Matt Gaetz's ex-girlfriend to cooperate with federal authorities in sex trafficking investigation

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN)Federal authorities investigating alleged sex trafficking by GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz have secured the cooperation of the congressman's ex-girlfriend, according to people familiar with the matter.

The woman, a former Capitol Hill staffer, is seen as a critical witness, as she has been linked to Gaetz as far back as the summer of 2017, a period of time that has emerged as a key window of scrutiny for investigators. She can also help investigators understand the relevance of hundreds of transactions they have obtained records of, including those involving alleged payments for sex, the sources said.

News of the woman's willingness to talk, which has not been previously reported, comes just days after the Justice Department formally entered into a plea agreement with Joel Greenberg, a one-time close friend of Gaetz whose entanglement with young women first drew the congressman onto investigators' radar.

CNN reported last week that investigators were pressing for the woman's cooperation. The sources would not say whether she had reached a formal cooperation agreement.

Matt Gaetz has had sex in more ways than one, meaning Matt Gaetz is f*ed.

1. She can only cooperate so long as it doesn't get in the way of her schoolwork.

2. Good.

Because for obvious reasons Joel Greenberg isn't the world's most credible witness.

9. He will be when his story is corroborated by other witnesses

It's very easy to write off a snitch when there's nothing to back it up, but much harder when others are saying the same thing.

At the end of the day the feds are going to have a very long trail of evidence that goes straight up his rapist ass.

14. Indeed.

Greenberg by himself it's not a credible witness was my only point.

15. I understand your point which I think is very much on the minds of federal prosecutors

His testimony will just be one piece of the puzzle which when assembled paints a very clear image.

21. Gaetz picked Greenberg, not the prosecutors.

It is Gaetz is who called Greenberg his "wing man." That is why Greenberg is a witness in this case.

That is why virtually every co-conspirator witness is a scumbag. You're not going to have nice people as witnesses to these sort of sex trafficking crimes. There would be few convictions if only nice people could be witnesses.

5. When they say "ex-girlfriend", it seems to mean "one of his girlfriends at that time"

because if "she has been linked to Gaetz as far back as the summer of 2017", was "present on a September 2018 trip to the Bahamas", you wonder when he broke up with Nestor Galban's sister. That was during Nestor's junior high school year, and he graduated in 2020, so that was 2018-19. So this ex overlapped with the sister (who was close to Gaetz's family, not just a friend with benefits) for over a year.

10. I don't think he had any girlfriends, or at least not any recent ones

He had women he engaged in coitus with after money has changed hands and at least one other below the age of consent he raped.

I think that's why he has pretended to be engaged and was trying to rope Fucker Carlson into admitting he was attached to another woman. He desperately needs to appear as if he has normal relationships with adults of the opposite sex when the reality is he does not.

6. "former capitol hill staffer".....

Ahha. Was she his staffer? Did she ever show up for work? Wonder what kind of qualifications he was looking for?

The feds had enough on her to flip her, and obstruction is a pretty hollow charge to try to get someone into what amounts to witsec.

She had to be nailed on something hard. Greenberg probably sealed her deal. Remember there was a no show job provided to the under age girl (now woman).

11. He doesn't have nearly enough fortitude

You have to remember he's basically a guy who has entered his late 30's and is desperately trying to relive his high school days when younger women would agree to have sex with him without cash up front. The reality is he's a completely pathetic excuse for a human and always will be.

16. In the federal system whatever he gaetz, he gaetz

Unlike state systems there's almost no chance of time off for good behavior. Whatever sentence he receives will very likely be served to the day.
