This didn’t get much coverage bc of the crush of other news, but a jury has convicted JESSE BENTON, on six campaign finance-related charges. Benton, a former adviser to Rand Paul and GOP political consultant was pardoned by Trump for other crimes just before he left office.

He was found guilty on six counts of funneling Russian money into the 2016 Trump campaign. Kinda a big deal

Roy Douglas ‘Doug’ Wead, a Bush insider", died after suffering a stroke and heart failure. Wead had told his Russian friend that in exchange for the payment he could meet Trump. twitter.com/Loveon999/stat…

What was the timeframe of this crime, that TFG couldn’t include this in the pardon present? Did Jesse not know that a pardon for specific crimes is not a get out of jail card for a lifetime if other crimes are committed? Are Stone, Bannon, D’Souza, Meadows concerned too?

Why do you think they are talking about Hunter? Will media ask any member of GOP about this, perhaps Rand?
So Russia was a hoax, Trump said. Add that to the stack of lies that foment and spew out of his mouth. #TrumpTreason

“pardoned by Trump for other crimes”

I said when trump pardoned all of these ppl they would end up being charged to other crimes. pic.twitter.com/67R8b0w6hE

Success! We now have some empirical evidence of the half-life of a pardon. Less than two years. pic.twitter.com/U7U5tOl6kt

Note to self: Don't do more crimes than your pardon can cover. 🤣

Oh, look. A republican crook! Must be Thursday... 🙄
Why does the @GOP need to commit crimes with Russian Terrorist Oligarchs to try to win an election? Here’s the kicker, Trumpublicans still LOST
In reply to @kyledcheney
So, the pardon doesn't cover this, correct?
In reply to @kyledcheney
Yes, this is big news and should be covered extensively.
In reply to @kyledcheney
And does Mr Benton have some information to exchange for a lesser sentence?
I'm just shocked. America still has campaign finance laws? Come on SCOTUS, you've thrown out so many laws wealthy donors wanted thrown, just finish the job!
In reply to @kyledcheney
Benton was charged but what exactly is the punishment? He is certainly not the first OR the last to take Russian funded money.
In reply to @kyledcheney
Low hanging fruit on R - Russian links. KY is so Kremlinly.
#RandPaul & convicted cronies That’s the Republican #GOPcrimewave
Well he won’t be pardoned for this! #LockHimUp

A very serious crime. Facilitating Russian $ & influence into Trumps campaign…as @SethAbramson says,” Follow the money”
