Conservative attorney reveals Duncan Hunter’s ‘colossal stupidity’ with devastating timeline of his actions

Published

on

Conservative attorney Gabriel Malor, who in the past has written legal analyses for right-wing publications such as The Federalist and the Washington Examiner, found himself in awe at the latest Department of Justice filings leveled against indicted Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA).

In court filings made on Tuesday, the DOJ alleged that Hunter illegally used money donated to his congressional campaign to “carry out a series of intimate relationships” with women who were all involved in politics, including three registered lobbyists and one of his own staff members.

After reading the DOJ’s allegations, Malor created a timeline of Hunter’s actions, which he said demonstrated the congressman’s “colossal stupidity.”

“JAN 2009 – Assumes office,” Malor begins, referring to the beginning of Hunter’s tenure in the United States House of Representatives. “APR 2009 to APR 2012 – Has affair he pays for with campaign cash. AUG 2012 to OCT 2015 – Another, another (staffer), another. AUG 2016 – OCE [Office of Congressional Ethics] recommends investigation. SEP 2016 – ANOTHER!”

In other words, according to the DOJ’s telling of events, Hunter continued to use campaign cash to pay for expenses related to his affairs even after the Office of Congressional Ethics declared that he should be investigated.

“Rep. Hunter is alleged to have misused campaign funds for one of his affairs AFTER the ethics investigation began,” Malor wrote. “What did he think was happening?”

He then turned to Hunter’s attempts to blame his wife, Margaret Hunter, for any campaign cash that was illegally spent on personal expenses.

“Let’s not mention the colossal stupidity of doing all this and then taking the first opportunity to blame it on his wife,” Malor wrote. “Again, what did he think was going to happen next?”

Trump lawyers ‘opened the door’ for him to testify — here are the questions George Conway would ask

Published

on

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway took to the pages of The Washington Post to lay out the case for why President Donald Trump should testify in his impeachment trial.

"There is an important missing witness in the impeachment of President Trump, and his last name, for all the fulminations of the president’s defenders, isn’t Biden. No, that witness is Trump himself — and the best case for calling him has been established by an argument advanced by the president’s own lawyers," Conway wrote.

Published

While White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham refuses to hold press briefings, senior counselor Kellyanne Conway has been willing to talk to the press. That is unless the press asks questions she doesn't want to answer.

Such was the case Friday when Conway came to the briefing room to answer questions by reporters. When CNN's Jim Acosta asked if the White House was holding back evidence on Ukraine, Conway was annoyed. She started to lecture Acosta.
