Article Image Alt Text

Rep. Ben Cline was among the Republican House members who staged a public protest of the impeachment investigations proceedings Wednesday.

While Cline joined the press conference outside of the hearing room, he did not enter the room like the majority of the other Republicans did as they then interrupted the hearing, according to a spokesman for his office. Video of him seen on national television was of Cline was of him walking into the lobby, not into the secure hearing room.

In a Facebook post Wednesday night, Cline wrote, “I joined my colleagues this morning to insist Speaker Pelosi conduct this impeachment process in the light of day and not in the basement of the Capitol behind closed doors and in secret. While I was not allowed inside the SCIF, I will continue to fight for transparency.

SCIF stands for “sensitive compartmented information facility.”
