    n Madrid’s Audiencia Nacional yesterday they began to read the closing statements for the trial of the first part of the Gürtel case (1999-2005). This is the biggest corruption trial in the history of Spanish democracy and it involves a single party, the Partido Popular, which would love to see it hushed up. The prosecutor was particularly emphatic in her final remarks and penalty request for the 37 defendants. She explained that the ringleaders of Gürtel set up a slush fund to bribe PP officials, which became their “way of life”.The trouble is that Gürtel was not merely a corrupt...

    Comedian Rosie O’Donnell in a tweet late Tuesday offered millions in cash to senators who vote against the Republican tax plan. Her tweet called specifically on Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Susan Collins of Maine. Ms. O’Donnell offered $2 million to each senator to vote no. She then followed up telling Ms. Collins specifically to call if she wanted to negotiate. [SNIP] Offering money to a lawmaker in exchange for changing a vote, or voting a particular way, is illegal.
  • NFL Owners Appear Poised To Pay Nearly $100 Million Bribe For Nothing

    NFL owners seem poised to donate nearly $100 million (including some contributions from players) over seven years to support the favorite social justice causes of the players. But in a perfect show of how incompetent they are, the owners will get nothing from the players in return. No promise to stop disrespecting the national anthem or any other meaningful concessions. Who taught these clowns to negotiate, Neville Chamberlain? Obviously, they are used to trying to buy their way out of problems. Can you even imagine the sum total spent bailing their pampered players out of legal beefs, domestic violence and...

    Sen. Bob Menendez is appealing to a higher court during his corruption trial — heaven. The embattled New Jersey Democrat gathered with a circle of clergy members in the hallway of Newark federal court on Thursday to pray, moments after being hammered by a damning closing argument by the prosecution. Menendez and his ordained supporters had just heard Justice Department prosecutor J.P. Cooney tell jurors that a wealthy donor had bribed him.

    A former staffer for U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez testified Monday that the Democrat helped with the visa applications of friends of a wealthy doctor who faces bribery charges with him, while defense attorneys sought to show Menendez's actions were unremarkable and part of the duties of his office. Under direct questioning from the government, former senior policy adviser Mark Lopes testified Menendez emailed him in 2008 authorizing a letter of support from Menendez to be sent to consular officials regarding the visa applications of two sisters from the Dominican Republic.*snip*Earlier Monday, a vice president for American Express testified Melgen used...

Yevgeniy Nikulin, 29, has found himself in the middle of an international dispute between Washington and Moscow, at the very center of which lies U.S. allegations that Russia sponsored a series of hacks targeting Democratic Party candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in favor of Republican candidate and current President Donald Trump.

  • Pre-Bribing a President

    05/10/2017 4:09:31 AM PDT · by Leaning Right · 25 replies ^ | May 3, 2017 | Scott Adams
    It is illegal to bribe a president. But it is totally legal to pre-bribe one. Here’s how a pre-bribe works. When a president leaves office, you offer the ex-president an enormous speaking fee. Let’s say $400,000. The ex-president does the speech and banks the money. The ex-president has no power at that point, so the speaking fee can’t be seen as a bribe because there is no quid pro quo. But what about the president that is in office while this happens? Do you think the current president notices when the the prior president gets a $400,000 payday for an...

    When Russians wanted to end their sanctions, they turned to Tony Podesta, brother of John Podesta. The bank bribed Podesta to convince Obama to reduce sanctions. Recently the Washington Post hired John Podesta to write a Trump column. The irony here is unbelievable. As a top Hillary-advisor, John exploded at FBI Director Comey for not examining the evidence. Now his own brother is knee deep in the bull$h*t. According to Open Secrets, Podesta’s firm racked up $170,000 from a Russian bank, Sberbank CIB. {..snip..}

    Synopsis: VA Gov. Terry McAuliffe, close Clinton confidant, gave $465K to a PAC for Jill Mcabe who was running for a state senate seat in VA. (Think this money came from the Clinton foundation? That's my guess). Two months prior to this "donation", McCabe's husband Andrew was promoted to a position within the FBI where he became in charge of the Clinton email investigation! Blatant and overwhelming confilict of interest. Combine this with Bill Clinton meeting with the US Atty General Lynch on the tarmac at the airport in AZ and you have "something that really stinks".

    A top State Department official offered a “quid pro quo” to an FBI investigator to declassify an e-mail from Hillary Clinton’s private server in exchange for allowing the bureau to operate in countries where it was banned, stunning new documents revealed Monday. The FBI documents show that Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy pitched the deal to the unnamed agent, allegedly as part of an effort to back up Clinton’s claim that she did not send or receive classified documents on the server in her Westchester home. “[Redacted] indicated he had been contacted by [Kennedy], Undersecretary of State, who had asked...
