Gaetz’s ‘Wingman’ Requests Sentencing Delay So He Can Provide More Incriminating Evidence

 

If Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz thought the growing case against him couldn’t possibly get any worse, he found out today that the person cooperating with the government — his so-called “wingman” — is seeking to delay his sentencing so that he can continue to provide information and evidence against Gaetz.

NBC’s Tom Winters noted that attorneys for Joel Greenberg made a filing and a request in federal court:

Joel Greenberg, a former associate of Rep. Matt Gaetz has asked to delay his sentencing citing his ongoing cooperation with investigators, court documents say, as the probe into whether or not Gaetz had sex with an underage girl continues. Allegations Gaetz has denied.

His attorney, Fritz Scheller, said Greenberg has been cooperating with prosecutors through a series of proffers and that cooperation won’t be done before his current sentencing date of November 18th. Prosecutors and Greenberg are asking for a sentencing date in March 2022.

When someone noted on Twitter that it seemed the goal by Greenberg was to delay the inevitable, Winter replied:

Greenberg pleaded guilty to six counts — sex trafficking of a child, production of a false document, aggravated identity theft, wire fraud, stalking, and conspiracy to commit an offense against the U.S. — in May. He is cooperating with federal prosecutors in the hope of getting a lighter sentence.

Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance said the report that Greenberg is still cooperating is a bad sign for Gaetz:

“This is not good news for Matt Gaetz.”

If Gaetz wasn’t already worried (and you can bet he is), today’s news from federal court is almost certain to send him into a full-fledged panic attack.

MTG Reveals Her Terrifying ‘Plans’ For The US If The GOP Wins The 2022 Election

Other than perhaps a few of her extreme right-wing colleagues in the House of Representatives — i.e. Lauren Boebert, Louie Gohmert — Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is one of the most unhinged and blatantly ignorant of all the Republicans who currently serve in Congress, and she regularly makes sure that we all know just how willfully ignorant and rabidly racist she is and always will be.

Greene is currently looking ahead to the 2022 midterm election, when the GOP has a chance to make some gains in the House and Senate, though considering the low quality of the candidates the Republicans are running, they could easily manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

The Georgia congresswoman has some ideas about what she wants to see happen if Republicans do happen to retake Congress next November, and she laid them out on Twitter, proving that not only is she a moron, she’s also a demented proto-fascist who believes authoritarian rule is the way to go in the United States as long as the right-wing fanatics she admires are the ones calling the shots and lining up those who disagree with them for extermination.

You can probably guess what Greene has at the top her list: Impeaching President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. You can expect Republicans to make that a priority if they manage to win next year. They feel they need to do it as payback for the two impeachments of their Lord and Savior, Donald Trump.

Here’s the full rundown from Greene, taken from her Twitter feed:

Just a few ideas to start with, huh? Turning the United States into a totalitarian state where you take revenge on anyone who disagrees with you.

However, there’s one problem with Greene’s extremist wish list: She forgot to mention the concentration camps and firing squads she has planned for all of us who disagree with her.

GOP Congressman Says ‘Little Girls’ Will Be ‘Raped And Killed’ If Afghan Refugees Are Allowed Into The US

Now that Republicans have come to the realization that they can’t stop the complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, they’ve decided they’ll shift gears and try to demonize the Afghan refugees who helped our troops and are now hoping to become American citizens.

Such is the case with Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA), who says Afghan refugees could wind up raping and killing “little girls” in the streets.

Perry was a guest on Greta Van Susteren’s “Full Court Press” show, Vice News reports, and he said he voted against the ALLIES Act which would expedite the visa applications for Afghan refugees and also increase the total number that would be allowed entry to the United States because:

“I don’t think it’s appropriate to bring poorly vetted people from an Islamic state to the United States of America. I represent the United States of America and American citizens, and it’s my job and I think it’s this Congress’s job to ensure their safety.”

Yep, the GOP’s blatant Islamophobia is back again, even though a Republican president, Donald Trump, was responsible for starting the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

If Afghan refugees are allowed into the country, Perry warned, there would be dire consequences:

“Even when we were talking about interpreters that work with the military, there was also plenty of evidence that they would turn on their Americans and actually be part of the complex or less-than-complex attacks against the very Americans they were working with. So I found this highly, highly questionable and I wanted to see it tightened up very much before I would sign my name onto it. I’m not going to be responsible for seeing our little girls raped and killed in the streets because we wanted to bring people that are poorly vetted into the United States.” 

Of course, what Perry didn’t mention and Van Susteren failed to remind him is that immigrants commit crimes at a much lower rate than native-born Americans.

According to a study from the University of Wisconsin at Madison:

“Compared to undocumented immigrants, U.S. citizens were twice as likely to be arrested for violent felonies in Texas from 2012 to 2018, two-and-a-half times more likely to be arrested for felony drug crimes, and over four times more likely to be arrested for felony property crimes, according to a study published by University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.”

Congressman Perry, like nearly every Republican, has no solutions to the problems which confront this country or the world. They just have lies and fear, which they use to keep their supporters in the dark.

Former DNC Chairman Warns: DeSantis Is ‘More Of A Lunatic’ Than Trump

Perhaps no Republican political figure in the country right now is more similar to failed, one-term former President Donald Trump than Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

You might think that would give DeSantis a leg up on his GOP counterparts, but it doesn’t, because the DeSantis has let the same issue that led to the downfall of his political idol — mishandling the COVID pandemic — send his own favorability ratings into a chasm which gets deeper with each day and every death from the deadly virus.

Former Democratic National Committee chairman and Vermont governor Howard Dean — who also happens to be a medical doctor — says DeSantis is worse than Trump, and he explained his rationale Friday on MSNBC, telling host Ari Melber:

“I am shocked by DeSantis. I never thought I would say this but I think he may be more of a lunatic than Trump ever was. Trump finally come around thinking the best thing he can do for his supporters is get them vaccinated. And DeSantis is completely out of touch with reality. I am not sure what he could possibly be thinking now when you got more than half the population that’s in school districts refusing to comply, long before the court said it was okay, more than half of the people in Florida’s school districts said no. We don’t care, shut up and go away. This guy is not – if you are the governor, you can’t do that.”

Dean then added:

“This guy’s not competent to serve in any capacity.

“This guy is putting their children’s lives at risk. We’re going to have dead kids all over Florida in these districts that are following DeSantis. It is outrageous. I have never seen any governor of either party ever behave like this. It’s almost as if he doesn’t give a damn who has to die as long as he gets reelected.”

Ron DeSantis is running for reelection in 2022, and the latest polls in Florida show he’s incredibly unpopular. If thousands of children die of COVID on his watch, don’t be surprised if he gets kicked to the curb by voters in the Sunshine State.

Devin Nunes Attacks President Biden For Observing A Moment Of Silence For Our Fallen Troops

For some time now, it’s been very clear that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) is a self-promoting sack of treasonous shit who will betray his own country in his demented loyalty to fellow traitors such as failed former President Donald Trump.

And yet, despite the many disgusting things Nunes and said and done since arriving in Congress, what he said Thursday — just hours after an attack on American troops in Kabul, Afghanistan — was a new level of crassness, even for him.

During an appearance on Newsmax, Nunes was asked about the terrorist attack which killed 13 U.S. service members by host Greg Kelly. Here’s what the congressman had to say:

“My guess is it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets any better. Let’s just hope and pray that — because that’s about what we’re down to now, are hopes and prayers.

“What you saw Biden do, that I’ve never seen a president do, a moment of silence with the press? I mean, what the hell is going on in this country?”

The moment Nunes was referring to is when President Joe Biden asked for a moment of silence for the lost service members:

Why would anyone have a problem with what the president did? If Trump had done that (and he never would have, because he’s the most immoral and irreligious man to ever be elected president) Nunes would have wet himself in delight and declared him the greatest American in history.

Nunes was slammed for his remarks:

Memo to Devin Nunes: Shut up, traitor.
