Michael Sainato of The Observer has done a superb job of accumulating all the scandals currently roiling the Democrat Party. Well, not really roiling, because as we all know our objective, unbiased, and not-at-all-leftwing media is covering up every single one of these jaw-dropping scandals. Smothering them to death. Burying them. In other words, thanks to our media, Democrats, the true Russian colluders (more on this below) are getting away with everything but murder.
So, with another word of thanks to The Observer for reminding us of these 17 scandals (I added the last two), here they broken down into a handy-dandy list.
1. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Shady IT Guy
While she was head of the Democrat National Committee (DNC), and until last week when he was detained by the FBI after attempting to flee the country, sitting Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz employed an IT aide named Imran Awan, who is under criminal investigation for all sorts of financial and intelligence crimes. There are reports of him destroying hard drives sought by the FBI, and worse, there are reports he hid a laptop computer in a crevice somewhere in the congressional office building, which, until recently, Wasserman Schultz refused to give investigators access to.
Incredibly, Awan worked for a whole host of Democrats, but for some bizarre reason Wasserman Schultz did not fire him until last week when he attempted to flee justice.
Other than the usual reasons, the MSM is terrified of this story because Awan's access to all computer things Democrat might prove to be the source of the email hacks that the MSM is desperate to pin on Trump via Russia via WikiLeaks.
2. Democrat Mayors Charged with Pay-to-Play
In the great state of Pennsylvania, two former Democrat mayors were indicted on July 26 by the FBI for pay-to-play. This is the first you've heard of it because the national media is covering this story up.
Oh, and you also haven't heard of Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams, who is currently under investigation for $160,000 in gifts that went unreported.
3. Democrat Faces Bribery Charge
Sitting Congressman Robert Brady is currently under FBI investigation for allegedly paying a challenger $90,000 to drop out of the Democrat primary.
4. Democrat Sent to Prison for Racketeering
Just 6 months ago, longtime Democrat Congressman Chaka Fattah began a 10-year prison sentence for racketeering.
5. Democrat Accused of Having Sex with Children
Ed Murray, the sitting mayor of Seattle, ended his campaign for a second term in May after allegations surfaced of child sexual abuse.
6. Corruption Scandal at the Democrat National Committee
As WikiLeaks proved, the DNC rigged the primary against Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton. Due to a class action suit the media does not want you to know about, the scandal is not only ongoing, the discovery phase could be a goldmine — you know, for anyone interested in political corruption.
7. Democrat National Committee Sued for Unpaid Wages
Another class action lawsuit filed against the DNC involves campaign workers who claim they were screwed out of overtime pay even as millions in bonuses were handed out to bigwigs.
8. Democrat's Phony Charity Conviction
Just two months ago Corinne Brown, a congresswoman since 1993, was convicted of pocketing hundreds of thousands of dollars through a phony charity.
9. Democrat Billionaire Steals Party Chairmanship
This is one of the sleaziest things you will ever read.
10. Sitting Democrat U.S. Senator Heads to Trial for Bribery
Just two months ago sitting United States Senator Bob Menendez exhausted his final appeal in the Supreme Court. In September, he will go to trial for bribery charges. This is a sitting U.S. Senator. Moreover, this is a sitting U.S. Senator from a major media zone — New Jersey.
But we all know is that Chris Christie went to the beach.
11. Democrat Mayoral Cover-Up In Chicago
Another high-profile Democrat in a major media zone is benefitting from a national media cover-up. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel not only buried video of a police shooting in 2015, his biggest union supporter — a major Democrat player — was just indicted (two weeks ago) for extortion.
12. Democrat Faces Corruption Charges In New York
In another major media market, a former Assembly Speaker is being tried for corruption.
13. Aides to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Charged with Corruption
Like Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo is the governor of a major state who is considering a presidential run. Like Chris Christie and Bridgegate, a number of Cuomo's aides have been indicted for numerous charges of corruption.
Unlike Chris Christie and Bridgegate, which was a major national story for over a year, we are hearing almost zippo from the MSM about Cuomo's ethical troubles, and his ethical troubles do not end there.
14. New York Governor Cuomo Diverts Emergency Funds to 'Pet Projects'
15. Former Democrat Congressman Pleads Guilty To Underage Sexting
Just two months ago, Anthony Weiner, who is not only a former New York Democrat Congressman but is also married to Hillary Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin, pleaded guilty to sexting with a 15 -year-old girl. Former President Bill Clinton resided over the wedding of Anthony and Huma, and now Anthony will have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his sick life. Oh, and thousands of Hillary's government emails were found on Wiener's laptop.
CNN is asking the media to stop talking about Anthony Weiner.
16. Charges of Democrat Vote Fraud in California
Over 300 votes cast to elect a Democrat Party Chair were fraudulent, according to a review board. A lawsuit is probably on the way in an election decided by just 62 votes.
17. Money Laundering Through Gov. Jerry Brown's Campaign
The corruption is just not the money laundering but also the punishment meted out — a $3500 fine and a warning letter to Governor Brown.
Have I mentioned how good Democrats got it?
18. Obama Administration Wiretaps Trump Through MASSIVE Unmasking
In order to wiretap Trump and his campaign, the Obama Administration wiretapped foreign officials and then unmasked the names of the Trump officials they spoke with, something that is highly unethical and almost certainly illegal. Using national security to a political end is simply beyond the beyond. Moreover, much of this highly classified information was then leaked to a willing media, also for partisan political purposes.
19. Infamous Trump Dossier Fabricated By Company That Does Business With Russian Government
Well, well, well…
While there is zero proof of any collusion between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, there is now no question that Fusion GPS, the firm behind the thoroughly-discredited "Trump Dossier," has done business with and for the Russian government. There are now claims from numerous sources that the "Trump Dossier" was created on behalf of the Russian government, which, if true, means that those most responsible for making the Dossier public — Senator John McCain, CNN's Jake Tapper, BuzzFeed's Ben Smith — are either colluding with Russians, i.e., knowingly spreading Putin's lies to disrupt our government, or Russian stooges.
According to the Daily Caller, this is also true for much of the rest of the media.
To cover up the fact that the media and Democrats appear to have been colluding with the Russians as a means to destroy Trump, Democrats are aggressively trying to kill further congressional inquiry.
NOTE: Yes, the American media does pretty much cover everything. So, yes, if you look hard enough you might find something about these scandals at CNN or The Washington Post. But let's not hide behind hyper-literalism. Just because the MSM can point to a particular write-up, this does not mean the story has gotten any of the traction or attention it deserves. The MSM writes these placeholder pieces only as a means of defense when accused of a cover-up, when we all know that if these were Republican scandals, the MSM stories surrounding them would not be published, buried and ignored — rather, they would consume the news cycle.
