Convicted Pedophile Funneled Millions In Foreign Cash Into Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign

Convicted pedophile, UAE adviser and central witness in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, George Nader, has pleaded guilty to his role in helping the UAE funnel millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions into US campaigns during the 2016 presidential election, according to The Intercept, citing federal court documents filed last month.

In a December sentencing memo, federal prosecutors disclosed that Nader had agreed months early to plead guilty to a single count of felony conspiracy to defraud the US government by pumping millions in donations to Hillary Clinton’s campaign – concealing the foreign origin of the funds.

Nader conspired to hide the funds “out of a desire to lobby on behalf and advance the interests of his client, the government of the United Arab Emirates,” according to the prosecutors’ sentencing memo. Nader received the money for the illegal donations from the UAE government, the memo said. The filing marks the first time that the U.S. government has explicitly accused the UAE, a close ally, of illegally seeking to buy access to candidates during a presidential election.

Nader’s guilty plea opens a new window into the efforts of the United Arab Emirates and its de facto ruler, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, known as MBZ, to influence the outcome of the 2016 election and shape subsequent U.S. policy in the Gulf. The government’s memo notes that Nader and Los Angeles businessperson Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja also sought to cultivate “key figures” in the Trump campaign and that Khawaja donated $1 million to Trump’s inaugural committee. It is unclear where that money came from. -The Intercept

Nader is accused of taking instructions from UAE Crown Prince MBZ, and gave regular updates on his efforts to get close to Clinton.

In total, Nader transferred nearly $5 million from his UAE business to Khawaja – CEO of a Los Angeles-based payment processing company. According to prosecutors, the funds were disguised as a routine business contract between the two men. Of the total transferred, more than $3.5 million came from the UAE government and was given to pro-Clinton Democratic political committees. Prosecutors have yet to publicly identify what happened to the remaining $1.4 million Nader transferred to Khawaja.

In 2016, Khawaja co-hosted an August fundraiser for Clinton which included a laundry list of high-profile guests, including Univision owner Haim Saban, movie mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg and basketball legend Magic Johnson, according to the report. According to the indictment, Khawaja conspired with six other individuals to conceal his excessive contributions. Others who were indicted were also linked to donations to Clinton and other Democrats.

The indictment quotes an alleged encrypted message that Nader sent an official from Foreign Country A via WhatsApp after Khawaja contributed $275,000 and invited Nader to attend and April 16, 2016, event for presidential Candidate 1.

Wonderful meeting with the Big Lady . . . Cant wait to tell you about it, Nader allegedly wrote, in an apparent reference to Clinton.

The indictment noted that political committees that received funding unwittingly submitted false disclosure reports and were presumably victims of the plot. Still, Hillary Clinton apparently attended numerous events, including small gatherings, with Nader, who on July 19, 2016, messaged the foreign official a photograph of him with Candidate 1s spouse an apparent reference to Bill Clinton at Khawajas home. –Washington Post

Prosecutors have sought a five-year sentence for Nader – after he completes the 10-year sentence he’s currently serving for possessing child pornography, and for sex-trafficking a minor to the US “for the purpose of engaging in criminal sexual activity.”

Nader was arrested in January 2018 at Dulles Airport by agents working for Mueller. A search of his iPhones revealed child pornography, which we imagine was used as leverage to gain his cooperation. Three months later, prosecutors filed charges against Nader for the images – however they were filed under seal and kept secret from Nader’s lawyers while he was working with Mueller.

In July of 2017 – 15 months after Mueller let a serial pedophile roam the streets in the hopes he’d be able to nail Trump, Nader was finally indicted on both the child porn and for sex-trafficking a 14-year-old boy.

And of course, Mueller knew about Nader’s 1991 conviction on child pornography charges in the US – for which he served only six months in a halfway house thanks to his role in helping to free American hostages in Beirut. He was also convicted in the Czech Republic in 2003 on 10 counts of having sex with underage boys, and eventually received a one-year prison sentence.

POLITICAL SUICIDE: Two Democrats are Floating the Idea that Hillary Clinton is ‘Likely’ the Party’s ‘Best Option’ for 2024

Ryan DeLarme
January 11, 2022

Two Democrats have penned an opinion piece claiming that Hillary Clinton is probably the Democratic Party’s best hope of winning the White House during the upcoming 2024 presidential contest.

“If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option,” consultant and pollster Douglas Schoen and former New York City Council president, Manhattan borough president, and state assemblyman Andrew Stein opine.

Schoen describes himself as a Democrat on Twitter. And the description on a New York Post opinion piece by Stein indicates that he is a Democrat.

Schoen and Stein point to President Biden’s lackluster approval ratings and other issues to say that Clinton could fill her party’s leadership void.

“A perfect storm in the Democratic Party is making a once-unfathomable scenario plausible: a political comeback for Hillary Clinton in 2024,” the duo writes. “Several circumstances—President Biden’s low approval rating, doubts over his capacity to run for re-election at 82, Vice President Kamala Harris’s unpopularity, and the absence of another strong Democrat to lead the ticket in 2024—have created a leadership vacuum in the party, which Mrs. Clinton viably could fill.”

Present Biden, whose birthday is on Nov. 20, will not turn 82 until after the 2024 election, which is scheduled for Nov. 5. But if he were to run for re-election and win, he will be 82 years old when he begins his second term.

Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, has previously served as a senator from the state of New York and as the secretary of state under President Barack Obama.

“She is already in an advantageous position to become the 2024 Democratic nominee. She is an experienced national figure who is younger than Mr. Biden and can offer a different approach from the disorganized and unpopular one the party is currently taking,” Stein and Schoen contend.

Durham Zeroes in on Clinton Campaign, Could Call Some Aides to Testify, Court Memo Reveals

By John Solomon

Hillary Clinton’s team long fought to keep its ties to Christopher Steele’s dossier from public view, but Special Counsel John Durham is now making clear he has a strong interest in her campaign’s behavior during the Russia collusion probe. He is even suggesting some of her aides could be summoned as trial witnesses.

Durham’s earth-shaking revelation came inside a routine court filing this month in the case of Igor Y. Danchenko, a Russian analyst who was a primary source in 2016 for Steele’s now-infamous dossier. Danchenko has been charged with repeatedly lying to the FBI during the Russia collusion probe and has pleaded innocent.

File DanchenkoIndictment.pdf

Durham’s motion asked the presiding judge to determine whether Danchenko’s lawyers —Danny Onorato and Stuart Sears of the Schertler Onorato Mead & Sears law firm — pose a conflict of interest because the firm also represents the Hillary for America campaign as well as several former campaign officials in “matters before the special counsel.”

“The Clinton Campaign financed the opposition research reports, colloquially known as the ‘Dossier,’ that are central to the Indictment against the defendant,” the Durham team stated in the motion. “Accordingly, for the reasons set forth below, the government respectfully requests that the Court inquire into the potential conflict issues set forth herein.”

File DurhamMotionDanchenkoClintonConflicts.pdf

Prosecutors said they want to know what the Clinton campaign knew about the accuracy of the Steele dossier’s now-discredited allegations of Trump-Russia collusion and whether any campaign “representatives directed, solicited, or controlled” Danchenko’s activities assisting Steele.

“The interests of the Clinton Campaign and the defendant could potentially diverge in connection with any plea discussions, pre-trial proceedings, hearings, trial, and sentencing proceedings,” the prosecutors told the court, often referring to the Steele dossier as “Company Reports.”

“For example, the Clinton Campaign and the defendant each might have an incentive to shift blame and/or responsibility to the other party for any allegedly false information that was contained within the Company Reports and/or provided to the FBI,” the Durham filing stated. “Moreover, it is possible that one of these parties might also seek to advance claims that they were harmed or defrauded by the other’s actions, statements, or representations.”

For the first time, Durham also raised the possibility aides to Hillary Clinton could testify at Danchenko’s trial.

“In the event that one or more former representatives of the Clinton Campaign (who are represented by defense counsel’s firm) are called to testify at any trial or other court proceeding, the defendant and any such witness would be represented by the same law firm, resulting in a potential conflict,” Durham’s team argued.

And for one of the first times, Durham’s team declares to a court what it believes was the political motive for the Clinton campaign to pay its law firm, Perkins Coie, to hire the Fusion GPS investigative firm to hire the retired MI6 agent Steele to write anti-Trump Russia reports known as the dossier.

“The Clinton Campaign, through Law Firm-1 and U.S. Investigative Firm-1, commissioned and financed the Company Reports in an attempt to gather and disseminate derogatory information about Donald Trump,” the filing stated.

In all, the latest Durham court filing identifies five areas where the prosecutor’s case may pose a conflict, including:

  • the Clinton campaign’s “knowledge or lack of knowledge concerning the veracity of information” in the dossier created by Steele with help from Danchenko;
  • the Clinton campaign’s “awareness or lack of awareness of the defendant’s collection methods and sub-sources”;
  • “meetings or communications” between the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS and Steele “regarding or involving” Danchenko;
  • “the defendant’s knowledge or lack of knowledge regarding the Clinton Campaign’s role in and activities surrounding the” Steele dossier;
  • And “the extent to which the Clinton Campaign and/or its representatives directed, solicited, or controlled” Danchenko’s activities.

“On each of these issues, the interests of the Clinton Campaign and the defendant may diverge,” the court filing explained.

The memo gives the most detailed explanation to date of Durham’s interest in the Clinton campaign and its potential exposure in his criminal investigation, surprising even some veteran Russiagate investigators.

“He is moving forward methodically against the largest organized criminal enterprise to ever take down a presidential election,” said Kash Patel, the former chief investigative counsel for the House Intelligence Committee. Patel worked with Rep. Devin Nunes, the committee’s chairman, to expose the bogus Russia collusion narrative as a political dirty trick that fed opposition research to the FBI to cause Trump to be investigated on false pretenses.

Patel, a former federal prosecutor and adviser to Trump, told the John Solomon Reports podcast that the memo is “an unbelievable twist” in the Russia case. He said the fact that the law firm representing the Clinton campaign is the same one representing Danchenko was certain to raise questions.

“You have to ask yourself why,” he said. “Why would the Clinton campaign lawyers go and represent the Steele dossier’s No. 1 source, who has been charged federally with five counts of lying to the FBI in a 39-page indictment that cites Clinton campaign former staffers?

“There is no such thing as coincidences in these types of investigations.”

Hillary Asks for Donations to the Clinton Foundation and Gets Grilled on Twitter

Joe Hoft
December 31, 2021

The Clintons are likely the most corrupt couple in US history.  If we had a DOJ and protection for Jeffrey Epstein, they’d be in jail.  

Can there be anyone as corrupt and oblivious to their own corruption as the Clintons?  Bill was impeached for obstructing justice and tampering with witnesses involving numerous incidents and crimes that took place in his administration.  Hillary and Bill made millions in their foundation while giving a huge percent of US uranium to Russians for a few more million.  Next Hillary created the bogus Russia collusion sham that the corrupt DOJ and FBI ran with.  Now Hillary is asking for donations?

In a tweet, Hillary asked for donations for her corrupt foundation.

The responses were spot on.

Some responses were related to the Clintons’ reported embezzling of funds from Haiti meant for hurricane survivors.

Republican Representative Threatens Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, With Prison If Party Wins In 2022


Carmine Sabia
January 1, 2022

The majority of analysts in the world of politics believe that Republicans are going to win back control of the House of Representatives in 2022, and some believe that they will use the opportunity to get revenge on Democrats for what they have done when they had the House.

Florida Rep. Kat Cammack said, in an exclusive interview, that some Democrats could be headed to prison, Breitbart News reported.

“When we take the House back in the 118th, first and foremost, we are going to be focused on accountability, people need to go to jail,” she said at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest in Phoenix, Arizona.

“I’m talking about the Hillary Clintons of the world, I’m talking about the Eric Holders, I’m talking about all these people who have continued to cause strife and division, break the law, subvert the Rule of Law, and they have never been held accountable,” the congresswoman said.

“We’re going to go after the origins of COVID-19, we’re going to be looking at how we can earn the trust of the American people back,” she said. “Because for so long, there has been two standards: one for thee, and then rules for the other people that don’t have power, that aren’t well-connected.”

She said she wants the new Congress to investigate election integrity and other issues including “all of the issues we’ve had in years past that have gone unresolved, like Benghazi.”

“With Afghanistan now, that’s going to be another one,” she said.

She said that the plan is for Republicans to have an agenda that “that every single Republican will be running on, campaigning on, and committing to putting that agenda forward.”

“And once we take the House, we roll hard on executing that plan, because the American people they deserve accountability, and they deserve action,” she said. “And those are the two things that we’re going to be giving when we take over the House.”

House Minority Leader and California Rep. Kevin McCarthy also said in December that there would be payback for Democrats if Republicans get control of the House again in the 2022 midterms, as Newsmax reported.

…[McCarthy] is not only preparing to turn the tables on the majority in the 2022 midterm elections, but he is also beefing up efforts for subsequent retribution for Democrats hunting down the Trump administration officials in investigations.

He is planning “preservation notices” for President Joe Biden’s Cabinet, which instructs them to save communications and documents for future oversight in Congress.

“The investigations will not be able to be carried out in a Democrat-led Congress, but in the event Republicans take over, McCarthy’s preservation notices to the Biden administration might prove fruitful to spur probes of Democrats like they have conducted of the Trump administration, including the Mueller Report, Ukraine, COVID-19, and Jan. 6,” Newsmax added, citing a report in Axios.

The political news outlet added a shortlist of possible areas where Republicans would focus:

  • Origins of COVID-19.
  • Leak of IRS data about billionaires.
  • Alleged National Security Agency spying on Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
  • Attorney General Merrick Garland’s memo mobilizing the FBI and Justice Department attorneys to look into investigating and prosecuting local school board protests.
  • Mass illegal immigration.
  • Communications with teachers unions on COVID-19 lockdowns and mask mandates.
  • Cloud-computing contract known as J.E.D.I.

Axios noted that as a “prelude” to possible future actions, House Republicans sent Biden a request in August to “preserve all records related to your Administration’s withdrawal … from Afghanistan.”

“McCarthy plans to beef up staff, counsel and other resources to be ready to extract information beginning Day 1 if the GOP gets the gavel,” Axios continued.

Axios claimed that the GOP probes would be an attempt to deflect from the Jan. 6 committee’s investigation, “a real-time probe of real violence, death and looting in the Capitol.” But the only death resulting from direct action was the shooting of pro-Trump protester Ashli Babbitt, who was unarmed. A Capitol Police officer, Brian Sicknick, was initially — and incorrectly — reported to have died from a blow to the head from a Trump supporter wielding a fire extinguisher. In fact, he died a few days later from a stroke.

Durham Tells Court Members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 Campaign Under Scrutiny

Martin Walsh
December 22, 2021

OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author’s opinion

Special Counsel John Durham’s team has informed a federal court that former members of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign are under scrutiny for their possible roles in spreading Trump-Russia collusion allegations.

“Durham’s team requested that a judge ‘inquire into a potential conflict of interest’ connected to the lawyers for British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s main anti-Trump dossier source, Igor Danchenko, pointing out that a separate lawyer at their firm ‘is currently representing the 2016 ‘Hillary for America’ presidential campaign, as well as multiple former employees of that campaign, in matters before the special counsel,’” Newsmax reported.

“Danchenko was charged with five counts of making false statements to the FBI. Durham’s indictment said Danchenko, a U.S.-based and Russian-born researcher, made these statements about the information he provided to Steele for his dossier, which the FBI relied upon when seeking authority for the secret surveillance of a former Trump campaign aide but which now has been discredited,” the report continued.

“The attorneys who took over as Danchenko’s lawyers this month told Judge Anthony Trenga of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia that Durham’s team was raising questions about Robert Trout, who is of counsel at their firm and previously represented Clinton campaign members, but insisted there is no conflict of interest,” the report continued.

Durham’s team said that there are 5 topics that may become relevant to Danchenko’s defense.

1. “The Clinton campaign’s knowledge or lack of knowledge concerning the veracity of information” in the Steele dossier;

2. “The Clinton campaign’s awareness or lack of awareness” of Danchenko’s “collection methods” for the dossier;

3. “Meetings or communications” between the Clinton campaign and Steele about Danchenko;

4. “The defendant’s knowledge or lack of knowledge regarding the Clinton campaign’s role in” the dossier;

5. “The extent to which the Clinton campaign and/or its representatives directed, solicited, or controlled” Danchenko’s actions.

Durham noted that: “On each of these issues, the interests of the Clinton Campaign and the defendant might diverge. For example, the Clinton Campaign and the defendant each might have an incentive to shift blame and/or responsibility to the other party for any allegedly false information that was contained within the Company Reports and/or provided to the FBI.”

Investigative reporter John Solomon has a theory about who special counsel John Durham will go after next — the FBI.

During an interview on Fox News, Solomon and host Maria Bartiromo spoke about Durham’s investigation and what might be next.

Russian-born analyst Igor Danchenko — key source for the Steele dossier that alleged ties between the Donald Trump campaign and Russia — was arrested by federal agents as part of the Durham investigation.

Solomon explained that he believes Durham is dealing with “two buckets.”

In one “bucket,” there are the last two indictments against officials who were connected to Hillary Clinton and their plan to feed the FBI false information about Trump-Russia conspiracies.

Solomon said the other “bucket” focuses on the FBI and whether agents knowingly mislead the FISA court to obtain warrants to spy on members of Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Solomon also disputes former FBI counterintelligence chief Peter Strzok’s statement on MSNBC last week that the FBI never investigated the Trump campaign in 2016, as Durham’s investigation into the origins of the Mueller probe makes another indictment.

“There’s no doubt there is activity inside the grand jury right now aimed at looking at top-level officials of the FBI, and it’s based on this evidence. We all look at the fact that Denchenko was interviewed by the FBI on January 17, and disowned a lot of the things that were said to him,” he said.

FBI Agent Who Uncovered Weiner Laptop with Hillary’s Emails says FBI Leadership Told Him to Erase All of His Findings

Joe Hoft
September 21, 2020

John Robertson, was an FBI Agent who investigated crimes against children.  This is how he stumbled upon Hillary Clinton’s emails. 

We first reported on Robertson in August of 2018 when the mainstream media was focused on the Trump Russia Mueller sham investigation.

John was assigned to the Anthony Weiner case, a top Democrat married to Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin. During his investigation of Weiner’s computer John discovered thousands of Hillary Clinton emails and blew the whistle on the Comey-McCabe and Strzok cover-up of evidence.

Yesterday the Washington Examiner reported:

“The crickets I was hearing was really making me uncomfortable because something was going to come down,” Robertson said he later told Justice Department investigators. “Why isn’t anybody here? Like if I’m the supervisor of any [counterintelligence] squad … and I hear about this, I’m getting on with headquarters and saying, ‘Hey, some agent working child porn here may have [Hillary Clinton] emails. Get your ass on the phone, call [the case agent], and get a copy of that drive,’ because that’s how it should be. And that nobody reached out to me within, like, that night, I still to this day don’t understand what the hell went wrong.” Robertson wrote a “Letter to Self” in late October after an Oct. 19, 2016, meeting, during which he implored Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer of the Southern District of New York to push FBI leadership to look at the thousands of emails he had unearthed.

“I have very deep misgivings about the institutional response of the FBI to the congressional investigation into the Hillary Clinton email matter … Put simply: I don’t believe the handling of the material I have by the FBI is ethically or morally right. But my lawyer’s advice — that I simply put my SSA on notice should cover me — is that I have completed CYA [Cover Your Ass], and I have done so,” Robertson wrote. “Further, I was told by [Kramer] that should I ‘whistleblow,’ I will be prosecuted.”

Robertson continued: “I possess — the FBI possesses — 20 times more emails than Comey testified to. … While Comey did not know at the time about what I have, people in the FBI do now, and as far as I know, we are being silent. … If I say or do nothing more, I am falling short ethically and morally. And later, I may be accused of being a Hillary Clinton hack because of the timing of all this. … But if I say something (i.e., whistleblow), I will lose my reputation, my career, and risk prosecution. I will also be accused of being a Donald Trump hack.”

The Daily Mail reports on Robertson saying:

The only advice from his bosses was to erase his office computer, which meant leaving no record of his investigations, a new book says.

Charles Ortel, who’s an expert on the corruption within the Clinton Foundation believes that there were a number of Clinton Foundation emails on the Weiner laptop:

Others believe that what was found on the Weiner laptop was shocking, we reported on this in August 2018 as well.  In late 2016 shortly before the 2016 election on November 4th, 2016, Erik Prince, founder of Blackwater, was on Breitbart radio and he said shocking things about Weiner’s emails –

Prince claimed he had insider knowledge of the investigation that could help explain why FBI Director James Comey had to announce he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s email server last week.

“Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.

“They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.

“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

“I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York – the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in this investigation, and they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. That’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department is doing against actually seeking justice in the email and other related criminal matters,” Prince said.

Prince shared that the NYPD kept a copy of all the emails on Weiner’s computer, and the following –

Prince agreed, but said, “If people are willing to bend or break the law and don’t really care about the Constitution or due process – if you’re willing to use Stalinist tactics against someone – who knows what level of pressure” could be brought to bear against even the most tenacious law enforcement officials?

We still don’t know what happened to the Weiner emails.  We now know that Robertson did a CYA to protect himself.  The American people deserve to know what was on the laptop an in those emails.

ABOVE THE LAW: Hillary Clinton Does Not Have to Testify on Private Email Server, Appeals Court Rules

MIMI NGUYEN LY
August 15, 2020

A three-judge federal appeals court panel on Friday overturned an order for Hillary Clinton to sit for a deposition over her use of a private email server for government work while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

The order reverses a lower court decision that had granted conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch a request to depose Clinton and her former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills over the emails.

The case comes from an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that Judicial Watch filed against the U.S. Department of State back in 2014 (pdf), initially seeking emails related to the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which killed four Americans.

This original FOIA lawsuit expanded when Judicial Watch learned in March 2015 that Clinton had used a private email server for government work during her 4 years at the State Department.

Washington District Court Judge Royce Lamberth, who was assigned the FOIA case in 2014, subsequently ordered a discovery plan in December 2018 to investigate whether Clinton had intentionally used a private email server to evade FOIA; whether the State Department’s attempts to settle the case in late 2014 and early 2015 “amounted to bad faith;” and whether the State Department adequately searched for records in response to Judicial Watch’s initial request.

Lamberth, an appointee of former President Ronald Reagan, on March 2 ordered (pdf) Clinton and Mills to sit for depositions as part of another round of discovery. The scope of Clinton’s depositions would be limited to seeking why she used a private server, and what her understanding of the State Department’s records-management obligations were. Questions over the Benghazi attack would be limited to Clinton and Mills’ knowledge of the existence of any emails, documents, or text messages related to the attack.

Clinton and Mills subsequently filed petitions to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals on March 13 seeking to block the ordered depositions. The circuit judges on Friday unanimously granted Clinton’s request but denied Mills’s. The appeals court panel noted that Mills had other ways to appeal her deposition that were not available to Clinton.

The appeals court also accused the district court of an “abuse of discretion” in ordering the discovery.

“The mere suspicion of bad faith on the part of the government cannot be used as a dragnet to authorize voluminous discovery that is irrelevant to the remaining issues in a case,” Judge Robert Wilkins, an appointee of former President Barack Obama, wrote in the decision. Judges Cornelia Pillard, another Obama appointee, and Thomas Griffith, who was appointed by former President George W. Bush, joined in the decision.

Wilkins also wrote that Clinton “has already answered interrogatories from Judicial Watch on these very questions” in a separate FOIA case between Judicial Watch and the State Department, overseen by District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton. In that case, Clinton provided written responses and explained that “the sole reason she used the private account was for convenience,” Wilkins wrote.

Wilkins further noted that Congress, the FBI, and the State Department have also investigated Clinton’s email situation.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement that the organization was “disappointed” by the appeals court’s decision and is considering its next steps. In a separate statement, he characterized the decision as “political” and said that it is “contrary to longstanding precedent and undermines the Freedom of Information Act.”

Clinton’s attorney David Kendall, when asked to comment on the ruling, told media outlets in an email, “The Court’s opinion speaks for itself.”

The FBI in July 2016 had recommended against criminal charges against Clinton following its investigation into her use of a private email server. Then-FBI Director James Comey said that Clinton and her colleagues were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

The Department of Justice Office of Inspector General (OIG) reviewed the FBI’s Clinton email probe and concluded in June 2018 that there was no evidence of political bias found, but noted in its report (pdf) that the pro-Clinton and anti-Trump bias expressed by FBI officials who conducted the inquiry “cast a cloud” over the credibility of the investigation.

The State Department began its review of the emails in December 2014 but suspended its inquiry at the FBI’s direction in March 2016. The department resumed the inquiry in July 2016 after the FBI completed its investigation. After pausing briefly after the FBI discovered additional emails and reopened the investigation in August 2016, the State Department inquiry proceeded uninterrupted for 38 months. The State Department’s review didn’t include the thousands of emails subpoenaed by Congress but deleted by Clinton’s server administrator.

The State Department in 2019 finished its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server, and said it found nearly 600 security violations, but could not find “persuasive evidence” of “systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information.”

Hillary Clinton Attempts to Revive Russia Hysteria Before Election

 Matt Palumbo
July 21st, 2020

The 2016 election’s silver medalist is at it again, and she’s reviving an old boogeyman.

Ignoring the absolute lack of evidence that Russia intervened in the 2016 presidential election to help Donald Trump’s campaign and lack of evidence of collusion, Hillary Clinton wants the world to know that Russia is ready to strike again.

According to Fox News:

Hillary Clinton said on MSNBC’s “Reidout” Monday night that President Trump had commuted ex-adviser Roger Stone’s sentence “to basically shut up Roger Stone so that Roger Stone would not spill any more beans about what actually happened and what Donald Trump actually knew.”

“This is a continuation of the cover-up,” Clinton declared. It was not immediately clear what Clinton was implying that Stone could have divulged to prosecutors; Special Counsel Robert Mueller and federal prosecutors never alleged that Stone had engaged in a criminal conspiracy with any Russian actor.

Although Clinton didn’t provide evidence to support her theory, she went on to assure viewers on the primetime show that Russia had successfully swung votes to Trump in 2016 — and will try to do so again.

It’s also unclear how the Russians were responsible for Hillary failing to campaign in Wisconsin.

In October 2016, when a Hillary presidency was a mere inevitability in the eyes of the media, she called Trump a “sore loser” because of a comment she interpreted as his refusal to commit to accepting the results of the election (which it turns out he had no problem doing for obvious reasons).

Ironically, years later it’s she who can’t seem to accept the results of the election, and she hasn’t even been creative enough to invent a new boogeyman.

REMINDER: Hillary Clinton Celebrated Confederate Flag Day Every Year as Arkansas First Lady – Bill Clinton Signed Law to Honor Confederacy

 Jim Hoft,
June 12th, 2020

In 2016 Hillary Clinton delivered a KKK-white supremacist speech in Reno, Nevada to a small group of supporters.

Hillary Clinton was hoping to paint Republicans as a racist but forgot about her own racist past as Arkansas first lady.

As first family of Arkansas the Clintons set aside a special day each year to honor the Confederate Flag.
The Clintons even established a $100 fine for those violating the law:

Clinton had a Confederate flag-like issue of his own. Arkansas Code Annotated, Section 1-5-107, provides as follows:

(a) The Saturday immediately preceding Easter Sunday of each year is designated as ‘Confederate Flag Day’ in this state.

(b) No person, firm, or corporation shall display an Confederate flag or replica thereof in connection with any advertisement of any commercial enterprise, or in any manner for any purpose except to honor the Confederate States of America. [Emphasis added.]

(c) Any person, firm, or corporation violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be fined not less than one hundred dollars ($100) nor more than one thousand dollars ($1,000).

Bill Clinton signed Act 116 that stated “The blue star above the word “ARKANSAS” is to commemorate the Confederate States of America.”

And it wasn’t that long ago that the Hillary Campaign was mass producing Hillary Confederate pins.
