Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, and Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), its top Republican, painted opposing pictures of the goal of the hearing of former Ukrainian ambassador, Marie Yovanovitch, in their opening statements Friday.

She complained that Schiff experienced unfairly "muzzled" her and other Republicans from inquiring issues.

Meanwhile, many people also came to Stefanik's defense, including Trump, after seeing Conway's attack.

ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos added:"Soft voice testimony from a career diplomat that was also steely and at times, stirring, talking about her anti-corruption efforts in the Ukraine, talking about her reaction when she heard that President Trump was speaking with the president of Ukraine on the phone calling her bad news and saying she was going to go through some things, and also laying out in some detail, how she believed that the campaign against her by Rudy Giuliani and others close to the president, including the president, was based on fabrications and lies". "That is solicitation of a bribe, and that is an impeachable offense listed in the Constitution".
