GAETZ, TRUMP DEFENDER
Politico has made a noteworthy designation on it’s annual “Power List” of those who will play a critical role on the “political landscape” as the presidential election approaches.
“Rep. Matt Gaetz isn’t disappearing from your TV screens anytime soon. The controversial Florida Republican and ardent Donald Trump supporter, who just won re-election, will continue making his plea to protect the president on any news channel that will have him in 2019,” explains Politico. “With Democrats holding the House majority, he thinks it’s only a matter of time until House Democrats try to impeach the president. And Gaetz will be there to defend him.” Indeed, the lawmaker plans to help Mr. Trump. “He needs a capable defense on the Judiciary Committee to show what a witch hunt this truly is. I feel a real sense of obligation to provide that defense,” Mr. Gaetz told Politico, adding “I intend to be making the president’s argument, forcefully, frequently and in the mediums that are consumed by the American people.”.
