About the q of whether Gaetz knew he was under investigation: I can see DOJ trying to keep it under wraps while Trump was in office precisely so he wouldn’t seek a pardon. But with his friend Greenberg being indicted in June, he had to have guessed he was being looked at. https://t.co/uRPtaivJXP

Some of the men and women took ecstasy before having sex, including Gaetz, two people familiar with the encounters said. In some cases, Gaetz asked women to help find others who might be interested in having sex with him and his friends

Matt Gaetz: "I have definitely, in my single days, provided for women I've dated. You know, I've paid for flights, for hotel rooms. I’ve been, you know, generous as a partner. I think someone is trying to make that look criminal when it is not." https://t.co/ZFbZaZ8ice
Very exciting set of Biden judicial nominees. In addition to some much needed diversity after Trump’s lily white picks, if he can break up the prosecutor to law firm to the bench pipeline, it will be one helluva legacy.
I remember reading The Last Picture Show as a teenager (after the Lonesome Dove craze) and being blown away to find someone had captured so well what it was like to come of age in West Texas. An incredible book about a place where time still moves slowly. RIP Larry McMurtry.
