The Orlando Sentinel reports:
Joel Greenberg, the former Seminole County tax collector who pleaded guilty to six federal crimes in May, has asked a judge to delay his sentencing until March 2022 as he continues to cooperate with federal authorities.
Greenberg is currently slated to be sentenced Nov. 18. But in a newly filed motion, his attorney Fritz Scheller said that Greenberg’s cooperation with investigators, which was a condition of his plea deal “cannot be completed prior to the time of his sentencing.”
“The parties expect that Mr. Greenberg will participate in additional proffers, and a continuance would provide Mr. Greenberg with additional time to do so prior to his sentencing,” the motion states.

Matt Gaetz just hired a criminal defense lawyer with expertise in cults and sex trafficking, but his wingman Joel Greenberg just got the court to delay his sentencing until at least next March.
This is VERY bad news for “Trump’s ultimate defender” @RepMattGaetz.

Two things are probably going on w/ Greenberg’s cooperation: 1) he is providing info about many targets; 2) DOJ wants to corroborate everything before proceeding w/ more indictments. I reiterate: Bye @mattgaetz & probably others.
