This was started by Barr during the agent orange years, so they have not started that this is a partisan attack.
This did not take long. Let the lying continue!

Matt Gaetz Says Investigation of Him That Began When Bill Barr Was AG Is Merrick Garland’s Fault​


The sex-trafficking investigation of Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz began when Attorney General Bill Barr led the Department of Justice, but that did not stop the pro-Donald Trump Republican from pointing the finger at Attorney General Merrick Garland.

The three-term congressman is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice over allegations that he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him, according to The New York Times’ original report based on sources briefed on the probe.
The congressman has denied the allegations and has leveled counter-allegations that he and his family are victims of an extortion plot, a response that Gaetz teased out on Fox News host Tucker Carlson‘s show last week just after the bombshell story broke.

Gaetz offered a different line of attack in a Monday opinion piece for the Washington Examiner titled: “The swamp is out to drown me with false charges, but I’m not giving up.”

In the piece, Gaetz broadly defends his past sexual lifestyle without delving into specifics—and notes that he previously defended former Democratic representative Katie Hill when she was caught up in her own sex-based ethics scandal involving a staffer and her ex-husband (which ultimately resulted in her resignation).

Did he just throw someone under the bus trying to defend his pedophilia and sex trafficking?

Matt Gaetz is using sex-trafficking allegations to raise money, asking for donations to 'fight back against the fake news'

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/poli...cid=ansmsnnews11&li=BBnb7Kz&OCID=ansmsnnews11

Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida is trying to capitalize on the sex-trafficking investigation into him by complaining about the inquiry to raise money.

Last week, The New York Times reported that the GOP representative was facing an investigation into whether he had sex with a 17-year-old girl and paid for her travel, which could have violated federal sex-trafficking laws.

Gaetz has confirmed the existence of the DOJ investigation but has denied the allegations, giving several interviews in which he said the accusations were part of an extortion attempt. One of the men Gaetz accused of extortion, a former federal prosecutor, said Gaetz was just trying to distract from the investigation into his personal life.

On Tuesday, Gaetz mentioned the scandal in an attempt to rile up his supporters to donate to his campaign.

"The far-left New York Times has been publishing salacious allegations against me in an attempt to end my career fighting for the forgotten men and women of this country," Gaetz wrote in the email obtained by Talking Points Memo.

Video shows Trump meeting the man at the center of the Matt Gaetz sex-trafficking allegations​



Footage from 2019 has surfaced of former President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, being greeted at a Florida airport by the man at the center of the sex-trafficking allegations involving GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz.

A video posted in June 2019 by Ryan Gillespie, a journalist at the Orlando Sentinel, shows the then-president, who was in Orlando to launch his re-election bid, and Melania Trump disembarking from a plane and meeting Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Jason Pirozzolo on the airport tarmac.

The Justice Department is investigating whether Pirozzolo, a marijuana entrepreneur and hand surgeon, and Gaetz broke federal sex-trafficking laws during a trip to the Bahamas in 2018 or 2019, CBS News reported.

Sources told CBS News that Pirozzolo paid for the travel expenses, accommodation, and female escorts for those present on the Bahamas trip and said investigators are trying to determine whether the escorts were illegally trafficked across state lines for the purpose of sex with Gaetz. Neither man has been charged in connection with the investigation.

Embattled Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz is denied a meeting with Trump​


Rep. Matt Gaetz, who's facing a federal investigation into sex trafficking allegations, was recently denied a meeting with Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate as the ex-President and his allies continue to distance themselves from the Florida congressman.

Two people familiar with the matter said Gaetz tried to schedule a visit with Trump after it was first revealed that he was being investigated, but the request was rejected by aides close to the former President, who have urged Trump not to stick his neck out to defend Gaetz. Harlan Hill, a spokesman for Gaetz, said the congressman did not request a meeting with Trump this week.

"Rep. Gaetz was welcomed to Trump Doral this week and has not sought to meet with President Trump himself," Hill said in a statement to CNN, claiming that Gaetz has "been mostly relaxing with his fiancée this week during recess."

Women detail drug use, sex and payments after late-night parties with Gaetz and others
:o

https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/14/politics/gaetz-parties-women-drug-use-sex-payments/index.html

The first thing some of the women were asked to do when they got to the house parties in the gated community in suburban Orlando was to put away their cellphones, according to two women in attendance who spoke to CNN in recent days. The men inside, a who's who of local Republican officials that often included Rep. Matt Gaetz, did not want the night's activities documented.

The partygoers, at times dressed in formal wear from a political event they'd just left, mingled and shared drugs like cocaine and ecstasy. Some had sex.

Gaetz, the brash Republican, liked to discuss politics, said one of the women. He behaved like a "frat type of party boy," she said, sometimes taking pills she believed were recreational drugs.

Details of the parties, which have not been previously reported, were described to CNN by two women who attended several of them over the past few years. Both spoke on condition of anonymity.

Can't see the article. I do not want notifications.
She was once a love interest of Gaetz. Reportedly, they separated on bad terms. She was found dead in her apartment 48 hours after it was leaked she testified in front of a grand jury in New York. Reportedly, suicide is the cause of death. She also was an assistant for Desantis and removed from her position just days before her death.
