Rep. Rosendale Cosponsors Rep. Gaetz's Bill to Defund Special Counsel Jack Smith's Investigation Against President Trump

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Congressman Matt Rosendale (MT-02) cosponsored H.R. 4707, introduced by Rep. Matt Gaetz (FL-01). This legislation would prohibit federal funding for Special Counsel John “Jack” L. Smith’s Office following his political witch hunt against President Trump regarding January 6, 2021. 

“Biden’s Department of Injustice is a danger to our Republic, and this latest investigation is another example of the Left’s weaponization of the federal government,” said Rep. Rosendale.

“On January 6, 2021 – President Trump was the only one that asked for increased security around the Capitol. Yet how is it that Jack Smith is not launching an investigation against Nancy Pelosi or D.C. Mayor Bowser – both of whom refused the extra security?

“Equal justice under the law has to be more than a slogan; it must be a reality – which is why I am proud to support this effort by Rep. Gaetz to remind Biden and the Department of Injustice that Congress has the power of the purse, and we will use every tool available to us to end this weaponization against President Trump.”
