Sensing technical difficulties, Schiff offered a joke. "We've heard enough of Col. Vindman," he quipped, before pressing on. For some of the Republicans sitting in the chamber, however, the joke couldn't have been truer: Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa nodded at Schiff's crack, glancing conspiratorially at her neighbor, Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas.
