Former Rep. Grimm reflects on the mistakes of the past and plot the future
Michael Grimm was a rising star in the Republican party before the scandal and served seven months in a minimum-security prison camp
New York-disgraced former Republican Rep. Michael Grimm said that it was a “no-win” situation for President trump, if the approval of the Congress candidates.
Grimm stands up for his old seat in the state, the PV in this month. He is competing against incumbent Rep. Dan Donovan, R-NY, who is the President endorsed this week.
“Out of respect for the President, the roots, I would not recommend to hire him for in-House primaries, because they upset either the grass or the well-established institution, so that it is said in a no-win situation,” Grimm Fox News, adding that it was “to avoid a warning”-participation.
Trump’s endorsement of Donovan came up with a reminder to the voters of Alabama special Senate election last year — if you took Roy Moore, the Republican nomination, but ultimately, the elections to the Democrat, Doug Jones lost allegations, in the midst of a sexual misconduct.
Grimm, a former two-term Congressman, the FBI agent and attorney, fell from grace in 2014, when he was indicted on 20 cases of tax evasion, hiring undocumented immigrants and perjury. Grimm pleaded guilty to one count of Federal tax fraud for the payment of workers without papers under the table, and spent seven months eight months imprisonment in a minimum-security prison.
“There is no one to better represent the people of New York, and Staten Island (a place I know very well) as @RepDanDonovan who loves strong on borders & Crime, our military and our vets, voted for tax cuts and helping me to America Great Again. Dan has my full endorsement!” Trump tweeted this week.

He added: “this is Very important, @RepDanDonovan will win for the Republicans in November…and his opponent. You Are Thinking Of Alabama. We can’t lose take a Chance, a Nancy Pelosi Democrat controlled!”
Donovan has not cuts, vote with the President on tax.
Grimm voted in favor of honing in on–releasing a new television ad Friday with the title: “Every time, when it mattered, Dan Donovan against President Trump.”
Donovan was said in the New York City policy for decades, that Trump endorsed him at least six times in the course of his political career. He has to explain though, to vote against Trump ‘ s to replace tax overhaul plan, the former President Barack Obama’s signature law, ObamaCare.
“I voice said with a Trump 90 percent of the time,” Donovan. “I agree with my constituency, 100% of the time.”
Grimm ‘ s the Central question for the former Congressman has a criminal record during the entire campaign.
The President this week pardoned conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’souza pleaded guilty in 2014 for the donation of $20,000 to a New York politician, Wendy Long, allegedly over the contribution limit, to give by other donors. He was sentenced to five years probation and eight months in a house on half-way, and paid a $30,000 fine.
D’souza claimed for years that he was unfairly singled out for law enforcement and unfairly treated by the Obama administration.
When asked if Grimm a presidential pardon from Trump, he replied: “of course!”
“I don’t know, who does not, would the said, especially in my circumstances,” Grimm insisted that his harsh condemnation was politically motivated.
The New York primary is scheduled for June 26.
