USA politician Matt Gaetz says he won't resign over 'false' sex allegations

BREAKING Matt Gaetz SLAMS Washington swamp for trying to'drown him with false accusations

Gaetz offered a different line of attack in a Monday opinion piece for the Washington Examiner titled: "The swamp is out to drown me with false charges, but I'm not giving up".

McCain said, "There have always been weird rumors about Matt Gaetz on Capitol Hill".

"I want to be clear about something as we process the leaks and lies from the past week", Gaetz wrote. To this point, there are exactly zero credible (or even non-credible) accusers willing to come forward by name and state on the public record that I behaved improperly toward them, in the manner by which Democratic Gov.

Katie Hill resigned after she was hit with an ethics investigation over allegations that she was sleeping with one of her legislative staffers, which violates House rules that were implemented after the #MeToo movement.

Gaetz's office did not reply to Insider's request for comment.

Former Air Force Capt. Nathaniel Nelson, who served as Gaetz's director of military affairs, said he was contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation shortly after news broke that the Department of Justice was investigating whether Gaetz had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl in 2019 and broke federal sex-trafficking laws.

Gaetz, who has not been charged with any crimes, denied the accusations Monday. Given Mr. Gaetz's national profile, senior Justice Department officials in Washington - including some appointed by Mr. Trump - were notified of the investigation, the people said.

Former Jordanian Crown Prince 'under house arrest'
On Saturday, authorities in Jordan announced their decision to arrest 20 people, including high-profile officials. The army said it had cautioned Hamzah against damaging the country's security, but denied he had been arrested.

A former aide for Rep. Matt Gaetz said the sex trafficking allegations against him were "baseless".

Gaetz did not mention the alleged plot in his op-ed. "I'm actually not. What's particularly gross is he's the only congressman to vote against an anti-sex trafficking bill that was on the floor a year ago".

In his op-ed, Gaetz continued to deny any wrongdoing and reiterated - as he has since the initial allegation that he slept with a 17-year-old and subsequent claims that he paid for drug-fueled hotel romps - that he is "absolutely not resigning".

Gaetz said since becoming engaged, he has changed his lifestyle, but nothing he did before in his personal life was illegal.

Rep. David Valadao, R-Calif., said he was transferring 2020 campaign donations from Gaetz to an organization supporting domestic abuse survivors. Although I'm sure some partisan crooks in [Attorney General] Merrick Garland's Justice Department want to pervert the truth and the law to go after me, I will not be intimidated or extorted.

Nelson, who said he remains "loosely affiliated" with Gaetz's office as an unpaid adviser, stated that he notified Gaetz's office that he had spoken to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, but that he has not spoken to the congressman personally in months. Nelson said the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents told him members of the national media were chasing leads that Nelson resigned because he knew about Gaetz's illicit behavior.
