WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 23: Flanked by about two dozen House Republicans, U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) speaks as House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) (L) listens during a press conference at the U.S. October 23, 2019 in Washington, DC. Rep. Gaetz held the press conference to call for transparency in impeachment inquiry.

As Rep. Matt Gaetz faces a rising scandal over a Department of Justice investigation into allegations of sex trafficking and prostitution, he's settled on a clear strategy to fight back: Make this all about private lives and consenting adults while couching the broader probe as part of some sort of "deep state" effort to target him.

(CNN)As Rep. Matt Gaetz faces a rising scandal over a Department of Justice investigation into allegations of sex trafficking and prostitution, he's settled on a clear strategy to fight back: Make this all about private lives and consenting adults while couching the broader probe as part of some sort of "deep state" effort to target him.

There's a MASSIVE difference between Gaetz dating lots of adult women during his time in Congress and the allegations that the Justice Department is looking into.

Under this construct set up by Gaetz, anyone who calls on him to resign because of the allegations against him is just a part of the establishment -- the same people who twice impeached Trump and ignored President Biden's "Ukraine scandal. " (Note: It wasn't a scandal. )

To believe that Gaetz is being targeted unfairly, you have to believe that the Trump Justice Department under Bill Barr, which launched this investigation, is in on it with the current Biden Justice Department -- and they somehow coordinated all of this for months.

Look: The Justice Department is in the middle of an investigation into whether Gaetz's alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old broke federal sex trafficking and prostitution laws.
