U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz believes a hitman was sent to kill him – and said U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland’s staff could not care less.
In a brief, 92-second speech on the House floor Wednesday, the Florida Republican asserted that a hired killer from Portland had been sent to Washington to whack him.
“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 even shared the ID of his would-be assassin – sort of.
The congressman identified him by the Twitter account “CIA Bob is at your door.”
Gaetz added that the owner of that account tweeted at him on Oct. 8, saying, “Lookee here pal, I lived in Portland. Portland has ordered a hit on you. I accepted the contract. Have a good day.”
Continuing, Gaezt said that the alleged hitman traveled to Washington, D.C. Accordingly, the U.S. Capitol Police recommended that he be arrested.
Yet, the Justice Department ignored the recommendation, said Gaetz.
“It is just yet another example of the Department of Justice having a double standard,” Gaetz maintained.
“If my name weren’t Gaetz – if it were Omar or Tlaib – you bet this person would have been arrested,” Gaetz said, referring to Reps. Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, both of whom are Democrats and Muslims.
“The Department of Justice doesn’t seem to care too much when it’s Republicans.”
