Well, what do we have here? Little Ms. Perfect Susan Collins, who’s always critical of President Trump, is now embroiled in an FBI investigation, complete with search warrants?
Say it isn’t so…
Well, it is so – and it’s actually a really big deal – Sussan and her campaign could be in some really serious trouble if even some of these allegations are true and they can be linked to them.
Firstly, all of this mess came to the public light thanks to a recently unsealed search warrant application surroundig the Collins re-election campaign.
And as it stands now, Collins and her team are in the thick of some mighty dirty deeds.
The FBI believes a Hawaii defense contractor illegally funneled $150,000 to a pro-Collins super PAC and reimbursed donations to Collins’ campaign.
But it’s even worse than just that.
According to a report from Axios, the “massive scheme” to illegally finance Sen. Susan Collins’ 2020 re-election bid also involves government contracts worth $8 million dollars to the donor who funneled the cash.
Sounds like a “pay to play” scheme, doesn’t it?
The Axios piece explains that a recently unsealed search warrant application shows the FBI believes a Hawaii defense contractor illegally funneled $150,000 to a pro-Collins super PAC and reimbursed donations to Collins’ campaign. As of right now in the investigation, there is no indication that Collins or her team were aware of any of it.
But how could they not be, especially when you read this next part:
Collins helped the contractor at issue, then called Navatek and since renamed the Martin Defense Group, secure an $8 million Navy contract before most of the donations took place.
Former Navatek CEO Martin Kao was indicted last year for allegedly bilking the federal government of millions in coronavirus relief loans.
Of course, and not surprising at all, The Collins for Senator Campaign says they had absolutely no knowledge of anything alleged in the warrant,” Collins spokesperson Annie Clark told Axios in an emailed statement.
Uh-huh, sure bet.
Federal prosecutors say Kao used a shell company to funnel $150,000 in Navatek funds to a pro-Collins super PAC called 1820 PAC.
Gee, why was this Hawaiian rich businessman so incredibly interested in a dull establishment RINO senator out of Maine?
$8 Million dollar contracts will get people interested, I suppose – and that has Susan’s name all over it.
According to the FBI, Kao and his wife set up a sham LLC called the Society for Young Women Scientists and Engineers. Navatek then wrote the LLC a $150,000 check, investigators say, which was passed on to the super PAC.
Looks like this investigation is just heating up, and while we expect Collins people to claim “stupidity” and “ignorance” on the issue, we’ll see how this shakes down as more is found out…but as it stands now on the surface, things don’t look very good for the RINO senator from Maine, especially since she reportedly helped the “bad guy” secure an $8 million dollar government contract.
Maybe instead of always criticizing Trump, Susan should have been giving herself “morality pep talks?”
