“Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz’s campaign committee lawyer is demanding CNN retract its story claiming former President Donald Trump denied a meeting with the lawmaker amid sex trafficking allegations, the Daily Caller has learned. CNN’s article, written by Gabby Orr, Dana Bash and Kevin Liptak describes how Gaetz ‘was recently denied a meeting with’ Trump at Mar-a-Lago ‘as the ex-President and his allies continue to distance themselves from the’ congressman. The accusation comes as Gaetz is under federal investigation” the Daily Caller reports.
“The story cited ‘two people familiar with the matter’ and ‘Friends of Matt Gaetz Campaign Committee’ lawyer Geoffrey R. Johnson slammed the network – in part for its use of anonymous sources – in a letter demanding a retraction. ‘The April 11 story, like previous CNN stories about Rep. Gaetz, relies solely on anonymous sources, and propagates a false narrative that Rep. Gaetz is being isolated and abandoned by former supporters, including former-President Trump,’ the Monday letter to CNN, obtained by the Daily Caller, reads.”
So yeah, it sure says a lot about where Gaetz’s priorities are these days, that he needs to demand a retraction of the reporting that Trump didn’t want to meet with him while he’s under federal investigation for sex trafficking and not the reporting from say, the New York Times, that said he’s under federal investigation for sex trafficking. He could also just post a pic of himself with Trump at Mar-a-Lago conspicuously holding a copy of that day’s newspaper or a TV on in the background to date the photo. That would really own those DNC-Soros paid “fake news” assholes at CNN.
