Rep. Matt Gaetz, R.-Fla., who has vowed to fight allegations of sexual misconduct against him, took to Twitter late Sunday to challenge a CNN report that he was denied a meeting with former President Trump at Mar-a-Lago.
“This is a total lie. I am on a pre-planned vacation with my fiancée. I was welcomed at Trump Doral days ago. No such meeting was denied nor sought,” he tweeted.
Gaetz is being investigated for his potential involvement in sex trafficking, The New York Times has reported, as well as allegations of payments to women for sex.

This is a total lie.
I am on a pre-planned vacation with my fiancée. I was welcomed at Trump Doral days ago.
No such meeting was denied nor sought.

When can we expect a retraction? https://t.co/6oaW7JlXUt

This @CNN story is complete fake news.
No such scheduling or meeting request was ever made, and therefore, it could never have been declined.
Take note that this story has zero on-the-record sources. It’s literally made-up.
