Federal investigation remains ‘Active’ into EB-5

I wonder how many adult diapers were changed at Rounds’ campaign headquarters today, when the FBI decided to tell the press that the investigation is still on going?

A person from ‘another’ campaign I talked to today wondered if the reason Joop is out of the country is because he has been offered immunity from the FEDS?

Doesn’t it seem odd that a program that is still being investigated by the FBI would allow their main (and alive) witness to leave the country?

Maybe he supplied the murder weapon in Benda’s death to the FBI . . . Ah, I mean, the stick Benda used to push the trigger to kill himself.

Sorry. It’s hard to keep track of these conspiracy theories these days.

Keep digging Marion. Keep digging.

maybe the secrets are hidden under Mitch Krebs’ hair hat.

Relax Ehrisman. No one in the Rounds campaign did anything other than an eye roll today at what is very old news. We’ve already been told that the investigation is not focused on Rounds.

Still ongoing? Big whoop. Good for you.

“We’ve already been told that the investigation is not focused on Rounds.”

Interesting. I thought no one could talk about this stuff until after the election? Who from the FBI is leaking this information to the Rounds campaign, or are you just blowing smoke? Seems that is the only thing we know is TRUE from the campaign.

The Feds blowing smoke onto the Rounds campfire a couple of weeks before the election in a critical race that is going to come down to control of the senate?! Nah, couldn’t be any Washington influence on this “active investigation” tip could there?
Speaking of influence, I was surprised to see that Rick owns Parkers? That explains the free “bumpout” the city built for him along with the Main Ave diet! What party does our beloved MMM belong to? Hm…makes you wonder. One hand washes the other in the political sink.

Yup, an anon Minnesota based FBI agent is trying to fuck up the election in SD.

And the Repubs accuse the Dems of being conspiracy theorists.

The Main street diet shouldn’t be an experiment at all, it should be a reality. But the mayor decided to play kid gloves with this, didn’t want his Republican donors to know he was helping out Rick.

BTW, how many times has MMM brought up Rick? I count zero pretty easily.

One hand washes the other in the political sink.

No one knows this better than former South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds and former FEMA Director Rick Weiland.

One of many reasons to cast a vote for Larry Pressler, for our next U.S. Senator.

Wait a minute. You got a Rounds staffer on here saying they were told the investigation isn’t concentrating on Rounds and yet they have had their attack scumbag “Dick Wadhams” putting out press releases calling Brandon Johnson out for not telling the public there is no active investigation!

If you have any doubts about this still being an active investigation involving former South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds, see:

Here is the link to Voter’s comments and two more stories. It would appear that people have discovered there is more to South Dakota then Mt. Rushmore.
