Matt Gaetz Compares Dems to ‘Rabid Hyenas,’ Declares There Are ‘No Rules’ Amid Impeachment Probe
Hours after dozens of House Republicans literally stormed the closed-door witness deposition of Pentagon official Laura Cooper, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)—the ringleader of Wednesday’s plan to derail the impeachment inquiry—defended his actions by claiming there are “no rules” while calling Democrats “rabid hyenas.”
“There are no rules,” the Florida lawmaker exclaimed. “If we had rules, Nancy Pelosi would have put this to a vote like established rules that happened with President Clinton, like happened with President Nixon.”
“The Democrats want to preserve the most, like, operational flexibility,” he added. “So if they’re going to have a world with no rules, we have to stop thinking we can use the Marquis of Queensberry rules of engagement when we’re fighting against an angry pack of rabid hyenas. I think the president is right. As Republicans, we need to be tougher in exposing this for the kangaroo court that it is.”
