Matt Gaetz makes six-figure ad buy targeting CNN amid sex trafficking allegations
By Joseph Choi - 04/14/21 08:37 PM EDT

Embattled Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) announced a six-figure ad buy on Wednesday that will target CNN and what his campaign said would also "fight back" against sex trafficking allegations being investigated by the Justice Department. 

The 30-second television ad will be broadcast on select cable networks both in his congressional district and nationally. Gaetz's campaign said the effort would “fight back against a multiweek fake news cycle against him,” according to Politico.

“Now we see what’s really behind all of this: Democratic Party and media-driven smears aimed at taking out a Congressman of the United States,” a campaign spokesperson said in a statement to Politico.

The ad includes footage by the far-right activist group Project Veritas that shows a man identified as a CNN employee talking about news coverage of Gaetz, Politico reported. Project Veritas is known for publishing undercover sting footage that has been deceptively edited to reflect badly on organizations and people it disagrees with.

Gaetz is under investigation by the Justice Department over allegations that he had sex with and travelled with a minor. The House Ethics Committee has also opened an investigation into Gaetz for allegations of illicit drug use and for showing nude photos of young women to fellow lawmakers while on the House floor.

Yes, and CNN admits they are just harassing him, because he is republican.  I posted twitter link, and RIGHT IN VIRGINIA has it in text.  Almost 18 year old and they make it sound like some toddler.  BUT..LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON AT THE BORDER.  CHILDREN ARE BEING USED....KIDS, ONE, THREE, FIVE YEARS OLD.  No demon-rat or media is looking at that.

Update  --

Matt Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend cooperating with federal sex trafficking investigation

The ex-girlfriend of embattled Florida Representative Matt Gaetz will cooperate with federal authorities investigating alleged sex trafficking by Gaetz, according to people familiar with the matter.

The woman, a former Capitol Hill staffer, is seen as a critical witness, as she has been linked to Gaetz as far back as the summer of 2017, a period of time that has emerged as a key window of scrutiny for investigators. She can also help investigators understand the relevance of hundreds of transactions they have obtained records of, including those involving alleged payments for sex, the sources said.

News of the woman’s willingness to talk, which has not been previously reported, comes just days after the Justice Department formally entered into a plea agreement with Joel Greenberg, a one-time close friend of Gaetz whose entanglement with young women first drew the congressman onto investigators’ radar.

CNN reported last week that investigators were pressing for the woman’s cooperation. The sources would not say whether she had reached a formal cooperation agreement.

Information from Greenberg in the lead-up to his plea agreement has already helped investigators further their scrutiny of the congressman. As he worked towards a plea deal with federal prosecutors in recent months, Greenberg told investigators that Gaetz and at least two other men had sexual contact with a 17-year-old girl, CNN has learned. Gaetz has repeatedly denied he ever had sex with a minor or paid for sex................
