    So now we know that the ex-girlfriend was granted immunity.  Not looking good for Gaetz

    so i estimate that they will arrest him in about 7 years or so.
    In 7 years, President DeSantis will issue a blanket pardon for Vice President Gaetz.

    Florida collectibles dealer connected to Gaetz probe to plead guilty

    A Florida collectibles dealer connected to the ongoing federal investigation into Rep. Matt Gaetz has agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit fraud and drug charges and cooperate with authorities.

    Joe Ellicott, known as “Big Joe,” was named on a federal grand jury subpoena in late December 2020 as part of a federal probe into alleged crimes “involving commercial sex acts with adult and minor women, as well as obstruction of justice.” Gaetz and several other men were also listed on that subpoena, POLITICO has previously reported.

    Authorities are investigating whether the Republican congressman from Florida had paid to have sex with a 17-year-old several years ago and obstructed justice. Gaetz has consistently denied any wrongdoing and previously told POLITICO that he barely knows Ellicott.

    Federal authorities in Orlando handled the prosecution of Ellicott, while prosecutors in Washington are responsible for the Gaetz probe. One of Ellicott’s attorneys, Joseph Zwick, said his client has not been arrested and could be sentenced as early as next week. He also said Ellicott is only loosely acquainted with Gaetz.

    Ellicott agreed to plead guilty earlier this week to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of distributing a controlled substance — Adderall. In exchange, Ellicott will “cooperate fully with the United States in the investigation and prosecution of other people” and to testify against them, according to his agreement.

    I think you have to think of this like the Jan 6 stuff.  The DOJ starts small and builds the case up.  They gain new information, witnesses, etc. to build the bigger cases.  Presumably, Gaetz is at or near the top of this little circle of pimps, and if that is the case, you would expect him to be charged last. 

    The analogy is like how Steward Rhoades was just arrested and received the most serious charges to date.

    From WaPo. You’re gonna want to shower after.

    Backstage banter

    Stone and Gaetz spoke bluntly as the congressman awaited his turn onstage. They discussed their mutual dislike of Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.). Stone called him “such an a--hole,” and Gaetz said he was “one of my least favorite people I’ve ever had to work with.” Stone mocked the hairstyle and suits worn by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), prompting Gaetz to reply: “Anybody that can land a wife like that needs no advice from me.” Gaetz remarked that his district was so conservative that he effectively never had to campaign for reelection.

    In the statement, Gaetz’s office said he stood by those comments.

    The pair went on to discuss a photograph of them posing with Joel Greenberg, then the tax collector of Seminole County, Fla. Stone said the photograph had “come back to bite us in the a--.” He did not elaborate. The Orlando Sentinel had reported the previous week that Greenberg had given publicly funded contracts to friends and associates.

    “Bite us in the a--?” Gaetz said. “I’m incredibly proud of that.”

    Greenberg was arrested the following summer and later agreed to plead guilty to six charges, including trafficking a 17-year-old girl for sex, and to cooperate with federal investigators on further inquiries. Those inquiries included the possibility that Gaetz had paid Greenberg to procure underage girls, The Post and others have reported. A Gaetz spokesman said the congressman never paid for sex and never had sex with a minor.

    Toward the end of the October 2019 recording, one of the Danish filmmakers made his way toward Stone with a camera.

    The discussion shifted largely to small talk such as a shared dislike of Washington. Gaetz quipped that to escape the capital, he might ask DeSantis to make him head of Florida’s juvenile justice agency, before reflecting that Trump would not permit him to leave.

    “He had heard a rumor that I was maybe not gonna run for reelection, and at the Christmas party, he berated me in front of my date. Like, straight berated me,” Gaetz said.

    Johnson, the emcee, who had drifted into the conversation, argued it was a “net positive” to be berated by the president in front of a date. “That’s an alpha move,” he said.

    Gaetz told The Post in an email, “While I did briefly consider joining the DeSantis administration, I ultimately decided against doing so out of fidelity to serving northwest Floridians in Congress.”

    During the October 2019 conversation, talk returned to Stone’s case and to his early morning arrest by the FBI at his Florida home that January. Stone and his supporters had publicly claimed to be outraged that, as a man in his 60s charged with nonviolent crimes, he was roused by heavily armed officers in a dawn raid. Because footage of Stone’s arrest was recorded by a CNN crew waiting outside, Stone alleged that investigators improperly alerted the media before his indictment was unsealed.

    “My suspect for who tipped the media off on that is you. You were my first suspect,” Gaetz told Stone backstage at AMPFest.

    “Come on, Roger, it was you,” added Johnson.
