Don’t You Dare Do It!

I was listening to iHartRadio on my Fire TV stick Sunday when Pennsylvania’s Democrat Sen. Bob Casey warned Special Counsel Robert Mueller against issuing a report on his findings in the ongoing investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election near the upcoming 2018 midterm elections. The direness of his warning reminded me of the 1965-1968 sci-fi TV show Lost In Space with the robot that constantly warned Will Robinson of some impending danger.)
Casey told host John Catsimatidis (Cats Roundtable AM 970 in New York 8:30 – 10:00AM) doing so would distract from the mid-term elections and/or cause people to question the election's integrity. 
"I don't think we'll know anywhere near the full story until Mueller issues his report," Casey said. "But once you get into the summer and you get close to the election, I think it's a mistake for him to release it late. I think he should wait until after the election." 

If you go to the 8:20 mark at the link you can hear his remarks for yourself.

Casey is up for re-election this year. Lou Barletta is seeking to unseat Casey who has represented the Keystone State in the Senate since 2007. 
It is a fact the Democrat Party wants to puff up Casey’s resumé for 2020─a kind of Tim Kaine without the dramatic eyebrows.  The folks of Pennsylvania may well remember Bonusgate─the scandal which saw Carl Romanelli illegally stiffed in 2006 by the pro-Casey Democrat machine and then-State Treasurer Bob Casey.
Casey’s campaign “friends” worked the political system to eliminate Romanelli.  If Romanelli were in the race, chances are Casey would not now be a US Senator. Rick Santorum would have another term. What Casey knew or should have known is worthy of debate.
The dirty linen exposed was one of the biggest corruption scandals in state government history. Its intricate web involved the siphoning off of state funds, overseen by Casey’s Treasury Department to pay state government employees for spending their time working for Democratic candidates moving the Democratic Party’s goals further along. One of the major goals was to oust Romanelli from his rightful place on the PA ballot. Through massive corruption, they succeeded. Yet, Casey still stands.
Romanelli theoretically needed “only” 67,070 valid signatures. He exceeded the requirement by almost 50%. Each petition sheet held as many as 50 signatures and as few as one. The campaign against Romanelli and others, dubbed Bonusgate was big and corrupt. Attorney General Tom Corbett led an investigation leading to the arrest of six state representatives and 19 staffers. Somehow, State Treasurer Casey was not implicated. The logical conclusion is that Senator Casey had nothing to do with it. What he knew or should have known is worthy of debate.

The grand jury investigation discovered that from 2004 to 2006, PA House Democratic Caucus employees secretly grabbed $1,641,550 in taxpayer money while working hard to elect Democratic candidates.
