Ethics War Brewing? Gaetz Files Complaint Against Schiff

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

Rep. Matt Gaetz filed a complaint against the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in a move that could usher an end to a decadeslong bipartisan ethics détente.

The Florida Republican sent a letter to the 10-member bipartisan panel led by Rep. Ted Deutch, calling on the committee to investigate Rep. Adam Schiff over the California lawmaker's handling of impeachment proceedings against President Trump.
It’s rare for a lawmaker to file an ethics complaint against another member, in part because lawmakers are fearful of sparking retaliatory complaints.

House lawmakers have seldom filed ethics complaints, particularly across party lines, after the two sides agreed to end a partisan ethics war that consumed Congress more than two decades ago.

Since then, ethics investigations have typically been self-initiated by the committee or referred by an independent outside panel, the Office of Congressional Ethics, which was created by the House and can field complaints from groups and individuals not serving in Congress.

Gaetz wants the panel to investigate Schiff’s opening statement at the only public impeachment hearing so far, in which Schiff delivered a parody account of President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which is at the heart of the impeachment proceedings.

Gaetz also wants Ethics to investigate Schiff’s past statements in which Schiff claimed to have knowledge of evidence Trump colluded with Russia ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

A two-year investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller did not charge Trump with colluding with the Russians, although Democrats say the Mueller report includes evidence of collusion.

And Gaetz wants the Ethics panel to look into Schiff’s decision to block Gaetz and other Republicans from the closed-door impeachment proceedings taking place in the Capitol basement.

Dare to dream. :cloud9:


Drain the swamp. Them covering for each other needs to end yesterday... of course severe penalties for filing false complaints would need to be added to prevent the democrats from getting all excited and wiping out a forest by sheer volume.
