Former Texas Rep. Ron Paul’s name was on a list of speakers at the conservative House Freedom Caucus’ spring conference on Tuesday.
The Texas lawmaker was scheduled to speak to attendees in a closed-door session, but his remarks were leaked to the media and later removed.
Paul has a history of controversial statements on social media and has frequently called for the assassination of U.S. President Donald Trump.
The Freedom Caucus, which is a tea party-leaning bloc, wants to dismantle President Barack Obama’s healthcare law and replace it with a government-run health insurance plan.
Paul is one of three House Republicans who are members of the group.
