Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., read several news articles that quote Adam Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee chair, talking about how lawmakers would hear from the whistleblower at the center of the impeachment inquiry. Stefanik read the news headlines on Nov. 15, the second day of a public hearing as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. Stefanik referred to the "abuse of power" in the proceedings by Schiff and the Democrats, citing the news articles to support her assertion. Stefanik then yielded the rest of her time to Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who continued the criticism of Schiff. The impeachment probe centers around a July phone call in which Trump asked the president of Ukraine to investigate former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Yovanovitch has testified that she was forced out of her position after Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, engineered a smear campaign against her.
