Al Sharpton's Secret Work As FBI Informant
The Smoking Gun ^ | 7 Apr 2014

Posted on 04/07/2014 10:31:09 AM PDT by mandaladon

APRIL 7--When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant.

That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted with a recording device.

The high-profile Obama supporter was also on the dais atop the U.S. Capitol steps last year when the president was sworn in for a second term. He was seated in front of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, two rows behind Beyonce and Jay Z, and about 20 feet from Eric Holder, the country’s top law enforcement officer.

As head of the Department of Justice, Attorney General Holder leads an agency that once reported that Obama’s inauguration guest also had La Cosa Nostra contacts beyond Gotham, and engaged in “conversations with LCN members from other parts of the United States.”

The former mob snitch has become a regular in the White House, where he has met with the 44th president in the East Room, the Roosevelt Room, and the Oval Office. He has also attended Obama Christmas parties, speeches, policy announcements, and even watched a Super Bowl with the First Family (an evening the man has called “one of the highlights of my life”). During these gatherings, he has mingled with cabinet members, top Obama aides, military leaders, business executives, and members of Congress.

“The ex-informant has been one of Obama’s most unwavering backers, a cheerleader who has nightly bludgeoned the president’s Republican opponents in televised broadsides. For his part, Obama has sought the man’s counsel, embraced him publicly, and saluted his “commitment to fight injustice and inequality.” The president has even commented favorably on his friend’s svelte figure, the physical manifestation of a rehabilitation effort that coincided with Obama’s ascension to the White House. This radical makeover has brought the man wealth, a daily TV show, bespoke suits, a luxury Upper West Side apartment, and a spot on best seller lists.”........Is he a homo?

This is going to hurt Big Al’s street cred.

I wonder if he is going to lose his MSNBC gig over this revelation. Far lefties don’t like snitches for the Feds.

Sharpton has been a leading supporter of Holder, who spoke at the National Action Network’s 2012 convention and saluted the reverend for “your partnership, your friendship, and also for your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve, and the promises we must fulfill.” ...................two of a kind!

Anybody who has listened to Curtis Sliwa anytime in the last 25 years already knew about this. It has been common knowledge in the NYC area for a quarter century already. This was breaking news around 1991 during the Bush 41 administration.

Sharpton now calls himself a “refined agitator,” an activist no longer prone to incendiary language or careless provocations. Indeed, a Google check confirms that it has been years since he labeled a detractor a “faggot,” used the term “homos,” or derisively referred to Jewish diamond merchants.......................As a black liberal he's entitled to this kind of behavior...

So why did Sharpton agree to become an FBI informant? And why was he willing to risk the dangers inherent in such cooperation? “He thought he didn’t have a choice,” one Genovese squad agent recalled................Interesting answer...

Remember when 0 first infested the WH? Just about his first action was rounding up the East Coast mob and clearing the deck for his Chicago puppet masters.

That was done fast and after it was finished that was it. Never passed off as a war on crime or anything like that. Just get the EC Mafia and open the field for the boys back home.

Good. Mob will cash in. The mob NEVER forgets. If Al was smart, he'd be having plastic surgery, leaving the Western Hemisphere, and never EVER pick up a phone or email again. He's a walking dead man. It couldn't happen to a better person. Good riddance!

I wonder if Valarie Jarrett is connected?

Mar. 28, 1999 - Outfit front-boss Angelo J. “The Hook” LaPietra died from natural causes.
Dec. 23, 1999 - Ronald Jarrett, a mob lieutenant to John “Johnny Apes” Monteleone, of the South Side 26th Street crew, is shot while going to a funeral. It is the first mob hit in Chicago in seven years.

As an FBI informant Sharpton may have been positioned to use law enforcement on occasion to strike at his political enemies, his rivals in the civil rights movement and at businesses and nonprofits he was shaking down for cash.

Anyone could "off" him. Henry Bowman maybe (he needs to come out of retirement). Could be any number of people with greiviences. If they do it smartly, then the FBI will have so many suspects that they would have to create another federal branch interviewing the possible suspect pool.

No kidding...wonder how many Secret Service agents Barack and Eric are going to assign to Al’s personal protection detail?

Obviously, the disclosure of this information is no accident. Did someone at Justice (or the White House) decide that Al’s usefulness was over, or did folks at the FBI—who had the job of “handling” their CI for decades—decide a little payback was in order?

This is funny because my father was a cop in New york city in the 60s and 70s and he said Al when he was a kid would always hang out in the station. I tell people that and they don’t believe me. Well here you go, he was working for the FBI, he liked to play cop.

Agreed.

And...I’d bet the good reverend Al’s service started with himself falling in an FBI honey trap.

Later paid for the same information, with the threat that if exposed he’d claim it was racist over zealous pursuit.
