CNN’s reporting this afternoon that federal prosecutors aren’t going to charge Matt Gaetz for sex trafficking: First on CNN: DOJ officially decides not to charge Matt Gaetz in sex-trafficking probe.
Here’s the bit that stuck out to me:
Prosecutors working on the case recommended against charging Gaetz in September, in part, because of questions over whether central witnesses in the investigation would be perceived as credible before a jury, CNN reported at the time.
Basically, they didn’t charge Gaetz because they weren’t sure they could get a conviction, not because they were sure he was innocent.
Cool. Cool cool cool. 😒
