Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information


It’s been about two years (give or take) since Crooked Hillary and Slick Willie evidence began to be exposed to the public. A lack of smoking gun dot connections, a coverup-minded Obama Administration and a colluding Mainstream Media (MSM) have protected the Clintons for quite some time.

 

So, I wait with baited breath in hope this Sara Carter article will prove true that a hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee are deserving recipients of criminal Justice.

Clinton Whistleblowers: Thursday’s Public Hearing to Reveal “Explosive” Information

Crooked Hillary

 

A trove of documents on the Clinton Foundation alleging possible pay for play and tax evasion have been turned over to the FBI and IRS by several investigative whistleblowers, who will be testifying in an open hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Thursday, according to the committee and lawmakers.

 

Roughly 6,000 documents that are expected to reveal the nearly two-year investigation by the whistleblowers with a private firm called MDA Analytics LLC, which allegedly turned over the documents more than a year and a half ago to the IRS, according to John Solomon, who first published the report last week in The Hill

 

The whistleblowers are former federal criminal investigators, who allege that the Clinton Foundation was “engaged in illegal activities and may be liable for millions of dollars in delinquent taxes and penalties,” according to Solomon.

 

The Department of Justice and the FBI’s Little Rock, Ark. field office, which is believed to be investigating the foundation, have allegedly obtained the documentation from the whistleblowers as well, according to lawmakers who’ve spoken with the whistleblowers.

 

Clinton Foundation officials could not be immediately reached for comment.

 

However, a former whistleblower, who has spoken with agents from the Little Rock FBI field office last year and worked for years as an undercover informant collecting information on Russia’s nuclear energy industry for the bureau, noted his enormous frustration with the DOJ and FBI. He describes as a two-tiered justice system that failed to actively investigate the information he provided years ago on the Clinton Foundation and Russia’s dangerous meddling with the U.S. nuclear industry and energy industry during the Obama administration.

 

William D. Campbell’s story was first published by this reporter in 2017. He turned over more than 5,000 documents and detailed daily briefs to the bureau when he served as a confidential informant reporting on Russia’s nuclear giant Rosatom. Campbell worked as an energy consultant, gaining the trust of Russians and providing significant insight into Russia’s strategic plans to gain global dominance in the uranium industry. He reported on Russian’s intentions to build a closer relationship with Obama administration officials, to include then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as reported. The documents he turned over to the DOJ, which were reviewed by this news site, showed Campbell had also provided highly sensitive information both related to the uranium case, as well as other intelligence matters, since 2006.

 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was the director of the FBI at the time Campbell was a confidential informant and according to Campbell, the information was briefed to Mueller by his FBI handlers.

 

Rep. Mark Meadows

 

“(Mueller) received the documents, copies of which I still have, over a period of years and ignored a national security threat to the United States because of his political preference,” said Campbell, who said he is frustrated that the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the other information he provided was apparently ignored years ago.

 

“These men were in charge of transport of nuclear materials (inside the United States) while committing criminal activity here in the United States and signing major US utility contracts,” said Campbell, referring to the information he provided the FBI on the American company Transportation Logistics International, also known as TLI, was the primary transport company for Russian enriched uranium sold to the United States.

 

“One teacup of what they were transporting both domestically and abroad could close down Wall Street or Washington,” Campbell warned. “(Mueller) ignored and delayed their arrests over years while I was risking my life undercover and interacting with these (Vladimir) Putin appointees both here in the United States and overseas.”

 

But Rep. Mark Meadows, chairman of the Freedom Caucus and member of the committee, said this time it will be different. He noted that the investigation is apparently ongoing with the FBI and DOJ and believes the information being delivered for Thursday’s hearing to be ‘explosive’ in nature and may help connect the dots.

 

Meadow’s told Fox New’s Martha MaCallum Tuesday, “the American people, they want to bring some closure, not just a few sound bites, here or there, so we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this.”

 

Meadows, who’s also on President Donald Trump’s short-list to replace Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, noted that some “allegations (whistleblowers) make are quite explosive.”

 

“We just look at the contributions. Now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year,” he said. “But if you look at it, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as secretary of state. It dipped down when she was no longer there.”

 

“And then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there are all kinds of allegations of pay-to-play and that kind of thing,” Meadows added.

Dan Bongino on the FBI raid on Whistleblower


John R. Houk

© December 6, 2018

I ran into a social media post linking to the audio of a Dan Bongino podcast. I usually give credit to such discoveries, but I can only remember it was on a G+ Community.

 

Bongino takes about an hour to discuss the ramifications of the FBI raid on Whistleblower Dennis Cain in Chicago. The surprise is Cain was supposed to be a cooperating Whistleblower protected by Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act (ICWPA).

 

So, why would the FBI get a search warrant and raid a person supposedly under the protection of the ICWPA? Bongino theorizes three possibilities:

 

  • The initial theory the raid is good.

 

  • Bongino’s theory (which I think is plausible) the raid might be to prevent incriminating evidence against the FBI.

 

  • OR a combination of 1 & 2.

 

Below is the nearly long Youtube version of the Bongino podcast followed by the Epoch Times pierce referred to Bongino, then a Daily Caller update on the FBI raid on Cain’s home posted on 12/5.

News Analysis

 

If anyone tells you they are tired of nothing happening with regard to ongoing investigations, perhaps they should take a closer look at a number of events that came to light over the past few days.

 

In a matter that caused no small amount of worry and consternation among supporters of President Donald Trump, The Daily Caller reported on Nov. 29 that the FBI had raided the home of whistleblower Dennis Nathan Cain.

 

The raid, which took place on Nov. 19, involved 16 FBI agents who had obtained a court order signed on Nov. 15 by federal magistrate Stephanie A. Gallagher in the U.S. District Court for Baltimore, according to The Daily Caller. No reason for the 10-day delay between the raid and his lawyer’s public announcement was given.

 

Cain, whose name is new to the public, isn’t just any whistleblower. He retains a top-level security clearance and maintains a number of security-related credentials, according to his resume, which has since been deleted online. Specialties include the FISA Amendment Act (FAA) Section 702 and USSID SP0018 Minimization Procedures and Signals Intelligence Authorities.

 

According to the article, Cain “privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney.”

 

“The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One,” the article states.

Cain also had obtained official whistleblower status from DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Michael Socarras, Cain’s lawyer, told The Daily Caller that Cain had met with a “senior member of Horowitz’s office” and delivered a flash drive along with a sealed envelope containing documents. The same materials reportedly were also delivered to the Senate and House Intelligence committees.

 

The FBI agents seized all of the original documents in Cain’s possession, according to Socarras. The Daily Caller said that one document they reviewed showed that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller “failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One.” How The Daily Caller was able to review any documents, following what was reported to be a full seizure, remains unexplained.

 

There have been strong reactions to the news, with many perceiving it as some sort of coverup. However, a few facts are worth entertaining. Regardless of the FBI’s seizure, both IG Horowitz and the House and Senate intelligence committees already have the documents in their possession. The FBI’s seizure of documents from Cain doesn’t indicate the documents are being hidden.

 

As noted in the article, the FBI agents obtained a court order which means their identities are known. FBI Director Chris Wray, if he doesn’t already know, could easily determine the agents’ identities—this wasn’t a clandestine operation.

Another possible issue might have to do with Cain himself. Very little is known about him other than that he’s a whistleblower, which generally conveys images of positive actions taken by a well-intentioned individual. However, we know nothing of Cain’s true motivations or the actions that lay behind them. It may turn out that an invasive raid by the FBI was fully warranted.

 

Another explanation may lie within the documents themselves. The FBI’s actions may be related to chain-of-custody issues. The FBI may have been required to ensure that all evidence was accumulated and taken into their custody. It’s possible this document seizure by the FBI may indicate a case against the Clintons and/or their Foundation is actively underway.

 

The Chicago Raid

 

The FBI raid on Cain’s house wasn’t the only one.

 

On Nov. 29, federal agents raided the offices of Alderman Edward Burke, a powerful Chicago politician who has held his position in Chicago politics for 50 years. Burke’s office windows were covered and FBI agents remained on the premises for about seven hours, according to media reports.

 

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who abruptly announced in September that he would not seek re-election, said his office had no advance warning of the raid, noting: “I know what I read in the paper. I’m out here. That’s it. … You are asking hypotheticals and I am not going to do that with the FBI walking around his office.”

 

Burke, who has been under federal scrutiny on several occasions, has never been convicted or indicted. His investigation is being handled by the public corruption squad from the local FBI office.

 

Burke’s law firm specializes in property-tax reductions for his clients, and some have speculated that the raid could be connected to work that Burke’s law firm did for the president, but there are several problems with that theory.

The Burke investigation, according to the Chicago Tribune, “was being conducted in conjunction with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago, not Mueller’s office.” Additionally, the Sun-Times reported, “the raids were in response to new allegations, and not prompted by any past controversies that have swirled around Burke.”

 

Dan Mihalopoulos, a reporter for WBEZ in Chicago, was somewhat more direct: “Worth also noting today: Burke’s huge role in the local Democratic judge-making process. One judge just told me, ‘Everyone’s crapping themselves here.’”

 

The investigation probably has more to do with corrupt Chicago politics than anything related to the president.

 

Money-Laundering Probes

 

Two other events with a more international scope also have been underway.

 

Several banks are currently under investigation for a massive money-laundering scandal that is likely to only grow larger.

 

Danske Bank is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice, and new charges were filed this week by Danish authorities. The bank’s CEO and chairman both have been forced to resign and numerous current employees are under investigation. Danske Bank has admitted that approximately $230 billion has flowed through one of its units in Estonia, but the focus now appears to be shifting to other financial institutions:

 

“Howard Wilkinson, a former Danske Bank A/S manager who blew the whistle on its multibillion-dollar laundromat, told lawmakers in Brussels that when it comes to shell companies, or limited liability partnerships, the U.K. is ‘worst of all.’ He said he was legally prevented from naming the other banks involved, but urged lawmakers to treat the Danske scandal as a case that goes well beyond its core in Estonia,” Bloomberg reported Nov. 21.

Also on Nov. 29, Deutsche Bank’s headquarters was also raided by German officials. Transactions being examined by investigators relate to the bank’s wealth-management division, which previously has come under scrutiny.

 

According to a spokeswoman for prosecutors, the investigation covers the five-year period from 2013 to 2018 and is related to disclosures made in the Panama Papers—11.5 million leaked documents from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, then the world’s fourth-biggest provider of offshore services.

 

The Deutsche Bank raids continued for a second day and reportedly included the executive management board’s floor. Deutsche was one of Danske’s correspondent banks, as are JPMorgan Chase and Bank of America. Any potential involvement of other banks will bear close watching.

 

Clinton Donor Charged

 

Lastly, in a Nov. 29 DOJ press release, three executives including Abul Huda Farouki were charged “for their roles in a scheme to defraud U.S. military contracts in Afghanistan, engaging in illegal commerce in Iran, and laundering money internationally.” Farouki was the CEO of Anham, a defense contractor based in the United Arab Emirates

 

This wasn’t the first time Farouki or his company have been involved in allegations of misconduct. In a 2013 article by The Daily Caller, headlined “Clinton Donors Get a Pass on Shady Contracting,” Farouki and his company were highlighted:

 

“In June 2011, the Defense Department’s Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) released a scathing report on a defense contracting company called Anham. The title of the report and its conclusion were the same: ‘Poor Government Oversight of Anham and Its Subcontracting Procedures Allowed Questionable Costs to Go Undetected.’”

 

The article then asked a simple question: Given prior violations, how was Anham able to secure an $8 billion contract in Afghanistan that “allowed it to illegally ship supplies through two Iranian border crossings and a seaport controlled by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard?”

 

The $8 billion contract, along with the illegal shipment of supplies, being cited in the 2013 article appear to be exactly the same violations being alleged in the 2018 DOJ indictment. So why weren’t Farouki and his company charged with these same, known violations back in 2013?

 

The answer may lie within Farouki’s many connections to the Democratic Party. The Daily Caller notes that Farouki is a longtime donor to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), and donated to Obama for America in 2008. But Farouki’s closest ties lie with the Clintons and their Foundation.

 

Farouki, a member of the now-shuttered Clinton Global Initiative, participated in annual CGI meetings since the group’s formation in 2005 through at least 2010 and made multiple donations to the Clinton Foundation. Farouki also made donations to Terry McAuliffe and has been photographed with Huma Abedin.

 

There appears to be a common thread among what might appear to be unrelated events: the raid on the whistleblower, the raid on the Chicago politician, the investigations of European banks, and the charges brought against a Clinton donor. All the activities targeted were either occurring during the Obama era or, in the case of the DOJ whistleblower, were directly related to underlying events from that time.

 

There may be more going on than meets the casual eye.

WHISTLEBLOWER ADVOCATES, ATTORNEYS CONDEMN FBI RAID ON CLINTON FOUNDATION WHISTLEBLOWER

 

By Richard Pollock

4:48 PM 12/05/2018

The Daily Caller

 

  • Whistleblower activists condemned the FBI’s raid of a recognized whistleblower, Dennis Cain.

 

  • Cain had previously shared documents with Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

 

  • The documents contained potential wrongdoing regarding the Clinton Foundation, the Uranium One deal and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to Cain’s lawyer.

 

Whistleblower advocates across the political spectrum condemned an FBI raid on the home of a recognized whistleblower who reported potential wrongdoing surrounding the Clinton Foundation, the Uranium One deal and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

 

The Daily Caller News Foundation, in a bombshell report, detailed how 16 FBI agents raided the home of Dennis Cain, a former employee of an FBI contractor, on Nov. 19. They rummaged through his home for six hours even though he told them that Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz awarded him whistleblower status, according to Cain’s lawyer, Michael Socarras.

 

Horowitz instructed a top aide to personally hand-carry the documents to the House and Senate intelligence committees over the summer after he received them from Cain, Socarras said. (EXCLUSIVE: FBI Raids Home Of Whistleblower On Clinton Foundation, Lawyer Says)

 

Everyone TheDCNF interviewed said the raid should never have occurred. They said it appeared Cain followed the rules in accordance to the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act, which protects federal whistleblowers from retaliation.

 

“I really do question the need for this raid at all,” said Nick Schwellenbach, the investigations director for the Project on Government Oversight, a nonpartisan watchdog group that frequently works with whistleblowers. “On its face it doesn’t seem like it was necessary.”

 

“This isn’t how we should be treating whistleblowers who are coming forward with information about high level wrongdoing,” he told TheDCNF. “It sends a very strong message that you will be treated as a criminal even though what you’re trying to do is expose crime or a potential crime.”

Craig Holman, a lobbyist for Public Citizen, the liberal advocacy group founded by Ralph Nader, told TheDCNF: “Well it certainly sounds like an absolute violation of the spirit of what the whistleblower law is supposed to be all about.”

 

The documents Cain possessed, which he gave to the special agent leading the search, show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity pertaining to Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, according to a document TheDCNF reviewed.

 

The court order and all the documents justifying the raid are sealed and are not available for public viewing. Federal magistrate Stephanie A. Gallagher of the U.S. District Court of Maryland in Baltimore issued the court order on Nov. 15.

 

TheDCNF asked the court on Friday to unseal the documents. Gallagher has not yet responded.

 

A conservative attorney on ethics law, Cleta Mitchell, questioned whether the FBI was truthful when it sought the court order.

 

“If they did not fully advise the court of his whistleblower status, then I would find that to be extremely troublesome,” she said. “The main question is whether or not they properly informed the court that this individual is a whistleblower and that he had gone through the procedures to receive whistleblower status.”

 

“Until Mr. Cain’s attorney is able to see what the FBI or the U.S. Attorney presented to the court in order to obtain this search warrant, then we have no way of knowing and he has no way of knowing whether they fully and properly advised the court that he had whistleblower status, and whether they informed the judge that he had gone through all of the proper procedures,” Mitchell continued.

 

Schwellenbach said the judge should release the original documents filed by the FBI and the U.S. Attorney.

 

“I would love to see what’s in their subpoena request to the judge,” he told TheDCNF. “What facts do they present to the judge? I think that is a document that should see the light of the day.”

 

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley asked FBI Director Christopher Wray in a Nov. 30 letter whether the bureau was “aware at the time of the raid that Mr. Cain had made what appeared to be lawful disclosures to the Inspector General?”

Texas defense attorney Stuart Baggish told TheDCNF that the search of Cain’s home could be a violation of the Fourth Amendment, which protects against unreasonable search and seizures. Baggish is challenging a recent raid on his client’s business after local law enforcement allegedly omitted key facts before a judge when justifying the search.

 

Baggish is challenging a recent raid on his client’s business by local law enforcement for omitting key facts before a judge when justifying a raid on his client’s business.

 

“If the search warrant for Mr. Cain’s property was based on an affidavit that purposely or recklessly omitted his whistleblower status, like my client’s case against the Smith County Sheriff [in Texas], the search could be ruled unreasonable and hence a Fourth Amendment violation,” he said.

 

“Material information may occasionally inadvertently be left out of a search warrant affidavit, but it is rare and dangerous when it is done purposely or recklessly,” Baggish continued.

 

Schwellenbach, the POGO investigator, told TheDCNF: “I think the FBI needs to be thoughtful how it uses these powers. Judges need to be skeptical of FBI claims.”

 

“They shouldn’t be raiding people’s homes unless there’s a real compelling reason to do so and alternative means have been exhaustive,” he continued.

 

Baggish warned that such raids also undermine the judiciary and violate civil rights.

 

“When law enforcement officers intentionally mislead a court to obtain a search warrant, they are entering a realm of malfeasance that harms not just the individual or entity whose property is raided, destroyed and confiscated, they also harm the judiciary itself by depriving it of its efficacy as the guardian of Americans’ civil rights,” he said.

America’s Most Dangerous Days


Justin writes about the FBI raid at the home of Dennis Cain. He muses correctly:

 

… one must wonder if this raid was conducted by FBI agents loyal to the Constitution, our Republic and the President, with President Trump’s knowledge, in order to finally bring Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Cheryl Miller, Huma Abedin, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, James Comey and a litany of other traitorous anti-American Red Rat Commie Democrats to Justice; and at the same time, many wonder if this could move the acting U.S. Attorney General to place criminal charges against Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein.

 

Or, is this one more group of rogue agents, Hillary supporters, similar to Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who seek to destroy yet undiscovered information contained in these documents, that is injurious to Clinton and many others?

 

Many of the news stories that actually covered the raid implied the FBI acquired documents that implicates the Clintons, Robert Mueller and a host of Deep State anti-Trumpers involved in the shady Russian/Uranium One deal.

 

BUT lately I have become convinced the FBI rank-n-file are not necessarily on the up and up as many Conservative pundits have suggested. ERGO, one indeed has to wonder about an FBI raid of a whistleblower who for all intents and purposes brought to Clinton Foundation nefariousness, right?

America’s Most Dangerous Days

A Constitutional Crisis In The Making

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 12/3/18 6:25 PM

 

America is witnessing some of the most dangerous days to Her Republic, that I have ever witnessed in my lifetime, as rogue elements of the U.S. government, who are intent on facilitating Obama’s fundamental transformation of America and turning Her into a bastion of communist tyranny, have unleashed a festering wave of illegality by way of their efforts to turn America into just one more bastion of globalist communists and tyranny. This has led Us into an epic battle for control of power and the U.S. government, which will either be won by the anti-American Deep State agents or American patriots and President Trump’s loyalists.

 

An FBI raid on Dennis Cain’s home, in Union Bridge, Maryland on November 19th (reported by The Daily Caller), is one more move in this war for the future of America, and it could well start the unraveling of the intricate web of lies weaved over the past eight years by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Cain is a Department of Justice whistleblower, who gave information to a government watchdog on the Clinton Foundation’s involvement with the Uranium One Deal, and documents in his possession show criminal activity by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and then FBI Director Robert Mueller’s failure to enforce criminal laws in regard to Russian State Nuclear Energy Corporation (ROSATOM) and other Russian government agencies involved in Uranium One.

 

This is interesting on multiple levels, and one must wonder if this raid was conducted by FBI agents loyal to the Constitution, our Republic and the President, with President Trump’s knowledge, in order to finally bring Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Cheryl Miller, Huma Abedin, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, James Comey and a litany of other traitorous anti-American Red Rat Commie Democrats to Justice; and at the same time, many wonder if this could move the acting U.S. Attorney General to place criminal charges against Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein.

 

Or, is this one more group of rogue agents, Hillary supporters, similar to Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, who seek to destroy yet undiscovered information contained in these documents, that is injurious to Clinton and many others?

 

Well known and widely reported, as the trench fighters of the FBI were assiduously investigating these Clinton and Russian cooperative schemes to obtain U.S. uranium through other corrupt public officials, Robert Mueller handed his longtime legal crony, Rod Rosenstein, the Uranium One case to be buried and forgotten, clearing the way for the ROSATOM Deal that handed Russia twenty percent of America’s uranium industry and a path to controlling interests.

 

Now America bears witness to a severely flawed and corrupt Special Counsel Mueller. Rather than politely decline the position due to numerous conflicts of interest, Mueller took the position to investigate the “progressive” Communist Democratic Party’s claim of collusion between Russia and President Trump, without even blinking and to the cheers of key figures implicated in the Department of Justice, National Security and FBI corruption in service to ulterior partisan agendas, through the Clinton crime family — all of whom had close personal and professional connections to Mueller.

 

Mueller is not a “special prosecutor”. He is a political hack put in place to prevent the truth from being revealed and to ruin President Trump in the process. It’s just as Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) noted in June, as he said, “[Mueller is] covering for himself at the same time he’s trying to have a coup against the president.” This entire ignoble and despicable Democrat machination has been manufactured to prevent Americans from understanding how truly depraved, duplicitous and traitorous Barack Hussein Obama’s regime really was.

 

In bizarre fashion that reads like a John Le Carré novel, the fine, good and decent constitutional-minded Americans were alarmed to see Hillary Clinton protected from clear felonious violations of the Espionage Act. The Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, lied for her and leaked those lies to the media; CIA Director John Brennan started the false dossier and the false investigation on President Trump and FBI Director James Comey refused to charge and arrest her. Even the United Kingdom’s top security agency used U.S National Security Agency information to target President Trump and protect Hillary. It should chill every American to the bone to know these people were willing to risk criminal prosecution in order to get Hillary elected.

 

This is an evil and desperate gambit facilitated by the Democratic Party to bring down a sitting U.S. President. In the process, they have ruined the lives of many people, such as General Flynn and George Papadopoulos, and now they are targeting the highly esteemed and nationally renowned scholar and investigative journalist, Jerome Corsi, when it is the Democratic Party operatives, such as Mueller — a fake “republican”, who need the media and legal ACME anvil dropped on them.

 

The Obama White House was involved in the entire sorry episode, attempting to cloak itself in plausible deniability, which may be unraveling now. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

 

Who is going to review the chain of decisions among FISA judges who approved of warrants made in bad faith to spy on U.S. citizens?

 

Potent weapons against his adversaries, President Trump may wait to declassify numerous secret files, memoranda and communications he’s been holding for months, until Mueller releases a final report. And then the chaos of a constitutional crisis will follow, as Good goes to war with Evil for adjudication of the misdeeds of several agency heads and top officials. The Department of Justice may split into warring camps, one charging the other, and surely America will soon see the acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker seek indictments against Bruce Ohr, Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe, John Brennan, James Clapper and others, and Hillary herself should be in real jeopardy.

 

“Now that Russia collusion is a lie, when do the trials for treason begin?”, tweeted President Trump on November 29th. Many Americans would like to find out, too.

 

If not treason, there are a litany of other charges that can be levied against these traitors to America, and at the very least, they too should be exposed, arrested and ruined. Remember these are the allies of Antifa, Black Lives Matter and people, such as Eric Holder, urging the masses to assault conservatives and Trump supporters, organize violent riots and destroy entire neighborhoods.

 

America’s constitutional patriots, conservatives and most Christians yearn for the return of the rule of law and the righteous ideas of freedom and equality under the law, as We watch this legal charade and mockery of the Constitution orchestrated by Mueller and his Democrat cronies, in shock and disbelief, play out in each evening’s newscast. We want someone in the Department of Justice to stand up and end this Deep State coup; and, if Justice cannot untangle and properly resolve this mess, America may witness a Constitutional crisis, for the first time in almost nineteen years, that requires President Trump to declare a state of emergency, possibly martial law, in order to eradicate the seditious elements and traitors to America, from the halls of the U.S. government.

Cohen Lies vs. Dem Crimes with NO Accountability


John R. Houk

© November 30, 2018

 

The big news on Thursday is President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen has pled guilty – WAIT FOR IT – to lying. What prosecutorial team snagged Cohen? Special Persecutor Robert Mueller and his team of Crooked Hillary supporting Prosecutors.

 

VIDEO: Hannity: Mueller investigation desperate for dirt on Trump

 

Fox News

Published on Nov 29, 2018

 

I don’t watch, listen or read Mainstream Media News so I can only imagine how Cohen’s guilty plea propagandized their sheeple the plea will lead to imminent impeachment of President Trump.

 

You should really view the more reasoned reporting on the Cohen Guilty plea that suggests Mueller’s indictments and guilty pleas have NOTHING TO DO with an alleged Trump/Russia collusion. It’s been two-years so you may have forgotten Mueller’s Special Counsel appointment was to investigate Trump for colluding with Russia to manipulate the 2016 Election to Trump’s favor.

 

If you did forget Mueller’s mandate be careful to whom you speak. You might get caught in a perjury trap by making statement dissimilar to anything you said two years ago.

 

NOW if Robert Mueller was actually serious about a candidate who paid for information to sway the 2016 election that involve a Russian source, he should LOOK to the Crooked Hillary campaign paying for the debunked Steele Dossier which was used by the Obama Administration to spy on the Trump campaign. Oh, I forgot the key point. Christopher Steele claimed his Dossier was sourced by – GASP! – the Russians.

 

Specifically what is Cohen pleading guilty to? Could it be facilitating Russian spying on Crooked Hillary? Nope. Again the Russia/Election 2016/American campaign axis is closer akin to Crooked Hillary’s agenda. Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump project to build a skyscraper in Moscow. A project, incidentally, Trump the table as his campaign for President began to pick up steam.

 

…  Cohen admitted he lied to Congress about key details in the negotiations for the Moscow tower, most notably that those talks stretched much deeper into the presidential campaign than previously thought, to June of 2016.

 

Trump, speaking to reporters Thursday, disputed Cohen’s timeline and suggested his former fixer was telling prosecutors what they wanted to hear to save his own skin. As for why the most recent deal failed, Trump said he made the decision because he was focused on on [sic] running for president.”

 

 

But according to Cohen’s new statement to prosecutors, the tower deal remained viable as late as June 2016, after Trump had vanquished his Republican presidential rivals and was mounting his general election campaign against Hillary Clinton.  Cohen said he kept Trump, named as “Individual 1” in the plea, updated about the deal’s progress, and also “briefed family members of Individual 1 within the company about the project.” (Attorney’s plea caused by Trump’s dream of a Moscow tower; By STEPHEN BRAUN and BERNARD CONDON; Washington Times; 11/30/18)

 

In May 2016 Trump acquired the amount of delegates needed to win the GOP nomination and the GOP Convention made Trump’s nomination official in July 2016. The Dems and Leftist MSM are telling you that since Trump was still working the Moscow Trump Tower deal in June 2016, he must have been working with the Russians to win the election in November. THE ONLY THING CONFIRMING THAT ANTI-TRUMP THOUGHT IS LEFTIST WISHFUL THINKING!

 

The timing of securing the GOP nomination by late July led Trump to abandon the Trump Moscow Tower dream. That is a much closer correlation than a failed real estate deal in June 2016.

 

The irony about the Steele Dossier is the initial intelligence poop was initiated by Never-Trump Republicans. As it became evident Trump would win the nomination, the Never-Trump Republican funded terminated.

 

THEN the DNC began the funding in April 2016 which then tapped Christopher Steele in which the most egregious AND debunked accusations against Trump emerged as the infamous Steele Dossier. The DNC and the Clinton campaign expect gullible Americans to believe they knew/see nothing (shades of Sgt. Shultz) about where the info came from that they PAID FOR.

 

 

The Clinton campaign and the DNC are believed to have taken over the project in April 2016, once Trump became the nominee, and oversaw the compilation and completion of the dossier from there.

 

 

Who put it together?

 

The document was produced by Fusion GPS, a Washington strategic intelligence firm cofounded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson in 2012.

 

In 2016, the firm hired Steele to dig into any connections between Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, and the Russian government.

 

 

But it has attracted particular scrutiny for its work for a U.S. law firm that defended Prevezon Holdings, which until May was locked in a legal battle with the U.S. government over allegations the company’s executives fraudulently obtained a $230 million tax refund from the Russian treasury.

 

Also working the case defending Prevezon was Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 before which Donald Trump Jr. was offered damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Veselnitskaya is known for her work lobbying against the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 U.S. law aimed at punishing human rights abusers in Russia.

 

READ ENTIRETY (Clinton, Trump and the Russia dossier: What you need to know; BY JONATHAN EASLEY, KATIE BO WILLIAMS AND MORGAN CHALFANT; The Hill; 10/28/17 12:31 PM EDT)

 

Mueller’s perjury trap faulty memory trick is hardly as relevant as the overt lies committed and given a pass by the Obama Administration led FBI and DOJ. I hope Americans wakeup to the injustice of Mueller tactics against all things President Trump and the actual crimes that Obama/Crooked Hillary Dems committed with absolutely zero consequences.

My Intro Thoughts on WND’s Limbaugh on Perjury Traps


John R. Houk

© November 28, 2018

Special Prosecutor – or is it Counselor or perhaps Deep State Persecutor – Robert Mueller has been using his prosecutorial powers NOT TO INVESTIGATE  a Trump/Russia connection to subvert the 2016 Election. RATHER Mueller has used nearly unlimited power provided by Deep State acolyte Rod Rosenstein to create the delusion of Trump obstruction of justice via totally unconnected to the Special Counsel purpose to manufacture perjury traps.

 

To date every American indicted by Mueller’s team of Dem/Hillary witch hunters has been tried or plea dealed for undermining the election as agents of Russia, but perjury traps based on faulty memories rather than lies

 

WORSE! How did Mueller get agreements to plea deals from the accused? Not by evidence of wrong doing, but by taking miniscule differences in under oath interviews results.

 

Why wouldn’t the accused fight the accusations? Because of the threat of horrendously outrageous legal bills that would bankrupt the accused families. These Prosecutors/Persecutors – win or lose – have no personal financial stake. And so at the end of the day, they go home to their families planning activities, vacations, birthdays, Christmas gatherings, etc. WITHOUT the worry that litigation placed a strain on their budgets.

 

I have noticed Jerome Corsi is the latest victim of this expensive to defend perjury trap ploy. It appears that Corsi – so far – is not willing to cave to the financial burdens imposed by Mueller with frivolous legal traps to bring down Trump and all who support the President against Democratic Party wickedness.

 

Below are some details of Corsi’s plight from a WND article.

LIMBAUGH: ‘NOTHING ANYBODY CAN DO TO STOP THESE PEOPLE’

‘I’ve run out of words to express my anger’

 

November 28, 2018

WND

 

Robert Mueller

 

Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh became audibly livid Wednesday as he lamented how the probe by special counsel Robert Mueller into alleged Russian collusion with Donald Trump continues with no end in sight, ruining the lives of people tangentially connected in the meantime.

 

“It’s all rooted in the fact that they’ve got nothing!” Limbaugh shouted. “And I’m sorry if I sound mad about this, ’cause I am! I am fit to be tied over it! It has been a hoax. It has been a travesty from the very get-go.”

 

He blamed what called a “fake, phony, fraudulent dossier” about Trump as the main reason for the ongoing probe, saying it “frosts me to the degree that I’ve run out of words to express my anger.”

 

“A made up political opposition research document that contains not one element of truth was used to get FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. It’s why [former Trump campaign manager Paul] Manafort’s going to jail. It’s why [author] Jerome Corsi’s being pressured with threatened with going to jail and [former Trump adviser Roger] Stone and all these ancillary players that had nothing to do with anything regarding the 2016 election.

 

Jerome Corsi (Fox News video screenshot)

 

“And there’s nothing anybody can do to stop these people. You’ve got the rest of the Drive-By Media acting as cheerleaders for all of this. It is a travesty. It is an outrage. And all the while we’re being told the people running this investigation have impeccable honor, impeccable integrity. The people we can trust, of all people in Washington. What an absolute crock this is.”

 

Limbaugh said minor players such as Stone and Corsi in the drama “have as much do with Russian collusion as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.”

 

“The idea that Jerome Corsi has anything to do with this is literally absurd! But because they think they found a connection between Corsi and Julian Assange and WikiLeaks and the Podesta emails – wait a minute. What happened to Trump colluding with Putin? What happened to the Russians tampering with votes? What happened to the Russians colluding the – what is this about WikiLeaks and all these people supposedly connected to WikiLeaks?”

 

Radio host Rush Limbaugh

 

Limbaugh said the only way to battle what’s taking place is to flood the American people with truth and facts about this:

 

What really galls me is that we keep hearing and have always heard about the integrity of Robert Mueller. You must be very careful criticizing Robert Mueller. Robert Mueller has served as the director of the FBI, served presidents of both parties. He’s perfectly nonpartisan. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Open our mouths and let them shovel it all in. And we happily chew away, and it’s all a crock!

 

If there were any integrity – and I mean this from the bottom of my sizable and beating-in-rhythm heart – if there were any integrity in this investigative team, they would have shut this thing down a month after they learned what has never happened and they would have shifted their direction toward the Democrats and the Hillary campaign and all of the fraud that existed in taking a phony document to the FISA court to get warrants to spy on innocent people while the FBI planted spies in the Trump campaign.

 

People with integrity, the kind of integrity we’re told Mueller has in abundance, would have immediately seen what’s gone on and brought a stop to all this. But no. That’s not what happened. It’s very clear what this is. This is the Washington establishment, the elites, the Deep State, whatever you want to call it, remaining focused and using every ounce of federal power they can amass to continue their efforts to overturn the results of the election of 2016 and to destroy anybody they can who had anything to do with Trump winning.

Can’t Use Commerce Laws to Illegalize FGM Child Abuse


John R. Houk

© November 23, 2018

Nothing to be thankful for from Multiculturalist Leftist Federal Judges that ignore the law to rule in favor of Islamic traditions over the rule of law!

 

U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman (residing in Detroit) ruled that a Federal Law made 22 years ago was unconstitutional allowing Muslims to proceed in the child abuse of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).

 

FGM is overwhelmingly practiced among Muslims as a matter of tradition. Multiculturalist Left Wing organizations (National & Global) go out of the way to point out that Islam theologically does not mandate FGM. The same organizations will point out that a minority of Christian and Jewish based people also practice FGM.

 

The only thing accurate in downplaying the Muslim practice of FGM is the abusive practice is more cultural than religious but fail to be informative of the huge number of Muslims that have a tradition of FGM and indeed associate it with their religious faith. Also the Christians and Jews known to abuse their children with FGM are culturally influenced by the Muslims in close proximity (primarily Copts of Egypt and Black-Africans who identify themselves as Jewish in Ethiopia).

 

So YES this is primarily an Islamic issue especially as it is Muslim refugees or Muslim immigrants from whence FGM is practiced are now flouting Western Laws in Europe and the U.S. to perpetuate FGM in the West in the name of their Muslim traditions.

 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), female genital mutilation (FGM), also referred to as “female circumcision” or “female cutting”, “comprises all procedures that involve partial or total removal of the external female genitalia, or other injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons” [1]. The WHO estimates that about 140 million girls and women worldwide are living with the consequences of FGM and that every year in Africa alone, about 3 million girls are at risk for genital mutilation [1]. FGM has been documented in 28 African countries and in some countries in Asia and the Middle East [2]. However, it has also become a human rights and health issue in western countries where the practice is continued by immigrants from countries where FGM is commonly performed [3]. For instance, the German organization “Terre des Femmes” estimates that about 30.000 girls and women living in Germany have undergone or are at risk of being subjected to FGM [4].

 

Given the fact that some Sunni Muslims legitimate FGM by quoting a controversial hadith (a saying attributed to the Prophet Mohammed) in which the Prophet allegedly did not object to FGM provided cutting was not too severe 56 and that the least invasive type of FGM (partial or total removal of the clitoris and/or the prepuce) is also called “Sunna Circumcision” [7], FGM is widely considered to be associated with Islam. However, during a conference held in Cairo/Egypt in 2006, Muslim scholars from various nations declared FGM to be un-islamic 89 and, in fact, the traditional cultural practice of FGM predates both Islam and Christianity. …  According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, FGM is actually practiced by Muslim, Christian and Jewish groups. There are countries, such as Nigeria, Tanzania and Niger, where the prevalence of FGM is even greater among Christian groups [11]. In Egypt, FGM is also practiced on Coptic girls [12], while in Ethiopia, the Beta Israel or Falashas, a Jewish minority, subject their girls to genital mutilation [5].

 

… Yet, a Jewish minority group living in Ethiopia, the so-called Falashas or Beta Israel, practice ritual female genital surgery [15]. Buff believes that “as a persecuted and isolated Jewish enclave for thousands of years, the Falashas did not have access to either definitive Jewish texts or informed rabbinical sources” [14]. In fact, the Falashas practice an archaic form of Judaism, strictly adhering to the Pentateuch, the five books of Moses. They do not speak or read Hebrew. Their bible is written in Ge’ez, which is the clerical language of the Ethiopian and Eritrean orthodox church, and they do not know the other important religious scriptures of Judaism, the Talmud and the Mishnah 1617. The Falashas consider themselves descendants of the tribe of “Dan”, one of the 10 “lost tribes of Israel”, and were acknowledged as such, and therefore as being officially Jewish, by the Israeli government in 1975 [17]. … After their immigration to Israel, the Ethiopian Jews were converted to orthodox rabbinic Judaism. Nowadays, only a minority is still living in Ethiopia [17].

 

… The authors also found that the customs of FGM is readily given up by Ethiopian Jews right after their immigration to Israel, as “they see themselves a part of a Jewish society without FGM” [15].

 

Christian view on FGM

 

Literature dealing with the Christian view on FGM is very scarce, however, Christian authorities unanimously agree that FGM has no foundation in the religious texts of Christianity 1819202122. During the 2006 conference of The East Africa Program, the attending Christian (Coptic) leaders emphasized that “Christian doctrine is clear on the sanctity of the human body” [22]. Yet, as has already been mentioned before, FGM is practiced among Christian groups, e.g. in Egypt, Nigeria, Tanzania and Kenya. Although FGM is not prescribed by religious law, many of those practicing it may consider it a religious obligation, as female sexual purity plays an important role, not only in Christianity, but in all monotheistic religions. (The Jewish and Christian view on female genital mutilation; [Ingrid] El-Damanhoury, Ed.; ScienceDirectAfrican Journal of Urology: Volume 19, Issue 3, September 2013, Pages 127-129)

 

Trying to protect Islam’s reputation by claiming Christians and Jews practice FGM abuse is a bit disingenuous when undoubtedly the largest numbers clearly lay with Islam.

 

AND it is obvious to me that Federal Judge Bernard Friedman ruled laws outlawing FGM unconstitutional was an act of dhimmitude homage to one of the largest Islamic population centers in the USA namely the Detroit metropolitan area – MY FIRST REACTION.

 

AFTER READING MORE INFO – If I was to give Judge Friedman any benefit of the doubt, it might seem the Judge is saying legislate a better law that specifically addresses Female Genital Mutilation as child abuse rather than manipulate statutes to use Commerce Laws to illegalize FGM.

Federal judge strikes down U.S. ban on female genital mutilation

 

By Leo Hohmann

November 21, 2018

LeoHohmann.com

 

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala was charged in Detroit in April 2017 with mutilating the genitalia of young girls.

 

It is now OK in America for parents to deliver their daughters up to hack “doctors” and nurses who will mutilate their genitals and call it a religious ritual, thanks to a federal judge in Detroit.

 

U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman on Tuesday dismissed female genital mutilation charges against several doctors in the first criminal case of its kind nationwide, ruling the law is unconstitutional, the Detroit News reported.

 

Friedman’s insane opinion comes two weeks after defense lawyers mounted the first challenge to an FGM law passed by Congress in 1996. The law sat there for 19 years without a single prosecution until April 2017. That’s when former Attorney General Jeff Sessions decided to prosecute two Muslim doctors, a wife of one of the doctors and the parents of nine girls who were transported to a clinic in Michigan, several of them across state lines, to have their genitals cut.

 

Co-defendant Dr. Fakhruddin Attar

 

Prosecutors said at the time that upwards of 100 girls ranging in age from 7 to 12 had been sent to the clinic, which sounds more like a Third World torture chamber.

 

The U.S. already allows up to 1 million babies to be aborted every year. Now our judges say it’s acceptable to mutilate young girls. What is the future for a society unable or unwilling to protect its most vulnerable?

 

Until Sessions’ brought this case, no one had ever been prosecuted under the 22-year-old federal law, not under presidents Clinton, Bush or Obama.

 

Prosecutors told the Detroit News that the girls — four from Michigan, two from Minnesota and three from Illinois — underwent the brutal FBM procedure of having their clitorises fully or partially removed. But defense lawyer Shannon Smith argued that the procedure performed on the girls was “benign” and not a mutilation. It was part of their religion and their culture and therefore should not be prevented by law.

 

Attorney Shannon Smith specializes in defending people against sexual crimes.

 

She found a sympathetic ear in the liberal Judge Friedman, who apparently found a loophole in the 1996 law in which he was able to deny that the FGM doctors and parents were engaged in interstate commerce and therefore committed no federal crime.

 

The doctors involved still face charges of conspiracy and obstruction and could face up to 30 years or more in prison if convicted on those counts.

 

Hopefully the U.S. Department of Justice will appeal this ghastly ruling by Judge Friedman. In the meantime, this should prompt Congress to go back and tweak the 1996 law to make sure it is strictly enforceable.

 

Dr. Jumana Nagarwala of Northville, Michigan, was arrested in April 2017 and accused of heading a conspiracy that lasted 12 years, involved seven other people and led to mutilating the genitalia of nine girls as part of a religious procedure practiced by some members of the Dawoodi Bohra, a Muslim sect from India that has a small community in Metro Detroit.

 

Most local members of the sect involved belong to the Anjuman-e-Najmi mosque in Farmington Hills.

 

The judge’s opinion drops charges against three mothers. They are:

 

  • Farida Arif of Oakland County, who was charged with participating in the conspiracy and having her daughter undergo female genital mutilation.

 

  • Two mothers from Minnesota, Haseena Halfal and Zainab Hariyanawala, who were charged last year with female genital mutilation and conspiracy to commit female genital mutilation. The allegations involve their daughters, who were 7 at the time of the procedure.

 

The order Tuesday also dismissed charges against Tahera Shafiq, 49, of Farmington Hills. She was accused of participating in the procedure involving the Minnesota girls.

 

“She’s done, for the time being,” Shafiq’s lawyer, Jerome Sabbota, said. “It’s wonderful. She can go about her life. These are deeply religious people, and a lot of people don’t understand that.”

 

Worldwide, an estimated 140 million women and girls have undergone the procedure, according to the World Health Organization. More than 3 million girls in Africa undergo the procedure each year.

 

The procedure has been illegal in the U.S. since 1996, and there are no medical benefits for girls and women, according to the World Health Organization.

 

Female genital mutilation is an internationally recognized violation of human rights.

 

Some members of the Dawoodi Bohra community who have spoken against the procedure say the surgery is performed to suppress female sexuality, reduce sexual pleasure and curb promiscuity, according to court records.

 

The procedure is most common in parts of Africa, the Middle East and Asia, along with migrants from those regions, according to the World Health Organization. For example, 99 percent of girls in Somali have their genitals mutilated while more than 85 percent of girls in Egypt are mutilated.

 

In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control estimate that up to 500,000 women and girls are at risk of having the barbaric procedure performed on them. This high number is largely due to the increasing number of refugees, asylees and migrants imported to the U.S. from the Third World over the last 35 years. The vast majority of the refugees entering the U.S. every year, about 95 percent, are hand-selected by the United Nations.

 

There are four major types of female genital mutilation, including a partial or total removal of the clitoris.

 

Prosecutors in Michigan alleged that two girls’ clitorises were completely removed, but the evidence is lacking for at least one girl, Smith said.

Dem official’s attempted use of bogus altered ballots in Florida a serious offense, could trigger RICO probe

 

By  Samantha Chang 

November 17, 2018

BizPac Review

 

Voter fraud is apparently rampant in Florida based on bombshell emails uncovered by USA Today. A Democrat Party official “directed aides to share altered election forms with voters in an effort to fix ballot signature problems a day AFTER polls closed,” according to the damning emails.

 

Election experts say use of the altered forms — which turned up in four Florida counties — was apparently an effort to boost the number of Democrat votes in the state’s hotly-contested gubernatorial and Senate races.

 

The deadline in the forms was retroactively altered to read November 8.  Here’s what the altered forms look like.

 

ALTERED INSTRUCTIONS

 

Here’s what the original forms looked like. It directed voters to return the mail-in ballot by November 5.

Altering state forms is a criminal offense, and the Department of Justice is investigating the bogus mail-in ballots pursuant to a referral from the Florida Department of State.

 

A GOP lawyer told Breitbart the bogus ballots could be grounds for a potential RICO (organized crime) investigation.

 

The ploy even disgusted Democrat campaign consultant Jake Sanders, who said he had warned party officials about the illegality of using altered ballots, and was ignored.

 

“Self-imposing a fake deadline and deceiving people is counter to [standing up for voters],” Sanders told USA Today.

 

Election expert Charles Zelden said this deception could be construed as a reckless “Hail Mary effort” on the part of the Democrat Party to rig the election.

 

“If this is an attempt at fraud to sneak in votes that would have not been counted otherwise…it does play into the narrative of Republicans that this is a fraudulent effort,” said Zelden, a political science professor at Nova Southeastern University in Florida.

 

Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida has repeatedly warned that Democrats are trying to “steal the election.”
