A top Republican came forward with a stunning allegation against Biden’s DOJ.
There’s a serious problem with the way he was treated.
A top Republican said he faced a life-threatening situation because of Joe Biden.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) came forward with a shocking claim on the House floor on Wednesday.
He said that President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice wouldn’t arrest a man who not only allegedly threatened to kill Gaetz but also allegedly traveled to Washington, D.C.
According to Gaetz the Capitol Police recommended the arrest of this man but were blocked by the DOJ.
“I thank the gentleman for yielding because I think someone may be trying to kill me,” Gaetz said. “And if they are successful, I would like my constituents and my family to know who stopped their arrest.”
Gaetz said he received the threat on Twitter.
“Madam Speaker, on October 8, 2021, a Twitter handle, styled, CIA Bob is at your door, tweeted to @RepMattGaetz, ‘Looky here, pal. I lived in Portland. Portland has ordered a hit on you. I accepted the contract. Have a good day.’” Gaetz continued.
“Following this tweet, this individual traveled to Washington, D.C., and the Capitol Police recommended his arrest,” he added. “That’s information that was just shared with me by the investigations and threat assessment section of the Protective Services Bureau, and specifically, George [last name], and George shared with me that the Capitol Police recommended the arrest of this individual and that the Department of Justice refused to do so, declined to do so.
“And on the eve of the Attorney General testifying before the Judiciary Committee tomorrow, it is just yet another example of the Department of Justice having a double standard,” Gaetz added. “If my name weren’t Gaetz, if it were Omar or Tlaib, you bet this person would have been arrested because that’s what the Capitol Police recommended. But the Department of Justice doesn’t seem to care so much when it’s Republicans.”
When Donald Trump was president Democrats claimed that Trump put Omar’s life in danger by reposting a video that showed Omar stating that 9/11 was where “some people did something” interspersed with footage of the aftermath of 9/11.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked to review security both in Washington as well as in her district because of the tweet that Trump posted.
Pelosi has not done the same when there are serious allegations from a Republican.
There’s a clear double standard. Gaetz’s allegations should be easy to verify by the Capitol Police yet Pelosi is unconcerned with getting to the bottom of this troubling claim, instead content to let the mainstream media treat it as a baseless conspiracy.
