House Republicans stormed a secure hearing room on Wednesday, where House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and lawmakers were conducting secret impeachment proceedings, demanding entry.

But the GOP members were denied entry by the “Democratic leadership,” according to reports.

The GOP lawmakers sit on panels that are not officially invited to closed-door interviews of Trump administration officials.

The lawmakers were interviewing Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Laura Cooper in the closed-door proceedings.

Republican Rep. Debbie Lesko of Arizona said:

“A whole bunch of Republican Congress members who were duly elected just tried to get in to find out what is going on in their closed hearings, because we were elected to Congress and we don’t even know what is going on."

Lesko sits on the House Judiciary Committee, one of the six committees initially tasked with conducting Nancy Pelosi's impeachment inquiry.

Pelosi has narrowed access to the closed-door questioning to the Intelligence, Oversight committees, Foreign Affairs, and the proceedings even been closed off to the press.

Republicans demanded Schiff, who is running the proceedings, to allow them inside.

But Schiff refused peak to the GOP lawmakers seeking admission.

“He left,” Republican Rep. Roger Marshall of Kansas said.

“He just go up and left. He doesn’t have the guts to tell us why we can’t be in the room, why he doesn’t want this to be transparent.”

Marshal referred ot the closed-door investigation “the biggest farce of my life."

“To disregard, to repudiate, close to 60 million Americans in the 2016 election, if they are going to do that, do it in public,” said Rep. Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican.

“Show your faces so we can all see the travesty you are trying to foist on America.”
