A confession letter written by friend of Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz and accused sex trafficker, Joel Greenberg, has been obtained by The Daily Beast. The letter was written in the final months of Donald Trump’s presidency and admits that he and Gaetz paid for sex with a girl who was 17-years-old at the time.
“On more than one occasion, this individual was involved in sexual activities with several of the other girls, the congressman from Florida’s 1st Congressional District and myself,” Greenberg wrote in reference to the 17-year-old. “From time to time, gas money or gifts, rent or partial tuition payments were made to several of these girls, including the individual who was not yet 18. I did see the acts occur firsthand and Venmo transactions, Cash App or other payments were made to these girls on behalf of the Congressman.”
As The Daily Beast points out, the letter was written after Greenberg asked Roger Stone to help him secure a pardon from Trump.
“In late 2020, Greenberg was out of jail and in communication with Stone. A series of private messages between the two—also recently obtained by The Daily Beast—shows a number of exchanges between Greenberg and Stone conducted over the encrypted messaging app Signal, with communications set to disappear. However, Greenberg appears to have taken screenshots of a number of their conversations,” reports the Beast’s Jose Pagliery and Roger Sollenberger. “‘If I get you $250k in Bitcoin would that help or is this not a financial matter,’ Greenberg wrote to Stone. ‘I understand all of this and have taken it into consideration,’ Stone replied. ‘I will know more in the next 24 hours I cannot push too hard because of the nonsense surrounding pardons.'”
