The View’s Meghan McCain is not buying Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)’s story about being extorted by someone in the Justice Department as an explanation for accusations that he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and that he traveled with her in a way that the law calls sex trafficking.
She started out saying there have been weird rumors about Gaetz and that he was the only person in Congress to vote against a sex trafficking bill last year.
She likened the situation to other Democrat scandals sexual misconduct scandals, saying, “He should certainly resign in the same way that I think Cuomo should resign. I think Eric Swalwell, who hasn’t denied sleeping with a Chinese spy, should be removed from the intelligence committee. I don’t understand why that’s not more of a scandal for Democrats.”
She also alluded to reports that Gaetz showed photos of women to others on the House floor, calling it “disgusting.”
“The most likely scenario is that Matt Gaetz slept with a 17-year-old and sex trafficked her, and he is probably gonna go to jail,” she concluded.
