Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife indicted for using campaign funds for personal expenses.

Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife, Margaret, were indicted Tuesday on charges related to the misuse of $250,000 worth of campaign funds for personal expenses and the filing of false campaign finance records.

The charges of wire fraud, falsifying records, campaign finance violations and conspiracy were the culmination of a Department of Justice investigation that has stretched for more than a year, during which the Republican congressman from California has maintained his innocence.
Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
Senior White House officials were aware of the impending announcement and bracing for the Hunter news to join a slew of bad news stories that have hit the White House all at once, according to a source familiar with the matter.

Hunter was a founding member of the "Trump Caucus" in the House during the 2016 campaign, and alongside Rep. Chris Collins, was the first of two sitting congressmen to endorse Trump for President back in February 2016. Collins was indicted earlier this month on insider trading charges.
I wonder when deplorable number three will be indicted. :lol:

The swamp is Trumpism. And the FBI is draining it. But seriously, this, Manafort, and Cohen all landing on the same day is just eerie. Gloating may be immature, but... suck it you orange scrotum.

It's pretty brilliant that he apparently put every single illegal expense right onto his campaign credit card, it looks like his wife borrowed the card some. So it's like an absolute paper trail. Brilliant pair of people.

Evidently Trump has a knack for collecting people just as intelligent and ethical as himself.
