Indictment unsealed, Wolfe arrested for lying about leaking from Senate to Media with encrypted messaging aps

Published

on

Thursday, Jim Wolfe, a former staff employee,  was arrested for lying to the FBI about talking to the Media. In fact he had been leaking non-public information, so he could help shape public opinion about the 2016 election.

Former U.S. Senate Employee Indicted on False Statements Charges

Longtime Director of Security for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Accused of Lying to FBI About Repeated Contacts with Reporters

            WASHINGTON – A former staff employee of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) has been indicted and arrested on charges of making false statements to special agents of the FBI during the course of an investigation into the unlawful disclosure of classified information, announced Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers, U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Jessie K. Liu, and Timothy M. Dunham, Special Agent in Charge of the Counterintelligence Division of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

James A. Wolfe, 58, of Ellicott City, Md., was indicted by a federal grand jury on three counts of violating Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001. At the time he made the alleged false statements to the FBI, Wolfe was Director of Security for the SSCI, a position he held for approximately 29 years. As SSCI Director of Security, Wolfe was entrusted with access to classified SECRET and TOP SECRET information provided by the Executive Branch, including the U.S. Intelligence Community, to the SSCI.  In this position, Wolfe was responsible for safeguarding all classified information in the possession of the SSCI.

“The Attorney General has stated that investigations and prosecutions of unauthorized disclosure of controlled information are a priority of the Department of Justice.  The allegations in this indictment are doubly troubling as the false statements concern the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive and confidential information,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers.  “Those entrusted with sensitive information must discharge their duties with honesty and integrity, and that includes telling the truth to law enforcement.”

“Mr. Wolfe’s alleged conduct is a betrayal of the extraordinary public trust that had been placed in him,” said U.S. Attorney Liu. “It is hoped that these charges will be a warning to those who might lie to law enforcement to the detriment of the United States.

“All individuals in positions of trust must be held to the highest of standards, as the American public deserves no less,” said Special Agent in Charge Dunham.  “As alleged in this indictment, Mr. Wolfe failed to meet those standards in his repeated lies to federal agents concerning the unauthorized disclosure of information.  His arrest demonstrates that this conduct will not be tolerated, and those that engage in it will be held accountable.”

The charges in the indictment are merely allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The maximum penalty for each count of making a false statement to federal law enforcement agents is five years in prison. The maximum statutory sentences are prescribed by Congress and are provided here for informational purposes. The sentencing of the defendant, if he is later convicted, will be determined by the court after considering the advisory Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

The investigation into this matter is being conducted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys for the District of Columbia, with assistance from the Counterintelligence and Export Control Section, National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

[Exposed in OIG] “I have initiated the destruction of the republic..” Pete Santilli’s Patriots uncover sedition

Published

on

Sunday, a group of American Patriot gathered with Pete Santelli, of the Pete Santelli Show, to discuss and research the  500 plus-page document from the Department of Justice, Office of the Inspector General, which was recently released into the public.”

From the Press Release

“Department of Justice (DOJ) Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz announced today (June 14) the release of a
report examining various actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the DOJ in advance of
the 2016 election in connection with the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use
of a private email server (referred to by the FBI and DOJ as the “Midyear” investigation).

 

The full report can be found HERE

The group will meet together as a working experiment with a framework, led by Santilli, to help expose the details of the report the MainStream media ignore, or refuse to see.

FIRST MAJOR DISCOVERY

The group had it’s first discovery Sunday night.

Page 416 of the report  titled, A Review of Various Actions by theFederal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election, reads:

“Among the general discussion of political issues by FBI Attorney 2, we identified three instant message exchanges that raised concerns of potential bias.

The first of these exchanges was on October 28, 2016, shortly after Comey’s October 28 letter to Congress that effectively announced the reopening of the Midyear investigation. FBI Attorney 2 sent similar messages to four different FBI employees.

The timestamps of these messages are included below.”

The messages stated:

13:44:42, to FBI Employee 1: “I mean, I never really liked the
Republic anyway.”

13:44:52, to FBI Employee 2: “I mean, I never really liked the
Republic anyway.”

14:01:52, to FBI Employee 3: “As I have initiated the destruction of
the republic…. Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this
afternoon?”

15:28:50, to FBI Employee 4: “I’m clinging to small pockets of
happiness in the dark time of the Republic’s destruction”

Pattern of abuse,”The problem is McCabe and Comey, but mostly Mueller”, Robyn Gritz talks

Published

on

This is part one of a series of conversations:

Populist Wire spoke with Robyn Gritz, former FBI  agent, who spent 16 years at the FBI, where she investigated a series of major national security threats. But she says that her forced retirement happened as a result of her problems with her supervisors, who pushed her out and yanked her security clearance.

“I was the only female on my squad for pretty much 7 years. Everyone treated me just like another agent. I had an issue with one supervisor sexually harassing me but Newark executive management jump in and handled it,” Gritz told Populist Wire.

Gritz spent a decade fighting terrorism, in 2015 she started warning people about how the bureau treats women and the effects of fighting for law and order ” I had battled al-Qaida in Iraq, the Taliban,” Gritz said.

For 15 years her bosses at the FBI gave her excellent or outstanding performance reviews until one man labeled her overly emotional, in what appears to be a campaign to get rid of her out of counter-terrorism jobs.

RETALIATED AGAINST FOR COMPLAINING

“The guys who I have worked directly with up in Newark are pissed about what happened to me. Most of them have reached out. State Troopers, Commerce Agents etc. I used to do fugitive raids with another squad. I never had an issue. They knew I was prior law enforcement and was in Camden, NJ. The joke was about me having no issue with arrests and the head of SWAT at the time always picked me as his partner. He said I was tactically sound. Aka one of the team,” she said.

“I had issues with Mccabe when we were in Washington Field but I thought we had worked it out. I hear now that I was wrong. He’s so unethical. If I had an issue with anyone, I addressed it with them respectfully. I guess I should have taken the class in how to shank your co-workers. I had top secret emails showing I had to be in a scif in a building after their records showed I had left,” said Gritz.

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM WITH THE FBI?

“Recruiting is not the problem. Retention and culture are,” she said. There are a number of cases she is following of female FBI agents who have brought lawsuits against their male superiors.

The general concern is for the FBI whistleblowers, who are retaliated against for turning in their superiors.

“My case is in limbo and still in the EEOC process. I’ve been waiting two years for a decision by a judge on a motion we filed, 2 years ago. My attorney passed away last month. I wrote a letter to Comey requesting reinstatement. I outlined 24 policies and laws broken in my case alone. I heard nothing back,” she told Pop Wire.

WHEN DID THESE PROBLEMS START?

“It changed with Mueller. The media needs to stop defending the higher ranks of the FBI. The rank and file are just as fed up,” she said.

“This double standard has been going on for decades. OIG glosses over it. They refuse to take a look at my case because it’s an EEO. But that is exactly why they need to take a look. A good portion of excellent female agents are pushed out because they stand up to the White Male Hierarchy. It’s like they bait us into filing an EEO, said Gritz.

“McCabe needs to stop cloaking himself with the hardworking and ethical employees of the FBI,” she said.

Gritz said she would like to be reinstated, but is near to 50. Gritz had retweeted this article, along with others, which she told us to show a pattern of the problems in a culture at the FBI, especially against female FBI agents.

Gitz has ongoing legal issues trying to be reinstated.

Mr. Disney and Mr. Weinstein Meets Mr. RICO: Racketering charges filed Friday

Published

on

Friday,  according to the New York Law Journal, “In a class action lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court, three more women have alleged they were sexually assaulted by former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

Caitlin Dulany, Larissa Gomes, and Melissa Thompson allege they were each the target of Weinstein’s predations, which were facilitated by his production companies Miramax and The Weinstein Co., along with individuals at those companies, as part of an ongoing criminal enterprise.

“The suit alleges violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). Among the defendants named in the suit are Miramax and the Walt Disney Co., which now owns the studio,”NY Law Journal wrote.

According to the filing:

The proverbial “casting couch” was Harvey Weinstein’s office of choice, a choice facilitated and condoned by Miramax, The Weinstein Company (“TWC”) and its Board of Directors. Plaintiffs, and hundreds of other females like them, found themselves with Weinstein on the casting couch at offices, in hotel rooms, in his homes, or in rooms at industry functions.

Under the guise of meetings ostensibly to help further Plaintiffs’ careers, or to hire them, or to socialize at industry events, Weinstein isolated Plaintiffs and Class Members in an attempt to engage in unwanted sexual conduct that took many forms: flashing, groping, fondling, harassing, battering, false imprisonment, sexual assault, attempted rape and/or completed rape.

2. Plaintiffs and Members of the Class had or wanted to have careers in the entertainment industry and correctly understood that Weinstein was a powerful force in the production world. At all times, Plaintiffs and the Class operated under duress and the credible and objective threat of being blacklisted by Weinstein and major film producers such as Miramax and TWC if they refused Weinstein’s unwanted sexual advances or complained about
his behavior.

To the extent a woman was “lucky” enough to escape physically unscathed, Weinstein’s behavior (and the fact it was facilitated by TWC and Miramax, the “Complicit Producers”) nonetheless caused injury to their business prospects, career, reputation, and severe emotional and physical distress.

3. Weinstein’s power and the pervasiveness of his misconduct was recently summarized in The New Yorker as follows:
Since the establishment of the first studios, a century ago, there have been few movie executives as dominant, or as
domineering, as Harvey Weinstein. He co-founded the production and-distribution companies Miramax and the Weinstein Company, helping to reinvent the model for independent films with movies including “Sex, Lies, and Videotape,” “The Crying Game,” “Pulp Fiction,” “The English Patient,” “Shakespeare in Love,” and “The
King’s Speech.”

Beyond Hollywood, he has exercised his influence as a prolific fund-raiser for Democratic Party candidates, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Weinstein combined a keen eye for promising scripts, directors, and actors with a bullying, even threatening, style of doing business, inspiring both fear and gratitude. His movies have earned more than three hundred Oscar nominations, and, at the annual awards ceremonies,
he has been thanked more than almost anyone else in movie history, ranking just after Steven Spielberg and right before God.

THE MEDIA WAS IN COLLUSION

TRUMP’S WAR AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING AND SEX CRIMES

CONSEQUENCES

Disney and Miramax could have their assets seized.

FLASHBACK-EXECUTIVE ORDER- ASSETS SEIZED

I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and corruption that have their source, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States, such as those committed or directed by persons listed in the Annex to this order, have reached such scope and gravity that they threaten the stability of international political and economic systems. Human rights abuse and corruption undermine the values that form an essential foundation of stable, secure, and functioning societies; have devastating impacts on individuals; weaken democratic institutions; degrade the rule of law; perpetuate violent conflicts; facilitate the activities of dangerous persons; and undermine economic markets. The United States seeks to impose tangible and significant consequences on those who commit serious human rights abuse or engage in corruption, as well as to protect the financial system of the United States from abuse by these same persons.

 

I, therefore, determine that serious human rights abuse and corruption around the world constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

 

I hereby determine and order:

Section 1. (a) All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in:

(i) the persons listed in the Annex to this order;

(ii) any foreign person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:

(A) to be responsible for or complicit in, or to have directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse;

(B) to be a current or former government official, or a person acting for or on behalf of such an official, who is responsible for or complicit in, or has directly or indirectly engaged in:

(1) corruption, including the misappropriation of state assets, the expropriation of private assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, or bribery; or

(2) the transfer or the facilitation of the transfer of the proceeds of corruption;

(C) to be or have been a leader or official of:

(1) an entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section relating to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or

(2) an entity whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order as a result of activities related to the leader’s or official’s tenure; or

(D) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section; and

(iii) any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General:

(A) to have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of:

(1) any activity described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section that is conducted by a foreign person;

(2) any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(3) any entity, including any government entity, that has engaged in, or whose members have engaged in, any of the activities described in subsections (ii)(A), (ii)(B)(1), or (ii)(B)(2) of this section, where the activity is conducted by a foreign person;

(B) to be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(C) to have attempted to engage in any of the activities described in subsections (iii)(A) or (B) of this section.

(b) The prohibitions in subsection (a) of this section apply except to the extent provided by statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted before the effective date of this order.

Sec. 2. The unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into the United States of aliens determined to meet one or more of the criteria in section 1 of this order would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, and the entry of such persons into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, is hereby suspended. Such persons shall be treated as persons covered by section 1 of Proclamation 8693 of July 24, 2011 (Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to United Nations Security Council Travel Bans and International Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions).

Sec. 3. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the types of articles specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in this order, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.

Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 include:

(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Sec. 5. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

Sec. 6. For the purposes of this order:

(a) the term “person” means an individual or entity;

(b) the term “entity” means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture, corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

Sec. 7. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to this order.

Sec. 8. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA and the Act as may be necessary to implement this order and section 1263(a) of the Act with respect to the determinations provided for therein. The Secretary of the Treasury may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States. All agencies shall take all appropriate measures within their authority to implement this order.

Sec. 9. The Secretary of State is hereby authorized to take such actions, including adopting rules and regulations, and to employ all powers granted to me by IEEPA, the INA, and the Act as may be necessary to carry out section 2 of this order and, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the reporting requirement in section 1264(a) of the Act with respect to the reports provided for in section 1264(b)(2) of that Act. The Secretary of State may, consistent with applicable law, redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States consistent with applicable law.

Sec. 10. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, is hereby authorized to determine that circumstances no longer warrant the blocking of the property and interests in property of a person listed in the Annex to this order, and to take necessary action to give effect to that determination.

Sec. 11. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to submit recurring and final reports to the Congress on the national emergency declared in this order, consistent with section 401(c) of the NEA (50 U.S.C. 1641(c)) and section 204(c) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1703(c)).

Sec. 12. This order is effective at 12:01 a.m., Eastern Standard Time, December 21, 2017.

Sec. 13. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.
