Florida Prosecutor Explains Why Things Are Going Downhill for Matt Gaetz
Over the last few months, it has been mostly quiet on the Matt Gaetz front as of late. The bombastic Florida congressman had initially come out strong against sexual trafficking allegations made against him. Now he has apparently clammed up about the matter.
That does not mean, however, that his troubles are going away. In fact, they may be getting worse. This week, Federal prosecutors granted Joel Greenberg, a close friend of Gaetz, more time to cooperate with them.
Ari Melber discussed the issue tonight with David Aronberg, the state attorney for Palm Beach County. And according to Greenberg, this is bad news for Gaetz. He explained to Melber:
“That tells me that the federal prosecutors believe that Joel Greenberg, who was referred to as Matt Gaetz’s wingman in the past, that he has valuable evidence that the prosecutors think he will provide and that it shows that Greenberg is still motivated to provide the evidence. And after all, Matt Gaetz is a lifeline for Greenberg because Greenberg is still facing up to life in prison. He pled guilty to child sex trafficking. So, turning on the big fish here, a member of Congress, could get him a sharply reduced sentence.”
