    This guy is just A glutton. He's been investigated before. He's just greedy. And if they don't get him this time he won't stop. And his wife should get locked up too. He'll be too soft to say take me and let my wife walk.

    As a lifetime democrat, if you are found guilty, you must bear the consequences including jail time. We dont need anyone to drag our democratic party down into the gutter.

    I wait to see although in the meantime you should step aside and ask for a speedy trial to prove your innocence.

    Of course he would deny stepping down.
    Why should he?
    He's a no-good rotten criminal who created legislation to exempt himself from prosecution or being fired all these years!
    If 1/10 th of what was said about what he did is proved to be true, he betrayed his country and is guilty of treason!
    He should not only be thrown out of office, but be dealt with in the most harsh way according to the USMCJ which would govern the Tribunal to decide his fate.
    But, he's a Demonrat.
    And we suspect that he, just like Joe Biden, is protected by the network of Demmonrat Criminals and RINOs who are guilty of the exact same crimes!

    We democrats don't stand behind crooks. You don't get the team to rally around your crimes like the republicans. Resign we need at least one party that's honest
