techpresident.com_2014-09-05_12-49-57According to Jason Easly at Politics USA, Ron Paul is currently under investigation by the FBI related to “potential crimes” that were supposedly committed during his failed 2012 presidential run.

OpenSecrets reported,

OpenSecrets Blog has learned that FBI agents have been interviewing a slew of witnesses connected to Ron Paul’s presidential campaign and grand jury subpoenas have been issued for email records from campaign officials. And in addition to payments to a Maryland video company that were routed to Sorenson in exchange for his endorsement, OpenSecrets has identified an additional suspicious payment by Paul’s campaign that may be linked to a $25,000 check to Sorenson from a jewelry store connected to a Paul operative.

Sources say two grand juries are looking into the 2012 campaigns of Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), whom Sorenson originally endorsed, and Paul, to whom Sorenson switched his support just days before the Iowa caucuses. A number of individuals confirmed to OpenSecrets Blog that they had been interviewed by FBI agents, the grand juries, or both.

….

The subpoena lists several possible crimes being investigated including false reporting of campaign finance data by federal campaign committees, false statements to the FEC, obstruction of justice and concealing a federal crime.

Apparently, this same scandal has already taken down Ron Paul’s grandson-in-law, Jesse Benton. There are currently two separate federal grand juries who are investigating both Ron Paul and Michelle Bachmann.

The bribery scandal has already impacted the Kentucky Senate race, and could devastate Rand Paul’s presidential campaign in 2016, depending on how deep this rabbit hole goes. Rand was going to be using the campaign structure that his father had put into place in 2008 and 2012.

I believe that Michelle Bachmann could definitely have some shady stuff going on under the table, but Ron Paul? No way. Dr. Paul is as straight as they come, and is literally the only presidential candidate I’ve ever endorsed, because his liberty message is so powerful and what American citizens ultimately want more than anything else when it comes to choosing our leadership.
