Hollywood Access Tapes Subject of Cohen FBI Raid

Published

on

(Via Zerohedge)


More details about the FBI raid on Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s hotel, home and office are slowly leaking out.

The New York Times reported that in addition to information about payoffs to two alleged Trump mistresses – former adult actress Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) and former playmate Karen MacDougal) – the FBI was searching for information related to the “Access Hollywood” tape, where Trump uttered the infamous phrase “grab her by the p***y”.

Specifically, the Feds were looking for evidence that Cohen tried to suppress damaging information about Trump during the campaign. The tape was published by the Washington Post a month before the election, and prompted many political pundits to write Trump off (something they would swiftly regret).

The Feds are also seeking information about the role National Enquirer publisher David Pecker played in purportedly silencing the women. It was revealed after the raid that Cohen is being investigated for bank fraud and possible campaign finance violations.

Investigators are trying to determine the precise nature of Cohen’s role during the campaign – he wasn’t an official member of the campaign staff (instead, he was still working for the Trump Organization) – as they seek to determine whether a payment to Daniels by Cohen constituted an illegal campaign contribution.

Cohen famously said under oath that he paid Daniels $130,000 – a payment she’s described as “hush money” – on his own accord, and totally independent of Trump.

Trump is furious over these revelations, the Times said, because they cross the “red line” that Trump delineated during an interview with the Times last summer – namely, that the prosecutor stay away from his business and his family’s financial dealings.

FEC Hit for ignoring Clinton DNC election scheme-Lawsuit

Published

on

A group known as The Committee to Defend the President, filed a complaint April 16 against the Federal Election Commision for ignoring what they call a Democrat National Committee “election scheme”.

EXCLUSIVE: The Hillary Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee allegedly used state chapters as strawmen to launder as much as $84 million in an effort to circumvent campaign donation limits, and the Federal Election Commission ignored complaints exposing the practice, a lawsuit filed Monday claims, according to the Press Release.

The group was once known as  Stop Hillary Pac, and they produced videos critical of Former First Lady, NY Senator, Secretary of State, and twice Presidential Candidate Hillary R. Clinton and her time in Government.

One video that was very effective against Clinton follows:

The group is now known as The Committee for Defending the President

MOST RECENT FEC DATA ON COMMITTEE TO DEFEND THE PRESIDENT

The group has over 2,000,000.00 on hand.

“The Clinton machine has escaped accountability for its illegal practices for far too long,” Ted Harvey, the committee chairman, said to Fox News. “After months of review, the FEC has refused to address the Clintons’ $84 million money laundering scheme that violated several campaign finance laws,” he said.

FORMER CLINTON CAMPAIGN MANAGER, ROBBIE MOOK ‘S MEMO CONFIRMS SCHEME

CNN REPORTED ON THE MOOK MEMO IN NOVEMBER

WATCH CNN VIDEO HERE

Donna Brazille admits she discovered the smoking gun from the Mook memo that the Fundraising was corrupt and she notified  Democrat Primary opponent, Senator Bernie Sanders.  So she knew. Sanders’ campaign knew.  Sanders filed complaints.

IT IS NOT A SURPRISE TO THE FEC, SO WHY NO ANSWER?

From the Legal Documents:

“This Complaint alleges an unprecedented, massive, nationwide multi-million dollar conspiracy among the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”); Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton’s joint fundraising committee (“JFC”), Hillary Victory Fund.

(“HVF”); Clinton’s presidential candidate committee, Hillary for America (“HFA”), 40 Democratic state parties, and an undetermined number of individual “super donors” to circumvent federal contribution limits and earmarking restrictions by effectively laundering nearly all contributions received by HVF through the state parties to the DNC, which contributed much of those funds to HFA, made coordinated expenditures with HFA, and otherwise granted control of those funds to HFA resulting in a de facto unlawful contribution.

As explained below, this scheme allowed the DNC to receive tens of millions of dollars in contributions far exceeding federal limits. ”

ORIGINALLY FILED IN DECEMBER

As first reported by Fox News in December, the CDP alleges in its complaint that about $84 million was funneled illegally from the DNC through state party chapters and back into the war chest of the Clinton campaign. The political action committee claims that even though the FEC acknowledged receipt of the complaint and claimed that an investigation would be conducted, the needle has barely moved.

The Lawsuit claims:

ACCORDING TO PUBLICLY AVAILABLE FEC REPORTS, CONTRIBUTIONS WERE CONSISTENTLY FUNNELED FROM THE
HILLARY VICTORY FUND THROUGH STATE PARTIES TO THE DNC

According to reports filed with the FEC by HVF, the DNC, and dozens of Democratic state parties, for more than a year, over 80 million dollars in contributions to HVF  were funneled through state parties to the DNC, which made coordinated expenditures with the Clinton campaign and was controlled by it.

From the Lawsuit documents,

“According to reports filed with the FEC, in each series of transactions, HVF disbursed contributions it received to its state party committee members (as required for JFCs) and those state parties received the funds the same day. HVF would disburse funds to up to 40 state parties at a time. That same day, or on occasion the very next day, each and every one of those state parties immediately contributed all of the funds to the DNC.

It appears virtually every single disbursement from HVF to a state party resulted in an immediate transfer of the same amount of funds from the state party to the DNC. Over 99% of funds transferred through HVF to state parties wound up at the DNC (which, as explained below, made coordinated expenditures with HFA and otherwise spent its funds subject to the oversight,
direction, and control of HFA)”

Recall former DNC chair, Donna Brazille’s book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House,  where she revealed:

“As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.

Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was. How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks.”

SUPPORTER SENATOR ELIZABETH  WARREN SAID CLINTON CONTROLLED DNC TOO

And she would know, she campaigned for Clinton, article HERE

“Locked hand-in-hand in front of a rapturous Ohio crowd, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren sealed a powerful alliance Monday that could help unify the Democratic Party and give Donald Trump nightmares.

The Massachusetts senator is on Clinton’s shortlist of potential vice presidential running mates, but campaigning with the presumptive Democratic nominee in Cincinnati, Warren demonstrated she will be a vital ally in any capacity.”

 

Senator Elizabeth Warren throws Clinton under the bus, say Clinton controlled the DNC recall:

Trump on the edge: Historic Non-military foreign policy victory in sight- DeNuked North Korea

Published

on

Ahead of a scheduled meeting between the President of the United States and the Leader of North Korea,  reports are hopeful of a historic victory for World Peace.  Donald J. Trump will meet with Kim Jong Un soon.

Recently Trump meet with the leader of Japan and reported very positive meetings regarding the concerns for the region over the instability of a Nuclear capable North Korea.

 

ART OF THE DEAL

Step One:

North Korea has dropped its long-held demand that the United States withdraw forces from South Korea in exchange for denuclearization, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Thursday.

The United States has about 28,000 troops stationed in South Korea, a presence that has long irked North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“North Korea has expressed willingness to give up its nuclear program without making (a) demand that the (US Forces Korea) forces withdraw from the Korean Peninsula,” Moon said in a meeting with the press, adding that any proposed troop withdrawal would be a “condition that the US cannot accept.”

Step Two:

North Korea has expressed its commitment to “complete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula and is not seeking conditions, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday, as the United States vowed to maintain “maximum pressure” on Pyongyang.

Moon said big-picture agreements about denuclearization, establishing a peace regime and normalization of relations between the two Koreas and the United States should not be difficult to reach through summits between the North and South, and between the North and the United States.

“I don’t think denuclearization has different meanings for South and North Korea,” Moon said during a lunch with chief executives of Korean media companies. “The North is expressing a will for a complete denuclearization.”

“They have not attached any conditions that the U.S. cannot accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops from South Korea,” he continued. “All they are talking about is the end of hostile policies against North Korea, followed by a guarantee of security.”

URGENCY

Media reports from 2017 covered what some people believed could be 200 North Koreans in a Nuclear accident, article HERE.

“Up to 200 workers could have been killed after a tunnel collapsed at North Korea’s nuclear test site, according to a media report.

Japanese broadcaster TV Asahi said around 100 people were trapped when the unfinished tunnel caved in at the Punggye-ri site, which lies south of the Mantapsan mountain, 50 miles from the border with China.

The Telegraph reported that the incident occurred on Oct. 10, citing South Korean news agency Yonhap.

Another 100 people could have died in a second collapse as they attempted to rescue their trapped colleagues, TV Asahi reported.”

ANTI-TRUMP MEDIA AND DEMOCRATS ARE SAD

Dictator and Obama- Flashback 2009:

President Obama issued a stern warning to North Korea , saying that it cannot go ahead with the planned launch of a long-range rocket with impunity.

However, Pyongyang was today pressing ahead with final preparations for the launch, which the US and its allies believe is a cover for a ballistic missile test. The countdown could begin as early as tomorrow,analysts believe.

Speaking in Strasbourg before the Nato summit, Obama said: “Should North Korea decide to take this action, we will work with all interested partners in the international community to take appropriate steps to let North Korea know that they cannot threaten the safety and stability of other countries with impunity.

“The response so far from the North Koreans has been not just unhelpful but has resorted to the sort of language that has led to North Korea’s isolation in the international community for a very long time,” Obama said.

Bombshell: Rosenstein says “Trump is not Focus of Mueller probe”

Published

on

Thursday, numerous media outlets reported that Rod Rosenstein had told President Donald J. Trump that he is not the focus for the investigation by Special Investigator, Robert Mueller Swan Mueller.  The source of the story is a Bloomberg reporter who posted on Twitter:

Rosenstein Told Trump He’s Not a Target in Mueller Probe, Sources Say

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told President Donald Trump last week that he isn’t a target of any part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, according to two people familiar with the matter.

 Rosenstein, who brought up the Mueller probe himself, offered the assurance during a meeting with Trump at the White House last Thursday, a development that helped tamp down the president’s desire to remove Rosenstein or Mueller, the people said.

Rosenstein’s message may have been based on a technicality. Trump may not officially be a target, but Mueller hasn’t ruled out making him one at some point in the future, according to a U.S. official with knowledge of the unfolding investigation.

‘Fairly Standard’

“I don’t know what it means. It is a fairly standard part of any investigation — trying to decide whether a person you’re encountering is a witness, a subject or a target,” former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump, said Thursday on CNN when asked what Rosenstein’s assurance to Trump means at this point.

A target is someone about whom an investigation and a grand jury “developed significant evidence — evidence sufficient to charge,” Comey said.
