New details in the scandal surrounding Florida congressman Matt Gaetz are shedding light into the influence of Israeli operatives over American affairs and the depth of corruption in the US government.
In text messages publicized by Dilbert creator Scott Adams, the Israeli consulate's media director Jake Novak informed him of secret grand jury proceedings tying Gaetz to sex with minors and a murder conspiracy days before the New York Times reported that he was under investigation.
Gaetz holds that he and his father, Don Gaetz, are being extorted by former federal prosecutor David L. McGee and ex-Air Force intelligence official Bob Kent.
McGee and Kent, operating as intermediaries, demanded the Gaetz's provide them with $25 million dollars to fund an unlawful operation to rescue Robert Levinson, a rogue Jewish CIA agent captured in Iran. Levinson, who vanished in 2007, was presumed dead, but the Israelis believe he is still alive.
The Israeli operative Novak owns the illegal operation in his private exchange with Adams.
"The backstory is this is screwing up my efforts to free Bob Levinson. Gaetz's dad was secretly finding (sic) us. So I'm very much wanting this to be untrue. I've got a commando team leader friend of mine nervously waiting for wire transfers to clear," Novak wrote.
A March 16th blackmail note provided to the Washington Examiner by Don Gaetz shows Kent offering to secure a Biden administration pardon for Matt if he quickly ponies up the cash.
"I would like to talk with you immediately about the current federal investigation, and the indictment that is about to be filed against your son.
I have a plan that can make his future legal and political problems go away.
Last summer, we located Robert Levinson in Iran and took two proof of life videos, but the U.S. government foiled our rescue attempt. We have one more opportunity to rescue Levinson." Kent goes on to claim that financing them will make all their problems vanish.
The Gaetz's took the threats to the FBI.
The elder Gaetz volunteered to wear a wire to the meeting with Kent and McGee in hopes of building a case against them. As Gaetz prepared to transfer a $4.5 million dollar down payment on the bribe to catch the men in the act, the blackmailers were tipped off by officials inside the Department of Justice who got the New York Times to publish that Gaetz was subject to a federal probe -- effectively blowing the entire extortion investigation.
The entire affair as it has unfolded so far shows that this style of Israeli-linked intrigue didn't die with Jeffrey Epstein.
Rep. Gaetz continues to deny having sex with minors, allegedly procured by former Seminole County Jewish tax collector and accused child sex trafficker Joel Greenberg.
Nevertheless, a story published today in the Daily Mail claims that Greenberg is a linchpin in the case against Gaetz and that the congressman's arrest is "imminent."
