The Daily Beast is reported that a witness who is cooperating with prosecutors can confirm that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) was told by former "wingman" Joel Greenberg that he'd had sex with an underage girl.

According to the Daily Beast's sources, the witness was in the same room with Greenberg when he called Gaetz and informed him that a woman they had paid for sex was under the age of 18.

The witness in question is talk radio host “Big Joe” Ellicott, who earlier this week pleaded guilty to charges of paying bribes and kickbacks, as well as illegally selling Adderall.

"While the sources did not know whether Ellicott had discussed the call with investigators, his account would likely be of critical interest, since it would match a key claim Greenberg made separately in a confession letter," The Daily Beast writes.

Ellicott is not the only potentially incriminating witness Gaetz has to worry about, as a grand jury earlier this month heard sworn testimony from one of Gaetz's former girlfriends, who was granted immunity in exchange for testifying.
