Rep. Matt Gaetz Reportedly Under Federal Investigation, Tells Tucker Carlson That ‘Underage Girl’ Story Is A ‘Lie’

By

In the wake of revelations from the New York Times and other outlets that Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz is under federal investigation for a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl, Gaetz told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson on Tuesday that it was a “lie.”

Gaetz claimed that the allegations arose from an “extortion” scheme and even named Pensacola, Florida lawyer David McGee, a former U.S. Attorney, as the culprit.

The original story in the New York Times is apparently another leak from the Department of Justice.

DOJ is allegedly investigating Gaetz for violating sex trafficking laws, for traveling with an unnamed 17 year-old.

Watch Gaetz’ interview with Tucker below.
