McCarthy Says Gaetz Would Be Stripped Of Committee Assignments If Sex Allegations “Come Out To Be True”

The Hill reports:

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said Wednesday that GOP leaders will remove Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) from his committee assignments if he’s found to be guilty of sex trafficking, a case currently under investigation by the Justice Department.

“Those are serious implications. If it comes out to be true, yes, we would remove him if that’s the case,” McCarthy told Fox News. “But right now Matt Gaetz says that it’s not true and we don’t have any information. So let’s get all the information.”

McCarthy, it’s worth noting, is no fan of Gaetz due to the attacks over his defense of Liz Cheney.
