Excerpt:

The FBI secretly recorded Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan trying to get business for his private law firm from a developer brought to him by Ald. Danny Solis, who was weighing the developer’s request to build a hotel in Chinatown, according to a federal court affidavit obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times.

I guess 43 years of Mike Madigan's corruption and bankrupting the state is finally enough for the Fed's to step in and do what Illinois Voters are too f'n stupid to do.

Ping! I don't know all the Illinois folks as well as I think you do, would you mind helping me out and ping the usual suspects?

I woke up to the news this morning, Chicago Sun Times posted the above article about 2 hours ago.

Didn't see this posted elsewhere, I searched for "Mike Madigan" and saw nothing.

This is a great day for Illinois. I hope the Fed's nail Madigan's ass to the wall.

I know 3 journalists who are going to need to check the underside of their car every day

Back in the day he probably tried to shake down the Trumps, that being a guess, and perhaps Trump has a smidgen of pull in the DOJ or FBI.

Journalists like them are still needed. These are the journalists that America likes. In my state of NJ, you have corrupt politicians like Madigan.

True but I don’t want to ride in a car with them. You can go after the Mob but not the Democrat Mob. They become immune quickly and then the people who exposed them are the enemy of the people.

I’m sure you’re right. Madigan and one of his protege’s are also getting sued in Federal Court for election intimidation. Maybe the sh*t’s about to hit the fan for Madigan? I can only hope being a Conservative living in this hell-hole called Illinois.

Or walk out of a coffee shop with them, or get caught alone in Fort Marcy Park either.

Just sayin'....

When Bob Menendez beat his rap, he told the world “We are above the law”. That is scary. A Republican would be behind bars.

In my jubilation this morning I forgot (somehow ....) that Madigan is a loyal Democrat so this is all for show.

Thanks for crushing my hopes!! (/humor)

This may be more about a cover up than a take down.

Q: Was the affadavit sealed? If so, how did the press get it? If it wasn’t sealed, is that unusual? How did this info get out? And WHY...?

Muck Fadigan. I hope this sticks, and that it takes down others, including his arrogant daughter Lisa.

The investigation was going on in 2014, under the Obama administration.

Interesting dynamics there.

I agree with you. The reason Lisa Madigan was Attorney General here in IL was to protect her father from getting indicted. She’s outta the way now so let’s get on with it!

Too difficult to determine, I just keep it simple. FBI thinks a crime may have been committed. They discover the suspect is a Democrat. FBI finds no intent, case closed! See easy and allows more time for the FBI to work on railroading Republicans.

I can’t help but think that Madigan will be held to account right after Obama and Hillary are held to account. (And Lerner, Brennan, Clapper, et al)

Would any reasonable prosecutor bring charges?
