Democrats are not capable of staying out of trouble. It seems like they cannot go one week without one, or more, of their representatives facing criminal charges.
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Rep. Ray Lujan (D-NM) and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) are facing charges for different crimes. Lujan illegally used pictures from House proceedings. Conyers got caught paying his top aide extra money in an illegal fashion.
Lujan is facing charges connected to a Democrat session on the House floor. Lujan used pictures from the House floor to make money through a donation fund that he had set up for his campaign. It is ILLEGAL for an elected representative to use the photos from the House floor for ANY reason.
Initially, the complaint came via the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust. The people on Lujan’s team pushed back against the foundation, but they are not giving up. He will eventually have to pay for this crime.
Conyers, on the other hand, is charged in a case involving his top aide, Cynthia Martin. Martin was receiving funds to her account to the tune of $16,500 — which she refused to return. Conyers, it appears, made sure that Martin got paid from the House of Representatives, even though she no longer worked there.
Allen B. West reports that Martin has since pled guilty to keeping the funds. She was put on leave.
It is going to be years before most of them are caught. However, if we keep following the threads we WILL be able to take down a good majority, and this should send a powerful message to the rest. You DO NOT get special rights because of your position.
All of the people mentioned are supposed to be there to help this country grow and get better. They have ALL proven time and time again that they do not care about us. The only concern is pushing their agenda and lining their pockets.
We are living in troubling times, but luckily we have a President who is there to CATCH people like this. He spoke of draining the swamp on the campaign trail, and now it is happening. President Trump has the Democrats shaking in their boots right now.
Some of them are even TURNING on each other because they can’t handle the pressure. We watched fans of Loretta Lynch talk about how she needs to quit, and that she is presumably more toxic than Trump in some parts of the country. If that isn’t a clear message of just how disorganized it is on the other side of the fence, we don’t know what it.
