Corker has been both Trump advocate, and Trump critic "you idiot!"

So which of those two positions constitutes "the swamp".
Thanks from Camelot

You ask a guy with a unilateral brain that question ? You are confusing him.

Corker finances under investigation.

Quote:
In May 2016, the Wall Street Journal reported that the FBI and the SEC were investigating Bob Corker and CBL & Associates, a REIT based in Corker’s hometown of Chattanooga owned by Corker’s former employers turned major donors. According to the report, federal officials were examining CBL’s billing practices and Corker’s dozens of lucrative stock trades over a period of several years, collectively worth tens of millions of dollars. While they have not commented publicly on the case, federal investigators have looked into whether Corker’s trades may have been based on inside information.

Interest in Corker’s personal finances first emerged in late 2015, when the Journal reported on a series of contradictions and apparent omissions in Corker’s personal financial disclosures over the course of nearly a decade. Often, he failed to declare income that he appeared to derive. In other cases, he failed to indicate when he had acquired or sold certain assets. Ultimately, Corker filed amended disclosures with the Senate Ethics Committee, which revealed millions of dollars in previously undeclared assets.

"Corker finances under investigation." Ht #25
Interesting.
Didn't J. Edgar Hoover keep a dossier on individuals he suspected might be potential enemies? MLK for example.

Trump apparently is a vengeful guy.
I'd be curious to know if the investigation of finances predates Corker's unflattering portrayal of Trump.

Why do I have a sneaking suspicion it does not?

Lots of RW Rag poutrage and fake news. A firm Corker had been involved with was investigated. Not quite the scandal all the Dotard Dink lovers want it to be.

Corker is nothing more than an establishment guy playing a role.

Indeed he is and he is playing the whole world just as he's been ordered to do. It's working, just look at almost every thread.

Well, I guess the clue is in the snippet of the article which I posted, where it mentions 2015 and 2016.
