Matt Gaetz Hits Nancy Pelosi With Formal Ethics Complaint For Tearing Up Trump’s Speech

Though President Donald Trump, according to his supporters, gave his most impactful and powerful speech of his time in office during Tuesday night’s State of the Union address to the nation, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made most of the headlines on Wednesday after she was caught on camera purposely ripping up the president’s speech afterward.

Pelosi took a significant amount of flak from pundits and supporters on Wednesday, with some experts even alleging that she may be in violation of U.S. federal code for her speech-ripping act.

According to Washington Times, Republican lawmaker Matt Gaetz took the accusations of wrongdoing to a new level after he announced on Twitter that he filed an ethics complaint against the speaker for her post-speech act.

“BREAKING: I’m filing an ethics complaint against @SpeakerPelosi for destroying @realDonaldTrump’s State of the Union speech. Her conduct was beneath the dignity of the House, and a potential violation of law (18 USC 2071). Nobody is above the law. She must be held accountable,” Gaetz tweeted on Wednesday night, attaching a copy of the ethics complaint.

The Senate on Wednesday formally acquitted Trump on both articles of impeachment drafted against him by the Democrat-led House of Representatives, marking an end to the 84-day long impeachment inquiry and trial.
