Matt Gaetz under investigation for statutory rape.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) explained Tuesday that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has linked Fox News host Tucker Carlson to his scandals.

In his interview with Carlson, Gaetz noted that Carlson, his wife, Gaetz and his then-girlfriend had dinner together. That girlfriend was then approached by the Justice Department, he said.

"Basically what Matt Gaetz just did is he made Tucker Carlson a witness to the investigation now," said the California congressman. "I also note that Matt Gaetz has, in the past, spun wild tales about a variety of different subjects, so it's not surprising that he would spin this wild tale. But, again, the fact that someone, even if it's true, in March tried to extort him or his family to allegedly make this case go away, doesn't change the fact that there is a case. There is a very serious federal investigation opened under the Trump administration, and I'm a former prosecutor. They don't just do this out of nothing. There has to be a factual predicate, and the Department of Justice is going to be a whole team of federal investigators investigating Matt Gaetz. He's in deep trouble and that's why he needs to be removed from the House Judiciary Committee."

I love when they start flailing and trying to drag everyone else under the bus with them

With friends like Matt, who needs enemies?
Matt needs to learn how powerful the right to remain silent can be. The dumb fuck just pretty much admitted to everything being suggested.

The gop the last few years has been like watching that movie dumb and dumber over and over again.
Gaetz is saying he was being blackmailed and that the FBI was investigating it and that his father wore a wire for the FBI.

That's about 5 different lies made into one story.

His father is involved in an investigation, but it's not clear what because the justice department won't say. (They never comment on ongoing investigations.)

When asked for comments by the Washington Post and other reputable news sources on the record, crickets.

The only people Gaetz is talking to is Fox News and even they just released a statement distancing themselves from him.
