  • Court docs: Congressman Bob Brady under FBI scrutiny in campaign finance probe (Democrat)

    11/21/2017 2:25:52 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 17 replies
    Rep. Robert Brady, D-Pennsylvania, is a target of FBI scrutiny in an investigation into payments his campaign allegedly made to his opponent in 2012 to encourage him to drop out of the race, according to an approved search warrant application filed in U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Two political consultants have already been charged in the campaign finance probe involving Brady's reelection, but the search warrant application dated Nov. 1 appears to be the first time Brady himself is mentioned as suspected of criminal wrongdoing in the probe. Federal prosecutors last month said Kenneth Smukler and...

  • Hillary Clinton says Trump is abusing power with uranium deal investigation

    Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be "such an abuse of power" by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, "like some authoritarian regime." [Snip] "This Uranium One story has been debunked countless times . . . . It is nothing but a false charge," Clinton said. "It will be incredibly demoralizing to people who have served at the Justice Department . . . because they know better."

    The request alone was enough to trigger a political backlash, as critics of Mr. Trump quickly decried what they called “banana republic” politics of retribution, akin to autocratic backwater nations where election losers are jailed by winners. Democrats still vividly recall Mr. Trump on the campaign trail vowing to prosecute Mrs. Clinton if he won. “It was alarming enough to chant ‘lock her up’ at a campaign rally,” said Brian Fallon, who was Mrs. Clinton’s campaign spokesman. “It is another thing entirely to try to weaponize the Justice Department in order to actually carry it out.” But conservatives said Mrs....

    It was all over the news for two weeks; you couldn’t avoid the stories f you tried. But just a few weeks after the horrendous mass casualty shooting, all talk of what Stephen Paddock’s motivations, connections, and activities have disappeared. Sure, we have the latest mass shooting o contend with, but why have the media, and more importantly, official statements, gone dark? When we look at other mass shootings in US history, they are examined under a microscope e and are still being talked about and theorized on even years later after the actual events. Who hasn’t heard ideas on...

    'Attorney General Jeff Sessions is entertaining the idea of appointing a second special counsel to investigate a host of Republican concerns — including alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russia — and has directed senior federal prosecutors to explore at least some of the matters and report back to him and his top deputy, according to a letter obtained by The Washington Post. The revelation came in a response by the Justice Department to an inquiry from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who in July and again in September...

    As the public has finally began to realize the extent of the corruption surrounding Hillary Clinton, including the now infamous Russia Uranium One deal, the mainstream media has gone into hyper-drive to discredit and distract from documented facts and are now going as far as to float the idea that Trump may be committing a crime for simply investigation Clinton at all. That’s right, in the sick world of the establishment media, Trump is committing a criminal act by even considering an investigation into shady Clinton dealings with the Russians. After all, she is above the law right? Even more...

    The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is ramping up investigation into former President Barack Obama administration’s campaign to “unmask” President Donald Trump aides who were incidentally surveilled in meetings with foreign officials, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. The committee is also intensifying a probe into Fusion GPS, a private “opposition research” company that distributed a salacious memo on Trump, called the “Trump Dossier.” Over the next two weeks the House committee is expected to privately interview former U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power, who reportedly asked to unmask or identify Americans on as many as 260 occasions,...

    An expanding special counsel probe into the Trump campaign's alleged Russian ties has saddled many of President Trump's current and former associates with hefty legal fees and left them few options for footing the bill. More than a dozen people, including the president and vice president, are known to have hired attorneys to help them navigate special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and several additional probes in Congress. Some have complained about the burden of paying for their legal bills without assistance from the wealthy president whose campaign is in the crosshairs of federal investigators. "It's very expensive and nobody's called...

    There’s a lot going on in the Hillary Clinton/Donald Trump/Russia investigation that all the highfalutin newspapers who cover politics are still trying to ignore. Well, investors had better know this stuff before it bites them in the assets. So here goes. Numerous reports coming out of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week said that former FBI Director James Comey made the decision not to refer Clinton for prosecution long before he even interviewed key witnesses, including Hillary. Remember, the Republicans now control this committee. So bad news isn’t going to be stifled anymore. Clinton, you probably remember, “lost” her private...

    The Senate Judiciary Committee has discovered FBI transcripts that reveal former FBI-Director Comey was ready and prepared to completely exonerate Hillary Clinton way before the investigation had concluded, before key interviews with most of the witnesses had occurred, before they had interviewed Hillary Clinton, and before the Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting took place which was the excuse for Comey's public exoneration of Hillary Clinton. Grassley and Graham say they have transcripts of two FBI officials saying Comey was prepared to exonerate Clinton BEFORE FBI interviewed her — Manu Raju (@mkraju) August 31, 2017 In a letter to the new FBI Director Christopher...

    After a year of investigations into the sheer criminality of the former Secretary of State and presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, the FBI has decided not to not turn over files related to its investigation because they say there is a “lack of public interest in the matter.” This is the most disingenuous, false betrayal they have yet committed. There are quite literally millions of people in the US alone that are desperate to get to the bottom of the corrupt pit left in Hillary’s wake. How can they say there is a lack of public interest where even now people...

    Right on cue, a few days after the infamous meeting on June 27, 2016 between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a Phoenix airport tarmac, FBI Director James Comey issued a highly controversial statement that exonerated Hillary Clinton of any wrongdoing in the FBI’s years-long probe into her private email server, which contained classified government documents, not to mention thousands of emails that were acid-washed away or hammered into oblivion by Clinton and her associates. Comey said the FBI decided to close down its investigation into the Clinton “matter,” as it was then euphemistically being described...

    On May 22, 2017, Kim Dotcom posted a statement to his website claiming to have information relevant to the investigation into the July 2016 murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich. Dotcom claimed that he had proof that Rich was the source of the 2016 Democratic National Committee email leak, and that he was willing to provide evidence if US special counsel Robert Mueller could guarantee his safe passage from New Zealand to the United States. Apparently, Mueller did not consider Kim Dotcom’s offer of evidence. However, the New Zealand tech billionaire and his lawyers sent a direct letter to Mueller....

    Special Counsel Mueller has empanelled a grand jury with respect to his investigation into collusion between members of the Trump Campaign and Russian agents. At least that’s the premise. It would not be beyond the realm of possibility that what is presented to this grand jury has little to do with the 2016 election and much to do with whatever he has found looking into all aspects of President Trump’s life and business dealings going back to before the election of Barack Obama. We already know he has been asking questions about a real estate deal from 2008 where a...

    Trump must eventually fire Robert Mueller, a partisan tool carrying water for his Establishment pals as he oversees an utterly corrupt “investigation” where the only person we actually know committed any wrongdoing is his bestest buddy Jim Comey. But Trump can’t just lash out and do it, though it is well within his political and moral right to do so. No, he’s got to do it cleverly, with cunning, in a way that shows the American people exactly why Mueller’s witch hunt is a flaming dumpster fire of conflicts of interest and contempt for the right of normal Americans to...
