I’m going to sign right away I have to go over it with my client and there’s always some pushback in negotiation,” Scheller told reporters following a hearing yesterday.

“[If] Mr. Greenberg accepts a plea, or plea agreement, that we want … it will show his sense of remorse — which he does have — a sense of acceptance of responsibility. No. 2, I think he’s uniquely situated,” Scheller added.

“When I said, ‘Matt Gaetz would be worried,’ I mean… let me tell you what I’m basing that on.

So, I mean, (it) wouldn’t be obvious to assume that he would be concerned, you know, some,” he said.

Greenberg faces dozens of charges,  including sex trafficking, stalking, bribery, and defrauding the Paycheck Protection Program. CBS News confirmed that the investigation into Greenberg spurred the investigation into Gaetz.
