House Ethics Committee halts Grimm probe. They just saved his ass

But not for long, since it seems he's headed for a PMITA

The Department of Justice has asked the Committee to defer consideration of this matter and the Committee, following precedent, unanimously voted to defer consideration of this matter at this time,

The FBI apparently began looking into Grimm (himself a former FBI agent) following a January New York Times article that raised questions about the role an aide to Manhattan Rabbi Yoshiyahu Yosef Pinto played in Grimm's campaign.

The DOJ asked the house to hold up, not to save his ass, but to make sure they roast it properly. The House Ethics committee can only get the ball rolling on tossing him out. The DOJ can put him in PMITA prison.

Several members of the rabbi's congregation said that either Grimm or Pinto's aide, Ofer Biton, "told them that the campaign would find a way to accept donations that were over the legal limit, were given in cash or were given by foreigners without green cards." In August, Biton was arrested by the FBI for lying on immigration documents.

Biton must be giving them the goods on the Israeli cash train.

I think the joke was a pun on "grim probes", hence the ass joke.

/but who knows, I'm just subby
//yes, the joke isn't funny when you need to explain it.
///it's early, stop mocking me!!!

Good. We need to put all our investigative resources into finding out how Benghazi can be blamed on Obama.

Sometimes a previous employer doesn't like to hear it's guy is accused and wants to investigate thoroughly. Then there's Sheriff Joe.

Exactly, thing of the House Ethics Committee, as sort of a Student Council Honors Board. They're good for the small stuff, but when the cops show up and say they want the perp for questioning, shiat just got real, so the committee backs off and lets the pros do their thing.

Don't be silly. Why would we get all tough on election fraud? I mean, that's how we won the election! Millions of fraudulent votes cast by thousands of fraudulent voters who got to the polls because they didn't need picture ID.

Wait, we're all libtards in here, right? Cool. I wouldn't want the conservatives to get a whiff of the conspiracy.
