BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Steve Scalise and 13 RINO Holdouts Derailing Jim Jordan Are Connected to FTX and Voter Mule Donations

Guest post by Erin Clements

CONGRESMAN STEVE SCALISE (R-LA), WHO IS UNDERMINING JIM JORDAN FOR HOUSE SPEAKER, TOOK MONEY FROM SAM BANKMAN-FRIED’S ILLEGAL FTX CAMPAIGN FINANCE OPERATION, AS DID 13 OF THE 22 RINO HOLDOUTS

According to Breitbart, Steve Scalise (R-LA) is the driving force behind the twenty-two RINOs who have prevented Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) from clenching the House Speakership after two rounds of votes.   Trump-endorsed Jordan is the clear choice of grassroots conservatives. A top House GOP aide reported, “[Constituents] are literally melting the phone lines. Some offices’ numbers are permanently busy. Thousands and thousands of people are calling their members of Congress demanding Jordan for Speaker.”

But several sources are claiming Steve Scalise is orchestrating the holdout that is preventing Jordan from clenching the speakership, including Debbie Dooley, a grassroots activist and Louisiana native:

Why would Scalise want to undermine the clear choice of the people and President Trump? Evidence unearthed by grassroots researchers in Scalise’s home state of Louisiana indicates that Scalise is has taken money from the FTX money laundering scandal.

The Former co-CEO of FTX, Ryan Salame, pled guilty early last month to “Conspiracy to Make Unlawful Political Contributions and Defraud the Federal Election Commission and Conspiracy to Operate an Unlicensed Money Transmitting Business.”  Salame admitted that his job at FTX was to illegally funnel money to Republican politicians and political causes, while his co-conspirator, Sam Bankman-Fried, funneled money to Democrats. According to Salame, the donations were to support initiatives supported by Bankman-Fried. Bankman-Fried’s dearest initiative appears to be Joe Biden himself, as he made the second-largest single donation to his 2020 presidential campaign.

Another initiative of Bankman-Fried was Steve Scalise, the man currently preventing Jim Jordan from becoming speaker. Bankman-Fried’s straw donor and co-CEO, Salame, donated $2,900 to Scalise a month before the 2022 Midterms ($2,900 is the maximum donation allowed by an individual):

In fact, thirteen of the twenty-two holdout RINOs also accepted donations from Ryan Salame – almost all of them maximum donations.

The RINOs who accepted these funds include Kay Granger (TX-12th), Mike Simpson (ID-2nd), Carols Gimenez (FL-28th), Jen Higgins (VA-2nd) , Marinette Miller-Meeks (IA-2nd), Mike Lawler (NY-17th), Steve Womack (AR-3rd), Mike Kelly (PA-16th), Mike Simpson (ID-2nd), Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-26th), Linda Chavez-Deremer (OR-5th),  Andrew Garbarino (NY 2nd), Tony Gonzales (TX-23rd), and John Rutherford (FL-5th).

Direct, illegal donations from criminals like Ryan Salame and his co-conspirators are just the tip of the iceberg. It is suspected that FTX, and entities like it, are laundering possibly billions of dollars to politicians and causes all over the country through fraudulent campaign donor mules.

As previously uncovered by The Gateway Pundit and the O’Keefe Media Group, donor mules are people whose identities are being used without their knowledge to launder large amounts of cash into campaign coffers of politicians. These fraudulent donations make it appear that these politicians have significant support from real people, when they are really being funded illegally by special interests. The donations are typically small, but frequent. The small amounts don’t arouse as much suspicion as large donations, but the total amount of cash from single individuals can add up to tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of dollars. Follow-up investigations with the people whose identities are being stolen often reveal that they are average Americans who are really donating only small amounts to one or two candidates, but they are being credited with massive numbers of donations in the Federal Election Commission (FEC) records.

Steve Scalise’s FEC records indicate significant donor mule activity. For example, a retired woman from Marietta, Georgia is credited with donating to Scalise 98 times in a single day with amounts varying from $3 to $22.50:

There are many similar incidents in Scalise’s FEC records. Research continues on how much mule activity appears in the campaign accounts of the twenty-two holdouts preventing Jim Jordan from becoming speaker.

  1. People paying attention have known a long time that Scalise is a sycophant of Paul Ryan. As Ryan conceded spending bills to Obama, he misrepresented them to his own members, to trick them into voting for those bills. Members complained afterward. As Ryan sabotaged the house in 2017-2018, and defied Trump in every way, Scalise was solidly behind him.

    I’m not surprised that Scalise is opposing Jordan, while pretending to support him. Scalise has a long record of deceit.

    • Are you talking about Jen Higgins from the names listed in the article? Or did you see it elsewhere?

      “ The RINOs who accepted these funds include Kay Granger (TX-12th), Mike Simpson (ID-2nd), Carols Gimenez (FL-28th), Jen Higgins (VA-2nd)…”

      Cause this says that RINO is from VA. I’m just curious and really want to know if Clay Higgins is actually part if this too.

  4. Jordan is losing by an ever greater margin because the more people know about him, the less palatable he becomes. The wife-threatening telephone calls were like a squashed, dirty maraschino cherry on top of all of Jordan’s belligerence and incompetence.

  5. McCarthy was and always will be a “Young Gun,” part of the Cantor and Ryan group who joined up w Boehner. Scalise is part of that gang, too, but getting shot either tamed him or bought him time but I don’t trust him either, now I know why. McCarthy, et al prove that you can’t put “lipstick on a pig.”

  6. To the GOP Patriots who voted to remove McCarthy, I would like to say thank you

    Thank you for standing against reckless DC spending

    Thank you for standing against “business as usual”

    Thank you for standing against the Uniparty

    I hope we find a worthy replacement, but whether that’s McCarthy again or someone else, here’s what needs to happen:

    Do NOT agree to a new Speaker until every demand of the GOP voter base is met

    1. Release the J6 tapes in full

    2. Subpoena Hunter Biden

    3. Impeach Joe Biden – no more “inquiries” and delays, just do it

    4. Defund Jack Smith

    5. Impeach Merrick Garland, Mayorkas, and Chris Wray

    6. Defund the FBI’s new HQ

    7. Not 1 more penny for Ukraine

    8. Subpoena Fauci for his role in Gain of Function

    9. Defund 100,000 IRS agents

    10. Fund entire border wall

    11. Vote to “un-impeach” Donald Trump

    12. What else?
