Scandal-plagued Florida politician Joel Greenberg reportedly tried to leverage his relationship with Rep. Matt Gaetz to get a pardon from Trump


Florida politician Joel Greenberg tried pressure prominent GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz to secure a pardon from President Donald Trump, Politico reported.

Greenberg and Gaetz, close allies in Florida and strong supporters of Trump, are now facing scrutiny from the Department of Justice for the potential sex trafficking of a minor.

Two sources told Politico that Greenberg spoke multiple times about pushing Gaetz to use his relationship with Trump to ask for a pardon. Gaetz has refused to confirm or deny whether Greenberg asked for the pardon, but he has denied passing along the requests to Trump.

1. Hah! Gaetz can't get a pardon for himself much less someone else.

trump just rejected a request for a meeting from Gaetz. And when a lousy, corrupt, lying pol like trump won't meet with you, you're in deep shit.

3. Nah, it's just that loyalty is a one-way street in Trumpville. He only pardoned those who could hurt

him, or help him. It seems that neither Greenberg nor Gaetz could do anything for Donald except put a spotlight on his alleged past as a procurer of "foreign models" as escorts to the ultrarich.
