House Intelligence Committee member Elise Stefanik called limitations on access to impeachment inquiry transcripts for committee members “unprecedented.”

The New York Republican said Intel members were notified this week that the panels would print only one copy of a transcript for every member of Congress to view.

“And you would have to read it with a member of Democratic staff. That is unprecedented and unfair,” she said. “Americans should know that their member of Congress has had no access to any of the transcripts.”

Stefanik said the only two transcripts that have been made available to Intel members are testimony from Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special representative to Ukraine who resigned last month; and Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine.
