Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-TX) accused Republicans of using “Putin rules” to pass their tax plan when the chairman of the conference committee meeting on Wednesday would not reward his repeated interruptions.

Doggett tried to insert into the meeting a motion, which Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) refused to consider based on the rules.

Brady read out the rules of the conference committee, which Doggett rejected.

“We’re operating under House and Senate and conference rules, not Putin rules!” he yelled at Brady. The Democratic representative again pressed for his motion.

“That motion is not available,” Brady told him.

“The motion is available!” Doggett retorted. The Democrat then tried to interrupt proceedings before Brady moved on.
