    Actually, Flynt got one of them, but it wasn't just Flynt. There were a good number of them who ended up in trouble over their own sexual behavior. And if Congress intended to shut him down, they didn't do a very good job; he's still offering a bounty on anyone who can nail any politician on sexual misconduct.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hustler magazine is looking for some scandalous sex in Washington again -- and willing to pay for it.

    “Have you had a sexual encounter with a current member of the United States Congress or a high-ranking government official?” read a full-page advertisement taken out by Larry Flynt’s pornographic magazine in Sunday’s Washington Post.

    It offered $1 million for documented evidence of illicit intimate relations with a congressman, senator or other prominent officeholder. A toll-free number and e-mail address were provided.

    The last time Flynt made such an offer was in October 1998 during the drive to impeach President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

    In the following months, the pornographic publishing mogul threatened to expose one or two members of the Republican Congress pushing for the impeachment, according to media reports at the time.

    That long-awaited expose, published months after Clinton’s trial, dropped no bombshells, according to a 1999 Slate.com article, but Flynt’s efforts played a role in the resignation of House-speaker designate Bob Livingston of Louisiana.

    The most notable figure taken down was Newt Gingrich, whose kinky behavior made Bill Clinton look like a monk.

    I remember an unofficial list of about 20 and growing .. And with some of the agendas being pushed to be accepted as the norm makes me wonder if it isn't a grand cyoa scheme to get it accepted by as many as possible before the hammer comes down on them ..

    They really don't care, anymore. Trump is an extreme case, but he's far from the only one.

    There was a product I tried a few years ago. It was an over the counter natural product derived from tobacco to quit smoking but when folks started taking it other effects were noticed, it killed inflammation in the body .. So I heard about it and saw some testimony and tried it, after a week joint pain I had disappeared. I felt 10-15 yrs younger .Turns out after testing it cured chrones, heart vessels from building up plaque, even alzeimers causing brain plaque from inflammation was being reduced, anything from inflammation .. The DOD, NFL were doing studies on head injury. I was so impressed with my results I bought 4000 shares of stock, Fred Couples approached the company to volunteer to offer his testimony and ended up being sponsored them, remember he had the bad back but made a big comeback . I said all that to say this. Big Pharma wasn't going to have it and they aimed all their guns at it full blitz.. I was doing a little day trading back then and the lies coming out against it were incredible , there were even a couple paid hacks that covered the stocks message board to shoot down anyone who come out in favor of it .. Ended up running the business out of the state, then off the over the counter and off the market by the DEA. Then eventually out of the country even though the testing continued .. The one hack told me to get out he liked me and that it was over , the stock spiraled down due to excessive short selling . He was right and I got out later after losing a couple thousand . I relate the same thing being done to
    Trump ..Here's an old Boomer commercial ..

    Media admit that the Hill's Russia probes seem to be going nowhere

    The congressional investigations into possible collusion between the Trump team and Russia seem to be going nowhere fast.

    The Hill committees have been at it for many months now and haven’t come up with much of anything.

    Things have reached the point where the New York Times, in an above-the-fold piece yesterday, is clearly signaling that the investigators are coming up empty-handed.

    But while the Times offers numerous reasons why the probes are stalled, there is no mention of another possible explanation: that there isn’t much there to find.

    Now I don’t know exactly what the committees have found. And I don’t know what Robert Mueller and his team of prosecutors have found. People like Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort appear to have problems, and just yesterday came an NBC report that the special counsel is investigating Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta. (His firm says it’s fully cooperating.)

    But potential charges about improper payments and lobbying aren’t the same as the core question of whether Trump aides and associates colluded with Moscow to influence the election. The one instance we know about, the meeting with Russian lawyers arranged by Donald Trump Jr., didn’t lead to anything. And the White House by all indications is cooperating with Mueller.

    Again, I draw no premature conclusions. But administration officials, addressing what the president calls a “witch hunt,” have privately wondered what the media will do if it turns out there’s no there there.

    ---------------------------------------------

    Said it before. If any evidence had turned up it would have been leaked the same day. You can bet your sweet bippy on that.

    The leftists are as unhinged as ever on this. Grand Inquisitor Mueller will find no collusion between Trump and Russia, but there will be indictments for something. With tens of thousands of pages of vaguely defined and obscure federal laws and regulations ANYONE can be found guilty of something. Governments and political hacks don't change. "Show me the man and I'll find you the crime."

    Seth Rich's murder and proper investigation is coming soon imo .. The bad part is Bernie ''our self proclaimed great defender of the little guy'' knows Seth put his life on the line to expose crooked Hillary and the DNC and was murdered on account of his support for fair play yet Bernie also flushed him like a toilet .. May all those criminals be overcome with fear and be exposed by the light then cast out and prosecuted , including the RINO's ..

    'Collusion' claims boomerang on Dems as Hillary, Obama face fresh allegations
    [​IMG]

    What is the Russia-Clinton uranium deal?
    What's the latest on a controversial uranium deal with Russia that was brokered during Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    After months of battling back accusations of collusion with Moscow in last year’s presidential campaign, Republicans say Democrats are the ones who now have “some explaining to do” as fresh developments raise questions about their own Russia connections.

    First came reports that the FBI knew about a Russian bribery plot tied to nuclear energy interests in the U.S. well before the Obama administration OK’d a mining company sale to a Russian firm, giving it partial control over American uranium reserves.

    Then came a report that Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is looking at the dealings of Tony Podesta, a powerful Democratic lobbyist and the brother of former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

    Meanwhile, Fusion GPS, the firm behind the controversial anti-Trump dossier, has gone to court to block Congress from getting its bank records after its representatives pleaded the Fifth in a Capitol Hill appearance last week.

    Hillary Clinton on Monday brushed off the revival of the uranium deal controversy as “baloney” meant to distract from GOP controversies.

    But Republicans beg to differ.

    “Now it’s the Democrats who have some explaining to do,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a statement overnight. “I hope they will cooperate with the investigation, be forthcoming with the American people and I expect the media to cover these new developments with the same breathless intensity that they have given to this investigation since day one.”

    NBC News first reported early Monday that Tony Podesta and The Podesta Group are now subjects in the special counsel’s Russia investigation, following inquiries regarding former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s finances.

    House GOP chairmen announce probe of Obama’s Justice Dept

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican chairmen of two House committees announced Tuesday they’re opening an investigation into actions the Obama administration Justice Department took during last year’s presidential election.

    The chairmen said in a statement Tuesday they have several questions, including why then-FBI Director James Comey decided to publicly announce the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information but not to publicly announce the investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign associates.


    Other questions the Republican lawmakers said they want addressed revolve around the decision not to file criminal charges against Clinton. The lack of charges remains a lingering grievance for Trump, who for months has held it up as an example of a “rigged” criminal justice system that shielded his Democratic opponent from punishment for her use of a private server for government business.

    That's funny, I saw Gingrich on television just last night. Some day you need to learn that when you cast one of your pompous aspersions some form of support should also be offered.

    ABC News reports that Flynn is prepared to testify President Trump directed him to make contact with Russians and have them create a phony dossier. Oh wait that was Hillary Clinton.

    Not in this life. But the next that awaits her unless she is called by God to his son, is inescapable. And all the money she has that keeps her Teflon coated from prosecution, God only knows the bodies piled up to insure that too, will be of no avail.

    Do tell. :)
    Mueller is besties with Comey. How this special investigator is let to continue in light of the fact he should be investigating his best friend above all else should send up warning flags across the justice system landscape.

    You are right. Remember that time the FBI failed to enforce the law & lied by omission to the American people -when they exonerated Hillary before she was even interviewed? Where is true justice?

    It waits in the wings for you and me. The common people who's taxes pay those who screw us, and let the screwdrivers run amok and destroy America. As planned.

    From JFK to MLK to Dorothy Kilgallen to JFK Jr to Vince Foster to Justice Scalia to Seth Rich .. And multiples of other murders and cover-ups surrounding deep state characters such as the Bush's and Clintons even Obama .. The amounts of death threats to President Trump and unusual oppositions ? How can anyone with at least half a mind not think listening to foreign intelligence agencies if they suggest they have info on Clinton and Obama who had already voted abstained from supporting our friend Israel for the first time in UN history ..If I'm Trump, me and my family received threats knowing what the Deep State is capable of I'M WILLING TO LISTEN TO ANYBODY about those criminals .. And anyone who disagrees is imo STUPID .. :screwloose2

    The Russian lawyer Veselnitskaya had said she had important info , Who wouldn't be interested but that turned out to be nothing .. Flynn, I don't know but he's being tortured mentally by Mueller also imo , remember Susan McDougal refusing to lie/testify for Ken Star and getting thrown in jail ? Yeah, the deep state comes in both colors so don't play politics with me .. I pray the Lord Jesus that President Trump will be led by God to bring all the murders and sleeze to open court on these matters beginning with why Seth Rich's murder never received a proper investigation and willing to use all information from where ever including the 3 Awan brothers who were in charge of IT for Wasserman and the democrats ..

    This is diversion. Why not go after what is actually documented criminality? Hillary Clinton and her illegal computer at her home while she was serving under Obama. And Comey, who violated federal law giving private documents to a judge of all people. And so that that source could then release those documents to the media in an effort to smear Trump. And that's just the start on Comey.
    And how about Lynch? Who colluded with Hillary's husband to give her a pass? Real offenses. Not the boogeyman evil Russians fixed the election myth.
    These people are backing up Hillary's own whining book, Why I Lost the Election. It was everyone elses fault but hers.

    This is a very personal charge against Flynn and not the administration...This is about something that occurred in December after [President Trump] was already elected. How can anything associating with flynn's lying be tied to trumps collusion with russia to be elected, when he was already elected?
