Gilbert Says Gohmert’s Actions Raise More Questions About His Time In Ukraine
TYLER, Texas–Louie Gohmert’s antics on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives during impeachment proceedings today further embarrassed East Texas and his constituents, and raises additional questions about his time in Ukraine, his opponent, Hank Gilbert (D-Tyler), said Wednesday afternoon.
“Louie Gohmert spit out so much Russian propaganda in his two minute speech C-SPAN might as well have switched to covering the Russian State Duma,” said Gilbert.
Further, Gilbert said, Gohmert’s continuing to spout off about the Ukraine should make voters wonder about his personal ties to the Ukraine.
“Gohmert was in the Ukraine for several days during the key dates in the impeachment timeline,” said Gilbert. “To date, he hasn’t answered for his own time in the Ukraine,” Gilbert continued.
“Once again, he’s embarrassed his district in front of millions of people. I hope people from around the country who see him on TV don’t think that all East Texans are that unbalanced and full of lies,” Gilbert continued.
