Politicians who lie to Congress are going to have a lot more to answer for if a bill proposed by Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz gets put into action.
Gaetz has submitted legislation that would FAIRLY punish those who lie to Congress, it specifically targets people like Hillary Clinton, former FBI Director James Comey and former Attorney General Eric Holder to name just a few.
Gaetz has accused the system of bias, as it doggedly pursues Trump allies, like Roger Stone, while many Democrats face zero repercussions.
“Unfortunately, it often seems that we have a two-tiered justice system at work; certain people have the book thrown at them, while others face no consequences at all for their behavior,” Gaetz said in reporting by the Washington Examiner. “This is unfair and wrong, and I hope to correct this with my resolution.”
The resolution, titled “Justice for All,” is designed to ensure that Congressional liars are “prosecuted equitably.”
Here’s hoping the resolution passes and that accountability will finally become a bipartisan issue.
