Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) appears poised to plead guilty to federal campaign finance charges on Tuesday morning after more than a year of claiming the federal investigation into his spending habits was a “witch hunt.”

The congressman told San Diego station KUSI on Monday that he would plead guilty to avoid exposing his three children to a public trial, which would likely dwell on his extramarital relationships and involve his wife testifying against him.

The court docket in Hunter’s case also indicated on Monday that Hunter has a change of plea hearing set for Tuesday morning, as first reported by The San Diego Union-Tribune. He’ll appear before U.S. District Judge Thomas Whelan, according to the notification.

Hunter was indicted in August 2018. Months later, he won reelection after launching false, racist attacks against his opponent, who was of Palestinian and Latino descent.

Hunter’s wife previously pleaded guilty in the campaign finance scheme, admitting that the couple used campaign funds for a wide variety of family expenses, including flying their pet rabbit around. Hunter also used campaign money to fund extramarital affairs, according to federal prosecutors.

“Not a single dime of taxpayer money is involved in this. The plea that I accepted is misuse of my own campaign funds, of which I pled guilty to only one count,” Hunter told KUSI. “Whatever my time in custody is, I will take that hit. My only hope is that the judge does not sentence my wife to jail. I think my kids need a mom in the home.”

Hunter also said that he hopes his Southern California congressional seat will remain in Republican hands. “President Trump right now needs support more than ever,” he said.

The congressman was one of Donald Trump’s earliest supporters, and Trump lashed out at then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for allowing Hunter and another Trump-supporting lawmaker, former Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.), to be indicted. Collins pleaded guilty to insider trading in October.

Hunter’s trial had been set to take place early next year.

Why is it you keep calling the president an idiot, but when people call you an idiot they get their accounts suspended? You refer to people that voted for Trump as idiots, but you seem untouchable, why is that? Your crude and nasty to anyone who disagrees with you, yet you get a free pass.

Maybe he owns the forum or is related to the owner. Lol Its a curious thing especially since he’s hands down the most profane poster. He’s insulted people numerous times but always gets a pass.

Reflects poorly on him and those who give him a pass. Its their forum though and they can do what they want.

Wow, brilliant. Perfect slander. I was suspended and told if I ever used another identity I was gone. I have received numerous warnings and had topics deleted. Please tell me who these accounts were or if they were suspended for the usual trolls and abuse I take and usually take it stride, never striking back.

That I am crude and nasty "to anyone who disagrees with" me is a bare-faced lie; I go out of my way not to do so.

But I am being foolish addressing lies. Believe what you want.

That's a valid point,Louis.
I love this site. I've become friends with several of It's posters. There are those here who would divide us,and the Nation,if they could. I propose ignoring them...they only get satisfaction if you respond to their mouth-farts
Let them throw their excrement at each other,and not infect civil discourse.
2020 is going to be a hell of a ride, politically.
I love a healthy,informed debate. I learn from that. These scabs only detract from what OPP could,and should, be. My plan ; Ignore them.

Well, as I told them they aren't the only game in town. No, not Fascist book or twitter, I can think of four others. So who has the power?
