This stinks of RICO

In most democracies Nunes would have resigned already, along with Mulvaney and a plethora of others caught up in this madness.

The guise of "draining the swamp" was a cover or ruse for installing a septic tank chock-full of floating crime turds, then.

I don't like the smell of that

18. they believe they have permanent rule locked up, now ...

They have Barr's Dirt Services (formerly DoJ) and the Justice Beer Bong Weenie Waver gang in the SCOTUS, they have Moscow Mitch and they have Traitor Trump. I'm sure that some believe that if they just tough it out, elections can be rigged enough to let most of the Gangsters Of Putin stay in power.

We have to chip away until their idols crumble.

21. I have experience with these wanna be authoritarians

and their charm always fails - just when they think they are in control.

Never rule out the impeachment of some of these judges because if ReTHUGs love ém, there are crimes and other unethical goings on to be discovered.
The system is stronger than these two bit crooks

about things like the rule of law or corruption. To them and their votes, the Constitution is just so much toilet paper.

25. Back in the days when the USA was governed by rule of law, Nunes would have been in trouble.

I mean, REAL trouble. Like, resign and prepare to enter the Federal prison system trouble.

As it is, though,he's got nothing to worry about. RICO? Who cares? RICO is for Democrat chumps. Nunes is a Republican, IOKIYAR, and besides the Kavanaugh court will save his ass, or Trump will pardon him if it ever comes to that.

34. Curious behavior

You wouldn't think that all of those conservative fellows would be so united in defense of the current resident. Makes me think the powers that be have something on every one of them. Or maybe it was just a simple kiss on the cheek. It is bizarre. We live in interesting times.

I agree. Need to stop using meaningless words like “collusion” and “quip pro quo” and start using conspiracy, extortion, racketeering, etc.

So yeah, RICO applies.
