After Acting Ambassador to Ukraine Bill Taylor finished his opening statement, Schiff began the first round of questioning.
“I thank you both for your testimony and I now recognize myself and the majority counsel—” he said before a Fox News announcer abruptly cut into the live stream to declare a “60-second break.”
Audio of the livestream briefly returned long enough for viewers to hear Schiff say, “Mr. Taylor, I’d like to begin—” before a health insurance commercial cut him off and played for a minute before returning back to his line of questioning.
A picture-in-picture video of the hearing room played while the commercial aired.
