BREAKING: Months After Being Accused of Sexual Misconduct, Matt Gaetz Exonerated After Man Charged with Extortion


Undoubtedly, you saw this story all over the news.

The leftists at CNN and other networks ran with this story as allegations of sexual misconduct were fired at Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz.

Today, Rep. Gaetz has finally been exonerated following false allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

The plot was devised by 62-year-old Stephen Alford to extort money from Gaetz.

Alford has been indicted by the Department of Justice for extortion. He has a background as a convicted felon.

Alford has been convicted of wire fraud, money laundering, investment fraud, and identity fraud.

The indictment states, “Stephen M. Alford did knowingly and willfully devise, and intent to devise, a scheme to defraud and for obtaining money and property by means of material false and fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises, and for the promise of executing such scheme, did cause, and attempt to cause, a wire communication to be transmitted in interstate commerce.”

In March, the Department of Justice announced it was investigating Gaetz for these allegations of sexual misconduct.

“The allegations of sexual misconduct against me are false,” Gaetz told Axios at the time. “They are rooted in an extortion effort against my family for $25 million.”

In September, Fox News reported that the investigation had taken a bizarre twist.

While under investigation by the FBI for various public corruption and public integrity issues, it was revealed that there is a possible connection between the sexual misconduct allegations and a missing FBI agent that went missing in Iran 14 years ago.

Air Force intelligence officer Bob Kent went to Gaetz’s family with claims that he had located the missing former agent, Robert Levinson.

Levinson’s family presumed the missing man dead. Kent sought out a $25 million loan to fund an operation to rescue Levinson.

“In exchange for the funds being arranged, and upon the release of Mr. Levinson, the team that delivers Mr. Levinson to the President of The United States shall strongly advocate that President Biden issue a Presidential Pardon, or instruct the Department of Justice to terminate any and all investigations involving Congressman Gaetz,” said the document provided by Kent.

The documentation was headlined the “Project Homecoming.” The document states that the FBI has learned of images of Gaetz in a “sexual orgy with underage prostitutes.”

The document requests that Gaetz’s father place $25 million in a trust account of law firm Beggs & Land that bears the name Levinson family attorney and former federal prosecutor David McGee.

Gaetz denies any wrongdoing amid the allegations and claims to be the victim of an extortion plot.

The New York Times reported that Gaetz is the subject of a federal sex trafficking investigation involving a then-17-year-old girl.

More from Fox News:

Gaetz told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that his family had notified the FBI about the alleged extortion, naming McGee as being behind it. Gaetz said his father had worn a wire during a meeting as part of an investigation of the extortion claim, and that he believes the Times story had been leaked in order to thwart that investigation.

McGee told the Daily Beast that the extortion allegations were “completely, totally false,” calling it “a blatant attempt to distract from the fact that Matt Gaetz is apparently about to be indicted for sex trafficking underage girls.”
