Two Democrat 2020 contenders just got hit with some bad news

Democrats are already jockeying for position for the 2020 nomination to take on President Trump.

But they are making one mistake after another.

And two of the top contenders just got slapped with some very bad news.

Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) were named two of the “worst offenders” of ethics violators in 2018.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) called them out by name.

Both Warren and Harris launched fundraising campaigns during the brutal hearings over Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

FACT stated:

The non-partisan ethics watchdog group, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT), filed a complaint today with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics against Senators Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Kamala Harris (D-CA) for improperly soliciting campaign donations, a violation of Senate Ethics rules.

“FACT is calling for an immediate investigation into Senators Warren and Harris for tying official congressional action to campaign fundraising,” said Kendra Arnold, Executive Director, Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT). “This is a clear violation of the Senate Ethics rules which safeguard against the appearance or actuality of elected officials ‘cashing in’ on their official position for political purposes,” Arnold added.

According to FACT’s complaint, Senators Warren and Harris both sent campaign fundraising emails before the Senate vote on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Specifically, the campaign emails both stated Senators Warren and Harris’s official role and positions on the ongoing confirmation hearing and then made direct requests for campaign donations with “DONATE NOW” and “CONTRIBUTE” buttons. Senate ethics laws prohibit candidates from using the promise of official action or legislative work in a direct ask for campaign cash.

FACT points to the following section of Senate Ethics rules:

Senate Ethics Rules prohibit Senators from solicitating campaign contributions based upon any action taken in their official capacity. By linking a promise of official action with campaign contributions, a Senator violates a “basic principle” of Senate Ethics that guards against conflicts of interest. The Senate Ethics Manual is clear that a Senator “should never use the prestige or influence of a position in the Senate for personal gain. This provision was intended ‘as a broad prohibition against members, officers or employees deriving financial benefit, directly or indirectly, from the use of their official position.’” Moreover, Senators are to act based upon merit, not on partisan affiliation or for campaign contributions.

Many political pundits believe Elizabeth Warren torched her own campaign by boasting about being 1/1,024 Native American.

Kamala Harris is a favorite of many Democrats because she checks all the identity politics boxes.

But Harris, as we recently reported, could be in danger of losing her valuable seat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.

She tried to use her position to springboard her campaign, but it’s coming back to bite her.

    FACT: they both represent deep blue states whose voters will not be bothered one whit by this.
    FACT: voters as a whole have very short memories.
    FACT: no matter what party is in charge, Congress has shown repeatedly that they will wuss out rather than
    take action against their own.

      Harris is not elegeble to run for President of these UNITED STATES, she is not a Natural Born Citizen, her parents we not citizens of this country at the time of her birth. Obama and the entire Democrat Party paid no attention to our Constitution and ran him anyway, He was illegal and every thing he did and the money he made should be confiscated and he and those who vouched for him should be in Prison for the rest of their lives. We must DEMAND that they follow the CONSTITUTION, or our freedoms will be taken from us by their illegal actions! We have not fully overturned Obama’s illegal actions! This country will not servive another Obama, I would hope this country will not put up with this from the DEMOCRAT PARTY again. PEOPLE ……they do not have our security and the security of and servival of this country as their best interest! The American People mean nothing to them unless you are willing to support them, and the One World Order that they and SOROS are working towards. That mean having No freedom that many have given their lives and limbs for in WARS for this country!! WE NEED TO SPEAK UP AND NOT ALLOW THIS TO EVER HAPPEN AGAIN!!!!

  2. CrookedHillary says:

    I would expect this from Harris but not a veteran like Sitting Bull With Foot In Mouth Warren….Kamala Harris short career has already yielded unethical standards.

  3. Jason Casteel says:

    Most of the comments I have read here make valid points. Except yours, Betty, you’re an idiot.

    Nine of this will matter one way or another unless the right starts winning some elections. As a Democrat, ( who thinks these whackjobs have lost their minds), I will tell you, they will vote to change laws to suit their needs. They will roll right over the Constitution in favor of their agenda.

    We must have voter ID cards. Otherwise, ILLEGAL ALIENS will continue to fraudulently vote in our elections. The Dems have already passed laws in states to make this easier.

    So people, pull your heads out of your butts and start voting for who you think will better serve the American People, not whose party you belong to. It was hard for me, but after doing personal research, I could not, in good conscience, vote for my party any longer.

  4. John P. Catalano Sr. says:

    Before I wrote this,I read the previous comments, unbelievable what people think and put it in type. The liberal elite are unfortunately protected by the 1st Amendment. We the people have got to use our power to vote these folks out of office. If there was one piece of a needed ballot referendum, it would be to limit congress to 2 terms, just like our President. Put age limits on all judges.
    This one man, George Soros his so called foundation is just as bad as the clintons pay-to-play, nothing is being done to expose it. The Trump Foundation is being picked apart by everyone, but the other two are left alone, I often wonder why? America is the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!!!!

  5. Chuck says:

    In this day and age, campaign bugaboos aren’t that big a deal to the average low IQ, American imbecile voter. What really matters for these 2 is voters aren’t gonna elect an old bitchy Fakeahontas or another half baked ni**er to the WH!

  6. Floyd says:

    The democraps make the NAZI party look great. THEY KILLED OVER 15,000,000 people. But the demoCRAPs have killed over 61.000,000 BABIES.

    • Rose says:

      Floyd, You are totally right! They have murdered over 60 million innocent little babies by telling women that they have sexual control of their bodies…………they do, right up until their actions affect an innocent human being. The way they rip these little babies to pieces and at times take their little body parts and sell them for the Almighty dollar is unforgivable! What is wrong with people who will do these things? They will pay, if not on this earth, in the here after, whether they are believers or not!

  7. Jon M. Willey says:

    Ethics credibility and morality are not in the lexicons of any Democrat politicians and that is especially true of the potential 2020 presidential Democrat candidates.

  8. Are we never going to realize that the eligibiity for POTUSA is to be a “natural born citizen”? It was defined in Supreme Court case Minor vs Happersett. It defines a “natural born citizen” as on born of two American parents “jus parentis” and born on the soil “jus solis” Therefore those THREE things are necessary. Obama was a British citizen due to his father being a British subject (British Nationality Act of 1949)
    Kamala Harris parents were NOT American citizens at the time of her birth in California. They were both foreign students.
    The Founders made this qualification ONLY for POTUSA, because he/she is the Commander-in-Chief.

    • bruno says:

      Good so that idiot Harris cannot even run for President as she does not qualify. Thats good. She is a stupid, ignorant ass who thinks she can buffalo her way thru senate procedures. What a complete moron she is.

      • Wendy Mantooth says:

        You forgot the fact that Harris is also a stone cold b*tch…….as is Lieawatha!

      • Betty says:

        IDIOT! STUPID IGNORANT ASS! COMPLETE MORON! WHAT A PERFECT TRIO OF PHRASES DESCBRIBING D. TRUMP, THAT LYING LUNATIC! THAT OVAL OFFICE INSANE BIT OF GUTTER TRASH!

        • Jim Vaughn says:

          Anti American are we. We finally get a President who isn’t their to stuff his own pockets and the left doesn’t like him. Will vote for him again and probably his daughter after that.

        • Leon says:

          Betty…..You really are screwed up, you have to be talking about at least two other people, namely, Barack Obummer, Billiary (lying) Clinton, Chuck Schumer or Nancy Pelosi. Those are the biggest lying lunatics that I have ever seen in public office in my many, many years on earth.

        • Chares says:

          Betty , showing your insanity !

          • The Real M says:

            Chares, Betty is a PAID TROLL, she writes these stupid insulting comments to get people to reply to her and she gets paid for it! Some wealthy liberal pays trolls to insult us! They are dirtbags!

    • August says:

      Are you sure Donald Trump’s mother had citizenship when he was born?🤔
      By your brilliant reasoning you have illegal president in the White House!😱😖

    • Rose says:

      You are right DR, and they did that so that our President would have no allegiance to an other Nation….. just The UNITED STATES, Obama put us 9 trillion more in debt. Part of the reason why was because he spread our tax dollars around to Muslim countries and propping up ISIS to fight against our military. He sure had other Fish to fry didn’t he? We must take this to the Supreme Court to define it as the Constitution states . We either have to demand they follow the Constitution or we will loose our exceptional country and our Freedom! The Democrat party are Communist and they are trying to destroy us and our Constitution, we can not allow that to happen EVER AGAIN!

    You mean Matt Whitaker’s old firm. FACT is in FACT just a RW self interest group. Just look at the folks running it. Oh it has also been “Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) (formerly the Free Market American Educational Foundation, Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust and Working for Rights to Express & Communication)[1]”. And “The Center for Responsive Politics’ Open Secrets project reported in 2016 that all the group’s funding in 2014—the year it was organized—came from DonorsTrust, a creation designed to allow right-wing donors to stay hidden as the source of donations:

    In other words, an organization “dedicated to promoting accountability, ethics, and transparency” gets 100 percent of its funds from a group that exists mainly as a vehicle for donors to elude transparency.”

    Kendra Arnold is the Executive Director and was previously the General Counsel from 2014 onward.[39][7][40]

    FACT’s treasurer was Neil Corkery from 2015 to 2016 whose wife established the Judicial Crisis Network.[41][9] Neil Corkery is now treasurer for Public Interest Legal Foundation. Corkey was part of the three person board of directors at FACT including Whitaker.[42][43]

    William (Bill) Gustoff serves on the board of directors of FACT was a former law partner of Matthew Whitaker for Whitaker Hagenow & Gustoff LLP (which changed its name later to Hagenow & Gustoff LLP).[44] Kendra Arnold previously worked for Hagenow & Gustoff LLP in 2012.[45]

    Matthew Whitaker was executive director for 3 years from October 2014 to September 2017 was paid $717,000 from 2014 to 2016 by FACT.[46]

    James Crumley has been a director.[47][36] Noah Wall was a director in 2014.[36]

    Thomas Raymond Conlon has managed the tax returns of FACT, he is also responsible for other prominent groups such as American Conservative Union, Judicial Crisis Network which are all organisations associated with Ann and Neil Corkery.[48]

  10. PLEASE STOP pretending Kamala Harris qualifies for the presidency. First off she does not past the FIRST REQUIREMENT,…she is not a ‘NATURAL BORN CITIZEN’ when Senator Harris was born her parent were not legal citizen and they did not become citizens for several years after she was born…her mother divorced her father and took Kamala to Canada where she remained until college age when she returned to California to attend college…SECOND…she is the biggest slut in the Senate and she screwed her way to the top of California government sleeping with San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, 32 years her senior…she destroyed his marriage…and she continue to sleep her way to the Attorney General office…she is also a corrupt attorney who should have lost her license to practice she she was accused of “prosecutorial misconduct” but don’t take my word for it, here is what the New York Times wrote about her in 2015…The NYTimes referred to Harris as a “top cop” AG who, according to her critics, “failed to take on prosecutorial misconduct.” The profile noted in 2015 her office was called out for “defending convictions obtained by local prosecutors who inserted false confessions into the transcripts of police interrogations, lied under oath, and withheld crucial evidence from the defense.” IS THIS THE WOMAN YOU WANT IN THE PRESIDENCY when she has already shown us in the Kavanaugh hearing she does not support Law & Order and she certainly did not believe the judge deserved DUE PROCESS nor did she display a true American belief in “Innocent until proven Guilty”…

    • Rose says:

      Thank you for that information, William. How do we get this information to the Attorney General of the UNITED STATES , to investigate and put a stop to this crooked Democrat””

    The democrats Schumer, Pelosi have cut their throats because we the people know how they don’t give a damn about our safety! They even had the gall to think they are the winners over the wall, but they will be brought to an open shame because we will cause more people to walk away from these nazis! Trump has exposed them for what they are! And we will get the wall funding come hell and high water!

    • Sam says:

      You said a mouth full my friend . No democrat I have heard talking is representing me . I want the wall , security , immigration laws and those laws enforced per the word of the law . Democrats want totally the opposite and I , m not voting for any one of them . This party really hates the American citizens and are proud of it . I ,m really sick of the double standards I see in the way laws are ignored because of party and the FBI does nothing .

    “Walla, Walla”, Kamala Harris and Pocahontas Warren two really bad girls.

  16. reality check says:

    That is really HILARIOUS that the president with the worst ethics and criminal violations in the history of the nation would beat either of these women :Trump’s campaign, transition, inaugural committee and presidency are now under active criminal investigation. His business — the Trump Organization — and his defunct charity — The Trump Foundation are also under investigation (the charity investigation is a civil one). His college — Trump University — has already been deemed a fraud. The President himself has been indirectly fingered by New York prosecutors overseen by his own Justice Department of directing criminal attempts to subvert campaign finance laws. AND, Dec. 18, 2018 – NY Att. General Underwood cited “a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation !

      crawl back under your rock!

    • Bill Bob says:

      I know you’re talking about bill clintoon> He’s pure garbage!!

      • Ric B says:

        Clinton is an amateur compared to the “master con man” T-R-U-M-P!!! Trump has run several scams, most notable Trump u, but also clearly laundered massive amounts of foreign criminal money through his real estate deals. He is like the “Elmer Gantry” of politics, as unfaithful as Clinton, and criminal in his business dealings. He is the Michael Jordan of crime!

    • Patricia says:

      Oh but you would support Hillarys filthy foundation?! What a joke! God will expose your little democrat buddies for what they are! And stop listening to the media hacks because these things have already been debunked just like that stupid russia thing!

    • ChuckB says:

      Time for a REAL reality check there “reality check”. The biggest criminal in American history was replaced by President Trump. And liberal idiots still can’t accept that Hillary lost, in spite of having the election rigged in her direction. Go back under your rock until the next liberal is elected. Altho that might take a long time.

    • James Peelor Jr says:

      Of course they are under investigation. Everything he does, has done or will do will be investigated. The left has been fooled to believe Pres Trump is the enemy. The left is so full of misdirected hate. Just wait till they realize how badly they have bee dooped.

    • Rose says:

      reality check, any one who was behind running Crooked Hillary has no right to accuse anyone else. She and the entire Democrat Party should be hawled off to GITMO, tried and the hanged for TREASON!

  17. Mark says:

    Kamala Harris is a total dumbass. Her questions of witnesses are painfully stupid. “Do you still run horrific experiments on helpless animals?” “Do you still kick your son in the mouth with steel toed boots?”. “These are simple yes or no questions”. Hey Kamala, are you still the only living brain transplant donor?

  18. Mike says:

    I hope the American public can see what kind of idiots these three are. In stead of having someone who could run the country correctly they’re worried about what race they are. Explain why a black person or a woman is going to be better than anybody else?. Or is this just a liberal way of going now because it’s different. We had a black president already. And he’s going to go down as the worst president in history .How did that work out.

    • Mary Ann says:

      With them it’s never abut what good they will accomplish for we the people. All they have is their gender and/or their race. Hardly a reason to elect someone to be president. They lack substance and they lack an agenda. It’s a known fact how Harris attained her position and it wasn’t MeToo but consensual. As for Warren, she lied about her heritage for years to advance herself.

  19. The Real M says:

    Kamala Harris, Wow, with ethics violations in 2018 plus may lose her seat on ethics committee, that makes her the “darling” of the left. She has that going, plus she is a woman, plus she is brown, plus she is from everyone’s favorite state-CA and last but not least, she is a mean angry liberal! She should be a shoo in to be their chosen one for 2020 run Against DJT!
    Poor Elizabeth Warren, since she found out she has less Native American heritage than “most” Americans she has had a run of luck, all bad! She and K. Harris should have known better than to raise campaign funds or make money off the Justice Kavanaugh “persecution” but, got themselves in ethics trouble in their party.
    Carry on ladies, it is probably just going to get worse!

    • Cath says:

      Maybe this is the media’s way of opening the “door” for Bernie Sanders – whom they really want but he may be even too leftist for them – BUT they will do ANYTHING to take the office away from Mr. Trump. THAT’S all their concentration is focused upon right now…

  20. James P Hutchins says:

    waters needs to be on the list as well all three of these women are crooks and traitors to American people and the United States of America. Lock them up.
