Collins seeks re-election as bargaining chip for a plea deal in criminal case

Regarding recent letters, Congressman Chris Collins is entitled to a presumption of innocence in his federal criminal prosecution. That said, he is a liar who has lied to the very constituents who sent him to Washington to “Drain the Swamp.”

He previously announced that his son had sold Australian stock at a great loss AFTER bad news was public. Allegations are that the stock sold before the news. This is an easy fact to prove:  the brokerage statements will show the sale before or after the news. Release of these facts will show if Collins is a liar.

The Trump Justice Department is prosecuting this case with a Trump appointed U. S. Attorney; the rascally Democrats cannot be blamed. The decision for Collins to run is driven by his “Dream-Team” criminal attorneys (he lied about cooperating with Republicans to get off the ballot) so he will have a “bargaining chip” in plea negotiations.

Collins has the best legal defense money can buy. If you support him, maybe the yard signs should say: “Vote for the Millionaire Liar, he needs the Plea Bargain.”
