Matt Gaetz investigation

Florida Republican Representative Matt Gaetz is not happy about the prospect of being indicted on sex tracking charges, and he made that very clear during an appearance on Steve Bannon’s show “Real America’s Voice.”

“Using a cut-out seems like exactly what they were trying to do to me!” Gaetz fumed before threatening retaliation over the probe that has ensnared at least one of his associates.

“We are going to take power and when we do, it’s not going to be the days of Paul Ryan and Trey Gowdy, where the Republicans go limp-wristed, where they lose their backbone and fail to send a single subpoena,” Gaetz told Bannon. “No, it’s going to be the days of Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene.”

Gaetz then argued that the alleged sex-trafficking investigation had the same “pattern” as the impeachment of former President Donald Trump and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol and claimed that the Department of Justice has “gone totally off the rails” for investigating him.

“There is a pattern that is consistent through the Russia hoax, through the Ukraine matter, through my matter, through Jan. 6,” he said. “And that is that you have these grey operators that are adjacent to the intelligence community.”

“They go an activate other people to seed a lie,” the congressman continued, “or engage in an activity that then gives the national security apparatus the authority to do something that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to do.”

Gaetz also floated the idea that the events that led up to the sex-trafficking investigation were likely part of a government “operation” to take him down: “I’m starting to wonder whether or not what they tried to do to me was extortion or an operation. and more and more, it looks like an operation,” he said.
