Republican storm troopers raid impeachment inquiry

They carried their cell phones, a very direct challenge to rules they all knew. Roughly two-dozen House Republicans stormed a closed-door deposition in secure House Intelligence Committee spaces in a publicity stunt.

Led by Republican Matt Gaetz of Florida, they barged into the deposition and demanded they be allowed to see the closed-door proceedings. The Capitol Police and sergeant at arms were called as the thugs refused to leave the room.
This is likely the first time in US history a closed door inquiry has been attacked and disrupted by zealots.
