Back in the late '60s, early '70s Dean Martin hosted celebrity roasts. One of the guest roasters was Red Buttons, whose act was to point out other members of the roast and state, "Never got a dinner." So, here are members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who never got an FBI investigation (and never asked for one).
Sen. Feinstein - Had a Chinese spy in her San Francisco office who served as her driver as well as a liaison to the Asian-American community in California.
Sen. Durbin - In 2014, an investigation by the Chicago Tribune found that his wife lobbied on behalf of clients who then received federal funding he promoted. His office announced the grants but claimed he did "nothing in terms of securing the money."
Sen. Gillibrand - In 2015, she received a gift worth nearly a half-million dollars from her husband's British parents.
Sen. Blumenthal - Stated that he served in Vietnam despite the fact that he sought multiple deferments and then signed up for the Marine Reserve to avoid going to war. To quote the Senator, "False on one thing, false on all."
Sen. Booker - He said that you groped one of your friends. "After having my hand pushed away once, I reached my mark," he wrote. Sexual assault?
Sen. Whitehouse - According to Politico, as lawmakers closed in on a deal over a bill called the 21st Century Cures Act, he bought shares in pharmaceutical companies. He was actually sitting on a Senate committee overseeing health care at the time. The day President Obama signed the bill, he started selling your pharmaceutical stock.
I think all of these senators should demand an FBI investigation into the allegations lodged against them. Oh wait, they are judge, jury and executioner and should not be questioned on their ethics.
