You sure Matt Gates isn't feeling very comfortable right now. What do you make of that development? Well, you know, Ryan, it's something that any of us who are involved with the federal judicial system saw coming. Quite a while ago, they superseded the existing indictment on Greenberg.

And so now they have him where they want every several defendant and that's in jail and the only way out for him is to begin cooperating because his guidelines and fairly severe given the nature of all the charges that are pending against them, not just the sex trafficking charge and that one carries a significant penalty to it. His only way out now is to cooperate against somebody else and that somebody else Escape, and so gate should be very worried about what Greenberg has to say. He's a corroborating witness.

"It's here now. So where are we? In the ongoing story involving Florida Congressman Matt Gates. This is not a topic for all years. It involves the Department of Justice investigation into trafficking a minor for sex, which Gates vehemently desire denies he did, but says the investigation has ensnared him. And then there was The New York Times reporting this week that a few months back, Gates asked around the trump White House for a pardon. For any crimes he may have committed. Yesterday, former President Trump denied Gates asked him. And then there are those allegations from congressional colleagues that he enjoyed showing nude pictures of girlfriends. While in the House chamber. Gates has been one of Trump's biggest defenders, and his rise. Sudden stall and possible fall is being watched closely. By Mark Caputo, NATIONAL POLITICAL REPORTER For Politico based in Florida, He joins us by Skype and Mark You call this an on Lee in Florida Drama of the DOJ actually started investigating Gates friend, former Seminole County tax collector Joel Greenberg. A guy who wants like to wear a law enforcement badge. He now faces a lot of federal charges. What's the latest on both of them? The latest is sort of two fold on Friday. Joel Greenberg's lawyers are going to appear in court and Some of them are telling us that they expect to announce that they're working out. A deal with prosecutors mean he's going to plead guilty. Quite yet. It's a 33 count wide ranging indictment. As for Gates, he has taken a page from the Trump playbook. He's been very vocal in denying that he is guilty of anything he is counter accused the Justice Department of running a smear campaign. Friday. He's going to be speaking before a trump supporting women's group at the Trump Darryl National Golf Course here in South Florida. So it gives you an idea of his sort of always on offense style. And a lot of people wouldn't even have known about this. If it weren't for Matt Gates coming out and talking about it so much saying, in fact, that he and his father were being extorted in a scheme to free a federal agent who disappeared years ago in Iran. It was, you know, his father was sent to a born a wire for the FBI to expose this extortion. The person that he claims was the extort. Er has completely denied it. By the way, do we know any more about that? You know, we know dribs and drabs. I mean, the reality probably uses that Don Gates. Matt gets his father, the former Florida Senate president did wear a wire. And there is an indication that that family was approached to provide some sort of financial help to free this spy or of this former federal agent who wasn't around or isn't around. Most people presume he's dead. It is, as you had mentioned it sort of the intro sort of on Lee in Florida story where all of a sudden a wide ranging corruption and sex investigation somehow becomes an extortion investigation involving Iran and, yes, Israel So they're all these very strange. Layers upon layers well, but there's no question that there is a DOJ investigation and that Gates was caught up in that. And as you said, he just has been, You know, pretty public about it. He went on Tucker Carlson's show on Fox. Carlson had a pretty puzzle look on his face the whole time and at one point when Matt Gates Talked about Don't you remember? We had a dinner together with me and my girlfriend and you and your wife and Tucker Carlson said he didn't remember and afterwards called it the strangest. Interview he'd ever heard. But you mentioned Greenberg's lawyers indicating that they're going to be meeting with officials is their sense. That this long time good friend of Matt Gates. Might somehow turn on him. If you're Joel Greenberg, and you're facing a 33 count indictment that charged you with everything from stalking money wandering sex trafficking of a minor. There's a high possibility you're trying to strike a deal. We're getting indications of that. The question is, is how believable is Joel Greenberg, the original charge he faced. That kind of began this broader investigation. Was he falsely smeared a political rival as a pedophile. So there's almost a Kafka esque nature of covering this right now where it's just almost allegation Anonymous allegation. That's one of the things that that Gates is also pointing out quite clearly, like Look, it's like day eight day nine. No excuses before there's no clear, cold and convincing evidence. So what's going on? When why haven't more of Congressman Gateses colleagues come forward to speak up for him? The reality is is mad. Gates was a young man in Congress and what's known for dating young women and in Washington, especially that was kind of looked down upon. The broader question is this mad Gates is not the kind of guy who makes lots of friends. By his own admission. He's in the minority of the minority in Congress. He's had lots of clashes with his own party. A lot of folks don't like him. That's for instance. Good example of why some of his colleagues have anonymously said Hey, he showed us this video of you know this naked woman doing the hula hoop. Unorthodox behavior or lewd behavior that Ah lot of people just looked out upon. And that's not a good way to get a lot of people to come, you know, rise to your defense at the same time No one in his own party is calling on him to resign. No one is publicly presuming him guilty. They're taking more of a wait and see approach. Mark Caputo, National.

Someday Matt Gates is even willing to leave his seat in Congress to defend Trump in the impeachment trial. And you know what is something about Matt Gates? He means it. This is why they're after Matt Gates. This is why Nancy Pelosi doesn't like Matt Gates. This is why the Penguin, a k a. Jerry Nadler refused. Matt Gates when Matt Gates asked if they could start their committee with the pledge of Allegiance, But because Democrats hate America, I'm sorry, they just do. Obviously the pledge of Allegiance wasn't necessary. Ah cording to the Penguin Jerry Nadler. Gates. Asked to open the judiciary meetings with the pledge, Nadler says Once the day is enough, we're covered. These people have a disdain for the flag. These people have a disdain for America. Sadly, they do. That doesn't stop Nancy Pelosi. That doesn't stop Nancy Pelosi from continuing to open that big flap of hers, and she's calling Kevin McCarthy out. She's calling Kevin McCarthy a coward. She's saying that you know for him to refuse to censure Marjorie Green. She said. Well, we'll take action against her. If you don't have the guts, because you're a coward will take action against Marjorie Green. Yet they don't take action against AOC, who basically said she was threatened in her life was threatened because she was in the Capitol building when she wasn't even in the building. Did you know that? Yeah, That's fact that's everywhere. That's why there's a trend that's going on on Twitter that she's at Alexandria Acacia Smollett. And she has flipped out because she's a liar. She was not in the Capitol building. Her life wasn't an eminent danger. But she went on, and she cried crocodile tears because she thought nobody would find out. And now she's having her representatives say No, you don't understand. She meant she was in the vicinity. No, That's not what she said. I think we all know that. Liar. Liar! Pants on fire. So if you want, Marjorie Green removed fine. Just remove AOC from committees as well. And then I'll be happy when you think that's fair friends. I mean, again, it goes back to what I was saying. In the first hour, Jen Psaki could make a gay slur towards Lindsey Graham, and she's let off the hook. Ale SI can lie. She's laid off the hook. Matt Gates asks for the Pledge of Allegiance. Jerry Nadler says no. Liz Cheney. Retains her power. And now you know why I'm so critical. Now You know why I'm so critical when it comes to not just the.

"As we continue. Congressman Matt gates is with us. All right. Let's go back to when you took this video that you tweeted out over the weekend. You went down. What did you see? And what happened? Well in the middle of the night, there were large trucks that were moving in and out of the Broward supervisor of elections office. I didn't vote that was voting. Equipment furniture. Valid or maybe nothing at all. But, but it was odd to me that with eighty thousand ballots appearing out of nowhere to have things moving in and out seemed to be something that I should document. So I pulled out my my phone video, and I began recording and the police with guns said to me that I had to move away that might standing in a in a in a firm place in recording was a safety hazard, and that I had had to leave the area that that just didn't inspire confidence in me that this was all on the up and up and chances are, you know, everything was okay. But gosh, I mean, do you really think that we ought to have armed police moot? Removing people who are simply trying to document what happened. I thought we were supposed to have election observers in all of this. And that was not the case either was it. Well, I mean, you know. When they're when they're counting the votes. There are people that are in the room. But Sean, I mean, there's no way to observe what's coming in and out of a truck in the middle of the night, especially when you've got tens of thousands of literally being spoken into existence that were initially reported by the supervisor of elections. And so, you know, I I just think that it's it's sort of got a banana Republic seal down in Broward County when the media's being threatened, you know, I'm a member of congress. What I was threatened to move away. And we're just seem to be no of cocktail or no explanation as to why. Appearing out of nowhere. All right. Congressman Matt gates keeps will you'll stay on it. We'll keep getting back to you until this is done. And I I have no faith no confidence at all in what's going on here. But we explained the whole pattern of of things that have happened in the past elections, including 2016 Bernie Sanders, including the phony dossier. All right when we come back. Michael Bornet is with us. He's the chairman of the Palm Beach county Republican party. He's gonna talk about what's going on there, including the lawyers for both mayor gillum, and for former Senator Nelson literally wanting to count the votes of illegal immigrants and objecting when the judge didn't agree to that.
