Report: Rep. Matt Gaetz sought pre-emptive presidential pardons for self, allies

According to the New York Times, Rep. Matt Gaetz reportedly asked the White House for a blanket pardon for himself and unnamed allies in Congress in the final weeks of the Trump administration. This came as DOJ investigated Gaetz over an alleged relationship with a 17-year-old that violated sex trafficking laws. It was not clear if Gaetz was aware of the federal inquiry while the sought a pardon.

I need on record sources for these types.of claims. They have lied so many times about this type of thing I just can't believe what these people publish. Without actual evidence or any on record sources this should be believed like me saying that 9/11 was done by aliens.

Is Matt Gaetz a scumbag? Possibly. Did he ask for pardons because he knew he wouldn’t get a fair shake because of media bias? Also possible. Does the NYT suck? Absolutely.

Crazy right wingers will defend a sex trafficking case due to media framing and legal sex with a Chinese spy. Right wingers blow my mind. I thought they were the party that valued family but wanna defend this predator for akward reasons.

Apple didn’t fall far from the Trump tree here “allegedly”. Of course the “moral” majority evangelical new right will jump through hoops to defend this m0ron. The daily moral compromises these so called Christians must make to support these frauds must be exhausting.

NYT, and most papers I grew up with have increasingly began replacing excellent papers like the national enquirer. Just a few more ufo stories and they gonna overtake them!

The disgusting Republicans stand by men who like kids and gross old men who are accused of assault and other horrible acts. Nothing will get a GOP to admit they are wrong. Many are horrible and have fallen. The entire senate are weak and old and should all be voted out of office. Shame on all of them.
