“We are devaluing American money so rapidly that in America today, you can’t even bribe Democrat Senators with cash alone! You need to bring gold bars to get the job done, just so that the bribes hold value!” Gaetz declared.
That was an obvious reference to the indictment of Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ). The indictment alleged he took money from people for protection and favors, including for acting on behalf of Egypt. A search warrant allegedly turned up gold bars and jackets stuffed with cash in his home, a picture of which they included in the indictment.
