Protesters Interrupt Gaetz and Greene Press Conference in Washington

Protesters disrupted a press conference held by United States Representatives Matt Gaetz, Louie Gohmert, Paul Gosar, and Marjorie Taylor Greene outside the Department of Justice in Washington on Tuesday, July 27.

The Republican representatives said they held the press conference to protest the treatment of people arrested in connection to the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, and to announce that they are suing Speaker Nancy Pelosi over fines they received for not wearing masks on the House floor.

Footage from the scene shows demonstrators blowing a whistle and disrupting the event. The representatives’ security details shut down the press conference and moved them to a different location after protesters got behind the podium. Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful
