Rep. Matt Gaetz, a Trump ally in Congress, got himself into hot water today when he appeared to have threatened a witness the day before he is to testify. The witness is lying Michael Cohen. Gaetz spoke on the floor of the House today and that went fine, but when he tweeted, it all blew up.
I guess tomorrow we’ll find out if there’s anyone Cohen hasn’t lied to!
I think it’s entirely appropriate for any member of this body to challenge the truthfulness, veracity, and character for people who have a history and future full of lies.
That’s the story of Michael Cohen. pic.twitter.com/SCEODKNteR

Earlier today, Rep. Gaetz tweeted: Hey @MichaelCohen212 – Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot….
Cohen is a despicable person but the response to Gaetz’s tweet threat has been brutal. He is being slammed on Twitter for witness tampering. People want him charged.
The hearing tomorrow is a setup but Cohen could be telling the truth or not. He’s a congenital liar so who knows.
This is the tweet in question:
Hey @MichaelCohen212 – Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot…

It’s just a tweet. They are becoming very dangerous.
The representative was asked about it today and he said it was witness testing.
Question: “Congressman, does your tweet amount to witness tampering?:”
Rep. Matt Gaetz: “Absolutely not. It’s witness testing.” https://t.co/pcUAzlfvZq pic.twitter.com/QUpwIIhNHa

Speaker Pelosi wants the ethics panel to investigate. Fine, but it would be nice if she felt the same when Maxine pulls her stunts.
I encourage all Members to be mindful that comments made on social media or in the press can adversely affect the ability of House Committees to obtain the truthful and complete information necessary to fulfill their duties. https://t.co/NDnxkaiFCA pic.twitter.com/DIIgSHgeb5

After all the lies and BS the liberals and the liberal media have told trying to alter a legal election any way possible and they’re gonna have a whine fest because Gaetz dropped a bomb on all their hopes. F..K all the Dimocraps in the House of Reps and the Senate, baby killers!
I think those that will sit in on ANY hearing need to be silent before the hearing and anything else can be very much perceived as tampering or threatening. While I do believe Cohen would sell his wife and kids to stay out of hot water, a hearing should be free of pre hearing “pollution” Tweets can get one in lots of hot water.
