Matt Gaetz: ‘Nothing More Dangerous’ Than ‘Weaponization’ Of DOJ

Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz during an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.

Florida Congressional Representative Matt Gaetz told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview that he believes “nothing is more dangerous right now than the weaponization of the Justice Department against people who show up at school board meetings,” as it paves the way for even broader targeting going forward.

“I’m on the judiciary committee, I think nothing is more dangerous right now than the weaponization of the Justice Department against people who show up at school board meetings because that paves the way for such a broad targeting, the likes of which we’ve never seen before,” Gaetz told Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow.

The congressman sat down with Marlow last week at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest in Phoenix, Arizona. Big League Politics also attended, covering an appearance by Kyle Rittenhouse during the conference.

Gaetz castigated do-nothing Republicans of the past and discussed his plans for action if the Republicans once again command a House majority after the 2022 midterms.

“I believe Republicans are going to re-take the majority, and I want to make sure we’re worthy of it, and that we have a plan and a strategy. So I would convert every committee in the Congress to an oversight committee — and I think every committee has an investigation they should be running,” he said.

“And this is a stark contrast to the Paul Ryan vision of a Republican majority with a Democrat president,” Gaetz continued, before further calling out the performative political theater displayed by ‘Paul Ryan Republicans.’

In the Ryan years, they would pass all these bills, they would get Obama to veto them, and then they would claim that as some sort of moral victory. And then when we got power, and we had Trump in the White House — they wouldn’t put the same bills on Trump’s desk.”

So, I don’t want to go through the performative legislative practice. Joe Biden’s not going to sign any bill of consequence that we’d pass, and the Senate wouldn’t take it up anyway. So why not use the committee process to expose the truth to the American people, and how these terrible choices the Biden administration is making is actually making their lives worse.

The Florida Congressman then shifted his attention to the current White House occupant.

“He is obviously a man in decline, and he is overseeing a nation in decline,” Gaetz said of Joe Biden.

“And managed American decline is really a greater threat than some precipitous drop off the cliff. It would probably be further along in cycling him out and cycling in Kamala Harris in if she wasn’t such an embarrassment,” the congressman added.

Gaetz concluded by saying that America is “still a country worth all the fight we have.”

“There’s nowhere to go, there’s no distant land somewhere to convert to our purpose if we fail,” he added. “And so while we take some slings and arrows, it’ll be worth it when we save this great country.”

Big League Politics has covered news pertaining to Gaetz numerous times in the past, also touching on allegations of sexual assault made against the Congressman by the DOJ, which appear to be phonier and phonier as the days go on.
