Rep. Louie Gohmert — a Texas Republican who has been walking around the Capitol without a mask — has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to multiple sources.

Gohmert was scheduled to fly to Texas on Wednesday morning with President Donald Trump and tested positive in a pre-screen at the White House. The eighth-term Republican told CNN last month that he was not wearing a mask because he was being tested regularly for the coronavirus.

"[I]f I get it," he told CNN in June, "you'll never see me without a mask."

Reps. Mario Diaz Balart (R-Fla.), Neal Dunn (R-Fla.), Morgan Griffith (R-Va.), Mike Kelly (R-Pa.), Ben McAdams (D-Utah) and Tom Rice (R-S.C.) have tested positive for the virus, along with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).

In May, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) turned down the administration's offer of rapid testing for the Capitol. Some lawmakers — mostly Republicans — decline to use face coverings while in the building.

Gohmert attended Tuesday's blockbuster House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General William Barr in person, where lawmakers were seated at some distance from one another.

But footage from before the hearing shows Gohmert and Barr walking together in close contact, with neither wearing a mask.

Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said Barr will be tested for coronavirus on Wednesday.

At one point in the hearing, Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) chastised several Republicans for taking off their masks, though Gohmert was not among those he scolded.

"I would remind Mr. Jordan, Mr. Biggs and Mr. Johnson to stop violating the rules of the committee,” Nadler said, referring to Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs and Louisiana Rep. Mike Johnson, three GOP lawmakers. “To stop violating the safety of the members of the committee. To stop holding themselves out as not caring by refusing to wear their masks.”

“Is it permissible to drink a sip of coffee?” one of the members asked.

“It is not permissible,” replied Nadler.

Connie Hair, Gohmert's chief of staff, declined comment.

Kyle Cheney, Josh Gerstein and Max Cohen contributed to this report.

If Jerry Nadler called for you to die would you find that behavior acceptable?

People need to stop hitting the floor in anguish at the prospect of “testing positive”. It’s better not to but it isn’t much of a story.
I'm picking up what you're putting down. Had a co-worker get a covid test because his mother in-law thought she was around someone who had. He tests positive but the other 6 members in his house test negative. He just stayed home with them for 3 weeks and everyone tested negative with the next test. Dude said he had no symptoms and thinks he received a false test.

Mask denier @replouiegohmert, refused a seat on Air Force One to #Texas today after testing positive for #COVID19, blames #masks.
"I can’t help but wonder if by keeping a mask on and keeping it in place, if I might have put some… of the virus on the mask and breathed it in." https://t.co/hjExP3BMMu

Pieces of shit are unavoidable highly subjective artifacts of a free society. He might think you are a piece of shit. If he did and he called for your death that would be wrong. If he is abusing his office he needs to be voted out or prosecuted and given a fair trial.

Do you really believe that wishing he dies and calling for his death to resolve what you see as an injustice is an appropriate thing to do in a free society? That is the behavior of the Antifa and BLM ilk. Don't be like them.

He's become as unglued as any skyscreamer he shits on. It's pretty repugnant, and he's been spouting worse and worse things lately.

Some localities are now threatening jail time for people who do not wear masks under the unproven science of stopping the spread of SARS-CoV-2. The contorted irony is that this same virus is being used as a pretext to release criminals from jails and prisons to stop an epidemic in confined areas.

Fear not, however, it’s all about following the science, we are told. This virus is so deadly that we must threaten you with jail time for not wearing a mask … while releasing rapists and child sex offenders from jail. In reality, in many neighborhoods you are more likely to die at the hands of violent criminals being released with coronavirus as the excuse rather than from the virus itself

Our science is becoming less and less reliable because free discourse among scientists is discouraged. As a scientist, if you say the politically wrong thing, you are shamed and demonized.

You mean like, coercion?

Let's take a trip down memory lane; this is way back in April...


SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS

There’s nothing like a crisis to bring clarity. The response of some mayors and governors to the coronavirus pandemic in recent days has made it clear they think they have unlimited and arbitrary power over their fellow citizens, that they can order them to do or not do just about anything under the guise of protecting public health.

We’ve now witnessed local and state governments issue decrees about what people can and cannot buy in stores, arrest parents playing with their children in public parks, yank people off public buses at random, remove basketball rims along with private property, ticket churchgoers, and in one case try—and fail—to chase down a lone runner on an empty beach.
