Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz will reportedly file ethics charges against Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week after she tore-up President Trump’s State of the Union Address; saying lawmakers simply don’t have the right to “destroy public records.”
“[Pelosi] disgraced the House of Representatives, she embarrassed our country and she destroyed official records. The law does not allow the Speaker of the House to destroy the records of the House and the rules of the House do not permit some little temper tantrum just because you don’t like what the president of the United States says,” said Gaetz Wednesday evening.
“The Democrats really brought the heat down on him,” Gaetz said, referring to Rep. Joe Wilson who yelled ‘You lie!’ during Barack Obama’s address. “By the way, Joe Wilson was right. We ought to apply the same standards to the Democrats that they want to apply to us and there will be an ethics investigation to Nancy Pelosi and we will start the ball rolling to have her censured.”

Nancy Pelosi premeditated what she was going to do. Look at around 9:49 into the State of the Union Address and you can see her pre-tearing the papers.
All the Democrat antics from the last three years should be re-played like a greatest hits album in the months leading up to the 2020 election.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
