Watch Matt Gaetz, Unprompted, Start Screaming About Investigation into His Sexual Assault Charges

Matt Gaetz wants the public to believe that the possible charges (where are they!) against him, which seem to be bothering him a bit now that a “former girlfriend” has agreed to cooperate, having been given full immunity, are simply political, no different than the investigations into Trump.

Gaetz used an appearance on Steve Bannon’s show to fly into what can best be described as a tantrum, to argue that he is being treated like Trump was with the “Russian hoax.”

Gaetz went off, entirely unprompted:

“Using a cut-out seems like exactly what they were trying to do to me!

“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. No, it’s going to be the days of Jim Jordan and Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene.”

Now there’s a group to lead the United States Congress, Jordan, Gaetz, and Marjorie, all three of whom might have played a role in January 6th insurrection, attempted coup.

Gaetz then really started getting into it, how it is possible that they are investigating him as a political agenda, forgetting – of course, that Bill Barr was A.G. when the investigation began.

“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 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.”

“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.”
