House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) blocked Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA) from allowing Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) to ask questions to former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during the second half of Friday's impeachment hearings.

Nunes was given time to question Yovanovitch, but elected to yield his time to Stefanik, a move quickly cut off by Schiff.

Schiff, interrupting Stefanik, said, "The gentlewoman will suspend. The gentlewoman will suspend."

Stefanik replied, "What is the interruption for this time? It is our time."

According to Schiff, "The gentlewoman will suspend. You are not recognized."
