During an appearance on Newsmax this Friday, Florida GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz said that he’s not too worried that his former friend Joel Greenberg is cooperating with prosecutors in a wide-ranging sex-trafficking investigation, saying there are more pressing things to worry about, like encroaching socialism in the U.S.
“I’m not too worried about Joel Greenberg,” Gaetz said. “Joel Greenberg is literally sitting in jail right now because he originally accused someone who was innocent of having a relationship with a minor.”
“That wasn’t true, it was just a false thing that Joel Greenberg had said,” he continued. “And that’s landed him in quite a bit of trouble. But I’m not focused on scandal, I’m focused on socialism and what it’s doing to our country.”
According to Gaetz, Democrats were always “trying to get Trump to focus on something other than the well-being of our country and out people.”
“But he made America great anyway,” he said.
“So I’m going to focus on serving my constituents and election integrity. It’s my expectation that the truth will prevail.”
