Matt Gaetz Files Ethics Complaint, Criminal Referral Request Against Nancy Pelosi For Tearing Up SOTU Speech

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has written a letter to the House Ethics Committee requesting an investigation into Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to tear up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address, arguing that “Her unseemly behavior certainly warrants censure.”

Gaetz has also requested a criminal referral for Pelosi’s potential violation of 18 U.S. Code § 2071 (Concealment, removal, or mutilation of documents).

Pelosi, still steaming after House Democrats’ impeachment gambit only drove President Trump’s approval ratings to all time highs, sat through Trump’s Tuesday night address staring daggers into the back of Trump’s head and mumbling to herself – only to test, pre-rip, and then tear up her copy of Trump’s SOTU speech.

 

According to Gaetz, President Trump delivered remarks “which received overwhelming (and frequently bipartisan) support,” that were an “uplifting celebration of the diversity of the American experience and the triumph of the American Spirit.”

Pelosi’s theatrics were “utterly dismissive of the President’s achievements, and, more importantly, the achievements of the American People.”

Gaetz argues that Pelosi’s actions appear to violate clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII, and does not “reflect creditably on the House,” or follow “the spirit and the letter of the Rules of the House.”

    THE REASON THE COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS REMOVED THE POW FLAG FROM THEIR OFFICES AND REPLACED IT WITH THE RUSSIAN FLAG. IT REMINDED THEM OF A CHILD IN THE FETAL POSITION. THE POW HAS HIS HEAD BOWED JUST LIKE A PRISONER OF THE DEMOCRAT WOMB.. THE PRESIDENT SHOULD ISSUE AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT THE POW FLAG MUST GO BACK UP.
    40 DAYS BEFORE 911 48 SENATORS AND 125 CONGRESSMEN VOTED TO BURN THE FLAG. IF YOU LOOK UP THEIR OFFICIAL PICTURE.EVERY ONE HAS A FLAG AS A BACK DROP. THAT FLAG SHOULD BE BURNING SO WE CAN RECOGNIZE AN ENEMY.
