- MGM is bullying FBI brass to bend and mold the shooting investigation to their corporate will and needs.
- At almost every turn FBI results and Intel have to be cleared with MGM
- FBI agents doubt Jesus Campos’ gunshot story
( True Pundit ) A growing faction of FBI agents doubt Jesus Campos’ gunshot story that reportedly unfolded during the Oct. 1st Mandalay Bay massacre in Las Vegas.
Before we begin here, it is important to note we have dispatched a reporter to question Campos at his Las Vegas home several times. Our reporter could not get past the armed guard hired to deflect all media in and around his residence. Efforts to question Campos have netted little results and he apparently has gone into hiding again. The last time Campos vanished, he fled to Mexico literally hours after the shooting.
FBI agents are experiencing similar frustration in Las Vegas, where they allege MGM is bullying FBI brass to bend and mold the shooting investigation to their corporate will and needs. At almost every turn FBI results and Intel have to be cleared with MGM, FBI insiders said. Hence, the ever-changing timeline of the shooting by alleged killer Stephen Paddock.
And the now refusal to hold additional press briefings on the results of the shooting probe. Those have been shut down by MGM legal personnel, sources said. The media and the public are not entitled to have lingering and troubling questions addressed by public ‘safety’ officials who apparently now take their orders from a corporate gaming and entertainment conglomerate.
MGM Resorts, in short, is strong-arming and bullying the FBI led by Las Vegas FBI SAC Aaron Rouse, a disciple of embattled FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Rouse was appointed to the post by now-fired FBI Director James Comey.
If accurate — and there is little reason to doubt veteran federal law enforcement — this is certainly another black eye for the embattled FBI. We have already reported the Clark County Sheriff’s office is simply rubber stamping FBI decisions and has little autonomy of the probe.
- Obama Justice Department lawyers told FBI Uranium One whistleblower that “his reputation and liberty [was] in jeopardy” if he did not drop a lawsuit against the government.
Daily Caller reported:
A former FBI informant who blew the whistle on a high-profile bribery case involving a Russian energy company was intimidated by Obama administration lawyers into dropping a civil suit against the government last year, his attorney says.
Victoria Toensing, the lawyer for the informant, told The Daily Caller’s Vince Coglianese that Obama Justice Department lawyers told her client that “his reputation and liberty [was] in jeopardy” if he did not drop a lawsuit against the government.
On Wednesday, the Trump Justice Department released the informant from a confidentiality agreement, clearing the way for him to testify before several congressional committees about his undercover work at Uranium One, a Canada-based energy company that has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton and their family foundation.
In 2010, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), an inter-agency governmental committee that reviews applications for foreign purchases of companies, granted the Russia-owned energy company Rosatom the right to purchase Uranium One.
“The Russians have threatened him, and up until just last night the U.S. government has threatened him,” Toensing told Coglianese during an interview on WMAL’s “Mornings on the Mall.”
“He was told that if he didn’t dismiss the case his reputation and liberty were in jeopardy.”
FBI: GOVT. PAID RUSSIAN LAWYER WHO MET WITH TRUMP JR. AS FBI PAID TRUMP DOSSIER AUTHOR FOR POST-ELECTION INTEL
- FBI sources: Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya who met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower may have been paid by the U.S. government
- Christopher Steele, who compiled the bogus Trump dossier for Hillary Clinton, was paid at least $100,000 from FBI funds to continue gathering intelligence about Trump and Russia after election
Via True Pundit:
Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who spearheaded the Trump Tower meeting with the Trump campaign trio, was previously barred from entering the United Sates due to her alleged connections to the Russian FSB (the modern replacement of the cold-war-era KGB).
Yet mere days before the June meeting, Veselnitskaya was granted a rare visa to enter the United States from Preet Bharara, the then U.S. Attorney for the southern district of New York. Bharara could not be reached for comment and did not respond the a Twitter inquiry on the Russian’s visa by True Pundit.
Federal law enforcement sources said Bharara was simply following the orders of Attorney General Lynch, who lobbied the State Department to issue the disavowed Russian a B1/B2 non-immigrant visa. This permitted Veselnitskaya entry into the United States for the sole purpose of entrapping Trump associates to use as fuel to commission wiretaps, federal sources said.Veselnitskaya may have been paid as well by the U.S. government, FBI sources said. It was reported last week that Steele, who compiled the Trump dossier was paid at least $100,000 from FBI funds as well. But that came later, after the wiretapping was well underway.
Christopher Steele, who compiled the bogus Trump dossier created and spread by Hillary Clinton campaign against Trump, was paid at least $100,000 from FBI funds
Some of Steele’s allegations began circulating in Washington in the summer of 2016 as the FBI launched its counterintelligence investigation into possible connections between Trump associates and the Kremlin. Around that time, Steele shared some of his findings with the FBI.
After the election, the FBI agreed to pay Steele to continue gathering intelligence about Trump and Russia, but the bureau pulled out of the arrangement after Steele was publicly identified in news reports.
GAG ORDER LIFTED! DOJ AUTHORIZES FBI INFORMANT TO SPEAK WITH CONGRESS ON OBAMA-HILLARY URANIUM ONE SCANDAL
Gag order lifted: DOJ says informant can speak to Congress on Uranium One, Russia bribery case with Clinton links
( Fox News ) The Justice Department said Wednesday night that it had lifted a gag order on a former FBI informant involved in a high-profile Russia bribery case, clearing the individual to speak to Congress about Moscow’s Obama-era uranium deals in the U.S. market and other schemes.
In a statement, the department said it had authorized the informant to speak to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight Committee, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, in addition to select staffers.
The department said the informant could provide “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market,” including Russian company Rosatom, subsidiary Tenex, Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation.
Uranium One refers to the name of a Canada-based company with mines in the U.S. that was bought by Rosatom, a company backed by the Russian state. The State Department, then led by Hillary Clinton, was one of nine U.S. government agencies that had to approve the deal back in 2010.
All three congressional committees launched investigations after The Hill reported that the FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear officials were involved in fraudulent dealings – including extortion, bribery and kickbacks – as far back as 2009 in a case involving Rosatom’s subsidiary, Tenex. Congressional Republicans have since questioned how the Uranium One deal was approved the following year by an inter-agency committee, and sought to gain access to the informant.
Republicans also have raised concerns about efforts by interested parties to influence the Clintons – citing donations to the Clinton Foundation as well as a $500,000 speaking fee received in Russia by former President Bill Clinton, who reportedly met with Vladimir Putin around the time of the deal.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, tweeted Tuesday that the Justice Department should appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Uranium One deal.
- It is necessary to “better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn
Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and Rep. Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, chairman of the Oversight Committee, announced they will launch a probe into the Justice Department’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
They described it as necessary to “better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn.”
Other questions the Republican lawmakers said they want addressed revolve around the decision not to file criminal charges against Clinton, FBI’s timeline in respect to charging decisions, etc.
The House Judiciary tweeted the following announcement:
“Our justice system is represented by a blind-folded woman holding a set of scales. Those scales do not tip to the right or the left; they do not recognize wealth, power, or social status. The impartiality of our justice system is the bedrock of our republic and our fellow citizens must have confidence in its objectivity, independence, and evenhandedness. The law is the most equalizing force in this country. No entity or individual is exempt from oversight.
“Decisions made by the Department of Justice in 2016 have led to a host of outstanding questions that must be answered. These include, but are not limited to:
- FBI’s decision to publicly announce the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified information but not to publicly announce the investigation into campaign associates of then-candidate Donald Trump;
- FBI’s decision to notify Congress by formal letter of the status of the investigation both in October and November of 2016;
- FBI’s decision to appropriate full decision making in respect to charging or not charging Secretary Clinton to the FBI rather than the DOJ;
- FBI’s timeline in respect to charging decisions.
‘The Committees will review these decisions and others to better understand the reasoning behind how certain conclusions were drawn. Congress has a constitutional duty to preserve the integrity of our justice system by ensuring transparency and accountability of actions taken.”
REMOVE OBAMA DOJ NONDISCLOSURE AGREEMENT WITH FBI WHO HELPED UNCOVER URANIUM BRIBERY SCHEME – RON DeSANTIS
- FBI informant who helped uncover Hillary Clinton-Russia uranium bribery deal is “currently under a non-disclosure agreement that was signed with the Eric Holder Justice Department”
- Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) urged the Justice Department to remove nondisclosure agreement preventing a confidential former FBI informant from testifying
Ron DeSantis: FBI Informant Must Be Allowed to Speak on ‘Uranium One’ Deal
Lifezette by Kathryn Blackhurst
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) urged the Justice Department to remove a nondisclosure agreement preventing a confidential former FBI informant from testifying before Congress for the criminal probe into the Uranium One deal.
DeSantis, a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, said in an interview on Fox News on Sunday that he has spoken with the informant who “helped the FBI uncover this bribery scheme,” leading to bombshell reports about an Obama-era deal allowing a Russian-backed company to purchase a uranium firm that controls mines in the U.S.
“I’ve been able to speak with the confidential informant that helped the FBI uncover this bribery scheme. I’ve spoken with his attorney, and this informant wants to tell his story,” DeSantis told Fox News’ Leland Vittert. “But he’s currently under a non-disclosure agreement that was signed with the Eric Holder Justice Department.”
Noting that the informant “came forward” in 2016 but “was threatened with reprisal” from former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department, DeSantis said the public deserves to know what happened.
“Clearly it’s … in the public’s interest that this individual be able to tell this story to Congress. Because what you have, Leland, is you have the money that went to Bill Clinton for the speech, the half a million dollars, millions of dollars to the foundation from sources connected with Uranium One, and then you have the approval of the deal on the [Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States] CFIUS board, which Hillary Clinton was a member of in 2010,” DeSantis said.
