Washington, D.C. — U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) today issued the following statement in response to Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s dismissal of President Donald Trump’s ongoing assertions that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) acted with impropriety when it used spies to monitor and surveil members of Trump’s campaign staff in 2016.

“It is shameful to see House Republican Leadership emphasize support for FBI and DOJ intelligence collection on the Trump Campaign. Our leadership should be setting impeachment hearings for those who refuse to produce documents. Instead, some are carrying water for a Justice Department that has already resisted congressional oversight, misrepresented material facts to a FISA court, improperly redacted documents and failed to disclose spying on a presidential campaign. Sad!,” Rep. Gaetz said.

Earlier last night, Rep. Gaetz appeared on the Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs Tonight to further discuss the issue. A clip of the video can be found below.
