The Matt Gaetz political affair …

Have you been wondering what is going on with Matt Gaetz and his attackers? As a Republican capable of hammering Democrats for their lies he has been attacked with unbelievable smears.

Before this came into the news, I didn’t realize that Gaetz comes from a wealthy family, and that there had indeed been an attempt at blackmail. Now this. The plot thickens!

New York Post:

The man accused of trying to extort $25 million from Rep. Matt Gaetz’s family admitted Monday that he asked the congressman’s dad for cash — but denied that it was a shakedown.

Bob Kent, an ex-Air Force intelligence officer, confirmed to Sirius Radio host Michael Smerconish that he approached the Florida Republican’s dad, Don Gaetz, for money last month.

The funds, Kent said, were to pay for an effort to free Robert Levinson, a former FBI agent who disappeared in Iran in 2007, and is believed to be dead. Kent claimed he has video evidence that Levinson is still alive and is being held hostage.

Kent said he met Don Gaetz, a wealthy former Florida politician, at his office on March 17 — and told him his son was having “legal issues” and might want to “generate good will” by helping with the rescue effort.

“I explained that in no way am I trying to extort him and that if he decides not to help us, he’ll never hear from me again,” Kent told Smerconish.

“Matt Gaetz is in need of good publicity, and I’m in need of $25 million to save Robert Levinson,” he added.

That sounds like a shakedown to me. Didn’t we used to call that blackmail?  The story continues:

Documents obtained by the Washington Examiner, however, showed how Kent allegedly texted Don Gaetz saying he had a plan that could make his son’s “future legal and political problems go away.”

Kent also gave Don a document called “Project Homecoming” that detailed the alleged federal probe against Matt Gaetz and claimed the FBI had photos of the lawmaker in a “sexual orgy with underage prostitutes.”

“Our strategy for Congressman Gaetz to mitigate his legal, and political, troubles would be for him, or someone else, to arrange for the funds required to obtain the immediate release of Robert Levinson from captivity in Iran,” the document stated…

Don Gaetz contacted the FBI about the proposal and the agency is investigating whether it constitutes an extortion attempt against the Gaetz clan, the Washington Post reported last week.

Matt Gaetz has denied any involvement in sex trafficking.

    Oh gosh, these guys are really getting sloppy. They tried this same scam on Oleg Deripaska just a few years ago, attempting to get Deripaska to lie about Candidate Trump during Russiagate.
    More proof our non-elected bureaucrats are really really stoopid.
    Wonder if they offered to meet Matt Gaetz’s dad in the Russian embassy in Miami? (/s)

    Frei and Barnes discussed this last Sunday night, and this is worth one’s time.
    Robert Barnes is current on this case. 23:57

    Heck, if they wanted to blackmail someone for sexcapades, Rubio would be the first choice, although Gaetz is still too naive for his own good.
    The Body Language Ghost lady “analyzed” Gaetz’s appearance on Tucker Carlson, proving once again her “readings” are for entertainment – and her financial – interests only.

    Hope Gaetz is laughing over this by now. Gaetz is really close with Bannon, so who knows where Gaetz will go with this? Payback is def in the future. imo 😉

    But Wait! There’s More!

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one.
    Remember that Gaetz staffer who quit when he heard of the allegations against Gaetz?
    Ya. Fake News.

    Nathan Nelson, Gaetz Dir of Military Affairs, held a press conference yesterday. The FBI had been to visit Mr Nelson the previous evening, sent there on “tips” from “news sources,” that Mr Nelson had quit due to the Gaetz allegations and had knowledge about Congressman Gaetz’s actions.

    Mr Nelson had turned in his resignation long before the Gaetz allegations. It sounds like Mr Nelson is starting a defense contractor start-up in the Florida panhandle (my speculation).
    Mr Nelson ended by wheeling away in his wheelchair (disabled vet? This was – past tense – a big guy. Cannot identify his lapel pin.).

    The point is, FBI is acting on “tips” from “news sources.”
    Now, where have we heard this exact same scenario, with different actors?
    smh
    They must think we are all like The Selected One, with no memory or will.

    Anyone still interested in this other than me?
    This is getting weirder and weirder.

    Fredo Cuomo interviewed the blackmailer guy on Fredo’s CN&N Mon evening show, some Bob Kent, former Air Force Intel Officer, according to Fredo.

    Raheem Kassam, bless his dedicated little heart, reviewed the Fredo-Intel guy’s interview, and here’s where it gets weirder. The entire interview sounds staged/scripted to me – Creepy Porn Lawyer, anyone? – but Kassam takes it all at face value.

    At the end of the podcast, it gets peak weird. Kassam makes the connection to Liz Cheney.
    Sounds preposterous, huh?

    Think back to the last shampeachment. What it really less than three months ago?
    Cheny took the leadership position and moved to shampeach Pres Trump.
    The Wyoming GOP was voting on whether or not to censure Cheney.

    Recall, who went to Wyoming and held a rally to censure Liz Cheney.
    Matt Gaetz.
    No need to give you all details re: the Cheneys.
