Jim Jordan swats down Adam Schiff during impeachment hearings

November 16, 2019

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was brought onto the House Intelligence Committee to help Republicans fight back — and that’s exactly what he’s doing, much to Adam Schiff’s dismay.

As chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been trying to keep an iron-fisted control over the committee proceedings, but Jordan isn’t having any of it.

This came to a head during Friday’s proceedings, when Jordan was questioning former Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. It went down like this.

Jordan was questioning Yovanovitch when Schiff interrupted to make a point about time. In his typical pompous fashion, Schiff intoned:

“Mr. Jordan, I’ve indulged you with extra time, but my indulgence is wearing out.”

Jordan responded, “Our indulgence wore out with you a long time ago, Mr. Chairman, I can tell you that.”

Jordan’s response drew laughter, leading a furious Schiff to reply, “I’m about to gavel you down so if you have a question, I suggest you ask it.”
