On Friday, the House Ethics Committee announced that they were opening an investigation into the allegations against GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz.

Gaetz is facing an array of allegations and House violations, including sexual misconduct and sharing inappropriate images in the Capitol, all stemming from a federal sex trafficking inquiry claiming that he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old.

The Florida representative has denied all allegations and has not been charged in connection with the probe. He insists that he is a victim of an extortion plot.

“The Committee is aware of public allegations that Representative Matt Gaetz may have engaged in sexual misconduct and/or illicit drug use, shared inappropriate images or videos on the House floor, misused state identification records, converted campaign funds to personal use, and/or accepted a bribe, improper gratuity, or impermissible gift, in violation of House Rules, laws, or other standards of conduct,” the statement said. “The Committee, pursuant to Committee Rule 18(a), has begun an investigation and will gather additional information regarding the allegations.”

After the committee conducts its investigation, it can recommend action to the full House, including a reprimand, censure or expulsion. The first two require a simple majority, but expulsion requires a two-thirds vote of the chamber.

  1. Matt gaetz and people in his situation just need to do the polygraph even though it’s not admissible in court just do the polygraph get the hell out of the way and move on

    • Of course! He plays on their team! Wasting our tax payer dollars is their game but when the proof is right in front of their faces they investigate nothing like Swallwell and his little Chinese spy taking photos together! It appears like they’re throwing the entire sink at Gaetz hoping something will stick! 2022 will be the year of reckoning! It can’t get here soon enough!

      • Sorry dude same people will win the election like they dont for 50 years it all rigged they let a new one ever so often

  2. How many Democrats really did this and walk around like nothing happened. They lie about an honorable and decent man because he’s doing a good job and getting in the way doing it. How long are we the people gonna let this go on. We need to call, right, peaceful protest and anything else that someone can think of within the law to stop this. If we all become complacent we all will become slaves.

  3. Oh ok. So the ethics committee is ok with Eric Swallowswell sleeping with a Chinese spy. Good job ethics committee!

  4. And when do we get an investigation for Hunter Biden and all his criminal acts?? Ever hear the song, “Until the Twelfth of Never”????? He is an arrogant moron with admission to most of the allegations

  5. Quite a selective ethics committee, nothing was done about Eric Swalwell and he was sleeping with a known spy. They do not know the meaning of ethical behavior.

  6. They fear him. Yet Biden himself should be investigated!!! Meanwhile Hunter goes on late night shows.. denies and makes jokes about his crimes.

  7. Matt Gaetz is being sucked into this because this is nothing more than the Deep State Operatives at work. They are feeling very threatened. The Cabal at work. Horrible people!

  8. I call this Democrat stunt/conspiracy a plot to get rid of Gaetz and anyone who supports Trump’s MAGA agenda/policies! This is how a communist government begins and Biden, with Obama’s help, is working hard to change our nation into one.

  9. NOW DO HUNTER BIDEN AND JOE!!! THESE DEMOCRATS ARE OUT OF CONTROL!! OUR REPUBLICANS JUST TALK AND THE DEMOCRATS ACT OVER EVERYTHING. INVESTIGATE HARRIS AND THE BORDER! WHY DIDN’T THEY INVESTIGATE SWALLWELL SLEEPING WITH A CHINA SPY!!!!

  10. This is noting but a Democrat Smear hit job, they’re good at it. Spy sleeping Swallwell still on the Intel Committee .

  11. Republicans need a back bone!!! They need to demand investigation on Hunter, swawell or whatever his name is instead of sitting back and allowing everything to happen while the dems continue their attack

  12. Oh its ok for Eric Swallowell to sleep with a known Chinese spy, Hunter Biden and Beijing Obiden to be engaged in illegal activities, KilleryClinton wiping out her emails, Obummer sends millions to a foreign country and not a damn thing is done to them but the ethics committee is Johnny on the spot to try to nail a fine upstanding gentleman. Talk about hypocrisy on the left! You people suck! The only reason why you want to get rid of Gaetz is that he staunchly supports Trump!

  13. Republicans need to start slamming lawsuits on top of lawsuits on many Democrats now… along with impeachment on Biden/Harris! Bind them down with so much that it distracts and deflects! Just like the Democrats did to Trump and what they are doing now!

  14. we need President trump another term to pardon Mr.Gaetz just in cases..i rather to investigate Pelosi for her 6 children paying this b*tch for that 6 children for maternity leave for 6 years and sick leave and more ..investigate this pelosi of s*x addiction she let her ash to smoke tobacco with her 6 children and government paying her of her s*xaddiction

  15. Funny how fast they want to go after Gaetz, yet nothing with swallowswell,Feinstein or hunter, or even their hero Cuomo. When will the Republicans learn to play the game
