Former Rep. Katie Hill is out of Congress after resigning amid a sex scandal involving a former campaign aide and her estranged husband, but the California Democrat shows no signs she is leaving public life.

Hill, 32, quit the House Nov. 3 — ten months into her first term representing a northern Los Angeles County district — following a scandal that also included the leaking of nude photos of her. Less than two weeks into private life, she’s emerged as a vocal voice on public affairs, whether chastising former Republican colleagues or commenting on the politics of a shooting at her former high school that left two people dead.

Through a series of tweets Wednesday, during an impeachment hearing, Hill trolled House Republicans, including top House Intelligence Committee GOP member Devin Nunes, Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York, Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, and Rep. Paul Gosar of Arizona. Earlier in the day on Twitter, Gosar raised questions about circumstances surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire and convicted sex offender arrested for sex trafficking.
