FEC Clear TFG in Stormy Daniels Case.

In one of the most disgusting and totally biased suspensions of the Law, the FEC has decided NOT to prosecute Trump for ordering Michael Cohen to violate federal campaign laws on his behalf.
The board has 3 from each party. One Republican recused, one Democrat wasn't present (no reason given) so the 2 remaining Republicans claimed it was a "waste of agency resources." Since the vote was tied, they cannot proceed and Trump is off the hook, yet again.

Unfortunately, YT, I think you're going to have to get used to typing that phrase a lot.

I agree. I’m not optimistic. It’s going to be interesting next four years, but trump is looking to be the republican candidate. If he’s got that kind of pull, he is not going to be convicted. In all the cases people want to prosecute him for why are none moving ahead quickly? One would think if there was clear evidence and a path to conviction t would be behind bars already. No, it won’t happen, our legal system is also a political system whether we like it or not. It’s a stalemate.

Sadly that's the way the Federal Election Commission was designed by both parties, it's toothless. A lot of the election crimes are misdemeanors, a slap on the wrist not a felony which some should be.

Yet you could bet your first-born that if they were ruling on a Democrat, they'd be saying "Hang 'em!"

Our system is more broken than it's ever been. It's been burned down but all Trump did was light a bunch of matches. The bonfires were ready and covered with gas.
