Republicans must get tougher in their push for fairness in Rep. Adam Schiff’s (D-Calif.) impeachment inquiry, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) said Wednesday.

Democrats are “an angry pack of rabid hyenas” who’ve abandoned all rules of fairness in their ruthless attempt to impeach President Donald Trump – and Republicans must respond in kind if they’re going to expose Schiff’s “Kangaroo Court,” Rep. Gaetz told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson:

“There are no rules, Tucker. If we had rules, Nancy Pelosi would have put this issue to a vote and established rules, like happened for President Clinton, like happened for President Nixon. But, the Democrats want to preserve the most operational flexibility.

“And so, if they’re going to have a world with no rules, we have got to stop thinking that we can use the Marquess of Queensberry rules of engagement when we’re fighting against an angry pack of rabid hyenas. And, that’s what we’re facing.

“And I think the president is right: as Republicans, we have got to be tougher in exposing this for the Kangaroo Court that it is.”

Gaetz and other Republicans are demanding transparency and due process - such as allowing the president's counsel to attend and permitting Republicans to call witnesses - in Schiff's impeachment hearing.

The Marquess of Queensberry rules provide a code conduct used to govern boxing matches.
