Gaetz volunteered when Tucker Carlson requested him when the investigation began, “You already know, once more, I actually noticed this as a deeply troubling problem for my household on March sixteenth when folks have been, , speaking a couple of minor and that there have been photos of me with little one prostitutes. That’sat’s clearly false. There shall be no such photos as a result of no such factor occurred. However, actually, on March sixteenth was when this acquired going from the extortion standpoint.”
Rep. Gaetz went on to assert that he’s the actual sufferer, and at one level, introduced up that host Tucker Carlson was accused of a intercourse crime.
Gaetz rigorously selected his phrases when requested in regards to the 17-year-old lady and solely stated that he by no means took her throughout state traces. The age of consent in Florida is eighteen, so if he was doing one thing with a seventeen-year-old, he was breaking the legislation.
The interview was a dumpster fireplace, and no competent lawyer would have suggested Gaetz to go on the air and discuss this whereas the prison investigation is ongoing.
Gaetz behaved like a responsible one who was making an attempt to deflect and distract with the entire extortion storyline that seems to have been cooked up.
If the DOJ wanted extra leads, Matt Gaetz gave them some in an interview that was each self-incriminating and deranged.
