It’s been a little while since we got any updates on what’s going on with the case against Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is suspected of sexually trafficking an underage girl and paying her for sexual favors via Venmo, which left a record of those transactions that prosecutors can easily follow.
Trump’s longtime “wingman,” Joel Greenberg pled guilty to six federal charges — including sex trafficking of a child, production of a false identification document, aggravated identity theft, wire fraud, stalking, and conspiracy — on May 17 and is now cooperating with federal investigators in the case against Gaetz.
So when can we expect to see Gaetz doing the perp walk in handcuffs as the FBI carries him away?
New information from former New York Assistant Attorney General Tristan Snell suggests that an indictment with Gaetz’s name on it is coming very soon — within “the next few weeks” — and has taken so long because the case against him is so voluminous.
Snell spoke with sources close to the Gaetz investigation and shared what he learned on Twitter, revealing that the “US Attorney’s Office is taking very strong positions with Gaetz and his counsel and is ready to indict Gaetz and others.”
Here’s the full tweet thread Snell posted earlier today:
One of the most interesting tidbits of new information from Snell is the mention he made of prosecutors possibly trying to flip Gaetz and get him to cooperate with their investigation. Who could be a bigger fish than the congressman? Some of the top officeholders in Florida? If so, who might those officials be? Just the thought must be giving some of them sleepless nights.
For now, we continue to wait for the Gaetz saga to play itself out. But it certainly sounds like things are progressing and we won’t be waiting much longer.
