The House Ethics Committee is expanding its investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz, reaching out to new witnesses linked to the Justice Department’s investigation into him.

Initially focused on possible lobbying violations, the Committee is now reportedly looking into the sex trafficking investigation concerning the Florida congressman.

Gaetz has responded to the report, expressing skepticism about the Committee’s interests and suggesting it is trying to weaponize its process against him.

“It’s great to see the Ethics Committee has interests beyond trading stocks. They seem to be quite the unusual whales,” Gaetz said.

He maintains that he has been cleared by the Department of Justice and the FBI, and believes the Ethics Committee’s investigation is an attempt to target him.

“I was cleared by the Department of Justice and the FBI, who looked into my life for years,” Gaetz said.

“Now, I believe that the House Ethics Committee is trying to weaponize their process against me because every once in a while up here I’m a rabble-rouser and I don’t go along to get along. And right now, I’m forcing this body to have deal with our debt and our spending,” he said.

“I think all the days in Congress, there are probably in the seven years I’ve been in Congress there have only been tens of days when I haven’t been under one form of ethics investigation or another,” he added.

“I’ve never been found to have violated any ethical laws. I won’t be found to have violated them in this matter either.”
