Matt Gaetz Says He Won't Resign Over 'False' Sex Allegations'
He denies sleeping with underage girls in a column written for the Washington Examiner.
Embattled congressman Matt Gaetz says he will not resign from Congress. The Florida Republican made his statement less than a week after reports emerged that he's under federal investigation for possible sex crimes.
Gaetz wrote a column that appeared Monday in the Washington Examiner, a conservative news outlet. Gaetz denies accusations that he “slept with” an underage girl.
He also suggests he’s being targeted by political foes because he “loathes the swamp.”
The 38-year-old has been one of former President Donald Trump's most loyal defenders.
So far, Gaetz has received almost no public support from other congressional Republicans, and none from Trump.
