Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) clashed with State Department official David Holmes during a particularly testy exchange in Thursday’s impeachment hearing in which the congressman repeatedly interrupted the witness and at one point prompted an eye-roll from him.

Jordan pressed Holmes on why diplomat William Taylor did not bring up that Holmes had overheard the president talking to Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland about investigations in a phone call.

The article goes on to state the following:

“You said this was extremely distinctive experience, one of the most remarkable events of my life,” Jordan said, recounting Holmes description of the call.

Holmes was seen smirking and rolling his eyes as Jordan spoke.  Toward the the end of the questioning, Chairman Adam Schiff jumped into the mix, yelling at Jordan to let the witness finish his answer, and repeatedly banging his gavel when Jordan added new comments.

The first brief video below catches Holmes’ smirks and eye-rolls. The second video is of the full exchange, which includes Schiff jumping into the fray during the last minute.
