Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “Reuters Photographer Caught Taking Pictures of Documents on Desks During Break of Impeachment Debate”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

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.”
