Tucker Carlson had one jaw-dropping reaction to this interview with Matt Gaetz
Joe Biden’s Justice Department is reportedly investigating Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz on charges of sex trafficking a 17-year-old girl.
Gaetz appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show to try and clear his name.
And Tucker Carlson had one jaw-dropping reaction to this interview with Matt Gaetz.
Gaetz’s interview was a wild affair.
The Florida Congressman named a former Department of Justice official that Gaetz claimed was attempting to blackmail his family for $25 million and leaked the story that Gaetz was under investigation to foil a plot to catch the blackmailer in the act.
Gaetz also claimed that he never had any relationship with a 17-year-old girl and that Carlson met the woman in question when he and Gaetz went out to dinner two years before.
Gaetz claimed that woman was approached by the FBI and threatened to testify against Gaetz in this sex trafficking scheme or else they’d destroy her life.
Carlson said he didn’t remember a woman or the context of the dinner Gaetz was referring to.
After the bonkers interview, Carlson took a commercial break.
When Carlson returned from commercial, Carlson explained to his audience that his interview with Matt Gaetz was the most bizarre interview he ever conducted and that he had no more clarity on the story than before.
“You just saw our Matt Gaetz interview. That was one of the weirdest interviews I’ve ever conducted. That story just appeared in the news a couple of hours ago, and on the certainty that there’s always more than you read in the newspaper, we immediately called Matt Gaetz and asked him to come on and tell us more. Which, as you saw, he did. I don’t think that clarified much, but it certainly showed this is a deeply interesting story and we’ll be following it,” Carlson stated.
Gaetz claimed that Joe Biden’s Justice Department targeted him because Gaetz is a high profile Trump supporter.
Other Republicans are waiting for more information to come out before deciding what to do.
