Members of the House Oversight Subcommittee on the Environment quarreled Tuesday during a chaotic 30-minute delay to a hearing that prevented members from attending an impeachment inquiry deposition.  

In one instance, Reps. Kelly Armstrong and Jim Jordan pushed back on a line of questioning from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, saying they “can’t be two places at once.” Both blame the Democratic majority for having scheduled committee hearings while impeachment inquiry depositions were taking place.

Rep. Paul Gosar’s mother defended him against a political attack ad in which six of her other children repudiated the Arizona GOP congressman for his hardline conservative views and conspiracy theories.

Bernadette Gosar, 85, the mother of 10 Gosar children, told The New York Times she was “shocked” and “crushed” that six of her children would agree to appear in, so far, a series of four advertisements condemning their oldest brother for his political beliefs and rhetoric as he seeks a fifth term in Arizona’s 4th District.
