Gaetz Cohort Expected to Plead Guilty in Federal Case

Reports have begun circulating that Joel Greenberg, an associate of embattled Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, is expected to plead guilty to criminal charges during a hearing on Monday.

Fox News reports:

Joel Greenberg will appear Monday in federal court in Orlando, Florida, for a change of plea hearing, according to court documents. He had been working for weeks toward a deal with federal prosecutors who are investigating sex trafficking and public corruption allegations.

The plea potentially escalates the legal and political jeopardy the Florida congressman is facing and signals that Greenberg could potentially serve as a witness in the Justice Department’s investigation into Gaetz.

Investigators have also been looking at whether Gaetz and his associates tried to secure government jobs for some of the women, the people said. They are also scrutinizing Gaetz’s connections to the medical marijuana sector, including whether his associates sought to influence legislation Gaetz sponsored.

Greenberg was charged in August with sex trafficking a girl between ages 14 and 17 and using a state database to look up information about the girl and other people with whom he was engaged in “sugar daddy” relationships, according to the indictment.

The Department of Justice began investigating Rep. Gaetz during the Trump administration for sexual misconduct with a minor and sex trafficking. The Florida Republican has vehemently denied the accusations and insisted he will not resign from Congress.

Looks like Greenberg is going to make up all kinds of, “beans to spill” about Gaetz to try and lighten the sentence he’s going to get for playing with underage girls!

Does Greenberg have physical PROOF of his information? Emails phone calls, pictures, etc. Just more “deep state” BS. How can these people look themselves in the face after TAKING AN OATH TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION? Can hardly wait for KARMA to hit.

AGREE! Matt Gaetz is coming under attack because he has been so vocal against the illegal and immoral actions of the left. They have done the same exact $hit to Trump, and other conservative presidential, senate and house candidates – HERE WE GO AGAIN. Smae ole $hit! The left never changes as this made up ‘SEX’ angle works by promoting bad, destructive headlines – and if you hear something 3 times, most idiots believe it! It is simply an all out effort toward destruction just like COVID.

Oh, wow…now this comes up because Marjory Taylor Greene has said good things about Gaetz. This is to make her look bad because the powers that be are afraid of Greene because she isn’t afraid to go after the corruption in the Capital. It’s a round about way to get to her, not necessarily Gaetz.

This seems to be a regular problem with politicians. Looking like once the candidate has been elected, they must be de-sexed. This should keep unnecessary distractions at a non event, whilst working for their constituents.

So, if Greenberg wants to save his skin for having had something to do with an underage girl, he’ll say anything about Gaetz.

This sounds like a re-run of the shyster Cohen who tried to put his guilt off on President Trump.

This is actually bad news for the democrats, and everybody knows the democrats will go after any republican they can. This makes it easy for them to resume their corruption as usual, and without any real evidence to support what Greenberg says.

It’s a Kangaroo Court and Gaetz clarified he was innocent. His “friend” is trying to give himself a lesser sentence so “friend” can be squeezed to say anything.

Once lived in Seminole County and worked against Greenberg, but money always helps a candidate win. I too believe he will say anything to get a lighter sentence! Congress Gaetz needs to pick his associates better, and that is sometimes hard to do.
