Department Of Justice Complaint Filed Against Trump And Pam Bondi In Bribery Scandal

A complaint has been filed with the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division against Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over allegations that Trump bribed Bondi to get her drop an investigation into Trump University.


<...>

The complaint filed by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump asks for a DOJ investigation into Trump and Bondi, “The complaint read: “We believe that Pam Bondi, Florida Attorney General, and Donald Trump have violated federal voting laws including but not limited to bribery across state lines by way of a $25,000 campaign contribution from Trump to Bondi during her 2013 election by way of the Trump Foundation in return for AG Bondi dropping an investigation into Trump University. We ask the DOJ to investigate this matter and appreciate their rapid response. Thank you.”

Calls for a criminal probe are growing on both the left and the right. Conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin of The Washington Post asked why Trump wasn’t already under investigation for bribery.

Rubin wrote, “One cannot miss the giant red flag. Why is a charity giving money to aid a pol with whom the foundation’s head has pending legal business? Recall that after the gift was received an official act occurred, the very act Trump had been seeking, namely the decision not to proceed with the case against Trump University. Right there you have a prima facie case of bribery– a payment (an illegal one at that) and a quid pro quo.”

What Trump and Bondi did was about a clear a case of bribing a public official as it gets. Trump should have already been under investigation for bribery, and his status as one of the two people who could be elected as the next US president makes it vital for the FBI or the Department of Justice to put potential concerns about partisan howls aside and investigate the possible criminal activity of the Republican nominee.

2. Now we need one filed in Texas against Trump and Abbott and our AG who is already under indictment

for allegedly defrauding investors before he took office.

16. We need investigations into bribery in both TX and FL

This is blatant bribery and it should be disqualifying.

3. We need charges against trump the sooner the better

 

I've been saying all along that President Obama was serious when he said there is no way Trump would become president. Look for the DOJ to make a move before the election, charges or even the strong hint of criminal charges would scuttle trump's campaign and pretty much hand the election to Hillary.

18. Nope. He would just claim that it was a plot and his followers would agree.

I believed him when he said he could shoot someone in 5th Ave in broad daylight and his followers would simply applaud. But, hopefully if might sway a few 'undecideds'.

20. I don't think he can escape all of his moves. He is a con man and they get caught when enough

people are looking.

6. Get Bondi to give real evidence in exchange for no jail time.

She has to be sacked of course. But I'd trade her testimony for a trump conviction. And only if he gets fully convicted, after his numerous appeals.

He should lose control of his corporations too.

10. We're going to need all of Trump's and Bondi's emails to clear this one up.

Can't wait to hear Trump weasel word his way out of that one.

11. #OrangeIsTheNewOrange seems to me the best option for a great hashtag to cover this scandal.

 

Anyone have a better one?

19. Hello? Hello? Is this the phone number for Loretta Lynch?

Hello? Is this Ms. Lynch?

I'd like to talk with you about the recent allegations of bribery by Mr. Trump. Are you looking at the facts of the case to determine whether your Department will conduct an investigation into these allegations?

Hello? Ms. Lynch? Ms. Lynch? Are you there?
