    “So we know, clearly, you are going to interrupt us throughout this hearing.”

    Reps. Jim Jordan and Elise Stefanik quickly challenged House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff after Ranking Member Devin Nunes finished his opening remarks:

    Stefanik: The point of order is, will the chairman continue to prohibit witnesses from answering Republican questions as you’ve done in closed hearings and as you did this week —

    Schiff: [Bangs gavel] The gentlewoman will suspend.

    Stefanik: When you interrupted our —

    Schiff: That is not a proper point of order. The gentlewoman will suspend.

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH): Mr. Speaker — Mr. Chairman, I have a point of order.

    Schiff: The gentleman is not recognized.

    Jordan: Chairman, I have a point of order.

    Schiff: The gentleman is not recognized.

    Jordan: I have a point of order, though.

    Schiff: The gentleman is not recognized. I do want to respond, I allowed the —

    Jordan: [Emphatically] A point of order.

    Schiff: The gentleman is not recognized.

    Jordan: About — there are four transcripts not have not been released —

    Schiff: [Bangs gavel] The gentleman is not recognized.

    Jordan: Holy cow.

    Stefanik did not back down:

    Stefanik: Mr. Chairman, I have a point of order. Mr. Chairman, I have a point of order.

    Schiff: The gentlewoman is not recognized.

    Stefanik: [Exasperated] So we know, clearly, you are going to interrupt us throughout this hearing.

    Schiff: The gentlewoman — [Bangs gavel] — The gentlewoman is not recognized.

    Stefanik did this because of Schiff’s actions on Wednesday. She tried to put the July 25 phone call between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and President Donald Trump into evidence.

    She pointed out that Schiff “mischaracterized the call” before, which he did. Schiff wanted to move away from that point by interrupting her and telling the committee Stefanik “will suspend.”

    I forgot to mention something. I had two careers, one as a professional journalist (when that meant anythin) and the other in finance, where I started out with a money management outfit and was one of three people managing $1 billion in small-capitalization stocks.

    In addition to that $50,000/MONTH “job” at Burisma in Ukraine, Biden’s kid gathered $1.5 billion in assets when he accompanied his dad on a trip to China. Kids, there are only two ways you get that kind of money to run. Either you are really good at what you do and have the numbers to prove it, or you have serious juice.

    In a certain way, I have to admire the Ds. They remind me of the time I took a vacation to the U.K. and France, wore classic American Western wear, right down to the Wranglers and cowboy hat, and posed as a rancher. I told myself, “Hey, if you’re going to lie to people, tell big lies.”

    But the most I got was a free glass of cognac in Paris, an invitation (which I politely declined) to travel to Ethiopia and teach modern American animal husbandry to their cattlemen, and a couple free pints in Scotland, although I’m not sure if the pints were for my hat and lies or whether it was my having insulted London and the English.

    So the Ds are telling a whopper with respect to bribery. They actually seem to believe it, or maybe they’re doing what I did on vacation and managing to keep a straight face. I’d be happy to give ’em a glass of brandy and a couple pints for the performance, but not impeachment and removal.
