Some bad things follow, according to Gaetz's Law, but even based on fresh audio recordings made in the days following the Capitol Riots, Gaetz's fellow Republicans seem to have enough of the controversial Florida congressman's "crazy" rhetoric, which they fear was putting people at jeopardy.

House Minority Leader described the American atmosphere as "too crazy" for people to confront the brutality of a few of his fellow Republicans, including the always-zany. But McCarthy saved the bulk of his criticism for Gaetz and Alabama's congressman.

In the eyes of G.O.P. leaders, Mr. Brooks addressed the rally on January 6 at the National Mall, which preceded the Capitol violence in an incendiary tone. After January 6, Mr. Gaetz attacked several Republicans who applauded Mr. Trump, including Representative Liz Cheney of Wyoming.

Those comments by Mr. Gaetz have slammed Mr. McCarthy and his colleagues in leadership, mainly the reference to Mrs. Cheney, who was already the subject of threats and public abuse from Mr. Trump's faction in the party due to her criticism of the defeated president.

McCarthy expressed his concern that Gaetz was "putting people in jeopardy," and that he didn't need to be doing it. We saw what people would do in the Capitol, you know, and these people came prepared with rope, with everything else."

In a conversation with a house Republican whip, the House Republican said Gaetz's verbal attacks in the wake of the January 6th insurrection might be "potentially unlawful."

Gaetz, even in situations where it's probably the best thing to do, has already revoked his comments about President Trump and me, stating that "Rep McCarthy and Rep. Scalise held positions they shared on sniveling calls with Liz Cheney, not us. This is the behavior of weak men, not leaders."
