    Matt Gaetz Associate Joel Greenberg To Plead Guilty, Cooperate : NPR
    A former Florida politician who is a key figure in the investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz will plead guilty to sex trafficking of a minor and other offenses and has agreed to cooperate with federal investigators.

    According to a copy of a plea agreement filed in federal court Friday, Joel Greenberg will plead guilty to six charges: producing a false identification document, identity theft, wire fraud, stalking, conspiracy and sex trafficking of a minor.
    What will he say about Matt Gaetz? That should be interesting to see.

    It could be glorious.

    Gaetz is a troll pretending to be a Congressman.

    Unfortunately there are way too many of those in Congress today. It will only be a drop in the bucket when he is removed from office and sent to prison.

    He is an outlier.

    There is a lot of his nonsense out there.

    He takes trolling to a new level.

    There is nothing serious about the overgrown little boy.

    I just watched an interesting video:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkF7Di42beo

    It claims that Greenberg asked Roger Stone for a pardon (and took screenshots of private e-chats with Gaetz for Stone to show Trump!). But Stone got back to Greenberg and told him that his buddy Matt Gaetz did not want Greenberg to get a pardon. (I suppose because then Greenberg could testify against Gaetz with impunity?)

    Is the video from RT news? Does this mean Putin is throwing Gaetz under the bus also?

    While The Daily Beast could not confirm that Gaetz and Zalonka had sex that night, two sources said the pair had an ongoing financial relationship in exchange for sex. "She was just one of the many pieces of arm candy he had,” said one source familiar with the encounters between Gaetz and Zalonka.
    I can understand the allure of illicit sex, but what's with hiring pros as arm candy? Is Gaetz showing off that attractive girls like to date him? Or showing off that he has the money to hire pros?

    ETA: Yes, Zalonka is the one who had the no-show job at Greenberg's government Tax Office. IOW, Florida taxpayers were helping to pay this hooker's fees!

    Matt Gaetz associate pleads guilty in sex-trafficking case, will cooperate with feds
    "Guilty," Joel Greenberg repeatedly said to six of the 33 charges initially filed against him in federal court in Orlando.


    Wearing a jail jumpsuit and a blue surgical mask and in shackles, Greenberg admitted his guilt to six of the 33 charges initially filed against him — identity theft, stalking, wire fraud, conspiracy to bribe a public official and sex trafficking of a minor.

    Asked by the judge in Orlando federal court if all the counts against him were factual, he repeatedly said “yes” and “I do.”

    Greenberg's plea could spell trouble for Gaetz. Greenberg is an associate of the Florida Republican congressman, and federal officials are looking into whether the two used the internet to find women they could pay for sex and whether Gaetz had a sexual relationship with a minor he paid to travel with him, The New York Times reported, citing three people briefed on the matter.

    Gaetz, an outspoken supporter of former President Donald Trump, has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and has not been charged with any crime.
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    Wonder why she’s talking now? Is something Greenberg saying making a case for her to reach a deal? Or is she just a straight up witness to his crimes? He’s been pretty sloppy, so it could be she’s just a witness.

    I doubt she has any criminal culpability that might make her need "to make a deal". She was an "intimate partner". This means she has been inside his Washington apartment, the bedroom and the bathroom. She's probably spent time in his Florida home, as well. Intimate partners see a lot and know a lot. They are privy to secrets and listen to conversations. There's no end to the loose threads this woman could tie up in a nice bow for the prosecutors.

    Yeah, I mean, it could be as simple as "He claimed to be with you in this State at this time, is that true?"
