Republicans Are All Going to Jail

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.

Jeez, I go out to lunch, and when I get back everyone in the Republican Party is going to jail. Paul Manafort is going to jail. Michael Cohen is going to jail. Rep. Duncan Hunter might be going to jail. And of course, we already know that Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos and Rick Gates are going to jail. Rep. Chris Collins might be going to jail too. Eric Greitens might be going to jail. I suppose Reps. Pat Meehan and Blake Farenthold probably aren’t going to jail, but they both had to resign from Congress after getting caught in some minor peccadilloes.

Any way you add it up, that’s a lot of corruption. You’d almost think it was a trend or something.

I guess Donald Trump is holding a rally in West Virginia right about now. That should be a helluva barn burner, don’t you think? Maybe I’ll go watch.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
