After Years Of Calling Investigation A ‘Witch Hunt’, GOP Rep Will Plead Guilty In Corruption Case

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), who constantly insisted that a corruption investigation against him was a “witch hunt,” will change his “not guilty” plea in a federal courtroom on Tuesday morning, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Hunter’s attorney told Bloomberg News on Monday that his client plans to plead guilty after an announcement for a change of plea hearing was posted on the U.S. District Court docket earlier in the day.

Prosecutors have alleged that Hunter illegally misused campaign contributions to fund personal expenses, including carrying out “a series of intimate relationships” with women who were all involved in politics, including three registered lobbyists and one of his own staff members.

According to prosecutors, Hunter and his wife, Margaret Hunter, misused hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations and tried to cover it up by falsifying campaign records.

Hunter tried to push the narrative that he was a victim of a witch hunt. But after the investigation grew more precarious in recent months and his wife changing her plea to “guilty,” it was only a matter of time before Hunter admitted to his wrongdoings.
