If this wasn't a bribe for a pardon, I don't what would be:



Trump pardoned a guy named Paul Pogue, in Feb. this year.

Pogue, the founder and executive of McKinney, Texas-based construction company Pogue Construction, pleaded guilty in 2010 for under-reporting his taxable income in 2004, 2005 and 2006,[49] failing to pay more than $400,000 taxes owed.


In 2019, Pogue's son Ben Pogue and daughter-in-law Ashleigh Pogue gave a total of $238,541 to Trump Victory, a vehicle for Trump's reelection campaign.
Former Republican Senator Rick Santorum was a leading advocate for Pogue's pardon; Paul Pogue had been a contributor to Santorum's presidential election bid.

Trump's MO with money is to have it go thru a couple of legit orgs, then end up where he can put his paws on it. That's how he paid Ivanka for consulting services at the same time she was being paid by taxpayers for being his "Assistant" in the WH. The money went to her consulting firm.
All the Russian money, same type of deal, same as his various henchmen....Flynn, Briody, etc.
I hope his list of pardons is gonna be looked at..

3. This shit's going to be 24/7

Not for us, we can forget about him.
But this kind of crap and dozens of other criminal/civil actions are going to consume him - and I hope, eventually bankrupt him - for the rest of his miserable life.

5. Wasn't it reported

that Donations, in just the past month, have raised 170 Million for his "personal" PAC which is nothing more than a slush fund for his personal spending........

It is hard to keep track of all that is being revealed. It is a Massive amount of graft going on, all of it un-believeable and un-fathomable at the breadth and depth of it all..........

7. Supposedly Legal Defence PAC



which, in fine print, sez the money can go to a couple of other PACs.
He knows how to get the $$ into his wallet. Remember, he is having to pay huge interest payments on a few loans on his buildings, before the GIANT principle payment is due in a few short months.

4. THERE WAS NO QUID PRO QUO Either!!

I don't expect that anybody who hasn't abandoned him yet, will do so over this.

So long as he's somehow Owning The Libs with these pardons, they're fine with the MAGA Nutballs.
