    Is this scam in VA laundering money for the Iranians?

    Abul Huda Farouki, 75, of McLean, Virginia; his brother Mazen Farouki, 73, of Boyce, Virginia;
    and Salah Maarouf, 71, of Fairfax, Virginia, were each charged with:

    <><> two counts of major fraud,

    <><> one count of conspiracy to violate the restrictions on doing business with Iran,

    <><> four counts of substantive violations of those restrictions, and,

    <><> one count of conspiracy to commit international money laundering.

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

    The Wash/Po reported in 2015, Virginia resident A. Huda Farouki, a longtime Clinton supporter who spent New Year’s
    Eve in 1999 with the Clintons, was one of 120 Clinton Foundation who also contributed to VA Gov Terry McAuliffe.

    Farouki gave McAuliffe $100,000 in campaign cash and at least that much to the Clinton Foundation.

    Farouki, McLean VA, is chairman of Dubai-based defense contractor Anham, which a US government audit found had
    overbilled the Pentagon.

    He, his brother Mazen Farouki, 73, Boyce, Virginia; and Salah Maarouf, 71, Fairfax, Virginia, are charged with: major frauds...including one count of conspiracy to commit international money laundering.

    The lewinskied Clinton didn’t just lie. He lied under oath......a transgression serious enough to cost him his law license.

    THE IMPEACHMENT OF BILL CLINTON

    Attorney David Schippers became a public figure when a friend of his, Congressman Henry Hyde, asked him to be the Chief Investigative Counsel for the US House Judiciary Committee. Schippers was a lifelong Democrat but accepted and took the job in April 1998.

    The Hyde Committee was holding an inquiry on whether President Bill Clinton had committed impeachable offences in his handling of the Paula Jones sexual harassment suit..... during which he committed perjury regarding his affair with then-White House Intern Monica Lewinsky. After an investigation, the committee in December 1998 voted to impeach Clinton, a decision supported by Schippers.

    On December 10, 1998, Schippers said to the committee:
    <><>"The President, then, has lied under oath in a civil deposition,
    <><> he lied under oath in a criminal grand jury.
    <><> He lied to the people,
    <><> he lied to his Cabinet,
    <><> he lied to his top aides,
    <><> and now he's lied under oath to the Congress of the United States.
    <><> There's no one left to lie to."

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

    Upon the passage of H. Res. 611, Clinton was impeached on December 19, 1998, by the House of Representatives
    on grounds of perjury to a grand jury (by a 228–206 vote) and obstruction of justice (by a 221–212 vote).

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

    Chief Justice William Rehnquist presides. House managers are seated beside the semi-circular tables (left)
    and the president's personal counsel (right).

    NY Democrat Jerry Nadler was confronted about his comments–made during former President Bill Clinton's impeachment–saying a president can't commit obstruction of justice. NBC's MTP's Chuck Todd asked Nadler about his past comments, in which he was defending Clinton during the impeachment proceedings against him.".......back in 1999, during the debate about whether or not Bill Clinton obstructed justice, you said at the time you were not convinced that a president could obstruct justice," Todd said. "Do you feel that way, that it's not one of the quote ‘might not be impeachable,’ put it this way, that obstruction of justice might not be an impeachable offense?"

    NADLER HAVING DEMOCRAT-INDUCED MEMORY PROBLEMS "Well, I don't remember saying that, but if I said it, I said it, but no, I don't agree with that today. A president, anybody can obstruct justice," Nadler said. "Obstruction of justice under certain circumstances might be an impeachable offense. Remember, there is a very big difference between a crime which may or may not be impeachable and an impeachable offense which doesn't have to be a crime."

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

    Nadler has been a member of Congress since 1992 and was part to the Clinton impeachment proceedings. In a 1998 floor speech, Nadler said Clinton perjuring himself was not an impeachable offense."Perjury is a serious crime and, if provable, should be prosecuted in a court of law. But it may or may not involve the president’s duties and performance in office. Perjury on a private matter, perjury regarding sex, is not a great and dangerous offense against the Nation. It is not an abuse of uniquely presidential power. It does not threaten our form of government. It is not an impeachable offense," Nalder said.

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

    At the time Nadler said Clinton's perjury with regard to a private sexual affair did not threaten the Constitutional order; it is a crime but was not an impeachable offense. Perjury regarding an attempt by a president to subvert the Constitutional order, to aggrandize power probably, would be an impeachable offense."

    That was then----Rep. Jerrold Nadler defended Clinton "eloquently"......arguing the lewinskied Clinton shouldn't be impeached for lying to conceal an affair with an intern.

    This is now----incoming chair Nadler is itching to impeach Trump using discredited witnesses like porn star Stormy Daniels and her lawyer Michael Avenatti.

    Comey's a triple threat.....he knows nothing---he saw nothing......and he speaks nothing.

    So how did he write a book? And get an advance?

    I guess his publisher had him hooked up to a sodium pentathol drip to help him remember ....

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

    Comey's dearth of knowledge, comprehension and understanding of events while cashing US govt checks appears
    to be a gross violation of govt-regulated employment .....and a high-profile misuse of a govt position.

    Comey does not appear to have carried out the Responsibilities of the FBI Director, such as ensuring that
    cases and operations that impact the safety and security if Americans are handled correctly.

    Americans should demand that Pres Trump determine ASAP whether (A) Comey lied to govt officials as to his fitness to be Director, and, (B) submitted falsified documents to govt officials.
