The former DOJ official that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) accused on Tuesday night of allegedly trying to extort money from his family responded to Gaetz’s allegations by saying that Gaetz’s allegations were false and an apparent attempt to distract from upcoming legal issues.
David McGee, a former federal prosecutor, told The Daily Beast that Gaetz’s allegations were “completely, totally false,” and that they were “a blatant attempt to distract from the fact that Matt Gaetz is apparently about to be indicted for sex trafficking underage girls.”
McGee was responding to accusations Gaetz made on Fox News’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” with host Tucker Carlson. Gaetz said that McGee was involved in an “extortion scheme” that involved “demanding a meeting” with Gaetz’s father where $25 million was demanded “in exchange for making horrible sex trafficking allegations against me go away.”
