Never Trumper political consultant Matt Borges was arrested by FBI agents on Tuesday for his alleged involvement in a bribery scheme that federal prosecutors are calling the most corrupt in Ohio’s history. Borges was arrested following an investigation into Ohio House Speaker Larry Householder, whom authorities allege took more than $60 million from a nuclear energy company in return for a planned bailout of two power plants in the state.
Borges is most known for being the chairman of the Ohio Republican Party during the 2016 Presidential Election. He refused to support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, and after President Trump won Ohio and the election, he secured Borges’ removal as OHGOP chairman.
Borges most recently started a pro-Joe Biden Super PAC hoping to swing Republican voters to the Democratic Party. Remarkably, in a recent interview, he pointed to Donald Trump’s supposed ‘self-dealing,’ an ironic accusation from a man arrested for overseeing a corruption bribery scheme in which tens of millions of dollars were sent to the Speaker of the Ohio House in return for political favors. Authorities are alleging Borges played a crucial role in acting as a lobbyist for FirstEnergy, the company in question seeking bailout money in return for bribes.
The longtime John Kasich operative had merited a censure from the Ohio Republican Party for his back-crossing support of Democrats only days ago. Now, the questions about his alleged lack of integrity are only more pressing.

John Podesta “Refused to Concede” In Democratic Election Wargame While Roleplaying as Joe Biden
Prepping for the real thing?
A Democratic election simulation program preparing party elites for possible outcomes of the November presidential election has featured a scenario in which Joe Biden, who was roleplayed by Democratic operative John Podesta, will refuse to concede defeat in the election, according to reporting about the event from the New York Times.
The so-called Transition Integrity Project was created with the idea of preparing Democratic Party elites for four different outcomes of the election. One result of the election simulation wargame involved an electoral college simulation in which President Donald Trump secures a strong electoral vote victory while losing the popular vote to Biden, who was played by the former Clinton operative Podesta.
Podesta refused to concede the presidential election in that scenario, citing what he maintained was voter suppression in Wisconsin and Michigan. Podesta, within the confines of the scenario, convinced the governors of the states to send the votes of pro-Biden electors to the House in an attempt to inaugurate Biden as President, despite losing the states.
In the scenario, the House of Representatives recognized Joe Biden as the legitimate President of the United States, while the executive branch of the federal government and the Senate recognized President Trump as the rightful President.
Perhaps most shockingly, in the roleplay scenario Podesta was impersonating Biden in, the Democrat states of California, Washington, and Oregon openly threatened to secede from the United States in the event that President Trump was sworn in for a second term in office, upping the stakes of the constitutional crisis to the point of a potential Second American Civil War with a beginning similar to the first one.
The roleplay of the event ended when organizers determined the American people would look to the military to resolve the situation.
That the Democratic Party elites would even maintain such a fundamental rejection of an American election as legitimate shows the danger of the extremist neoliberal party.
