  • BREAKING Matt Gaetz SLAMS Washington swamp for trying to'drown him with false accusations

"I'm actually not. What's particularly gross is he's the only congressman to vote against an anti-sex trafficking bill that was on the floor a year ago". "Well, consider that a bridge too far for the power-hungry hypocrites".

Gaetz calls the sexual misconduct accusations against him "lies" with "exactly zero credible (or even non-credible) accusers willing to come forward by name and state on the public record that I behaved improperly toward them, in the manner by which Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ten accusers". "Go figure", he writes.

McCain said, "There have always been weird rumors about Matt Gaetz on Capitol Hill".

The U.S. Department of Justice is looking into Gaetz's relationship with a 17-year-old girl and whether he paid for her travel across state lines for sex, violating federal sex trafficking laws, multiple media outlets reported last week. He vehemently denies the claims.

The man Rep. Matt Gaetz has accused of trying to extort millions from his family-and blamed for recent allegations of sexual improprieties-admitted in a freakish interview Monday to asking the Florida Republican's dad to finance an worldwide plot to "rescue" an American citizen widely believed to be dead in Iran.

The congressman has denied the allegations and has leveled counter-allegations that he and his family are victims of an extortion plot, a response that Gaetz teased out on Fox News host Tucker Carlson's show last week just after the bombshell story broke.

"No, I am absolutely not resigning", he wrote Monday in one of his first public comments about the allegations.

Gaetz, who has not been charged with any crimes, denied the accusations Monday.

Gaetz's broadside defense against his critics and the DOJ investigation does not acknowledge the reported beginnings of the sex trafficking inquiry-or mention Barr whatsoever.

"I'm here this morning to state that nothing could be farther from the truth".

Nelson explained that the Federal Bureau of Investigation showed up at his home and interviewed him shortly after the allegations against Gaetz hit the news, and agents claimed media sources had contacted them asserting that Nelson left Gaetz's office because of the accusations surrounding the congressman.

Nelson left Gaetz's office in late October of past year, The New York Post reported, in what he called a "planned departure" in order to support "the military missions in a private capacity" in the Florida Panhandle. "Neither I nor any other member of Congressman Gaetz's staff had any knowledge of illegal activities".
