Why will we soon be seeing Gaetz in handcuffs and doing the perp walk? Because a friend of his is telling everything he knows about the congressman in order to save his own ass:
“Rep Matt Gaetz is expected to be indicted within the next few weeks as former Florida official and friend Joel Greenberg is believed to have turned on the congressman in the sex trafficking investigation against him, a source close to the probe tells DailyMail.com.
“Greenberg, who was elected Seminole County Tax Collector in 2016, is currently in jail awaiting trial after being slapped with a string of charges last year including sex trafficking a minor between the age of 14 and 17.”
Gaetz is reportedly under investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for allegedly being involved in a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl whom he took across state lines and allegedly gave money to, which would open Gaetz up to a charge of sexual trafficking.
Greenberg is also under investigation for trafficking the same underage girl and is trying to cut a deal, talking with federal authorities and providing information that could prove critical in the case against Gaetz:
“The congressman impugned and damaged the reputation of someone who had nothing to do with this,’ the source told DailyMail.com.
“‘Gaetz is a sleaze-bag who used a professional with a sterling reputation to divert the attention on a sex investigation focused on him.
“‘Rest assured that Greenberg has been singing to the feds about his friend Matt Gaetz. That’s why Matt is so freaked out,’ the source added.”
Ironically, the DOJ’s investigation of Gaetz began during the Trump administration, when Bill Barr was still attorney general. That alone suggests there must be a boatload of evidence against the Florida Republican.
Don’t be surprised if Gaetz is indicted before the end of April. It would be a monumental fall from power for a man who once had the ear of Donald Trump.
