Several House Republican are calling for a House Ethics Committee investigation into Texas Democrat Representative Joaquin Castro after he publicized the identities of several prominent Trump 2020 donors in his district, subtly encouraging a boycott of their San Antonio businesses.
Castro had tweeted about the Trump donors Tuesday, receiving a sharp backlash for what many called shameless intimidation tactics.
Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs has drafted a letter on the matter, sending it to the chair of the committee, Florida Democrat Ted Deutch.
“By publishing a list of private citizens who donated to his political opponent, Rep. Castro sought to encourage harassment against those citizens simply on the basis of their political beliefs,” it read.
“It cannot be fairly argued that Rep. Castro had any other purpose in posting that list and telling his activist followers that those individuals were inciting hate. Whether he intended to provoke physical violence or merely verbal harassment, his intent was to chill the free speech and free association rights of Americans.”
Jody Hice, Ted Budd, Debbie Lesko, Jeff Duncan, Randy Weber and Matt Gaetz signed off on the letter.
The information Castro shared is publicly accessible, but it’s relatively unprecedented for a member of Congress to publicize it with the intent of inciting a boycott against his own constituents.
Castro’s an identical twin brother of former Obama administration cabinet member Julian Castro, who is running a Democratic campaign for President. The other Castro has made radically pro-illegal immigration policies the defining attribute of his campaign, going so far as to call for the “decriminalization” of illegal immigration.
The Castro with presidential ambitions has defended his brother’s schoolyard bully-style tactics.
Joaquin and I will keep fighting. The American people will fight every day for our nation, against your hate, your corruption, and your ego. And we’ll win. #AdiósTrump https://t.co/nC0haWRydr pic.twitter.com/mMneHqXyT5

Mad Maxine Says She Has Met Crips and Bloods ‘In The Hood’ with ‘More Integrity’ Than the President
She is off her rocker.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) made the stunning claim recently that she has met gangbangers from the inner city with “more integrity” than President Donald Trump.
The Congresswoman, who has been ridiculed by the President for having a low IQ, made the comment while appearing on Showtime’s “Desus & Mero.”
“I have worked in some of the toughest communities,” she said in a clip that was tweeted by the hosts Thursday. “I’ve worked with gangs. I’ve worked with Crips, I’ve worked with Bloods. And there’s more integrity in many of these young people in the ‘hood than this man has.”
She also claimed without providing any evidence that the “street player” Mr. Trump has “flirted with gangsters” throughout his history as a businessman and politician.
“This country cannot tolerate another four years of him,” she said.

Waters has angered the populists within her party by suggesting that the big money should have more control over deciding who is the Democrat Party presidential nominee.
“You would have two, three, four at a time in Beverly Hills having dinners,” she said last week. “Some of our contributors who are very rich were holding, you know, fancy parties, trying to accommodate the request for donations and contributions. And so, you know, the conclusion, the thinking is that if we are supplying tremendous dollars to candidates, we ought to have more say.”
“A lot of people have come to the conclusion that it should not simply be Iowa and New Hampshire and certainly they are not reflective of the makeup of this country,” she added.
Previously, Waters has demanded that President Trump be incarcerated and subjected to cruel and unusual punishment because of Ukraine-gate and other “nothing burger” fake scandals.
“I’m calling on the GOP to stop Trump’s filthy talk of whistleblowers being spies & using mob language implying they should be killed,” Waters wrote in a tweet last year. “Impeachment is not good enough for Trump. He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement.”
“But for now, impeachment is the imperative,” she added.
From her words, it is clear that Waters has a delusional view of herself and her partisan crusade to destroy President Trump.
“Most people who have watched me over the past two years know that I am a responsible person who has talked about the Constitution, who has talked about the fact that this President does not respect the fact that (Russian President Vladimir) Putin is responsible for basically bugging our electoral system, hacking into the DNC. They know that I’ve been serious about this. I’ve had the courage to stand up when nobody else would stand with me,” Waters said.
Few lawmakers embody the excesses of the Washington D.C. swamp than Waters, who has lingered in Congress for almost three decades.
