Dem Congressman Falsely Claims To CNN Sutherland Springs Gunman Is Sam Hyde — A Famous Internet Hoax (VIDEO)

Even the highest ranking U.S. lawmakers fall victim to internet hoaxes. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez told CNN that the gunman behind the Sutherland Springs Church shooting is ‘Sam Hyde.’ 

“A TX Congressman just told CNN that the church shooter was named Sam Hyde. That’s a joke put out by 4Chan every time there’s a shooting,” tweeted Forbes reporter JJ MacNab.

Below is a photo of “Sam Hyde.” It is not known if this is an actual photo of Hyde.
