What I am specifically speaking of is the recent attempt of bribery by Rosie O’Donnell. Do I expect anything to be done about it? NOPE! Should there be anything done? YES! Rosie, on Tuesday evening, as the Republicans moved their Tax Reform Package toward a vote and passage, tweeted out offers of bribery to Republican Senators to vote down the bill. She did it repeatedly and to specific Senators which is clearly an attempt to bribe them. One of her tweets was, “so how about this I promise to give 2 million dollars to Senator Susan Collins and 2 million to senator Jeff flake if the vote NO. NO, I WILL NOT KILL AMERICANS FOR THE SUPER RICH.” That is an attempt a bribery and is a felony, from what I can discern.
Bribery is illegal under federal law and the relevant portion of 18 USC §201(b):
(1)directly or indirectly, corruptly gives, offers or promises anything of value to any public official or person who has been selected to be a public official, or offers or promises any public official or any person who has been selected to be a public official to give anything of value to any other person or entity, with intent—
(A) to influence any official act; or
(B) to influence such public official or person who has been selected to be a public official to commit or aid in committing, or collude in, or allow, any fraud, or make opportunity for the commission of any fraud, on the United States; or
(C) to induce such public official or such person who has been selected to be a public official to do or omit to do any act in violation of the lawful duty of such official or person;
…shall be fined under this title or not more than three times the monetary equivalent of the thing of value, whichever is greater, or imprisoned for not more than fifteen years, or both, and may be disqualified from holding any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.
My question is WHEN will the DOJ and the FBI charge Ms. O’Donnell with a federal crime? If we continue to allow this type of activity to go unpunished we will so discredit and dismantle our System of Government and Law Enforcement, we will enter into a state of total anarchy. The Leftist scream about the super-rich and them using their influence, money, and power to force the rest of us into compliance with their objectives. HOW ABOUT YOU MS. O’DONNELL? Are not you, Mr. Clooney, George Soros, and many of the Rich Liberal Leftist not doing exactly that? We are a nation of laws, or we are supposed to be, so Mr. Sessions – GET CRACKING and bring the full power of the law down on her head as a warning to all who would break the law to get what they want.
Can we return to the Rule of Law and return to being the Constitutional Republic that our Framers and Founders established? God help us if we do not wake up and return to sanity in America.
Remember this in November of next year and REFUSE to allow the Democrats to regain power and control in Washington, DC. Also, refuse to allow the Establishment Republicans to remain in control. Let’s find and vote for genuine Constitutional Conservatives who will fight for the Republic and Americans.
God bless you and God bless America!
