Gaetz has also requested a criminal referral for Pelosi's potential violation of 18 U.S. Code § 2071 (Concealment, removal, or mutilation of documents).

Pelosi, still steaming after House Democrats' impeachment gambit only drove President Trump's approval ratings to all time highs, sat through Trump's Tuesday night address staring daggers into the back of Trump's head and mumbling to herself - only to test, pre-rip, and then tear up her copy of Trump's SOTU speech.

According to Gaetz, President Trump delivered remarks "which received overwhelming (and frequently bipartisan) support," that were an "uplifting celebration of the diversity of the American experience and the triumph of the American Spirit."

Pelosi's theatrics were "utterly dismissive of the President's achievements, and, more importantly, the achievements of the American People."

Gaetz argues that Pelosi's actions appear to violate clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII, and does not "reflect creditably on the House," or follow "the spirit and the letter of the Rules of the House."
