Matt Gaetz accuses the IRS of 'gearing up for war'
United States Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) claimed on his Rumble channel on Monday that the Internal Revenue Service is inflaming the risks of a second civil war. Gaetz also accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) of instigating a "nuclear war in Asia" following her recent trip to Taiwan.
"Chaos at the IRS where they are gearing up for something, like, is the IRS gearing up for war in our country? Is Nancy Pelosi trying to start a nuclear war in Asia? Is there an effort by the national security state to stoke violence and a civil war here at home? We certainly hope not," Gaetz said.
Gaetz, a staunch defender of former President Donald Trump, shared his conspiracy theory a week after the Federal Bureau of Investigation executed a search warrant at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, which triggered outrage among right-wing politicians and pundits. On Thursday it was revealed that top-secret documents pertaining to nuclear weapons were suspected of being stored at Mar-a-Lago and that Trump is under investigation for possible violations of the Espionage Act.
