Matt Gaetz Under Investigation For Sex Trafficking a Minor, Claims A DOJ Official Trying To Extort Him For $25 Million

Florida representative Matt Gaetz is currently under investigation for sex trafficking that involved an underage 17-year-old girlfriend who he allegedly paid to travel with him. While the investigation is still going, Gaetz is making some pretty bold claims.

Gaetz says that he’s the victim of organized crime extortion that involves a former DOJ official as they are seeking $25 million from him while threatening to smear his name. He even says that he’s been cooperating with federal authorities on this matter.

While the news has been going on, Gaetz has been tweeting about it, saying,

“Over the past several weeks my family and I have been victims of an organized criminal extortion involving a former DOJ official seeking $25 million while threatening to smear my name. We have been cooperating with federal authorities in this matter and my father has even been wearing a wire at the FBI’s direction to catch these criminals. The planted leak to the FBI tonight was intended to thwart that investigation. No part of the allegations against me are true, and the people pushing these lies are targets of the ongoing extortion investigation. I demand the DOJ immediately release the tapes, made at their direction, which implicate their former colleague in crimes against me based on false allegations.”

Gaetz also claims there are tapes that were made at the direction of the DOJ which will implicate their former colleague!

“I demand the DOJ immediately release the tapes, made at their direction, which implicate their former colleague in crimes against me based on false allegations.”

Gaetz has since come out and named the former DOJ worker as David McGee. David McGee served for the (DOJ) Department of Justice and has practiced law for 37 years. 

While Gaetz has not been charged and is currently under investigation.
