During the final weeks of President Donald Trump's administration, Rep. Matt Gaetz asked the White House for a blanket presidential pardon -- a request that was ultimately not granted, the New York Times reports.

LOL at all these idiots who thought going to bat for Trump would benefit them.

"This request doesn't in any way suggest my client is guilty of anything!"

Pedo-Gaetz is the second best part of 2021.

The first part is not having the bloated orange bag of triglycerides in office.

Nixon the vaccine is the best part of this year.

Trump's being out of office and this Scandal are just the icing on the cake.

What does it say about the morality of rightwingers that Gaetz is a beloved hero and leader of rightwingers?

Only people who have committed Federal crimes want pardons from the President.

I dunno. Hard to see how any man who rattles on and on about hypocrisy should give a damn,

...Because people who haven't done anything wrong seek blanket executive pardons all the time.

That your best swing at this? Pardon acceptance requires admitting guilt. So what did Gaetz do he wanted a "blanket" pardon for? TBD? lol Sorry but that was idiotic post.

Gaetz keeps implicating other people in his investigation, first it was Tucker Carlscum and his "wife" in quotes because a former Republican pundit commented that perhaps Tucker acted like he didn't recall that dinner with Gaetz because the woman he was with was not his wife? Now the pedo is implicating fellow members of congress. The FBI will have to interview Gaetz' "friends" in the house. Fortunately that list is very short, probably just Gym Jordan and Devin Nunez. I'm not sure that even Gohmert is stupid enough to pal around with Gaetz. I know Leatherface Greene has somehow defended a guy soon to be indicted for sex trafficking of a minor, but she's one of his newer pals.

I can just see Gaetz come-on to women:

Hi, I'm Congressman Matt Gaetz.

Wait you look like somebody famous.

I know, people always confuse me for Colin Jost of SNL.

No that's not it...I know, you look just like Beavis of Beavis and --------, only with about half the brains.

Haha pathetic.

Look how desperate you are to get people to ignore evidence that one of your party's rising stars, and trump's biggest allies, is a criminal.

Funny how there weren't a bunch of democratic politicians scrambling for pardons from obama isn't it?

It's funny everyday more bad news on this scandal comes out. It's almost like the NYT has it mapped out, drip, drip, drip. Pedo Beavis is swirling the bowl, now he can't even get a media job self-OAN or SpewsMarx. Hey Gaetz, better get a Dotard tramp stamp, it'll make you less attractive from behind in prison.
