In an article today in the New York Times, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz was said to have been under criminal investigation in the fall for sexual misconduct with a 17-year-old girl.  The alleged crime occurred approximately two years ago.

Rep. Gaetz (R-FL) wasted no time firing back on Twitter:

In an interview Tuesday, Congressman Gaetz said he had no plans to resign his House seat.  Gaetz has denied any romantic relationship with minors and said “It is verifiably false that I have traveled with a 17-year-old woman.”

During an interview with Tucker Carlson tonight, Rep. Gaetz accused a former DOJ official, “David McGee,” as being involved in the extortion plot.
