(PresidentialWire.com)- It’s confirmed. Rep. Matt Gaetz was the focus of a hit piece by The New York Times (R-FL).
According to the NY Times, the Florida congressman was being looked into for dating a 17-year-old woman. The NY Times’ claim was entirely untrue. The investigation is not aimed at Gaetz. Furthermore, none of the ladies he was seeing were minors.
It’s hardly surprising that Gaetz was targeted by the left, given his skill as a communicator and loyalty to Trump.
“The allegations were as scathing as they are inaccurate,” Rep. Gaetz said.
Gaetz said that a former Department of Justice employee tried to extort money from his family. On March 16th, his father received a text message requesting a meeting and requesting $25 million in exchange for not sharing awful accusations against Gaetz for sex trafficking. His dad was ordered to wear a wire because the FBI and Department of Justice were so concerned about it after his family went to the local FBI office.
He’s requested that the FBI and the Department of Justice make the audio recordings that would demonstrate his innocence public. These recordings were created with their instruction. These accusations are false and were made with the intent to harm my family. His father was scheduled to get in touch with this former Department of Justice officer so that detailed instructions could be given regarding the wiring of $4.5 million as a down payment on the bribe. The fact that The New York Times disclosed this information, defaming him and sabotaging the investigation, doesn’t seem to be a coincidence, in his opinion.
Federal authorities charged Stephen Alford in August 2021 with attempting to defraud US Representative Matt Gaetz’s father, Don Gaetz, of over $25 million.
Every media outlet that defamed Matt Gaetz should devote the same amount of time to expressing regret to Matt & his family for lying.
It has been clear from the beginning that everything was a deception and a plot to remove one of Congress’s most tenacious opponents.
According to court records, Stephen Alford, 62, was sentenced on Monday by U.S. District Judge Casey Rodgers to 63 months in prison plus three years of supervised release after entering a guilty plea to one count of wire fraud last year.
