Rep. Matt Gaetz hires defense lawyer Marc Mukasey, who represents Trump Organization in criminal pro

Rep. Matt Gaetz has hired two top New York defense lawyers — one of whom currently represents the Trump Organization in an ongoing criminal probe — to represent him as the Florida Republican faces a federal sex trafficking investigation.

The retention of the Trump firm’s lawyer Marc Mukasey is noteworthy not only for Mukasey’s track record of handling serious criminal cases, but also because former President Donald Trump has counted Gaetz as among his most ardent defenders.

The moves came as a lawyer for a friend of Gaetz, Joel Greenberg, indicated Thursday that Greenberg plans to plead guilty in a federal case where he has been charged with sex trafficking of an underage girl, wire fraud, stalking and trying to bribe a federal official.

1. I have a big hunch Dump is invoked in Gaetz's schemes...

Which is why there’s no comment ever from him and they’re using the same attorney. That quite a coincidence, otherwise.

2. But Matt hasn't done anything wrong!

Or so he keeps telling anyone who will listen. I wonder why he doesn't just come clean and make a public statement explaining all the wrong he hasn't done and put this whole kerfuffle to bed (so to speak)?
