Ukrainian Oligarch Paid $700,000 To The Husband Of A House Judiciary Committee Democrat
[THEFEDERALIST] Robert Powell, the husband of Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, D-Fla., reportedly took $700,000 from a Ukrainian oligarch named Igor Kolomoisky. Mucarsel-Powell sits on the House Judiciary Committee, the committee that drafted two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump
...dictatorial for repealing some (but not all) of the diktats of his predecessor, misogynistic because he likes pretty girls, homophobic because he doesn't think gender bending should be mandatory, truly a man for all seasons......
for his alleged abuse of power with regards to Ukraine.

In 2018, the Daily Beast reported that a number of businesses linked to Kolomoisky hired Powell as an attorney. One of those firms paid Powell at least $700,000 over two years, according to public records.

The Miami Herald reported Powell was working for companies tied to Kolomoisky for 10 years. Powell made most of his money in the two years leading up to his wife’s election in 2018.

Kolomoisky has been accused of contract killings and embezzlement in the past. Yet, in 2018 when Mucarsel-Powell was running for her seat, she did not see her husband’s work as relevant to her campaign.

"Debbie Mucrasel-Powell is running for Congress, not her husband. To imply that Debbie has anything to do with her indirect shareholder of a parent company that once employed her husband is an enormous stretch," said Michael Hernandez, senior communications advisor for her campaign in 2018.

While Mucrasel-Powell may have convinced her constituents that her husband’s work is unrelated, it is a clear conflict in the current impeachment of Trump. Mucarsel-Powell voted to impeach Trump.

#1 Ukraine = Uniparty's Pinata.

Dems, you don't really want this slime to emerge from your impeachment Shitshow, do you?

Can we stop treating Ukraine as a political football and source of wealth for shi!tty politicians, and start taking Russia's security concerns in the region seriously?

#7 handling charges...

"Hey, I got expenses."

One of the great things about the Trumpening is that masks are coming off, facades are being ripped down, and we are getting a glimpse of how the game is played.

#8 Re #7: The comment "One of the great things about the Trumpening is that masks are coming off" reminds me of a passage from Luke Chapter 2: "a sign that will be spoken against, so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed."

God writes straight with crooked lines.

Truer words were never spoken.

A rare moment in history when the broader society recognizes that it's being led by corrupt and mendacious morons whose absurd rhetoric has no connection to reality.

#11 In fact, much of the time our Uniparty's rhetoric conceals an exact opposite reality. A few examples:

"Democracy dies in darkness" = Press corps' omertà re Deep State/Dem corruption

"Nation-building" & "Democracy promotion" = undermining the American nation via pointless, botched, multi-decade interventions

"Diversity" and "Inclusion" = Suppression and exclusion of opposing views

"Killer Cops" and "Black Lives Matter" = Cop-killers, no one else's life matters

"I believe her" = Who needs due process and other constitutional rights, anyway?

etc

#12 "Sanctuary city" = No sanctuary/safe place from illegal alien thugs and criminals

"Religion of Peace" = Doctrine of terror

"God's children" = devil's spawn

"Diversity makes us strong" = uncontrolled unskilled immigration destroys our working class, our communities, our public schools, our hospitals, our rule of law, our ...

etc
