Republicans took a page out of the left’s playbook on Wednesday when they decided to protest the seemingly Democrat-exclusive impeachment inquiry of President Trump’s involvement in some way with Ukraine.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (D-Fla.) reportedly led House Republicans in what many are calling a “storming” of House Democrats impeachment proceedings. The demonstration forced House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) to cancel said proceedings.

Gaetz made comments to the media from the basement of the Capitol. Here are the series of video tweets Gaetz posted:

 

 

Other Republican members of Congress who were present for the “storming” tweeted about the display. As you'll see, Republicans are using the hashtag, #StopTheSchiffShow:
