Collins, a four-term congressman, was one of the first House Republicans who endorsed Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016.

Probably has the presidential pardons in his pocket already.

Lock him up!

This kind of person deserves the most severe penalty. He is just one and it is time to take care of the hundreds of other who use congress as a personal business and enrichment office for themselves and their friends.


You are exactly right. Both Repubs and Dems, but not all of either, are on the make and the take. Schumer comes to mind and a major sleaze-ball on the Dems side.

With another retirement announced today along with this criminal, Collins, this makes 20 incumbent House Repubs who won’t be seeking re-election, all from safe seats. This is starting to smell fishy.

Another one bites the dust.

Money corrupts, plain and simple.
