Pelosi says Ethics Committee should investigate Gaetz
By Mike Lillis - 04/01/21 03:49 PM EDT

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested Thursday that the Ethics Committee should launch an investigation into allegations that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) engaged in sexual relations with an underaged girl, a case currently under investigation by the Justice Department.

Pelosi emphasized that if the allegations prove to be true, Gaetz would be subject to criminal penalties falling outside the jurisdiction of Congress to punish its own members, including efforts to strip transgressive lawmakers of committee assignments.

But citing the importance of maintaining "the integrity of the Congress," Pelosi indicated that the Ethics panel could examine the allegations while the Department of Justice continues its probe.

The notion that Gaetz was serving as an informer in an FBI sting against the Rodents is becoming more believable with every passing day.

Congress has no integrity.   There's Democrats in there.
The GOP is not the party leadership.  The GOP is the party MEMBERSHIP.   The members need to kick the leaders out if they leaders are going the wrong way.  No coddling allowed.

I've noticed that 99.44% of what Nancy Pelosi says is 100% bovine fecal matter!
