Press Release

Washington, D.C. — Today, Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) issued the following statement following the House Judiciary Committee’s passage of the “Resolution for Investigative Proceedings,” which changes the rules of the Judiciary Committee, and states that the committee is conducting “an investigation to determine whether to recommend articles of impeachment with respect to President Donald J. Trump.”


“House Democrats are perverting the Founding Fathers’ legitimate safeguards against the Executive Branch for political gain. They have abandoned their responsibilities conferred upon them as Judiciary members and have subjected the American people to a protracted political battle, instead of focusing on issues that matter to the nation. Today’s vote means nothing — it is a farce meant to distract the country from the fact that the Democrats are starving the American people of leadership. House Democrats have failed for two years to convince the American people their efforts are legitimate, and they have failed again today. The country is ready to move on,” said Rep. Gaetz.


Congressman Matt Gaetz spoke in the House Judiciary Committee hearing earlier today, where he equated the Democrats’ efforts to "impeachment in drag," and "low-T impeachment." A video of his remarks can be found below.
