“Today, we announce criminal charges against Christopher Collins, a United States congressman. Congressman Collins is charged with insider trading and lying to the FBI,” ~US Attorney Geoffrey Berman of the Southern District of New York
Representative Chris Collins (R-NY), Trump’s earliest congressional supporter, who jumped on team Trump on February 24, 2016, and who had been calling for an end to the Mueller investigation…
has been arrested by the FBI, on securities fraud charges, wire fraud, and is charged with making false statements. He surrendered to law enforcement on August 8, 2018.
How ironic it is that Chris Collins had been calling to end the Mueller investigation which, had he succeeded, would have kept him from being indicted.
It would be safe to bet others who are eager to see Mueller “wrap it up” (Nunes) are motivated by worries of succumbing to the same fate.
How unfortunate it is that Representative Collins was unable to change laws against insider trading in time to save himself.
Thoughts and Prayers.
Perhaps in 20 or so years, when he’s released from prison, he can take up the cause again.
First in, first out GOP Rep Chris Collins, a fine example of the political corruption that has become synonymous with Fauxtus 45.
Who will be next?
