Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who is currently under investigation for an alleged inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old girl, reportedly showed nude photographs of his partners to his colleagues in Congress.
According to CNN, who is citing sources, Gaetz ‘gained a reputation in Congress over his relationships with women, and even showed fellow lawmakers some nude photos of women he said he slept with.’
The report says photos seen on his phone included a naked young woman in a hula-hoop.
“We should be very clear from the top, this is a separate issue than the DOJ investigation that is ongoing right now,” CNN’s Lauren Fox reported. “When Matt Gaetz was a new member of Congress, he earned a reputation quickly of being a close ally of former President Trump’s. He liked to be in the limelight of the media. He also, according to multiple sources CNN spoke with, behind the scenes likes to show his colleagues photos and brag about sexual exploits he had with women.”
“Three sources told CNN this was something that Gaetz did, and two of these individuals had seen these images firsthand,” Fox said. (video below) “One of these individuals said they saw this image, Matt Gaetz shared this image with them, a nude photograph on the House floor. One said they had seen an image Gaetz shared with them just off the House floor, but still at the U.S. Capitol. CNN reached out to Gaetz for comment. We have not heard any response from either Gaetz nor his office. Obviously this is a significant development given what is going on with the DOJ investigation.”
“It was a point of pride,” one of the ‘sources’ said of Gaetz to CNN.
It is not known if this reported conduct is under review in the Justice Department’s probe.

Gatez says he's "absolutely" confident none of his relationships have been with anyone underage:
"I’ve paid for flights, for hotel rooms. I’ve been, you know, generous as a partner. I think someone is trying to make that look criminal when it is not."https://t.co/mrrJR6CRUP
