OOPS: Dems New Socialist Hero in Florida May Be Under Investigation By the FBI

Published

on

I was going to say that maybe the new Democratic candidate for governor in Florida may not quite be the figure he’s been touting himself to be…but as a socialist-minded politician, potentially being shrouded in corruption and cover-up definitely fits the bill for a Marxist of any stripe.

Not to mention a powerful Democrat.

So yeah…this actually makes a lot of sense.

Trending: Former Acting DNI Says Trump Told Him ‘Multiple Times’ He’s Running for POTUS 2024

Andrew Gillum was the surprise winner of the Flordia gubernatorial race this week who has caught the attention of the nation as yet another unpredicted upset by a far-left candidate in an election an establishment Democrat had been projected to win; the first, of course, being Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who may be more of a favorite of the right than the left at this point for all her brilliantly hilarious gaffes.

Gillum’s campaign, however, has a sizable hurdle to pass that progressives worry his Republican opponent, Ron DeSantis, may take full advantage of.

The FBI has been conducting an investigation of pay-for-play corruption out of the mayor’s office in Tallahassee, of which Gillum is currently mayor.

Whoopsie!

The investigation, the Tallahassee Democrat reported yesterday, has been going on for three years. Gillum claims he’s not a target, but he is very closely connected to agencies that are, as he admitted in an interview two months ago:

“I have zero tolerance for corruption and inappropriate or illegal behavior, and the last several months there appears to be an FBI investigation into something we thought was writ large in our government, the CRA, which I am chair of,” Gillum said during a six-minute conversation on the subject.

But an FBI search warrant released publicly by accident in February was “fairly telling,” he said. The search warrant names [commissioner Scott] Maddox and Downtown Improvement Authority Executive Director Paige-Carter Smith, his former chief of staff, and Governance, the consulting firm Maddox founded but sold to Carter-Smith.

The search warrant detailed an alleged bribery scheme involving Carter-Smith, Maddox and Governance. In it, the FBI alleged Maddox took official acts to benefit clients of Governance in exchange for payments.

“We pulled that document down and it showed at least an accusation of one of my colleagues having taken money potentially in exchange for a set of votes on something that came before the commission,” Gillum said. “This is the government’s argument and we have yet to hear the other side of the argument and he is entitled to that.”

“That doesn’t exactly sound like ‘zero tolerance,'” Hot Air points out, “especially three years into the investigation.”

 

Save conservative media!

Former Acting DNI Says Trump Told Him ‘Multiple Times’ He’s Running for POTUS 2024

It’ll be here before you know it.

The first openly gay cabinet member got little to no recognition from the mainstream media because he worked for a Republican administration. After all, the MSM works as the public relations branch of the Democrat Party. What Richard Grenell said on Monday, though, will have every liberal in the media listening intently. #Trump2024 WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1353516978544250882?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1353516978544250882%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frichard-grenell-trump-does-want-to-run-again-in-2024-video%2F President Tucker Carlson? How does that sound to you? Could it one day happen, perhaps as soon as 2024? Only time will tell, obviously, but the rumor is abuzzin’. From Politico: Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024. Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary. CONTINUED: “He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016. While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology.

Chief Justice Roberts Will Not Preside Over Impeachment Trial, Will Be Top Dem Leader Instead

They want revenge, vengeance.

“Wanna know how I got these scars?” That was the question Heath Ledger’s Joker asked a partygoer in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Said partygoer is the man who will preside over the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Not a joke. Just search the internet for SENATOR LEAHY BATMAN. From The Hill: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8. Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic Conference, will preside over the trial. CONTINUED: Leahy on Monday confirmed he would wield the gavel and promised to administer “impartial justice.” “The president pro tempore has historically presided over Senate impeachment trials of non-presidents. When presiding over an impeachment trial, the president pro tempore takes an additional special oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and its laws. It is an oath that I take extraordinarily seriously,” he said in a statement. How incredibly moronic is it to impeach a president after he has left office? What a waste of time. Democrats have proven, time and again, that they are not out for “unity.” Not at all. They want revenge; vengeance; blood. Okay, I did the search for you.
