NY Daily News ^ | 3/26/14 | Adam Edelman, Michael Sorrentino

Posted on 03/27/2014 2:58:41 AM PDT by Libloather

A California state senator has been arrested for promising shoulder-fired automatic weapons and missiles from a Muslim separatist group to an undercover FBI agent in exchange for campaign donations, according to court documents unsealed Wednesday.

In San Francisco, FBI agents have charged California State Sen. Leland Yee with conspiracy to deal firearms and wire fraud. The allegations were outlined in an FBI affidavit against Yee and 25 others. The allegations against Yee include a number of favors he requested in exchange for campaign donations, as well as performing "official acts" in exchange for donations to get himself out of a $70,000 debt incurred during a failed San Francisco mayoral bid, according to court documents.

Yee discussed helping the undercover FBI agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired automatic weapons and missiles, and showed the agent the entire process of how to get those weapons from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines into the United States, according to an affidavit from FBI Special Agent Emmanuel V. Pascua.

Pretty impressive. It also said Yee wanted to “flee to the Philippines” (where he had contact with “Muslim separatist” groups???).

He actually did arrange a meeting with the FBI agent and the arms smuggler, so I guess there’s no doubt about the reality of his contacts. I wonder for what group the FBI agent pretended to be seeking weapons.

“I wonder for what group the FBI agent pretended to be seeking weapons.”

It’s a bigger wonder that there are still FBI agents who will sideline their career by indicting a Democrat. WAY TO GO FBI!

I wonder what that little decoration on his lapel is?

I notice that “Raymond (Shrimp Boy) Chow” has something similar in his pocket.

Gang symbol?

The Muslim groups in the southern Philippines that the U.S. had to deal with in the late 1800’s has become the group that is trying to break away from Manila today. In the 1960/70 time frame, they attacked U.S. military personnel in the Clark AFB / Subic Bay area of Luzon Island.

The local news out of Sacramento (all three channels) lead with this story and they very clearly up front made it clear he was a Democrat. This fact was mentioned several times. So while the national media is still protecting the Democrats, the local guys are not. There have been two other high profile cases with Democrats and these stories were brought in the coverage of this story. They are not getting a free pass on this one.

Notice how the term ‘democrat’ isn’t used in the first few paragraphs? Can we assume Adam Edelman and Michael Sorrentino didn’t know what party this guy was in? Or that they’re two suck up liars who cover for ‘their own’.... Tacky - it’s dreadful these two men are called ‘journalist’ — used to be an honorable term...

Here’s another dem ‘winnah’... His party’s not mentioned until after the fourth paragraph... At least the LA Times has an honest headline writer...

Here’s another ‘outstanding’ criminal democrat:

TAKE YOUR SEATS, STUDENTS---TIME FOR YOUR LESSON IN DEMOCRAT POLITICS 101.

==============================================

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,

<><> bribery,

<><> 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 Bill 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 Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s 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).

It certainly has become a home for former terrorists, like Bill Ayres and his bomb-toting Commie wife. Also, the vast majority of Muslims support the Dem party, according to a recent OC Register article, including, I would assume, those Muslims who support the Ikwan al Muslimin and other terrorist-enablers. We can’t forget Jim Jones. An assassin and unapologetic supporter of violent Communist revolution, and supplier of cash and boiler room help for Bay Area Democrat candidates and politicians.

Thanks for the link.

LAT reported: Sen. Rod Wright of Inglewood was convicted in January of perjury and voter fraud stemming from charges that he had lied about his address on voter registration and candidacy papers.

Falsifying Government Documents involves altering, changing, or modifying a document for the purpose of deception.......can also involve forgery and/or passing copies of false documents. Falsifying documents is usually done in connection with broader criminal aims, such as extortion, government fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, financing terrorism........

Types of documents commonly falsified may include:
◾Tax returns and income statements
◾Personal checks
◾Bank account records
◾Business record keeping books
◾Immigration documents (such as visas, passports, etc.)
◾Identification cards and birth certificates

Many different types of acts can be considered as falsifying a document, including:
◾Altering or misrepresenting factual information such as prices or monetary amounts
◾Stating false information when requested to provide truthful statements
◾Forging a signature
◾Using official letterheads without authorization
◾Concealing assets or property WRT obtaining federal/state grants))
◾Knowingly using or distributing a fake document

A person can only be held criminally liable if they are deliberately acting with the intention of deceiving or defrauding another party. /

Falsifying documents is a very serious offense and is generally classified as a felony. This means that a person charged with falsifying documents may be subject to the following legal penalties:
◾Having to pay a monetary fine
◾Incarceration in a prison facility

Depending on the gravity of the offense, as well as individual state laws, falsifying documents can result in a prison sentence of 5-10 years. Also, if government documents or authorities were involved, the legal penalties may be more severe. ..... legal penalties may increase with repeat offenses.

The penalty for falsifying government documents is outlined in the Crimes Act of 1958.

Would not be surprised if this scumbag Yee (China-born) was involved in the lucrative "Chinese baby birthing scams" in the Cali area.

Pregnant Chinese women traveled thousands of miles and knew exactly what to do to board the US gravy train....their babies became US citizens, which triggered chain migrations....the gravy train was at mach speed.

Yee might have used his govt office and tax dollars to aid and abet the scam......for a kickback.
