      You don't actually combat corruption by voting for it and then crying about it when the other guy does it.

        Your idea of “combating corruption” is investigating it to death and then crying when your own investigators fail to find it.

            Beaver continues to grasp at the "both sides" last straw.

            Beats having to reckon with the fact that his party is now the party of tRump.

              Michael Cohen Signed a Deal to Cooperate with Prosecutors in a New Probe of Trump’s Business: Report

              Michael Cohen has signed a proffer agreement with the Manhattan district attorney’s office as part of a new investigation into President Donald Trump’s business, according to a report from CNBC on Wednesday.

              CNN similarly reported that Cohen has been speaking with the New York prosecutor’s office run by Cy Vance as it explores potential wrongdoing in the Trump Organization regarding falsified business records.

              The investigation began last month, CNN reported, and it picks up where the investigation from the federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York of a Trump campaign hush money payment left off. SDNY charged Cohen with carrying out an illegal scheme in 2016 to arrange payment for the silence of women who said they slept with Donald Trump, ensuring they wouldn’t damage his campaign. Because this expenditure for the Trump campaign wasn’t reported as such and was deliberately concealed, it violated federal election law. For this crime, other charges of tax and bank fraud, and criminal lies told in the course of the Russia investigation, Cohen is now serving three years prison.

              Trump himself was implicated in the prosecutor’s public findings in the case, but the federal investigation wrapped up without any additional charges — potentially because the president cannot be indicted while in office, according to Justice Department policy.

                They didn't fail to find classified data on the Party Pedo computer, did they?

                What they actually failed to do was pursue justice. Like crediting Nixon as innocent if he'd just destroyed all those tapes.

                  Your line of reasoning leads to only two possible conclusions:

                  1) Hillary is exponentially smarter than Republicans.

                  2) The Republicans egregiously suck at investigations.

                  Either way, not a good look for you.

                      Nah - you're just flustered because your false "both sides" narrative has no factual support to speak of.

                      Years and years of Republican fishing expeditions and investigations produced nada.

                      New York Prosecutors Subpoena Donald Trump's Tax Returns: AP

                      A lawyer for the Trump Organization, Marc Mukasey, said he is “evaluating the situation and will respond as appropriate.”

                      NEW YORK (AP) — New York City prosecutors have subpoenaed President Donald Trump’s tax returns, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press on Monday.

                      Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office recently sent a subpoena to Trump’s accounting firm seeking the last eight years of state and federal tax returns for Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, according to the person, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

                        Two former Trump aides ordered to defy House subpoenas

                        The White House has ordered two former aides to President Trump to defy their subpoenas to appear at a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday.

                        White House counsel Pat Cipollone said in a letter to the panel that the Justice Department recommended and Trump directed Rick Dearborn and Rob Porter to go against their subpoenas due to "constitutional immunity."

                        The letter said the two were told not to go “because of the constitutional immunity that protects senior advisers to the president from compelled congressional testimony, and in order to protect the prerogatives of the Office of President."

                            Politicians really don't have any leverage to investigate other politicians. It's why these years of Democrats pissin' into the wind over Trump's various failings produced roughly nothing. More empty talk of impeachment to keep the easily-led semi-aroused. No official action. Pelosi trying to get everyone to chase the squirrel instead.

                              I'm sure all the tRump co-conspirators currently serving out their prison sentences will be relieved to hear the news.

                                Federal Appeals Court Rules Trump Can Be Sued for Unconstitutional Profiteering

                                A federal appeals court ruled Friday that President Trump can be sued for unconstitutionally benefiting from his ongoing ownership of the Trump Organization. The ruling by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York reverses a district court decision that dismissed the lawsuit. It also breaks from a decision by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia, setting up a potential Supreme Court showdown.

                                Trump has been sued three times in cases alleging that he is violating the Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution, which are anti-corruption provisions that prohibit the president from accepting payments from foreign or state governments. The Foreign Emoluments Clause disallows the acceptance of money from foreign governments without Congressional consent, and the Domestic Emoluments Clause sets the president’s salary.
