REPORT: Gaetz Told Trump “I Was Happy To Do It For You” During Discussion On Threatening Michael Cohen

Mediaite reports:

The Atlantic‘s Edward-Isaac Dovere reports that President Donald Trump spoke to Gaetz this week while he was still in Vietnam for his denuclearization summit with Kim Jong Un. Trump used this phone call to vent over Cohen’s congressional testimony against him, and according to Dovere, Gaetz said “I was happy to do it” when the president brought up the congressman’s threatening insinuations toward his former attorney.

Late yesterday Gaetz claimed he “personally apologized” to Cohen for the threatening tweet about his wife and family. That apology came after Gaetz showed up uninvited to smirk at Cohen from the back of the room during his House testimony. The Florida Bar is investigating Gaetz’s original and now-deleted tweet.
