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.”

“To me, ‘impeach’ is a very ugly word… To impeach over a letter like that. They don’t mention any of this anymore. What they’re doing now is something that’s never been done before. They don’t want the facts to come out. Republicans have no lawyers, we can’t question, we can’t do a thing,” he added.
