Thursday's HOT MIC
That Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is a cheeky little monkey.
The conservative congressman has introduced a bill that would allow the president to nominate all eleven judges on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. If that seems like something Democrats would never go along with, think again. The bill is an exact replica of one proposed by top-ranking House Intelligence Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) during the Obama administration.
Oh look -- here he is talking about his 2013 bill on RUSSIA TV.
Now Schiff has been forced to oppose the very same bill he proposed five years ago -- looking very much like the hypocrite he is.
"If there are bipartisan ideas that would have more transparency and more oversight, and protect our civil liberties, I think we should work together rather than work separately," Gaetz told Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
"So did he send you a thankful text when you did that?" Carlson asked, tongue firmly in cheek.
"You know, I asked him to co-sponsor it and I just haven't heard back yet Tucker," Gaetz replied.
