Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) filed an ethics complaint against Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) after Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) accused the former House Speaker of assaulting him on Capitol Hill Tuesday.
“It has come to my attention this morning, November 14, 2023, following a meeting of the House Republican Conference, Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) assaulted Representative Tim Burchett (R-TN) in the hallways of Capitol complex. This assault was witnessed by numerous people, including Claudia Grisales of NPR, who was interviewing Rep. Burchett at the time,” Gaetz wrote.
“For his part, Rep. Burchett has described the attack as a ‘sucker punch’ and ‘a clean shot to the kidney,’” he added.
