Gaetz says impeachment inquiry is Democrats’ ‘cop-out’ for lack of an agenda

Democrats have failed to produce any substantive legislation from their time in the majority, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) claimed in an interview on “Life, Liberty & Levin.”

His statements. “What would the Democrats use to galvanize their movement if not impeachment?” Gaetz asked. “Would Democrats be able to point to their infrastructure plan? Would they be able to point to sound policy on trade? Of course not. They haven’t done anything. And so this is the cop-out for the lack of an agenda that impacts the lives of the American people.”

Gaetz, a member of the House Armed Services and Judiciary Committees, claimed House Democrats have issued more subpoenas than passed bills on to the Senate, Fox News reports.

Gaetz claimed lawmakers from districts that were won by President Trump in 2016 may have to answer for their party’s activities since that time. “I don’t know what they’re going to tell people who were promised, especially in these districts that Donald Trump won, that their member of Congress would go and work with the president to try to help folks,” he said.

“Instead, they are caving to the most radical fringes of the left-Democrat base, because I think they’re afraid of him.”
