Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) now says he is worried that the upcoming comission on the Capitol attack might send Republicans like him to prison.

Gaetz was among the Republicans who spread lies and disinformation ahead of the attack, alleging that President Joe Biden had stolen the election from Donald Trump.

“I think the entire purpose of the Jan. 6 committee is to create a series of criminal referrals to the Biden Justice Department,” Gaetz told the right-wing Newsmax TV. “And I think Kevin McCarthy is the lead target, unfortunately.”

It is highly unlikely that top Republicans will face charges based on the committee’s work. But the investigation could expose connections between Republican leaders and the attackers.

“Gaetz went on to call for McCarthy to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) from their respective committees because they have accepted Pelosi’s invitation to participate in the Jan. 6 committee,” Raw Story reported.

Republicans have attempted to sabotage the investigation, but Speaker Nancy Pelosi has rebuffed and ignored these attempts and the committee is set to begin work soon.
