Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., will not be charged in connection with a federal sex trafficking investigation, according to lawyers involved in the case.
"To be fair, why expend resources prosecuting the privileged, when there's undoubtedly a minority out there with a small amount of pot?".
The investigation into Gaetz came after allegations emerged that the congressman had sex with a 17-year-old girl.
The Justice Department investigated whether Gaetz had paid or illegally trafficked the girl to have sex.
Considering the amount of evidence mounted against Gaetz, Greenberg's lawyer said he was frustrated that the DOJ dropped the case.
"We revealed a whole lot of evidence against Gaetz, including Venmos & a pardon letter Greenberg wrote to Donald Trump directly implicating Gaetz.
DOJ also seized his phone in its obstruction probe, but declined to bring charges, reportedly citing possibly problematic witnesses," he wrote. »
