Matt Gaetz Hilariously Trolls Linda Sanchez After Tweet Dunk Fail on Hearing Witness

As we previously reported, the House Weaponization Subcommittee hearing on FBI whistleblowers has produced a lot of must-watch moments, including FBI Special Agent Garret O’Boyle’s powerful testimony on how a weaponized and politicized FBI retaliated against him for speaking out, which not only punished him but his family also, leaving them homeless.


Another was when Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) was questioning FBI Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen, and had what she clearly thought was a “gotcha” on the Marine who told the committee about his two tours in Iraq, and who testified that the FBI was retaliating against him by suspending his security clearance and withholding his pay for questioning the official narratives surrounding the Capitol riot.

Sanchez, as my RedState colleague Bonchie noted in his write-up, had a printout of a tweet in her hand that was retweeted by someone with the name “Marcus Allen” and some numbers in their Twitter handle (@marcusa97050645). The tweet alleged that then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “staged January 6th, retweet if you agree.”

Before she asked him about the tweet itself, she asked Allen if that was his Twitter account. He repeatedly told her it wasn’t. She then proceeded to make a fool out of herself by in so many words saying, okay well even if it wasn’t you, do you agree with the sentiment?


I mean, the saying about how “the stupid, it burns” definitely applied in this situation. But instead of calling her out on it during the hearing – which in and of itself would have been highly amusing, Gaetz took to the Twitter machine to further embarrass Sanchez, finding a random Twitter account with the name “Linda Sanchez,” and saying that the Congresswoman “MUST answer” for the contents of it – which expressed a high degree of support for former President Donald Trump:

Gaetz then tagged her on the video clip that is going viral on Twitter of her questioning Allen about a tweet he didn’t write nor retweet.

The House Judiciary GOP also trolled Sanchez:

Relatedly, there are a LOT of “Linda Sanchez” Twitter accounts out there:


Inquring minds want to know if any or most of them belong to Rep. Sanchez? Presumably not, which to that I say that the others with the same name might want to put disclaimers in their Twitter bios so no one accidentally mistakes them for the foolish Gentle Lady from California who refuses to admit when she’s made a humiliating mistake.
