Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) suggested that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) might be urged to resign from Congress after an ethics complaint against him is released.
During an interview on Fox News, McCarthy took a shot at Gaetz, who orchestrated his ouster as speaker.
“Unfortunately, we had a number of members doing the exact same thing they did before, stopping bills from moving forward,” the former speaker complained. “We’re going to have to come together.”
“We do know this is really driven, as you know, and you’ve had in the show, Matt Gaetz’s ethics complaint,” he added. “I think once that ethics complaint comes forward, he could have the same problem as Santos has.”
Last week, Rep. George Santos (R-NY) canceled his re-election campaign after an Ethics Committee report suggested he committed fraud.
McCarthy has suggested that Gaetz ousted him as speaker for refusing to kill the ethics complaint he is facing.
