US Reps Member Files Ethic Complaints Against Pelosi For Tearing Trump’s Speech

Florida Congressman on Thursday announced that he is filing an ethics complaint against Speaker of the US House for destroying President ’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,” the Republican tweeted.

At the end of President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday, Pelosi was seen on camera ripping the speech in half. She later called the speech a “manifesto of mistruths.”

“It is hard to overlook the symbolism of such a gesture — the sense that Speaker Pelosi was utterly dismissive of the President’s achievements, and more importantly, the achievements of the American people,” Gaetz said in the complaint. “Speaker Pelosi’s gesture was deeply offense, and appears to violate clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII (“Code of Official Conduct”).”

Gaetz has represented Florida’s 1st congressional district since 2017.
