"Elise Stefanik is a flawless example of why just electing someone because they are a woman or a millennial doesn't necessarily get you the leaders we need", ABC Information Chief Political Analyst Matthew Dowd mentioned in a tweet Wednesday. "I said, 'Hi, I'm Elise ..." To make the case, she reeled off a dozen or extra of Schiff's personal previous statements on the matter. When she was criticized by a major Republican, a male, she tweeted, "NEWSFLASH I wasn't inquiring for permission".
"Adam Schiff became adamant about the whistleblower testifying, Speaker Pelosi said she supported the whistleblower testifying".
During the impeachment hearings, Stefanik said plans to hear from the whistleblower in a closed-door session were nixed after news emerged that the individual had met with members of the committee's Democratic staff.
Stefanik came into the spotlight for several testy exchanges with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) throughout the week in which she pointed out to the Californian lawmaker that she was being denied the time to question the witness.
What followed was a back and forth between Nunes and Schiff as to whether the Republican could offer his time to a fellow member of Congress, rather than minority counsel. "The political rollout and communications rollout was just so orchestrated".
Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), a member of one of the committee leading the House impeachment probe, said on Sunday that he'd officially call on the State Department to comply with impeachment investigators' subpoenas if Democrats subpoena the whistleblower who flagged President Donald Trump's call with Ukraine.
"This was Adam Schiff's first opportunity in front of the public; these hearings have been conducted in a basement bunker, part of his regime of secrecy", Stefanik said following the Wednesday hearing, the Daily Wire reported.
During the hearing, President Trump tweeted about Yovanovitch, saying that "everywhere" she went, the situation there "turned bad". However she did concede it was a mistake.
"I don't think the evidence is building at all-and I'm being honest on this-I think the evidence is crumbling", he said.
You asked a parliamentary inquiry, and I am responding - or point of order, and I'm responding.
Stefanik married Matthew Manda, a comms director for Kansas Congressman Kevin Yoder, two years within the past in a lavish ceremony in Saratoga County. "I admire always centered on delivering outcomes to my district".
