  GOP Rep. Stefanik mocks Schiff, reads his tweets and interviews about whistleblower testimony Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., took some public swipes at Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., mocking him at Friday's impeachment hearing by reading old tweets from when the House Intelligence Committee chairman vowed to have the Ukraine whistleblower testify before his panel. © Provided by Fox News Network LLCStefanik read aloud Schiff’s tweets -- as well as quotes from news reports and television appearances -- where Schiff said that the whistleblower, who remains anonymous, would testify. Schiff has since denied requests for that individual to come forward, calling the potential testimony “redundant” and “unnecessary” last week.

President Trump in a tweet early Sunday labeled Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) a “ new Republican Star .”“ A new Republican Star is born. Great going @EliseStefanik!” he tweeted.

Ms. Stefanik and other Republican members struggled to focus on the message they had hoped to deliver throughout the day: that Representative Lee Zeldin, Republican of New York, said Mr. Trump was just “fighting back.” But that was not how the week was supposed to go, especially at the White

"A new Republican Star is born. Great going @EliseStefanik!" he tweeted.

Trump made the remark while sharing a post from One America News Network host Liz Wheeler with a clip of Stefanik questioning former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch during Friday's public impeachment inquiry hearing.

"Holy cow. Rep. @EliseStefanik absolutely wrecks Adam Schiff & the Democrats' entire impeachment premise," Wheeler tweeted, referring to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.).

Rep. Adam Schiff Says Democrats Will Send 'Charlatan' Trump 'Back to the Golden Throne He Came From'

  Rep. Adam Schiff Says Democrats Will Send 'Charlatan' Trump 'Back to the Golden Throne He Came From' Schiff is a leading figure in the House's impeachment inquiry, which began its public phase this week."The most grave threat to the life and health of our democracy comes from within, from a president without ethical compass, without an understanding of or devotion to our Constitution and the beautiful series of checks and balances it established," he said.

Stefanik , 35, has been rated as one of the most bipartisan members of the House, representing a district in northern New York that backed Democratic President Barack Obama in 2012 before going for Trump in 2016. She was the youngest woman elected to Congress when she took office in 2015 at

Stefanik during last week's hearings emerged as a key defender of Trump on the Intelligence Committee. Intelligence Committee ranking member (R-Calif.) Devin Nunes at one point tried to turn the mic over to her rather than GOP counsel, as mandated in a Democratic-written rule, causing Schiff to gavel her down.

Trump on Sunday morning also retweeted posts from Republicans on the House Oversight Committee and Stefanik herself.

Stefanik is on fire, the Oversight Republicans tweeted. "@RepAdamSchiff can do nothing but watch his #impeachment sham crumble."

"How many times can Adam Schiff say 'the Gentlewoman is NOT recognized'?" Stefanik asked. "He clearly has NO interest in letting Republicans have any say in the impeachment hearings," she added. "Watch him interrupt us multiple times and refuse to yield for our parliamentary questions."

Later Sunday Trump also slammed former George W. Bush campaign aide and ABC contributor Matthew Dowd for a since deleted tweet that read, "Elise Stefanik is a perfect example of why just electing someone because they are a woman or a millennial doesn't necessarily get you the leaders we need."
