Mike Pence’s fmr chief-of-staff reportedly cozying up to J6 committee, makes UGLY claim against Matt Gaetz

Marc Short, the former Chief of Staff for Vice President Mike Pence, seems to have wasted little time in cozying up to the Left—appearing on CNN to trash Rep. Matt Gaetz, and reportedly testifying before a grand jury “investigating” the protests of January 6, 2021.

Short was seen last week alongside his attorney, Emmett Flood, leaving a District Court in Washington, D.C., where the grand jury was convening ABC News reported on Monday. That would make Short the highest-ranking person to cooperate with the partisan investigation, in which the Democrats have abandoned even the veneer of impartiality to attack their political enemies in a last-ditch effort before the mid-terms.

“There is a lot of speculation about what the Justice Department is doing,” Attorney General Merrick Garland, a reliable Democratic attack-dog, explained in a press briefing last week, “what’s it not doing, what our theories are and what our theories aren’t, and there will continue to be that speculation. We have to hold accountable every person who is criminally responsible for trying to overturn a legitimate election, and we must do it in a way filled with integrity and professionalism.”

Meanwhile, Short also took the time to appear on CNN to attack Florida representative Matt Gaetz who recently derided Short’s old boss when he spoke at the Turning Point USA conference in Tampa.

“Our America is proudly ultra MAGA, not some low-energy roadside RINO safari,” Gaetz said to great applause. “On that note, let me just say what everybody here knows: Mike Pence will never be president. Nice guy, not a leader.”

So it’s not surprising that Short, in loyalty to Pence, decided to fire back at Gaetz; what is surprising, and disappointing, is that he chose to repeat the unproven allegations of sexual impropriety that the Left—with tiresome predictability—have used to smear Gaetz.

“Well, I don’t know if Mike Pence will run for president in 2024,” Short told Erin Burnett on CNN’s “OutFront.”

“But I don’t think Matt Gaetz will have an impact on that. In fact, I would be surprised if he’s still voting. It’s more likely he’ll be in prison for child trafficking, and I’m surprised that Florida law enforcement allows him to speak to teenage conferences like that. So, I’m not too worried what Matt Gaetz says,” he declared.

The allegations against Gaetz have been denied by the lawmaker who claimed earlier this year that he was the victim of an “organized criminal extortion.”

It’s pretty standard stuff in the character assassination playbook, and the fact that Gaetz is now the subject of another perpetual federal investigation makes it far more likely the whole sordid business was confected by a weaponized DOJ to take down another enemy of the Democratic Party.
