The DNC is Corrupt. Hmm, Let’s Take a Look

If anyone is really paying attention to GOP Senators, the President and the White House Propaganda Machine, one would believe the Democrats are the most corrupt group of people operating in American politics.

In the words of Warner Wolf, “Let’s go to the video tape.”  I’ve provided research footnotes at the bottom of the page so you can check for yourself.

Democratic presidencies dating back to 1970 have resulted in exactly one criminal conviction from investigations into the administration. Republican presidencies have had a total of 91.

It is worth taking a second to let that sink in: three Democratic presidents. Six Republican presidents. Ninety-one convictions to one.[1]

If you want to just look at the criminal indictments, outside of actual convictions, it doesn’t get any better: GOP Presidencies had 124 criminal indictments. Democrats had 3. This information is displayed on a table published by PBS.

That would mean since 1970 Democrats have fewer total indictments than Donald Trump does since taking office.

Ok, so what.  Let’s talk about actual prison sentences.  Under GOP 14.  Under the Democrats ONE!!!!!!

What does this say about you?  Having been a lifelong, die hard Republican only to discover Republican presidential administrations have 121 criminal indictments and 89 convictions, while Democrats have had 3 and 1 (note the discrepancy from above and further note this citation is for a different set of years)[2], I’ve taken a very hard look at who I will now support.  To do otherwise is not only hypocritical but would suggest I am uninformed, unable to think critically, uneducated, and simply, well, stupid.

Well, let’s narrow it down a little bit if you just want to focus on actual administration officials / people working directly for the President.  Republicans 89, Democrats 1. And that’s not even counting all the high-level Iran-Contra folks who probably would have been convicted of various felonies if they hadn’t been pardoned by GHW Bush.[3]

On May 5th, 2018, Rantt published an article listing 28 reasons why wealthy Americans should vote Democrat.  Reason 27 was a comparison of corruption between the Republicans and the Democrats.  Analyzing 56 years of political corruption from 1961 to 2016 (note the Trump administration isn’t even being included).  That works out to 5 GOP Presidents and 5 Democratic Presidents.  The GOP gets crushed with eighteen times more individuals and entities indicted, thirty-eight times more convictions, and thirty-nine times more individuals who had prison time.[4]

Now, let’s look at the Trump Administration on its own as investigated and prosecuted BY REPUBLICAN APPOINTEES.  39 indictments, 9 convictions, 2 serving actual prison terms.

Wow.  And who, Misters GOP Propaganda kiss asses, are the corrupt ones??
