Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was rebuked on Monday after he attempted to derail a House Judiciary Committee hearing on impeachment.

“I have a parliamentary inquiry,” Gaetz said.

“I will not recognize a parliamentary enquiry at this time,” Nadler told Gaetz.

Undaunted, Gaetz continued: “Is this when we just hear staff ask questions of other staff?”

The Florida Republican droned on as Nadler gaveled for him to cease.

“The members get dealt out of this whole hearing for the next four hours!” he shouted. “You’re going to try to overturn the result of an election with unelected people.”

“The gentleman will suspend,” Nadler said, raising his voice. “The gentleman will not yell out and will not attempt to disrupt the proceedings.”

The Charlottesville rally, as you might recall, was a gathering of white supremacists and neo-Nazis who chanted "Jews will not replace us," and ran a car into a crowd of peaceful counter-protesters, killing Heather Heyer.
