It’s now Matt vs. Pelosi…
This week, Nancy Pelosi received a brutal message from Rep. Matt Gaetz…. And things are about to get nasty!
Gaetz fired back at Pelosi’s House Committee investigating the January 6 event after it moved to have his phone and PC records preserved.
According to Raw Story reports:
Gaetz hit back by saying that he’ll get revenge on Pelosi by seizing her phone records if Republicans take back the House in 2022.
“The reason Nancy Pelosi is doing this is because they want to cast this cloud of criminality,” Gaetz said. “Nancy Pelosi better be careful what she wishes for because if the new tradition when one party gains power in the House of Representatives is that you investigate the personal records and the personal lives of the people who are out of power, well then 2022 and 2023 are going to be very difficult years for the Democrats.”
“Maybe we ought to look at Nancy Pelosi’s phone records with her husband, who benefited millions of dollars off of stock trades and technology bills that were moving through the legislative process,” he added.
However, Gaetz didn’t stop here. He listed the Dems lawmakers who could have their records seized in the upcoming year. Among those Dems are Rep. Eric Swalwell and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s radically liberal team.
“This is unprecedented, this is Marxist, and I look forward to standing up against it,” Gaetz added. “Resist these efforts to really weaponize the Congress against its own members and elected representatives.”
Everything resulted from the House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s statement that companies cooperating with Pelosi’s January 6 commission will be punished under a GOP majority.
He called out Pelosi, Adam Schiff, and Bennie Thompson for “attempts to strong-arm private companies to turn over individuals’ private data.”
He also announced that info forfeiture would “put every American with a phone or computer in the crosshairs of a surveillance state run by Democrat politicians.”
“If these companies comply with the Democrat order to turn over private information, they are in violation of federal law and subject to losing their ability to operate in the United States,” McCarthy said. “If companies still choose to violate federal law, a Republican majority will not forget and will stand with Americans to hold them fully accountable under the law.”
Schiff responded by claiming that McCarthy’s threat was “premised on a falsehood.”
“He’s scared. And I think his boss is scared,” Schiff said. “They didn’t want this commission and this select committee to go forward. They certainly didn’t want it to go forward as it is on a bipartisan basis, and they don’t want the country to know exactly what they were involved in.
“And Kevin McCarthy lives to do whatever Trump wants,” he added. “But he is trying to threaten these companies, and it shows yet again why this man, Kevin McCarthy, can never be allowed to go anywhere near the speaker’s office.”
And the witch hunt against Republicans continues. If Pelosi and her fellow Democrats don’t watch themselves, however, this will not end well for them.
