7. If that was true

I am certain that Attorney General Barr would have prosecuted him by now. The Statute of Limitations on any federal crime committed by Biden as Vice President doesn’t run out until January 20, 2022.
It is much more likely that Donnie and his shitty spawn will end up in federal prison. Just today there was a $2 million personal civil judgement against Donnie for misappropriating Trump Foundation donations to veterans for personal gain and election advantage.
The Trumps are scum.

9. What about the Clinton Crime family slush fund foundation

REceiving $120,000,000 in donations from Putin and his oligarchs?

or Pervy Bill receiving $250,000 each for 2 20 minute speeches in Russia?
Is Hunter Bidens $50,000 month job a quid pr quo given to Joe Biden?

Me thinks Schfflless is raising the ruckus to keep teh D party undiscovered for all their slime!

or the do not prosecute list that the US ambassador gave to Ukraine under Obama!

Trump is far far from a boy scout- but compared to the Dems--He is an eagle scout!

11. The Clinton Foundation is still conducting business

The Trump Foundation was ordered to go out of business by a judge and it no longer exists.

10. Yeah, what the hell

is that all about?



If it's the crime Rumpies are screeching about, why haven't they at least brought charges by now?


They're either incompetent, or there's nothing there

4. He can however be

criminally prosecuted. Seems like something the executive branch should be working with interested parties to look into.

13. Please do try to keep up.

Definition of Elective office:
Elective Office Law and Legal Definition
According to 5 CFR 151.101 , elective office means "any office which is voted upon at an election, but does not include political party office.”

12. No not like that at all, if the oppo research is PAID for it appears to not be a problem

legally speaking.

I know that's crazy but that is the way the law appears to be written.

17. According to the Russian collusion hoax: Lefty claims

merely speaking with those who approach unbidden - but never accepting their offers - constitutes grounds for subverting the election.
