Matt Gaetz: Why Is He Being Investigated?
"Lots talk right now about florida. Representative matt gaetz. Why what is going on with matt. Gaetz matt gaetz seems to be in a lot of legal trouble is what's going on tonight. Florida congressman matt gates is defending himself amid reports. The justice department is investigating is alleged relationship with a seventeen year old girl. Investigators looking into the alleged relationship from two years ago whether gates possibly violated sex trafficking laws when he allegedly paid for travel and other expenses for the team all things. The republican strongly denies it as a horrible allegation and it is a lie. He's being investigated for payments. He may have allegedly made to women in exchange for sex in one case a woman who was under each seventeen years old in one sense. This is a pretty classic political sex scandal but the real reason it seems to have struck such a chord is that gates was one of the most bold outspoken defenders of former president donald trump who was of course plagued by scandal throughout his term in office gates was always there to say. Oh president trump was just being persecuted by the deep state. When robert muller leaves capitol hill. I think the american people will see that there was no collusion and there was oceans of bias and it turns out that the justice department has some questions for representative gates as well before we get into this sordid saga.

Republicans Work to Rebrand GOP as Party of Working Class

The working class vote will be crucial in next year's midterms. Here's npr congressional correspondent. Susan davis in the last decade. The biggest growth in the republican coalition has been white voters without a college degree along with some growth with similarly educated black and hispanic voters. that's why republicans. Like indiana congressman. Jim banks believe the only winning path forward for the gop is to fully reimagined itself as the party of the working class and if republicans want to be successful as a party when the majority in twenty twenty two win back the white house and twenty twenty four. I think we have to learn lessons that donald trump taught us now to appeal to these voters. Banks is the chairman of the republican study committee but conservative faction in the house. long rooted. in small government low taxes and social conservatism. He recently sent a six page memo to house. Minority leader kevin mccarthy making the case that republicans need to refocus their agenda. Almost entirely on working class appeals for banks. This means tougher immigration laws cracking down on china big tech and perhaps most provocatively for republicans corporate america for too long the republican party said into the narratives that republican party was party of business or the party of wall street. Republicans are increasingly comfortable attacking corporations these days. That's a lot easier for them. After wall street donors gave more to joe biden. Major companies halted political donations to republicans who objected to electoral college results on january six and is companies take more liberal positions on controversial issues like georgia's new voting law senate minority leader mitch. Mcconnell last week issued a rare verbal rebuke of companies that oppose the law. Warning if you will to corporate america's to stay out of politics. It's not what you're designed for.

"Be a lukewarm reception. And the place was thunderous in its applause. A prolonged standing ovation. When the first president bush took the stage. And i remember thinking wow if he was his popular out of the ever lose it election but i just point out that there is a nostalgic for the previous administration because inevitably things go wrong with the incoming administration Not that i'm wishing for that to happen. But it's it is just an an inevitable fact of governing. Things never go the way you quite intended for them too. So i would expect that.

What the natural inclination of the The democrats is they are going to want to solidify their games. Whether that statehood for dc whether that changes in in voting laws and making federalizing the elections there are all kinds of things that are on the wishlist of democrats to do Republicans will have to be smart about how they how they talk about this and how their opposition to this.

That is what this election is about now how? Do you judge what's happening with bite. I've never seen this before he. You know his economic czar is Bolshevik Bernie plagiarizing actually his own words and socialism afc the new green deals are Biden's pledging trillions to that madness? The guns are is on I'm not sure this will go over well in the great state of Ohio, the Great Americans that live there. To confiscate guns, and then you've got Pelosi Schumer Biden one, hundred, twenty, five years of failure I've never seen a candidate go so hard core radical left and he has yet to say a word of support for police officers except to say the enemy and they're attacking innocent peaceful protesters. It's scary I think the American people see it you've described it. So accurately, that's what steak and I think when you boil it all down is it really who can keep America America? WHO CAN SAVE AMERICA? Who can who can protect the values that made us the greatest nation ever Joe Biden all the radical things you just described or president trump who truly had America great again prior to this. Virus. We've got the comeback started the great. American.

A higher population of older people and I know the media down there has been trying to scare people. But the one thing that that Rhonda Santa's nail that everybody else got wrong is protecting the elderly population nursing home population, the villages down there and unlike Cuomo and and let's see wolf and Murphy and Whitmer. You know these executive orders in these states allowing Cova patients in need long term care facilities killing. Thousands and thousands of innocent people. I mean the dumbest decision ever. Forty six days. Forty six straight days governor Cuomo sent Kobe positive patients back in a nursing homes unbelievable. That is unbelievable and other Democrat governors did the same thing and yet the press doesn't WanNa talk about their to too busy talking about peaceful protests that we know are anything but peaceful that that is unbelievable and of course, they attack do San as a governor defendant in Florida every day instead of pointing out the facts and the truth. Well how do you assess this election? One, Ninety, seven days away? No Republican for Donald Trump to win reelection you've got to run the table we always have to run the table It doesn't start out without fifty five electoral votes in California and then Washington State and Oregon Illinois and New York and New Jersey that's a lot of electoral vote advantage for any democratic.

We're gonna call them out on the record. Question. But sir, that's his record. I'm talking about his net worth. And that's a fact. Well, look to the point of your question. I think that all committees and all spenders out there that are investing in campaign ads across the country that they need to be respectful of that tone. But I would agree with Steve that when we're looking at voting records that I think that that is fair game as well. And that we need to make sure that we're all looking to see how we can make sure that we're having a conversation with the American people.

Yes, you've talked about the economy. Yes, you've talked about healthcare immigration. But to what degree is this election really about Donald Trump, either pro or against Congressman Lewis.

There's no one that's going to talk more about Donald Trump and Donald Trump, which gives our democratic candidates the opportunity to connect with their personal stories and talk about an agenda that is built around for the people and how we're going to be able to help lower prescription drug prices, lower healthcare costs move, a strong infrastructure package and clean up. Washington. DC with all the corruption. Our candidates are doing well. And it's because of our candidates that Democrats will win the majority in the US house of representatives chairman stivers. You have thirty seconds. Well, I think this election is about results versus dysfunction. I already talked about our economic success. We have more to do on infrastructure lowering health care costs but the dysfunction. The other side would bring their healthcare agenda would kick one hundred seventy nine million people off their insurance and bankrupt Medicare on day one. It's they have an agenda that's outside the mainstream. They want to abolish ice they want to not per se. Caravan of people coming all, right? I knew we weren't going to settle things here. But we appreciate both of you coming on German Luan chairman stivers. Thank you Bill. Thanks for your time, and these closing days of this heated campaign. Thank you so much for having us Chris coming up, which issue we'll have the most traction in the midterms healthcare immigration.

He is congressman from upstate New York who today was arrested and charged with securities fraud related to charges of insider trading on a drug company that you heard him talk about their innate. He's a man who is a very fierce advocate for the president United States, his first congressional endorser today, he laid out a bit of explanation. He says of his long standing backing of the company and then did something that I don't think is going to work for that long which was he said he would answer no more questions over the fact that he is currently facing federal felony charges and was caught on tape at a White House congressional picnic on the phone at the time that the government says he was illegally tipping off his son and others that the drug company he'd invested in had failed to clear a key clinical trial leading them to dump their stocks for the latest on this remarkable turn. Events and the charges against the president's first endorser congressman. Chris Collins, I'm joined by Jonathan dean, sees the chief investigator reporter for w here in New York. I that press conference. Did you think there was any chance he was going to resign? No. He had said all day through his spokesman that he was going to stay in this race that he was going to seek reelection and that these, this indictment, these charges against him were not going to stop him. His, let's start here and say this. He laid out in that press conference. He's been known around town that he has a relationship with this drug company. He was caught boasting once in the speaker's gallery saying, I've made so many millionaires in in in buffalo because of connecting people with this company. What is his relationship to the company? Well, he sits on the board. He invested. Bought millions of shares was selling at about fifty cents a share when he got that Email at the White House, advising him that the clinical trial in this company to come up with a cure or assist multiple sclerosis patients that trial had failed and that this drug was the only drug that this company was basically researching. This was the whole ball wax. And as soon as you learned that he apparently panicked the FBI and US attorney saying he was called his relatives who had invested stock in this company and told them what the situation was, and they began selling over a million shares sold. And then after the news became public, that fifty cents a share of stock dropped. Ninety ninety two percent to just pennies on the dollar. And you know. So these. Okay. So the charging is it got us arrested today? Right? Tell until then AM processed fingerprinted Mochizuki sitting member Republican member congress. He served on housing entity committee until today when he was kicked off a prominent support of the president. Do we have the video of him by the way at the White House or do we just have that that we just showed? I mean, the gyrating he is at the White House congressional picnic, that's right with the president nights saints last year, according the charging document, he gets an Email in his role as board member saying the trial failed. And then what does he do? And then according to charge attorney, he started calling his son frantically six calls in less than five minutes and he couldn't get through. Finally, on the seventh attempt, the feds say, he got through his son and said, this whole thing's going down, you need to. We need to do something and within hours his son was selling off his shares. The sun allegedly told other relatives, fiancee, his soon to be. Father in law mother-in-law who happens to be a certified public accountant, and they all begin dumping their shares word of mouth spread among the close knit relatives. Three people charged today the congressman, his son, and the would be father in law. And there's also a unindicted co-conspirator that exists in the charge document as well. That is correct.
