Skip to comments.Leland Yee denounced by gun lobby as a 'hypocrite' and 'scumbag'
Posted on 03/27/2014 2:17:42 PM PDT by Second Amendment First
As details of state Sen. Leland Yees alleged crimes trickled out, advocates associated with gun-rights groups jumped on the possible ironies.
An affidavit filed in federal court in San Francisco by FBI Special Agent Emmanuel V. Pascua said there was probable cause to believe that Yee had conducted various crimes, such as engaging in a conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally import firearms.
Yet Yee, a prominent figure in California's Democratic legislative majority, had crusaded against guns and violent video games for years.
The criminal complaint revealed Wednesday stated that Yee sought donations in return for connecting an Italian gangster from New Jersey with an international arms dealer. The gangster was actually an undercover federal agent, the complaint said.
The complaint said Yee talked tough about having shady contacts who could obtain automatic weapons.
"Do I think we can make some money? I think we can make some money, the state senator said, according to the complaint. Do I think we can get the goods? I think we can get the goods."
The complaint says Yee described his approach to arms dealing as "agnostic."
People want to get whatever they want to get. Do I care? No, I dont care. People need certain things, Yee said, according to the complaint.
Later Wednesday, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms issued a statement ripping the 65-year-old San Francisco Democrat.
If these allegations are true, Sen. Yee is easily the biggest hypocrite on gun control to walk the halls of the capitol in Sacramento, if not the entire United States, said the groups chairman Alan Gottlieb.

Leland Yee: Breaking Bad.
The GOP indictments will start about three weeks before the November elections.
If the shoe fits...
“Leland Yee: Breaking Bad.”
Guns for Yee, but not for thee...
HOW DEMOCRATS GET AND KEEP PUBLIC OFFICE--101: California Democrat, State Sen Leland Yee, discussed w/ an undercover FBI agent about supplying terroristic- style weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired automatic weapons and missiles....in exchange for campaign contributions.
Sen Lee showed the FBI agent the entire process of how to get those weapons from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines into the United States (according to the FBI affidavit). Yee's alleged crimes also include:
<><> wire fraud,
<><> money laundering,
<><> corruption in office,
<><> alleged murder-for-hire plots targeting a political consultant who apparently crossed Yee,
<><>international weapons trafficking conspiracy in exchange for campaign contributions to Yee.
LESSON REFERENCE: Sen Yee's Democratic Playbook---plotting w/ terrorists to advance his political ambitions---- is widely used in Democrat circles.
Former Pres Nill Clinton was grinning like a simpering fool at the annual meeting of the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative Foundation" few months back.. Notwithstanding the bombshell news that (1) the Clintons had employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist....and, (2) the Clinton Foundations were outed by the NY Times for their shady dealings and runaway spending.
Gehad al Haddad (above), Muslim Brotherhood activist AND former Clinton employee.....is ready to carry out presidential orders. Gehad is currently sitting in a nice comfy Egyptian jail as we type. Gehad al Haddad was a Muslim Brotherhood spox--while simultaneously working at Hillary and Bill's tax-exempt foundation.
Gehad was arrested by the Egyptian military for inciting violence AT THE SAME TIME he was a Clinton employee. Gehad knows plenty about the way the M/B uses tax-exempts for money-laundering (to finance terror activities against America).
THE CLINTON-MUSLIM TERRORISM CONNECTION --- The Muslim terrorist was working at the Clinton Foundation AND conducting terrorist activities at the same time. Gehad al Haddad's intimacy w/ the Clintons explains why they remade themselves into the hallowed "Clinton Family Foundation."
The Clintons doing their "Holy Family" act.
NOTE The Clintons' shady foundation financing is unveiled in a recent NYT expose of Clinton corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. Actions Billy took as president now serve to fuel hefty contributions to the foundation.
The Clintons' shady tax-exempt modalities are unveiled in the recent NYT investigative story. Corruption, greed, entitlement, nepotism, cronyism. The Clintons didn't have a pot to *** in in Arkansas---never even had a home to call their own. Now they're multi-millionaires.......with hundreds of millions in donations from dubious sources financing Hillary's ambitions and Bill's ego-driven obsession for being in the limelight.
There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three tax-exempt Clinton Foundations and their assorted money-grabbing derivations.
We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's lifestyle/political ambitions---- especially b/c Hillary is running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.
NY POST EXCERPT ----The Bill Clinton Foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses Bill Clintons foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofits tax forms reveal.....includes $4.2 million in 2011 for the William J. Clinton Foundation (to which Hillary and Chelsea are attached); $730,000 for the Clinton Global Health Initiative; and $7.2 million for the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI). ///VETO To: Liz Amazing what can be included in travel expenses: hookers, gem purchases, plastic surgery, limo leasing, private plane purchases, etc.
“Yee had conducted various crimes, such as engaging in a conspiracy to deal firearms without a license and illegally import firearms.”
“Yet Yee, a prominent figure in California’s Democratic legislative majority, had crusaded against guns and violent video games for years.”
Sounds like another “fast and Furious” set up.
i was watching some of it yesterday again.
Hold up there big guys!
He has been indited, not convicted, but it doe look bleak for Mr Lee.
He’s worse than that, he’s a traitor who conspired to deal with American’s enemies. He should face a firing squad.
That is rassis.
“The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms issued a statement ripping the 65-year-old San Francisco Democrat.
If these allegations are true, Sen. Yee is easily the biggest hypocrite on gun control to walk the halls of the capitol in Sacramento, if not the entire United States, said the groups chairman Alan Gottlieb.”
Was Yee just an anomaly, or is he typical of rats publicly opposing gun ownership by good people and privately making a fortune providing guns to the criminals.
What really happens to the guns where a reward is paid if they are turned in in a liberal city? Are they melted down or sold to the highest bidder.
Democrat Senator Sen. Leland Yee (Democrat-California) is definitely a hypocrite. Democrat Senator Sen. Leland Yee (Democrat-California) has a lot of explaining to do. I hope the justice system works in the case of Democrat Senator Sen. Leland Yee (Democrat-California).
Conspiring with muslim militants: TREASON!
When he gets out of the slammer, and he runs for office again, his campaign slogan can be “Yee, ha!!!!”
I don’t like to look a gift horse in the mouth but I’ll really get excited when the FBI comes for Senator de León.
yes, he conspired with Americas’ enemies - Holder and the Just Us Department (FBI)
Not quite. What he actually said was:
"This poster boy for gun control is a scumbag," he said.
The reporter has just insulted scumbags everywhere.
When will the media play the race card?
