NY Times Reporter Explains Why Matt Gaetz Hasn’t Yet Been Indicted For Sexual Trafficking

For a year now, federal prosecutors have been investigating Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz for allegedly transporting an underage girl across state lines and gave her money to have sex with him.

On Thursday, Gaetz’s so-called “wingman,” Joel Greenberg, was sentenced to 11 years in prison even though he cooperated with the Justice Department.

Why hasn’t Gaetz been charged? That was the question for New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt when he appeared on MSNBC and was asked by “Deadline: White House” host Nicolle Wallace:

“In documents filed in connection with Mr. Greenberg’s sentencing, the Justice Department said he, quote, ‘provided truthful and timely information that led to the charging of at least four of other people and provided substantial assistance on other matters that the government would address only in a sealed filing. Do you have any sense of what the other matters are, and if Mr. Greenberg is viewed as credible and witnessed Mr. Gaetz, quote, ‘having sex with the 17-year-old girl’? I believe it’s the same one and having evidence she was paid. Why Mr. Gaetz hasn’t been charged with the same crimes that Mr. Greenberg was sentenced for today?”

Schmidt explained:

“A high-profile matter is complicated for the Justice Department. The Justice Department, as you have seen, has moved very sort of methodically and, you know, at times, you know, according to the critics, slowly on the issues of politicians because they want to do a painstaking job to make sure they follow the evidence and the evidence is there to bring a case. It is — while we’re supposed to be treated equally under the law, it is more difficult to bring a prosecution against a high-profile politician, a member of Congress that allied himself so closely with Donald Trump. And I think that if the department were to bring a case and lose a case, it would have enormous consequences.”

Greenberg was a much easier case to prosecute, Schmidt continued:

“The decision to bring the charge in that sense against someone like Matt Gaetz is a much weightier decision than when the government had enormous amount of evidence against Joel Greenberg … and could get him to flip and cooperate. He had a lawyer who realized that the only pathway to reduce his sentence time was to cooperate. Greenberg was looking at up to three decades in prison for his crimes. He was sentenced to 11 years. That’s a significant departure. That was due to his cooperation.”

October Tweet Elon Musk Sent Regarding Kanye West Comes Back To Bite Him On The A*s

A couple of months ago, Kanye West made a disgusting comment on Twitter in which he suggested that he was ready to go “death con 3” on Jewish people.

Politico reported on the tweet at the time:

In a tweet sent late Saturday, Ye said he would soon go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,” according to internet archive records. That’s an apparent reference to the U.S. military readiness condition scale known as DEFCON.

West’s Twitter account was restricted after that posting, and Twitter CEO Elon Musk said he had spoken with the rapper.

Took it to heart, did he, Elon? Then perhaps the Tweeter-in-Chief can explain what Kanye told Alex Jones today on his show:

“Well, I see good things about Hitler, also. I love everyone. The Jewish people are not going to tell me, you know, you can love us and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography.”

Musk loves to say that he believes in “free speech” on social media and intends for Twitter to be the ultimate platform for that free discussion of ideas. And apparently that now includes anti-Semitism, blatant racism, hate speech, and lots of other disgusting expressions that are perfectly acceptable on Twitter.

So that means Musk has to hear what other Twitter users think about his counseling session with Kanye West, which clearly didn’t do a damn bit of good.

Racism WTF?!

Kanye West Tells Alex Jones ‘I Like Hitler…Nazis Did Good Things’

During a Thursday appearance on InfoWars, rapper Kanye West went full Nazi, telling host Alex Jones that he likes Hitler and that the Nazis “did good things.”

Jones tried to give West an opportunity to walk back his previous anti-Semitic comments, remarking:

“That’s right, you’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, you don’t deserve to be called that and demonized.”

But rather than take the chance Jones provided, West doubled down and happily went full Nazi.

Wearing a black mask that covered his entire head and face, West told Jones:

“Well, I see good things about Hitler, also. I love everyone. The Jewish people are not going to tell me, you know, you can love us and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography.”

West continued to laud Hitler and the Nazis.

“But this guy that invented highways and invented the very microphone that I use as a musician. You can’t say out loud that this person never did anything good and I’m done with that, I’m done with the classifications, and every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”

 

Every human being has value? No. Hitler had no value whatsoever. Neither did Josef Stalin or Pol Pot. Anyone who kills others humans and engages in outright genocide is worthless and only brings hatred and pain into the world.

West has also been hanging out with failed, one-term former president Donald Trump lately, paying a visit to the disgraced ex-president at his Mar-a-Lago estate recently. That alone should disqualify the Donald from ever holding elected office again.

Kanye West is a disgusting sack of shit. He deserves to be shunned by all of humanity.

Boehner’s Visit To The Capitol Sets Twitter Ablaze With Rumors He’s Angling To Be The Next House Speaker

On Wednesday, completely out of the blue, former Speaker of the House John Boehner showed up at the U.S. Capitol, setting off a chain reaction of rumors that he will be chosen as a compromise candidate to serve as the next Speaker of the House.

According to Mediaite:

Former House Speaker John Boehner walked the halls of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday night and sparked a flurry of speculation he could again lead a Republican majority.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is working to get to the 218 votes he needs to secure the speakership. But finding the votes is proving difficult. The GOP will begin the 118th Congress with a slim majority and little room for defectors for the California Republican.

According to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), he and two other conservative Republicans in the House have the votes they need to keep McCarthy from ever being Speaker.

While Boehner isn’t currently an elected member of Congress, the U.S. Constitution doesn’t specify that as a requirement to serve as Speaker.

Boehner’s appearance set off a wave of rumors, conspiracy theories, and other chatter on social media.

Capitol Insurrection Crime Donald Trump January 6

Former FBI Official: Oath Keepers Guilty Verdict Is Very Bad News For Donald Trump

On Tuesday, a federal jury in Washington, D.C. found Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and Kelly Meggs, who is also a member of the extreme right-wing group, guilty of seditious conspiracy in connection with the January 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The two men could be sentenced to as much as 20 years in prison.

According to a former top FBI official, the guilty verdict should be especially concerning to failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump.

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was asked by CNN host Kasie Hunt about what message is being sent to those who have not yet been indicted for the Capitol insurrection:

“Let me ask you about what we saw in the trial. Do you think the events of the last 24 hours have changed the calculation for the Justice Department in terms of whether or not to prosecute the former president, since they were able to secure this conviction?”

McCabe agreed the conviction does indeed turn up the heat on Trump and others:

“No question, in a couple of ways. The comments about the Oath Keeper verdict by the AG (Merrick Garland) is a little more than just a chest-pounding session. He is sending a message to the attorneys representing the other Oath Keepers, whose trial is coming up, and the Proud Boys and whoever might be in the wings later that we can do this. We can put on these complicated, high-stakes political cases and get verdicts. Rethink whether you want to cooperate, provide evidence and seek an easier path.”

He added:

“I think that’s a — it’s a very loud message to those folks who were in leadership positions, who may be being looked at for their role in organizing and instigating the attack. And first and foremost among those is, of course, the former president.”
