Skip to comments.Harry Reid, Mike Lee Caught Up in Corruption Probe
Posted on 03/14/2014 1:27:03 PM PDT by lbryce
The FBI and Utah state prosecutors working on a corruption investigation say they have uncovered accusations of financial wrongdoing by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and GOP Sen. Mike Lee, but the Justice Department has so far declined to act on their recommendation for a full federal investigation.
Two district attorneys, one Democrat and one Republican, told The Washington Times, ABC News, and The Salt Lake Tribune this week that they have found evidence of possible financial wrongdoing by the lawmakers relating to suspect campaign contributions and other financial transactions.
"There are allegations, but they are very serious allegations and they need to be looked at by somebody," Sim Gill, a Democrat and chief prosecutor in Salt Lake County, told The Washington Times. "If true, or even if asserted, they truly should be investigated and put to rest, or be confirmed."

Heck. This news development would still be a gift at an exchange rate of hundred Mike Lee's to One Harry Reid.
If Mike Lee was involved in somethign I would gladly want him taken down EVEN IF harry reid was not part of the deal.
We dont stand from that from our own party, like democrats do
and I am emphasising IF - innocent until proven guilty and all that
I would be more inclined to think Mike Lee is being set up because of his Conservative views. Heck maybe by some of the GOPe. Who knows, Cruz maybe next. Most of us know Harry Reid has been corrupt for a long time. Nothing new there.
This war is lost!
That’s the only fair thing to do, absent the facts. Conservatives are not immune from getting themselves into trouble, just as they are capable of being victims of a set-up.
“Jeremy Johnson, an official at a St. George, Utah, bank that processes hundreds of millions of dollars for one of the world’s largest online poker companies, said he and others started arranging tens of thousands of dollars in contributions to state and federal political campaigns, including Reid’s, ABC News reported.
Johnson claims he was instructed by online poker figures to hide illegal contributions to the campaigns of Reid and Lee in 2010 by finding “straw donors” who were reimbursed from poker accounts in the bank for money they supposedly contributed.”
They got Reid and grabbed Lee hostage.
I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if they go after Lee hard and let Reid skate on some flimsy technicality. The “Justice” Department wouldn’t know actual justice if it bit them on their asses and bought them a round of drinks.

FBI only stopped investigating Reid. I found this interesting.
CATHERINE THOMPSON SEPTEMBER 13, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT28068
Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) on Friday sent a letter to the Senate Ethics Committee requesting an investigation of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) for what he calls “attempted bribery.”
The letter responded to reports that Senate Democrats were shopping around a plan to deny government contributions to lawmakers’ health care plans if there is “probable cause” they solicited prostitutes. The proposal would effectively dredge up Vitter’s 2007 prostitution scandal unless he stopped pressuring the Senate to vote on an amendment repealing federal contributions to legislators’ health plans.
The Democrats’ proposal was first reported by Politico.
From the letter:
In response to my proposal and call for a vote on my amendment to reverse the Office of Personnel Managements Congressional exemption from the Affordable Care Act, Senator Reid and Boxer have apparently lead an effort to employ political scare tactics, personal attacks, and threats that would affect each Senators personal finances (i.e. bribery). News reports indicate that one of these proposals would prohibit the employer contribution to any Member of Congress who has offered an amendment in the House of Representatives or the Senate that would prohibit such contributions on behalf of other individuals, or who has voted for the adoption of such an amendment. Such an arrangement, whereby the Senate Majority Leader and the Chair of this Committee are threatening to take away their colleagues healthcare coverage subsidy if they do not vote a certain way, at worst constitutes bribery and a quid pro quo arrangement, and at best amounts to improper conduct reflecting discreditably on the Senate.
Correct. Lee may have needed a little help winning the Primary. He needed no help winning the general election. He is very popular among the electorate there. Harry Reid? Not so much.
Corrupt reid and the corrupt mac daddy administration will due NOTHING to reid as they neighbors in the same stinking, slimy sewer.
They may be illegal contributions, but how would Lee know that under the circumstances?
I can understand why the GOPe would want to destroy their sworn enemies, but if that’s the case, why would they go after Harry Reid?
If Mike Lee has nothing to hide he should very shortly get out in front of this, if he hear nothing from him soon, well...
