    Indicted congressman Duncan Hunter

      Hunter continues: 

      And of course I wouldn't do anything hinky if it had to do with the Wounded Warriors.

      But yes, I did say "Fuck the Navy" when I couldn't get them to schedule a tour so I could go on vacation with the family.

        Ya think ONE of the Hunters would have gotten a clue:  WaPo reports

        The Hunters allegedly “overdrew their bank account more than 1,100 times in a seven-year period,” resulting in $37,761 in fees for overdrafts and non-sufficient funds.

        That works out to significantly more than 150 overdrafts per year, 13 overdrafts per month and about three overdrafts per week, every single week, over seven years.

    And, there goes Trump's money man.

    Top Trump Organization official Weisselberg granted immunity in Cohen investigation

    Of course, this could just be wrt Cohen, but why not dream a little?

    • Davie says:

      Gee, Trump's gotta be worried that they're going after Melania, since she handles all of Donald's finances, right?

    • It probably is just wrt Cohen, but given that Weisselberg almost certainly acted on the orders of the board of Trump Org (Hair Furor and later his sons), there's almost no way that his testimony could avoid implicating the Trumps.

      • Pseudonymous says:

        One can dream.

        I’ve seen a couple of conflicting reports about whether Weisselberg was offered use (can’t use what you tell them against you) or transactional (get out of jail free) immunity. It’s really frustrating not knowing which, since they have such different implications.

        • Davie says:

          Here's all that I found from the New York Times article:

          The person briefed on the deal said that it was narrow in scope, protecting Mr. Weisselberg from self-incrimination in sharing information with prosecutors about Mr. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former personal lawyer, who pleaded guilty on Tuesday to tax and campaign finance charges. The latter charges stemmed from payments during the campaign to two women who said they had affairs with Mr. Trump. It was not, the person said, a blanket immunity extending beyond the information he shared, and Mr. Weisselberg remains in his job at the Trump Organization.
