Is Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi In Prison Yet? Sure... Right Next To Rick Snyder's Cell


Hillary isn't my idea of an honest politician but her level of crookedness is nowhere near Trump's

As we mentioned last weekend, Pam Bondi took a bribe from Donald Trump to halt an investigation into his fraudulent Trump "University" scheme. In fact, she directly solicited the $25,000 bribe from Trump-- an absolute quid pro quo for shutting down her office's investigation. By Monday, AP was painting a rather bleak picture of Biondi in action, now a Trump campaign surrogate. AP made it clear that Bondi "personally solicited a political contribution from Donald Trump around the same time her office deliberated joining an investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University and its affiliates." The $25,000 was funneled to her PAC-- And Justice For All, illegally, through a tax-deductible charity, a Trump family foundation, on Sept. 17, 2013-- four days after Bondi's office publicly announced she was considering joining a New York state probe of Trump University's activities. As soon as she basically shook Trump down for the $25,000 her office claimed there was "insufficient grounds to proceed." That in spite of "thousands of pages of records related to consumer complaints about Trump University and its affiliates filed with Bondi's office... Many of the Trump-related consumers alleged that they paid money for training materials and personalized instruction which were never delivered." Bind lied to the media and claimed she only got one complain, when in fact, there were at least 20.
The timing of the donation by Trump is notable because the now presumptive Republican presidential nominee has said he expects and receives favors from politicians to whom he gives money.

"When I want something I get it," Trump said at an Iowa rally in January. "When I call, they kiss my ass. It's true."

In addition to the money given by his foundation, Trump himself has donated $253,500 since in Florida since 1999, most of it going to Republican candidates, the state party or political committees affiliated with GOP officials. His daughter, Ivanka Trump, also gave a $500 check to Bondi a week before her father's money came in, as well as another $25,000 to the Republican Party of Florida the following year.
Ivanka is notorious for funneling Trump family money to the sleaziest and most corrupt politicians Trump is working. Donald Norcross, brother of New Jersey political machine boss George Norcross, has accepted over ten thousand dollars in bribes from Ivanka while Papa Trump was scamming tax benefits for his New Jersey properties-- not just in Atlantic City but nonsense like calling his golf courses "goat farms" so they could get agricultural tax deductions. She gave another $10,000 to the New Jersey Democratic Party at the same time. Ivanka has also contributed generously to the most blatantly corrupt cash-on-delivery whores in Washington-- from career criminals Chuck Schumer and John McCain to Charlie Rangel and Cory Booker. And, of course tens of thousands to the DCCC, RNC, DSCC, NRCC, NRSC... the whole array of crooked Beltway money machines that have shamelessly sucked up to the Trump family for years.

The Orlando Sentinel's Scott Maxwell has been holding Bondi's feet to the fire by comparing her corruption in this case with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's devotion to protecting the New Yorkers who were scammed and fleeced by Trump, while Bondi, classic gangster style, was just looking to get a cut from herself. This week Sentinel readers got to think about this statement:
It was wildly unethical for her to accept this money. No self-respecting prosecutor would take money from a potential target... It's time for an independent investigator to probe this.... [I]f you want to try to defend Bondi's actions, try finishing this sentence for me: "I think it is perfectly appropriate for a prosecutor to take big chunks of money from someone she has been asked to investigate because ...."

If you can finish that sentence with a straight face, OK. I can't.

And you know what?

I don't think Pam Bondi can either.

I have repeatedly asked her to explain why she thinks her actions were appropriate.

She has yet to provide an answer... probably because she knows there isn't a legitimate one.

I had two friends that worked for Alex Law and I just saw Sanders State Chair supported Norcross and both friends complained that Sanders didn't seem to care about supporting local races other than endorsing candidates .I am a Sanders supporter and pay attention but this election cycle is showing me $$$$$ Trumps ( pun intended ) everything
