so Matt Gaetz, a piece of shit Florida congressman famous only for being a loyal Trump capo, is being investigated for sex trafficking related to a 17-yr-old (girl?*)... Gaetz denies wrong-doing & claims being extorted (...or blackmailed because he's guilty)

anyway... this article seems to sum up a lot of the current news on the weird ass story:

-----

The scandal swirling around Rep. Matt Gaetz took a stunning turn Wednesday with a report that a former Air Force intelligence official and a Florida lawyer tried to get the congressman’s dad to cough up $25 million that would be used to free American Bob Levinson from Iranian custody—and somehow release Gaetz from a federal sex-crimes investigation.

One odd fact among many: Levinson was declared dead last year.

The Washington Examiner obtained a document that was allegedly presented to Don Gaetz by the ex-military official, Bob Kent, that laid out the purported scheme. The site also obtained an email sent to Don Gaetz’s lawyer by federal prosecutors that suggests they were looking into whether a crime was under way.

The document dubbed “Project Homecoming” stipulated that Gaetz would deposit money for Levinson’s ransom in an account connected to the firm of Florida lawyer David McGee, who has represented the Levinson family for years.

McGee told The Daily Beast on Tuesday night, before the documents came to light, that claims of extortion were bogus and that Gaetz was trying to deflect from his own legal troubles. McGee did not respond to calls on Wednesday and Kent could not be reached for comment.

The bizarre chain of events began unraveling on Tuesday night with a report in The New York Times that federal prosecutors were investigating whether Gaetz (R-FL) had a relationship with a 17-year-old girl and paid for her to travel—which could amount to sex trafficking. Prosecutors did not confirm or deny the Times report.

Gaetz quickly hit back, saying cryptically that the allegation was part of a plan to extort $25 million from his family. In an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox show on Tuesday night, Gaetz named McGee as one of the parties in the scheme.

Then on Wednesday afternoon, Don Gaetz, a former Florida state senator worth hundreds of millions of dollars, told Politico that he wore a wire to a meeting with McGee and was supposed to wear one to an upcoming meeting with another person involved in the scheme, Stephen Alford—a convicted fraudster with ties to McGee.

The details of the scheme did not emerge until later Wednesday when Don Gaetz release the documents to the Examiner.

The elder Gaetz said that he got a text message on March 16 from Kent, who has claimed he put together a mission to rescue Levinson, a retired FBI agent, from Iran in 2018 that was foiled by the U.S. government.

“I would like to talk with you immediately about the current federal investigation, and the indictment that is about to filed against your son,” the message read.

“I have a plan that can make his future legal and political problems go away.”

The message went on to say that he had located Levinson in Iran and had two proof-of-life videos. If Don Gaetz would help secure Levinson’s release, the message said, his son would get credit and a presidential pardon.

The next day, according to Don Gaetz, he met with Kent and was given the “Project Homecoming” document, which opened with a description of the supposed FBI investigation of Matt Gaetz, referencing alleged photographs of the congressman and an unnamed election official in a “sexual orgy with underage prostitutes.”

The three-page letter, according to the Examiner, went on to say—with no corroboration—that a grand jury had been impaneled to hear evidence against Gaetz and others.

“In exchange for funds being arranged, and upon the release of Robert Levinson, Congressman Gaetz shall be given credit for facilitating the release of Mr. Levinson. Congressman Gaetz shall also be on the plane that returns Mr. Levinson to freedom, and shall be the person to “reunited” Mr. Levinson with his family and bring Mr. Levinson back to the United States.”

It went on to day that “in exchange for the funds being arranged, and upon the release of Mr. Levinson, the team that delivers Mr. Levinson to the President of The United States shall strongly advocate that President Biden issue a Presidential Pardon, or instruct the Department of Justice to terminate any and all investigations involving Congressman Gaetz.”

other info not mentioned is that the investigation of Gaetz started under Barr & that alleged extortionist mentions Biden as president so that extortion aspect far more recent apparently

*also... possibly unrelated, but lets have a full investigation of Nestor... the teen Cuban boy who was living with him secretly that he considers his adopted son even though he is not adopted & real father is still in his life


anyway, here's hoping Gaetz can eventually become featured in my "another Trump associate arrested" thread series

Gaetz claimed on Tucker last night that the extortionist was going to give details where to send payment “tomorrow”... so maybe he could’ve waited a day before publicly blasting out the extortion plot and that his father wearing a wire? or maybe he’s just lying... as would be expected from him

I am Senator Gaetz.

I did not have sexual relations with that 17 year old.

Btw I bought this phone on EBay and just guessed the password.

I will also have similar stances and typos as than previous true Habebe, because of racial justice.

there's such constant nonsense coming from their top-rated shows... it's shameful... but perhaps they're working on their Dominion defense & plan to claim no reasonable person would believe anything said on their whole network (the Sidney Powell defense... which Fox actually did successfully use when Tucker definitely defamed Karen McDougal)

EXCLUSIVE: 'His friend has been singing to the feds - that's why Matt is so freaked out.' Gaetz's arrest is imminent as jailed tax collector Joel Greenberg faces charges of having sex with same 17-year-old and 'making fake ID's with the congressman'
The investigation into Matt Gaetz is linked to his friendship with Joel Greenberg, a Florida tax collector currently in jail awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges
It emerged Tuesday that Gaetz is under investigation by the DOJ over allegedly having sex with a girl, 17, two years ago
Further allegations surfaced Thursday claiming Gaetz had paid for sex with women who Greenberg allegedly met on 'sugar daddy' websites
The 17-year-old girl at the center of the sex trafficking probe is the same girl Greenberg has accused of sex trafficking, say sources
New report Friday revealed Gaetz caught the attention of investigators after he was seen accompanying Greenberg during a late night visit to a tax office
Greenberg is charged with identity theft after allegedly making fake IDs
Gaetz, who has not been charged with any crimes, is expected to be indicted within the next few weeks

So Trump got sold out by the "loyal" Cohen, and now Gaetz is getting sold out by his "friend" Greenburg.

Such a trustworthy people, their kind.

That said who cares, she was 17.

Isn't the age of consent usually 16? In SC it varies 11-14-16 for sifferent situations.

A 30 Something guy banging a 17 year old hooker, clear consent.

Prostitution should be legal anyways.

"age of consent != sex trafficking."

Consensual sex and travel isn't trafficking in any manner except retarded federal legalese.

putting cigars in consenting interns is not illegal

whereas prostitution, sex-trafficking, illegal drugs, misuse of campaign funds are crimes

not sure he's implicated in the fake IDs


this is how 'sex trafficking' applies:

"Sex trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, obtaining, patronizing, or soliciting of a person for the purposes of a commercial sex act, in which the commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such an act has not attained 18 years of age"

(so being under 18 triggering it)

he's already admitted to paying for travel & hotel rooms for 'girlfriends' (who probably are all prostitutes)

I mean to me, none of that bothers me. But I'm a criminal.

Cigars in interns, today would probably be illegal somehow with the potus blah blah. Perjury however was illegal than and now.Was far worse than anything Trump did btw.

If Gaetz is found guilty, he probably wont make it next election.

perjury about a marital affair is not worse than Trump... Trump silenced all key witnesses (without years-long court fights) in his extortion of the Ukraine president (ones that theoretically would've testified in his favor if he was innocent)... he tried to silence -every- witness, but some did their duty (& were then retaliated on)

& he committed obstruction of justice repeatedly during Mueller

& he is the cause of all deaths, injuries & vandalism at the insurrection

& he is the cause of deaths for countless thousands from the pandemic (like Herman Cain)

& there's all the fraud he has committed in every business & aspect of his life

& he eats his steaks well-done & slathered in ketchup

But, I thought you said he was so retarded he couldnt possibly be responsible for say stashing away 1.6 Trill for Biden.

If he can't be given credit for that because he is too incompetent, how can you hold him responsible for the bad shit?

that seems a weird argument...

we know for a fact he silenced everyone on impeachment, he did it publicly (& was the only one w/ power to do so)... much of his obstruction also done publicly... he's clearly the main source for the misinformation of the insurrectionists (even if they got it from Trump's propagandists)... he's clearly who decided to be a terrible role model & spew constant misinformation on pandemic & hold the dumbest event(s) on the planet & the one who didn't want precautions (again repeatedly saying it himself)... & he would definitely at least be aware of the fraud in most of his businesses... like his upselling scam university or his fake 'Trump towers' that he knows he has put $0 into & is just to mislead investors... & he orders his own steaks (w/ waiters having to follow strict protocols in serving his lordship)


he's not responsible for stashing 1.6 trillion for Biden as why in the hell would he be? he didn't do his own job, why would he think about doing others jobs? plus... doing something to help others? no, he had no role in that, i'm completely confident in it
