Republican legislators stormed a “closed-door” meeting on impeaching President Trump Wednesday; staging a “sit-in” to protest Democrats’ latest efforts to remove the Commander-in-Chief from office.

“House Republicans led by Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., on Wednesday essentially stormed a closed-door session connected to the impeachment investigation of President Trump, prompting House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff to suspend the proceedings in a remarkable scene,” reports Fox News.


“We’re going to try and go in there, and we’re going to try to figure out what’s going on, on behalf of the millions of Americans that we represent that want to see this Congress working for them and not obsess with attacking a president who we believe has not done anything to deserve impeachment,” Gaetz said.

“What is Adam Schiff trying to hide?” asked House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La. “I think that’s the question so many people have, so many of my colleagues have, so many people in the press should have.”

GAETZ ON HANNITY: We’re Seeing a True Fissure in the Democratic Party

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.19.19

Congressman Matt Gaetz stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on Corey Lewandowski’s explosive hearing on Capitol Hill; saying we’re beginning to see a “true fissure” within the Democratic Party.

“I’m watching Corey Lewandowski, and even Democrats are expressing their frustration,” said Hannity.

“Corey Lewandowski was very precise. Democrats looked like a dog chasing a car, and then caught it and then did not know what to do about it. We know the radical left says terrible things, but you should hear what they’re saying about one another,” said Gaetz.

“Behind closed doors, we’re seeing a true fissure in the Democratic Party. You’ve got moderate Democrats saying it’s a crazy idea bringing Corey Lewandowski forward,” he added.


Lewandowski slammed Jerrold Nadler’s Judiciary Committee Tuesday; saying the Russia-Collusion narrative is the “greatest crime committed against the American people” in a generation.

“I think this fake Russia-Collusion narrative is the greatest crime committed against the American people in our generation, if not ever… Members of certain bodies refuse to accept election results,” said Lewandowski.

“If this had been done by a different President to a different party the same way it was done to Donald Trump, those people would already be thrown out of office and people would be in jail. But when you support Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, there’s a different set of rules,” he added.

President Trump praised Lewandowski’s comments on social media, writing “Such a beautiful Opening Statement by Corey Lewandowski! Thank you Corey!”

GAETZ: Democrats Are Stacking the Deck, Can’t ‘Run a Fair Impeachment Inquiry’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.15.19

GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Monday night just hours after he was ejected from the Democrats’ latest impeachment inquiry; saying it’s just more evidence that left-wing lawmakers “can’t win a fair election.”

“You were thrown out of the impeachment inquiry, why?” asked Hannity.

“It’s very bizarre. On September 12th the Judiciary Chairman launched the impeachment inquiry. Today, Adam Schiff removed me as a member of the Judiciary Committee from the deposition he was taking. This is proof that Democrats can’t win a fair election, can’t win a fair debate, and can’t run a fair impeachment inquiry,” said Gaetz.

“We’re going to keep fighting to get to the facts. Time and again, we see that Adam Schiff is running a Kangaroo Court,” he added.


Gaetz was abruptly removed from the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment hearing Monday after the Republican attempted to take-part in the House Intelligence Committee’s latest effort to remove President Trump from office.

“Gaetz, who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, attempted to attend the testimony of Fiona Hill, a former deputy assistant to the president, but was told that because he was not a member of the House Intelligence Committee that he had to leave. The House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees are conducting the impeachment inquiry into Trump,” reports Fox News.

“It’s not like I’m on agriculture,” Gaetz said. “What are the Democrats so afraid of?”

“Judiciary Chairman [Jerry Nadler] claimed to have begun the impeachment inquiry weeks ago,” Gaetz tweeted. “Now, his own Judiciary members aren’t even allowed to participate in it. And yes – my constituents want me actively involved in stopping the #KangarooCourtCoup run by Shifty Schiff.”
