Rep. Matt Gaetz has gone on a tweet storm claiming he is the victim of extortion
after it was revealed he is under investigation for sex trafficking over
allegations he had a sexual relationship with a teenage girl, 17, and paid to
have her travel with him.

The Republican congressman and close ally of Donald Trump fired out a series of
tweets Tuesday claiming a former Justice Department employee had been trying to
extort $25 million from him and his family as he slammed the allegations as
'lies'.

Gaetz went on the defense after the New York Times revealed Tuesday the DOJ has
launched a probe to investigate whether he violated federal sex trafficking
laws.

The inquiry, launched under then-Attorney General Bill Barr, is said to be part
of a wider probe into Florida official Joel Greenberg, who was slapped with a
string of charges last year including sex trafficking a minor between the age of
14 and 17.

Two insiders told the outlet the investigation began during Trump's final months
in office. Gaetz, 38, is close to the former president and got engaged to food
analyst Ginger Luckey, 26, at his Mar-a-Lago club in late December.

No charges have been filed against Gaetz.

News of the DOJ probe came just hours after it was revealed Gaetz is considering
retiring from Congress and taking a job at the right-wing news outlet Newsmax.

Gaetz's alleged encounters with the 17-year-old girl took place around two years
ago with the DOJ investigation focusing on whether the lawmaker paid for her to
cross state lines, the Times reported.

Under federal law, it is a crime to transport someone under the age of 18 across
state lines, or coerce them to travel across state lines, to engage in sex in
exchange for money.

It is not clear when or how Gaetz met the teenager.

Gaetz, who was the only member of congress to vote against a largely bipartisan
human trafficking bill back in 2017, insisted the allegations are false and part
of a plot to extort money from himself and his family.
