Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 22, 2021

The FBI has opened an investigation into a Colorado GOP election official who's accused of helping facilitate a leak of highly sensitive election data. Unfortunately for the FBI, the official at the center of the probe, Mesa County clerk Tina Peters, is "holed up" in a safe house provided by pillow salesman and conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell.

Peters has been accused of allowing someone who was not an employee of the county to access a secure room where voting machines are stored and permitting them to copy sensitive information from those machines. ...

Peters is also accused of ordering staff to turn off surveillance cameras in the room prior to bringing the outsider in.

Right. They're "looking" for fraud.

At this point they're planning how to commit fraud. These "audits" are recon missions.

This isn't gonna end well...

I see them setting a date for him to surrender by and then charging the election official with a crime.

Once that charge is filed that also implicated Lindell for harbouring a fugitive.

But he probably won't get in any real trouble because he's rich and white and has connections to the former guy.

And pursuing any wrong-doing by the previous administration is some how wrong-doing itself because Garland's b*lls are made of ----.

This isn't gonna end well for justice enthusiasts - but I sure hope Lindell et al can endure that light tap on the wrist from that flimsy ruler...

The FBI finds criminals all the time, I suspect they will also find this one. Meanwhile, where are the GQPukes demanding that she turn herself in? There are many people involved in these federal crimes and they all need to face justice.

So is Mike Lindell going to be charged for this blatantly obvious federal crime or is it going to be another Matt Gaetz situation where it goes on forever and he's still free to irritate the ---- out of the world for months?

Well, Rep Gaetz did get married this weekend.

So there's that...
