The swamp isn’t finished attacking Cawthorn after he claimed DC elites are doing cocaine and having orgy parties.
The House Ethics Committee launched an investigation into GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn (NC) over whether he may have had an “improper relationship” with a congressional staffer.
The committee, made up of both Democrats and Republicans, is also investigating Cawthorn for his possible ‘improper’ promotion of a cryptocurrency.
The House Ethics Committee is investigating controversial Rep. Madison Cawthorn for his possibly improper promotion of a cryptocurrency in which he may have had an undisclosed financial interest, the panel revealed Monday.
The committee is also investigating the North Carolina Republican over questions about whether he had an “improper relationship” with a person employed on his congressional staff, the panel said.
The Ethics Committee authorized the probe by a unanimous vote on May 11. But the panel only disclosed it six days after the 26-year-old congressman narrowly lost a GOP primary, denying him a nomination for a second term.
“We welcome the opportunity to prove that Congressman Cawthorn committed no wrongdoing and that he was falsely accused by partisan adversaries for political gain,” said Cawthorn’s chief of staff, Blake Harp, in response to the Ethics probe.
Harp said that the inquiry, which will be conducted by an investigative subcommittee assembled for that purpose, “is a formality.”
“Our office isn’t deterred in the slightest from completing the job the patriots of Western North Carolina sent us to Washington to accomplish,” Harp added.
Madison Cawthorn responded to the latest attack from the DC swamp.
Wow- I must still be a problem for the swamp!
They’re still coming after me!

Last week Madison Cawthorn lost a tight primary race in North Carolina after a relentless smear campaign.
Meanwhile, the House Ethics Committee refuses to investigate Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) even though she committed immigration fraud, perjured herself and married her own brother.
