… On 8 October, US Tax Court Judge David Gustafson issued an opinion ruling that the IRS’s Whistleblower Office (WBO) had “abused its discretion” in trying to dismiss “specific credible documentation” put forward by Doyle and Moynihan thus allowing the case against the Clintons’ charities to go on…
… On 13 December 2018, the independent investigators testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, shedding light on the Clinton Foundation’s purported wrongdoings. They stated that having amassed approximately 100 exhibits in excess of 6,000 pages, they came to the conclusion that the charity did not operate as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organisation; made material misrepresentations to the IRS about its operations and entities; and acted as a foreign agent thus making its charitable tax-exempt protection void…
… On 24 September, The New York Times unveiled that US Attorney John Durham, appointed by Attorney General William Barr to look into the handling of the Trump-Russia investigation, also sought information about the FBI’s Clinton Foundation probe.
Several days later, Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe wrote a letter to American lawmakers unveiling an alleged plan by Hillary Clinton and her aides to accuse Donald Trump of non-existent ties with Russia in order to divert the public opinion from her email scandal…
While it might seem frustrating to see republicans and conservatives demanding that President Trump stop talking about the greatest act of sedition and usurpation, within our Constitutional Republic in the history of our nation, this espousal by Andrew McCarthy is factually a very wide-spread opinion within the DC beltway:
Take the intents in their best possible light, and the basic premise is that no-one cares about the abuses of power that took place. National Review article by Rich Lowry is here.
I have shared by own thoughts on this matter several times; and despite knowing this issue may not/will not drive the 2020 election; in my own contemplation I keep coming back to this central question: How can this be ignored?…
… How does the office of a U.S. president; and more importantly the republic itself; survive a coordinated coup effort involving all three branches of government; while simultaneously those in charge of exposing the corruption fear the scale is too damaging for them to reveal?
… President Trump on Tuesday said he has “fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents” related to the Russia investigation and the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server….
According to page 463 of a report by Inspector General Horowitz entitled “A Review of Various Actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election”, the FBI opened an investigation into the “Clinton Foundation” in January 2016, when Jim Comey was Director.
So far, we do not know how aggressively Comey’s FBI may have pursued its Clinton Foundation “investigation.” By now, however, John Durham and his team should have examined all available records pertaining to the 2016 era effort to see how and why it must have been stymied and by whom.
For, in January 2016, during years before and to the present, there was no lawfully organized or operated “Clinton Foundation.” This is a hard fact that Comey and Mueller must have learned over the course of a previous FBI investigation that ran from 2001 to 2005. That investigation centrally involved Comey and was briefed to Mueller.
Worse for Comey and Mueller, are stories that a whistleblower tried to tell starting early in January 2016
Allegations of a Criminal Conspiracy to Protect Hillary Clinton and Others
Starting on page 122 of Part 23 in the FBI Vault File concerning mishandling of classified information by Hillary R. Clinton, a letter to Comey at his FBI headquarters address dated Jan. 10, 2016 begins with the following subject identified:
“Evidence about Private Emails Used to Transmit Classified U.S. Government Information and the Lies Told by Hilary [sic] Clinton and Others in an Attempt to Conceal Her Breach of National Security.”
The letter opens directly:
“The purpose of this letter to you as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is to provide evidence which should lead to the conviction of former Secretary of State Hilary [sic] Clinton for lying to a Congressional House Committee investigating the situation surrounding what happened September 11, 2011 [sic]….I watched her lie in her testimony.”
Then it gets into matters long the focus of Senator Chuck Grassley’s interest:
“Additionally, this letter should provide evidence of criminal actions by Hilary [sic] Clinton and her personal and official staff, including some, who were also acting under the pay of other persons and organizations such as the Clinton Foundation and its partners in this crime against United States National Security. This evidence should also be used to convict those senior, major and minor employees of the United States directly involved in knowingly permitting or assisting and attempting to delay and block a Federal investigation of this case.”
Though asked by the whistleblower to confirm receipt of this lengthy letter and supporting documents, Comey and his office apparently did nothing.
An Unscheduled Follow-Up Visit
Comey’s inaction only increased interest on the part of the State Department whistleblower who made a trip to the Washington, D.C. F.B.I field office on Jan. 27, 2016, scant days before pivotal primaries began for Democrats and presidential contenders.
Record of the meeting is contained in Part VI of the FBI Vault File on Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of Classified Information, starting on page 11.
The internal F.B.I. memo says the visitor:
“…explained to writer he had sent evidence of Hillary Clinton’s misuse of classified documents to the F.B.I. Director earlier in January 2016, but when he called to confirm receipt he could not do so and therefore wanted to make sure the information was received by the right people at the F.B.I., specifically the “task force” working on the Clinton email.scandal.”
Courageously, the visitor:
“…explained he was a long-time government employee and had previously worked for many years at the Department of State. He provided a resume and a U.S. Foreign Service Employee Evaluation Report to prove his bonafides.”
According to the F.B.I. report, the informant:
“…did not go into detail as to what the evidence was as he had provided other types of documents explaining the evidence to the unclassified level he could.
He offered to be interviewed in a S.C.I.F. so he could talk at a higher classification level to further explain other evidence he had.
All other documents [he] provided …are being attached in a 1-A for further review by the appropriate personnel reviewing this matter.”
So, exactly what did the F.B.I. and Justice Department do thereafter? Presumably, John Durham has followed this trail and briefed Bill Barr.
Testing the Mettle of Barr and Durham
The long sweep of activities involving the Clinton family and supposed charities linked to their names might seem complicated.
In truth they are part of one corrupt playbook — entities that are never lawfully organized or run, solicit funds illegally that they receive and spend for political purposes and on themselves without ever validly accounting for billions of dollars.
When minor politicians do this with mere hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars, they pay fines and may go to jail. But when dynastic political families carry on for decades brazenly flouting the law, people including George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama let the Clinton family off, without deserved punishments.
James Comey, Robert Mueller and others who relentlessly targeted Donald Trump have serious conflicts of interest. They “missed” Clinton Foundation fraud and corruption in 2016, perhaps because key figures missed these crimes from 2001 through 2005 when they were serious but far smaller in financial terms.
Preferably in indictments, convictions and plea agreements, Barr and Durham may prove they and the Trump Administration will keep one key set of promises not yet addressed — draining the Deep State Swamp by bringing the Clintons, their fake charities and donors to account for the largest set of charity frauds and influence peddling schemes ever attempted.
Around the world, eyes are watching as we wait for important history to be made.
Obama knew of the bogus plan to tie candidate Trump to Russia in late July 2016. At the same time Obama kicked off secret meetings that were held in the basement of the White House.
As noted earlier today, DNI John Ratcliffe declassified documents revealing former CIA Director John Brennan briefed Barack Obama on Hillary Clinton’s plot to ‘stir up’ a scandal to tie Trump to Russia in order to distract from her email scandal ahead of the 2016 election.
“In late July 2016, US intelligence agencies obtained insight into Russian intelligence analysis alleging that US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had approved a campaign plan to stir up a scandal against US Presidential candidate Donald Trump by tying him to Putin and the Russians’ hacking of the DNC. The IC does not know the accuracy of this allegation of the extent to which the Russian intelligence analysis may reflect exaggerations or fabrication,” Ratcliffe wrote to Lindsey Graham
The Coup Against Trump because he was anti-war and “not one of us” is unraveling deeper and deeper corruption which is leading right to Gina Haspel who is the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). They have contrived fake news and used it to go after everyone around Trump to disrupt his administration. Flynn is just the tip of the iceberg. The FBI is prohibited to penetrate and subvert any presidential campaign. Executive Order 12333, Section 2.9,“Undisclosed Participation in Organizations in the United States.” This expressly prohibits in very plain language any sort of intervention that arose from the U.S. Army Counterintelligence penetrating Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) to aid the FBI during the 1960s. Because of this prohibition, they viewed this as only prohibiting domestic intervention. That legal prohibition is why the FBI felt the need to manufacture a “foreign counterintelligence threat” in the UK and then “import” the investigation back into the United States…
… Now, the American Center for Law and Justice is seeking a copy of an email and its attachments that President Obama’s White House counsel sent to former FBI Director Jim Comey just hours before the new president was inaugurated in 2017.
It concerns “spies” placed in the White House.
That’s known because the ACLJ sued under the Freedom of Information Act for information about communications on that subject.
“We sent a FOIA request regarding former FBI Director Comey’s spies inside the White House: Anthony Ferrante, Jordan Rae Kelly, and Tashina Gauhar. It’s important to remember that one of those was the liaison to the FBI. One held a tech job and somehow got to stay in the White House. And one was at the National Security Council,” the ACLJ said.
“We filed our FOIA request and a lawsuit on these spies and we received an interesting reply. Our FOIA wound up uncovering an email that was sent from President Obama’s White House Counsel to multiple names. Some of the recipients’ names were redacted but some were not. The unredacted ones were former FBI Director Jim Comey and former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe.
It was sent at 3 p.m. on Jan. 19, 2017.
“What’s interesting about that date? It was the day before President Trump was sworn in as the next president of the United States.”
The email referenced an “attached letter.”
“Now they’re refusing to give us the attachment, so guess what – we’re taking the FBI to court. What TOP SECRET information did they have to send from the Obama White House Counsel to the FBI Director and Deputy FBI Director the night before President Trump was inaugurated? The American people have the right to know,” the ACLJ said…
Comment by tonytran2015: He holds daily conferences since March to the point that TV now don’t bother to make live broadcasts. He refused Federal offers of help. He set up quarantine hotels which became Covid breeders. He made all decisions but held his State health minister responsible and she resigned. Now he wants more sweeping power.
