A tweet came back to bite Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Monday after he seemed to admit that President Donald Trump obstructed justice.


"The Mueller team obstructed way more justice than Trump ever did," the Florida Republican wrote in a tweet, referring to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. President Donald Trump was eventually impeached by Congress for obstruction among other crimes.

Twitter users quickly noted that Gaetz seemed to be acknowledging lawlessness on behalf of the president.
