A Florida congressman posted a taunting message to President Donald Trump's former lawyer on Tuesday.
I encourage all Members to be mindful that comments made on social media or in the press can adversely affect the ability of House Committees to obtain the truthful and complete information necessary to fulfill their duties. https://t.co/NDnxkaiFCA pic.twitter.com/DIIgSHgeb5— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) February 26, 2019
Speaker, I want to get the truth too. While it is important 2 create context around the testimony of liars like Michael Cohen, it was NOT my intent to threaten, as some believe I did. I’m deleting the tweet & I should have chosen words that better showed my intent. I’m sorry. https://t.co/Rdbw3sTQJD— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) February 27, 2019
As others have pointed out, Rep. Matt Gaetz, the Republican who posted *that* tweet about Cohen yesterday, is here. He's not on the committee, just standing against the wall. Here he is after going over to tell a member something. pic.twitter.com/bwBDbFdBRl— Emma Loop (@LoopEmma) February 27, 2019
Instead of doing his job, Matt Gaetz is inside the hearing room for the Oversight Committee. This is more witness tampering. He needs to be removed from the hearing and then from Congress. Then he needs to be arrested. This is ridiculous. Photo via @lawindsor pic.twitter.com/3jpdDoCAPL— Scott Dworkin (@funder) February 27, 2019
