The Miami-Dade Democratic Party filed a complaint with the Florida State Bar against Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz for his attempt to disrupt the House’s impeachment inquiry of Donald Trump.
The complaint cited the October incident in which Gaetz and several of his GOP lawmakers stormed a highly classified information facility during an impeachment proceeding.
“[We have] taken action to hold one of President Trump’s top defenders accountable for violating legal ethics by risking America’s national security to “grandstand” in Congress which entailed breaking into a secure, compartmented information facility, then ordering pizza,” stated the Miami-Dade Democratic Party in a press release.
