Bad Times for Matt?

An associate of Rep. Matt Gaetz’s is working toward a plea deal with federal prosecutors investigating a sex trafficking operation, potentially escalating the legal and political jeopardy facing the Florida congressman.

The revelation that a political ally of Gaetz’s, Joel Greenberg, is seeking to strike a plea deal with investigators came during a hearing Thursday at federal court in Orlando. It’s a significant step in the case and signals that Greenberg could potentially serve as a witness in the Justice Department’s investigation into Gaetz.

I'd upgrade that from "potentially" to "highly likely". When a politician is immeshed in a criminal scandal and an associate cops a plea, it's dead-nuts certain that the plea deal will be seasoned with a few dashes of snitching. It'll be the snitching that results in a heavy downward departure from the sentencing guidelines, and/or gets all sentences to run concurrently.

Republicans: “Despite the evidence, I believe Matt Gatez”

Also Republicans: “I believe Q-anon, despite there being no evidence.”

And then there is the GOPoQ’s big lie: “The election was stolen!”

I can't help but laugh at a meme going around, that Gaetz's problems came to light not long after he got in Dick Cheney's spawns' face.
You don't mess with Dick Cheney or his family.
