Republican Congressman Rep. Jeff Fortenberry announced in a YouTube video Tuesday morning that he expects to be indicted on a charge of lying to the FBI.
He said investigators “accused me of lying and are charging me with this.” ..
Fortenberry is one of several lawmakers who investigators said received illegal campaign contributions from the Lebanese-Nigerian billionaire Gilbert Chagoury..
..”A number of years ago, some very bad people illegally transferred money into my campaign, along with several other members of Congress,” Fortenberry said..
He should have sold crappy paintings to anonymous foreign billionaires for $500k a pop, and no questions would have been asked by the FBI.
