Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) is speaking out over the recent sexual misconduct allegations made against him.

During an interview on Tuesday, the Florida representative named former DOJ official David McGee as the man who is trying to extort him and his family.

Gaetz said the allegations against him are false and rooted in an extortion effort to smear his name for $25 million.

This came after a bombshell New York Times report detailed that Gaetz may be under investigation for sexual misconduct with a 17-year-old girl.

Gaetz confirmed he and his family have been cooperating with authorities for months. So far, no charges have been brought against him.
