It didnt take long at Fridays impeachment hearing before Rep. Elise Stefanik, the House Intelligence Committees only Republican woman, was gaveled down by the panels Democratic chairman.
Republicans kept the 35-year-old Harvard graduate from upstate New York in the spotlight all day. Among other things, they gave her a prominent slot to question the days witness, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, even though Stefanik ranks only seventh among the committees nine Republicans.
We know clearly youre going to interrupt us throughout this hearing, Stefanik complained within minutes of Fridays opening gavel.
Though she was breaking committee rules with her interruptions, the outburst gave Republicans a nationally televised opening to accuse Trump nemesis and committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., of treating a woman lawmaker unfairly.
You are gagging the young lady from New York, said the panels top Republican, California Rep. Devon (sic) Nunes.

Is AP classifying her as a nut or a slut?
Saw her talk on Twitter. Boy oh boy is she a smart up-and-comer. Nice looking woman from upstate NY. Smart as a whip, articulate.
The Left beats up girls. Always has, always will. Oh, on that topic - I met Amy Coney Barrett today at a Federalist Society event. “Once in love with Amy, . . .”
We can't have that.
GOP women should have only correctly-sized roles, as determined by the Ass. Press.
I actually saw some left leaning blogs attacking Schiff for “mansplaining” the rules to her. It was pretty funny.
If Buzzie tips over, shes probably SCOTUS bound. If shes tough enough to stand the intense heat. Ive read a bit and I hope shes hard as nails. If she is she could be the Iron Lady on the court. I think DJT will pick her unless she declines.
You can get a sense of Elise Stefanik at her twitter page. Her interviews are direct, smart, polite, articulate, and correct. I see a great future for her.
Of course, the nightly “news” did not include her.
Straight-up Amerikansky Pravda.
Yep. She said she never wanted to go through that again. I said “maybe just once or twice more” and she smiled.
The optics are terrible for Democrats with white suburban women... the voters who gave them their House majority.
Schiff is showing everyone how he treats women he doesnt agree with. Its going a long way to undermining the credibility and legitimacy of the inquiry the Democrats are running.
To be accepted, any impeachment probe must be seen to be fair and above board. Schiff and the Democrats are showing its a sham.
And in the process, theyre making Trump look good.
But she’s not a lawyer. Has a degree in government.
I see her as future president material. Just terrific. Here she is questioning Yovanovich, who is more than willing to tell the truth:
No bias there from #FakeNews AP. Nope, none at all.
It’s embarrising. Republicans need a woman to stand up for the.
Nice accurate reporting by the AP Democrat party. Here is what happened.
What is her conservative voting score?
Itll take someone with a skin as tough as a rhino and mind as sharp as Antonin Scalia if Amy has the sand hooray for her. Maggie Thatcher was one tough lady, Churchill was one tough hombre, who ever comes next has to have a hardass attitude and I hope fidelity to the Constitution. It will take someone very special. IMO. Kavanah did well but the next person will get worse. Did I mention I miss Scalia huugely. Regards.
“Trump has suggested without evidence that the arrangement involved improprieties.”
F.U.A.P. The Democrat media always have to add “without evidence “ when they talk about this obvious corruption. That is like saying cigarettes are accused of causing lung cancer without evidence.
Whats funny is these are the same people accusing Trump of committing a crime without evidence.
The hypocrisy of these people with their double standards and unfair attacks on our President says it all.
