This was my thought too. In Congress for 28 years and 10 million is all she has to show?

If she’s one of the most notoriously corrupt congresspeople, she’s also got to be one of the least competent.

Yeah, and the funny thing is, EVEN I suspect her of being corrupt. It's just that this particular piece of information isn't the smoking gun.

Well keep in mind that the 10 million is the number she reports publicly. It's entirely possible that a hypothetical person is able to show on paper that they legitimately earned $10 million, but they have a storage locker filled with a pallet of cash they haven't been able to launder yet. Think of Walter White's car makes $2 million a year and it's the most profitable car wash in the world, but he's still bringing in $2 million a month and just can't launder it all.

But I totally agree just pointing at money isn't incriminating. It is a good place to start asking questions though.

Yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if she has a storage unit filled with unlaundered money. But, my point is, this isn't a storage unit with unlaundered money. If someone want to be taken seriously, they can't point at funds that are indistinguishable from honestly earned cash. They need to find the meth lab in Maxine Water's basement.

Q is definitely on the "These People Are Stupid" side.
