Greenberg told investigators that the Florida Republican and at least two other men had sexual contact with a 17-year-old girl.

Gaetz has denied those claims.

“I’m not too worried about Joel Greenberg,” Gaetz told Newsmax last week.

Joel Greenberg is now literally in jail for initially accusing someone innocent of having a relationship with a minor. That wasn’t true, it was just a fake thing that Joel Greenberg had said and that got him in quite a bit of trouble. ‘

Gaetz told The Post that he has not formed an exploratory committee for a bid for the White House in 2024.

But he has gained experience on the campaign trail.

He joined Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, another controversial member of the party, attends rallies in Florida and Arizona with more events scheduled.

And earlier this year, he traveled to Wyoming, the home state of Rep. Liz Cheney, to rally against her after breaking up with the party and voting to impeach Trump.

Cheney has since lost her No. 3 leadership position in the House GOP due to continued criticism of Trump.

Cheney also told The Post she is open to running for president in 2024.

Another source told The Post that Gaetz could be assisting another prominent Florida man – Republican State Governor Ron DeSantis.

Gaetz could play attack dog for DeSantis and take out other members of the party when there’s a busy Republican primary, like New Jersey Governor Chris Christie did for Trump when he went after Florida Senator Marco Rubio in a New Hampshire debate. in 2016.

Trump has not officially announced that he will run for president again in 2024, but has hinted that he would.
