House Ethics Committee Widens Investigation Into Matt Gaetz

The House Ethics Committee is reportedly expanding its investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), reaching out to multiple new witnesses with ties to the initial Justice Department (DOJ) investigation. The Republican-led Committee, initially focused on possible lobbying violations by Gaetz, is now delving into the “sex trafficking investigation” involving the Florida congressman, according to an ABC News report.

The Committee’s outreach to individuals linked to the DOJ’s criminal investigation signals a shift in the probe’s scope. Gaetz responded to the report, stating, “It’s great to see the Ethics Committee has interests beyond trading stocks. They seem to be quite the unusual whales.” The Committee had reopened its investigation in July 2023 after the DOJ requested a delay in the initial probe, which concluded without charges against Gaetz.

The congressman, known for his outspoken nature, emphasized that he was cleared by the DOJ and the FBI, who scrutinized his life for years. Gaetz expressed his belief that the House Ethics Committee is attempting to weaponize its process against him, citing his role as a vocal advocate for addressing national debt and spending issues.

Gaetz asserted, “I’ve never been found to have violated any ethical laws. I won’t be found to have violated them in this matter either.” However, with the Ethics Committee broadening its inquiry and venturing into the sex trafficking allegations, the congressman’s challenges seem to be intensifying.
