“I challenge all of those guys two and three years from now, because they are living today, Donald Trump is going to be viewed very differently a few years from now, and I can’t wait to be doing the campaign of anybody running against those guys to show these pathetic wienies walking down that step like lemmings, ” he continued.

“There was a 1984 Super Bowl commercial for Apple where they show these guys just marching in lockstep. How pathetic. How do you go home and look at your wife and children? They’re just pathetic people," Deutsch concluded.

House Republicans stormed the hearing on Wednesday to protest the impeachment inquiry process, which is led by House Democrats.

“When we walked in, they looked dumbfounded and the room just came to a stop," Byrne told The Hill on Wednesday. "And we lined up along the wall or sat in chairs expecting them to do something. And after several minutes, Adam Schiff got up and just walked out. And while he was walking out I said, 'Don't go.’”

Republicans have consistently slammed Democrats for only permitting members of the House Intelligence, Oversight and Reform, and Foreign Affairs committees to attend the hearings and depositions regarding the impeachment inquiry, which was sparked by Trump's request to Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenSanders joins Biden atop 2020 Democratic field: poll The Hill's Morning Report - Trump trial begins with clashes, concessions Trump says impeachment lawyers were 'really good' MORE, a leading 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, and his son Hunter.
