After the New York Times published a bombshell story about Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) on Tuesday, Gaetz shared his own shocking account of the story in an exclusive interview with Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson.

The New York Times article claimed:

Representative Matt Gaetz, Republican of Florida and a close ally of former President Donald J. Trump, is being investigated by the Justice Department over whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him, according to three people briefed on the matter.

Investigators are examining whether Mr. Gaetz violated federal sex trafficking laws, the people said. A variety of federal statutes make it illegal to induce someone under 18 to travel over state lines to engage in sex in exchange for money or something of value. The Justice Department regularly prosecutes such cases, and offenders often receive severe sentences.

Gaetz has emphatically denied the allegations, and told the New York Times in an interview that the DOJ has told his lawyers he is the subject, not the target, of an investigation. Gaetz said it is “part of an elaborate scheme involving false sex allegations to extort him and his family for $25 million.”

Gaetz said he and his father had been approached by people claiming they could “make the investigation go away.”

In the interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday night, Gaetz said the “17-year-old girl” in the New York Times’ story “does not exist” and that the allegations are completely false.

Gaetz alleged that David McGee, an attorney at Beggs & Lane law firm and the former lead attorney for the DOJ’s Organized Crime Task Force, is the person who is trying to extort millions of dollars out of him and his family.

The New York Times confirmed in their report that no charges have been brought against Gaetz.

In a series of Twitter posts Tuesday evening, Gaetz released the following statement:

Over the past several weeks my family and I have been victims of an organized criminal extortion involving a former DOJ official seeking $25 million while threatening to smear my name. We have been cooperating with federal authorities in this matter and my father has even been wearing a wire at the FBI’s direction to catch these criminals.

The planted leak to the FBI tonight was intended to thwart that investigation. No part of the allegations against me are true, and the people pushing these lies are targets of the ongoing extortion investigation.

I demand the DOJ immediately release the tapes, made at their direction, which implicate their former colleague in crimes against me based on false allegations.

After the New York Times published their story, Democrat Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) called for Gaetz to be removed from the House Judiciary Committee.

    • He doesn’t even take pac money so he’s not indebted to anyone. They are targeting him because he’s very vocal against Biden

  1. It was leaked to further set up Gaetz… Do you want to bet that the FBI can’t find the wire tap tapes from his father’s working with them

  2. Ted Lieu… you and the entire Democrat Party are just a bunch of hypocrites. Nothing has actually been proven against Matt gaetz you’ve not even produced a shred of evidence yet Cuomo and Swalwell sit on your intelligence committees and as a senator you… you are nothing but I propaganda and disinformation pusher. I hope you go down in a ball of flames.

  3. We need to start standing up quick because gov’t control is taking over fast..We need Trump back. The Dems have gone madd!

  4. I do not believe Gaetz is involved in this kind of malarkey. The left is trying to get him out, so they can continue With they ‘re scandalous bull crap! Matt continues to represent “WE THE PEOPLE”. We should have more people just like Matt Gaetz.

  5. Hopefully his father used his own recording device so when the fbi loses their recording he cab provide a back up and an unedited one at that. I wouldn’t believe a single thing out of bidens fbi. Nothing.

  6. Tucker… what was weird about a man going on live tv and saying he is being extorted? Why didn’t Tucker end his story by saying “hey FBI release the wire tapes”

  7. This is total bullcrap!! There is no way Matt would do this. He doesn’t even take any money from anyone so he doesn’t owe anyone anything!! That’s why they are doing this as they want something on him.

  8. Well this is not new for The NY Times ! That rag has been solely responsible for pushing and catapulting every war since the Civil War.
    And responsible for the ruining of more lives than all the wars put together
    If anyone believes what that rag prints Then you are as sick and pathetic as-that rag is.
    Really get a grip. Reading propaganda and sitting in front of a boob tube is showing in our population All of which now Or either dumbed down or so full of hate they are acting out their crimes without consequences

  9. What I see is a Democrat party scared of 2022. In the last week I have received 3 glossy heavy stock flyers make selaiscious allegations against Republican assemblymen in our area. Democrats CLAIM that these Representatives organized the attack on the Capitol on Jan 6th. BS.

    Now it appears that the Democrats are in full Schiff-esk mode -manufacturing, fake allegations that slander and defame anyone whom they think may have a broader impact against the Dems.

    The time has come to start suing these people including the news organizations that perpetuate the falsehoods and the ad agencies that fabricate these stories.

    Enough is enough!
