Feds close to filing charges against Rep. Michael Grimm, officials say

(CNN) - Federal prosecutors are preparing criminal charges against Rep. Michael Grimm, capping a two-year FBI investigation that ranges from his business dealings to his first campaign for Congress in 2010, U.S. officials briefed on the matter said.

In recent months, public attention has focused on the 44-year-old House member's campaign donations after a friend and donor was charged with funneling illegal contributions to Grimm's campaign four years ago.

    What is it with baggers and breaking the law. Grimm should get the new Cliven Bundy Lawbreaker award. He will get million in donations for breaking the law.

    Cliven Bundy is a registered republican, so that pretty much explains his being a dead beat welfare cheating law breaker.

    Hey Rudy,
    Go look up REPRESENTATIVE John Murtha's comments about John McCain and get back to me. While you're at it, do a little research on how much McCain's age was the topic of discussion on all news outlets. More "facts" from you, eh Rudy?

    @tom l... Being from PA, I know a little something about how the Republicans smeared John Murtha before his death. What a way to treat a veteran?! You know, those types McCain has turned his back on... Classy you and your Republican lot.

    Bye Bye goofball. I am going to send him a nice fruitbasket. Isn't this the clown that threatened to punch a reporter when he asked a question recently about Grimm's problems?

    Charges should have been filed against this man, months ago. Just because he believes he's someone special, make no difference. No difference at all.

    The comment from his lawyer make is sound like he is a victim. He is a tough guy – he should admit it and resign.

    Happy Good News Friday!
