DOJ prosecutors recommend against charging Rep. Gaetz in sex-trafficking probe

Prosecutors have recommended against charging Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz in a federal sex-trafficking investigation. Gaetz is seen here on Capitol Hill in September 2021.

Prosecutors have recommended against charging Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz in a federal sex-trafficking investigation, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The recommendation comes in part because prosecutors have questions over whether the central witnesses in the long-running investigation would be perceived as credible before a jury, the source said.

CNN's Tierney Sneed and Melanie Zanona contributed to this report.
