Clinton Campaign Attorney Indicted For Lying To FBI In Trump-Russia Investigation

An attorney who represented Hillary Clinton’s most recent failed presidential campaign in 2016 was indicted on Thursday for allegedly lying to FBI officials, as part of U.S. Special Counsel John Durham’s probe into the origins of the FBI’s investigation of supposed ties between Russia and former President Donald Trump’s campaign.

“Michael Sussmann, a partner with Perkins Coie who also represented the Democratic National Committee in connection with Russia’s hack of the organization, is accused of making false statements during a Sept. 19, 2016 meeting with former FBI General Counsel James Baker,” Reuters reported. “This marks the second criminal case Durham has filed so far since former Attorney General William Barr tapped him in 2019 to investigate U.S. officials who probed the Trump-Russia contacts.”

According to the New York Times, Biden administration Attorney General Merrick B. Garland has the authority to overrule Durham but declined to.
“Donald J. Trump and his supporters have long accused Democrats and Perkins Coie — whose political law group, a division separate from Mr. Sussmann’s, represented the party and the Hillary Clinton campaign — of seeking to stoke unfair suspicions about Mr. Trump’s purported ties to Russia,” the New York Times
reported. “The case against Mr. Sussmann centers on the question of who his client was when he conveyed certain suspicions about Mr. Trump and Russia to the F.B.I. in September 2016. Among other things, investigators have examined whether Mr. Sussmann was secretly working for the Clinton campaign — which he denies.”

“According to the indictment, Sussmann ‘lied about the capacity in which he was providing the allegations to the FBI’ when he met one-on-one with FBI General Counsel James Baker,” the Daily Mail explained. “That prompted to Baker to assume he was acting merely as a ‘good citizen’ rather than as a ‘paid advocate or political operative.’ He stated falsely that he was not doing the work ‘for my client,’ according to the indictment. Sussmann had handed over three ‘white papers’ as well as computer files containing evidence of the reported secret channel.”

    If it has to do with anyone named Clinton, you can bet it’s filled with lies, sleaze and political ‘dirty tricks’. Clinton (with the help of Obama and Biden) created the ‘Russian Hoax’ as a diversion (aka: a classic Democrat ‘bait and switch’) from Hillary’s e-mail scandal in those final months leading up to the 2016 election. It’s refreshing to know that those conspirators are finally being brought to justice although everyone knows they’ll never touch Clinton herself, or Obama, or Biden, or Comey, or anyone else that knew about the bogus Steele dossier.

San Francisco Forced to Close 5 More Walgreens as Shoplifting is ‘De Facto Legal’ in California

Published

Walgreens

Crime rates in densely populated liberal cities continue to rise, all while leaders grapple with how to defund the police. Viral videos show just how easily robbers can get away with nonchalantly stealing large goods from a store knowing there will be no repercussions.

Liberal leadership has created a criminal safe haven, even backing them with legislation. California made the theft of merchandise worth $950 or less a mere misdemeanor knowing law enforcement likely won’t take the time to respond to a call or investigate. Cops know it’s a waste of their ever-shrinking resources because prosecutors will let the thieves slide.

As a result, Walgreens will be forced to close five entire stores in San Francisco in the next month due to the incessant retail crime, said a company spokesperson on Tuesday. The spokesperson said retail theft in its San Francisco stores has risen to five times the chain’s average.

Walgreens has already closed roughly a dozen stores in the bay area in the past two years. San Francisco Mayor London Breed said, “what I want people who commit these crimes to understand: your mother, your grandmother, your relatives, they depend on places like Walgreens and CVS and Targets where they have pharmacies to get their medications. So when these locations close in a community, then the entire community loses.”

Breed’s words are meaningless when her laws speak volumes. The Hoover Institution writes California laws have made shoplifting “de facto legal” writing, “Google ‘shoplifting in San Francisco’ and you will find more than 100,000 hits.”

“You will find lots of YouTube videos, where you can watch a single thief, or an entire gang, walk into an SF Walgreens or CVS and empty the shelves. Most walk in, go about their pilfering, and then walk out.”

Because of the state’s $950 misdemeanor law, “California is extending an open invitation to anyone to walk in and take. Just like that – since they know that police or prosecutors won’t bother with a misdemeanor complaint and that store personnel won’t stop them.”

“It’s not just pharmacies that are being ransacked. Recently, San Francisco’s Neiman Marcus was targeted by thieves who had a hankering for designer handbags and hit the purse department hard. The video shows one after another, after another, running out, as apparently there were 10 thieves, and they stole over the $950-per-hief misdemeanor limit.”

Supreme Court Orders Biden Admin To Reinstate ‘Remain In Mexico’ Policy

Published

on

The Supreme Court rejected the Biden administration’s request for the Court to reverse a district-court order requiring the Biden administration to reinstate the Trump administration’s “remain in Mexico” policy, which requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while they wait for a hearing in U.S. immigration court.

“The Supreme Court on Tuesday said the Biden administration likely violated federal law in trying to end a Trump-era program that forces people to wait in Mexico while seeking asylum in the U.S,” the Associated Press reported.

“After the Biden administration ended the [remain in Mexico] policy, Texas and Missouri went to federal court in Texas to challenge that decision,” SCOTUSblog reported. “The states argue that the decision to terminate the policy violated federal immigration law and the federal law governing the procedures that federal agencies must follow. They also contend that, without the policy, large numbers of migrants can enter the United States based on dubious asylum claims, imposing costs on the states.”

“A federal district judge agreed with the states and ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the policy by Aug. 21. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit declined to put the ruling on hold to give the government time to appeal,” they continued.

On Friday, the Biden administration went to the Supreme Court, “Justice Samuel Alito, who handles emergency requests from Texas, briefly paused the district court’s order to allow the justices to consider the request. Alito put the order on hold until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday and ordered the states to respond by 5 p.m. Tuesday afternoon – signaling that the court would act quickly.”

The Biden administration’s temporary end of the “remain in Mexico” policy is considered of the main reasons illegal immigration levels have reached record levels.

In July, the number of migrants hit the highest level on record since the Department of Homeland Security began keeping track in 2001. Illegal immigration levels first broke the 20-year record in March, and then the record was broken again every following month.
