Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) says he is willing to give up his seat in Congress for Trump

Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has offered to surrender his seat in Congress so he can represent President Donald Trump in his upcoming Senate impeachment trial.

Gaetz is one of Trump’s most ardent supporters and says he would “be honored to” give up his seat in the House of Representatives and leave his home to join the 45th president’s legal team.

The Florida congressman said answering Trump’s call “would be the top priority of my life.”

The 38-year-old made the pledge during a podcast hosted by former Trump advisor Steve Bannon.

He told Bannon that, in his eyes, Trump is the “greatest president in my lifetime, one of the greatest presidents our country has ever had, maybe the greatest president our country has ever had.”

Rep. Gaetz’s comments came after reports surfaced confirming Trump’s initial legal team had failed to show the same level of commitment.

During the Wednesday interview on Bannon’s War Room podcast, Gaetz announced he would be willing to resign if Trump asked him to defend him.

“I love my district,” Gaetz said.

“I love representing them, but I view this cancellation of the Trump presidency and the Trump movement as one of the major risks to my people, both in my district and all throughout this great country.”

“If the president called me and wanted me to go defend him on the floor of the Senate, that would be the top priority in my life.”

“I would leave my House seat. I would leave my home,” the patriotic Republican revealed.

“I would do anything I had to do to ensure that the greatest president in my lifetime — one of the greatest presidents our country has ever had, maybe the greatest president our country has ever had — got a full-throated defense that wasn’t crouched down, that wasn’t in fear of losing some moderate Republican senator, but that was worthy of the fight that he gave to the great people of this country for four years.”

In Gaetz’s opinion, when it comes to Trump’s current team, “the president so far has gotten a low-energy defense.”

The news that Trump’s defense may not be up to the task is troubling, especially because the upcoming impeachment case against the former president is nothing but a complete sham, according to Western Journal.

House Democratic impeachment managers filed a pre-trial brief with the U.S. Senate on Tuesday claiming Trump “summoned a mob to Washington, exhorted them to a frenzy, and aimed them like a loaded cannon down Pennsylvania Avenue,” referring to the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion.

Obviously, this is complete nonsense, considering Trump repeatedly called for peace and asked the rioters to go home.

Even if Trump’s rhetoric on election fraud did contribute to heating tensions at the Capitol, his complicity pales in comparison to Democrat’s own culpability in heating up tensions with anti-police rhetoric over the course of the last year, which undeniably led to a countless number of riots and looting sprees that raged across the country for months on end.

President Trump is ‘maybe the greatest president our country has ever had,’ Gaetz said

Shortly after the Capitol incursion took place, Gaetz made that point quite clear during a fiery speech on the House floor in which he called his Democratic colleagues out for their hypocritical condemnation of then-President Trump.

“Another important point for the country is that this morning President Trump explicitly called for demonstrations and protests to be peaceful,” Gaetz said.

“You can moan and groan, but he was far more explicit about his calls for peace than some of the BLM and left-wing rioters were this summer when we saw violence sweep across this nation.”

Leftists’ lust for power and domination wasn’t satiated by winning the presidency and Senate.

They’ll only be satisfied when they completely destroy the one president that showed the world who they really are.

Thankfully, full-blooded conservatives like Matt Gaetz are willing to do what is right and fight back, even at a great personal cost.

If only more Republicans had the courage to speak out as Gaetz has throughout this entire process.
