Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, August 18, 2018

The Justice Department is investigating whether longtime Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy sought to sell his influence with the Trump administration by offering to deliver U.S. government actions for foreign officials in exchange for tens of millions of dollars, according to three people familiar with the probe. As part of the investigation, prosecutors are scrutinizing a plan that Broidy allegedly developed to try to persuade the Trump government to extradite a Chinese dissident back to his home country, a move sought by Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to two of the people. They also are investigating claims that Broidy sought $75 million from a Malaysian business official if the Justice Department ended its investigation of a development fund run by the Malaysian government. The Malaysian probe has examined the role of the former prime minister in the embezzlement of billions of dollars from the fund.

It's a well-known fact that Combover Quisling HATES when others make money off his name, so there has to be a lot more to the story. First Cohen and now Broidy making money by peddling influence to the Drumpf Regime. Was Mango Mussolini getting a cut? That would make sense. Did Broidy take one for the team with the supposed abortion with the Playmate and now Adult Diaper Donnie owes him? I mean look at Broidy, I don't care how much money he has, what attractive woman would get within a mile of that toad? Of course the same is true of BLOTUS, but he did have access to jobs in Hollywood, so he could promise more than cash to these women of easy virtue.

I'm sure Mueller will get to the bottom of this, but no matter the answer it is another major embarrassment foisted on our body politic by #Cult45 and the stain that is the Gross Old Pedophile party.

It's not like Dems would ever do anything like this. Boy, if I had an ACORN for every time I heard the Dems throw hypocritical stones, I'd have a rain forest.

Typical. Do tell us how ACORN paid for influence. LOVE to hear it.

And how did that Congressional investigation turn out on ACORN? ...What?! They found NOTHING?! Amazing...

Republican Game Plan:

Step #1: Pretend Democrats are doing something bad.
Step #2: Do what you are pretending Democrats are doing.
Step #3: Get Caught.
Step #4: Cry that you aren't bad because those nasty Democrats are doing it too!
Step #5: Be the Snowflake.
