Sex scandals are nothing new in D.C.

But these scandals are not what they appear to be.

And this sick sexual blackmail scandal is about to turn Washington, D.C., upside down.

Tennessee Congressman Tim Burchett told podcast host Benny Johnson that the reason members of Congress – even good conservatives – vote with the swamp to spend money, fund foreign wars, and keep the border open is because the establishment compromises them with videos and pictures of them engaged in sexual acts.

Burchett explained that the swamp sets up “honey pots” – women whose mission it is to seduce members of Congress and sleep with them – knowing representatives are often on the road and lonely as part of a set-up.

“And they protect it and they protect the people that, that do that. And by doing so, you know, the old honey pot — the Russians do that — and I’m sure members of Congress have been caught up. Why in the world would good conservatives vote for crazy stuff like what we’ve been seeing out of Congress? Here’s how it works. You’re visiting, you’re out of the country or out of town or you’re in a motel or at a bar in DC and, whatever you’re into – women, men, whatever — comes up and they’re very attractive and they’re laughing at your jokes. And you’re buying them a drink. Next thing you know, you’re in the motel room with them naked,” Burchett began.

Burchett continued on telling Johnson that the bill came due when the swamp needed that member on a key vote and some shadowy lobbyist would approach them with the video or photographs of their sexual tryst and threaten to release the evidence unless they voted according to the establishment’s desires.

“And next thing you know, you know you’re about to make a key vote. And what happens? Some well-dressed person comes out and whispers in your ear, ‘Hey, man, there’s tapes out on you.’ Or, ‘Were you in a motel room or whatever with whoever?’ And then you’re like, ‘Oh,’ and [they] said, ‘you really ought not be voting for this thing,’” Burchett added.

Burchett said he’s been in politics for 16 years and the same temptations befall elected officials at every level as it’s just human nature.

“You know? And what do they do? It’s human nature. And, you know, no man or no woman actually is an island. And they know what to get at. You know, if it’s women, drugs, booze, it’ll find you. And they say, and in most elected offices, and that’s what people of power and influence do. And it’s just, you know, I’ve been in this game my whole life. I spent 16 years in the state legislature in Tennessee and eight years as county mayor. And now I’m in my fifth year Congress. But it’s just — the stakes are higher. But the game is still the same,” Burchett declared.
