Indicted Businessman Names Harry Reid as Alleged Recipient of Massive Bribe
GOP the Daily Dose ^ | 4/17/2014 | Amy Elizabeth

Posted on 04/17/2014 7:37:18 PM PDT by Beave Meister

A Utah businessman is rocking both state and national politics after claiming Utah Attorney General John Swallow helped him broker a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to make a federal investigation into his company quietly disappear, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Jeremy Johnson was allegedly told that the price would be $600,000, and claims to have made an initial payment of $250,000 when he was slapped with a federal lawsuit. Now he says he wants his money back.

The Salt Lake Tribune points out that Johnson has no way of knowing whether the funds actually made it to Reid, even if he did make a massive payment to Reid’s alleged intermediary.

The Salt Lake Tribune continues, explaining how the bribe supposedly came to be in 2010:

Looks like more domestic terrorist attacking “poor” Misters Reid!

Contacted R members of the senate ethics committee and asked that he be investigated
Looks like another facet of his character in question today!

I’m praying that if the allegations are true, which they may not be, that Reid goes down in smoke. I do hope they can prove he’s guilty as all get out.

While I hope you are right, I won’t hold my breath. The stuff that Congress gets away with is incomprehensible. Ethics laws apply to every profession in America except politician.

How else can we explain the massive lobby industry and the phenomenal growth of wealth by congress critters?

Show me your leaders and I will show you the future. Ours is not too bright right now.

Fox News reported 2 days back that the BLM hired a Utah Cowboy [=Rustler, IMHO ] and he was paid > $900,000 to invade, roundup, steal and transport the bulk of Bundy’s cattle to Utah to be sold at auction.

Fox News also reported that the BLM paid >$300,000 to a Utah auctioneer to auction off Bundy’s Cattle, in Utah.

_______________

So many names apply to very late stage senility patient Harry Reid, and his hired guns:

Reid’s Rustlers
Reid’s Cattle Rustlers
Feudal Lord Reid’s Raiders.

Feudal Lord Reid of the Bureau of Feudal Land Management wants to make Nevada his personal Fief!

Holder had his glory days with “Fast and Furious” and escaped with an Exec. Order from his Chicago ‘Hood pal, Barry Soetoro.

Now “Kill the last cows in the Country” Reid wants his 15 minutes of Glory.

Will the cowardly doormat Republican Leadership in the US House even consider holding Reid accountable for the taxpayer-funded slaughter of Nevada Rancher Bundy’s cattle?

Neighboring Arizona US Senator “Wacko Bird” McCain has not yet thrown his full moral weight of approval to Senate Classmate Reid, but it could happen any day now.

Doesn’t the ACLU, or PIETA have a “beef” with the taxpayer-paid slaughter of Rancher Bundy’s personal Cattle?

Or will Feudal Lord Reid and his hired Rustlers get bailed out by another Executive Order from the infamous pen of “You Lie” Obama?

Feudal Lord Reid and “You Lie” Obama, a dastardly duo on the Democrat dung heap of History!

MOOOOOOOOOOVE………. FORWARD !

"Well, it's not over. We can't have an American Senator who violates the law and then just walks away from it. So it's not over."

Reid supporter and former Reid minion, BLM Director Neil Kornze is nothing but a domestic terrorist. I repeat: what the BLM did up there at the Bundy ranch was domestic terrorism.

Reid, who has not yet been arrested for bribery and violating his oath of office, admits to conspiring against the civil rights of Cliven Bundy and his family, a federal felony:

"The senator said he spoke with Attorney General Eric Holder, FBI leaders and Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie. Reid said he understands there’s a task force being set up to deal with Bundy, and Gillespie is involved as well."

There is no word on whether Senator Reid personally approved plans to murder the Bundy family by burning, sniper fire or with automatic weapons.

The Senator's office was unable to be reached for comment.

It’s a process. First shoot him down in flames then let him go up in smoke and finally rake him over the coals. When all of that has been done then we can just pee on his ashes.
