FBI has now been given sworn testimony and documents alleging Bachmann approved secret payments

FBI has now been given sworn testimony and documents alleging Bachmann approved secret payments

While Congresswoman Michele Bachmann was announcing her retirement to much fanfare in the media, according to information given exclusively to Take Action News, the FBI was busy collecting potentially damaging evidence against her from two former campaign aides.

According to sources close to the criminal investigation of Bachmann's presidential campaign, the FBI has now been given sworn testimony and documents alleging Bachmann approved secret payments to Iowa state Senator Kent Sorenson in exchange for his help and support in that state's 2012 Presidential caucuses. Ethics rules explicitly prohibit Iowa lawmakers from accepting payments from Presidential campaigns or PACs. Investigation sources tell Take Action News the FBI is examining money laundering allegations against Bachmann, as well as possible wire fraud and mail fraud.

As we detailed on my nationally syndicated radio and YouTube show Take Action News this past Saturday, the key claims against Bachmann are coming from two of her former campaign insiders -- former Congressional chief of staff Andy Parrish and former national field coordinator Pete Waldron. Waldron has filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission, alleging the payments to State Senator Sorenson were improper. Parrish has provided an affidavit to investigators, confirming Bachmann knew of and approved the payments.

14. She's been targeted, obviously.

 

Dems do the same, every single day. Democrats have all the power and, now, with the WH and IRS, they're persecuting the Republicants.

Sorry, that's all I've got.

5. Don't you know - Obama got to those guys

He set the whole thing up just to discredit Bachmann because he is deathly afraid of her.

While he was plotting to get 4 Americans killed in Benghazi, use the IRS to investigate tea party groups and intimidate the press.

6. Hmm, wonder when Issa will start investigating this?

I'm guessing it will be about the time that flowers bloom in the Artic during the winter. Those congressional hacks and criminals have each other's backs, just as long as they have an R beside their names.

7. Parish gave her ample opportunity to pay him what she owed him

And he warned her what he would go if she stiffed him. But she's an idiot.

9. Hoping she spends jail time over this!

 

Will set a damn good precedent for all those other teabaggin' fucking cheater liars. I bet each one of them useless assholes have something like this in their portfolio and I am hoping they are all shiting their shitfilled pants and looking over their shoulders for what might be coming after them.

13. Nobody can make those crazy eyes 24/7/365 and still be sane.

 

She's practiced so long that it's become a permanent condition.

11. Boy, she's lucky she and her husband didn't take any money from the Fedrul Gubmint.

Oh, Wait.

  • Marcusss' clinic gets more than $137,000 in Medicaid each year, even though Dr. Bachmann doesn't have a license.

  • Marcusss' dad's dairy farm in WI may have been more profitable as a source of Federal Farm subsidy payments than it was as a producing farm.

  • Michele and Marcusss took state funding and all the tax breaks coming when they took in 23 foster children.


Hope the I.R.S. doesn't get into trouble for checking in to any of that.
