What Is He Afraid Of? Adam Schiff Again Refuses to Allow Elise Stefanik to Ask Questions

During the second half of questioning at Friday's impeachment inquiry hearing on Capitol Hill, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff shut down questioning of former Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch from Republican Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. Schiff did so after Ranking Member Devin Nunes yielded his time to Stefanik.

"The gentlewoman will suspend," Schiff asked. 

"What is the interruption for this time?" Stefanik asked. "This is the fifth time you've interrupted duly elected members of Congress."

"You're gagging the gentle lady from New York?" Nunes asked. "Mr. Chair, we control the time. It's been customary in this Committee that whoever controls the time can yield to whoever they wish. It seems appropriate that we let Ms. Stefanik ask her question." 

Watch: 

As Stefanik pointed out, this is the fifth time Schiff has shut down or interrupted questioning from Republicans on the Committee. 

This is the argument being used to justify Schiff's actions. Keep in mind these rules were passed on a party line vote by Democrats.
