Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) defended his stance against impeaching Donald Trump for a second time on Wednesday by claiming that “the left” has been the cause of violence.

“For months, our cities burned,” Gaetz shouted on the House floor. “And they said nothing or they cheerlead for it… Now some have cited the metaphor that the president lit the flame — well they lit actual flames, actual fires!”

Gaetz complaint was met with boos from his colleagues.

CNN White House correspondent John Harwood called Gaetz out after his remarks.

“Matt Gaetz employs Russian propaganda to defend Trump over an insurrection that delivered an enormous propaganda victory to Vladimir Putin,” Harwood explained.
