A number of fiery exchanges erupted Monday during the The House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearing, led by chairman Jerry Nadler.

Republicans pushed backed on Nadler after he refused to recognize them and continued to slam his mallet on the table.

“The gentleman is NOT recognized,” Nadler declared multiple times during the hearing, slamming his mallet and shutting down the Republicans’ efforts to speak out.

“I have a parliamentary inquiry,” Rep. Matt Gaetz said at one point.

“I will NOT recognize a parliamentary inquiry at this time,” Nadler declared.

“Is this when we just hear staff ask questions of other staff and the members get dealt out of this hearing for the next 4 hours? You’re going to try to overturn the results of an election with unelected people giving testimony,” Gaetz responded.

“The gentleman will suspend!” Nadler declared, slamming his mallet again repeatedly. “This hearing will be considered in an orderly fashion, the gentleman will not yell out!”

Gaetz also spoke out against Nadler during a roll call:

Rep. Steve Scalise tweeted in response to the wild incident, “WATCH: Jerry Nadler shuts down @RepMattGaetz for exposing this hearing for the sham it is. This is when Democrat Members of Congress hide & we just hear staff question other staff for hours. Unelected people directed by Dems are working to overturn an election. Unbelievable.”
