  • New York Republican Rep. Chris Collins, the first member of Congress to back Donald Trump for president, has been arrested and charged with insider trading. Will his reliably red district be up for grabs in November? National political reporter for RealClearPolitics and CBSN political contributor Caitlin Huey-Burns and NPR White House reporter Ayesha Rascoe join CBSN's "Red & Blue" to analyze how Collins' arrest may reflect on the president and how Democrats are reacting.

      tgear77 yes he is but not in that clip. That person isn't him. But I saw a different clip of him at the picnic that is him. They used the wrong clip was my point.

    I have been watching Chris Collins for a long time, I live in Western New York and I have to say that he is an evasive, self-serving, self-absorbed, money grabbing, career politician of the worst kind. His back door dealings are notorious and obvious around here, he hasn’t had a public political debate in over six years, he avoids the press, and he’s a proud member of the millionaires club with a constituency of trusting blue collar workers who aren't paying attention or just don't care, complacency is the best friend of corrupt politicians. I strongly suspect few voters in the 27th district will be voting him back into office come November.
    In fact, not only is re-election a stretch, he may be serving out a prison term with his abetting son Cameron, if convicted. The timing of this is perfect, Trump and so many of his cronies are crashing and burning, and rightfully so. This is a culture of corruption and fraud, the swamp wasn’t drained at all, it was restocked with swindlers and money-hungry exploiters of the worst kind at a time when our nation needs honorable and moral representatives in political offices.
    We are under cyber-attack from forces in Russia who would expedite the undermining of our democracy with an insane and dangerous president facilitating those efforts.
    BLUE WAVE COMING - GET OUT AND VOTE NOVEMBER - TAKE AMERICA BACK AGAIN!

    I may be wrong. However think members of congress have made themselves are exempt from insider trading laws. This is probably politically motivated.

    But yet nothing on the Hilary emails, Obama spying on Trump, Debby Schulz and her foreign tech security breach, Feinstein Chinese spy driver?
    Trump/Putin collusion investigation is just meant to distract while those other walk free.

    The clear message is that if your a politician and you supported Trump watch out the establishment is targeting you for prosecution.

      John Christopher Robert the clear message is that Trump lied when he said he was going to drain the swamp. But then Trump lies about everything.
