    Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, a self-styled firebrand and close adviser to and surrogate for President Trump, on Monday joined the GOP chorus calling for quick approval of the Supreme Court nominee to be put up by the White House and urged voters to punish Republican senators who block action. Turning his fire on two moderate GOP senators who’ve indicated they’d like to wait on voting until after the November election, Gaetz suggested voters withhold voting for them in the fall. “If Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski are going to withhold their vote for the president’s nominee, then Republicans in those...

    The House Ethics Committee admonished Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., for a 2019 tweet against Michael Cohen that suggested the former attorney to President Trump was unfaithful to his wife and had "girlfriends." Gaetz had already apologized for the tweet that he issued before Cohen's testimony before Congress and said his words were not meant to be construed as threatening to a witness. On Friday, he took the reprimand "with humility" while also noting his big primary election victory earlier this week. “The Ethics Committee has given me an admonishment," Gaetz said in a statement to Fox News. "My fellow Northwest...

Twitter restricted the tweet, preventing it from being liked, replied to or retweeted. Before the social media...

    House Judiciary Committee Member Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., told "Tucker Carlson Tonight" Thursday that it is clear to him "big tech" will try to prevent President Trump from being reelected in November. Gaetz claimed that tech companies "buy off" members of Congress in order to maintain special privileges that local newspapers and television stations do not have. "That's why the president's executive order is one very important next step," he said. "If we just wait around, big tech will steal this election from Donald Trump and the American people."

    The Chinese laboratory at the center of scrutiny over a potential coronavirus leak has been using U.S. government money to carry out research on bats from the caves which scientists believe are the original source of the deadly outbreak. The Wuhan Institute of Virology undertook coronavirus experiments on mammals captured more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan which were funded by a $3.7 million grant from the US government. Sequencing of the COVID-19 genome has traced it back to bats found in Yunnan caves but it was first thought to have transferred to humans at an animal market in Wuhan....

    A Florida congressman made a statement about coronavirus on the House floor. Rep. Matt Gaetz wore a gas-mask on Wednesday during a vote on emergency funding to fight the spread of coronavirus.

However, Vice President Mike Pence said the American public’s risk of contracting the novel coronavirus “remains low,” stressing that there is “no need...
