What in the world of blustery bloviating is Matt Gaetz suggesting?
The embattled Republican congressman from Florida is trying to suggest that investigations into whether he engaged in sex with an underage girl and got involved with a sex trafficking ring is an attack on his supporters.
The loudmouth Donald Trump acolyte tore a page out of the ex-POTUS’s playbook and said over the weekend that the probe into his alleged activity is aimed at others.
“They’re aren’t coming after me,” he bellowed to a crowd. “They’re coming after you.”
No, Matt. The feds are coming after you, as in they want to know what Matt Gaetz is doing when no one is looking.
This investigation might not be turning in Gaetz’s favor. A guy with whom he is friends, Joel Greenberg, is thought to be preparing to cop some sort of plea deal with the feds on a sex-trafficking rap. If he pleads, works out a lesser-sentence agreement and then rats out his buddy, Matt Gaetz … hmm. What happens then?
Meanwhile, Gaetz continues to bluster, bellow, blather his way deeper into the crapper.
I probably should just give way to the “presumption of innocence” principle to which all Americans are entitled. I am sorry to acknowledge that I just cannot go there. Not with this clown.
