One of the transcripts released Friday captures how one of Trump’s soldiers attempted to crash the deposition party at the Capitol basement.
As Fiona Hill’s testimony is beginning, Adam Schiff notices a face in the crowd that doesn’t belong there.
According to the transcript, Schiff interrupts the opening statement of Rep. Jim Jordan, asking whether there is anyone in the room not on the Intelligence, Foreign Affairs or Oversight committees that are conducting the closed-door portion of the investigation.
“Mr. Gaetz, you’re not permitted to be in the room,” he notes.
When Gaetz suggests he should be allowed to stay because he is on the Judiciary Committee, Schiff asks him to “please leave.”
When back and forth continues, along with Jim Jordan attempting to defend Gaetz, Schiff holds firm.
“You’re going to have someone remove me from the hearing?” Gaetz responds, to which Schiff shoots back: “You’re going to remove yourself.”
