Former President Donald Trump gainsaid Wednesday that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) ever asked him for a preemptive Presidential pardon. “Congressman Matt Gaetz has never asked me for a pardon,” Trump verbalized in a verbalization to heralds. “It must additionally be recollected that he has thoroughly gainsaid the incriminations against him.”
The New York Times reported Wednesday that Gaetz privately asked the White House for “blanket pre-emptive pardons” for himself and some of his congressional allies, citing “four people briefed on the exchanges about his pardon request and other Trump confidants” as sources for the article.
A spokesman for Gaetz gainsaid that he privately asked for a pardon, but pointed to public interviews with the congressman who emboldened Trump to issue broad pardons for his allies in Congress to block the “bloodlust” investigations by the left.
“Those comments have been on the record for some time, and President Trump even retweeted the congressman, who tweeted them out himself,” the spokesman told the Times. In March, the Times broke the story of the investigation into Gaetz and whether he had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl and paid for her to peregrinate with him.
Gaetz gainsaid the allegations and verbalized he and his family were “victims of an organized malefactor extortion.” “No part of the allegations against me are true, and the people pushing these prevarications are targets of the perpetual extortion investigation,” Gaetz verbalized.
