House Speaker Nancy Pelosi fired back at one of her Republican colleagues after the latter appeared to threaten now disbarred attorney Michael Cohen on Twitter.

A short time after Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., asked Cohen, who formerly worked as President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, if his wife knew about his extramarital affairs, Pelosi posted a tweet of her own that indicated the House Ethics Committee is watching.

"I encourage all members to be mindful that comments made on social media or in the press can adversely affect the ability of House committees to obtain the truthful and complete information necessary to fulfill their duties," Pelosi said in a statement.

"As a result, such statements can be construed as not reflecting credibility on the House, and the Committee on Ethics should vigilantly monitor these types of statements, which may not be protected by the speech or debate clause."

Cohen is on Capitol Hill this week to testify with three different committees. He answered questions behind closed doors in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, and he will do the same Thursday with the House Intelligence Committee. His testimony in front of the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday will be broadcast live.
