    There are going to be a few more senators served warrants for the same reason before this is all said and done.

      bc democrats never commit this crime, right, Jonny?

      Kent Horvath who said they don’t? They should all be prosecuted, left or right, or do you only want the left to be held accountable for their crimes?

      You’d hope so

    • Pipe Wrench Feinstein had all her investment in a blind trust . ( if you don’t know what that means look it up) Her husband did sell stock he had in a bio-lab company in Jan .But I agree if anyone is caught doing this on any side should be charged.

  2. By now, we’re all used to republicans using their power to get rich. But doing so during a pandemic that has killed more Americans in 2 months than the Vietnam War did in 14 years is a new twist. Thanks for keeping your old ways of corruption interesting and fresh! 😄😅😂

    • @Snow, Think B as in Billions

    • Bill Clinton left the White House massively in debt, and now he is worth 100 million giving million dollar “speeches”. Obama is giving these “speeches” aka washing his bribe money too. And I guess you forgot the democrat senators who did the same thing that bill did. Oh wait it doesn’t fit the classical narrative that all republicans are greedy selfish corporates out for themselves while all democrats are the ones who truly care about the people … better forget I said anything

    • K K Making their money after they leave office just happens to be their own personal right to do whatever the F they want to do! Making themselves rich WHILE HOLDING OFFICE BEING PAID BY TAXPAYERS IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT BALLGAME. TRUMP AND HIS FAMILY AND TRUMPUBLICANS ARE ENRICHING THEMSELVES AS WE SPEAK! If you want to refuse to believe that, that is on you! But because you want to believe Trump is a giving generous man……oMG….that just proves that trumpanzees can only function on the level of a frozen pea!

    • Snow Angel

      Trump paying the treasury department. For wealth made off of foreign nationals staying at his hotels.

      Trump loses a billion dollars sense 2015.

    • @Snow Angel Trump isn’t making money in office. He is losing money and would’ve been better off if he stayed managing his own business. And you’re foolish if you think Obama and Clinton and Bush aren’t corrupt because they didn’t get paid during office. You realise how bribing presidents work right? Once they are in office they work for the big corporations and once they are out of office they receive their payment through “giving speeches” so that morons like you don’t suspect them.

  3. He should go to prison like Martha Stewart. His case is worse as a public servant. Shame on him.

      @Adventure54 do you make it a habit of making stupid statements? “you can’t go to jail until you’ve been found guilty by a jury of your peers or you plead guilty & that applies to all involved.”

      that statement is inaccurate. i guess you’re one of “those”

  4. Adventure54 | May 14, 2020 at 1:16 AM | Reply

    Another Republican elected official Trump supporter who ended up getting served. He will probably plead guilty & retire/resign from Congress not unlike many others.

    • Adventure54 | May 14, 2020 at 3:52 PM | Reply

      @Jim Skarw Yeah, but it appears one side is usually getting BUSTED! So, they are either grossly incompetent imbeciles who do not know how to hide their paper trail or maybe the other side is simply following the law, most of the times.

    • El ganso Loco
      Who is “we”?

    • Adventure54 This is anything, but over, John Durham’s report is gonna hit like a drum solo, from the Seventies.😀

      Can’t you do anything by yourself?

  5. Watch slick Billy and his king try to fix this one.

  6. The swamp is draining itself

    • Larrygilbertreyes Reyes | May 14, 2020 at 2:02 AM | Reply

      Yea right well the swamp got out today on a corna virus ploy. Prison at home. WTF

    • It refills quicker than it drains.

    • It’s not draining anything. This “investigation” will likely go on for several months or years until the majority of the public forgets and gets focused on some corruption somewhere else. All four of the republican/democrat senators involved in this will get off completely scot free and probably even win their next elections and go back to corruption as usual. Martha Stewart was an exception but 99% of the time they get away with it

    I knew it Barr Jared Ivanka Miller Munuchin all did this too Mitch and wife as well.

    …and then Atty. Gen. Barr will “de-legitimize” any future investigations.

    • @Terry Michaels What has Barr done right? Sessions had more integrity.

      @Toma Harley Cheap and meaningless, you represented yourself perfectly. Idiots like you are why I left the party (forty years a Democrat).

      ARE YOU STUPID? Show your evidence or you’re just another meaningless, petty, bitter whiner making up crap.

      @Fred A Kid, I’m sure you can find his resume online.
      It might be an embarrassment for you to look at and discover he’s done so much more than you, but get a backbone and look instead of making meaningless cheap shots for no reason other than your Trump hate, little boy.

    Richard Burr has been involved with insider trading and misleading the public.

    • He, and everyone else who had
      suspicious stock activity before hand should be investigated

    • Robin Hood ok investigate me and well over half the country 😂😂dumbasses we all sold stock around the same time

    • mondoc jenson | May 14, 2020 at 7:25 AM | Reply

      He’s part of the pirate ship that misled Americans about the Stimulus check. I say let this clown walk the plank, better yet drown!

      @Scot Mile Did you also go on television and tell everyone that it was all going to be okay & that the market was strong, all while knowing what was going to happen & rushing to sell your own stocks?

    • Matthew Namehere well that’s called capitalism if you believed that well he got paid you did not
      Anyone with a brain knew they had to sell off boy your a smart one
      Hey the sun is not coming out tomorrow you want to buy some stock in that 😂😂😂
