  1. He knows what’s coming as soon as its made clear to everyone his friends would start to distance them selves from him wait and see

    1. Qanon Taylor’s sticking by his side. Funny how Q is against child traffickers except when is one of there own.

    2. @Jonathan Walker. They started running for the hills the moment the accusations began, His only supporters are Marjory Taylor Greene (A Jewel on her own right) and Jim Jordan (Who turned the blind eye to the sexual abuse of students in his care.) Two very valuable assets for the republican party, now, if that does not scream “Conservative” I do not know what does.

  2. Matt Gaetz, Tucker Carlson and Kenneth Copeland, as they get older, more and more, they look like triplets separated at birth.

    1. I wouldn’t be surprised to see DJT Sr & Jr in the midst of it all along with Eric, Dershowitz , Giuliani , Tucker & Hannity to name a few.. ..ROFL Have to wait and see …🤔

    1. Literally no on has bitten the dust. We’ve been bombarded by stories of what is about to happen. I have no reason to believe that these people are subject to the same laws as the rest of us.

    2. @Invisible Pants yes. GREENBURG has?
      He and Mattys ex gf are both giving evidence against him

  3. Wonder if Gaetz has anything to provide prosecutors for a plea-deal, _give up the orange blight Matty, maybe you’ll get out in a decade or so!_

    1. I think the train has already sailed on a deal for Gaetz, I’ll bet they make an example of him BECAUSE of his public office. Hope that holds true for the “Orange Blight” as well!

    2. Seems doubtful. Trump by all accounts would consider Gaetz beneath him socially and have nothing to do with him.

    3. Who knows, could still be guilty. No new info on gaetz for over a month and no victims?. Cuomo on the other hand, should already be in jail. Real allegations from multiple women. But you guys are fixed on someone with very little evidence lol

    4. @Ryan Parker You seem confused. The discussion is about Gaetz and the admitted criminal behavior he was involved in, notice his associate has just pled guilty to a whole host of crimes many of which Gaetz was definitely present for.

    1. @3guys1girlandfetus No, he only goes with the 17 year old boys, wrestler types. These were girls unfortunately for Gym Jordan

    2. Stone is sneaky and sly but his horrific behaviours and blatant breaking of the law, make him think he can avoid consequences indefinitely. There’s no trump to save his hide now,.

    3. @Lianne450. I agree 100% Get them all. They should investigate who the other congressman he showed nude photos of his “conquests” are and hold them accountable for not reporting it. “He who passively accepts evil is involved in it as much as the one that perpetrates it,” MLK said if I recall correctly.

  4. People have already forgotten that Matt Gaetz asked for a blanket pardon from Spanky McBoneSpurs when Skanky was still president.

    1. And was refused! Boohoo poor baby. Hopefully they all go down including Stone for brokering sales of pardons.

  5. It’s funny how the only congress man that voted against the bill for stopping child trafficking is gaetz and now he’s accused of child trafficking 🤔

    1. @Paul Wilson He pled guilty to that himself. [I know, facts have a ‘liberal’ bias].
      By the way, how are those bleach injections for Covid working out?

    2. Yeah Matt gaetz is still waving the Trump flag that should tell you something about the party of trump .

    3. @V K The Feds don’t excuse 27 felony counts without corroborating evidence. [Unless… their name is Bill Barr(?)]

  6. Charge Gaetz we need to see some high rollers go to “Jail” lock their a🐎ss up 🤔🥂🍾🥂

  7. The beauty of the way Federal law enforcement works compared to state & local is that by the time the Feds arrest someone, the case is already ironclad. They don’t arrest on suspicion. They arrest on evidence.

    1. No, they detain people on suspicion. They watch and harass people on suspicion. They lie to people who they suspect, they threaten folks. They’ve murdered people. They have married activists while under cover to get closer to their organizing. They use civil forfeiture every bit as corruptly as state and local law enforcement agencies except on a much grander scale. And a lot of the people they suspect are never charged because they are innocent, mostly. And we know this because the feds are incredibly good at their jobs as you point out and if they had any thing then they would make an arrest.

      No, the feds are the rainbows and kittens you make them out to be and they have a very disgusting, morally bankrupt and corrupt past which includes murder, bribery, blackmail, drug, weapon and alcohol sold illicitly.

      They are pigs just the same and they are just as bad as regular law enforcement but the various federal agencies have enough resources to employ the best in their respective fields and enough people to take on major investigations. In most cities, investigators work alone or with a partner and are in a rotation. The feds should have that kind of record with as much resources as is poured into them but they are still just as messed up as every other agency and worse in many regards.

    2. While I agree prosecution teams are more thorough on the federal level, I cannot agree with the ‘ironclad’ declaration. The feds lose cases. Not often, but it does happen. I know one thing. Were I to ever face federal prosecution I’d have my bags packed well in advance of the jury’s verdict. Going home at the conclusion of a federal criminal trial just doesn’t happen very often.

    3. @Legend 28 where are you getting this from? he took a plea deal professor… that means the charges were just brought up.

  8. That little bit of power made dude crazy; just that little bit of authority and privilege put him in position to face multiple felonies. Power corrupts…

    1. @nand nicarrabla You keep throwing that word “lies” around. Care to enlighten me on what lies I’ve told, kiddo?

    2. @Jody Owen Yeah, hookers and blow, that’s how Nancy rolls……..🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    3. @ENOREL, No, that happens when as a child you are never thought any values when the Parents fail their kids miserably and compensate them by letting them roam free of any kind of accountability as a replacement for their time or love. It is not the first time he has been in trouble, is it? Daddy got him off a DUI charge, no teaching moments I guess. I hope he goes to jail and stays there until he is old and hopefully impotent so he does not get to spawn any other monsters.

    4. @tomcoryell Your pals were talking about corrupted power being a Republucan monopoly.

      Newsflash. It isn’t .

    5. Actually, perhaps it’s more the fact that the prospect of power attracts corrupt people. Wise words right here;

      *Those who seek power should automatically, by definition, be disqualified from ever doing so.*

    1. @Mylene ….AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU, BRO!!!…😂🤣😂🤣😄😃😀😅😂😄😃😀😅😂🤣😁😆😅😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    2. @Analogy Accepted oh dont be a party pooper, please…..let us have a little fun with” widle Mattie, pweeeeaaase…..” 😂🤣😂🤣😂

  9. That’s right, all they need is that evidence! No Greenberg testimony required! The arrogance of both he and Gaetz will be rewarded 👍😆

  10. “There are co-conspirators, we just don’t know who they are!” – hmm, I just can’t Gaetz who that Matt be hiding under a Stone

    EDIT: added one more

  11. Our Father, who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name. PLEASE put these a$$holes in Federal prison, preferably USP Atlanta, general population Then help us right our listing Republic. Amen 🙏🇺🇸

    1. Realistically public figures would be in protective custody. And even Greenberg maybe since it involves a minor.

    2. Are you trying for an ironic version of Twain’s “Mysterious Stranger” or are you sincerely invoking God to support your petty politics?

  12. “Tick Tock, Matt Gaetz” 🤣🤣🤣 That just made my day! 🕰 Lock them up!

  13. Seeing justice in the form of a perp walk for one of these corrupt politicians will be a Zenlike moment for many. Because Justice Matters.

  14. “Tick Tock, Matt Gaetz!” Whoever paid for that banner is a great American and my role model.

    1. ….no kidding!!…. I laughed hard seeing that sign flying….😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👍🏻
