Congress GOP Justice Department WTF?!

Matt Gaetz Tells CPAC That Congress Should Keep The DOJ From Investigating Him For Sexual Trafficking

Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) in Orlando, Florida on Saturday evening, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) suggested that Congress should have the power to make the Justice Department stop investigating him or anyone else for whatever disgusting crimes they may have committed.

Gaetz is currently under federal investigation for allegedly engaging in the sexual trafficking of an underage girl. If convicted, he could be sentenced to life in prison.

But if the Florida congressman has his way, the investigation would disappear:

“The Judiciary Committee should stop the DOJ from targeting political opponents whether they are parents, whether they are falsely labeled as extremists, or whether they are lawmakers engaged in the oversight of the DOJ.”

Gaetz also accused the FBI of “cheating worse than the Russian figure skating team.” However, he offered no proof for his specious allegation.

Gaetz’s remarks set off a wave of mockery and ridicule on Twitter:
