Someone May Be Trying to Kill Me’: Matt Gaetz Says He Got Death Threat in House Floor Speech

Congressman Matt Gaetz (R- FL) began his House floor speech Wednesday night by saying, “I think someone may be trying to kill me. If they are successful,” he continued, “I would like my constituents and my family to know who stopped their arrest.”

Gaetz said a Twitter user recently sent him a message saying, “I lived in Portland. Portland has ordered a hit on you. I accepted the contract. Have a good day.”

Gaetz said that the Capitol Police “recommended his arrest,” but that the Justice Department “refused to do so.”

“It is just yet another example of the Department of Justice having a double standard,” Gaetz 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. But the Department of Justice doesn’t seem to care so much when it’s Republicans.”
