An apology has been issued by the Republican Congressman following a tweet from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who asked all members to be careful about comments are made on social media because this kind of acts may have an effect on the work of House Committees.

Gaetz wrote on Twitter, “Speaker, I want to get the truth too. While it is important 2 create context around the testimony of liars like Michael Cohen, it was NOT my intent to threaten, as some believe I did. I’m deleting the tweet & I should have chosen words that better showed my intent. I’m sorry.”

Gaetz has since deleted the original tweet clearly targeted Cohen with words, “Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot…”

On Tuesday, Gaetz addressed some reporters over his Cohen tweet claiming that his statement was not witness tampering, published by The Hill, Washington, D.C based political newspaper.

Gaetz added, “We’re witness testing not witness tampering. And when witnesses come before Congress their truthfulness and veracity are in question and we have the opportunity to test them.”

Gaetz has been serving on the Budget, Armed Services, and Judiciary Committees since 2017; his comments targeting Cohen emerged after the former attorney for Mr. Trump turned Capitol Hill on Tuesday for the first in a series of hearings this week.

According to latest updates, on Tuesday, his testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee went off behind closed doors. Cohen’s highly-expected emergence before Congress comes had been delaying for several weeks.

However, Cohen will be testifying before the House Oversight Committee in an open Wednesday hearing, while a day after he is scheduled to be appearing on secret talks for a House Intelligence Committee interview.

Michael Cohen has been a lawyer for Donald Trump from 2006 until May 2018, was sentenced three years jail in December after convicting to campaign finance violations, lying to Congress and tax evasion. Cohen agreed to help prosecutors as part of a deal.

On another way, Cohen’s representative Lanny J. Davis condemned Gaetz’s tweet announcing it a shameful lie.
