This week, several news outlets reported that Rep. Matt Gaetz’s iPhone had been seized by the FBI late last year. Other reports have claimed that Gaetz shared nude photos with lawmakers on the House floor.
On Wednesday, a CNN reporter Annie Grayer attempted to get some answers from Gaetz about the reports, asking him if he had shared nude photos with other lawmakers and if the FBI had seized his phone. But Gaetz reportedly dodged the question by walking away in silence.
“I asked Rep. Matt Gaetz if he had spoken to the FBI, if the FBI had seized his phone, and if he shared nude photos on the House floor as CNN previously reported, and he didn’t answer any of them,” CNN’s Annie Grayer said in a tweet.
Another reporter, Lisa Mirando, also revealed that Gaetz had walked away from Grayer instead of acknowledging the questions.
Gaetz is reportedly being investigated by the Justice Department over whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him.
