It’s been 8 months since the NYT claimed the DOJ was investigating “whether” Gaetz committed crimes. He’s still not been charged with anything, and thus has no chance to contest the innuendo, yet millions believe he’s guilty. That why prosecutorial leaks are so abusive.
If there’s evidence of Matt Gaetz’s guilt, then charge him with crimes, accord him the due process guaranteed by the Constitution, and send him to prison if a jury of his peers finds him guilty. The day may come when that happens. But thus far, the only apparent criminality is by prosecutors who seemed to have leaked this investigation.
