On Thursday evening, during a conference of the House Judiciary Committee, Democrats introduced a resolution of inquiry into Trump’s ties to Russia, only to be summarily cut off by GOP chairman Bob Goodlatte.

Democrats on the committee were so outraged that they proceeded to walk out of the meeting. 

The Democratic members then proceeded to announce their boycott on a live Facebook stream posted by Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland.
