Report: Matt Gaetz investigation now involves a missing FBI agent last seen 14 years ago

New details have emerged surrounding Rep. Matt Gaetz’s alleged extortion scheme that connects the investigation to an FBI agent that went missing in Iran 14 years ago.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that the Department of Justice was investigating whether Gaetz “had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and paid for her to travel with him.”

Gaetz has denied the allegations but said he is a victim of a purported scheme that was organized by lawyer David McGee.

According to documents released by The Washington Post, Gaetz’s father, Don Gaetz, was approached by two men who offered to help his son if he gave them a large sum of money to help locate Robert A. Levinson, an American hostage in Iran who disappeared in 2007.

Bob Kent, a former Air Force intelligence analyst, told Don Gaetz that he had a plan that could make Gaetz’s “future legal and political problems go away,” and claimed that Levinson was still alive.

Gaetz’s father was instructed to deposit $25 million in a trust account of law firm Beggs & Land, bearing the name of Levinson family attorney and former federal prosecutor David McGee.

Don Gaetz was suspicious of the proposal. Fearing his family was being extorted, he contacted the FBI.

Gaetz told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that his father was instructed by the FBI and the DOJ to wear a wire.

Gaetz said if the audio recordings were released it would prove his innocence and show the allegations against him were “merely intended to try to bleed my family out of money.”

McGee told the Post that Matt Gaetz’s allegations of extortion are “completely false.”

“It’s a blatant attempt to distract from the fact that he’s under investigation for sex trafficking of minors. I have no connection with that case at all, other than, one of a thousand people who have heard the rumors,” McGee said.

Chinese Spy Balloon: Tensions rise between the U.S. and China

A strange object was spotted Wednesday over Billings Montana. The Pentagon confirmed Thursday that the strange object was, in fact, a Chinese spy balloon. According to a report from KPAX, a western Montana news outlet, the balloon had been on the governments radar for days.

On Friday, the Chinese government released a statement saying that the balloon spotted in Billings is a “civilian airship” that’s sole purpose is used to collect research on weather and that it had just blown off course. The balloon was not shot down by orders of the Pentagon due to the risk of falling debris injuring people on the ground.

Sara Carter, who has spoken frequently on the Chinese government’s threat and expansion to the West, stated on Twitter that the United States has failed to stop China from purchasing land near military installations, vital agricultural land, as well as, allowing Chinese linked companies, such as Huawei, to install technology in cellular towers. Those cellular towers are located in Montana, along side more than 150 ICBM nuclear silos.

China said, “The Chinese side regrets the unintended entry of the airship into U.S. airspace due to force majeure.” Majeure meaning that it was out of there control. It blew off course due to limited “self-steering” capabilities according the Ministry. The ministry also stated that the balloon, “deviated far from its planned course.”

This incident is adding fuel to the fire of what is already a tense relationship between the worlds two largest economies. China already lays claim to approximately 80% of the South China Sea, and is seeking full control over Taiwan after assuming full control of Hong Kong. China’s belt and road initiative has invested copious amounts of money into building infrastructure in other countries and uses it as economic blackmail. China’s transportation of fentanyl into Mexico is yet again another example of how they are seeking to damage the US.

Is this just a weather ballon that blew off course? US officials at the White House seem to be unconvinced and will continue to monitor the balloon, as reported.

UPDATED: Statement from the Pentagon was jaw dropping when a reporter asked if the public has a right to know about Beijing’s balloon.

“The public certainly has the ability to look up in the sky and see where the balloon is,” a DOD official responded.
