Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN) tweeted out a video clip of himself lying about impeachment evidence -- and was met with furious mockery.
The Indiana Republican told a reporter that he didn't think it was appropriate for a president to coerce a foreign country to investigate a political rival -- as witness testimony and other evidence shows President Trump did to Ukraine's president -- but Braun flatly denied that had occurred.
Braun posted a video clip of the exchange, and other Twitter users wondered why he would do that.
