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.”.
