Meghan McCain told her co-hosts Monday on ABC’s “The View” that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) should resign over the federal investigation into the congressman’s alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and allegedly paying other women for sex.
McCain said, “There have always been weird rumors about Matt Gaetz on Capitol Hill. He’s always had a weird reputation. I’m not surprised by this. I’m actually not. What’s particularly gross is he’s the only congressman to vote against an anti-sex trafficking bill that was on the floor last year.”
She continued, “He should certainly resign in the same way that I think Cuomo should resign. I think Eric Swalwell, who hasn’t denied sleeping with a Chinese spy, should be removed from the intelligence committee. I don’t understand why that’s not more of a scandal for Democrats.”
She added, “It’s particularly disgusting and vile given that Matt Gaetz is on the floor of Congress showing it to people … It’s discussing. I’m so sick of stuff like this, and he should be removed.”
She concluded, “The most likely scenario is that Matt Gaetz slept with a 17-year-old and sex trafficked her, and he is probably gonna go to jail.”
