Readers are doubtless familiar with the allegations against Republican congressman Matt Gaetz, who's been accused of sex with an underage girl and other moral transgressions. He's denied all the accusations, and counterattacked by alleging that his accuser is (or was) trying to blackmail him for large sums of money.
In such cases, one's tempted to disbelieve the denials, because so many people have "gone off the rails" in such matters . . . but Rep. Gaetz's accuser has just admitted, in court and under oath, to making false allegations of sexual criminal conduct against other opponents.
Greenberg, a Florida tax collector in Seminole County, pleaded guilty this week to a series of crimes. The corporate media is reporting on his plea deal with prosecutors and the implications for firebrand Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz. But there’s something else you need to know, and the media don’t seem keen to tell people.
Greenberg is the only person making accusations about Rep. Gaetz right now – two months in – and there’s plenty of evidence to suggest his animosity is driven by Gaetz’s refusal to get involved in Greenberg’s demands for a pardon from President Trump.
But take a look at Count Twenty-Four in Greenberg’s deal. It’s stunning, and it goes right to the heart of the allegations being made – mostly on the far-left Daily Beast website – about Rep. Gaetz.
Count Twenty-Four, which Greenberg has pleaded guilty to, establishes that Greenberg is a malicious and habitual liar who uses web publications to make false, criminal allegations about his political adversaries.
. . .
Perhaps one of the most concerning parts of Greenberg’s plea deal is that it promises him leniency if he provides information that leads to the arrest of another individual, which Biden Department of Justice prosecutors are desperate to make Rep. Gaetz.
But their whole case will rely on the stories of a man who has already pleaded guilty to making almost the exact same false allegations about others.
There's more at the link.
Might the (clearly and demonstrably partisan) Department of Justice, under the Biden administration, be trying to discredit one of President Trump's most outspoken supporters, purely for partisan political reasons? Would that be the reason for the plea deal his accuser has been offered? Surely not? Perish the thought!
Yeah, right . . .
Given the revelations about his accuser, it certainly looks as if Rep. Gaetz's vehement denials are more believable than most in such situations. If this is, indeed, proven to be a partisan political sting operation by the Department of Justice, heads should roll - but we all know that bureaucrats try to protect their own. Let's see what happens.
