Things just keep getting uglier for Matt Gaetz. We now know that the Feds obtained a search warrant and seized his phone. This means that the Feds must have already had significant evidence against him in order to obtain such a warrant.
Even as a few House Republicans are now vowing to take meek action against Matt Gaetz, it’s becoming clear that he should be removed from House committees now, as we can’t have a Congressman sitting on the House Judiciary Committee when a federal criminal probe is running this deep into him.
Congressman Ted Lieu is dropping the hammer:

It’s unlikely House Republicans will do anything any time soon. It may end up falling upon House Democrats to once again do the Republicans’ job for them, by holding a vote to remove Matt Gaetz from his committee assignments, just as they did with marjorie Taylor Greene.
