Wow. Top prosecutor on Mueller’s team now featured at a fundraiser for Joe Biden’s campaign.
“The former top prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe is headlining a virtual fundraiser for former vice president Joe Biden’s campaign in June. Weissmann, who was dubbed Mueller’s ‘pitbull’ by the New York Times during the investigation of alleged collusion between Trump and Russia, is participating in a ‘virtual fireside chat’ for the Biden campaign next week that will be moderated by Anne Milgram, the former New Jersey attorney general.” (National Review)
Donald Trump, Jr. asked, “Imagine how bad the mainstream media would meltdown if the DOJ lawyer that moved to dismiss the Flynn case left DOJ and hosted a fundraiser for @realDonaldTrump?” (Twitter)
A staffer from the Trump campaign said it “doesn’t get any swampier than this.” (National Review)
It’s worth the reminder that Weissmann previously donated $2,300 to President Obama’s first campaign in 2008 — and yes, that’s before he was appointed to investigate the Trump campaign. (POLITICO)
Philly elections judge found guilty of taking bribes to “stuff ballots” for Democratic candidates in 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections.
“The Justice Department announced Thursday that a former Pennsylvania election official was convicted of accepting $2,500 in bribes to stuff ballots for Democratic candidates for Common Pleas Court judge in Philadelphia. […] He admitted to being directed by an unnamed political consultant to inflate votes for ‘clients and preferred candidates’ in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primaries in exchange for “money and other things of value.” (National Review)
An election judge in Philadelphia said a political consultant had paid him off to cast fraudulent ballots for three Democratic candidates.
As the U.S. Attorney on the case reported in a press release linked from National Review: the judge perpetrated voter fraud by “literally standing in a voting booth and voting over and over, as fast as he could, while he thought the coast was clear.”
The left likes to pretend that vote fraud doesn’t exist — but reality continues to prove them wrong.
Bernie Sanders’ delegates to the Democratic National Convention have to sign a strict pledge. Tell us how that party unity is going…
“After delegate drama in 2016, Democrats aren’t taking any chances this time. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I–Vt.) has asked at least some of his 2020 delegates to sign a pledge saying they won’t denounce Democratic party leaders or other candidates, won’t be argumentative with anyone on social media, and won’t speak to the press without explicit approval.'” (Reason)
Bernie Sanders faced criticism in the 2020 election for the over-the-top behavior of some supporters online.
Often referred to as the “Bernie Bros,” a joking nickname, they’ve been reported to “post angry messages, flood inboxes, rattle off personal attacks, make vague threats, and then move on to their next victim.” (Boston Globe)
Now, as Joe Biden faces a fractured Democratic Party, Sanders is rolling out a strict pledge of behavior for his delegates at the Democratic National Convention. (Reason)
Tell us about that party unity again?
Joe Biden “Veepstakes” continues: Amy Klobuchar is under VP consideration. Progressives aren’t happy.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden has asked Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) to undergo vetting to be a potential running mate, according to a source with knowledge of the discussion.” (The Hill)
Amy Klobuchar is one of several Democrats who’s reportedly part of the VP selection process, but Klobuchar was reportedly a favorite for the VP pick back in April, too. (Daily Wire)
Bernie Sanders publicly said he would have won more primary states if Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg hadn’t dropped out ahead of Super Tuesday … and, in March, he blamed the “power of the establishment to force” Klobuchar out of the race. (Axios)
And progressive groups aren’t excited either — and they may let Biden know that publicly. They’re “privately mulling releasing a letter making it clear their firm belief that Klobuchar should not be in the running for the vice presidential role.” (Newsweek)
