On December 19 of 2017, Florida Representative Matt Gaetz was the only member of Congress to vote against an anti-human trafficking bill, the only one.
Today that same Republican Congressman, Matt Gaetz, is being investigated by the Justice Department. According to The New York Times the allegation is that Gaetz had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him. This is sex trafficking of a minor.
Bill Barr was the Attorney General when this investigation began, but now it’s in the hands of Attorney General Merritt Garland.
When asked to comment Gaetz made the following statement:
“I have a suspicion that someone is trying to recategorize my generosity to ex-girlfriends as something more untoward.”
Is his “ex-girlfriend” the teen in question? No matter. Once the story broke he changed his strategy. No longer the generous ex-boyfriend, Gaetz is now the victim of an elaborate plot to extort him for something he didn’t do… Is that how extortion works?
Also today, Matt Gaetz says he may not run for reelection, but might instead join far-right Newsmax TV.
Pictured above with Roger Stone and Matt Gaetz is former Seminole tax collector Joel Greenberg, who is awaiting the start of his federal trial on stalking charges, unlawful use of means to identify another person, production of identification and false identification documents, aggravated identity theft, sex trafficking of a child, and violating the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.
There is a saying that comes to mind:
Is it possible these stories are related? I think so.
