News has been exploding across media outlets over Rep. Matt Gaetz, the MAGA congressman that has found himself at the center of a sex trafficking scandal. Gaetz has tried to defend himself amid the allegations of the Florida Republican having sex with a 17-year-old girl by saying that he was the target of an extortion plot. And now, CNN reports on another twist to this unfolding scandal.
“Sources say Gaetz gained a reputation in Congress over his relationships with women and even showed fellow lawmakers some nude photos of women he said he slept with,” Wolf Blitzer said. “Lauren Fox is on this part of the story. What are you learning about these photos?”
“We should be very clear from the top, this is a separate issue than the DOJ investigation that is ongoing right now,” Fox said. “When Matt Gaetz was a new member of Congress, he earned a reputation quickly of being a close ally of former President Trump’s. He liked to be in the limelight of the media. He also, according to multiple sources CNN spoke with, behind the scenes likes to show his colleagues photos and brag about sexual exploits he had with women.”
“Three sources told CNN this was something that Gaetz did, and two of these individuals had seen these images firsthand,” said Fox. “One of these individuals said they saw this image, Matt Gaetz shared this image with them, a nude photograph on the House floor. One said they had seen an image Gaetz shared with them just off the House floor, but still at the U.S. Capitol. CNN reached out to Gaetz for comment. We have not heard any response from either Gaetz or his office. Obviously, this is a significant development given what is going on with the DOJ investigation.”
CNN also reports that sources, “including two people directly shown the material, said Gaetz displayed the images of women on his phone and talked about having sex with them. One of the videos showed a naked woman with a hula hoop.”
“It was a point of pride,” one of the sources said of Gaetz.
At the moment, Gaetz reportedly is having difficulty landing a job with conservative media outlets. The Trump-friendly, bootlicking Republican has decided to make an early exit from Congress. And who knows, he might not have much of a future with women, too, although he is engaged. For now.
