Matt Gaetz Apologizes, Deletes Tweet, Then Attends Cohen Hearing (UPDATED)

Matt Gaetz is working the refs pretty hard this week in an effort to climb to the top of the MAGA charts. His district, by the way, is the Florida panhandle, AKA More of Southern Alabama.

Yesterday he tweeted remarks that nearly every analyst read as witness tampering.

The boss, Nancy Pelosi, made it clear House Rules do not approve of Gaetz's tweet. So he apologized and deleted it.

THEN he showed up at the Cohen hearing. No, really.

It's just like the witness tampering scene from The Godfather II, don't you think?

Except Cohen clearly isn't afraid of lil' Matthew Gaetz.


OOPSIE. The Daily Beast reports that Gaetz is under investigation by the Florida State Bar for that thug move.
