JUDICIAL WATCH: FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS FBI TO SEARCH FOR STEELE DOCUMENTS


Wouldn’t it be good to know when the FBI knew the Steele Dossier was bogus and yet how often the bogus document was presented to a FISA Court for warrants to spy on President Trump during and after the 2016 election campaign? Judicial Watch is taking steps to configure the time frame especially since it is apparent FBI Director Christopher Wray has no intention to clean his house of corruption.

JUDICIAL WATCH: FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS FBI TO SEARCH FOR STEELE DOCUMENTS

 

Christopher Steele

 

JW Press Release

August 19, 2019 (sent: 8/19/19 2:45 PM)

Judicial Watch

 

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that U.S. District Court Judge Christopher Cooper ordered the FBI to conduct a search within 60 days for records of communications with former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele post-dating Steele’s service as an FBI confidential source. In ordering the supplemental search for records, Judge Cooper held:

[T]he potential for illuminating the FBI’s activities is not too difficult to discern. Communications post-dating Steele’s time as an informant might reveal a great deal about why the FBI developed him as a CHS [confidential human source], his performance as a CHS, and why the FBI opted to terminate its relationship with him. Those records might either bolster or weaken Steele’s credibility as a source. That information, in turn, could provide a basis on which to evaluate the FBI’s performance of its law-enforcement duties, including its judgment in selecting and relying on confidential sources, especially in connection with such a politically sensitive subject. Of course, the records Judicial Watch speculates about might not even exist—and even if they do, they may not reveal anything significant about the FBI’s operations. But that they might do so makes them a matter of potential public interest.

The court ruling came in the Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for records of communications and payments between the FBI, Christopher Steele and his private firm, Orbis Business Intelligence (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice) (No. 1:17-cv-00916)). The lawsuit seeks:

 

  • All records of communications between any official, employee, or representative of the FBI and Mr. Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer and the owner of the private firm Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

  • All records related to the proposed, planned, or actual payment of any funds to Mr. Steele and/or Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

  • All records produced in preparation for, during, or pursuant to any meetings or telephonic conversations between any official, employee, or representative of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mr. Christopher Steele and/or any employee or representative of Orbis Business Intelligence.

 

The court initially ruled in favor of a DOJ “Glomar” response to Judicial Watch’s March 8, 2017, FOIA request stating that it could “neither confirm nor deny the existence of records responsive to [Judicial Watch’s] request.” On March 26, 2018, subsequent to the declassification of records revealing Steele’s role as an FBI informant and his firing by the FBI in November 2016, the court reopened the case at Judicial Watch’s request. The FBI, however, continued refusing to search for records post-dating Steele’s dismissal, contending that any records discovered would be exempt from disclosure on privacy grounds.

In Friday’s ruling, Judge Cooper held that, on balance, any privacy interests Steele may have in keeping the documents secret are outweighed by the public’s interest in disclosure:

 

Steele’s privacy interests are far different from those courts usually consider under Exemption 7(C), where disclosure would make public for the first time an individual’s affiliation with law enforcement, whether as agent, cooperator, or target… The balance therefore tilts in favor of disclosure. Accordingly, the Court will order the FBI to conduct a search for records post-dating Steele’s service as a confidential source.

 

“The court was right to turn aside the FBI’s fake concerns for Clinton spy Christopher Steele’s privacy and order the agency to search for more records on its use of Steele and his Dossier to target President Trump,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “That the FBI is still protecting Christopher Steele and the Clinton spy ring at Fusion GPS should tell you there is much more corruption to be exposed in the coup efforts against President Trump.”

Documents previously produced in this lawsuit show that the FBI paid Steele at least 11 times during the 2016 presidential campaign and then fired him for leaking.

Judicial Watch also uncovered smoking gun documents showing that former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr remained in regular contact with Steele after Steele was terminated by the FBI in November 2016 for revealing to the media his position as an FBI confidential informant.

Through another FOIA lawsuit, Judicial Watch obtained emails of Bruce Ohr discussing information obtained through his wife Nellie, which he passed on to the FBI. The information contained anti-Trump dossier materials, including a spreadsheet that tries to link President Trump to dozens of Russians. These Justice Department documents also contain Russia-related emails sent from Nellie Ohr to high-ranking DOJ official Lisa Holtyn during the period Ohr worked with anti-Trump firm Fusion GPS, which contracted with Steele to create the Trump Dossier. Holtyn at the time was a top aide to Bruce Ohr.

Judicial later acquired FBI 302 interview forms of Bruce Ohr’s reporting information he received from Steele to his FBI handlers.

Judicial Watch additionally uncovered documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing that State Department “Special Coordinator for Libya” Jonathan Winer played a key role in facilitating Steele’s access to other top government officials and prominent international business executives.

WHY IN THE WORLD IS CROOKED HILLARY NOT BEING PROSECUTED!?


John R. Houk

© July 8, 2019

 

In less than a week’s time the Crooked Hillary lawyer Heather Samuelson and the illegal email server have caught my attention:

 

 

 

In both those cases Judicial Watch was the listed primary source.

 

Out of curiosity I ran a label search of my SlantRight 2.0 blog for the label Heather Samuelson. I don’t understand the search protocol reasoning, for the results are scattered by date. And by “scattered” I mean there is no sequential order. In some cases “Heather Samuelson” may show only once and not the primary subject of the pages listed; however Crooked Hillary definitely was the central theme. If you run a similar label search you may or may not get the same results. At this point I’m not going to verify if the search results are the same every time. The dates stretch 2019 through 2016 where the name Heather Samuelson appears at least once.

 

My WordPress platform blog – NCCR – also returned scattered results for a Heather Samuelson search returning similar dates ranging from 2019-2016.

 

AGAIN Heather Samuelson is showing up implicating a Crooked Hillary criminal intent. This time from The Gateway Pundit who also sources Judicial Watch.

 

TGP lays out the Judicial Watch findings and the last 5 paragraphs or so has this damning conclusion:

 

And here is where Samuelson lays an egg!  Samuelson noticed during her review that Hillary’s emails were displayed as hrod17@clintonemail.com,  but this address was not even created until after Hillary was Secretary of State. 

 

You can’t send emails from an account that is not created or in place!

 

The only reasonable explanations for the receipt of emails from a domain that was not yet in place is, 1)  the source name in the emails had been doctored and updated to an email account not yet in service, or 2) a utility was used to copy the emails in bulk from one account to another and in the process change some of the fields including the original email source.

 

Why would Hillary do this?  The only explanation that makes sense is that the Hillary team was trying to eliminate or strip out all the classified markings in her emails, and in the process, they stripped out the old email addresses, and since that account didn’t exist anymore, their process added the new address.

 

To put it plainly – Hillary attempted to doctor (i.e. change) her emails for some reason and in so doing she inadvertently changed her email address.

 

Clearly if Hillary was caught editing her emails by the FBI, then former FBI Director James Comey knew very well that Hillary intended to break the law!  Three years ago Jim Comey lied to America!

 

In essence: WHY IN THE WORLD IS CROOKED HILLARY NOT BEING PROSECUTED!?

BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Judicial Watch Uncovers Clinton Attorney Samuelson Interview with FBI – Indicates Hillary’s Emails Were Altered and Other Crimes

 

By Joe Hoft

July 8, 2019

The Gateway Pundit

 

Crooked Hillary Checking BlackBerry Wearing Sunglasses [2011]

 

Hillary Clinton likely attempted to alter her emails in an effort to cover up illegal activities rather than just deleting emails as was previously reported.  Judicial Watch’s efforts to obtain her attorney’s interview with the FBI show this and other criminal actions!

 

Judicial Watch again has performed a service to the country.  In its efforts to get to the truth, Judicial Watch may have uncovered another shocking revelation in the Hillary Clinton email saga.

 

In June of 2019 Judicial Watch posted the interview notes it received from the government between the FBI and Hillary Clinton’s attorney Heather Samuelson.  Hidden in the deposition are bits of information that when compared to information made public to date in the Hillary email case make no sense at all.

 

In the interview Samuelson states to the FBI’s Peter Strzok that she was assigned the duty of reviewing Hillary’s emails and in doing so, Samuelson reviewed the emails on her laptop both at her apartment and in Cheryl Mills’ office.

 

FBI Notes Heather Samuelson Interview 1

 

As is the case with the entire Hillary email coverup, the Clintons and her team were above the law.  Others have been thrown in jail for similar actions.  (For example, one NSA employee who brought hacking tools home was sentenced to 66 months in prison.)

 

Samuelson was assigned the task of obtaining Hillary’s emails for her tenure as Obama’s Secretary of State.  After making a request for Hillary’s emails from Platte River Networks (PRN), the firm that administered Hillary’s personal email system, Samuelson reviewed them and noticed that some of Hillary’s emails were missing.

 

FBI Notes Heather Samuelson Interview 2 red marks & redaction

 

Samuelson stated that she believed that Hillary’s emails that were missing for the period between January 2009 through March 2009 must have not been backed up.

 

But this makes no sense.  Classification only works on classification ‘enabled’ systems. For example, in a typical agency, when a document is created it is immediately stamped electronically and visually (water mark or text stamp) with the classification level. From that point forward, when the document is stored on a server, sent via email, or printed out, it will go through a number of security controls that will prevent certain operations on it. For example, if you are a user with lower level security clearance, you won’t be able to see the document name, its metadata, content, or be able to print it. In fact, the document won’t even show up in any of the searches.

 

This is where her story really begins to not make sense. There is no way that a backup would be deleted of anyone’s emails in the government, especially those of someone at the level of the Secretary of State.

 

The classified email systems used by the government are highly sophisticated (per an IT expert we contacted). These classification systems are fully automated in order to remove the human factor/errors from the process. These systems also control the entire document life cycle from its creation to its declassification and are tied to the organization’s access control and audit systems. So you can see exactly who and when the document was viewed (even which pages were views, how long it was on the screen, etc.). If there is no classification system in place, then all of the documents on the server can be considered breached. This is even without any proof of an external hacker accessing it.

 

The reason for this is the exact scenario described by Samuelson, i.e. one in which an individual such as a system/personal attorney without the proper security clearance would view and make electronic/physical copies of the documents.

 

Next Samuelson makes another shocking remark.  She states that after Clinton left the State Department she started using another domain for her emails (@hrcoffice.com).  But she states that no old emails were transferred from the clintonemail.com domain to the new domain.  She also stated that she didn’t know how Clinton or her close assistant Huma Abedin obtained her old emails once the new domain was established.

 

FBI Notes Heather Samuelson Interview 3

 

At this point it’s important to note that most people view the whole Clinton email server saga as an honest mistake that was going to be remedied somewhere down the road by putting the ‘proper security controls’ in place. This is certainly how Hillary, her staff, and the media justified it. But this is not the case; the whole purpose of a standalone email server from the get go was for Hillary to circumvent government email system security controls.

 

Hillary’s emails contained classified material because former FBI Director James Comey told us this in his infamous press conference three years ago nearly to the day.  But Samuelson stated that she didn’t believe that Hillary’s emails were classified because they did not have classified markings on them.

 

FBI Notes Heather Samuelson Interview 4

 

And here is where Samuelson lays an egg!  Samuelson noticed during her review that Hillary’s emails were displayed as hrod17@clintonemail.com,  but this address was not even created until after Hillary was Secretary of State. 

 

FBI Notes Heather Samuelson Interview 5 redaction

 

You can’t send emails from an account that is not created or in place!

 

The only reasonable explanations for the receipt of emails from a domain that was not yet in place is, 1)  the source name in the emails had been doctored and updated to an email account not yet in service, or 2) a utility was used to copy the emails in bulk from one account to another and in the process change some of the fields including the original email source.

 

Why would Hillary do this?  The only explanation that makes sense is that the Hillary team was trying to eliminate or strip out all the classified markings in her emails, and in the process, they stripped out the old email addresses, and since that account didn’t exist anymore, their process added the new address.

 

To put it plainly – Hillary attempted to doctor (i.e. change) her emails for some reason and in so doing she inadvertently changed her email address.

 

Clearly if Hillary was caught editing her emails by the FBI, then former FBI Director James Comey knew very well that Hillary intended to break the law!  Three years ago Jim Comey lied to America!

BREAKING: CLINTON LAWYER CAUGHT OUT!


It is my humble opinion – sure to anger some – that info from anonymous sources with the appellation “QAnon,” “Vendetta” or the such tend to deliver a message that spurs embellished excitement rather than integrity based data. HOWEVER, I just ran into a video from The Vincent Vendetta Channel that is using a source of integrity in Judicial Watch. If you are a fan of those anonymous sourced outlets you definitely trust this particular video post (which also provides a bitchute link in case Youtube goes censorship crazy).

KERRY STATE DEPARTMENT PROMOTED STEELE DOSSIER AND RUSSIA COLLUSION FANTASY

Let’s do a movie about this!

 

By Lloyd Billingsley

June 17, 2019

FrontPageMag

 

Dept. of State

 

One day before the FBI launched its Trump-Russia investigation, Sovietophile academic Nellie Ohr, wife of DOJ boss Bruce Ohr and an employee of Fusion GPS, met with former British spy Christopher Steele. The upper reaches of the FBI and DOJ – Ohr, McCabe, Comey, Strzok, Page and such – have drawn the most attention in the fake Russia collusion story. It now emerges that the elusive Steele also deployed collaborators at the U.S. Department of State.

 

As 43 pages of documents obtained by Judicial Watch explain, “State Department ‘Special Coordinator for Libya’ Jonathan Winer played a key role in facilitating dossier author Christopher Steele’s access to other top government officials,” and “prominent international business executives.”

 

According to the Middle East Institute, Jonathan M. Winer was “deputy assistant secretary of state for international law enforcement, and counsel to United States Senator John Kerry.” Winer has written and lectured widely on, among other things, “corruption, and U.S.-Russia issues,” which seems somewhat removed from the Yale alum’s background.

 

In November of 2014, Winer sought to hook up Steele with Nelson Cunningham, president of McLarty Associates, a consulting firm co-founded by former Clinton White House Counselor Thomas ‘Mack’ McLarty. Winer’s email describes Steele as “an old friend of mine,” and “a former senior British intelligence officer focusing on former Soviet Union with a number of US and European private sector clients these days…”

 

In November of 2014, Winer “openly acts as a liaison for Steele,” attempting to set up meetings for “Chris” and referencing “Three Orbis Reports” in the subject line of the email. That same month Winer set up Steele with Ariuna Namsrai of ACPO “one of the world’s leading advisory and advocacy communications consultancies.”

 

Jumping ahead to January of 2017, movie producer Eric Hamburg forwards an article on the Steele dossier to Winer, proclaiming “Let’s do a movie about this!” Hamburg is the producer of the 1995 Nixon, starring Anthony Hopkins and directed by Oliver Stone. As it happens, Hamburg’s IMDB profile shows him posing with Hillary Clinton.

 

In February of 2018, Winer wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post claiming that Steele told him in 2016 he had “learned of disturbing information regarding possible ties between Donald Trump, his campaign and senior Russian officials.” Steele and Clinton factotum Sidney Blumenthal approached Winer with “separate dossiers.” No word whether the DNC also paid for Blumenthal’s dossier and whether his high concept featured any Russian whores urinating on a bed. Scenarios like that doubtless had Eric Hamburg panting to produce a movie.

 

“These documents show that Fusion GPS and Clinton spy Christopher Steele had a close relationship with the Obama State Department,” said a statement from Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “The State Department under John Kerry is emerging as another center of the Spygate conspiracy against President Trump.” That should come as no surprise.

 

Kerry once testified that U.S. actions in Vietnam were “reminiscent of Genghis Khan.” Kerry said the 2015 Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack in France had a “sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy” and “a rationale that you could attach yourself to.” Kerry described the terrorist attack as obscurantisme, which even in French fell a bit short. The performance prompted Sen. John McCain to call Kerry, “the most inept secretary of state, certainly in my lifetime.” And when no longer Secretary of State, Kerry still acted like one.

 

After President Trump nixed the Iran deal, Kerry duly showed up in Iran for back-channel talks. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasted Kerry for “actively undermining” administration’s policy toward the Islamic Republic.

 

For his part, Jonathan Winer was a State Department “Special Coordinator” for Libya, but what he managed to coordinate there remains unclear. For Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the murder of four Americans was all about some internet video, and after all, what did it matter?

 

As the State Department emails obtained by Judicial Watch show, Jonathan Winer was, in effect, Steele’s personal agent with the State Department, the Clinton propaganda machine, and even the entertainment industry. So Winer qualifies as an associate producer of the Russia collusion show, which the Democrat-media axis shows no sign of abandoning. It’s the biggest production on the left since Barry Soetoro teamed with David Axelrod on Dreams from My Father, which official biographer David Garrow called a novel, and the author a “composite character.”

 

Meanwhile, Attorney General William Barr is aiming at a broad-based, multifaceted investigation of the Russia collusion story’s origins. As other emails obtained by Judicial Watch reveal, the DOJ’s Bruce Ohr, Nellie’s husband, grabbed bonuses while that was going on, and bagged a pay raise after he lost his job as Associate Deputy Attorney General.

 

Prosecutor John Durham should find out if that was a reward for the Ohrs’ role in the illicit targeting of President Trump. In similar style, Durham might have a look at State Department records, and what they reveal about the multifaceted Jonathan Winer.

 

Curious observers might note that the State Department did not volunteer the material about Winer’s connections with Christopher Steele. Likewise, no congressional committee and nobody in the establishment media came up with the documents. The revelation resulted from legal action by Judicial Watch, whose motto is “because no one is above the law!” Other pertinent Judicial Watch revelations can be found at this link.

FBI Failed to Document Four Clinton Witness Interviews. Barr Should Reopen Clinton Probe

 

By Sara Carter

June 3, 2019

William Barr

 

The FBI failed to document at least four interviews of witnesses in the bureau’s investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server to send classified emails, according to documents obtained by the government watchdog Judicial Watch.

 

Judicial Watch also discovered among the 218 pages of emails between former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page that then FBI General Counsel James Baker had instructed “FBI officials to expedite the release of FBI investigative material to Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall in August 2016. Kendall and the FBI’s top lawyer discussed specifically quickly obtaining the “302” report of the FBI/DOJ interview of Mrs. Clinton.”

 

These findings are significant, as they come at a crucial time when the Department of Justice under Attorney General William Barr is investigating the bureau’s handling of both the Clinton probe and the investigation into the origination of the bureau’s investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign alleged – now debunked – ties to Russia.

 

“These incredible documents show the leadership of the FBI rushed to give Hillary Clinton her FBI interview report shortly before the election,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And the documents also show the FBI failed to timely document interviews in the Clinton email ‘matter’ – further confirming the whole investigation was a joke. AG Barr can’t reopen the Clinton email investigation soon enough.”

 

The information obtained by Judicial Watch coincides with documents obtained by Congressional investigations. For example, Rep. John Ratcliffe, a former federal prosecutor who sits on the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox New’s Maria Bartiromo Sunday that Strzok’s involvement in the Trump campaign’s defensive briefing mired in conflict.

 

First, Ratcliffe noted that it was Strzok who opened the official investigation into Trump’s campaign on July 31, 2016 dubbed “Crossfire Hurricane.” Ratcliffe warned that U.S. Attorney John Durham, who has been appointed by Barr to investigate the bureau, was essentially acting as a ‘special counsel’ in the DOJ’s investigation.

 

“It’s interesting that 18 days later on August 17, of 2016 that the FBI and CIA conducted a counterintelligence briefing for the purpose of protecting and warning Donald Trump would put in charge for coordinating that briefing Peter Strzok – the same agent who was already investigating the Trump campaign,” Ratcliffe told Bartiromo. “The same agent who eight days before that defensive briefing to protect and warn Donald Trump sent a text message saying he was going to ‘stop him.’ Then two days before that defensive briefing sent a text message saying ‘we need an insurance policy’ against the Trump presidency.”

 

“So little wonder on that day of August 17, 2016 Donald Trump isn’t warned about Russian interference in his campaign and he wasn’t briefed about the Steele Dossier, wasn’t briefed about Carter Page,” Ratcliffe added.

 

Currently, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz is putting together his report on the FBI’s handling of the FBI’s probe into the Trump campaign. According to numerous congressional sources the investigation is expected to include the FBI’s defensive briefing to Trump and the lack of information provided to the Trump campaign. Strzok, who was vehemently anti-Trump in his text messages to Page, is also expected to be a significant part of the Horowitz investigation.

Rep. John Ratcliffe Reveals Peter Strzok’s Role in Spying on Trump Campaign]

 

Judicial Watch FOIA:

 

The documents were obtained in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a December 4, 2017, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:18-cv-00154)) for:

 

  • All records of communications, including but not limited to, emails, text messages and instant chats, between FBI official Peter Strozk and FBI attorney Lisa Page;

 

  • All travel requests, travel authorizations, travel vouchers and expense reports of Peter Strozk;

 

  • All travel requests, travel authorizations, travel vouchers and expense reports of Lisa Page.

 

Revelation: Below Is an ‘Exact Excerpt’ From Judicial Watch’s Findings

 

On August 16, 2016, at 10:02 p.m. Baker emails then-Associate Deputy Director David Bowdich; Michael Steinbach, former executive assistant director for national security; former Acting Assistant Director Jason V. Herring; former FBI lawyer Lisa Page; former Principal Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson; Michael Kortan, FBI assistant director for public affairs, now retired; James Rybicki, former chief of staff to Comey; and others to inform them that he “just spoke” with Clinton’s lawyer Kendall, who requested documents from the FBI. Baker says he told Kendall he would “need to submit a request.” Baker tells them, “I said we would process it expeditiously.”

 

I just spoke with David Kendall … I conveyed our view that in order to obtain the documents [FBI investigative material] they are seeking they need to submit a request pursuant to the Privacy Act and FOIA. I said they could submit a letter to me covering both statutes. They will send it in the morning. I said that we would process it expeditiously. David asked us to focus first on the Secretary’s 302 [FBI interview report]. I said OK. [Redacted] We will have to focus on this issue tomorrow and get the 302 out the door as soon as possible and then focus on the rest of the stuff.

 

The following day, August 17, 2016, Kendall sent a FOIA/Privacy Act request on “behalf of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton” to the FBI’s top lawyer with a request for “expeditious processing.” Baker passes this request to Bowdich, Steinbach, Herring, Page, Anderson:

 

 

“In my view, we need to move as quickly as possible on this, but pursuant to David’s oral request last night, we should focus first on Secretary Clinton’s 302…. Is the end of this week out of the question for her 302?”

 

In a follow-up email exchange, the same day, Anderson arranged for Herring, Page, former FBI Assistant Director and head of the Office of Congressional Affairs Gregory Brower, Strzok and others to “coordinate a plan for processing and releasing” Clinton’s 302, though one official reminds others that they should process the request “consistent” with other requests.

 

Then, in an August 21, 2016, email exchange Baker tells his people that he would “alert” Kendall shortly before Clinton’s 302 was to be posted on the FBI’s FOIA Vault webpage. On September 2, 2016, the FBI announced the release of Clinton’s interview documents.

 

Finally, on August 24, 2016, the acting FBI FOIA unit chief said he sees “no problem” with giving Hillary’s attorney a heads up before her records were posted to the Vault.

 

Other documents show that on August 5, 2016, Page, Strzok and FBI intelligence analyst Jonathan Moffa are notified by a FBI assistant general counsel from the national security law branch that additional 302’s were in need of processing:

 

Today [Redacted] brought over additional 302s from the WFO [Washington Field Office]. Are those supposed to go through the redaction process for production to DOJ on Monday? We’re trying to figure out what needs to be completed this weekend.

 

Page responds by writing to Strzok, Moffa and others that four FBI 302 report of interviews related to the Clinton “Midyear Exam” investigation had never even been written:

 

[Redacted] to the best of my knowledge, yes they will when Pete identified for [redacted] the DOJ edits that needed to be made to the 302s [redacted] discovered that there were four (I think) 302s that had never been written. What I don’t know is whose 302s they are but unless Pete or Jon are able to respond in short order, I would throw them on the pile for redactions. Thanks so much.

 

On August 24, 2016, Daily Beast reporter Shane Harris sent an inquiry to the FBI asking if Comey’s admission to Congress was accurate that Hillary’s lawyers at William & Connolly did not possess the security clearances needed to see and possess highly classified Hillary emails being stored at their law offices. Harris’s question set off a scramble at the top of the FBI all the way up to Comey over the next 28 hours, producing a seven-page (mostly redacted) email discussion, with Lisa Page concluding, “Could we say something more equivocal?”

 

In a September 1, 2016, email exchange, Page, Strzok, Office of Public Affairs official Michael Kortan and Special Agent Richard Quinn discuss an email from The Hill’s John Solomon, wherein Solomon forwarded them his draft article for Circa.com citing “government sources” detailing extensive evidence the FBI had collected, which showed Hillary Clinton “violated federal record-keeping laws” through her use of a private BlackBerry and server, despite the security and legal risks she was told they posed.  Solomon asked for any final “guidance” from the FBI before publishing. Page writes to Moffa, Strzok and a redacted FBI official, it was “pretty inaccurate,” but provided nothing to support her charge of its inaccuracy. Judicial Watch’s work on the Hillary Clinton email scandal is cited extensively in the column, and former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker was quoted as well, saying a special prosecutor was needed to look into Hillary’s use of the personal server.

 

On August 16, 2016, after Congress requested that the FBI supply additional copies of the binders of Clinton server-investigation materials, an unidentified FBI official complained to his colleagues of being understaffed and under supplied:

 

We literally do not have the office supplies to do this. Nor do I have the IAs [Investigative Assistants/Analysts] for assistance…. These binders are huge and each one took hours to compile.

 

+++

I am not trying to throw shade…. I just wish decisions could get made by considering resources.

 

I need people in [room] 7947 ready to go in the early AM and a charge card for Staples.”

Judicial Watch: New Strzok-Page Emails Reveal FBI Gave Special Treatment to Hillary Clinton’s Demands for Email Investigation Information Just Before Election

[Sara Carter (above) placed this Judicial Watch press release in her post less this last paragraph from the end:]

 

“These incredible documents show the leadership of the FBI rushed to give Hillary Clinton her FBI interview report shortly before the election,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And the documents also show the FBI failed to timely document interviews in the Clinton email ‘matter’ – further confirming the whole investigation was a joke. AG Barr can’t reopen the Clinton email investigation soon enough.”

Robert Mueller, The FBI And Obama’s Culture Of Corruption

 

By Kelleigh Nelson

June 4th, 2019

News With Views

 

Sometimes duplicity and treason are markers of the enemy, and sometimes, the failed intention of a masterful ally. But, nevertheless, as they burden you with a vexing brand of love, they become nothing more than the kiss of Judas, pressing a crown of thorns into your flesh.  —Addison Webster Moore

 

Americans cannot comprehend how their fellow countrymen could not love their country. But the left’s anti-Americanism is intrinsic to their entire worldview. Liberals promote the right of Islamic fanatics for the same reason they promote the rights of adulterers, pornographers, abortionists, criminals, and Communists. They instinctively root for anarchy against civilization. The inevitable logic of the liberal position is to be for treason. —Ann Coulter

 

And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep forever. —Thomas Jefferson

 

Incrimination through innuendo is the rule today as I listened to the liar of truth, Robert Mueller.  Truth is treason in the empire of lies and truth has now become the new hate speech.  Mueller’s final words stood the “rule of law” and presumption of innocence on their heads.

 

Apparently, Mueller wanted President Trump to appoint him FBI director again and he was rejected. The very next day, Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller to investigate the bogus Russian collusion.  Undoubtedly, President Trump knew that after 9/11, FBI Director Mueller purged the FBI training documents on Islamist terrorists and he acquiesced to the Muslim Brotherhood front group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

 

Robert Mueller had joined Trump’s National Golf Club in Virginia and seventeen years later, Mueller claimed the family was not making full use of the membership, and he wanted a portion of his $15K back. The Club justifiably refused. Unbelievably, this is included in footnote 529 on page 80-81 of the Mueller report.  No doubt Mueller had negative feelings for Donald Trump.

 

Deep State Revenge

 

After Attorney General (AG) Jeff Sessions recused himself from overseeing the Russian collusion debacle, Rod Rosenstein became the AG in charge of the investigation.  He disregarded the criminal conduct requirement and authorized a broad and vague counterintelligence probe, directing the special counsel to investigate “any links” between the Russian government and the Trump campaign.

 

Mueller passes Witch Hunt Torch to Nadler. Branco toon

 

This was unprecedented and gave a blank check to Mueller and his gang of Hillary supporting democrat attorneys the right to go after anyone or anything related to President Trump.

 

After the nearly two-year investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the Republican Deep State insider and hardcore Never Trumper, again put a knife in our President’s back.

 

Mueller’s actions made it clear he wanted to nail President Trump, he wanted him out of office, but there was no damning evidence.

 

Mueller’s eight-minute speech regarding the 448 page Two-Volume Special Counsel report contained these incriminating words, “And as set forth in the report after that investigation, if we had had confidence that the President clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.” (Volume II of the Mueller report was the obstruction-of-justice investigation regarding President Trump’s actions and conduct during the entire spurious Russian collusion inquiry.)

 

AG Barr had specifically asked Mueller, “Is your reason for not charging Trump anything to do with the Office of Legal Counsel guidelines?” Barr said that Mueller told him three times, “No, that has nothing to do with it.” Barr is on record on two occasions saying that Mueller told him three times the Office of Legal Counsel guidelines have nothing to do with his decision not to indict the president or not to link the president to crimes.

 

Democrat Alan Dershowitz spelled it out in his recent Hill article. “Mueller went beyond the conclusion of his report and gave a political gift to Congressional democrats who are seeking to institute impeachment proceedings against President Trump. By implying that President Trump might have committed obstruction of justice, Mueller effectively invited Democrats to institute impeachment proceedings.”

 

Mueller failed to investigate the bogus dossier, FISA abuse, Obama’s spying on the Trump campaign, or the players involved. The intelligence community has proven themselves to be a venomous nest of traitorous vipers.

 

Spying and FISA Abuse

 

John Solomon reported over a year ago that spying on the Trump campaign occurred earlier than the summer of 2016.  “It originated earlier, 1,700 miles away in London, when foreign figures contacted Trump campaign advisers and provided the FBI with hearsay allegations of Trump-Russia collusion, bureau documents and interviews of government insiders. These contacts in spring 2016, some from trusted intelligence sources, others from Hillary Clinton supporters, occurred well before FBI headquarters authorized an official counterintelligence investigation on July 31, 2016.”

 

Rep. Mark Meadows, (R-NC) said, “This new information begs the questions: Who were the informants working for, who were they reporting to and why has the DOJ and FBI gone to such great lengths to hide these contacts?”

 

Former Deputy Assistant AG Victoria Toensing and her husband, former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Joe diGenova, were on Hannity on May 31st, along with a full panel of guests. Toensing said that there is evidence the Obama administration FISA abuse started as early as 2012, and the abuse goes all the way to the top.

 

Obama’s Illegal Surveillance

 

The Obama White House used the most sensitive intrusive surveillance systems of the NSA to spy on Americans.  A ruling by FISA Court Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer finds that 85 percent of NSA database requests under FISA section 702 authority at the DOJ were illegal or noncompliant. Surveillance systems, including PRISM, were spying on thousands of Americans, including Donald Trump and those around him. (United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review Amicus Brief)  Moreover, Collyer finds that the DOJ showed an appalling “lack of institutional candor.”

 

In April 2017, Judge Collyer found that unwarranted and illegal surveillance of American citizens was done by the highest reaches of the Obama Administration for at least 4 years, starting in 2012. (Secret court rebukes NSA for 5-year illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens – MAY 26, 2017).  Moreover, James Comey authorized and allowed for limitless, continuous, unlawful, and warrantless access by three Federal contractors. (Institutional Lack of Candor – FISA Violations January 24, 2018).  Link

 

Judge Collyer found that its targets were American citizens and prominent Republicans and the abuse was continuous, frequently entering the same person’s name over a protracted period of time.

 

Collyer ruled that this information was shared and disseminated unlawfully to John Brennan and James Clapper. Brennan admitted that the CIA had hacked into the Senate Intelligence Committee’s computers. (Brennan, Clapper, and Comey were instrumental in infecting the DOJ and FBI with the Steele Dossier.)

 

Furthermore, information was disseminated within the Obama administration in violation of the 4th amendment, all under the authorization of James Comey. He knew it was illegal and he should be indicted for these and other crimes.

 

When they got caught, they fought back with treason by continuing to usurp the Constitution. Undermining the incoming President with the Russia hoax, trying to cover up their litany of crimes, and staging an attempted coup against Donald Trump.

They didn’t get away with it.

 

Admiral Mike Rogers

 

In the spring of 2016, the Director of the NSA, Admiral, discovered that the NSA’s comprehensive database collecting all electronic communications in the United States was being searched by unauthorized FBI “contractors” and he moved to “cut off that access.” Link

 

If Admiral Mike Rogers hadn’t put a stop to the misuse of the NSA, none of this would have come to light. Former assistant Attorney General, John Carlin, tried to have Rogers fired for fear that the skullduggery would be exposed further, but he failed. Rogers visited candidate Trump shortly after his discovery to warn him that Trump Tower was “wiretapped.”

 

Wray-FBI, Haspel-CIA & Coats-Dir. 0f National Intelligence

 

Stonewalling Classified Documents

 

In a Memorial Day radio interview, Joe diGenova told that FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Gina Haspel, and Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats have been stonewalling the release of classified documents to AG Barr prior to the President’s declassification. Take note that Dan Coats is a former Senator from Indiana and a close friend of VP Mike Pence who was in charge of the Trump transition team and recommended Coats.

 

AG Barr was fed up trying to get classified documents, so he went to the President and told him he could not get the answers the President requested.  Twenty-four hours later, the President declassified the documents.  The White House also instructed several agencies to cooperate with Barr’s inquiry, including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Defense Department, the State Department, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

 

The intelligence community is in full resistance to disclosing what they did during the campaign.  There’s a full-scale war between AG Barr and another FBI director who thinks he’s James Comey.  DiGenova said that Christopher Wray is an “unmitigated disaster,” and we are “watching the quintessential Washington power battle.”  Devvy Kidd’s latest article on Wray fully agrees with diGenova.

 

DiGenova believes the Obama administration spying, exposed by Judge Rosemary Collyer, is a bigger scandal than the FBI’s Russian collusion coup.  Shortly after the 2012 election, the Obama administration began their illegal accessing of the National Security Agency (NSA) database via 702 queries.  And now, the FBI and CIA fear that since these disclosures have become publicly known, their powers may be cut back, FISA may be restricted and some additional people may go to prison.

 

AG Barr’s Investigators

 

Talk about the foxes in the hen house!  CIA Director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and FBI Director Chris Wray are all participating in the investigation, which Barr first announced publicly during a congressional hearing last month.

 

Dan Coats is a long-time establishment creature having served as an Indiana Congressman and Senator for a total of sixteen years.

 

FBI Director Chris Wray said that he does not consider court-approved FBI surveillance to be “spying” and said he has no evidence the FBI illegally monitored Trump’s campaign.  This alone should worry AG William Barr.

 

According to Sam Faddis, former CIA Ops officer, and author of Beyond Repair: The Decline and Fall of the CIA, Trump’s CIA director, Gina Haspel, is a protégée of John Brennan. She was at his right hand during all the critical junctures. Haspel was the CIA’s London Section Chief during the time the Deep State was working with former MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, and couldn’t possibly have been in the dark about the attempt to subvert the election/presidency of Donald Trump.  Although Trump called for the revocation of John Brennan’s secret security clearance, the Deep State has made sure that this has NOT happened as yet.  Most likely, they’re waiting out his presidency to return to “business as usual.”  Link

 

Remember John Huber, the missing appointee by Jeff Sessions?  Fourteen months ago AG Sessions had asked Huber to look into issues related to the sale of Uranium One and allegations that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had been improperly involved in the process, as well as broader claims of corruption at the Clinton Foundation.  In a recent interview on CBS, Mr. Barr seemed to suggest that what evidence Huber found, if any, may soon be revealed.  Barr also revealed that Inspector General Horowitz and John Durham have taken over most of Huber’s responsibilities.

 

One wonders with this cast of characters if we’ll ever see true justice.

 

Conclusion

 

As Gregg Jarrett stated on Fox News, Mueller’s actions were not only noxious, but patently unfair to Trump.  The special counsel publicly besmirched the president with tales of suspicious behavior and turned our justice system on its head.

 

Everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence.  It is the bedrock on which justice is built.  Throughout his career, there is proof this has never registered with Robert Mueller. Link and Link

 

Lindsey Graham, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee needs to subpoena Robert Mueller.  He should have staff lawyers ready to question him, just like the House committee wanted to do with Attorney General William Barr.

Intro to JW, Soros & U.S. Taxpayers


John R. Houk

© December 5, 2018

If you are a Conservative, you probably have heard of George Soros. He is a nefarious individual who actually has a past connected to the Nazi regime of Germany’s Adolf Hitler.

 

Judicial Watch has put together an exposé of Soros showing that his voluminous Left-Wing Globalist organizations are receiving taxpayer supported funding.

 

This man’s agenda is to destroy and transform America which should sound familiar to Barack Hussein Obama’s 2008 election night promise to his cadres:

 

VIDEO: Obama promised to transform America.

 

Those Obama words is one reason Conservatives believed he was a puppet of the /Soros agenda.

 

Let’s look at a little Soros history for context today:

 

George Soros was born to Tividar and Erzebat Schwartz, non-practicing Jews, in Budapest, Hungary on August 12, 1930. Tivadar was an attorney by profession, but the consuming passion of his life was the promotion of Esperanto—an artificial, “universal” language created during the 1880s in hopes that people worldwide might be persuaded to drop their native tongues and speak Esperanto instead—thereby, in theory at least, minimizing their nationalist impulses while advancing intercultural harmony. In 1936, Tivadar changed his family surname to Soros—a future-tense Esperanto verb meaning “will soar.”13

 

When the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, Tivadar decided to split up his family so as to minimize the chance that all its members would be killed together. For each of them—his wife and two sons he purchased forged papers identifying them as Christians; paid government officials to conceal his family’s Jewish heritage from the German and Hungarian fascists; and bribed Gentile families to take them into their homes. As for George in particular, the father paid a Hungarian government official named Baumbach to claim George as his Christian godson, “Sandor Kiss,” and to let the boy live with him in Budapest. One of Baumbach’s duties was to deliver deportation notices to Hungary’s Jews, confiscating their property and turning it over to Germany. Young George Soros sometimes accompanied the official on his rounds.14 

 

Soros today recalls the German occupation of Hungary as “probably the happiest year of my life.” “For me,” he elaborates, “it was a very positive experience. …

 

In 1947 the Soros family relocated from Hungary to England, where George attended the London School of Economics (LSE). There, he was exposed to the works of the Viennese-born philosopher Karl Popper, who taught at LSE and whom Soros would later call his “spiritual mentor.”17 Though Soros never studied directly under Popper, he read the latter’s works and submitted some essays to him for review and comment. Most notably, Popper’s 1945 book The Open Society and Its Enemies introduced Soros to the concept of an “open society,” a theme that would play a central role in Soros’s thought and activities for the rest of his life.18

 

… Popper readily embraced this concept and expanded upon it. In his view, the open society was a place that permitted its citizens the right to criticize and change its institutions as they saw fit; he rejected the imposed intellectual conformity, central planning, and historical determinism of Marxist doctrine.20 By Popper’s reckoning, a society was “closed”—and thus undesirable—if it assumed that it was in any way superior to other societies. Likewise, any belief system or individual claiming to be in possession of “ultimate truth” was an “enemy” of the open society as well. Popper viewed all knowledge as conjectural rather than certain, as evolving rather than fixed.

 

Thus, by logical extension, Popper did not share the American founders’ confident assertion that certain truths were “self-evident,” and that certain rights—such as the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” as referenced in the Declaration of Independence—were “unalienable” and thus not subject to doubt, because they had been granted to mankind by the ultimate authority, the “Creator.”21 We shall see that George Soros, as he grew to maturity, would likewise reject the founders’ premise. Indeed Soros would harbor great disdain for modern-day American political figures who displayed unshakable confidence in their own culture’s nobility, and who embraced the tenets of the Declaration and the U.S. Constitution as timeless, immutable truths. To Soros, “Popper’s greatest contribution to philosophy” was his teaching that “the ultimate truth remains permanently beyond our reach.”22

Conservapedia is correctly hostile toward Soros:

 

George Soros (born August 12, 1930) is an anti-Semitic[2] atheist,[1] international financier and con artist who bankrolled the presidential campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, among other left-wing causes.[3] He is officially the 190th richest person on the planet,[4] though he transferred $18 billion of his wealth to his organizations, making his official wealth appear smaller.[5] He manages the funds of many other of the world’s richest people. Soros’ organization, the Open Society Foundations, is responsible for financing postmodernist, Neo-Marxist organizations for his personal gain. As Snopes.com noted,[6] it devotes $2.6 billion to advance left-wing SJW priorities which in reality promote feminismIslam, illegal drugsprostitution, and homosexuality. He has attacked Jews, falsely claiming they cause anti-Semitism.[7]

 

Soros is a naturalized American citizen, born in Hungary where he worked for the Nazis as a teenager, fingering and looting his compatriot Jews.[8] He is a leftist and elitist whose current net worth is estimated to be about $8 billion, not including the $18 billion of his wealth that he transferred to his organizations in 2017.[5] He is considered by many to be a modern robber baron.[9] Calls for his arrest due to currency manipulation and other crimes have reverberated around the world.[10]

 

In 1992, Soros earned the title, “the man who broke the Bank of England”,[11] for shorting the British Pound. …

 

 

Early life

 

Soros was born August 12, 1930, in Budapest, Hungary. His parents were Elizabeth and Tivadar Soros. Tivadar, who sometimes went by Teodoro Ŝvarc,[15] was an active Esperantist. George Soros grew up learning Esperanto from his father.[16][17]

 

George Soros’ birth name was György Schwartz, his family name was changed in 1936 from Schwartz to Soros to avoid antisemitism. The name “Soros” is itself derived from an esperanto word “Sori“, which means “To Soar”.[18] George Soros later said that he “grew up in a Jewish, anti-semitic home,” and that his parents were “uncomfortable with their religious roots.”[19] Soros is an atheist.[20]

JW Special Report: Government Funding of Soros Foundations

 

Email sent by Carter L. Clews, Director of Communications

Sent Dec 3, 2018, 1:47 PM

Via Judicial Watch

 

“Why are U.S. taxpayers funding billionaire ‘philanthropist’ George Soros and his highly politicized Open Society Foundations?” – Judicial Watch Special Report

 

Dear Editor/Broadcaster,

I urge you to take a few minutes to read the stunning Judicial Watch Special Report on the United States government funding of George Soros’ radical leftist agenda worldwide.

As the Special Report, penned by JW Director of Investigations and Research Chris Farrell, painstakingly documents, Soros, his Open Society Foundations, and their affiliates are promoting and advancing:

 

“… a radical, progressive agenda that seeks to destabilize legitimate governments, erase national borders and identities, target conservative politicians, finance civil unrest, subvert institutions of higher education, and orchestrate refugee crises for political gain.”

 

The Special Report fully documents the hundreds of millions of dollars Soros-affiliated organizations have received from the United States government to implement their radical agenda.

And, should anyone harbor any doubts as to the authenticity of the Report, I invite them to examine the 154 meticulous footnotes – most with clickable hyperlinks.

Please set aside the time to peruse this important document.

And then, please alert your readers and viewers as to how the U.S. government is spending their tax dollars to promote the Soros agenda.

Sincerely,

Carter L. Clews
Director of Communications

PS: Any who still doubt illegal alien caravan-related activities funded by the Open Society Foundations should direct their attention to pages 19 – 23.

A Judicial Watch Special Report:

 

The Financial and Staffing Nexus Between the Open Society Foundations and the United States Government

 

Advancing a Radical Leftist Agenda at U.S. Taxpayer Expense

 

November 30, 2018

 

Introduction

 

Judicial Watch promotes transparency, integrity and accountability in government, politics and the law. We carry out our mission through investigations, research, litigation and public education. As part of our educational activities we produce Special Reports on important public policy matters in order to illuminate the operations of government in a way that informs the public and holds our trusted public servants accountable.

 

This Special Report describes the activities of billionaire philanthropist George Soros and his Open Society Foundations (OSF), which are partially financed by U.S. taxpayers. Soros, his foundation and their affiliates promote and advance a radical, progressive agenda that seeks to destabilize legitimate governments, erase national borders and identities, target conservative politicians, finance civil unrest, subvert institutions of higher education, and orchestrate refugee crises for political gain. The Soros network is engaged in an active and ongoing effort to affect politics, economics, and societies in Europe (Albania, Macedonia, Romania, Hungary), Latin America (Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico), and across the globe. Judicial Watch has successfully investigated and litigated to document the paper trail left by the OSF network as it operates, at taxpayer expense, to subvert and manipulate the sovereignty of constitutional republics and allies of the United States.

 

The Soros operations are highly sophisticated and multi-faceted, working across academia; the courts; labor and agriculture; “social justice” organizations; religious associations; and, of course, political groups. OSF operations also utilize U.S.-based non- profit organizations to further their agenda. Key personnel in the Soros/OSF network (and their affiliates) are former U.S. government officials capable of leveraging their government status and access to benefit the OSF’s progressive goals.

 

Judicial Watch will continue to investigate and litigate to obtain evidence that we will analyze as we pursue additional lines of inquiry concerning Soros and the Open Society Foundations around the world and, in particular, the United States.

 

Thomas Fitton President Washington, DC

 

Background and Context

 

The Open Society Foundations’ mission is to: “… work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people.”1

 

The OSF, and its subsidiaries and affiliates, are subsidized with U.S. taxpayer money, totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. Senior U.S. government officials have leveraged their positions for post-government employment with OSF programs, sometimes seeking taxpayer funding for the very same specialties, functions and regions that involved their government employment.

 

It is important to contextualize the operations and financing of the Open Society Foundations. A year ago, Soros took dramatic action to step up his leftist political activities. As reported by the Wall Street Journal on October 17, 2017, Soros transferred $18 billion to his Open Society Foundation:

 

“The pioneer of hedge-fund investing has transferred the bulk of his wealth to Open Society Foundations”

 

***

 

“Open Society today has a broad mandate driven largely by its founder’s values. It operates through a network of more than 40 foundations and offices in countries from Afghanistan to South Africa.

 

Mr. Soros has urged developed countries in Europe and elsewhere to share the burden of increased migration from conflict-ridden countries [conflict, it appears, Soros groups help foment]. Anti- Soros politicians in Macedonia, Poland and some other European countries have attacked foreign-funded groups, including Open Society, for what they see as outside interference in their affairs.”2

 

Three years before this massive transfer of wealth to the Open Society Foundation, Inside Philanthropy reported:3

 

“The Open Society Foundations is bigger than you think. In fact, it may be the largest philanthropic organization ever built, with branches in 37 countries.  While the Gates Foundation spends more money, OSF has a larger footprint worldwide thanks to its many local offices, including throughout Africa.  OSF’s budget will be around $930 million this year—which is substantially more than Ford’s [Foundation] total grantmaking.”

 

One might reasonably wonder why U.S. taxpayers would be asked to fund the activities of such a wealthy, sophisticated, highly politicized, “philanthropic” organization.

 

In 2018, OSF projected expending $537,000,000 in grants and program funding throughout the world.4 The 2018 OSF budget exceeds $1 billion. While the OSF’s self- professed goals of strengthening the rule of law, supporting democratically elected governments, promoting fairness in political, legal, and economic systems, and safeguarding fundamental rights may seem innocuous – or even noble – the reality is far different. Soros promotes a radical left agenda. In the United States, this has included:

 

  • Promoting an open border with Mexico and fighting immigration enforcement efforts;5

 

  • Fomenting racial disharmony by funding anti-capitalist racialist organizations;6

 

  • Financing the Black Lives Matter movement and other organizations involved in the riots in Ferguson, Missouri;7

 

  • Weakening the integrity of our electoral systems;8

 

  • Promoting taxpayer funded abortion-on-demand;9

 

  • Advocating a government-run health care system;10

 

  • Opposing U.S. counterterrorism efforts;11

 

  • Promoting dubious transnational climate change agreements that threaten American sovereignty;12 and,

 

  • Working to promote gun control and erode Second Amendment protections.13

 

The Soros foundations funded the liberal think tank Center for American Progress (CAP) (founded by former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, who remains on the CAP Board of Directors14), and the related 501c(4) CAP Action Fund to the sum of $1.835 million dollars in 2016 and 2017.15 OSF program strategy documents describe CAP as an “anchor” grantee of the organization.16 The current President of CAP, Neera Tanden, was Policy Director of Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and domestic policy director for the Obama campaign. Additional CAP Board members include Tom Steyer and Sen. Tom Daschle.17

 

Soros foundations also funded the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and its related entities, and Democratic voter turnout initiatives. In 2003, Soros described defeating President George W. Bush as, “the central focus of my life,” and donated more than $15 million to anti-Bush organizations and efforts.18 At the January 2018 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Soros attacked President Trump and described him as a “danger to the world.”19

 

Similarly, in Europe, Soros and his foundations have sought to erase national borders and identities,20 targeted conservative politicians,21 financed civil unrest,22 infiltrated institutions of higher education,23 and orchestrated a massive refugee crisis24 that will leave the continent forever changed.25

 

Judicial Watch has filed four lawsuits in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia directly related to uncovering the facts about the global Soros-funded network of left-wing activist groups – what Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban calls Soros’ “Mercenary Army”26 – organized in part through the Soros Open Society Foundation and his East West Management Institute. The documents uncovered by Judicial Watch through a series of lawsuits reveal that the Obama administration turned over key State Department activities to George Soros’ OSF. Judicial Watch reporting suggests the Deep State continues to be aligned with Soros as career and holdover State Department officials in countries such as Albania, Colombia, Guatemala, Macedonia and Romania help OSF push its radical agenda.
