    Interesting Article I just received. Opinions??

    Amazing how the media is so one sided and yet everyone believes what they read.

    cid:ECF60DAAFB5346A0B510C346D136DEC4@AlHP2

    This is Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.
    You’ll probably say (as I did), “Who the hell is Ed Mezvinsky?”

    He is a former US Democrat congressman who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 1973 to 1977.

    He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.

    He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.

    He and the Clintons were close friends and very politically intertwined for many years.

    Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.

    In 1993, the new wife Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky left NBC and became an elected Democrat member in the US Congress. She cast the deciding vote that
    got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.

    In March 2001, Ed Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.

    He embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.

    He was found guilty and sentenced to 7 years in federal prison.

    After serving less than four years, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.

    To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in court ordered (but unpaid) restitution to his victims.

    About now you are saying, “So what?”

    Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky.

    cid:AC78C635749C4E0F972FC9BDA2906B6D@AlHP2
    That’s right; Marc is Ed Mezvinsky's son and Ed is now Chelsea Clinton’s father-in law.

    Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a $10.5 million NYC apartment (after being married in George Soros’ mansion).

    Marc, has just lost 90% of the funds in the hedge fund he manages. It has been alleged that he skimmed off the last $50 mil and shut it down returning around 10 cents on the dollar to investors. Investigations have begun.

    Has anyone heard mention of any of this in any of the media?

    If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in- law - or Donald Trump's family –
    the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be extravagantly reported.

    And yet, many say there are no double standards in political reporting in today's media.

    And there is already talk among the US political elite about the next in the Clinton dynasty - Chelsea - as a future President!

    Chelsea Clinton earned $600,000 a year when working for NBC and now works for the Clinton Foundation and sits on quite a few boards.
    Her annual earnings are now suggested to be at $1.7 m.

    The cycle never ends.

    No....I disagree with my friend Friday13:
    Hatred of the Clintons is a mainstay of the Right and so many of these stories have been pushed so hard and so long by the right that many people believe them as fact.

    Personally I'd rather have an American pol who just steals money or has sexual scandals .....with consenting adults....than Presidents who think they are above the law, abuse their power to go after perceived enemies and commit many crimes.....Like Nixon and Trump.

    Stealing money won't bring down our country but a tyrant president can and is!

    If the story is true then I'm sure someone will cover it. If it's not true I'm sure Fox will cover it. Are you gonna be another one that always shifts the conversation away from Trump to Clinton, Obama etc? As far as an unfair MSM is concerned, Look at all the room that was given by the press while Bush was lying us into war. They screwed up in GOP favor. There are lots of bias news orgs out there and a few honest yet bias ones. If a story is based in fact then that is newsworthy. If not, then Fox or info wars will jump all over it. So we all have to pick and choose wisely and do our own fact checking. Right now the news is all about Trumpism and that's because what is happening under Trump is so unusual and so dangerous that they have to keep us informed. Same was true of Watergate but this makes watergate pale in comparison. This is a case of a country under attack by its own Adm. These are times of treasonous behavior that runs deep and wide within our own whitehouse. All other news does and should take a back seat to that fact.

    Part of it is true, according to Snopes - which of course will render this the one time Snopes isn't pronounced a "left wing rag."

    The cycle never ends.
    So who is this thread about? Nixon, Bill and Hillary, the Mezvinskys, the son or Chelsea?

    You connected a lot of dots.

    The sins of the father...visited upon the son, AND the in-laws? More guilt-by-association bullshit from the people in glass houses (including the White House).
