    This is as of January 2017, right at the beginning of the Trump administration. You can clearly see the disparity between Republicans and Democrats. The chart on the right is an updated one using a different methodology. Not sure how recent, but everything else I'm going to post here is recent as of September of LAST YEAR.



    If you read the article, it says that in the past it has been easy to count arrests by presidential administrations. But with Trump, it's many of his campaign workers and volunteers. But so far, he has had 212 people indicted, and 24 charged, with investigations still ongoing today. It should also be noted that 26 Russian nationals have been indicted for interfering with the election, as well as three Russian companies.

    In the last 50 years, there have been 4 indictments of FELONIES committed by Democratic Presidential administrations, with two convictions. Republicans have 127 indictments, with 95 convictions. Below is a chart on the average numbers over these last 50 years. These numbers exclude foreign nationals and consist of US citizens only.



    Even if only HALF the indictments in this 'witch hunt' turn out to be true, it will still result in more convictions for the Trump administration than all of the Presidential administrations of the last 50 years combined. And remember, this is not including the indictments and convictions of the last 13 months.

    idk where they're getting their information from and what metrics they're using. I only think of recently George w Bush had jack Abramoff and Tom Delay and Scooter Libby but other people were charged too and not convicted, also it doesn't account for democrats and republicans thst were convicted during years where their party wasn't in power.

    This really doesn't make any convincing case for anything and is just partisan bullshit

    All sources are linked on the page. And the title of it is 'presidential administration convictions." Not "people who once held office that were convicted". This is a study of PRESIDENTIAL ADMINISTRATIONS and not anything else.

    And if you actually read the fucking thing you'd see that it includes charges as well. Republican presidential administrations still have the whopping majority. Of the last 50 years of presidential administrations, only 4 democrats have been charged, with 2 convicted. Republicans have 127 charged, with 95 convicted. 155 charges and 96 convictions if you include foreign nationals. Big difference.

    The Republican party is systematically corrupt. Bring back Obama. 8 years, zero charges, zero convictions, zero scandal. Just near a decade of straight economic progress, prosperity, and progressive social reform that worked to provide equality for America and all it's people.

    With such lop-sided numbers, it's not hard to see the mindless bias and partisan angst of the crazy Democrats.

    These are hard cold facts. If you think it's biased, then go make your own well sourced article based on facts.

    Oh wait you can't

    You're too stupid. And also Canadian so your opinion literally could not matter any less.

    I mean, just look at the numbers of the Republicans against the numbers of the Democrats. Even you lefties would have to agree that both parties are equally corrupt and useless, so why wouldn't the numbers average out about equal across all Presidents? The only reasonable explanation is that the Democrats log a whole lot of phony charges, crying about everything under the Sun to forward their political objectives. That's the Democrats MO. Smear, falsify, omit, fraud, lies and manipulation, whereas the Republicans just sit around do nothing about anything, because they're too busy trying to topple other countries for BigOil and the BigBanks.

    'Phony' charges that get proven in court and become convictions. You mean those?

    Even if we subtract Nixon, Republicans still have vastly more crimes than democrats.
