Matt Gaetz & Marjorie Taylor Greene run out of their press conference by protesters.

MATT Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor Greene were run out of their press conference by protesters including one with a Donald Trump effigy.

The Republicans were holding the event at the Department of Justice when it was derailed by a man in yellow blowing a whistle under his face mask.

After the lone protester "entirely drowned out the GOP members," according to Salon reporter Zachary Petrizzo, Gaetz and Greene were quickly rushed out of the presser.

The pair were quickly escorted into individual cars by their team, but Gaetz received more abuse.

"Are you a paedophile?" one protester repeatedly shouted. The representative continued toward his car in silence.

Federal prosecutors are examining whether Gaetz paid underage girls or offered them gifts in exchange for sex, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Investigators have also been looking at whether Gaetz and his associates tried to secure government jobs for some of the women, the people said.

They are also scrutinizing Gaetz’s connections to the medical marijuana sector, including whether his associates sought to influence legislation Gaetz sponsored.

The people had knowledge of the investigation but were not allowed to publicly discuss the ongoing investigation and spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.
