SAN DIEGO Rep. Duncan Hunter and wife, Margaret, were indicted Tuesday on charges related to the misuse of $250,000 worth of campaign funds for personal expenses and the filing of false campaign finance records.
The charges of wire fraud, falsifying records, campaign finance violations and conspiracy were the culmination of a Department of Justice investigation that has stretched for more than a year, during which the Republican congressman from California has maintained his innocence.

Great day for the democrats.
Nasty Pelosi uses government aircraft but that’s OK because she deserves it.
What a day for the prosecutors
Hope he’s innocent. Don’t know him, but I know there have been some Freepers who are diehard fans of his.
Beat me to it! Unreal....Republicans get caught and arrested so quickly... Democrats, not so much. I smell the deep State.
This is disappointing but draining the swamp means republican swamp creatures too.
The thing is the DOJ is going after Republicans, notice who they are not going after
Meanwhile, Hillary walks free as a bird.
More selective prosecutions. If repubs in congress do not stand up and stop this two tiered justice system, they will all end up in jail.
If it true to hell with him.
Trust the Plan
Sounds like DOJ and the FBI are waging war on Rep congressmen so that the Dems can gain control of Congress and stop the investigations into their corruption. Pay back.
Conspiracy is only a crime if you have a (R) next to your name...
If you have a (D) next to it, it is ONLY A CONSPIRACY THEORY!
Yes. He was the darling of many FReepers and TEA Partiers.
You mean persecutors.
Virtually everyone in the nation is a criminal who can be imprisoned based on selective prosecution.
A department of justice investigation? They investigate this but not the Clinton Foundation or any other democrat?
And our AG is silent...
Hundreds of thousands of dollars in unusual charges on Hunters campaign credit card had come under scrutiny, including among other things, an Italian vacation, dental work, purchases at a surf shop, and huge tabs at bars in restaurants in the San Diego and Washington DC areas. Among the most mocked charges was airfare for a pet rabbit to fly with the family, which an aide said was mistakenly charged to the wrong credit card.
Now if he was selling all our uranium to the Russians that would be cool. But book a rabbit on a flight.....DEATH PENALTY!!!
“More selective prosecutions. “
Lawfare by the corrupt state. This is crazy...the rule of law is dead.
Seems like all the “BOOM!”-age so far this week benefits the DS/Dem team.
And still nothing on the Clintons or the many folks on the Left that have clearly broken significant laws.
The long knives are out today.
