FBI/Deep State Caught Hiding “Political Embarrassment” Instead Of Telling The Truth On Trump/Russia Docs

It was a full-on cover-up intended to hide the FBI’s direct culpability in pushing and enabling the fake Trump/Russia collusion narrative that had ‘national security’ used as justification for keeping the facts from Congress and the American people so that they could continue to try and damage the Trump presidency and protect the DNC and the Clintons. It is a classic example of Deep State manipulations—and they’ve now been caught red-handed.

FBI’s smoking gun: Redactions protected political embarrassment, not ‘national security’

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI have tried to thwart President Trump on releasing the evidence, suggesting it will harm national security, make allies less willing to cooperate, or even leave him vulnerable to accusations that he is trying to obstruct the end of the Russia probe.

Before you judge the DOJ’s and FBI’s arguments — which are similar to those offered to stop the release of information in other major episodes of American history, from the Bay of Pigs to 9/11 — consider Footnote 43 on Page 57 of Chapter 3 of the House Intelligence Committee’s report earlier this year on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Until this past week, the footnote really had garnered no public intrigue, in part because the U.S. intelligence community blacked out the vast majority of its verbiage in the name of national security before the report was made public.

From the heavy redactions, all one could tell is that FBI general counsel James Baker met with an unnamed person who provided some information in September 2016 about Russia, email hacking and a possible link to the Trump campaign.

Not a reporter or policymaker would have batted an eyelash over such a revelation.

Then, last Wednesday, I broke the story that Baker admitted to Congress in an unclassified setting — repeat, in an unclassified setting — that he had met with a top lawyer at the firm representing the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and received allegations from that lawyer about Russia, Trump and possible hacking.

It was the same DNC, along with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, that funded the unverified, salacious dossier by a British intel operative, Christopher Steele, that became a central piece of evidence used to justify the FBI surveillance of the Trump campaign in the final days of the election.

And it was the same law firm that made the payments for the dossier research so those could be disguised in campaign spending reports to avoid the disclosure of the actual beneficiaries of the research, which were Clinton and the DNC.

And it was, it turns out, the same meeting that was so heavily censored by the intel agencies from Footnote 43 in the House report — treated, in other words, as some big national security secret.

What makes this so extraordinary is that the FBI and the DOJ would have Americans believe that a contact with a lawyer for a political party during the middle of the election is somehow a matter of national security that should be hidden from the public.

Well, that argument was proven to be a lie by the very way the interview with Baker played out last Wednesday on Capitol Hill. Baker was not interviewed in a “SCIF” — a “sensitive compartmented information facility” routinely used to discuss super-secret, highly sensitive information. There was no claim of classification over any information he provided Congress that day.

So we can now say with some authority that the earlier redaction in Footnote 43 was done in the name of a national security concern that did not exist.

That means the redaction of Footnote 43 had more to do with political embarrassment than with national security. And that should concern us all.

The Founding Fathers intended government to be open and transparent except when national security was at risk. They never intended national security to be used to hide old-fashioned politics.

So, Mr. President, when you weigh those DOJ/FBI arguments against declassification, please don’t forget the ruse of the redaction that was Footnote 43.


 

You Don’t Think The Clintons Played A Part In The Kavanaugh Attacks? Check Out This Memo From 1998…

Bill and Hillary Clinton despise Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Anyone who doubts that need only read the following memo by Brett Kavanaugh regarding Bill Clinton’s actions against a young woman who was at the time nearly the same age as Clinton’s own daughter, as well as the attempted coverup, misuse of federal agencies, etc.

The Clintons don’t forget. Ever. And how just like the Clintons to help orchestrate a character smear against Judge Kavanaugh for things that never happened because Mr. Kavanaugh was in 1998 adamant that then-President Clinton answer for things that actually did take place.

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Hires Former Clinton Spokesman Lanny Davis As Anti-Trump Sharks Smell Blood

It was a hiring the Establishment Media continues to ignore – at least the implications of how it links the former personal attorney of the President of the United States with a longtime Clinton associate and spokesman. The Clinton Machine is desperate to protect itself and in order to do so must destroy Donald Trump.

Enter Lanny Davis.

Mr. Davis has long been among the legion of operatives known whose job it was/is to put out fires that might singe the Clintons while fanning the flames of the fires that might harm the Clintons’ many enemies. The fact Michael Cohen, a man whose private written and taped correspondence records with Donald Trump (and others) was swept up by the very long arm of the Robert Mueller investigation that was itself formed to take down the Trump White House, is now working shoulder-to-shoulder with a Clinton fix-it figure has to have the president and those few around him in DC who he can trust, very concerned.

That hiring by Mr. Cohen means that the Clinton Machine (in conjunction with the multitude of Obama Deep State appointees) is directly overseeing that attack against Donald Trump. It is the most visible sign yet of an outright war between Trump, his tens of millions of supporters, and the globalist regime that has nearly taken over every aspect of U.S. government and media.


 

A Must-Read Swamp Road Map Linking Clintons,Comey,Rosenstein, Lerner, Mueller, Kerry, Obama, AND PUTIN’S RUSSIA…

If you read anything this week, this is it. The dots are connected and the motivation for a massive federal government coverup made clear. Even for those who’ve been paying attention, it’s gonna blow your mind.

READ. SHARE. EDUCATE.

H/T: Common Sense Evaluation:

———–

Guess who was transferred into the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?
Lois Lerner.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?
None other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod Rosenstein.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?
I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances, Robert Mueller.

What do all four casting characters have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right?

Ok, let’s chalk the last one up to mere chance.

Let’s fast forward to 2009.

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the Hillary.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to none other than, the Russians.

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn. The American people got absolutely nothing out of it.

However, prior to the sales approval, none other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid $500k for a one-hour speech then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

OK, no big deal, right?

Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.

Guess who was the FBI Director during this timeframe?
Yep, Robert Mueller.

He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland.
None other than, yup, Rod Rosenstein.

Guess what happened to the informant?
The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?
145 million dollars in “donations” made their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?
None other than, you got it. Lois Lerner.

OK, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here, right?

Let’s fast forward to 2015.

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

Sparing you the State Departments cover-up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

Now, this is amazing. Guess who became FBI Director in 2013?
Guess who secured 17 no-bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six-million-dollar thank you present when he departed his employer.

None other than our pal, James Comey.

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

Now he, of course, is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation” (after, of course, his FBI Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and, of course, exonerates her).

Nope couldn’t find any crimes there.

Can you guess what happened next?
In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton laughs as she celebrates with her husband, former President Bill Clinton at her caucus night rally in Des Moines, Iowa February 1, 2016. REUTERS/Adrees Latif

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey is, James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th of 2016 and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

Can you see the pattern?
It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General, Comey gets fired based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

FISA abuse, political espionage…. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others were deeply involved in it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.

They are like battery acid. They corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Let us not forget that Comey’s brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

FBI Corruption… Decades in a Nutshell


 

BREAKING: New Docs Prove Obama Trump Surveillance Program Was Illegal Operation From The Very Beginning

Kudos to Mollie Hemingway who has been working this story for months. Her report out today further proves what so many suspected – Barack Obama had weaponized the surveillance powers of the U.S. government in an attempt to interfere with the 2016 Election and then later damage the incoming president from the opposition party. It’s the single greatest political scandal in American history.

Via The Federalist:

Confirmed: DOJ Used Materially False Information To Secure Wiretaps On Trump Associate

Newly released documents confirm House and Senate investigators’ claims that the Department of Justice and FBI used materially false and misleading information to secure wiretaps on Carter Page, a former volunteer foreign policy advisor to President Trump. The highly redacted documents released in response to Freedom of Information Act requests show how the FBI was able to convince the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to surveil the Naval Academy graduate and energy consultant for a year of his life.

The wiretap was applied for and granted in October 2016, shortly before the end of the presidential campaign. Approved applications last for 90 days. The Department of Justice requested and received three renewals, for a total of one year of surveillance. Despite claiming to the court in 2016 that “the FBI believes that Page has been collaborating and conspiring with the Russian Government,” the government has yet to charge Page with breaking any of the serious laws it alleges he knowingly transgressed.

Here is what the highly redacted FISA applications show us thus far.

The Dossier Provided an Essential Part Of Application.

The Dossier Was Not Verified

The Applications Employed Circular Reporting

Cites Steele’s Credibility, Despite Overwhelming Evidence To Doubt It

The Applications Made Materially False Claims

The True Funding Of Dossier Was Oddly Obscured

————–

There is simply no way such an operation against a then-presidential nominee, (and now President of the United States) was not overseen/approved at the highest levels of the Obama White House up to and including, Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett. The Obama administration was working hand-in-hand/colluding with the Clinton campaign to first manipulate the 2016 Election and then to try and overthrow a duly elected president. In other countries such abusive/treasonous behavior gets people imprisoned – or worse. In the U.S. it gets the perpetrators of the crimes multi-million dollar media contracts. To date, Barack Obama is on course to earn nearly $100 million dollars over the next five years.

Wonder if he intends to pay his fair share?


 

Why Are The Media, Democrats, DOJ, FBI. Etc., Ignoring The $400 MILLION Russian Operatives Sent To The Clintons?

Clinton-Russia collusion is real, it is significant, and it should be investigated – and they all know it.

That is why so many of the pro-Clinton/pro-Obama cabal are out in force today following the Trump-Putin summit. Mr. Putin reminded them he knows the truth and in doing so also reminded them of their active participation in a global pay-to-play coverup the likes of which America has never seen.


 

OF COURSE: Judge Who Ruled Against Trump/Hannity/Cohen Officiated The 2013 George Soros Wedding

Judge Kimba Wood first came to the court as a Ronald Reagan appointee way back when. Then she became very cozy with the Clintons and was at one point a top Clinton choice to be Attorney General. Her ties to the far-left have continued so it was no surprise when she was hand-picked by globalist billionaire George Soros, then 83 years of age, to officiate his 2013 marriage.

Via The New York Post from 2013:

Soros and Bolton, a health care consultant, will exchange vows in a small ceremony on Saturday morning at the Bedford, New York estate, which Soros bought in 2003 from “Jurassic Park” author Michael Crichton.
Kimba Wood, a federal judge, will perform the non-denominational ceremony, which will be attended by members of the couple’s families, including his five children, a source familiar with the arrangements told Reuters.

————

Soros is now nearly 88 years old. Still alive. Still meddling. Still pulling so many strings…


 

Going After Obama Is The Red Line The FBI, CIA, NSA, Media, Etc., Will Not Cross…

The Clintons’ survival is rooted these days on their ability to convince anyone and everyone thinking of linking them to a multitude of crimes from illegal email servers to pay-for-play Clinton Foundation money laundering schemes, that should they go down, so too will Barack Obama.

He is the red line of which those in power at the highest levels of government, the courts, and the Establishment Media, will not cross…

“Protect Obama.” That is a phrase uttered repeatedly before, during, and now more than a year after, his presidency. Billions were invested in Mr. Obama’s creation. Potential trillions have since been built upon the foundation that is his ongoing legacy – a legacy that is to culminate in the breaking apart of the traditional United States to be replaced by something far-far different.

Case in point. On February 7th Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, went public with stunning evidence of Mr. Obama’s first-hand complicity in both colluding with, and obstructing, the 2016 investigation in Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private server that many have since indicated was meant to hide evidence of the Clintons’ multi-national pay-to-play shakedowns that took place during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as head of the Obama State Department.

The information provided by Senator Johnson outline rampant FBI abuses, confirm former FBI Director James Comey’s likely cover-up complicity, and exposed the lie Mr. Obama told when he stated he had not, and would not, ever attempt to politically influence an ongoing law enforcement investigation.

It was the kind of revelation that should have generated wall-to-wall media coverage It didn’t. In fact, there was NO television news coverage of it outside of Fox News. None of the networks made mention of it. Nor did CNN or MSNBC.

“We don’t report it – it didn’t happen.” That’s the mantra of the Establishment Media and it has never been used it so consistently as when it’s been done to protect Barack Obama. It allowed him to be elected, re-elected, and to stay out of prison.

Instead, this same Establishment Media continues to push the false narrative that Mr. Obama’s eight years in the White House represent a “scandal-free” presidency when in fact it has been proven time and time again to be among the most scandal-ridden administrations in history.

Ah, but when you are involved in the re-writing of history, the false representation of the present, so that you might have a seat at the table of the powerful in the future, why bother with facts, or truth, or reality?

Barack Obama never did – and look where it got him.

Bill and Hillary and their cadre of schemers know this. They are banking on it – to the tune of tens and tens of millions of dollars.

One filthy hand washing the other.

BREAKING: Clintons, DNC, FBI, & Media All Found Colluding With Russia Against Trump

Hold tight because information is coming fast and furious now.

Multiple media outlets now reporting that the Hillary Clinton campaign coordinated with Fusion GPS, a D.C. based political opo research firm, to create and then distribute the infamous “Trump dossier” that attempted to spread salacious fabrications against Donald Trump and his campaign. This false dossier was then used to wage the equally false Trump-Russia investigation that is still ongoing in Congress.

Whispers indicate many high-placed figures in the Establishment Media already knew this. Not only did they refuse to report on it, but they knowingly continued reporting on the false premise of the Trump-Russia investigation.

Check out this excerpt from the SEATTLE TIMES:

Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington, D.C., firm, to conduct the research. Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community.

Elias and his law firm, Seattle-based Perkins Coie, retained the firm in April 2016 on behalf of the Clinton campaign and the DNC. Before that agreement, Fusion GPS’ research into Trump was funded by a still unknown Republican client during the GOP primary.

 The Clinton campaign and the DNC, through the law firm, continued to fund Fusion GPS’ research through the end of October 2016, days before Election Day.
The Clinton campaign paid Perkins Coie $5.6 million in legal fees from June 2015 to December 2016, according to campaign-finance records, and the DNC paid the firm $3.6 million in “legal and compliance consulting’’ since Nov. 2015 — though it’s impossible to tell how much of that work was for other legal matters and how much of it related to Fusion GPS.

After the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence, but the bureau pulled out of -the arrangement after Steele was publicly identified.

The New York Post put it this way:

The explosive report in the Washington Post goes a long way to explaining how the dossier was so widely spread among political reporters during the election. The Clinton camp must have passed it out like Halloween candy to its media handmaidens.

The Post report provides possible answers to other questions, too. Because Clinton’s team paid for the dossier, it’s likely that she gave it to the FBI, where James Comey planned to hire the former British agent who had compiled it to keep digging dirt on Trump.

The finding also raises the possibility that the dossier is what led the Obama White House to snoop on members of Trump’s team, and leak the “unmasked” names to the anti-Trump media in a bid to help Clinton.

In short, we now have compelling evidence that the dossier was the largest and dirtiest dirty trick of the 2016 campaign. And Clinton, who has played the victim card ever since her loss, was behind it the whole time.

—————–

The Deep State war against POTUS Trump is real. The above makes that all too clear. The false narrative was being actively promoted by U.S. Intelligence, the Establishment Media, and the Establishment political class in this country – all in an effort to try and destroy the first true political outsider to win the White House in generations. When you include the Clinton-Russia uranium deal what we have here is the single greatest political scandal in American history.

The Establishment will try and minimize these shocking revelations. DON’T ALLOW THEM TO DO THAT.

Share. Educate. Share some more.

You are the TRUE resistance – and we are at war.

PedoWood Braces For Weinstein Backlash As More Wonder If PizzaGate Was Real…

The now”breaking” Harvey Weinstein story has been around for decades. His abusive behavior, his penchant for singling out and intimidating up-and-coming talent, his threats, intimidations, payoffs, it has long been a running inside joke among the Hollywood elite.

So why now?

And what of the longstanding financial links between Mr. Weinstein and Washington D.C.? Some readers might recall the shocking claims of child sex trafficking abuses that are said to be rampant among the globalist elites, stretching from private clubs in London, to high-rise New York, and yes, the scripted caverns of PedoWood and all points between.

Mr. Weinstein bounced around often from LA to New York to London, Italy, Germany, and Paris, among other places. He has longstanding connections to China’s ruling class, billionaire Saudi investors, and of course, U.S. politicians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. (Mr. Obama even sent his young daughter to intern with the Weinstein company)

Weinstein was among Hollywood’s most fanatical fundraisers for Democrat/globalist causes each and every election cycle for the past twenty years. Whispers of him forcing himself upon young starlets and then demanding they remember to donate to the Democrat cause are legion. Everyone who was anyone knew.

They didn’t care.

Why is that? Could it be that Harvey was merely a more robust example of what is considered everyday life among his fellow elites? That the human carnage that takes place regularly in Hollywood is merely an extension of the very same carnage taking place in D.C. and elsewhere?

Last summer during the heated fray of a presidential election an odd and disturbing story began to circulate about  Hillary Clinton’s then-campaign chair and longtime D.C. operative, John Podesta, and Mr. Podesta’s rumored links to child sex trafficking. It quickly became known as “PizzaGate” named so due to speculation of a D.C. pizza parlor being used as one of the locations for any number of horrific acts against carried out in secret against children. The Mainstream Media attacked the claims in force. It was in fact a remarkably unified effort – a circling of the media wagons if you will.

It didn’t help those who wanted to squash the rumors when video of a woman associated with Mr. Podesta was uncovered showing her performing what appeared to be a Satanic ritual. Yes, the story really did get that bizarre and yet one had to remind themselves that what they were seeing was real. John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair and a man who has walked among the D.C. elite for many-many years, was involved in an act known as “Spirit Cooking” – a  ritual involving blood, semen, and breast milk.

"Spirit Cooking": Clinton Campaign Chairman Practices Bizarre Occult Ritual

And let’s not forget the sexting scandal of Anthony Weiner, a former high-ranking congressman and husband to Hillary Clinton’s longtime #2. (who is herself the daughter of Muslim activists) One of the more disturbing imgages of this scandal, (and there were many) was when Weiner sent a picture of himself while his child lay sleeping next to him:

Weiner had known the Clintons and John Podesta for years. Some have described that relationship as almost intimate in nature. They all partied/fundraised with Weinstein who himself was connected to nearly everyone else of note in Hollywood.

And now report after report indicates everyone knew. Some in PedoWood have been speaking out for some time but their careers were soon silenced. They told stories of young actors, male and female, being passed around like toys between studio executives, directors, producers, and other powerful and influential “friends of friends.”

Is it all mere coincidence of association?

Or could it be something else – something horrific, widespread and institutionalized both in PedoWood and Washington D.C.?

Something very wrong.

Something evil.

Woodrow Wilson. FDR. Lyndon Johnson. Robert Byrd. ALL Democrats. ALL Racists.

POTUS Trump was proven right yet again. Just 24-hours after asking the media where the movement to destroy historical monuments would end – including tearing down those honoring figures like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, far left voices like Al Sharpton and others among within the media were demanding that very thing.

Why is it then these very same voices refuse to acknowledge the deeply racist history of the Democrat Party? Where is the cry to destroy all the monuments devoted to figures like Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Lyndon Johnson, and Robert Byrd?

Wilson was a determined segregationist who, when president of Princeton, maintained the “whites only” pedigree. This segregationist attitude persisted throughout the federal government during his time as POTUS. Wilson is revered by modern-era Democrats and Princeton continues to honor him with a college in his name – a college that ironically, wouldn’t admit black students if Wilson’s own rules of exclusion continued today.

FDR, the father of the American welfare state which has enslaved millions of minorities, initiated a federal roundup of Asian-Americans who were then herded into internment camps during World War II, one of the most far-reaching human rights violations in 20th Century U.S. history. What of the FDR memorial? Is that to stand as well?

Lyndon Johnson? Oh my. Where to begin! Johnson was a profligate user of the N-word. He said it loudly and often, including directly to Whit House staff, a practice which made clear his attitude toward black Americans who he equated to “children” who he also described as “uppity n*ggers” during his time as POTUS. The Civil Rights Acts was described by Johnson as “the n*gger bill.”

Senator Robert Byrd was a former member of the KKK. Late in life he spoke of this time as a “mistake” while the media dismissed it as a “youthful discretion.” This was done in part at the urging of the then-Bill Clinton administration. Byrd and the Clintons had a long history with Hillary Clinton going so far as to call him her mentor.

The facts don’t support the “youthful indiscretion” claim, though. All one need do is look at Byrd’s attempt to filibuster the 1964 Civil Rights Act where the former Klansman leader was clearly showing his ongoing support for segregation.

History repeatedly confirms the truth. When it comes to this nation’s racist past, it is the Democrat Party that most often and most recently dedicated itself to that divisive and destructive cause.

Secret Hillary Emails Show Pay to Play Dealings With North Korea, China, Iran, Etc.

It is no secret the Clintons have been unrepentant political grifters for decades to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. And yet, when it is all laid out by Judicial Watch, it still manages to shock given how much they’ve done and yet still continue to get away with it.

And make no mistake, the Clinton Machine is but one tentacle to a very large and insidious D.C. beast that has been ripping off the American people for a very long time…

Judicial Watch: New Abedin Emails Reveal Additional Instances of Clinton Donors Receiving Special Treatment from Clinton Department of State

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released 448 pages of documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing new incidents of Huma Abedin, deputy chief of staff to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, providing special State Department treatment to major donors to the Clinton Foundation and political campaigns.

The heavily redacted documents from Abedin’s non-government account include an email from Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go-between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris.

The documents included six Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 439 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department.

The documents are in response to a court order from a May 5, 2015, lawsuit filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)) for: “All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-‘state.gov’ email address.”

A number of emails show the free flow of information and requests for favors between Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton Foundation.

In July 2009, in reference to the US-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, Clinton Global Initiative head Doug Band told Abedin that she “Need[s] to show love” to Andrew Liveris, the CEO of Dow Chemical. Band also asked for Liveris to be introduced to Hillary, “and have her mention both me and wjc”.  Dow gave between  $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative.  Band also pushes for Clinton to do a favor for Karlheinz Koegel, a major Clinton Foundation contributor, who wanted Hillary Clinton to give the “honor speech” for his media prize to “Merkel.”

The emails reveal that on June 19, 2009, Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, passed a long a letter for Hillary Clinton for Clinton donor Richard Park.  Park donated $100,000 to Bill Clinton as far back as 1993 and is listed by the Clinton Foundation as a $100,000 to $250,000 donor.

The Washington Examiner reported:

In March 2012, Bill Clinton received an invitation to speak at the Kaesong Industrial Complex in North Korea…. Richard Park’s friendship with Tony Rodham earned him a direct line to Hillary Clinton while she served as secretary of state. In January 2013, the Korean businessman sent Rodham an email and asked him to “forward this to your sister.”

On November 14, 2009, Clinton donor Ben Ringel, who has appeared in numerous prior emails asking for favors, emailed Abedin to get help in getting an Iranian woman a visa to come to the United States. He writes: “We need to get her clearance even only temporary to be with her granddaughter.” Abedin forwarded the request to Lauren Jiloty, asking her “Can U help Monday with consular affairs?” Jiloty replies, “Sure. Will look into it.”  Ringel donated between $10,000 and $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation.  In May, Band, working through Abedin, attempts to help Canadian concert promoter and Foundation donor Michael Cohl with the processing of a visa. Abedin passes the request to Monica Hanley, Clinton’s “confidential assistant.”

The emails show that the Clinton Foundation operative Band was involved in personnel matters at the Clinton State Department.  In a May 2009 email exchange between Band and Abedin, a “career post to East Timor for someone is discussed. Abedin explains to Band that Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s then-chief of staff, was working on the situation “under the radar.”

In August 2009, Band tells Abedin of someone who wants to be the ambassador to Barbados. Abedin replies: “I know, he’s emailed a few times. But she wants to give to someone else.”

The emails also show that Abedin received advice from her mother, Saleha Abedin (a controversial Islamist activist), on whom the Obama administration should appoint as the US Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.   She notes that she has obtained a recommendation from “Hassan” (NFI), and that she’d reached out to “Ishanoglu”. This is presumably Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, a Turkish academic and the former Secretary-General of the OIC. Ihsanoglu famously called on the West to enact anti-Islamic blasphemy laws.

On Monday, June 8, Clinton emails her aide Lona Valmoro and Abedin asking to attend a cabinet meeting: “I heard on the radio that there is a Cabinet mtg this am. Is there? Can I go? If not, who are you sending?” Valmoro answers: “It is actually not a full cabinet meeting today – those agencies that received recovery money were invited to attend/participate. We were welcome to send a representative though, not sure if we have anyone going.”

Other emails found in Abedin’s unsecure email account appear to show additional instances of the Clinton State Department’s lax approach to protecting national security.

On July 4, 2009, U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Jonathan “Scott” Gration sent Abedin an email that the State Department has classified in part and redacted because the information deals with “foreign governments” and “national defense or foreign policy.” Abedin forwarded Gration’s email to her personal, unsecure email account.  In his email, Gration related his meeting with Libyan president Muammar Qadafi, saying: “I conveyed our appreciation for Libya’s role to improve relations between Chad and Sudan … Leader al-Qadafi promised to continue his nation’s close collaboration with the United States … and is eager to meet you and President Obama.…” Gration would later be fired for, among other things, using personal email accounts to send government information.

A document titled “HRC PRIVATE LINE BLOCK” gives the planned whereabouts for President Obama for Thursday, June 4, 2009: “Attend POTUS Foreign Policy Speech at Cairo University.” In another example of lax concern for security, Valmoro forwarded Clinton’s detailed daily schedule for July 15, 2009, to officers of the Clinton Foundation, including Doug Band and Justin Cooper. Again, on July 26 Valmoro forwarded Hillary’s detailed, sensitive daily schedule to numerous Clinton Foundation officials.

In other examples of lax concern for security, on June 11, there is a reference to testing the “Federal preparedness and response for an international terrorist threat to the United States. [Principal-Level Exercise] will be a scenario-driven discussion for Cabinet Secretaries, agency Directors and Administrators, senior officials in the Executive Office of the President, or their approved representatives.” A document in Abedin’s unsecure email account dated May 2009 is titled “The Secretary’s Phone Call with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang” is marked sensitive but unclassified and fully redacted, as is a document titled “The Secretary’s Phone Call with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov.”

“I’m not sure how much more evidence of pay for play, classified information mishandling, and influence peddling from Clinton’s email server one would need to show a serious criminal investigation is required,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
