“LIBERAL AMERICA” CLAIMS NATHAN DEAL WILL BE INDICTED

By FITSNEWS  ||  When this website says a politician is getting indicted, it happens.  Other websites?  Not so much … which is why they no longer exist.

Anyway, one liberal website is going “all in” on the indictment front – predicting Georgia governor Nathan Deal will go down within the first two weeks of the new year.

The website – Liberal America – says Deal is the subject of a U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) investigation stemming from a pair of former probes, one conducted by the U.S. House (where he served from 1993-2010) and another by the state of Georgia.

The former probe focused on allegations that Deal improperly used his congressional staff to pressure Georgia officials into continuing a vehicle inspection program.  The extension of this program reportedly benefited an auto salvage company owned by Deal to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.  The latter probe?  It focused on allegations that Deal improperly used campaign funds to pay for legal counsel related to the congressional investigation.

Does either case blow our skirt up?  No … but Deal’s involvement in a 2011 South Carolina scandal (the infamous “Savannah River Sellout“) does interest us.  A lot.

Anyway, according to the website, “a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity said that Deal will be indicted on multiple charges and that the case against him is ‘airtight.'”

Another source claims the indictments against Deal will be handed down “no later than January 15, 2015.”

Hmmmm …

Deal’s attorney, Randy Evans, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution the indictment reports were “absurd.”

“We’ve heard nothing from anyone,” Evans told the paper. “There’s no objective evidence of this, and I’m confident that it would be something I would have heard.  There’s been nothing.”

Interesting …

Worth noting?  The AJC has reported in the past on federal investigators issuing subpoenas to Georgia ethics officials regarding the agency’s investigation of Deal’s 2010 gubernatorial campaign.

Not only that, in July 2014 the paper obtained a memo in which the state’s ethics commission director – Holly LaBerge – claimed to have been pressured by Deal’s chief of staff Chris Riley and his chief legal counsel Ryan Teague to “make the complaints (against Deal) go away.”

Fueling the fire?  LaBerge failed to provide the memo to reporters who submitted a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for all documents related to the Deal investigation.

! am not a Republican or Rethuglican I just vote what I think is the lesser of two evils. I am about of the opinion there are no honest politicians left,especially if they have been around for a while. But as crooked as the Federal Government is they should not investigate anyone until they clean up themselves.

No, you’re definitely a Rethuglican. It’s OK, be proud. We run things here in the South.

I am glad you know me better than I do myself.

Me too. We Rethuglicans can sense one of our own is around. It’s like sniffing asses.

You have tunnel vision! You have more crooks in all political parties and government than you have in the rest of the country.
The US Justice Department sweeps more under the rug every year than the rest of the country. This Administration is the most corrupt in my lifetime.

What difference does geographical position play into it? Nothing. Furthermore, there’s not a political party that can claim they’re any more observant of laws than the other. It’s a two headed snake, you rube.

Oh, we own it in the South East. How can you deny it, Pieces of Shit? Just think of how many indictments and convictions there would be if we weren’t running everything down here. You should be happy, DooDoo Issues.

I would list all the Rethuglicans in SC (forget all of the south east) who have pled guilty to various crimes and ethics violations in the last eight years, but there isn’t enough room here. It’s cool though, you’ll keep electing us. Thanks, boy.

I hope if he’s convicted he gets the death penalty and they send Nikki over to screw him to death. I hear she’ll do it for $10k.

The best way for a Governor to get a sweet-heart plea deal is to rat out another Governor, and it would be lovely if it was our gov!
That makes i a two-fer for the prosecutor. And they love that!

And, the Georgia-Pacific/Koch name would come up if any of this is related to both Deal AND Haley and their deal.

Yes, yes, this would be nice, but weren’t WE supposed to get multiple indictments before the end of the year? Oh, I know how exact predictions can go awry a bit, but we were so hoping.

The next Metts news may be of interest though. Wasn’t that scheduled for tomorrow?

Seriously, you might want to present to an ER. Strokes aren’t anything to play with. Since you don’t have any loved ones to recognize your symptoms, I guess it’s up to us FitNews regulars to alert you. Call 911. The Fire Dept can help assist in cutting out a wall or whatever to help the EMTs get you outside and into a waiting ambulance. Don’t worry, it’s not like when you were a young adult. They don’t just drill a hole in your head to let the demons out when you have stroke like symptoms. Medicine (and society) have come a long way since then.

Maybe there’s some method to the madness of the DOJ going so slowly on these cases of GOP gubernatorial corruption.
So many GOP governors are thinking of running for president on the grounds they have shown they are competent executives – HA, HA – when they start being indicted in droves just before 2016, some people – like the MSM, not to mention voters – might take note of the trend…might.
