Did Rep. Elise Stefanik angrily call Rep. Adam Schiff a "lying son of a bitch" during a meeting in Congress? No, that's not true: This post has a clickbait headline apparently to draw attention to a Facebook page. In only a portion of the video in this post, Stefanik criticized Schiff during her remarks over a whistleblower in a 2019 meeting. She never used the phrase "son of a bitch" in referring to Schiff.
The claim appeared in a Facebook post published on September 12, 2022. The title of the post, which included a video, read:
'You 𝐋𝐘𝐈𝐍𝐆 Son 𝐎𝐅 𝐀 𝐁-𝐓𝐂𝐇' Elise Stefanik 𝐆𝐞𝐭𝐬 Up And 𝐒𝐇𝐔𝐓𝐃𝐎𝐖𝐍 Schiff 𝐚𝐭 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬
This is what the post looked like on Facebook at the time of writing:

In the first portion of the video, the footage shows Stefanik criticizing Schiff over a dispute concerning the appearance of a whistleblower in a Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence meeting on November 15, 2019. The rest of the video displays Rep. Chip Roy during an unrelated meeting and then Stefanik at a press conference about immigration policies. At the press conference, Stefanick does not mention Schiff.
During the 13-minute, 27-second video of her remarks, Stefanik never refers to Schiff using any profanity. At the time of writing, a search of Google News produced no stories about "Rep. Elise Stefanik Calling Out Adam Schiff."
