Matt Gaetz: If Trump wins, you might be calling me ‘Attorney General’

During an appearance on Newsmax this Friday, Colorado GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz floated the idea that he could end up being attorney general if Donald Trump wins the 2024 election.

“I don’t ascribe to the theory that we just have to surrender sending criminal referrals because somehow [Attorney General] Merrick Garland will never prosecute them,” Gaetz said.

“For many of the crimes that we are observing, the statute of limitations is five years, and so we could send criminal referrals to the Department of Justice, we go take the White House back, and you never know, David, it may be an Attorney General Matt Gaetz down the road or someone of my liking who will be there to actually enforce the law and provide the accountability,” he he told Newsmax host David Harris Jr.

“I like that,” Harris said. “Attorney General Matt Gaetz. You kidding me?”

“The world is not ready, probably,” Gaetz replied “Certainly Senate confirmation wouldn’t be, but you know, a boy can dream.”
