Haven’t seen it, but being establishment GOPish it wouldn’t surprise me, though what I have seen of him in the past I have considered him a pretty strong speaker.
So much weird and fishy stuff is around that. I honestly wonder if Matt Gaetz is partly being setting up like he said, though that don’t make him innocent
just not trustful of his “wingman” word being fully acurate or true either.
MIAMI — Matt Gaetz’s former girlfriend has told friends she’s worried that the woman who is key to the federal government’s sex-crimes investigation tried to get her to incriminate the Florida lawmaker on a recorded call.
The revelation raises the possibility that federal prosecutors have two top cooperating witnesses: the woman who was an alleged sex-trafficking victim when she was a minor and the Gaetz associate already indicted for that crime, former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg.
Until now, there were signs the alleged sex-trafficking victim was not cooperating with federal authorities. In August, prior to Greenberg’s sex-trafficking indictment, Greenberg said in a WhatsApp chat with another friend that he was paying for her attorney at the time and that she was resistant to cooperating with investigators.
Gaetz’s former girlfriend has played a bit role in the unfolding public drama — she is the woman who sent the lawmaker a nude video of her performing a hula hoop dance that he showed to other members of Congress.
But two of her friends, who declined to be identified publicly because of the sensational nature of the case, say she now suspects she was being set up when the alleged victim and another woman involved in the case called her to discuss the lawmaker in what she fears might have been a recorded conference call. The call took place sometime after Greenberg was indicted for the sex crime in August.
The alleged victim in the sex-trafficking case had turned 18 almost nine months before the Bahamas trip. But Gaetz has acknowledged he’s the subject of a federal investigation into whether he had improper involvement with her as a 17-year-old.
At least it maybe
not child sex trafficking now…
I do think it is possible that Joel Greenburg is trying to dump a lot of blame on Matt Gaetz for the stuff he was up to as a way to get leniency with federal authorities, perhaps even setting up Matt Gaetz in some way if the investigation had much earlier, though that would be getting a little ahead of myself. Regardless, this scenario still leaves him scummy and only maybe slightly less guilty.
Pizzagate, that’s a clever nickname, LOL, even if I still find the details around this too murky.
That was still horrible though.
