Louie Gohmert Blows Up on House Floor After Being Accused of ‘Spouting Russian Propaganda’

Things got extremely heated during the House’s impeachment debate on Wednesday afternoon when Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) stormed back to the House dais to shout at Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) after accused him of peddling “Russian propaganda.”

During his floor speech, Gohmert—a fervent defender of the president—groused that the impeachment of President Donald Trump was really an effort by Democrats to “stop the investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and Ukraine into the corruption of Ukraine interference in the U.S. election in 2016.”

“I’m deeply concerned that any member of the house would spout Russian propaganda on the floor of the House,” the Judiciary chair sternly said, prompting Gohmert to run back to the podium.

Pointing his finger at Nadler, Gohmert yelled and demanded that the chairman’s words be taken down and stricken from the record. Nadler, for his part, appeared not to react to Gohmert’s angry performance.
