Ethics panel declines to investigate Rep. Paul Gosar over claim he sparked Jan. 6 riot

Source: Arizona Republic

The House Ethics Committee has declined to investigate whether Rep. Paul Gosar helped instigate the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, as a Democratic colleague had suggested in her request for a probe.

Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., told Gosar in a private letter dated June 11 that Gosar publicly shared Tuesday that the Ethics Committee he chairs would not be forming a special panel to look into the matter.

Gosar, R-Ariz., claimed vindication over the allegation by Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., which he had previously described as "devoid of reality."

"This patently baseless claim attempted to conflate political disagreements with ethics," Gosar said in a statement on Tuesday. "The House Committee on Ethics should not be politicized for partisan purposes."

5. These people...

"The House Committee on Ethics should not be politicized for partisan purposes."

What he meant to say is that it shouldn't be politicized when it's looking at him or any other republican.

8. There's going to be a full-blown, in depth investigation into the insurrection and riot.....

....it would be counter productive to have side investigations going on at the same time.

Note the letter merely says the Ethics Committee won't be investigating Gosar, it doesn't vindicate him. His involvement will be fully investigated by the House Commission.

10. Exactly. "...would not be forming a special panel..."

Doesn't say Ethics Committee won't be involved.

9. I think this is a cunning solution.

Some of those who are going to jail know that he did. He gets away with it, they don't.

11. He's not going to get away with it. Deutch and the Democrats just don't want an ethics....

....investigation to interfere with the overriding investigation of the entire involvement of republicans and trump in the insurrection and riot of January 6.
