Rep. Matt Gaetz Invites Britney Spears To Testify Before Congress About Her Conservatorship
“You have been mistreated by America’s legal system. We want to help,” Gaetz wrote in a letter for Spears on June 30. “The United States Congress should hear your story and be inspired to bipartisan action. What happened to you should never happen to any other American.”
Gaetz said he and other Republican representatives, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R-Georgia), Rep. Burgess Owens (R-Utah) and Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Arizona), have followed her battle with the conservatorship.
“Britney Spears wants to tell her story,” Gaetz told right-wing television network OAN on June 30. “She’s not someone who wants to just crawl under a rug [and] pretend this didn’t happen. She wants accountability and justice, and I can think of no better place than the United States Congress to really tackle this problem and … bring people together from all sides of politics to solve it.”
In March, Gaetz and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wrote a letter to Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-New York) to request a hearing on Spears’ case.
