House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (Wyo.) said on Sunday that the allegations against one of her harshest critics, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), are “sickening,” but refused to say whether or not he should resign.
While appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” host Margaret Brennan asked Cheney if she would call for Gaetz’s resignation.
The article goes on to state the following:
“You know, as the mother of daughters the charges are certainly sickening. As [Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)] noted, there’s an ethics investigation underway. There are also criminal investigations underway and I’m not gonna comment further on that publicly right now,” Cheney said.
Rep. Cheney also refused to say if she believes that Gaetz should resign from Congress.

The House Ethics Committee announced it is opening an investigation into Gaetz on Friday following allegations of illegal drug use and sharing nude photos of young women with his colleagues on the House floor.
The Ethics probe comes on the heels of The New York Times first reporting that the Florida Republican is being investigated by the DOJ for an alleged inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old girl and a possible violation of sex trafficking laws.
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.
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 and has asserted he has no plans to step down from his congressional seat.
