Sean Patrick Maloney: Trump solicited a 'bribe' from Ukraine

Stefanik again plays key role in impeachment hearing

It didn't take long at Friday's impeachment hearing before Rep. Elise Stefanik, the House Intelligence Committee's only Republican woman, was gaveled down by the panel's Democratic chairman.

Stewart said Democrats are "changing the goalposts" and insisted it's "perfectly appropriate" to push for investigations because it's "investigating corruption broadly".

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

"Look, look, I don't think there's any of this information that is going to implicate the President", the Republican said.

Stewart added that evidence provided to House impeachment investigators so far "just doesn't support [impeachment]".

Former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testifies before the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, on November 15, 2019. When asked if the president has done anything merely improper, as opposed to impeachable, Stefanik said, "He is a non-traditional leader, and his voters wanted this non-traditional leadership".

Big 12 slate has potential title game preview with Baylor-OU
He's led the Oklahoma offense to at least 34 points in every game this season, and 41 or more points in eight of nine contests. Since his inaugural 2017 season that saw the Bears go 1-11, Matt Rhule has completely turned Baylor's football program around.

"Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the United States has been involved with at all?" he asked her. Last week, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (R-Calif.) told reporters that Trump should possibly be impeached for bribery, which is one of the impeachable offenses enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. 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. "7 hours that Congress could've spent working for you-on drug price legislation, USMCA, immigration reform, or infrastructure-instead of for their own political careers", it tweeted.

"In the hearing room, the Republicans are praising her and calling her a great American", Maloney said.

As she spoke, Trump doubled down on Twitter: "Everywhere Marie Yovanovitch went turned bad".

This comes as President Trump continues to blast the Democrats' inquiry as the "impeachment witch hunt". Democrats accused him of witness intimidation.

"Maloney argued Stewart's engaging in the "'so what' defense" before asking, "Chris, will you join me on asking the State Department to produce the mountain of records.

Yovanovitch testified during the hearing that she found the tweet "very intimidating".
