Washington DC, dimanche 9 janvier 2022 ((–

Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters of California had scathing remarks for Rep. Matt Gaetz after he made reflecting on the Capitol insurrection. 

« We’re ashamed of nothing. We’re proud of the work that we did on January 6 to make legitimate arguments about election integrity, » Gaetz said about the GOP on Steve Bannon’s radio talk show.

« We’re actually going to walk the grounds that patriotic Americans walked from the White House to the Capitol who had no intent of breaking the law or doing violence, » Gaetz, a Republican from Florida, said alongside a nodding Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green.

Waters said on MSNBC’s « The Sunday Show » Gaetz’s comments were « absolutely outrageous. »

« The world watched what happened, and for them to try and rewrite history and to tell people ‘don’t believe your lying eyes’ is absolutely outrageous, » said Waters, who added that Gaetz « better be concerned » about what’s happening in his sex-trafficking investigation.

Waters said on MSNBC that it is not possible to work with some Republicans. 

« I want my party to rise to this occasion and not try and think that somehow we are going to be able to work something out with them. They have defined themselves as liars, people with no integrity, and they are intent on protecting Trump, and they’re all afraid of him, » Waters said. 

« They are not representing even their constituents, and so Gaetz needs to shut up, » she added.
