Report: Matt Gaetz considering retiring from Congress to join Newsmax

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) has reportedly announced he is considering retiring from Congress to work for Newsmax, according to an Axios report.

Gaetz has told sources he may not run for a third term in 2022. He has already reportedly initiated discussions with Newsmax about joining the conservative network as a host or commentator.

Newsmax has quickly grown following the 2020 presidential election. Many conservatives sought an alternative to Fox News, claiming the network was leaving its values to appease mainstream viewers.

The growing conservative network has actively recruited other Trump allies in recent months. Andrew Guiliani, an adviser to former President Donald Trump and son of Trump attorney Rudy Guiliani, joined Newsmax earlier in March.

Sean Spicer, former White House press secretary for Trump, also joined Newsmax in 2020.

Gaetz has been known for his support of the former president. The Congressman also led the Republican effort to remove Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) after she voted to impeach Trump in January.

The report comes as Gaetz released a statement denying sexual misconduct allegations.

The Congressman will face many difficult decisions in the days ahead. In addition to deciding whether to run for reelection or to join Newsmax, other reports have suggested Gaetz may even move to Alabama in preparation for a future Senate run.

Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._

I think Gaetz would be a wonderful addition to Newsmax. I did see Laura Trump with Hannity tonight and she was absolutely awesome. Praying for change and strength in pursuing freedom and liberty.

I quit cable because of their rising rates every year and started streaming. I joined Amazon Prime, bought a fire stick and i get all kinds of shows including YouTube that shows Newsmax, with censored pictures of course.

Yes, but we need Gaetz in Congress or better yet, the Senate, more than we need him on Newsmax.

I think Congressman Gaetz would be a great addition to Newsmax. However, I would hate to see him leave Congress because he is one of the strongest supporters of the republican party. I truly don’t understand what he and his family are going through right now with the DOJ extortion issue. Seems like that the only people that get investigated are the Conservatives. Look at Hunter Biden. The DOJ and FBI knows Hunter illegally purchased a handgun and yet they refuse to do anything to Hunter. Double standard hypocrites.

Not to mention ALL the video’s and information on Hunter’s Laptop! Don’t hear anything about that either! ONLY Conservatives!! BIDEN crime family is alive and well……..well “alive” is another issue isn’t it?

HOW SAD it is that congressman Gaetz must consider leaving congress because of extortion. What is next? Once you get “guns out of Americans hands” will you start firing on congressmen? O WAIT YOU DID THAT ALREADY. What needs fixed is mentally ill system and prevention of allowing disturbed people purchasing GUND> It is not NRA members doing this you know

Yet another leak to the Times about an investigation going on for a year? An anonymous tipster source? Gaetz called the Feds in? Jesus H. Christ! A Republican? A conservative? Where’s Hunter!!?? More crap from the Left to take the heat off the border? AOC playing the race card again? Biden not telling the truth AGAIN by not telling the truth about his latest infrastructure plans . Taxes on taxes on taxes. What a legacy! Heil Biden!

What the hell is going on??? Anytime the “Republicans” get an anti-commie in the Legislature, they bail out! Gaetz is one of the few conservatives you could count on to tell people what was really going on. Hell, with this kind of turnover, we may as well just cash in our chips! One step closer to civil war.

Yes, we need Gaetz in Congress. I only watch Fox News. I was afraid I would have to give them up but they have hired Mrs Trump,Pres. Trump’s daughter in law, so I will be staying with them.
I live in Maine. We will not give up our gun(s). Just try to take them away from us. The LAW around here say they won’t. Try to take guns away from those guys and girls from the Western States. They are like Mainers.
