Back in late March, Axios published a story about Matt Gaetz retiring from congress and working in Conservative media. The story seemed odd at the time. The Florida Rep. was seemingly on the rise in the party.
When news broke that Matt Gaetz was being investigated for sex trafficking, the Florida lawmaker went on the attack. That night, he appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show to give his side of the story.
It’s been a bit more than a week since the Matt Gaetz sex scandal began. Since then, it has seemed like the Florida congressman has made the wrong move at nearly every turn.
It also seems like Gaetz was expecting more support from the members of his own party. But nearly every fellow GOP lawmaker has remained silent, including Donald Trump.
On Tuesday night, the New York Times revealed that Matt Gaetz is being investigated by the Department of Justice. And the possible charges are quite severe. The Florida congressman is accused of being in a sexual relationship with a 17 year old and taking her across state lines. This opens up the possibility of a sex trafficking charge.
When people are accused of a serious crime, lawyers typically encourage them to stay silent about the matter. On Tuesday night, it was revealed that Matt Gaetz is being investigated for serious sex trafficking charges.
It has been a wild day for Florida Representative Matt Gaetz. Earlier in they day, many were surprised by rumors that the Trump sycophant could be leaving his post to go serve as a political commentator on Newsmax.
When Donald Trump was president, the lawmakers most willing to by sycophantic to him became Republican starts. People like Jim Jordan, Paul Gosar and Louie Gohmert earned notoriety by sticking close to Trump.
