‘They are investigating Matt Gaetz’: Miami Democrats celebrate Florida Bar probe into GOP lawmaker

Published

on

Controversial Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) could suffer professional sanction — or even lose his law license — after a stunt Republicans pulled in an attempt to derail the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.

Three weeks ago, the Miami-Dade Democratic Party filed an official complaint over Gaetz storming a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) in October.

“Impeachment proceedings are a legal process leading to a trial, and therefore covered by the Florida Bar’s rules of conduct,” Chairman Steve Simeonidis said at the time.

Simeonidis posted a picture of a letter he reportedly received from the Florida Bar.

“The Florida Bar is aware of the issue you reported and is taking appropriate measures,” the letter says. “A file has been open.”

Published

At Thursday's coronavirus task force briefing, President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner took the stand to discuss his own role in combating the outbreak.

Commenters on social media, however, did not care for what he had to say — and roundly criticized his appearance.

I didn't see it so let me just get this straight: Jared Kushner -- who has exactly about as many qualifications for dealing with a pandemic as he did for concocting Mideast peace -- was on hand to brief the American people about the #COVID19Pandemic but Dr. Fauci wasn't? Ok then. https://t.co/I94u3dYCAB
