Rep. Matt Gaetz, alongside more than two dozen Republicans, is introducing a resolution asserting that former President Donald Trump “did not engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States.”

The resolution, with 60 co-sponsors, aims to show symbolic support for Trump but faces slim chances of passing in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

The timing coincides with the Supreme Court’s hearing on the legality of removing Trump from state primary ballots over the 14th Amendment’s insurrectionist clause.

“The coalition of Republicans … seeks to clarify the stance of the House of Representatives be that President Trump did not participate in actions that would bar him from again holding public office,” Gaetz’s office stated.

“The resolution directly states that ‘President Donald J. Trump did not engage in insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or give aid or comfort to the enemies thereof.'”

Gaetz’s office views the resolution as a statement of fact and expects every Republican to support it.

“This resolution is a no-brainer — controversial only to the most extreme of the far-left — and a statement of fact that every single Republican can be expected to support,” Gaetz’s resolution read. “If the left has the courage to interfere in our elections and weaponize the judicial system against our brethren, we must have the courage to express what is self-evident.”

Key co-sponsors of the resolution include Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Andy Biggs, Kelly Armstrong, and Gary Palmer.
