In an interview with Matt Gaetz on Sunday Morning Futures, Maria Bartiromo made the case for the RINO wing of the GOP. Bartiromo argued that McCarthy keeping his promises by refusing to fund the DOJ would be more problematic for Republicans than allowing the DOJ witch-hunt funding and Ukraine money to keep flowing. Gaetz has promised to vacate the chair if Speaker McCarthy fails to defund Jack Smith.
Gaetz called out Speaker McCarthy’s useless committees, saying, “It’s not enough to expose facts that get people angry and animated. You then have to follow those facts to a conclusion and to accountability. See, that is what Republicans are bad at.”
Gaetz went on to explain how now is the time for meaningful Congressional action, saying, “We [House Republicans] are great at having the hearings and putting on the performances, but if you are still going to underwrite Biden’s debt, which is what Kevin McCarthy did joining with Democrats on the debt limit deal, and if you are going to join up with Democrats to still fund the government, Merrick Garland will sit there and answer my tough questions, smirking at me, and guess what he goes back to the Justice Department and the coffers are full with money from the American taxpayer that gets turned against brave patriots in this country.”
The way to fund the government is not by doing it the same way Congress has since the mid-90s, where it's one up or down vote on the entire government all at once.

Gaetz’s interview was well received by his colleagues, with Congressman Bishop posting on X, “This is the best interview I have ever seen. The ad hominem attacks against
@RepMattGaetz will undoubtedly persist, but his every point was perfectly stated and utterly inarguable. Let’s see a rational rebuttal. Maria is usually one of the best, but she could only sputter.”

Gaetz has promised to vacate the chair if Speaker McCarthy fails to defund Jack Smith. September 30th is the deadline for Congress to pass a CR. Stay with National File for continuing coverage.
Maria Bartiromo is a class act.
She was called out live on air, spent the day considering what happened, and went about righting the situation.
If only the rest of the legacy media acted in such a way. Respect to Maria. pic.twitter.com/DLGkVGVajY
