Rep. Gaetz Questions Witnesses During Judiciary Policing Hearing

Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) denounced the left’s dangerous and deadly campaign to “defund the police,” displaying inflammatory tweets by activists promoting radical agendas that were retweeted and supported by progressive Democrat Members of Congress.


Congressman Gaetz asked members of the witness panel to go on record and raise their hand if they wanted to defund the police. No witness raised a hand.


Additionally, Congressman Gaetz addressed the recently-introduced legislation, H.R. 7120, “The Justice in Policing Act”, and promised bipartisan cooperation on sensible reform that does not include defunding the police or that creates an overgeneralized indictment of the institution of law enforcement itself.
