Don't worry - Louie Ghomert is going to fix everything.

He would release them, but those donor records are "under audit"

Hey, worked for TFG

The FBI probably already knows who his donors are.

Ken Paxton screwed himself.

"The attorney general's campaign blamed the holdup on tech issues. It promised to give a full report once the problem gets fixed, whenever that is."

Difficulty with this, I'm sure...

Gitmo, then waterboarding, until he confesses his Russian connections and gives up his handler.

Only way to deal with terrorist suspects.

Damn and I had $1000 in Confederate money I was going to send him.    Very few people take old southern dime store money anymore.  Used to be 10 bills for a dime.

I'm no kind of law talking mage but wouldn't lying about technical problems constitute an obstruction of justice?

It would in a state where the Attorney General wasn't the one obstructing justice.

Being under investigation by the FBI is only Stage 2.  Stage 1 is having a felony-level fraud trial delayed for six and a half years (and counting), because every judge and DA in Texas is in your pocket.  And some Stage 1.5 for other crimes he never actually got charged for.

Let me know when it reaches the lymph nodes.

Huh. I had a comment ready but then realized I had him confused with Ken Pullman.

His wife is a state senator currently running for reelection.  Her opponents are putting up signs that say Google Texas Senate Bill 860

He's not lying, he's exercising his right to not incriminate himself. Yeah, that's the ticket! Slam-dunk! No more GOTCHA questions there. Perfect defense!

*sigh* fine. But this better not turn into a "thing" for me.

So what. Citizens United makes it all legal.
No limits
No source disclosure
What have I missed.
 
2022-01-27 7:13:22 PM  
Probably a bunch of Russian nationals on his donor list

Wow, that's pretty damn blatant, even by Republican "standards."

What exactly is the FBI waiting on with this asshole? It's been literal years.
 
2022-01-27 7:58:06 PM  
Get a load of this guy...
He's also out there trying to get judges killed as he publically insights to name them for not allowing him to proceed on bogus election fraud cases
Seriously, authoritarianism is a blight on humanity and this clown wraps himself in its flag.
 
2022-01-27 9:03:22 PM  
And he has the nerve to call other people "Soros-funded"! I bet HE's Soros-funded. Every accusation is a confession with these guys.
 
2022-01-27 9:08:03 PM  
Riiiight.  He's been "under investigation"

Well you see, these things take time...blah blah blah.

Merrick Garland is very busy ignoring other things.

When your FELONY TRIAL gets deferred for almost seven years, someone should probably investigate the people who keep moving the venue, rescheduling, appealing, second apppealing, moving the venue again, appealing that, second appealing that, etc etc etc.

Kris_Romm: someone should probably investigate the people


Another investigation

To strut and fret its hour upon the stage

And then is heard no more: it is a tale

Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

Signifying nothing.
