The feud between CNN host Jake Tapper and veteran Brian Mast, a Republican representative from Florida, continued Wednesday evening with Mast reminding the host how much he sacrificed for Tapper’s right to say “whatever the hell he wants.”
The spat began when Mast posed a question on the House floor during Wednesday afternoon’s impeachment proceedings.
“I rise with a very simple question,” he said. “On Jan. 6, thousands of people broke the law by taking siege of our Capitol here with us inside. Has any one of those persons who brought violence on our Capitol been brought here to say whether they did that because of our president?”
