Nancy Pelosi’s State Of The Union Stunt May Have Broken The Law, Rep. Matt Gaetz Says

New York Post
By Kenneth Garger
February 6, 2020 | 12:35am

Excerpt:

Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz filed an ethics complaint against Nancy Pelosi that said the House Speaker possibly violated numerous House rules — and maybe even broke the law — by tearing up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union speech.

The Florida legislator sent a letter to the House Committee on Ethics requesting they open an investigation and shared the missive on Twitter.

Gaetz wrote that “Speaker Pelosi’s gesture was deeply offensive and appears to violate clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII,” which dictate the House’s official code of conduct.

“Her behaviour does not ‘reflect creditably on the House,’ nor does it follow “the spirit and the letter of the Rules of the House.”

Gaetz, in his letter, said Pelosi’s “unseemly behaviour certainly warrants censure.”

The lawmaker asked that after conducting the ethics probe, the committee make referrals to the Department of Justice “for further investigation and prosecution.”

Censure will never happen. I mean the DNC runs the house so they will only censure the other party. Hell they won't even address this.

Exactly, just get on with business! I don't want any tit for tat. I am really getting sick and tired of the time and money, especially money, wasted on these junior high school girl antics. Although they wouldn’t do anything worthwhile anyway. This country has become so alienated and divided it is sad and scary. I don’t see a way of ever reconciling.

Point out to the nation that it was illegal but then also say we’re moving on.

I saw on FB with some shots from over her shoulder that alot that she had ripped "starter" tears into the pages to facilitate her dramatic little stunt at the end. She must have been worried about looking like MORE of an idiot if she struggled with a tear.

I have already said on another thread that I don't think she has broken any laws, but what a childish and petty bitch she is.

The fiasco of the impeachment farce doesn't reflect creditably on the House, either.

That being said, the House will continue to waste time and taxpayer dollars to pursue their petty, vindictive piss ant behavior and no one is going to put a stop to it.

Sadly, I'm pretty sure you're right.

Yes, use as much damned money as needed!

But finish the damned job!

No more investigations with no charges ever filed!

Use all of the resources as needed (spare no expense) and bring their corrupt asses to justice this time!

I'd rather see my tax money being used to clean out this <censored>ing rat's nest than for any stupid useless social programs!

HANG EM HIGH!

Hence the need for the second amendment.

That thread title maybe worded a bit to strongly. In paragraph 3 he says, "“Speaker Pelosi’s gesture was deeply offensive and appears to violate clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII,”

RULE XXIII CODE OF OFFICIAL CONDUCT

There is hereby established by and for the House the following code of con-duct, to be known as the ‘‘Code of Official Conduct’’:

1. A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House.

2. A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, officer, or employee of the House shall adhere to the spirit and the letter of the Rules of the House and to the rules of duly constituted committees thereof


That's pretty weak sauce. Sort of like charging someone with "conduct unbecoming" or Article 134 "disorders and neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline". Still, though, why not??? After what they put Trump thorough?
