Amb. Yovanovitch disputes idea that there was Ukrainian effort against Trump election

"I said, 'Hi, I'm Elise ... I didn't want to engage".

If Stefanik, by being outspoken and persistent in her complaint, was attempting to rile up Trump critics - it worked.

"I've had one conversation with her when we were in the elevator", Stefanik said.

Democrats and Republicans stay on message amid the latest public impeachment hearing.

"So, for the millions of Americans watching, President Obama's own State Department was so concerned about potential conflicts of interest from Hunter Biden's role at Burisma that they raised it themselves while prepping this wonderful ambassador nominee before her confirmation", the congresswoman said according to PBS News Hour. Now (Speaker) Pelosi said we're going to impeach and remove the president for bribery.

Stefanik came into the spotlight for several testy exchanges with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) throughout the week in which she pointed out to the Californian lawmaker that she was being denied the time to question the witness.

"Mr. Chairman, will you be prohibiting witnesses from answering members' questions as you have in the closed-door depositions?" she asked, to Schiff's dismay.

"It's big deal because before this person was a whistleblower, they were coordinating with Democratic staff members who turned them into a whistleblower and advised them about the process", she added. "The political rollout and communications rollout became correct so orchestrated".

Among other things, they gave her a prominent slot to question the day's witness, former US ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, even though Stefanik ranks only seventh among the committee's nine Republicans. Schiff said it wasn't a "proper" point of order, and then declined to recognize her colleague, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who also tried to raise a parliamentary question. "It is quite clear that Adam Schiff does not like hearing the facts when I lay them out but that's his problem not mine".

ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos added:"Soft voice testimony from a career diplomat that was also steely and at times, stirring, talking about her anti-corruption efforts in the Ukraine, talking about her reaction when she heard that President Trump was speaking with the president of Ukraine on the phone calling her bad news and saying she was going to go through some things, and also laying out in some detail, how she believed that the campaign against her by Rudy Giuliani and others close to the president, including the president, was based on fabrications and lies".

"I don't think the evidence is building at all-and I'm being honest on this-I think the evidence is crumbling", he said.

"I disagreed with the tweet".

Stefanik married Matthew Manda, a comms director for Kansas Congressman Kevin Yoder, two years in the past in a lavish ceremony in Saratoga County.

She's a voracious reader of presidential biographies, although she says that is no clue to her ambitions. "I have always focused on delivering results to my district".
