Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, one of President Donald Trump's strongest and most vocal congressional allies, praised House Democrats for the way they presented the case against Trump in his impeachment trial.
The Democrats made their case to the public as if it were "cable news," Gaetz told Politico, while commending their use of multimedia during the trial.
Meanwhile, the defense team's case looked like "an 8th grade book report," Gaetz told Politico. "Actually, no, I take that back," he said, noting that an 8th grader would actually know how to use PowerPoint and iPads.
