Expecting #AbsentYourself to start trending momentarily.

Should've said, as GAETZ crashes the Hill deposition...

1. Recommended.

He is either too stupid to know he is wrong here, or an ignorant, arrogant, entitled bully.

Possibly both.

13. Can't he......

be both? I certainly believe he's capable of being both too stupid and an ignorant, arrogant, entitled bully. He is, after all, a Republican "leader".

24. I gladly accept your correction.

And yes, he can indeed be both.

9. That's a mild version, too.

ALEC trains them, the NRA trains them, Frank Luntz trains them, probably Liberty U trains them.

Fear and Loathing is all the GOP has.

10. Gaetz is first asked to leave at the top of page 7

https://www.washingtonpost.com/context/full-transcript-of-testimony-of-fiona-hill-former-top-russia-adviser-to-the-white-house/289badae-624a-4258-8fca-ad19d817a30f/

He continues various cringeworthy, whiny versions of "I don't wanna go." and "You can't make me!" until the bottom of page 9, where Schiff suspends proceedings and starts a clock. The time elapsed until Gaetz leaves is to be taken from time allotted for the minority to pose questions.

Top of p10 restarts the meeting with no explanation of how Gaetz was vacated. Most of the page involves explanation of parliamentary procedure which excludes people like Gaetz, with a comment from Jordan about no mention in PP re losing time. Schiff ignores this comment and asks if Jordan has an opening statement, which he does. Through most of p12, Jordan complains about how unfair impeachment is, and how the Dems are doing it all wrong.

*smh*

16. This is rich!

(from potions of pgs 8 - 10)

THE CHAIRMAN: Mr. Gaetz, you're not a member of the three designated committees that are participating in this interview. You're not permitted to be here . That is the ruling of the chair, and you are required to leave.

MR. GAETZ: Do you have a rule that you're able to cite for that?

THE CHAIRMAN: I am citing the House rules and the deposition rules. You are not permitted to be here.

MR. GAETZ : Which rule?

THE CHAIRMAN: Mr. Gaetz, you are simply delaying the procedures in violation of the rules. Please absent yourself.

MR. GAETZ : Which rule?

THE CHAIRMAN: Mr. Gaetz, why don't you take your spectacle outside? This is not how we conduct ourselves in this committee.

MR. GAETZ: I've seen how you've conducted yourself in this committee, and I'd like to be here to observe.

THE CHAIRMAN: We'll wait until Mr. Gaetz leaves before we begin. I do want to say that this dilatory tactic will come out of the minority's time for questioning.

MR. GAETZ: This isn't dilatory. You can begin any time you like.

THE CHAIRMAN: We' re going to begin the clock. This will come out of the minority's time for questions.

MR. JORDAN: Well, I had a statement I wanted to get to when you interrupted me.

THE CHAIRMAN: We're not back on the record.

[10:43 a .m.]

THE CHAIRMAN: Okay. Let's go back on the record.




He was acting like an 8 year old.

(according to the top of the transcript, the proceeding started at 9:55 am and then Schiff gave his statement and then they ran into Gaetz, so I may ballpark a 20 - 30 minute wait time)

18. I love that the chairman (Schiff?) said he'd take it out of the minoriities questioning time

I hope he continues with that tactic. If Republicans want to waste their time grandstanding, filibustering, then every second of that time should be counted against their time they have to question witnesses.

Actually they probably have no actual questions for witnesses, other than things like "When did the Democrats come to you to get you to turn on, and lie about our great President?"

19. I bet he will do the same thing when it comes time for any open hearings.

Just deduct the circus side-show stuff from their time and show the viewing public how the adults in the room handle the junior high school GOP zoo.

Seems as if it would be wise not to piss off Chairman Schiff.

"With a pitchfork. An old rusty, manure-encrusted, tetanus-infected pitchfork. Sideways."

UNITED STATES - OCTOBER 23: Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., left, and other members conduct a news conference in the Capitol Visitor Center outside the Laura Cooper, deputy assistant secretary of defense, deposition related to the House's impeachment inquiry on Wednesday, October 23, 2019. The Republican members were calling for access to the deposition. (Photo By Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call via AP Images)

So the Fiona Hill and Alexander Vindman impeachment hearing transcripts just dropped. They’re lengthy, but I immediately started skimming Hill’s testimony before intending to head out the door to run some errands.

Oh, but my eyes are glued to the page now.


And I particularly enjoyed this exchange recounting how Rep. Matt Gaetz got his ass thrown out of the meeting:...............


.....................................

Okay, that was fun.

And in case the print was too small for you to read, feel free to head here to see both the Fiona Hill and Vindman transcripts.

But if you simply want a summary, here it is: “You aren’t part of this committee, Mr. Gaetz. Get your broke-ass, bobblehead-looking bum out of here.”

Or words to that effect.

UPDATE: The original version of this story identified this exchange as coming from Alexander Vindman’s deposition. It was part of the Fiona Hill transcript. Thanks to gchaucer2 for setting the record straight.
