Don’t do the crime if you can’t do the time. One Beverly Hills lawyer is learning that the hard way. Of course, he’s not the only guilty party in this situation.
Check this out, via Daily Caller:
Edgar Sargsyan, a 39-year-old attorney with law offices in Beverly Hills, California, has agreed to plead guilty to five felony offenses, according to an ICE press release. The guilty pleas regard his involvement in a credit card bust-out scheme and hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes he gave to federal agents.Advertisement - story continues below
The attorney admitted to paying thousands of dollars from 2015 to 2017 to a special agent with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the investigative unit of ICE, and to an FBI agent. Sargsyan doled out at least $45,000 in cash and at least $32,000 in checks to the HSI agent for assistance with immigration matters.
Such favors included the HSI agent searching law enforcement databases to illegally obtain information that he then passed over to Sargsyan. The HSI agent also tampered with a Department of Homeland Security database to make it more likely that a foreign client of Sargsyan’s would be allowed into the United States, and the agent procured a document with an HSI letterhead in a failed attempt to allow one of Sargsyan’s relatives from Armenia into the country.
You could have counted on a hypothetical President Bernie Sanders to always make the “woke” decision while working in the Oval Office.
That’s all that matters to the Democrat Socialist and his rabid fanbase of politically uninformed know-nothings.
It would seem that in no situation, at all, would Sanders close down the borders to keep Americans safe.
It’s just not something he’d do.
Seems a little silly, no?
