    Answers: The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is upset that the FBI raided a whistleblower last month who had already given Congress sensitive information regarding possible malfeasance related to the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One deal and is demanding that the bureau’s director, Christopher Wray, explain why it happened. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, asked Wray (pictured above) a series of questions pertaining to the Nov. 19 raid of former FBI contractor Dennis Cain’s home in Maryland, in which agents took electronically-stored information that had been provided under Intelligence Community whistleblower protection laws to the Justice Department’s inspector general,...

    Brown paper covered the windows of Ed Burke's office at Chicago City Hall on Thursday after federal agents showed up there. Burke, who is the City Council Finance Committee chairman in Chicago, once served as President Donald Trump's property tax attorney, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Klafter & Burke, his firm, has often sought to reduce the property taxes Trump Tower and other commercial properties have to pay. The visit from federal agents was unannounced, and it has not been said why they might be there. Upon their arrival, everyone in the office was asked to leave, witnesses told WLS television...

    German police raided Deutsche Bank offices on Thursday, seeking evidence in a money laundering investigation into the practice of hiding money offshore to elude tax collectors and government regulators. "Police officers and tax inspectors entered Deutsche Bank's headquarters in Frankfurt early Thursday morning and seized documents," NPR's Esme Nicholson reports from Berlin. "Prosecutors are investigating two employees of the bank who allegedly assisted customers in setting up offshore firms to avoid anti-money laundering safeguards when transferring money to accounts at Deutsche Bank." Nicholson adds, "According to investigators, in 2016 alone, more than 900 Deutsche Bank customers were served by a...

    FBI agents this week raided the municipal offices in San Juan, Puerto Rico – rooting through documents and seizing digital records as part of a widespread investigation into fraud and obstruction of justice charges tied to the city government. San Juan’s purchasing division was the target of the raid. And while FBI special agent Douglas Leff did not implicate Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz in the raid, he did tell local media that “we are going to follow the investigation where it leads us.”Cruz tweeted Tuesday that she has instructed city officials to cooperate with federal authorities and said, “If someone...

    The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has been asked to look into an incident where a Bradley County SWAT team burst into the wrong house while searching for a homicide suspect. Steve Crump, district attorney in the 10th Judicial District, said he asked the state agency to look into the incident. A spokesman for the Bradley County Sheriff's Office was tight-lipped Tuesday afternoon, not mentioning the error in a news release to the Times Free Press. "Earlier this morning, the Bradley County Sheriff's Office assisted a federal agency with executing a federal search warrant which led to the arrest of a...

    If there was any doubt that Robert Mueller's Ahab-like goal is the unseating of President Trump at all costs and by any means, it was erased by the thuggish FBI raid he orchestrated on the home and office of Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen.   Can't find any collusion between Trump and Russia?  Hey, why not look for collusion between Cohen and professional whore and porn star Stormy Daniels?  Was she paid to go away with campaign funds?  Even so, that's an FEC violation punishable by a fine and something that does not require a SWAT team. It certainly does not compare with...

    The FBI raid on the office and hotel room of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer provoked visceral rage from the president and a burst of misstatements. Here's a look at his remarks: TRUMP: "So I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, a good man, and it's a disgraceful situation." — Comments at a meeting with military advisers Monday. THE FACTS: It was not a break-in. The FBI executed a search warrant obtained from a judge in conducting the raid and seizing records on a variety of matters, among them a $130,000 payment...

    In the absence of any public statements from Robert Mueller’s team or the FBI or DOJ – just leaks to pet media outlets – we can only speculate as to the motives for a thermonuclear escalation of tactics being used against President Trump, in the effort to reverse the presidential election of 2016. They have extended the fishing expedition to include seizure of protected communications between the president and his lawyers, now in the hands of the FBI, the same agency that has been stonewalling Congressional investigation into its behavior in launching the surveillance of the Trump campaign on charges...

    The F.B.I. on Monday raided the office of President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, seizing records related to several topics including payments to a pornographic-film actress. Federal prosecutors in Manhattan obtained the search warrant after receiving a referral from the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, according to Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, who called the search “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.” The search does not appear to be directly related to Mr. Mueller’s investigation, but likely resulted from information he had uncovered and gave to prosecutors in New York.

ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration,” ICE head Thomas Homan said...
