#FBI & #StateDept scandal: ArrestThemAll #Wikileaks

The Watergate “smoking gun” was that Nixon suggested the CIA tell the FBI to back off the investigation because of national security reasons. The CIA was never instructed to do so and the FBI did its investigation. Here the Obama State Department “pressured” the FBI to alter documents so Hillary’s story would be believable, and State offered some goodies like slots in overseas embassies. The Obama State Department actually did what Nixon only dreamed and talked about.

On October 15, 2016, Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard reported:

“A senior State Department official repeatedly pressed the FBI to change the classification of emails stored on Hillary Clinton’s private server, according to FBI interview summaries set to be released in the coming days. Patrick Kennedy, the undersecretary of state for management, discussed providing additional overseas slots for the FBI in exchange for revisions to classifications of the sensitive emails.”

In plain English, the Obama State Department asked the FBI to phony up the emails marked confidential so the emails were consistent with Hillary’s story. In return the FBI would get some juicy overseas slots. This shows what the Obama State Department thinks of the FBI: the Comey FBI can be bought with a couple of overseas slots.

There is no way that Patrick Kennedy, or anyone at State, would have made the move to the FBI to fix Hillary’s emails unless the move was approved by higher-ups. In these political conspiracies there are “buffers” between guys like Patrick Kennedy and the higher ups. The Obama State Department is run by John Kerry, who does what Obama tells him to do.

This begs for an investigation by an independent prosecutor, and the Senate and House Judiciary Committees should immediately subpoena Kennedy, Kerry, Comey, and the agents involved.

Comey should have revealed this in his July 5 news conference when he listed Hillary’s lies and extreme negligence but gave her a pass.

The FBI has been compromised by Hillary and Obama. Its once sterling reputation is shattered. Comey should have recommended indictment of Hillary along with those who made the offer to phony up the documents. If we had a Justice Department, there would be a grand jury right now issuing subpoenas to the FBI agents and Patrick Kennedy and John Kerry, and all other buffers between Kennedy and Hillary and Obama.

If we had a halfway honest media, right now this would be 24 hour news, with a name for the scandal like Slotgate, State-FBIgate, Fix Hillary’s Emailgate, or some other name.

But where are the Republicans on this? If Republicans did this, Democrats would be all over it, and justifiably, demanding investigations.

McConnell, Ryan, McCain, Romney, and other Republican leaders should be on TV asking why this pressure was applied, who applied it, who ordered it, who stands to benefit from it, and demanding answers from Obama. They should be asking why Obama and Michelle are campaigning every day to help Hillary, which is consistent with the Obama State Department trying to help Hillary.

But the Ryan-McCain Republicans are hiding in the corner denying they know Trump and jumping ship, and giving Obama and Hillary another pass.

#BooHooAlert: Dearborn Arab community concerned with FBI flyovers

The head of the Detroit FBI sought to reassure metro Detroit’s Arab-American and Muslim communities Wednesday in the wake of a report that the agency flew a spy plane over Dearborn.

Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Detroit office Paul Abbate met with Arab-American leaders in Dearborn at the office of the Arab-American News along with U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Dearborn) and Dearborn City Councilman Mike Sareini.

Several Arab-American groups released statements denouncing fly-overs.

Osama Siblani, publisher of the Arab American News, said some local residents are “very nervous about the FBI, ICE, everybody related to the government. They’ve been harassed at borders, harassed at airports, harassed at home. They’ve been told over and over that they are a terrorist, and they are treated as such.”

But the FBI released a statement saying the agency does not target any group or region because of their ethnic or religious background. Abbate said that the FBI routinely uses airplanes for specific surveillance and does not conduct mass surveillance.

“We do not target specific communities,” Abbate said. He added that the FBI is “not aware of any specific or credible threat to the Detroit metropolitan area.”

Abbate did not comment on records that show a small plane circling around Dearborn over the weekend.

A 2010 single-engine Cessna, registration number N102BR, can be seen on flightradar24.com on Saturday from roughly 7:30 pm. to 9 p.m., taking a flight path from the Harrison Township area then across Wayne County to southwest Dearborn, where it circles about 19 times before turning north.

A similar flight is taken Sunday evening, over an area including the Henry Ford Museum, Fairlane Green shopping center and a number of surrounding neighborhoods.

The area of Dearborn that the plane circled over includes a mosque, the American Moslem Center, but is not as heavily populated by Muslims as is the eastern section of Dearborn.

The plane is registered to OTV Leasing of Bristow, Va., records show. The Associated Press reported last spring that dozens of airplanes associated with the FBI were using fake companies with post-office boxes in Bristow, about an hour’s drive from FBI headquarters. The AP investigation listed OTV Leasing among at least 13 fake companies used by the FBI, the Detroit News reports.

More than 40% of Dearborn’s population has roots in the Middle East, the highest concentration among all cities in the U.S. Most of them are Muslim. A year ago, Arab-American groups expressed concern when a report compiled by the National Counterterrorism Center listed the city as second only to New York City among communities with the highest number of terrorists, or those tied to terrorists.

The FBI Detroit office issued a statement today:

“Contrary to the suggestion of some recent media reporting, the FBI does not employ aviation assets to conduct mass surveillance nor to target specific communities. Neither does the FBI monitor lawfully protected First Amendment activity. Further, the FBI Detroit Field Office is not aware of any specific or credible threats within the local Detroit metropolitan area,” said the statement.

Abbate told the Free Press that “it’s no secret” that the FBI uses airplanes sometimes.

The statement explained: “As stated in the June 4th, 2015 release from the FBI National Press Office, the FBI routinely uses aviation assets in support of lawful, predicated investigations targeting specific individuals and, when requested and appropriate, in support of state and local law enforcement.

“The use of aviation assets is strictly regulated and governed through rigorous oversight by DOJ and in full compliance with the Attorney General Guidelines and the FBI’s Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide. The FAA is fully aware and supportive of this practice.”

Dr. Muzammil Ahmed, chair of the Michigan Muslim Community Council, said the best security comes from citizens working with law enforcement, rather than law enforcement working unilaterally.

“We were a little bit surprised” to hear of the flyovers, he said. “I’d like to reserve judgment until we get further details of what transpired.”

The Arab American Civil Rights League in Dearborn called for an investigation into the airplane over Dearborn. Its chairman, Nabih Ayad, said: “The right to privacy is a fundamental American value enshrined in the Constitution and protected by the Bill of Rights…While we absolutely acknowledge the great work that the FBI does in protecting us every day, we also expect the FBI to lead by example in protecting our privacy from unreasonable searches. We can work together as Americans to seek that balance between personal privacy and security.”

The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said it was concerned and intended to file a complaint. The Michigan chapter of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee also expressed alarm, saying in a statement: “The use of government aircraft to conduct profiling of a religious or ethnic community without probable cause is unconstitutional and harmful to the entire Dearborn community.”

Other Arab-Americans in Dearborn didn’t mind the airplane.

“I’m all for any governmental activities that will make us safer,” said Majed Moughni, a Dearborn attorney. “If spying will lead to an arrest, so be it. We are law abiding citizens who have nothing to hide.”

FBI Holds Special Meeting in Juarez on Press Strategy to Deny Judicial Watch’s Reporting About ISIS on the Border

The government watchdog group Judicial Watch is not backing down from its report about ISIS training camps on the border amid Obama administration denials.

In a new report, up at its website today, Judicial Watch reports that a “high level intelligence source” has confirmed that FBI supervisors called a special meeting at the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juárez.

The source, who “must remain anonymous for safety reasons,” told Judicial Watch that the meeting was convened specifically to address a press strategy to deny their reports about terrorist activity on the border, and to figure out who is leaking the information to JW.

FBI supervisory personnel met with Mexican Army officers and Mexican Federal Police officials, according to JW’s intelligence source. The FBI liaison officers regularly assigned to Mexico were not present at the meeting and conspicuously absent were representatives from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It’s not clear why DHS did not participate.

Publicly, U.S. and Mexico have denied that Islamic terrorists are operating in the southern border region, but the rapid deployment of FBI brass in the aftermath of JW’s report seems to indicate otherwise. A Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector were among the sources that confirmed to JW that ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas. The base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua.

Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm. During the course of a joint operation last week, Mexican Army and federal law enforcement officials discovered documents in Arabic and Urdu, as well as “plans” of Fort Bliss – the sprawling military installation that houses the US Army’s 1st Armored Division. Muslim prayer rugs were recovered with the documents during the operation.

Newsmax TV’s J.D. Hayworth talked to Judicial Watch investigative reporter Irene Garcia about their bombshell report from earlier this week, which claimed that terrorists have set up a training camp on the southern border. Garcia, a former L.A. Times reporter, said authorities on both side of the border have confirmed that the activity is occurring, but the Obama administration continues to claim the reports are unfounded for a number of reasons.

Garcia said: “He wants better relations with Mexico, he’s allowing this influx of illegal immigrants coming in, he’s now facilitating with a program that Judicial Watch just broke, last week, where he’s flying the minors in, now because it’s too treacherous to cross the desert. If there’s terrorists right nearby – that would of course ruin that plan. A lot of it is denial – a lot of it is negligence – it’s downright insane and certainly deplorable that this is happening so close to our border, and yet the administration continues to officially say, that the border is secure – that this is unfounded.”

Garcia explained that ISIS is trying to enter the country through two ports of entry – El Paso and an area on the New Mexico border.

She referenced a Judicial Watch report from last August exposing a leaked DHS warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border that had been issued within the agency and was not meant to go public.

Garcia ended by noting that a U.S. government report a few years ago acknowledged that Middle Eastern Islamic terrorists have teamed up with drug cartels on the border.

As Judicial Watch reports, “coyotes, engaged in human smuggling – and working for the Juárez Cartel – help move ISIS terrorists through the desert and across the border between Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, New Mexico.”

“But these reports get very little media attention and most of the public never hears about it,” she said.
