The Daily Beast reports:
A desperate-sounding Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Wednesday unveiled a series of over-the-top proposals for his GOP colleagues to carry out in the wake of Donald Trump being indicted for his role in trying to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Appearing on Newsmax, Gaetz said that Republicans should begin by demanding that Special Counsel Jack Smith “present himself for a transcribed interview with the Judiciary Committee in the next 15 days.”
“If he does not do that, we should send a subpoena. If he ignores the subpoena, we should hold him in criminal contempt of the Congress.” The Florida congressman then claimed that Congress has the authority under federal law to “functionally immunize” Trump.
