Well, well, well…..
Looks like the NeverTrump Senator who has been bashing President Trump, has some much bigger fish to fry.
He’s under FBI investigation.
Apparently for his “sketchy” finances.
Funny how the media never mentions that, right? Because to the fake news mainstream media, anyone against Trump has to be turned into a “hero.”
The FBI and Securities and Exchange Commission are scrutinizing Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker’s personal finances, including stock transactions involving one of the nation’s top developers of shopping centers and malls, according to multiple sources familiar with the probe.
Corker, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and a potential vice presidential pick, failed to report millions of dollars in assets and income on his annual financial disclosure until The Wall Street Journal revealed the discrepancy last fall. In the wake of that report, Corker was forced to revise years’ worth of disclosure reports.
Corker denies any wrongdoing in how he has conducted his personal finances. Approached in the Capitol on Tuesday, he declined to comment when asked if he had been contacted by federal investigators and said his office would provide a statement on the matter.
A Corker spokeswoman blamed a watchdog group, Campaign for Accountability, for filing a complaint with the SEC last year that led to the current federal probe that has ensnared the Tennessee Republican.
“A politically motivated special interest group that refuses to disclose its donors continues to make baseless charges against Senator Corker, and we know that any effort to examine his actions will result in their smear campaign being discredited,” said Micah Johnson, Corker’s spokeswoman.
Corker has denied having any inside information on CBL & Associates Properties, Inc., a Chattanooga, Tennessee-based real estate investment trust that owns or manages dozens of shopping centers and malls across the country. Corker briefly worked for a CBL subcontractor after college, and he has close ties to senior officials at the company, some of whom have donated to his election campaigns.
The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday night that the federal investigators are looking into possible irregularities in CBL financial statements. CBL said it had not been contacted by any federal agency.
The Journal reported that FBI and SEC officials had found no evidence of wrongdoing by Corker. Officials at those agencies did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
