Man accused of trying to extort Matt Gaetz admits he asked for money:
The man accused of trying to extort Rep. Matt Gaetz admitted Monday that he asked for money, but insists he wasn’t trying to blackmail the embattled Florida Republican.
Bob Kent, an ex-Air Force intelligence officer, acknowledged that he did ask Mr. Gaetz’s father, Don Gaetz, for money last month.
In an interview with Sirius Radio host Michael Smerconish, Mr. Kent said the funds were to pay for an effort to return Robert Levinson, a former FBI agent who disappeared in Iran in 2007. Although the FBI agent is believed to be dead, Mr. Kent says he has video evidence that Levinson is alive and being held captive.
Mr. Kent said he met with Don Gaetz, a former Florida politician on March 17 and told him he was aware of his son’s “legal issues.” Helping to rescue Levinson, he said, would “generate goodwill.” --->READ MORE HERE

Man Behind Alleged Gaetz Extortion Scheme Admits Wanting $25 Million:
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has claimed that the sexual misconduct allegations made against him were part of an extortion scheme, and Bob Kent, one of the men allegedly involved in the scheme, all but confirmed in an interview on “The Michael Smerconish Program” on SiriusXM radio on Monday that he had asked Gaetz’s father for $25 million—but insists it was not extortion.
Kent says he needed the money to help find FBI agent Robert Levinson, who went missing in March 2007 and is presumed to be dead by his family, but Kent claims he’s seen video evidence that Levinson is alive in Iran.
“Matt Gaetz is in need of good publicity, and I’m in need of $25 million to rescue Robert Levinson,” Kent said on the show, and acknowledged that he asked Gaetz’s father for the money. --->READ MORE HERE
