Retiring South Florida Republican Congressman Tom Rooney disputes President Trump’s claim that the FBI planted an informant in his 2016 presidential campaign. Rooney, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said the allegations are “not true” and that continuing to make the claim creates chaos.
Rooney isn’t the only Florida Congressman weighing in on the issue. Representative Matt Gaetz, a Northwest Florida Republican, blasted Speaker Ryan during an appearance on Fox Business Network. Gaetz also called the Speaker a supporter of the so-called deep state.
