Rep. Matt Gaetz friend Joel Greenberg will plead guilty in case that led to sex traffic probe, court

Source: CNBC

Joel Greenberg, a friend of Rep. Matt Gaetz, has agreed to plead guilty in a criminal case connected to the federal sex-trafficking investigation of the Republican lawmaker and Trump ally, court records show.

Greenberg is scheduled to appear Monday morning in federal court in Orlando, Florida, for a change of plea hearing, the records state.

Greenberg, a county tax collector in Florida, faces charges including sex trafficking of a minor, stalking, wire fraud and identity theft. He pleaded not guilty to those charges, but his lawyer and prosecutors told a judge last month that Greenberg was expected to strike a plea deal.

Gaetz, who represents Florida's First Congressional District in the panhandle, has denied any wrongdoing and has not been criminally charged.

CNN is reporting that Greenberg has "flipped" and is cooperating with investigators/prosecutors in the Gaetz investigation.

Will this be nicknamed "Gaetz-gate"?

1. The guy is facing 33 counts, and only a minority are the sex trafficking stuff.

Even with cooperation, he is very very screwed. As he deserves.

Today would be a good day for Matt Gaetz to be indicted.

#Gaetzgate is slow moving, unlike all the jetting around Matt did of underage girls for sex exploits he photographed, then shared his pics on the House floor.

6. Plea bargains usually come with expected testimony against someone

They will hold off on sentencing until he completes his obligation.

15. I'm sure he's been talking up a storm.

With all those charges, he's looking at a lot of prison time. A guy like him won't do well in prison. I dont think he'll walk scot free, but they'll drop a bunch of those charges for the right info.
Gaetz has turned his back on this guy. Payback can be a mofo.
