Calif. congressman charged with funds misuse suggests wife to blame

Calif. congressman charged with funds misuse suggests wife to blame”

"She was also the campaign manager, so whatever she did, that'll be looked at too, I'm sure", Hunter said during an appearance on Fox News.

Rep. Duncan Hunter speaks exclusively with "The Story with Martha MacCallum" after being accused of using campaign funds for personal expenses.

"My campaign did make mistakes", Hunter told the network.

Campa-Najjar said he was hopeful of breaking the Hunter family's almost 40-year hold on the district that runs largely east of coastal San Diego, abutting Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base and stretches toward a remote area near the U.S. -Mexico border.

California Congressman Duncan Hunter gave his first interview since he and his wife were charged with campaign fund abuse, calling the charges against him "pure politics" and also appeared to shift blame on his wife, saying she handled their finances.

Trump says WH lawyer McGahn isn't 'a John Dean type 'RAT
News outlets reported that Trump and his lawyers do not know the full scope of what McGahn told Mueller's team of investigators. Trump has used the "enemy of the people" tag repeatedly, attacks decried by the media for potentially encouraging violence.

"My prosecutor and the acting USA attorney that issued the court orders to search my house, my office, had just attended a Hillary Clinton fundraiser with another US attorney out here in San Diego", he said.

Hunter's father, Duncan Hunter Sr., told KUSI News in San Diego:"This is going to be a long, tough battle".

In a statement, House Speaker Paul Ryan called the charges "deeply serious" and said Hunter will be removed from his committee assignments, pending resolution of the case.

The California Secretary of State's Office said there is no process in the elections code for Hunter to remove his name from the ballot, and there can be no write-in candidates for the November election.

There is no doubt a win would be an upset even with the allegations against Hunter and his wife.

He was not talking about financial investment, though West Ham had illustrated that spending is not the cure to all ills. Liverpool's front three last year was arguably one of the best in the world last year.

But in their headline about him, Fox News chose to lead with a much more inflammatory point: that he is the grandson of a Black September terrorist who helped plot the 1972 Munich Olympic attack.

He also spent $238 in December 2013 while watching a San Diego Chargers game at a Washington-area restaurant with another unnamed congressman, the indictment alleges. "They want to rig the election their own way because they can't beat me in a real election", he said. "They overdrew their bank account more than 1,100 times in a 7-year period resulting in approximately $37,761 in "overdraft" and "insufficient funds" bank fees". "I didn't use campaign money, especially for Wounded Warriors, there's no way".

Mike Patterson, 61, of Del Mar, said Thursday morning that he was pleased to see the charges against the Hunter, 41, and his wife, Margaret, 43.

"I wonder what else they will get on him", Wilmot said outside a coffee shop near the town's business strip, where pickup trucks rolled by feed stores, diners and gun shops.

'My opponents have to go back three generations to attack me.
