On Saturday, conservative lawyer George Conway tweeted sharp criticism of Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) for deliberately breaking House procedural rules and then complaining that Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) was refusing to let her speak — an act that was widely considered to be a stunt for attention from right-wing media.
