I haven't been following the Matt Gaetz story as I could, but reading yesterday's Washington Examiner article that shows documents about the alleged extortion scheme, these text message screenshots don't make sense washingtonexaminer.com/news/…
Documents detail wild alleged $25M Gaetz extortion scheme
Rep. Matt Gaetz possesses text message screenshots, an email, and a typed document that purportedly support his claims that a federal investigation into his relationship with a 17-year-old is related...washingtonexaminer.com
This is a screenshot from iMessage. At the top it says "DG" in a circle, and "Don >", meaning this is a screenshot of a conversation with the contact Don Gaetz. The message is on the left and gray, meaning this phone received the message, it didn't send it.

The article says Don Gaetz claimed to receive this text from Bob Kent. If this is a screenshot from Don's phone, why is this a convo with his own contact instead of with Kent's? If this were a screenshot from Kent's phone, why is this is a received message, not a sent one?
