Using an old and tired propaganda trick of convincing supporters that everyone on the Left is a pedophile, the right-wing fringe members of Congress – Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lauren Boebert, even Elise Stefanik – have painted lewd and malicious allegations against their political opponents. Now, their hypocrisy is even more clear since none of them have repudiated or called for the dismissal of Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) from Congress.
Breaking WaPo: Matt Gaetz told a former White House aide that he was seeking a preemptive pardon from Trump regarding the Justice Department's sex trafficking probe, according to testimony provided to the Jan. 6 Committee. https://t.co/cuRB2mwQP5

Although the news that Gaetz asked the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice and tried to stage a coup, Donald Trump, for a pardon is not new, it was previously assumed to have been related to the attack on Congress on January 6, 2021. As it turns out, Gaetz actually asked for a preemptive pardon, knowing that an investigation into his friend that led to a conviction for child sex trafficking was closing in. Gaetz is accused of having paid for a 17-year-old girl to fly across state lines to have sex for him in exchange for money and gifts.
Johnny McEntee, former Director of the White House Presidential Personnel Office under Trump, told investigators that Gaetz spoke to him about an investigation into the allegations of child sex trafficking against him and that, if Trump could give him a preemptive pardon for those crimes, “that would be great.”
According to The Washington Post, who was first to break the story:
‘The testimony is the first indication that Gaetz was specifically seeking a pardon for his own exposure related to the Justice Department inquiry into whether he violated sex trafficking laws…The Justice Department investigation into whether Gaetz paid for sex, paid for women to travel across state lines to have sex, and had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old, was opened in the final months of the Trump administration with approval from Attorney General William P. Barr.’
Twitter wasn’t the least bit surprised to hear the news of Gaetz plea for a pardon and said that his search for a pardon is a sure indication of his guilt. Read some of their comments below:
