Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has reportedly tested positive for Covid-19 less than 24 hours after attending the House Judiciary Committee’s questioning of Attorney General William Barr, according to Politico.
Gohmert has not been wearing a mask around the hill, he told CNN, because he’s been tested regularly. “I don’t have the coronavirus, turns out as of yesterday I’ve never had it. But if I get it, you’ll never see me without a mask,” he said on June 27.
Gohmert was expected to fly to Texas with President Donald Trump on Wednesday. He tested positive during a pre-screen at the White House, according to Politico.
