It appears Schiff may be a bit biased when it comes to hearings. During the inquiry hearing of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch, Schiff repeatedly silenced GOP Rep Stefanik. She was yielded time and found that her voice was not allowed to be heard. Or that’s the way it seemed as Schiff kept on silencing her.

Nunes: I know Ms. Stefanik, you had a few quick questions for the ambassador.  I yield to you, Ms. Stefanik.

Stefanik: Thank you, Mr. Nunes. Ambassador Yovanovitch–

Schiff: The gentlewoman will suspend. The gentlewoman will suspend.

Stefanik: What is the interruption for this time?

Schiff: The gentlewoman will suspend, you’re not recognized. Mr. Nunes–

Nunes: I just recognized Ms. Stefanik.

Schiff: Under the House Res. 660 you are not allowed to yield time except to counsel.

Stefanik: The ranking member to another member of Congress.

Schiff: Nope, nope. That is not accurate.

Nunes: You’re gagging the gentlewoman from New York?

Stefanik: That is accurate. Ambassador Yovanovitch I want to thank you for being here today–

Schiff: The gentlewoman will suspend, you’re not recognized.

Stefanik: This is the fifth time that you have elected members of Congress, duly-elected members of Congress–

Schiff: The gentlewoman will suspend.

Nunes: Mr. Chair, we control the time and customary to this committee, whoever controls the time can yield to whoever they wish. If we have members of Congress who have a few questions, it seems appropriate that we would let Ms. Stefanik ask her question.

Schiff: Mr. Nunes, you or minority counsel are recognized.”

It looks like Schiff is showing some bias here. He could just allow Nunes to yield his time to Stefanik but is instead, choosing to be difficult. But I guess he wants to make sure he can control the narrative and cut out Republicans as much as possible.
