On the House floor, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) stated that an alleged hitman attempted to murder him and was stopped by Capitol Police and submitted to the Department of Justice for arrest, but Attorney General Merrick Garland refused to pursue him.
“I think someone may be trying to kill me and if they are successful, I would like my constituents and my family to know who stopped their arrest,” Rep Gaetz said Wednesday in a shocking testimony which the US media is completely ignoring.
Gaetz reported that Twitter user CIABOBISATYOURDOOR sent him a message reading: “Lookie here pal. I lived in Portland. Portland has ordered a hit on you. I accepted the contract. Have a good day.”
The suspect also tweeted, “I am going to wipe you off the surface of the Earth.”

“Following this tweet, the individual traveled to DC and the Capitol Police recommended his arrest,” Gaetz said. “The Department of Justice refused to do so.”

“It is just yet another example of the Department of Justice having a double standard,” Gaetz continued. “If my name weren’t Gaetz, if it were Omar or Tlaib, you bet this person would have been arrested. Because that’s what the Capitol Police recommended. But the Department of Justice doesn’t seem to care so much when it’s Republicans.”
The suspect’s Twitter, which has since been suspended, is filled with rambling and threatening messages.
Incidentally, the man claimed he was tortured by the CIA.
While the man may be mentally ill, he looks like he would serve as a great patsy.
It must be noted that this threat came just two weeks after Gaetz accused the government of Israel of being behind the $25 million extortion plot targeting his family.
“Novak…suggested he was personally involved in an effort to get $25 million out of Gaetz’s wealthy father.”https://t.co/9Xt3b2SMDJ
