Gaetz going on the offensive claiming extortion against an FBI agent.

Gaetz was considering a Senate run and looked at by some as an up-and-coming political force in the GOP. Who knows; even if the allegations are legitimate he still could be.

Crazy to think he was under investigation when he flew to Wyoming to lead a rally against Liz Cheney after she voted to impeach Trump.

As if members of the dems have never done TOTAL STUPID and then been elected/re-elected. Anyone caught breaking the law should spend time behind bars.

Sorry, wasn’t making light of it. I was trying not to rush to judgement (which seems all to prevalent these days). If he did this I hope they throw the book at him and lock him away.

No worries man, I didn’t think you were making light.

Guess who are the two GOPers standing with Matt:

Jim Jordan (often referred to as “Gym” in social media)
Marjorie Taylor Greene (recently said CrossFit is her vaccine and promptly CrossFit said they are NOT a vaccine)

Greene is implying that a great phys ed program keeps you healthy. I would think they would welcome the thumbs up. But guessing they probably get butthurt by the sound of Trumps voice...

I don’t think it has anything to do with Trump. As someone who is responsible for a business, I can see how they would wish to distance themselves from the endorsement of a QAnon devotee. I would distance my business as well.

From strictly a business standpoint; I would suspect most businesses would stay away from anti-vaxxers and conspiracy theorists. Especially if the business owner recently made a raciest tweet. :-^

Crossfit isn't that healthy, nor is it a Covid deterrent as she implied.


Don't let this distract you from the fact that the griz blew a 22-0 lead.

Well Matt's rising in the GOP seems like it might be crashing down as pretty much everyone is distancing themselves from him.

Of course when Matt's best buddy was arrested last June and subsequently charged with a variety of criminal offences, including stalking, fraud, bribery, embezzlement, identity theft, forgery and sex trafficking, hanging with Matt probably isn't a good idea...

Everyone needs to calm down here. It’s not like he tried to overthrow the government.

Not sure how Matt is getting out of this conundrum when his "get out of jail free card" wasn't collected! This dude is obviously in it deep, and apparently he knew that months ago. I wonder who the unidentified congressional allies he was also asking for blanket pardons were.

This story is getting more strange by the day. The former intelligence guy just came out and said "yes I did ask his dad for $25 million but it wasn't extortion".

I'm hoping there is a fair look into this on all sides. If Gaetz messed with anyone underage he should be thrown in prison, vice versa if it was some weird plot for money that dude should be in prison.
