House Democrat delighted as Matt Gaetz offers to resign seat to defend Trump

Brendan Boyle was elated after Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz said he would be willing to step down from his seat to defend former President Donald Trump in his upcoming impeachment trial.

Speaking to former Trump White House chief strategist Steve Bannon on his "War Room Pandemic" podcast, Mr Gaetz said: "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. I would do anything I had to do to ensure that the greatest president in my lifetime, one of the greatest president this country has ever had, maybe the greatest president our country has ever had, got a full-throated defence."
