The House Judiciary Committee ejected Reuters photographer Josh Roberts from yesterday’s hearing after CNN’s live feed caught him photographing documents on desks during a break.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz addressed the situation when he sought recognition from Chairman Jerry Nadler on Thursday afternoon. “Before I make my point, during the break, a Reuters photographer, Josh Roberts, approached the dais and took pictures of the notes [on] the desks of several of my Democratic colleagues. We noticed that, announced it to staff,” Gaetz stated. “That photographer has been removed. I would just say, no member, Republican or Democrat, should be subject to that.”
He added, “We ought to have the opportunity to take our notes, participate in debate, and have a fair discussion substantively, though.”

Jesse Lee from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s office explained the photographer took pictures of a Democrat’s desk. Roberts photographed the Bible and a few other books.
