WATCH: Rep. Elise Stefanik Shades Chairman Schiff at DNI Hearing

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has been offering some interesting interpretations of both the transcript of the call between President Trump and Ukraine President Zelensky in July and the whistleblower complaint about it.

The transcript disproved Democrats' theory that Trump was guilty of quid pro quo, but on Wednesday Schiff still said the president's phone call was "damning." Schiff had a similar reaction to reading the whistleblower complaint, calling it "deeply disturbing."

On Thursday, as the chairman was kicking off an Intelligence Committee hearing with Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire, he decided to improvise some parts of the phone transcript.

Schiff later explained that his version of events was simply a "summary of the president's call was meant to be, at least part, in parody."

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) was having none of it. She didn't wait to call the chairman out until their proceedings had finished. She took him to task right there.

"On page one - and I'm not going to improvise for parody purposes, like the chairman of this committee did," Stefanik said when she began to read the whistleblower complaint. "I'm going to quote it directly."

She went on to read the whistleblower's confession that he or she "was not a direct witness to most of the events described." Still, officials concluded that even though the complainant was relying on secondhand knowledge, it was "credible" enough to investigate.

Nothing she saw in the document convinced her that impeachment is necessary, she noted on Twitter. But the Democrats made it official earlier this week, before they even laid their eyes on the phone transcript. An impeachment inquiry is happening.

President Trump seems to know what's really going on.
