Sen. Martha McSally had a combative encounter with a CNN reporter on Thursday as the Senate gears up for President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial. 

Manu Raju, CNN’s senior congressional correspondent, approached McSally, R-Ariz., in a hallway and asked if she would consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial. 

“Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you,” McSally dismissively shot back. 

“You’re not going to comment, senator? About this?” he asked.

“You’re a liberal hack, buddy,” McSally said.

After Raju reported the exchange on Twitter, McSally tweeted a video of the encounter on her own Twitter account.
