Oh look, it’s Elliott Broidy again.

A federal grand jury in New York is investigating top Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy, examining whether he used his position as vice chair of President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee to drum up business deals with foreign leaders, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press and people familiar with the matter.

A wide-ranging subpoena the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn recently sent to Trump’s inaugural committee seeks records relating to 20 individuals and businesses. All have connections to Broidy, his investment and defense contracting firms, and foreign officials he pursued deals with — including the current president of Angola and two politicians in Romania.

Prosecutors appear to be investigating whether Broidy exploited his access to Trump for personal gain and violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which makes it illegal for U.S. citizens to offer foreign officials “anything of value” to gain a business advantage. Things of value in this case could have been an invitation to the January 2017 inaugural events or access to Trump.

A statement released to the AP by Broidy’s attorneys said that at no point did Broidy or his global security firm Circinus have a contract or exchange of money with “any Romanian government agency, proxy or agent.” It also said that while Circinus did reach an agreement with Angola in 2016 there was no connection whatsoever to the inauguration or Broidy’s role on the inaugural committee.

“Any implication to the contrary is completely false,” the statement said.

Okay but here’s the thing.

In order to even get a grand jury to launch an investigation like this, you have to have some pretty compelling evidence. 

Back in March the Justice Department raided his offices and forced him to use his fingerprints to unlock his phones so that they could investigate them. 

That’s the evidence they undoubtedly used to convene this grand jury. 

You may remember Broidy as the GOP fundraiser who paid that Playboy model 1.6 million to keep her quiet about their affair. 

Why do I get the feeling that that affair is going to come up again in THIS investigation?

      Football season coming, next up regurgitating National Anthem kneeling. If HE only could and get up without assistance.
      So sick of the fake patriotism, anything to distract from his dirty dealings.
      From childhood, always thought the pledge was stupid and, quite frankly, what this country has become in the last 2-1/2 years is nothing to woo hoo about..

    ” “To waste your time investigating BS is just horrible,” “In his recent report, Mueller briefly addressed the questions about Rich, writing that Assange had “implied falsely” that the DNC staffer was the source of the party emails leaked to WikiLeaks. His comments about Rich, Mueller wrote, “were apparently designed to obscure” how WikiLeaks really got them: from Guccifer 2.0, an online persona created by Russia’s military intelligence agency, the GRU, who sent the group an encrypted file of DNC material on July 14, 2016, four days after Rich’s death.”
    “The previously unreported role of Russian intelligence in creating and fostering one of the most insidious conspiracy theories to arise out of the 2016 election is disclosed in “Yahoo News presents: Conspiracyland,” a six-part series by the news organization’s podcast “Skullduggery” that debuts this week on the third anniversary of Rich’s murder.”
    ” the Russian government-owned media organizations RT and Sputnik repeatedly played up stories that baselessly alleged that Rich, a relatively junior-level staffer, was the source of Democratic Party emails that had been leaked to WikiLeaks. It was an idea first floated by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who on Aug. 9, 2016, announced a $20,000 reward for information about Rich’s murder, saying — somewhat cryptically — that “our sources take risks.”
    “n the six weeks prior to Rich’s shooting, there had been seven armed robberies in the same neighborhood, causing residents to complain to local police. “We’ve had so many holdups on the same corner, with the same method of holdup, where two guys grab the person,””

      “WHAT IF Jones beats Roy Moore again? Kris Kobach just lost a race for governor and became the first Republican to lose statewide in Kansas in almost ten years. It is very possible that both these men who just lost statewide races lose again in 2020. That leaves Democrats one seat short of Senate control if they take back the White House, and that seat could come from knocking off Sen. Susan Collins in Maine. Democrats could defeat Trump and remove Mitch McConnell as Senate Majority Leader in the same election.
      Democrats have a chance to get rid of both Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell thanks to Roy Moore and Kris Kobach.”

        Also there is a strong Democrat running against Miss Lindsey in SC, 60% of the voters registered in SC are black , they alone could unseat Miss. Lindsey, if they voted

        Kris misspelled his name on the documents he submitted to run, I wonder if that would invalidate them 🙂 what an idiot, can’t even spell his name correctly or maybe legally his name is really Chris.

        So we could take AL. KY, ME and KS, and SC

        the republicans are running the same loser, John James, I am a veteran and trump supporter, in MI, he lost to Debbie Stabenow by a lot in 2018, I seriously doubt he can take Gary Peters seat, especially since we elected a Dem for governor. Also trump is going to lose MI in 2020.

      hahaha wrong post. I was writing about Seth Rich and my browser had a fit.

      As far as Broidy goes I cannot wait for him to get his. The world is too full of fat rich pigs and whores.
