Newly-released transcripts of former National Security Council official Dr. Fiona Hill’s deposition show the dramatic scene when Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida tried to crash her October 14 hearing.
Gaetz argued he should be present at the deposition by virtue of his membership of the House Judiciary Committee. But Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff had no patience for his antics.
“Mr. Gaetz, take your statement to the press. They do you no good here. So please, absent yourself,” Schiff admonished.
A week after Gaetz unsuccessfully tried to crash the Hill deposition, a group of 30 House Republicans barged into a secure committee room where three committees were trying to depose a Pentagon official.

Newly-released transcripts of former National Security Council official Dr. Fiona Hill’s deposition show the dramatic scene when Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida tried to crash the deposition and was booted out of the room by Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff.

Hill was deposed as part of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump being spearheaded by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Committee on Foreign Affairs, and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

The transcript of Hill’s October 14 deposition reveals the acrimonious exchange between Gaetz, who argued he should be present at the deposition by virtue of his membership of the House Judiciary Committee, which is not one of the three committees pursuing the inquiry, and Schiff, who had no patience for his antics.
