Matt Gaetz while speaking on the House floor: ‘Someone is trying to kill me’

While speaking on the House floor this Wednesday, Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz claimed that there’s currently a plot underway to have him killed.

“I thank the gentleman for yielding because I think someone may be trying to kill me, and if they are successful, I would like my constituents and my family to know who stopped their arrest,” Gaetz started out after the floor was turned over to him.

Gaetz said that someone with the Twitter handle “@CIABobIsAtYourDoor” tweeted to him, “Lookie here pal, I live in Portland. Portland has ordered a hit on you. I accepted the contract. Have a good day.”

“Following this tweet, this individual traveled to Washington DC and the Capitol Police recommended his arrest,” Gaetz claimed. “That’s information that was just shared with me by the Investigation and Threat Assessment section of the Protective Services Bureau.”

“The Department of Justice refused to do so. … And on the eve of the Attorney General testifying before the Judiciary Committee tomorrow, it’s just yet another example of the Department of Justice having a double standard,” he continued. “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.”
