Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz, who is currently being investigated for potential sex trafficking and prostitution crimes, continues to lose support from his Republican colleagues. House Minority Whip Steve Scalise suggested yesterday that Gaetz will be kicked off of his committee assignments if he is indicted over the scandal. Scalise told reporters, "it's hard to speculate on rumors, but if something really formal happened from Justice, we would of course react and take action." If Gaetz is eventually convicted, it will almost certainly mean the end of his days as a US congressman. Gaetz has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal and blamed the allegations on left-wing cancel culture. Most Republicans refuse to defend the congressman publicly at this point, including President Trump. Scalise’s statements yesterday were the latest sign that these allegations could actually end Gaetz’s political career and perhaps even put him in prison.
