The Arizona Democrat announced he would enter quarantine earlier this week, shortly after Gohmert (R-Texas) revealed his positive test on Wednesday.

National Guard who testified that he witnessed "deeply disturbing" events only appeared for political reasons.

Gohmert wore a mask during that hearing except while questioning the witnesses, as mandated by committee rules, despite frequently refusing to do so while on Capitol Hill.

He said he had three “brief interactions” with Gohmert but “the Attending Physician believes those encounters did not meet the standard of risk to merit a quarantine.”
