Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) named the latest person that right-wing media believes is the White House whistleblower during Wednesday’s impeachment proceedings in the House Judiciary Committee.
Louie Gohmert just read the purported name of the whistleblower.

People were shocked by Gohmert’s speech. People suggested the Texas Republican should be referred to the House Ethics Committee for investigation and/or be censured and/or expelled from the House of Representatives.
Here’s some of what people were saying:
Cut his mic, escort him the hearing, strip him of all committees….then make him sit a Matt Gaetz and Jim Jordan’s lunch table!

Dude should be expelled

He should be censured.

Someone thinks they are above the law, sent him to ethics

Take him out now strip him clean and tell him he’s no longer a part of this committee. Come on Jerry do it.

Gohmert should be held accountable for this.

Louie Gohmert is the dumbest member of the house. Thank you for coming to my obvious things talk.

Louie Gohmert makes Collins and Jordan seem articulate.

Disgusting. I’m surprised he can remember his own name let alone the whistleblowers

Huh. Louie Gohmert's naming of the alleged whistleblower was met with no response from the Democrats.
In open & closed hearings, Schiff often interjected/noted when Rs even got close to the whistleblower's identity to try and shut it down

Had been hearing murmurs Gohmert was gonna do this for a while.. looks like he finally pulled the trigger during the Judiciary Committee’s last impeachment hearing https://t.co/8N1wvUj8GO

Louie Gohmert is a living, breathing cringe compilation.

If Rep. Louie Gohmert wasn't here yelling right now he'd be starring in a Plano, Texas theater production of Our Town and he'd be sensational.
