When staffers begin quitting on a member of Congress who’s below felony and Ethics Committee investigation, it’s a signal that the writing is on the wall. The allegations and particulars of felony conduct are being revealed on a near-daily foundation, and Gaetz nonetheless hasn’t mounted any form of protection for himself.
It’s much more revealing that Republicans have supplied up no protection of Gaetz. His social gathering hasn’t stood by him. They haven’t tried to make him a persecuted trigger or elevate cash off of him. Republicans are leaving Gaetz to stew in his personal filth and criminality.
Fox Information isn’t operating to his protection. Trump has stayed quiet. It’s clear that Gaetz is prone to be indicted, and Republicans are distancing themselves as quick as they will.
