Speaker Johnson Threatens to Punish Lawmaker Who Shared Video of Dems Waving Ukrainian Flags

Democrats waved Ukrainian flags and chanted, “Ukraine,” just moments after they approved Speaker Mike Johnson’s scheme give $61 billion to Ukraine and more than $9 billion to Hamas-controlled Gaza. It was part of the nearly $100 billion foreign aid package that provides no funding to secure our border.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) was one of the many Republicans who was disgusted by the scene and he posted video on social media. It was one of the most sickening moments in the brief history of Speaker Johnson’s tenure.

“This is the U.S. House of Representatives under the direction of Speaker Mike Johnson,” Massie wrote that day. “Democrats are celebrating his total capitulation with no victory for securing our border.”

Now, comes word that Speaker Johnson, who once claimed to be a conservative, is threatening to punish Congressman Massie.

“Instead of fining Democrats for waving flags, the House Sergeant at Arms just called and said I will be fined $500 if I don’t delete this video post,” Massie wrote on X. “Mike Johnson really wants to memory hole this betrayal of America.”

Even X owner Elon Musk was stunned – leading to this reply from Massie:

“There’s nothing that gives them the authority to demand I remove a video from my congressional account, but they are.

There is a fine in the rules for taking pictures/videos on the House floor, but they don’t know if I taped this, and democrats post from the floor frequently (example attached).

I believe to be fined, they have to serve you notice on the floor while it’s happening (that’s how I was fined for not wearing a mask).

Seems a bit creepy that the Sergeant at Arms would be on my X account three days later looking for an infraction. And how would deleting the video undo my alleged infraction of filming on the House floor? (It wouldn’t)

The uniparty is big mad at me for exposing them on several votes and for asking the Speaker to resign. The Speaker, his staff, or one of his allies in our conference is probably directing the Sergeant at Arms to do this.”

Rep. Thomas Massie

Shame on Speaker Johnson for bullying Congressman Massie. I’ve reached out to the congressman directly and urged him not to delete the video. I also told him I would be happy to pay any fines he might incur.
