This FBI investigation could destroy the Democrat Party
Democrats believe the 2018 elections are the first step in removing Donald Trump from office.
Those dreams were dashed.
That’s because one FBI investigation could destroy the Democrat Party in 2018.
Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum won the Democrat Party nomination for Governor in Florida.
Gillum won after Bernie Sanders endorsed him.
He will take on Congressman Ron DeSantis.
DeSantis won the GOP nomination after Donald Trump endorsed him.
The media painted the Gillum-DeSantis matchup as a preview of 2020.
Gillum supports the far-left platform the Democrats will run on.
He backs abolishing ICE, impeaching Trump, and government run health care.
DeSantis is a strong supporter of the Make America Great Again agenda.
The media believes if Gillum wins, it means swing voters have turned against the President.
But Gillum has one problem.
Tallahassee city officials are under FBI investigation for corruption.
And the scandal could bring down Gillum.
The Tampa Bay Times reports:
Starting in 2015, FBI agents came to town posing as businessmen considering investments in the city of Tallahassee. The three men, who reportedly identified themselves as Mike Sweets, Mike Millerand Brian Butler, spent months cozying up to city officials and people close to them. The FBI investigation based in part on their undercover work has yielded several rounds of subpoenas — but no charges yet…
…One of the officials in the crosshairs of the FBI, lobbyist Adam Corey, was a longtime Gillum friend and ally until Gillum cut ties with him last year the Tallahassee Democrat has reported.
In 2013, the community redevelopment agency voted to give $1.3 million in taxpayer money to help a Corey-associated restaurant project, the Edison. Gillum voted with the rest of his fellow city commissioners — who sit on the CRA — to fund of project. At the time, Gillum’s vote raised eyebrows because of his close association with Corey. One year later, Corey served as the treasurer of Gillum’s mayoral campaign.
According to the Democrat, Corey became close with Miller, reportedly introducing Gillum to the undercover agent sometime in 2016. One of the reported meetings between Corey, Gillum and Miller at the Edison in May of that year became a point of controversy when the Democrat reported that Corey scheduled the meeting while on vacation with Gillum and another city lobbyist in Costa Rica. Gillum has maintained he did not discuss business in Costa Rica; the trip was merely a vacation with longtime friends, he has said. Gillum also said he paid for his entire portion of the getaway.
