Woo hoo Republican congressman will go on trial in 2020


It’ll be good to have a Republican on trial for corruption in an election year.

“Duncan Hunter's trial pushed back, pending appeal of ruling”

Rep. Duncan Hunter won’t go on trial until next year on corruption charges that involve the spending of campaign cash on vacations, extramarital affairs and other items, a U.S. judge decided Tuesday.

U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Whelan changed the trial date from Sept. 10 to Jan. 14 after Hunter’s defense attorneys raised questions about whether an appeals court must first consider their motion to dismiss the case against the California Republican.

3. If the Congressman was a Democrat

Would rightys be excited? Would that be righty desperation?
In an election year neither party wants its members to be on trial.
I guess you have missed how much anticipation there is here at Discussionist hoping Comey, Clinton, Obama, Holder, Lynch, McCabe, Brennan or any other Democrat will be indicted just like Congressman Duncan Hunter.

7. Should be interesting now that his wife pled guilty and decided to cooperate with the prosecutors.


The 22-page court plea agreement includes a series of damning admissions by Margaret Hunter about her husband's conduct. In the document, Margaret Hunter admits that she repeatedly conspired with her husband between 2009 and 2016 to use campaign funds to cover routine expenses like groceries, as well as couples outings with their friends to the track at Del Mar and other restaurants, lavish family gatherings at the Hotel Del Coronado, a $14,263 Italian vacation that the family could not have otherwise paid for, and a family trip to Minnesota in which they spent $250 in campaign funds on air transport for the family bunny, EggBurt.
