When information broke that Matt Gaetz was being investigated for intercourse trafficking, the Florida lawmaker went on the assault. That evening, he appeared on Tucker Carlson’s present to provide his aspect of the story.
That look, nevertheless, spectacularly backfired when Gaetz tried to attach the host to the costs in opposition to him. An irate Carlson mentioned after the spot, “That was one of many weirdest interviews I’ve ever performed.”
The Congressman additionally had a tough time discovering individuals who had been keen to defend him. Even Donald Trump, who Gaetz had been fiercely loyal too, was suggested by aides to remain mum on the topic.
Roger Stone, although, was keen to go on a few totally different applications and advocate for his fellow Floridian. However based on a brand new report from the Day by day Beast, “federal marketing campaign finance disclosures reveal Gaetz’s marketing campaign paid Stone’s Drake Ventures $5,000 for ‘strategic political consulting’ charges on March 24. It was the primary time the marketing campaign had ever made a cost to the agency.”
And Stone shortly went to work. On April third, he instructed Alex Jones, “He must go on offense, that is proper upfront in Stone’s Guidelines. The left-wing, non-journalist, fake-news media are probably the most vicious, malicious, dishonest those that I’ve ever come throughout. All of those tales which can be maligning Matt Gaetz right this moment are primarily based on leaks. The place is the meat? The place are the info? I don’t assume there are any info.”
The protection didn’t final lengthy, although. Only one week later, Stone was refusing to touch upon the matter when requested about Gaetz.
Roger Stone, certainly one of Matt Gaetz’s most distinguished supporters who per week in the past was telling the congressman to go on the assault and seem on cable information, has gone silent on the matter. Stone ignored two e-mail requests for touch upon why he’s now pretending Gaetz does not exist.
