JUST IN: House Ethics Committee Investigating Rep. Gaetz For ‘Threatening’ Michael Cohen

The House Ethics Committee on Friday announced that it is investigating Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL) for attempting to ‘intimidate’ Trump’s former-lawyer-turned-rat Michael Cohen ahead of his February testimony to Congress.

The Hill reported:

In a statement, House Ethics Committee Chairman Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) and Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Texas), the panel’s ranking Republican, said that Gaetz declined the committee’s request to appear before the committee for an in-person interview in May.

The Ethics Committee said it told Gaetz that it wouldn’t be able to resolve the ethics complaint against him without his testimony and warned that if it couldn’t dispose of the complaint by June 24, the rules would require formally opening an investigative subcommittee to review the allegations.
