A Reuters photographer was asked to leave the House Judiciary Committee’s hearing after allegedly taking pictures of documents on Thursday afternoon.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz addressed the situation when he sought recognition from Chairman Jerry Nadler on Thursday afternoon. “Before I make my point, during the break, a Reuters photographer, Josh Roberts, approached the dais and took pictures of the notes [on] the desks of several of my Democratic colleagues. We noticed that, announced it to staff,” Gaetz stated. “That photographer has been removed. I would just say, no member, Republican or Democrat, should be subject to that.”
