Federal prosecutors are preparing to charge longtime GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy in connection with efforts to influence the U.S. government on behalf of foreign interests, according to people familiar with the matter, a result of a sprawling, years-long investigation that involved a figure who helped raise millions for Donald Trump’s election and the Republican Party.
Broidy is under scrutiny for his alleged role in a campaign to persuade high-level Trump administration officials to drop an investigation of Malaysian government corruption, as well as for his attempt to push for the extradition of an outspoken Chinese dissident back to his home country, according to the people, who, like others interviewed for this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation.
He has been in discussions with the Justice Department and could ultimately reach a plea deal, they said....
This is directly related to the Wolkoff thing, "Block Ivanka™®" and likely forthcoming seventy minute long phone tapes of Melania™ and her friend, with incriminating evidence of her friend being thrown under the bus, the concubine trashing her husband and the first lady (Ivanka™® Jared™'s hubby and de facto POTUS), and the grift.
I've read many a Trump®et laugh off the scandal a minute nature of this corrupt regime, as 'oh sure now he's done, got bad orange™ man now', but I do see this as the VERY likely domino that does this scum in. First, straight out of the concubines mouth, because Wolkoff was smart enough to know it was time to save receipts; second, it clearly shows the pattern of grift began even before he took office. No, only the most willfully blinded, and emotionally devoted, white wingers will be able to lie to themselves enough, to excuse away this kind of unraveling scandal. Their ONLY prayer is if Fox can do some real wizardry spin on this, but I don't think there's any spin than can sweep this under the rug.... :lamo:mrgreen:
I laugh, but at same time, it's not really funny, it's absolutely digusting, from before day one! "Drain the swamp"; Install the sewer! :soap
