Corruption

By Patrick Van Roy On July 22nd, 2020

Matthew Borges, a lobbyist and former chairman of the Ohio Republican Party, was arrested in connection to a year-long $60 million federal bribery scheme. According to prosecutors, Borges and three other lobbyists allegedly conspired with the Republican Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives to secure a $1.3 billion taxpayer bailout for an Ohio-based energy company, FirstEnergy Solutions.

  1. I see Trump has stated his support for Ghislaine Maxwell in her trial for sex-trafficking minors for Jeffrey Epstein.

    That should secure for the President the child-molester vote in November.

  2. That could be another case of Trump interfering in the course of justice.

    ” Don’t mention what I did on that island, maybe I can get you a pardon ”

    Similar enough to his comments on Flynn and Roger Stone

    Very loud message in support of the alleged abuser of young girls.

  3. That should secure for the President the child-molester vote in November

    That comment made coffee come down my nose!

  4. all he said Noel was “I wish her well” while shaking his head in disgust….. that’s real support.

  5. That’s not what went down

    He made a friendly comment of support

  6. https://www.vogue.com/article/donald-trump-ghislaine-maxwell-i-wish-her-well

  7. did you see it? Do you have the clip….. NO you didn’t and no you don’t.

  8. yup all those church going hypocrites that support Trump will have NO problem with that Noel
    He wished a woman well who has been indicted for procuring and submitting young girls to sexual abuse and servitude, and if found guilty will probably serve 30 years.
    Republicans would not even raise and eyebrow , but if it were a friend of a democrat
    well we know the rest – Fox news response etc etc .
    Another Nail in the coffin for Trump

  9. gee an article that spins it as support from a mag that’s anti-trump…. wow I’m convinced.

    Now here is the tape. If this is your idea of support I have 1000 clips of Democrats spouting much more direct support for BLM/Antifa/Rioters

  10. pat you’re busted again
    seems like every day now
    Trump did NOT react as he was supposed to with serious charges
    if fact he-repeated X2 “he wished her well ”
    No spin here all your side
    Busted !

  11. You have to seek help for your TDS.

    Me who is constantly called a shill for the Republican Party puts up a post about a Republican being busted for corruption and you all just can’t help but foam at the mouth about Trump.

    Serous seek help.

  12. There was no disdain in what he said

    He said twice that he wished her well and he said that he knew her in Florida

    That’s a message of support, and more than that

    And as some here know, he was a pal of Epstein, flew on Epstein’s jet, visited Epstein’s sex slave island

    He’d better hope that she keeps quiet.

  13. Pat is busted flat in Baton Rouge

    He can’t criticize Trump no matter what Trump does at any time. He can’t ever do it.

  14. Here’s the clip Pat:

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/trump-ghislaine-maxwell-prince-andrew-jeffrey-epstein-sex-trafficking-a9631351.html

    He repeats twice ‘I wish her well’

    That’s pretty much the definition of a message of support in any objective person’s book.

  15. lol yeah I’m busted on a post about republican corruption the TDS infected foam all over themselves and I’m busted….. lmao

    seek help

  16. Pat itsyou that has Turnip derangement syndrome

  17. all he said Noel was “I wish her well” while shaking his head in disgust….. that’s real support.

    NO pat you’re busted for lying again ! its simply untrue your claim
    It a whopper, a pants on fire , a Pinocchio line ..
    no foaming , just direct hits , hammer drops .. need to face it buddy you’re busted

  18. lol Pat you say you don’t wear a mask but I just VPN’s via your IP into your webcam 😉

  19. Your post is about anti-Trump Republican corruption, otherwise you wouldn’t have posted it. You are a shill for Trump not for the Party.

  20. thank you Mahons

  21. nah that’s just how I look before I finish the first pot of coffee kurt

  22. That bloke looks like he swallowed the $60 million bribe 🙂

  23. It’s not a syndrome I have EP, it’s admiration.

    This guys the greatest thing since Reagan and Nixon.

    I’m loving it.

  24. Do you admire any other criminals?

  25. Yes, he admires Flynn, Roger Stone….

  26. Phantom it really galls you that

    The Mueller investigation spanned several continents. It encompassed 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants and about 500 witnesses. It marshaled the combined efforts of 19 lawyers and 40 investigators, including FBI agents, intelligence analysts and forensic accountants. At a cost of over $45 Million

    and they found NOTHING…..

    It just sits in your craw and chokes ya, don’t it….

  27. What crime did Flynn commit Mahons ?

  28. “What crime did Flynn commit Mahons ?”

    He lied to FBI agents.

    Cue bullshit about duress, 302s etc…

  29. Lots of people admired John Gotti, some admire Mexican cartel leaders

    Patrick admires Trump

  30. You mean they found nothing justifying an indictment of the President. Because they did find other things which resulted in indictments of others.

  31. “Patrick admires Trump”

    So much that when Trump wishes his pimp well Patrick has no issue with that.

  32. Seamus answered it.

  33. oh I love the latest in that case. The idiot judge is throwing a fit…. he didn’t like the results of the one judge review telling him he wasn’t a prosecutor that he was a judge so he demanded an appeal to the full court…..

    well to even ask for the full court the judge has to as the Justice dept for permission to do so (damn due process) they’ve simply told him NO.

  34. I won’t start a war and get into who you admire Seamus……

  35. “ Free Ghislaine Maxwell. “

    She can be part of the new Trumper holy Trinity, along with Michael Flynn and Roger stone

  36. “well to even ask for the full court the judge has to as the Justice dept for permission to do so (damn due process) they’ve simply told him NO.”

    According to Flynn’s ambulance chasers (both his personal ambulance chasers and Tom Hagen’s ambulance chasers). It will be up to the Court to determine whether or not Judge Sullivan has standing to request an en banc review.

    In addition should Sullivan not have standing to request an en banc review any member of the Court of Appeal can request one.

  37. “I won’t start a war and get into who you admire Seamus……”

    Who do I admire?

  38. So your heroes are Reagan a spend thrift deficit inflating republican and Nixon a criminal gang leader

    No wonder turnip resides in those halcyon halls

  39. The saddest part of all this is pat genuinely and I mean genuinely believes that Trump showed disgust at the revolting crimes Maxwell is accused of .
    And it’s totally untrue.
    On what planet do you wish someone well accused of such wickedness. Law and order ? Yeah right?
    This is the hold Trump has over his devotees.
    Willful blindness .
    Tell ya what pat the country sees and you’ll see too in November . 400 + electoral college seats to Joe Biden is becoming a reasonable day for the democrats in just over 100 days time .
    450 + would be an excellent day .
    Trump loves breaking records I sincerely hope he gets less than Jimmy Carter .
    478 I think or maybe 477 Reagan achieved .
    On that day Trumpers will begin the painful extraction of their heads from their asses .
    Like childbirth it’s gonna hurt for a short while

  40. damn right EP

  41. In addition should Sullivan not have standing to request an en banc review any member of the Court of Appeal can request one.

    NO

    He doesn’t have standing to deny the DOJ dropping the charges, he doesn’t have standing to bring in another Judge as a prosecutor, nor does he have standing to act as one himself.

    He’s a laughing stock.

  42. She can be part of the new Trumper holy Trinity, along with Michael Flynn and Roger stone

    Phantom – I see an enterprising new company being formed.

    Flynn,Stone and Maxwell. “We’re not lawyers, but if its a pardon you want or a sentence quashed, we know just the right man to help you. White House Don. He’s a friend of ours and he can be your friend too” fees to be negotioated.

    Disclaimer- We accept no clients from the Russian Republic… well not officially or traceably 🙂

  43. “He doesn’t have standing to deny the DOJ dropping the charges, he doesn’t have standing to bring in another Judge as a prosecutor, nor does he have standing to act as one himself.”

    According to Flynn and the DOJ. Let’s see what the Court of Appeal decides.

    “He’s a laughing stock.”

    If he was a laughing stock then you’d probably support him.

  44. Never missed a USA election . All nighter

  45. Popcorn pizza chips couple of crates of bud
    Texas that’s the prize that’s the crown jewels.
    Result has to be overwhelming and massive like a blue wave tsunami lest the coward in chief child rapist and supporter of child rape cries foul and calls election rigged .which he’s already setting up in his back pocket

  46. lest the coward in chief child rapist and supporter of child rape

    A tad OTT kurt methinks !

  47. He wishes the procurer / madam who secures young naive girls for purposes of rape well.

    Let’s leave it at that

  48. There is no evidence yet that Trump did any such thing, but he certainly was in the smarmy circle that cut across the political spectrum.

  49. mahons there’s suspicion and people on the record in documentaries that were acquainted with Trump in the 80’s and 90’s that spoke of how he “liked em young” and Epstein enabled that .. circumstantial of course, gillian maxwell would know all about that .
    There’s testimony in their circles how the big stars get the fresh ones, its that sick, before they get all scrawny and addicted to heroin and so forth ..
    He’s wanted for a rape charge but refuses to provide DNA I’m sure you’re familiar with that one.

  50. they’ll stone you for saying that Mahons

  51. nah we’ll go with evidence just the same pat, unlike your claims on the Clintons
    law and order remember !

  52. the evidence that 4yrs of looking has yet to find….. oh ok

  53. Pat doesn’t need evidence when it is a Democrat. Conjecture and innuendo is enough. But he becomes a line by line ambulance chaser when it comes to Republicans (unless those Republicans oppose Trump).

  54. Anyone who allowed themselves to be availed of Epstein’s hospitality for any reasonable length of time would have know exactly what was going on with regard to Epstein’s sexual procurements. They turned a blind eye becasue they enjoyed the luxury of his hospitality, jus as those in the film business gave Weinstein’s abuses a pass as they enjoyed being in his influential circle. Neither Clinton, Trump or ‘His Royal Highness’ is innocent.

  55. yes there was no evidence that Hillary was guilty of violating both the espionage act and the federal records act…. she had special dispensation from the Law….. She’s Hillary Clinton after all.

  56. as for epstein and the rest of the chester the molester crowd goes…. if you’re not going to prosecute and persecute the royals that used his services I think persecuting people that you have no evidence as of yet on is just pretty rich…

  57. Are you comfortable with the fact that Trump visited the sex slave island?

    Why was he there?

    No need to mention other names.

  58. Patrick

    Who is being persecuted in the Epstein case ?

  59. no I’m not comfortable with anyone going there

    no one that I can see Colm.

    People here are trying to persecute Trump with it, if there’s evidence fine, but none on him has been found. If there is cut his privates off then the death penalty. The same for all of them. Male or Female.

  60. Patrick

    I agree which is why I called out kurt on his unfounded and blatant claims. However, there is an element of shameful guilt shared by Trump, Clinton, Prince Andrew and all others who fawned around Epstein.

  61. It is persecution to note that he was buddies with Epstein, and that he blew an air kiss to Ghislaine Maxwell yesterday on live TV?

  62. He clearly expressed warm wishes to her, spoke fondly of his association with her and most definitely had no look of disgust on his face when speaking about the Epstein scandal. In fact his look was more one of basic disinterest. Patrick is seeing what just isn’t there.

  63. Patrick is seeing what just isn’t there.

    that’s the money shot , hugely worrying for you pat as we all saw the video you posted
    look again, no frown, no disgust .. why can you just express disappointment on behalf of your president, is that breaking some kinds rule / convention ? Its Nuts just to make shit up like this – damages your credibility , don’t you have any self respect Patrick ? seriously ?

  64. “if there’s evidence fine, but none on him has been found.” Trump’s message to Maxwell was you keep the evidence secret and I can do something for you. That is why it cannot be found, same thing happened with Roger Stone and the Russian evidence that would have hung Trump. Trump uses pardons to cover up his criminal acts.
