Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was questioned during a House Rules Committee hearing on Wednesday as he argued against a criminal referral of Steve Bannon to the Department of Justice after the Trump ally refused to comply with a congressional subpoena.
"Do you accept that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election? Rep. Jaime Raskin (D-MD) asked.
"I accept that Joe Biden is the president," Gaetz replied.
"Do you accept that Joe Biden won the election by over seven million votes and defeated Donald Trump by 306 to 232 in the Electoral College? A margin that Donald Trump called a landslide when he beat Hillary Clinton by the same numbers," Raskin said.
But Gaetz refused to acknowledge Biden legitimacy and also refused to present any evidence to back up his accusations.
"You know what, that might work on Steve Bannon's podcast, but that's not going to work in the Rules Committee of the United States House of Representatives," Raskin said.
