    I hope Congress gives the FBI the full...unedited versions of those fake tapes.

    Congress is investigating Trump and the FBI is investigating Trump. Is the FBI going to Congress to get their information..or are they working their own investigation?

    It sounds like the FBI is pursuing what we already know - that Planned Parenthood sold fetal tissue for nominal (legitimate) fees to private firms like StemExpress. In turn, these private firms marked up the prices enormously before selling the tissue to research facilities. Charges were never filed against StemExpress, and that may change - and Planned Parenthood's records would be useful in the case.

    It's possible that Planned Parenthood did not exercise sufficient oversight of these firms - but that's a far cry from "investigating them for sale of body parts."

    No one has accused Planned Parenthood of receiving kickbacks.

    No one has accused Planned Parenthood of accepting more than a reasonable processing and transportation fee for fetal tissue.

    This is all covered in the Senate report linked in the OP article.

    Based on the lack of it in political forums, i would say they mostly gonna find GOP brains.

    But if that were the case, it would not be to sell for profit of course, no money to be made.

    the kind of investigations the Congress does in not the same kind the FBI does. What Congress investigates is in no way comparable to what and how the FBI investigates.

    While Congress can investigate issues, it still needs a real law enforcement agency to do the actual official investigating.

    One investigation is not comparable to the other.

    Watergate, Bill Clinton, Trump all required special prosecutors doing the actual investigations.

    I never said they were comparable. YOU said Congress does not investigate.

    So, Planned Unparenthood has nothing to worry about then.

    Who gives a shit if they sold them. In Texas abortion providers can dispose of the remains in a garbage disposal. Is that better? Who gives a shit.

    No, the country has plenty to worry about by defunding them.
