Matt Gaetz suggests he wants to be America’s next attorney general: ‘A boy can dream’

US Representative Matt Gaetz, a far-right politician and staunch supporter of Donald Trump, has expressed his aspirations of becoming the next Attorney General of the United States. In an interview with right-wing network Newsmax on August 11th, Gaetz hinted that he could be appointed to the role if Trump were to regain the presidency. Defending a Republican-led investigation into Hunter Biden that has faced criticism, Gaetz suggested that a future attorney general, potentially himself, could pursue criminal charges in a future administration.

Gaetz stated, “I don’t believe that we should just stop sending criminal referrals because Merrick Garland may not prosecute them. We could submit criminal referrals to the Department of Justice, take back the White House, and you never know, David, it may be Attorney General Matt Gaetz or someone like me who will be there to enforce the law and ensure accountability.” His remarks were met with enthusiastic support from the Newsmax host, David Harris Jr., who expressed his approval of the idea of Gaetz as Attorney General.

Recognizing the challenges he may face, Gaetz acknowledged, “The world is probably not ready for that, and certainly Senate confirmation wouldn’t be feasible, but a boy can dream.” This comment came in light of Attorney General Merrick Garland’s recent appointment of a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden.

David Weiss, the US Attorney for Delaware since 2018, has been leading the investigation into Hunter Biden since 2019, before President Biden assumed office in 2021. While Weiss had not previously requested a special counsel designation, he sought it this week. It is worth noting that in July, Hunter Biden appeared ready to enter a plea deal regarding unpaid taxes and a firearm application. Congressional Republicans, Donald Trump, and his allies have been demanding further scrutiny into Hunter Biden, baselessly comparing his charges to Trump’s multiple indictments and extensive evidence against him.

In response to the plea deal, the presiding judge questioned whether it would prevent the federal government from prosecuting Hunter Biden for any future crimes he may have committed. Once Weiss concludes his investigation, he is obligated to draft a report detailing his findings.

The political landscape surrounding investigations into Hunter Biden remains contentious, with Republicans pushing for greater scrutiny and drawing comparisons to the investigations into Trump. Meanwhile, Gaetz continues to express his ambitions of becoming the next Attorney General of the United States, fueled by his loyalty to Trump and his unwavering stance on holding individuals accountable under the law.
