Career prosecutors have recommended against charging Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) in a long-running sex-trafficking investigation — telling Justice Department superiors that a conviction is unlikely in part because of credibility questions with the two central witnesses, according to people familiar with the matter.
“You cannot trust my wingman,” Gaetz argued, “the guy is a convicted sex trafficker!”
We note for the record that Gaetz asked Hair Füror for a pardon (and was willing to pay for it!), which is normal for someone who is totally innocent to do.
Just in time for the big Homecoming dance.
More proof that there is one justice system and everyone is subject to the same laws. Good one, eh?
A solid representation of things past, and a pathetic harbinger of things to come. Sadly, it never occurred to me that he would suffer so much as a missed night’s sleep over this.

I smell rank prosecutorial cowardice or incompetence here. “Credibility questions with the two central witnesses,” you say? Are you telling me that you can’t oblige the young lady to testify that she was taken across state lines to get laid? And that she got paid? What about those Venmo records? And what kind of effing plea bargain did you work up with his BFF that that male witness and co-procurer didn’t have an arrangement with Gaetz for this very purpose?
You should have enough to put this before a grand jury, and then let the jury decide.
