RUSH: If the SDNY is right, how come none of the members of Congress have been charged with felonies by the United States attorney in D.C.? They use tax dollars to buy silence, which was approved by the Ethics Committee. Essentially, there’s a slush fund of tax dollars. They were active members of Congress. The deals were made while they were public officials. Here’s one story:

“The ‘duckie pajamas’ congressman used taxpayer dollars to secretly settle a sexual harassment suit. Representative Blake Farenthold, perhaps best known for his interesting taste in pajamas, settled an $84,000 sexual harassment claim with taxpayer dollars,” this is all in a report by Politico, “after his former communications director, Lauren Greene, sued him for gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and creation of a hostile work environment.” He’s a Republican.

Why hasn’t the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia gone after these guys for impeachable offenses? Why haven’t we started hearing stories about how these people may be indicted?

“According to the Washington Post, Congress’s Office of Compliance has shelled out more than $17 million in 264 settlements related to various employer-related disputes, including sexual harassment.” So, 264 settlements, $17 million, and not one story about how this is indictable, about how it violates campaign contribution law? It’s just outrageous — and, if you doubt me, here, I’ll go through this again if anybody wants to hear it.
