Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie alerts us:
PARDON ME? — Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) asked then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows for Trump to consider a preemptive pardon, according to testimony given to the Jan. 6 select committee. The Washington Post reported that former Trump personal aide Johnny McEntee told the Jan. 6 panel that Gaetz requested a preemptive pardon from President Donald Trump in the sex-trafficking investigation that has involved him. (Gaetz did not end up receiving a pardon from Trump.)
And we will note for the record that this weekend, Gaetz appeared at something billed as a Youth Summit – and look at the youths the Republicans attracted, I bet some of them are actually breathing:
Maybe the parents of the youths asked the grandparents to chaperone?
