Witness tampering is a serious offense, but even more so when the act is committed by a sitting member of Congress.
Matt Gaetz's open attempt to stop Michael Cohen from testifying is a disgusting display of privilege that we have witnessed repeatedly from Congressional and Senate Republicans alike. Much like Donald Trump, Matt Gaetz believes that he is above the law.
Congress must begin an ethics investigation into Representative Gaetz's blatant threat immediately. If found that Gaetz indeed violated the law, they must then immediately move to expel him from Congress.
His admission and apology for his behavior is appreciated, but he still must face the consequences of his actions. Witness tampering or any such crime committed by an elected official makes then unfit to serve.
Sign the petition today and demand Congress expel Matt Gaetz.
