As long as the law applies equally to everyone. I am tired of seeing Washington scum get a pass when us everyday citizens get the shaft. We have watched too many D.C. criminals get away with crimes for which the rest of us would be in prison. I actually felt sorry for Martha Stewart. If she has been a Congressman she would never have gone to jail.

Parting shot...have they looked into Feinstein and her husband yet? Equal justice for all, you know....


I dunno, would anyone 3 days ago have said "have they looked into Collins and his son yet? Equal justice for all, you know"

I'm sure if Feinstein has committed an equally as egregious offense (and one of the stupidest things a politician could EVER do, insider trading), then I feel just as confident that the SEC will find it and come knocking on her door too. Until then, there's no reason to ask.

Yes...The insane corruption and criminal activity that surrounds all of Trump's swamp creatures is just a deep state conspiracy.

Beneath a rock is no way to live a life.

The guy is stupid, he should have texted his son and said something like. Meet me at Kmart in an hour, there’s a new bowling ball I want you to see.
And then give his son the low down.
That way he wouldn’t have anything on the phone

Hillary put a "For Sale" sign on the State Department when she was Secretary there.

If they just go after Trump supporters it will just be another act of corruption.

But, but, but...HILLARY!!!!

I always get confused. Should people "get over" the election? Or is it still Hillary vs. Trump election season?

What year is it?

Is the plan to pardon proven corruption now in trade for unproven allegations of corruption in years past?

Trump put a for sale sign on ALL of the government, and in fact he already has some signs saying

Bought and paid for, come back later

Good.

Now, let's keep draining the swamp.
I hope that Maxine Waters is on the list.

It is the most PROVENLY corrupt administration in a century.

It's impossible to even keep up.

Just off the top of my head (apart form the long list of trump appointees that have been forced to resign under investigation) Zinke comes to mind.

Still fully supported by Trump, under internal investigation for taking a micro-brewery in his home town as payment for favors! Cuz cash is so out of fashion.

What did Pruitt want? A Chick-Filet Franchise for his wife. Among a ton of everyday taxpayer robbery.

Heady days for IGs in DC.

This is nothing more than a shot across the bow of Trump's congressional supporters. The message is: abandon the President or the spotlight will start shining on you.

The trouble is is that the constant need to fund-raise for future campaigns, makes trading favors for money an everyday activity for most of Congress. Thus they are all guilty of something, and hence vulnerable to Deep State blackmail.

Looks like they are going for the 'Watergate' solution to get rid of a President.

You article FROM 8 YEARS AGO fails to mention that a bi-partisan House Ethics Panel thoroughly investigated, even hired an independent attorney to investigate and dropped all of their charges of ethics violations that originated from 10 YEARS AGO.

She advocated bailing out minority owned banks, a long list, not just Bankone.

Your BS is likely the product of the fake news machinery though.



California Democrat Maxine Waters charged on 3 counts," read the headline on an Oct. 6, 2017, post on NewsOfTrump.com. The headline added a hallmark of fake news sites looking to engage an audience, asking readers, "Do you support this?"


www.politifact.com...

But hey, she is African American and advocated for Minority Lending. Lets LOCK HER UP! for 3 ethics violation charges that she was cleared of 10 years ago.

Or maybe the guy just used his position to cheat the average "chump" investor aka the people he was supposed to be representing out of 800k. No doubt this is not the only illegal transaction, just the one they caught him doing.

I'm kind of surprised. The laws for insider trading in Congress are much laxer than for the public, the only reason I think he got himself screwed is because he shared the info. Most of Congress makes money by insider trading to the point they reversed the law that had previously banned the practice.

Yeah. You aren't supposed to rub it in the public's face you are making money off of insider knowledge.
