I read that Fox is actually trying to ignore them as much as possible since neither is a good look for the GOP.

Career prosecutors recommend no charges for Gaetz in sex-trafficking probe

https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...x-trafficking/
Quote:
Career prosecutors have recommended against charging Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) in a long-running sex-trafficking investigation — telling Justice Department superiors that a conviction is unlikely in part because of credibility questions with the two central witnesses, according to people familiar with the matter.
New evidence could change the decision if they find any.

Gosh that other system of justice looks nice to be a part of. Is the prosecutor going to send him a gift basket with a written letter of apology next?

Yeah, I was fairly disappointed to read that news. At least it'll hang over his head for awhile.
