How many FBI agents do you think it took to arrest the person who threatened to murder Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz?
Zero, silly, because Matt Gaetz is a GOP member and a real conservative. If Gaetz were a far-left Democrat, or any other kind of Democrat, the hitman would be arrested and kept without bail, like the 71-year-old man who was stopped while going to D.C. with plans to murder various Dems in Feb 2021. He is looking at a max ten-year sentence.
Congressman Matt Gaetz said on the House floor that someone threatened to murder him and the DOJ won’t arrest him, despite the Capitol Hill Police recommending that they do so.
“I thank you for yielding because I believe someone could be trying to murder me. And if they succeed, I would want my family and my constituents to understand who stopped their arrest,” Gaetz said.
He went on to report that he was sent a death threat by a man calling himself @CIABOBISATYOURDOOR on twitter.
Gaetz said the threat aloud: “‘Look here pal. I lived in the city of Portland. Portland has ordered a hit on you. I accepted this contract. Have a great day.’”
The supposed man reportedly went to Washington, D.C. That is when the Capitol Hill Police suggested the suspect be arrested, but the DOJ strangely thought otherwise.
“And on the eve of the AG testifying before the Judiciary Committee, it is another example of the DOJ having a double standard,” Gaetz stated further. “If my name were not Gaetz, if it were Tlaib or Omar, you bet this man would be arrested because like the Capitol Hill Police recommended. But the DOJ does not seem to care when it is Republicans.”

This isn’t Gaetz’s first death threat from a liberal wack job.
In Jan. of this year, a Wyoming man left a message for Republican Senator John Barrasso (from Wyo.), threatening Gaetz’s life before he was to make a speech in Liz Cheney’s home state, to speak against her for voting to impeach then-President Donald Trump.
Christopher Podlesnik, 51, left many different messages threatening to murder then-Congresswoman Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), Senator Barrasso, Congressman Gaetz, and Wyoming state Senator Anthony Bouchard, who is attempting to unseat Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney (Wyo.).
“I will see that Gaetz gets killed when he arrives,” was one message sent by Podelsnik.
