Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz‘s ex-girlfriend is reportedly now cooperating with the federal investigation into is alleged involvement in sex-trafficking, CNN reports.

“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,” CNN’s Paula Reid, David Shortell and Gloria Borger report. “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.”
