Trump is being accused of campaign finance violations, but Obama’s are far worse. Matt Margolis of PJ Media opines:
In my last column, I discussed how Donald Trump is being erroneously accused of illegal campaign finance violations and pointed to examples of how Barack Obama is guilty of worse violations of campaign finance laws. Yet there were no calls for Obama’s impeachment, nor was there any media speculation about jail time. Well, apparently there’s a new twist in the game of “Let’s See What We Can Nail Trump For That’s Wasn’t A Crime When Obama Did It.” This week it was reported that“federal prosecutors in New York are investigating whether President Trump’s inaugural committee misused some of the record-breaking $107 million it raised and whether deep-pocketed donors were offered access to the incoming administration in exchange for cash.”
“The nascent criminal probe, which was recently launched by the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan, is based in part on records seized during FBI raids at the office and homes of Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer Michael Cohen, people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal.”
Boy, that sounds serious, doesn’t it? Except, it really isn’t. Big donors expecting access in exchange for big donations is politics. It’s been going on long before Trump came to town… and guess what, liberals? Obama did it too. It’s not me just making stuff up, The Washington Post reported on this just before Obama’s second inauguration.
“The voters have spoken, but even after a $2 billion presidential campaign, the quest for dollars in Washington continues. This weekend, the high rollers are paying for inauguration parties that are almost always busts, a ceremony that’s better seen on TV and access that’s not exactly priceless but pretty darn expensive.”
The sad reality is that politics in Washington are corrupt. A law unequally enforced is no just law at all.
The Republicans are held accountable but the Dems given have a different very low standard. I’d like to know why that is in the judicial department. The very people who should be overlooking our elected people and bring them to task. But on the other hand it may be to big for them so they ignore it . We need to be more cautious about who we elect as Judges .
The only reason the demorats know where corruption can happen is because they are the author of corruption. Will they rver learn the truth??? Did the devil????hmmmmm
Of course democrats ignore the crimes of those among their own ranks. Unless of course it comes under so much public scrutiny that they can’t. Then they will throw the individual under the bus.
I hope the Republicans turn the tables on the corrupt Democrats. It’s time to fight fire with fire. The hypocrites on the left have been getting away with way too much for way too long. You have evil hypocrites who wanted to turn this country over to the globalists, and you have the ignorant, sycophant followers who are dependent on taxpayer funds through welfare and other government benefits. These are the folks who make up the Democratic party. They have been trying to add more illegal aliens to make the country like California, where currently about 1 in 4 people is an immigrant. The Republicans need to strongly support President Trump to keep our country out of the hands of the corrupt globalists, elitists Democrats.
Obama, the worst President ever and will retain that title a lot longer than Buchanan.
Dishonest and hater of the country that gave him so much. You too Mechelee
The campaign funding violations of Hillary Clinton were monumental. Where is prosecution for this?
Democrats: if not for double standards, they’d have no standards at all! – I have heard that said by a great many people, but I think it is very appropriate in this case.
