Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Sunday that it was “up to the Republicans to take responsibility for that” when asked if Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) should resign from Congress as he faces investigations from the Department of Justice and the House Ethics Committee over allegations of having sex with a minor and sex trafficking.
