Whether Democrats will lodge impeachment accusations against President Trump or not, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., thinks it’s just another indication of the empty agenda of the party.
“Just take today — we had an empty chair in front of us because Democrats have an empty agenda,” Gaetz said during an appearance on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”
“They don’t have bills to bring forward to reduce the cost of prescription drugs, to deal with the crisis of illegal immigration on our border and so instead we have these show hearings where we stare at empty chair,” Gaetz said of the empty seat left by the president’s former legal counsel Don McGahn declining to testify after being subpoenaed.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Wednesday morning a special House Democrats meeting to discuss the issue of impeachment and other battles, according to Fox News.
“I would hope that people all over the country would expect more of the Congress than this type of coordinated harassment,” Gaetz added.
Gaetz also commented on the news that former Obama-era Attorney General Loretta Lynch flatly accused former FBI Director James Comey of mischaracterizing her statements by repeatedly alleging, under oath, that Lynch privately instructed him to call the Hillary Clinton email probe a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”
Lynch, who stated that Comey’s statement left her “quite surprised,” produced the spectacular comments at the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees ‘ joint closed-door meeting last December. The House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins, R-Ga, published a copy of her testimony on Monday.
