Matt Gaetz under investigation by DOJ?
https://www.businessinsider.com/justice-...old-2021-3

The New York Times reported today they're investigating whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old, and violated sexual trafficking laws.

Gaetz confirmed the existence of the investigation to Axios, adding, "The allegations against me are as searing as they are false. I believe that there are people at the Department of Justice who are trying to criminalize my sexual conduct, you know, when I was a single guy."

According to The Times, the department launched its investigation into Gaetz near the end of President Donald Trump's term, when Bill Barr was still attorney general. Senior Justice Department officials, including some Trump appointees, were briefed on the investigation given its high profile nature, the report said.

Gaetz's encounters with the 17-year-old girl reportedly took place in 2019, and investigators are said to be zeroing in on whether the Florida congressman paid for her to cross state lines, which would breach federal sex trafficking laws.

Gaetz told The Times the Justice Department had told his lawyers he was the subject — not the target — of the investigation related to Greenberg. A subject is someone whose conduct falls within the scope of an investigation, while a target is someone who investigators may believe they have enough evidence against to charge with a crime.

In a related (?) story earlier in the day, Gaetz said he might retire from Congress to take a job with News Max.

Here is what he has posted on twitter and telegram:

Quote:Over the past several weeks my family and I have been victims of an organized criminal extortion involving a former DOJ official seeking $25 million while threatening to smear my name. We have been cooperating with federal authorities in this matter...

...and my father has even been wearing a wire at the FBI’s direction to catch these criminals. The planted leak to the FBI tonight was intended to thwart that investigation. No part of the allegations against me are true, and the people pushing these lies are targets...

...of the ongoing extortion investigation. I demand the DOJ immediately release the tapes, made at their direction, which implicate their former colleague in crimes against me based on false allegations.

Same old tricks from the Prog Filth.

Truly despicable useless people.

I don't think you should be allowed to defend yourself.

That’s a very strange headline. Not exactly sure what it has to do with this story in the least, but good for him for suing Iran I guess?

Gaetz should probably stop giving interviews for awhile lol. That Tucker interview was pure batshit crazy. Even Tucker seemed to be tiptoeing away from Gaetz after it was over. Not a good sign.

RE: Matt Gaetz under investigation by DOJ?
And just to clarify, this alleged extortion plot by Gaetz has nothing much at all to do with the initial investigation of the charges involving the girl.

If someone in the DOJ or otherwise used information from an investigation to try to extort him, that's a separate matter and that person or persons needs to be thrown in jail. Additionally, any such scheme happened after the investigation began and more than not, proves that he actually did something really egregious.

Exactly. He’s trying to conflate two totally separate issues. Maybe he is being extorted by somebody. That does nothing to disprove these allegations that were being investigated by the Trump/Barr DOJ.

When he actually did address the allegations, came across pretty weak too. Accused of traveling across state lines with a 17 year old to have sex with her, and his defense was basically “I didn’t travel with any 17 year old!”. Kind of burying the lead there lol.

No.

He denies any and all of the accusations.

Is he lying? Dunno. But he’s saying none of it ever happened and some guy is trying to exhort him on *ahem* trumped up charges.

Who would that surprise?

If he’s an R? Guilty as alleged. If he’s an idiot son of Mario or Sloe*? It’ll all magically just disappear.



Y’all starting to figure this out yet?





Suckers

RE: Matt Gaetz under investigation by DOJ?
No, hopefully he didn’t do it and these allegations are untrue. If he did do it then hopefully he goes to prison.

Here’s one thing I can tell you. A lot of the things he is saying and which are being reported are verifiable. For example, the FBI will immediately know if his father was wearing a wire for them. They will also know if he was being extorted via text messages? The press will soon know all of that too. They will also know if he booked a plane ticket and/or a hotel room for anyone and the age of that person/those people.

I have no idea if this is true or not? However, there were some very specific allegations being leveled both ways and those are either going to be verified or proven false in fairly short order.

I think the key will be to watch how Fox News covers the story over the next 48-72 hours. I’m sure they are plugged into all of the main sources and if they really go to the wall for him here, that’s a good sign for him. It likely means that they have information that this is all baloney. Conversely, if they begin to walk away from him or turn on him, that’s obviously a really bad sign for Gaetz.

Finally, they could find out that there is veracity to these allegations but defend him anyway. If they do that this will be very messy because his innocence a d victimhood will become canon to Fox News’ many followers while everyone else will be screaming from the rooftops about the absurd hypocrisy of it all.

And the threat of 25MM needed to bury the allegations? Hence the wire?

All very odd.

Time for the mandatory 24-72 hour quarantine.

I don't see anybody saying the guys' guilty of anything.
