The FBI has a search warrant for a U.S. Congressman's email and they allege he actually paid off an opponent during the 2012 primary elections !!

It's U.S. Congressman Bob Brady of Pennsylvania.

The FBI thinks the emails may have evidence !!!

Brady apparently paid an opponent $90,000 to quit.

FBI Investigates Congressman for His Campaign Paying Opponent to Quit


The FBI said it is investigating Rep. Bob Brady (D-PA) for an alleged scheme to pay his primary opponent to drop out of a 2012 race against him and for allegedly lying to investigators.

The revelation came from a search warrant application unsealed in a Pennsylvania federal court on Monday, which was first reported by Seamus Hughes. An FBI agent asked a judge to authorize access to Brady’s personal email account on the belief it holds evidence contradicting an anticipated defense about the campaign payments. The judge approved the warrant and the FBI said it got one CD worth of data from the e-mail account.

Brady’s congressional office in Washington, D.C. could not be reached for comment. Brady has not been charged with a crime.

Good, perhaps more corruption being weeded out.

The party affiliation of the accused is irrelevant to me.

I am tired of corruption robbing the voters of a fair process.

IMO,

taking that bribe is far more corrupt than making it was.

What law was broken? Is it actually illegal?
It sounds shady, but he just paid the man to go away. That happens every time someone settles a civil suit out of court. Anyone that can be bought for 90 grand, I don't want in power anyway.

The irony of seeing actual election rigging by the DNC while they cry foul about election rigging by Russia...priceless

I knew it before even clicking on the headline. If it's corruption with proof, you can bet it's a Dem.

Your OP does not mention this VERY INTERESTING tidbit:



CONGRESSMAN OVERSEEING SEXUAL HARASSMENT SETTLEMENTS INVESTIGATED BY FBI FOR CAMPAIGN FRAUD




Pennsylvania Congressman Bob Brady, who oversees the settlements paid by Congress for sexual discrimination complaints, is under FBI investigation for false statements, conspiracy and campaign fraud, documents showed Tuesday.

Brady, a Democrat, is a ranking member of the Committee on House Administration, which gives him power over settlement payments with taxpayer dollars.

The office also works to prevent sexual harassment in Congress.

If the opponent sold out for 90k, imagine what he would have sold his constituents out for.

Win/win??

Separating the chaff from the wheat is never easy, a bit like the Chris Christie thing about him fetching a McDonald's for Trump, (reported on here I think)
Christie denied that was true..it didn't help though. Sam Nunberg, a former Trump aide, said he made it up just for malice, a reporter a few days ago, said it wasn't Sam Nunberg who made the story up, it was someone else.....

That is freaking hilarious.... or it would be if it were happening in some other country.

The dude helping to oversee paying off victims of serial sexual harassers is also in charge of preventing sexual harrassment.

Hmmm.
Or we could look at it this way...
This guy that was willing to invest 90 grand to seal a primary win must have plans to sell out his constituents to make that money back..... and a whole lot more.

Oh, surely. There is no moral superiority here.

If one will buy an election, what else would they attempt to buy?

Dems: "Election fraud ? What election fraud? Why does Trump want to verify if there is actual election fraud"

Right.

Obvious enough now? Even for libtards ?
