Matt Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend was granted immunity last week just prior to her testimony before a federal grand jury relating to the current sex-trafficking investigation into the Florida representative and politician.
According to The Post, although the Florida Republican’s ex-girlfriend has not been named, she has reportedly been granted complete immunity after alleging that she has information in connection to both the sex-trafficking investigation into her ex as well as an alleged obstruction of justice claim against Gaetz.
Investigators are reportedly trying to confirm whether or not Gaetz made a phone call to his ex-girlfriend and another woman who is also a witness in the case against him.
Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend as well as the other woman allegedly traveled with the politician to the Bahamas in 2018. They also allege that a third woman was on the trip and she was taking part in a sexual relationship with Gaetz at the time.
Although the third woman was reportedly 18-years-old at the time of the Bahamas trip, investigators are exploring whether or not the girl was 17-years-old when her sexual relationship with Gaetz first began.
As Radar previously reported, the Florida politician has been the focus of an investigation by the Department of Justice for almost one year, but that hasn’t stopped the embattled Gaetz from speaking out about the probe and denying any and all wrongdoing in connection to the possible sex trafficking and obstruction of justice.
“I might be a wanted man by the deep state, but I am a Florida man, and it is good to be home,” Gaetz said soon after the investigation against him was launched last year. “They will not silence me, we will not back down, and the truth will prevail.”
Isabelle Kirshner, the Florida Representative’s lawyer, also denies any wrongdoing and claims that she and her client are ready to fight back against any unproven allegations.
“We have seen no credible basis for a charge against Congressman Gaetz,” Kirshner said. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to challenge any allegations with facts and law.”
The probe into Gaetz also came following the arrest of his close associate Joel Greenberg, who pleaded guilty in May 2021 to charges of sex-trafficking a minor.
Although Gaetz himself has not been charged with any crimes relating to the case against Greenberg, investigators are also reportedly exploring whether or not he paid any women to cross state or national lines to have sex.
