Matt Gaetz Gave Himself, Boebert, And Greene A Nickname – BIG Mistake

When he’s not busy (allegedly) chasing after underage girls and then paying them off via Venmo, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) also takes time to post the random rantings of his diseased mind on social media, which is a big mistake because those postings almost always come back to bite him right on the ass.

Such is the case with a tweet Gaetz sent out Thursday about himself and two of his closest (only?) friends in Congress, Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA):

As you’d expect, Twitter users had other suggestions that would be much more appropriate for the three GOPers:

Personally, I’m fond of calling them the Treason Posse, but I’d be just as happy to see them referred to by their inmate register numbers.

Florida Bar Suspends Matt Gaetz From Practicing Law

 

The bad news just keeps rolling in for embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is reportedly under investigation for sexually trafficking underage girls.

The Daily Beast reports that the Florida Bar Association has suspended Gatez from practicing law in his home state:

As of Wednesday, Gaetz had not paid the fees he owes to The Florida Bar, which regulates lawyers there, prompting the organization to deem him “delinquent” and “not eligible to practice law in Florida.”

As you might expect, rather than be forthright about not paying the required money, Joel Valdez, a spokesperson for Gaetz tried to spin the latest humiliation for the congressman:

“Congressman Gaetz is no longer actively engaged in the practice of law. He is focused on representing his constituents in Congress, not the courtroom.”

However, attorneys who spoke to Daily Beast reporter Jose Pagliery said that sounds like a load of bull:

That explanation may sound reasonable enough. But four attorneys who spoke to The Daily Beast noted that it is extremely rare for lawyers to do this. Instead, attorneys taking a step back from their legal duties normally pay a smaller $175 fee to remain “inactive” but still a “member in good standing.

“He clearly doesn’t take his law license very seriously when he doesn’t take the time to pay the $265 dues,” said Daniel Uhlfelder, a Santa Rosa Beach attorney who lives in Gaetz’s district. “He’s not a serious lawyer. He’s not a serious congressman. He’s not a serious person. This is one small but symbolic example of that.”

The real reason Gaetz isn’t paying his dues to the Bar Association is probably so he can avoid having his law license revoked as more evidence continues to come to light regarding his alleged sexual misconduct with minors, according to Cris Dosev, a real estate developer who ran against Gaetz in the GOP primary last year:

“It might be a calculated move. I think he’s preemptively trying to remove a level of scrutiny from the Bar.”

This has been the proverbial “week from hell” for Gaetz, with his former “wingman,” Seminole County, Florida, tax collector Joel Greenberg receiving a four month delay in his sentencing as he continues to cooperate with federal prosecutors as they investigate whether or not the congressman sexually exploited underage girls.

If convicted of sexually trafficking minors across state lines, Gaetz could be sentenced to life in prison.

Dem Congresswoman Throws MAJOR Shade At Matt Gaetz During Wednesday Hearing

At a hearing of the House Rules Committee on Wednesday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) got a painful reminder of the fact that he’s under investigation for sexually trafficking young girls.

The committee was meeting to discuss a criminal referral for Steve Bannon to be held in contempt of Congress after he refused to testify before the January 6 Select Committee.

Gaetz was present as a witness to defend Bannon and argue against holding him in contempt when Rep. Norma Torres (D-CA) hinted at the accusations that have been made against the Florida congressman.

Torres began by remarking:

“It is unfortunate that we have to look at the moral character of how people deny and try to try and twist the truth around what happened. People died.”

And then she brought the shade, making it clear what she thought about Gaetz and the charges against him by noting:

“This is not about someone being sexually assaulted or somebody paying to have sex with a young girl or somebody not protecting people that are under their jurisdiction. This is about our democracy.”

Ouch! That burn is going to leave a mark.

On Monday, Gaetz got more bad news when a federal judge agreed to delay the sentencing of his former “wingman,” Joel Greenberg for another four months because he’s providing so much information to prosecutors:

Federal prosecutors told the judge they needed more time due to the breadth of leads Greenberg has handed over and the “number of lines of investigations” investigators are pursuing.

“This is obviously not a normal situation,” U.S. attorney Roger Handberg told the judge. “Mr. Greenberg is a prolific criminal.”

“Mr. Greenberg was not alone,” Handberg added. “This is an unusual situation with a number of lines of investigation we are pursuing.”

Everywhere he turns, Gaetz is getting reminded of the fact that he could wind up spending the rest of his life in prison for his actions with a 17-year-old girl. It couldn’t possibly happen to a more deserving douchebag.

Latest Development In Legal Case Against Matt Gaetz Is ‘Something HUGE’: Former Prosecutor

On Monday, a federal judge granted yet another delay in the sentencing of former Seminole County, Florida, tax collector Joel Greenberg as he continues to cooperate with prosecutors investigating possible sexual trafficking by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who allegedly transported underage girls across state lines for the purpose of having sex with them.

ABC News reports:

Federal prosecutors told the judge they needed more time due to the breadth of leads Greenberg has handed over and the “number of lines of investigations” investigators are pursuing.

“This is obviously not a normal situation,” U.S. attorney Roger Handberg told the judge. “Mr. Greenberg is a prolific criminal.”

“Mr. Greenberg was not alone,” Handberg added. “This is an unusual situation with a number of lines of investigation we are pursuing.”

The new sentencing delay agreed to by the judge is four months, meaning Greenberg will remain free until March of next year.

The new delay led former New York State prosecutor Tristan Snell to remark, “There’s something HUGE here.”

Snell posted his thoughts on Twitter, noting:

“Update on Matt Gaetz — his buddy Joel Greenberg has had so much dirt that prosecutors have opened up entire new wings of their case. The investigation into financial crimes now includes help from Secret Service agents. There’s something HUGE here.”

“Did Greenberg have information on Matt Gaetz trying to buy himself a pardon from Donald Trump? Is that why the Secret Service is now involved in the investigation?”

Snell added that he now suspects Greenberg has given information on crimes beyond what the original indictment of Gaetz’s “wingman.”

“Greenberg appears to have given the feds information about crimes totally beyond the scope of the original indictment of Greenberg — so the entire matter has snowballed.

“And if they haven’t indicted Gaetz yet, it may be because the new material also implicates Gaetz.”

Wouldn’t it be interesting if Greenberg is providing information about other top officials in the Sunshine State? Just how high does this sex trafficking investigation go? Only time will tell.

Gaetz’s Friends Are Afraid To Text Him For Fear The FBI Is Monitoring His Communications: Report

The few friends that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has left are terrified to send him text messages or other forms of electronic communications because they assume the FBI is monitoring every move the embattled congressman makes.

Business Insider reports that the allegations that Gaetz may have sexually trafficked an underage girl have led many who know him to cut all ties:

Matt Gaetz’s friends think twice these days before texting the Florida Republican congressman. “They know that there’s a massive investigation going on,” one Gaetz friend told Insider. “That makes people hesitant to reach out.'”Another of Gaetz’s friends agreed, saying, “It’s a natural sort of reaction. No one wants to inject themselves into anything while there’s 16 dozen people looking into everything that comes into that phone.”

Back in April, Politico reported that federal agents had seized an iPhone belonging to Gaetz:

Gaetz’s predicament as the subject of a serious investigation became clearer this winter when federal agents executed a search warrant and seized his iPhone, according to interviews with three people who were told of the matter by Gaetz, who changed his phone number in late December. Around that time, the sources said, federal agents also seized his former girlfriend’s phone before she went into work in the morning. She declined comment.

Most of those who know Gaetz and the allegations against him are convinced it’s just a matter of time before he’s indicted, arrested, and put on trial on charges that could potentially send him to prison for the rest of his life:

Gaetz’s former classmates at William & Mary Law School recently received a save the date for their 15-year reunion next April. Some joked that Gaetz might attend with federal agents. His former law school classmates are “anticipating his indictment,” said one of his ex-classmates, said the report. For now, Florida politicos, Washington Republicans, and others who know Gaetz say they’re waiting to see what’s next in the legal drama, even though the headlines have died down. “Everybody’s kind of sitting back with popcorn,” said one Republican source who worked with Gaetz in Florida.
