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.
