The best thing anyone who is under investigation for a federal crime can do is keep their head down and mouth shut, especially if they’re facing the prospect of spending the rest of their life in prison.
So it’s safe to say that attorneys for Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) are probably pulling out their hair after the Florida congressman gave an extensive interview to Pensacola television station WEAR in which he commented on the accusations of sexual trafficking that have been leveled against him.
Regarding a report that he had traveled to the Bahamas with a lobbyist and his connections to Jeffrey Greenberg, the former Florida tax collector who has pled guilty to sex trafficking and other felonies, Gaetz remarked:
Gaetz also insisted that he’s no longer friends with Greenberg, who is cooperating with prosecutors investigating the congressman:
Every word that Gaetz said during that interview can now be used against him in a court of law to impeach his credibility and prove that he has absolutely no regrets about what he’s allegedly done with underage girls.
Matt Gaetz just made it even more certain that he’s going to be charged, convicted, and sent away for a very long time.
