Donald Trump offered senator money to end Patriots Spygate investigation

The New England Patriots' infamous Spygate videotape cheating scandal happened nearly 15 years ago, but apparently there's still more we don't know about it. And the new details are pretty juicy.

According to Don Van Natta Jr. and Seth Wickersham of ESPN, Donald Trump met with the late Senator Arlen Specter in 2008, nearly a decade before Trump's presidency, and offered him "money in Palm Beach" if he dropped his investigation into Spygate. Trump was reportedly acting on behalf of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

Spokespeople for Trump and Kraft denied the allegation that either man tried to influence Specter's investigation.

"This is completely false," said Jason Miller, a senior adviser to Trump. "We have no idea what you're talking about." Miller declined to answer a series of follow-up questions. A Patriots spokesman said Kraft "never asked Donald Trump to talk to Arlen Specter on his behalf."

And of course Jason (Balloonhead) Miller would never lie.

1. Of course.

All the people I loathe are all connected...Bob Kraft, Stone, Trump, Repuke Senators, the Patriots.....


Trump and Specter also were linked by a mutual friend: Roger Stone. Stone had served as chairman of Specter's 1996 presidential campaign, and Trump later hired Stone to again help with political activities, a role that would lead to his conviction on charges of lying to Congress in connection with Robert Mueller's investigation of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. Stone, whose sentence was commuted by Trump in July 2020, declined repeated requests to comment for this story. He has said he often lobbied Specter on an array of issues.
