Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., asked the House Ethics Committee Tuesday to investigate a tweet from a Republican congressman about Michael Cohen ahead of his public testimony before Congress, a move that could prompt an official investigation.

After a committee investigation, the panel could eventually recommend the House vote to reprimand, censure or fine Gaetz, Bryson Morgan, a former investigative counsel for the House of Representatives Office of Congressional Ethics, told ABC News.

Mr. Morgan is Of Counsel in Caplin & Drysdale’s Political Law Group in Washington, D.C.
