    Matt Gaetz (R) under investigation for child sex trafficking .

    Invetigation launched by Bill Barrs D.O.J by the way.
    Matt Gaetz claims 'extortion' amid reported investigation into relationship with teenage girl
    Authorities reportedly investigating if Republican congressman, 38, violated sex trafficking laws and had inappropriate relationship

    The prominent Republican congressman Matt Gaetz’s reported relationship with a 17-year-old girl remained under scrutiny on Wednesday, despite his insistence in an appearance on Fox News that the allegation was “verifiably false”.




    The Florida politician, a close ally of Donald Trump, claimed during the Tuesday night interview that he was the victim of an extortion plot by a former justice department official, and questioned the motivation behind Tuesday’s original reporting by the New York Times.


    Gaetz, 38, claimed his lawyers had been informed that he was the subject of an FBI inquiry “regarding sexual conduct with women” and that the official was attempting to extort $25m from his family “in exchange for a commitment that he could make this investigation go away”.


    On Wednesday, David McGee, the former justice department employee named by Gaetz, now a lawyer in Pensacola, Florida, told the Washington Post that the politician’s claims of an extortion plot were “completely false”.


    “This is a blatant attempt to distract from the fact he’s under investigation for sex trafficking of minors,” McGee, formerly an attorney in the department’s organized crime taskforce, said.


    “I have no connection with that case at all, other than one of a thousand people who have heard the rumors.”


    Meanwhile, the Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Gaetz’s appearance on his show “was one of the weirdest interviews I’ve ever conducted.”


    “I don’t think that clarified much,” Carlson told his viewers. “But it certainly showed this is a deeply interesting story, and we will be following it. Don’t quite understand it, but we will bring you more when we find out.”


    According to the New York Times, Gaetz was under investigation by the justice department to determine whether he violated federal sex trafficking laws and had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a 17-year-old, and whether he paid her to travel with him.


    The investigation was launched in the final months of the Trump administration under attorney general William Barr, the newspaper said, and was part of a broader investigation into a Republican party official and political ally in Florida, Joel Greenberg, indicted last summer on charges of sex trafficking of a child and financially supporting people in exchange for sex, including at least one underage girl.


    After the Times published its story, Gaetz, who was photographed visiting the Trump White House with Greenberg in 2019, took to Twitter to maintain his innocence and accuse the justice department official of attempting to smear his name. Gaetz said his family was cooperating with federal authorities investigating his extortion claims.


    Adding to the intrigue was a story reported by Axios earlier on Tuesday, just hours before the Times published its allegations, that Gaetz told associates he was considering resigning his seat in Congress to take a job with the rightwing media outlet Newsmax.


    An FBI spokesperson in Jacksonville, Florida, told the Guardian in a statement Wednesday that the agency “declines to confirm nor deny the existence or status of an investigation” and referred inquiries to the justice department.


    The justice department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Gaetz showed nude photos of women he said he'd slept with to lawmakers, sources tell CNN

    (CNN)Rep. Matt Gaetz, the Florida Republican being investigated by the Justice Department over sex trafficking allegations, made a name for himself when he arrived on Capitol Hill as a conservative firebrand on TV and staunch defender of then-President Donald Trump. Behind the scenes, Gaetz gained a reputation in Congress over his relationships with women and bragging about his sexual escapades to his colleagues, multiple sources told CNN.


    Gaetz allegedly showed off to other lawmakers photos and videos of nude women he said he had slept with, the sources told CNN, including while on the House floor. The sources, including two people directly shown the material, said Gaetz displayed the images of women on his phone and talked about having sex with them. One of the videos showed a naked woman with a hula hoop, according to one source.
    "It was a point of pride," one of the sources said of Gaetz.

    Gaetz is one of those repulsive politicians taking democracy backwards. I hope he gets put behind bars to improve the country.

    The Times story points out that Gaetz was the lone U.S. representative in 2017 to vote against a bipartisan bill to provide more funding to combat sex trafficking. At the time, Gaetz said his constituents did not want him to give more power to the federal government.


    Riiiiiiiiiiight.

    Those allegations only apply to Democrats, not Republicans. The moment Republicans are accused of wrong doing, it's fake news.

    Same shitbags. Why anyone wants to hold the position that their political party is better or more moral than the other is beyond me considering the filth is pervasive from the top to bottom, left to right.

    You need to change the "IS" in your reply to "perhaps was" which though arguable, it is possible. But we are not talking about "Was" we are talking about "Is" .
    Do you have any "IS" ??

    It appears he isn’t being accused of child sex trafficking at all. Actually nobody knows what the hell he's actually “accused” of.
