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.

Science isn’t becoming less and less reliable. It’s science it doesn’t change. What’s less reliable is this idea that the demon fucker alien dna q whack jobs are supposed to be allowed at the table. Ancient aliens isn’t history class you conspiracy theory crazy people. If you listen to the non whacko scientists you’ll be just fine.

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.
:-):-):-):-):-)

When you make intelligent posts like this I give you some redemption and salvation from the other ones.

It's not discouraged at all. Peer review is still blind in almost every case. How does one shame and/or demonize someone when they don't know who they are?

Standing up and shouting "This is the cure"! Is antithetical to the scientific method. Science hasn't changed, but who people listen to has. Its a damn shame.

Do you think you are going to get a good discussion about climate change if the scientist who disagree with a certain political narrative are labeled "climate change deniers"?

Why should I believe climate change science if scientists are effectively not allowed to dissent on the issue?

Can you name any of these oppressed scientists who have been labeled?

If the "denier" comes forth with credible evidence, they will be treated just fine.
