Rep. Gaetz: Schiff Kicked Me Out of Interview With Former Russia Advisor

Fiona Hill, a former White House advisor on Russia who resigned just before President Trump's much talked about phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, is testifying on Capitol Hill Monday morning as part of the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), assuming he was allowed to sit in on the testimony because he's a member of the  House Judiciary Committee, found that he was mistaken.

Gaetz told the press that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff had asked him to leave because only the Intelligence, Oversight and Reform, and Foreign Affairs committees, who are leading the impeachment inquiry, had the right to be there.

Following the incident Gaetz tried to explain on Twitter why he felt he had the right to participate.

Gaetz's critics sided with Schiff and his explanation of the rules, but a few of his colleagues said it just proved the Democrats have something to hide.

Schiff suggested this weekend that Congress does not even need to prove that the president is guilty of quid pro quo in their quest impeach him. His trying to "coerce" a foreign power to investigate Joe Biden was enough, he said. 

President Trump is still fuming at Schiff for embellishing parts of his phone call with President Zelensky.
