Rep. Gaetz Files Ethics Complaint Against Schiff

Things are now actually getting interesting on Capitol Hill. Not at all happy with the secrecy of the Democrats continuing impeachment proceedings behind closed doors, House Republicans are making a lot of noise.

On Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida went a step further and actually filed an ethics complaint against House Special Committee on Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff of California.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) says he filed a House Ethics complaint against Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Wednesday because Schiff has violated both House ethical standards and House rules.

In a video he posted on Twitter, Rep. Gaetz says he filed the complaint the day before the House’s vote on impeachment proceeding rules so that House members will exactly who they are voting to give unprecedented power to in the impeachment proceedings.

In both his video and his ethics complaint, Rep. Gaetz cites Schiff’s false account of President Donald Trump’s conversation with the president of Ukraine and Schiff’s breach of House rules regarding expulsion of a non-participatory House member from Schiff’s Intel Committee impeachment hearing.

And here’s the video that talks about the sort of power that Adam Schiff would wield if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment resolution passes.


This particular filing may or may not be the correct move at this time, but when it comes to optics, it is one that needs to be made against a representative who is conducting official hearings behind closed doors and who is not allowing the people on the other side of the aisle an opportunity to see transcripts before they are leaked to the media, among other violations of the law known to be happening.

The Republicans in the House seem to have had enough. We the people, the deplorables of flyover country, are behind them.


  1. I’m sorry, but most Republicans are NOT STANDING with Trump, there is only a select few that are outstanding for protecting Trump, REPUBLICANS STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT!!! you need to do more to squash this coup
