Sex Trafficking? Feds Probe Matt Gaetz

Sex Trafficking? Feds Probe Matt Gaetz



Florida Representative Matt Gaetz, a close ally of former President Donald Trump, is under investigation for allegations of sex trafficking while on a trip to the Bahamas. 

News reports say that Gaetz allegedly had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old who he paid to travel with him, which many federal laws say is illegal. Additionally, he and former Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg are also being investigated for allegedly paying women for sex.

It is illegal to pay someone under 18—whether it is money or something of value—to cross state lines and engage in sexual activities.

In response to the probe, a spokesperson for Gates’ office told CBS News, “The congressman has never paid for sex, nor has he had sex with an underage girl.”

“What began with blaring headlines about sex trafficking has now turned into a general phishing exercise about vacations and consensual relationships with adults,” the spokesperson added.



According to the New York Times, Gaetz claims the investigation into the “false sex allegations” is only used to extort him and his family for $25 million. He claimed that while he and his father were “wearing a wire” in cooperation with the FBI, some people approached them who said they could make the investigation “go away.”

The New York Times also reports that Gaetz has no plans to resign his House seat. He has also denied having a romantic relationship with a minor. “It is verifiably false that I have traveled with a 17-year-old woman,” he said.

On Monday, Gaetz wrote on The Washington Examiner, “Since I’m taking my turn under the gun, let me address the allegations against me directly. First, I have never, ever paid for sex. And second, I, as an adult man, have not slept with a 17-year-old.”

They went after Trump with false “trumped’ up accusations, they went after those around Trump with false accusations and charges, even members of the FBI lied to get charges brought against some; now, it’s Congressman Gaetz in their “cross hairs.” Just wait, any “strong” Republican will be a target with false accusations of some of the ugliest crimes. So the next question is…who’s next?

Deep State going after a Conservative to shut him down. This is how they attempt to control those that speak the TRUTH! We know the truth of the extortion. It is well documented by the Gates’ and the fbi. Now is the time to round up all the conspirators and HOT TAR and FEATHER them and run them out of the US. I’ll say it’s better than the alternative………….
Hang them by the neck publicly until they re DEAD!

The left will stoop to anything to get conservatives,! I think we should start investigating al these democraps and see what kind of kick backs they get into there offshore accounts from the countries they give tax payer moneys to! I’m sure that’s how they are be coming millionaires on there $ 185000 a year. There should be an audit of all them crooked liberals and some rhino conservative’s but no one seems to care about this????

Funny how the feds are going after one on hear say but won’t act on one with proof . Clinton was on the sex island 29 times and wore a red dress yet they won’t go after old Billie boy . But then he’s a delusional democrat and gaetz is a deplorable republican . That makes all the difference in the world as to who the feds go after

Stacy Dougherty
