Matt Gaetz Chills Critics With 'Terrifying' Prediction About GOP In 2022




 

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Tuesday envisioned an extremist Republican takeover of House oversight in a speech that critics slammed as "terrifying."

"We are going to take power after this next election and when we do, it's not going to be the days of Paul Ryan and Trey Gowdy and no real oversight and no real subpoenas," Gaetz told a press conference highlighting conditions that alleged U.S. Capitol rioters are enduring at the District of Columbia jail.

"It's going to be the days of Jim Jordan and Marjorie Taylor Greene and Dr. Gosar and myself doing everything" to get answers to (debunked) claims about FBI involvement in the deadly violence on Jan. 6, he added.

Gaetz is reportedly under investigation in a federal sex trafficking probe.

The congressman and the lawmakers he named ― Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) ― all voted to overturn the 2020 election result and have peddled Donald Trump's election fraud conspiracy theories.

That Gaetz suggested House oversight would fall under their control was cause for much concern on social media.
