. OR YOU WOULDNT SAY IT ………………… THAT IS DISGUSTING EVEN COMING FROM YOU……………… SO THAT MAKES YOU RIGHT IN LINE TO BE MOCKED AS WELL IF THAT IS WHERE YOU WANT TO DRAG THIS DOWN TO!!!!

  10. There afraid that she will ask the questions that will get to the truth and they can’t have that happen. If it’s a true public inquiry then they should be allowed to ask any questions and have any witnesses they want brought in sworn under oath and they questioned. That includes the Bidens, Adam Schiff and Nancy Pelosi

  11. Well, Madman Schiff’s hero, “Uncle” Adolph was half Jewish. I guess he wants to be like Adolph in every way.

  12. Trump the loser, corrupt wanna-be potus. He is a lying dog with bone spurs. Trump is a thief, a rapist & pedophile who should be in an asylum or in orange Jumpsuit with the rest of his lying clan.

  13. There was a time (I’ve been around a long time) when you could vote for the person not the party. The Democrats have taken away personal choice. There is a Democrat who will be running for a Senate seat in my state. I respect him, and yet, I cannot vote for him. A vote for him is like saying I’m ok with the corrupt Democratic Party . I thought Schiff should be removed from Congress after his pack of lies to the very people whom he represents. Not one Democrat even signed the resolution to censure him for misconduct. They are either Ok with lying, they don’t care or they are cowards. Either way, it’s not ok.

  14. ANYone who claims to love The USA and would stand by and watch and allow this SHAM and disgrace to our Us Constitution, just because you don’t like the outcome of the last election and want to control the next one, should have the class to be ashamed of yourselves. MY God, men have died for the rights that are being denied to duly elected members of Congress and others. You need to face what the Dem Party has become under Mafia Nancy and her crew of sheep.

  15. shiff is having a problem in California, it seem his relationship with two child molester and pornographers is getting more traction and with his problems of being a LGBT himself, it’s hard for him to think one way or another.

  16. Shiffty shiff is a POS lyin’ sack of dog vomit. How he arbitrarily prevent republicans from asking questions just goes to show how abuse of power really is applied. Makes up his own rules in a selective dimawits only meeting so he can stack the deck in an impeachment hearing. He & the rest of his followers are a pathetic excuse for representation of the people. This is their personal agenda. Haven’t provided any legislation to make theAmerican homeless, disabled, elderly, veterans life better.

  17. Nothing better become of this witch hunt.. shiff needs a good old ass spanking for throwing his temper tantrum. His friends that are instigating him to continue playing like this, also need time out… i’m so sick …of hearing about this stupid nonsense. Talk about a country being laughed at… thank you democrats for wasting all your time and money to try to settle a debt because hillary lost… you have really made the United States look foolish… but of course it’s fools getting to run this so called sham..

  18. Elise Stefanik showed Schiff his ass that got chewed off again by the Trump Team. And this time a woman did this to him and it was hilarious to watch Schiff sit there like a puppet on a string. I guess mommy Pelosi wasn’t there to protect him from the more intelligent person that was showing his impeachment probe is just a joke just like all the dems involved with all this. As I have said before I hope that we can get back the taxpayer money from the democratic party that have spent it on there lies. I personally don’t like people in government stealing our money and putting it towards a Political lie. But that is what the dems are all about. Tell you what you want to here to get in office then do nothing to fix anything. To all dems involved in this lame attempt to overthrow our government I hope your holidays go so wrong for you. Trump 2020.

  19. This entire SHAM impeachment inquiry is an embarrassment to our country and a sad time in America for every Patriotic Law Abiding Citizen. The only way to rid our government of this corruption, is to immediately VOTE FOR TERM LIMITS. This is the only way we can regain the integrity and real intent of elected officials responsibilities. Our forefathers never intended for elected Senators, Congressmen and Congresswomen to be “lifetime” appointments. The fact that you have candidates of modest wealth when entering their elected offices become super wealthy while in office and or shortly after leaving a lengthy tenure in office speaks volumes to the potential corruption and irresponsible and potentially unethical, illegal “use” of that office. The ONLY SOLUTION IS TERM LIMITS… Doing so will bring back, what should be the ONLY REASON a person wants to run for political office and that’s to SERVE the CITIZENS of our great country in the highest regard, faithfully honoring your OATH to PROTECT AND PRESERVE OUR CONSTITUTION, including OUR SECOND AMENDMENT, and doing everything possible to help keep every citizen SAFE AND SECURE IN THEIR HOMES. When the opportunity arises, PLEASE VOTE FOR TERM LIMITS…
