DOJ investigating alleged scheme involving bribe offered in exchange for presidential pardon

The Department of Justice is investigating allegations of a possible “bribery conspiracy scheme” in which “a substantial political contribution” was offered in exchange for a presidential pardon, according to heavily redacted court documents unsealed Tuesday.

What are the details?

CNN reported that the filings submitted in late August do not “reveal a timeline of the alleged scheme, or any names of people potentially involved, except that communications between people including at least one lawyer were seized from an office that was raided sometime before the end of the summer.”

No one appears to have yet been charged with any crimes, but the DOJ stated that “over fifty digital media devices, including iPhones, iPads, laptops, thumbs drives, and computer external hard drives” were seized in a probe involving what the government called a “secret lobbying scheme.”

The documents also pointed to “a related bribery conspiracy scheme in which [redacted] would offer a substantial political contribution in exchange for a presidential pardon or reprieve of sentence for [redacted].”

The White House declined to comment to CNN on the report.

An unnamed DOJ official did tell Fox News that “no government official was or is currently a subject or target of the investigation in this filing.”

Anything else?

President Donald Trump has faced scrutiny from Democrats for some of the pardons he has issued, particularly those granted to allies who were targeted by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into allegations of Russian interference with the 2016 election — namely former campaign adviser Roger Stone and former national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn.

But Trump has only granted 28 pardons and 16 commutations of sentences during his four years in office, which is fewer than any president in more than 100 years.

    1. Ass hole, they are NOT even in office yet. This happened in the summer of 2020. Who knew who would win. This is fall out from inside the White House from a former employee that undoubtedly was pissed off at Trump.!!!!!

  1. Democrats trying to entrap the President once again. It’s time that the President gives himself, his family, his party and his White House people ALL pardons, knowing the Demoncrats are going to go after them if he is out of office.

  2. I have never witnessed a more corrupt political party than today’s democrat and DNC. 4 RUSSIAN HOAX DEBUNKED, FALSE FISAL INFO GIVEN TO JUDGES DESTROYING GEN.FLYNN, ROGER STONE, PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FAMILY ATTACKED BY DEMOCRATIC MEDIA WITH LIES AND UNSUBSTANTIATED REPORTS. CROOKED FBI, CIA, NSA ALL CAUGHT. NOONE EVER GOES TO PRISON EXCEPT REPUBLICANS

    1. But they managed to STEAL the presidential election didn’t they?
      I do not understand how they keep this up and none of them go to jail!

  3. Book all Democrats! Start over. We need a re-do of the entire Democratic Party.
    We need the Supreme Court. Of this land to declare the election invalid.
    It’s simple to me. Have another vote for President with no mail in ballots. Voters show of at the ballad box. Get President Trumps 70million votes back.

  4. has trump done any worse than obama, hillery & the rest of the democratic scum that brought America down to its knees? you people covered for every democrats crime against the American people but yet you choose to hang trump when trump straightened up your slack.you never let him along to do his job instead you bash him in every way possible for 4 years.you will meet God one day, try explaining that to God. every one of you democrats are eat up with the devils ways.
