The transcript of a deposition given last month in the Democrat-led impeachment inquiry of President Trump shows a heated exchange between Rep. Matt Gaetz and Adam Schiff, the Democrat overseeing the impeachment push.
The argument took place early on in the Oct. 14 deposition of Fiona Hill, who served as the top White House adviser on Russia issues until July. A transcript of the deposition released on Friday indicates that Gaetz, a Florida Republican, bust into the deposition room in Kool-Aid man-like fashion to protest that members of the House Judiciary Committee were not allowed to take part in the proceedings.
Schiff ordered Gaetz to “absent yourself” from the room. Gaetz protested, and received support from Rep. Jim Jordan, the ranking member of the Oversight Committee, which is one of the three committees taking part in the impeachment proceedings.
