Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz will reportedly file ethics charges against Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week after she tore-up President Trump’s State of the Union Address; saying lawmakers simply don’t have the right to “destroy public records.”
“[Pelosi] disgraced the House of Representatives, she embarrassed our country and she destroyed official records. The law does not allow the Speaker of the House to destroy the records of the House and the rules of the House do not permit some little temper tantrum just because you don’t like what the president of the United States says,” said Gaetz Wednesday evening.
“The Democrats really brought the heat down on him,” Gaetz said, referring to Rep. Joe Wilson who yelled ‘You lie!’ during Barack Obama’s address. “By the way, Joe Wilson was right. We ought to apply the same standards to the Democrats that they want to apply to us and there will be an ethics investigation to Nancy Pelosi and we will start the ball rolling to have her censured.”

GAETZ ON HANNITY: Schiff’s Dirty Tricks Can’t Change the Facts on Impeachment
Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz spoke with Sean Hannity Tuesday night on the Democrats’ public impeachment hearings; saying Adam Schiff’s “dirty tricks” simply can’t change the facts regarding President Trump and the Ukraine.
“It’s obvious to the American people that the Democrats can’t win a fair fight… So you see Democrats do everything they can to limit our ability to call witnesses, limit our ability to yield time,” said Gaetz.
“All of the dirty tricks from Adam Schiff’s bag of tricks can’t change the facts… There shouldn’t be an impeachment,” he added.

GAETZ ON HANNITY: We’re Seeing a True Fissure in the Democratic Party
Congressman Matt Gaetz stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night to weigh-in on Corey Lewandowski’s explosive hearing on Capitol Hill; saying we’re beginning to see a “true fissure” within the Democratic Party.
“I’m watching Corey Lewandowski, and even Democrats are expressing their frustration,” said Hannity.
“Corey Lewandowski was very precise. Democrats looked like a dog chasing a car, and then caught it and then did not know what to do about it. We know the radical left says terrible things, but you should hear what they’re saying about one another,” said Gaetz.
“Behind closed doors, we’re seeing a true fissure in the Democratic Party. You’ve got moderate Democrats saying it’s a crazy idea bringing Corey Lewandowski forward,” he added.
Lewandowski slammed Jerrold Nadler’s Judiciary Committee Tuesday; saying the Russia-Collusion narrative is the “greatest crime committed against the American people” in a generation.
“I think this fake Russia-Collusion narrative is the greatest crime committed against the American people in our generation, if not ever… Members of certain bodies refuse to accept election results,” said Lewandowski.
“If this had been done by a different President to a different party the same way it was done to Donald Trump, those people would already be thrown out of office and people would be in jail. But when you support Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, there’s a different set of rules,” he added.
