Per the agreement, the feds agreed to drop 27 criminal charges against Greenberg. He will plead guilty to sex trafficking, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit a crime against the United States. 

Greenberg will work with prosecutors as they investigate other people involved in the crimes. He will be forced to turn over all evidence and information he knows about third parties. 

At the moment, the feds are reportedly looking into Gaetz. They believe he slept with a 17-year-old girl and paid for her to travel across state lines for the purpose of sex.

Sources say Gaetz would pick up young girls on sugar daddy websites. According to reports, Greenberg would pay women to sleep with both of them. 

Prosecutors reportedly have Venmo transaction records showing Gaetz send money to Greenberg. Moments later, Greenberg allegedly sent the same amount of money to three different alleged escorts.

In his plea, Greenberg agreed to testify against other individuals if prosecutors were to call him to the stand in court. 

Gaetz's friend admitted to spending over $70,000 on escorts. Prosecutors say Greenberg slept with a minor on multiple occasions. The first time they hung out he paid her $400. The payments continued as they hung out non-stop after the initial hang out. 

In court documents, prosecutors say, "Greenberg often would offer and supply the Minor and others with Ecstasy, which Greenberg would take himself as well. Oftentimes, Greenberg would offer to pay the Minor and others an additional amount of money to take Ectasy."

Gaetz has yet to be charged for any crimes. The Department of Justice is looking into whether he participated in any of these crimes. He denies all allegations of wrongdoing. The politician says he never paid for sex and scoffed at claims he partook in drug-fueled sex romps.
