Just more criminal conduct on the part of Republicans. Thanks God for the Pardon Power. Oh, wait. The President is a Democrat. Pity.


I particularly loved this excerpt from the article:

"On the one hand, the allegations are shocking. After all, the U.S. government is formally accusing a longtime Trump compatriot, and the man charged with overseeing finances for the Republican National Committee, of secretly working on behalf of a global superpower that is often at odds with American interests. One would think such an allegation would spark a wholesale reckoning among Republican Party leadership.

But instead, these allegations have been mostly met with a collective shrug. Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised. Wynn, after all, is hardly the only member of Trump’s orbit who is accused of having tried to bend the president to another country’s will. Alongside Broidy, Trump’s campaign chair (Paul Manafort) and deputy campaign chair (Rick Gates) were both convicted of illicitly lobbying for a foreign government. The same goes for Mike Flynn, Trump’s first national security adviser, who admitted to secretly working as a foreign agent for Turkey, in addition to taking tens of thousands of dollars from the Kremlin. And Trump’s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, remains under federal investigation for also allegedly working as a foreign agent, after being connected to lobbying efforts from Turkey to Venezuela to pro-Russian forces in Ukraine. (Giuliani has denied the allegations.)"

What a Hall of (Ethical) Fame: Manafort, Gates, Flynn, Giuliani, Broidy, and Wynn. And don't forget Zinke.

Good lord, you need help. Anything to distract yourself from the disastrous and disgusting ruination of America at the hands of the Democrats.

Considering the relationship between Trump and China, I would say Steve Wynn did a lousy job of lobbying on their behalf.

But if this is all that libs have left in the chamber…. Yikes.

Dems shouldn’t talk but when they do and they point fingers it’s just a deflection from what they are in fact doing. Funny how nothing they allege ever sticks.

Here’s what you meant to aks…..

How did Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissmann spend 2 years investigating Trump-Russia; with a team of 19 lawyers, $40 million in resources, 40 FBI agents, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants and 500 witnesses; and not find out that Hillary Clinton created the hoax they were investigating?

Coincidence? 🤷🏼‍♂️🙄

Oh Danny,

When you rely on biased sources such as AOL, MSNBC and Comcast for your “news updates”, you are vulnerable to missing the bigger picture.

Here’s another good Turley article. He’s better at “law” than you, wouldn’t you agree?

The Dems are either:
(1.) Suddenly very interested in Americans failing to register as foreign agents, and/or
(2.) Desperate for a win of any kind

Note: can't claim victory without implicating the Biden Crime Family.

You wouldn't last a minute against Turley. He also doesn't make sh&t up, make ridiculous predictions, and argue like a 10 year old. He's also been in a courtroom, a big one.

What unethical conduct are you asserting they engaged in? Feinstein is OLD, to be sure. I believe she should step down, just as I believe Grassley and Imhofe should step down. But being old is not the same as being unethical. (Of course, one can be both, like Cheeto.)

Neither Feinstein nor Swalwell has been charged with unethical conduct, impeached, indicted, or pardoned with criminal charges hovering over him or her. I don't think you can say that about ANY of the Republicans I mentioned in my OP.

Why would they be charged? Their political party would have to indict their own members. That has as much chance as Nancy Pelosi initiating an impeachment hearing on Biden for dereliction of his Oath of Office. You've made no argument here.

The whole Democratic Party has been unethical since 2016, beginning with the shenanigans of Hillary Clinton. In fact they are covering for the "Big Guy," an easy target for international extortion. We have yet to hear them comment on exactly who the Big Guy happens to be. It is telling that even Hunter Biden has made no denial with regard to his father and the Big Guy.

We'll see if you are making the same arguments next year if Republicans win control. I doubt it. You will probably disappear.

One big hurdle that Republicans have is that the Deep State is overwhelmingly aligned with the Democratic Party. The reason is obvious. They are funded by an ever-expanding federal government.

None of your arguments are with foundation.

This is a joke coming from a Russiagate /intelligence agency coup denier. Criticizing Giuliani for lobbying efforts for foreign countries is also humorous concerning how Biden sold the office of Vice President for family profits.

The FBI investigated the circumstances related to the Chinese "Mata Hari," and she was a donor from whom Swalwell distanced himself promptly after learning of her affiliation with the Chicoms.

I'm not aware of Feinstein ever being investigated or charged with anything. And she's been around for a LONG time. Her late husband was wealthy, and the best her political opponents could come up with was some conflict of interest rumors. If that was the standard, the GOP Senate Caucus would all be investigated and jailed. Does the name Loeffler ring a bell? How about the Senator from North Carolina. They reeked of insider trading.

The results of an ultra competent and unbiased FBI investigation are surely impeccable (sarc). Here is the FBI in action with respect to the Alfa Bank, Hillary Clinton hoax.


Here is the FBI at work as quoted from Substack and the Sussmann trial:

"Relatively early on in the investigation - on September 26, 2016 - Agent Heide sent a message to Pientka, requesting an interview of the source of the Alfa Bank white papers. By that time, Heide knew the white paper was bunk. He received no response from Pientka. He repeated this request on October 3, 2016. Agent Heide’s requests were rebuffed by his liaison at FBI headquarters:"
