Well, ever since those Wells executives were found guilty and went to jail for falsifying all of those fraudulent savings/checking accounts, they have really cleaned up their …..

Wait….what?  You mean no one went to jail for outright fraud?  Oh…okay, never mind then.

 

Used to be, folks robbed WF. Now, they are the robbers

Tacking insurance onto the loans were part of the bank’s “cross-selling” actice of offering products across different segments – which also included opening millions of credit card and bank accounts for people who never asked for them.
It gets better: the expense of the unneeded auto insurance (which covered collision damage) pushed some 274,000 Wells Fargo customers into delinquency and resulted in almost 25,000 wrongful vehicle repossessions. And the cherry on top: “among the Wells Fargo customers hurt by the practice were military service members on active duty.”
The mechanics of the fraud, via the New York Times:

Here is how the process worked: When customers financed cars with Wells Fargo, the buyers’ information would go to National General, which was supposed to check a database to see if the owner had insurance coverage. If not, the insurer would automatically impose coverage on the customers’ accounts, adding an extra layer of premiums and interest to their loans.
When customers who checked their bills saw the charges and notified Wells Fargo that they already had car insurance, the bank was supposed to cancel the insurance and credit the borrower with the amount that had been charged.

In some cases the bank did just that. In most cases, nobody noticed and the scheme continued: “The Oliver Wyman report indicated that many customers appear not to have notified Wells Fargo of the redundant insurance. This may have been because their payments were deducted automatically from their bank accounts and they did not spot the charges.”
The bank ended up paying $185 million to regulators and settled a $142 million class-action lawsuit for more than three million fake accounts opened up by Wells Fargo employees to meet sales quotas.
The 38,000 erroneous letters were allegedly part of a “coding mistake” caught by the vendor responsible for the communications, reports the New York Times.
“We will work with our vendor to ensure these customers receive the appropriate communication — including any refunds they’re eligible for,” said Bank spokeswoman Catherine Pulley, who also confirmed that the bank mistakenly sent a check to a non-customer.
The bank acknowledged that they signed up hundreds of thousands of customers for auto insurance they did not need – which the bank says they will pay a total of $80 million to make amends to affected customers.
“We’ll continue working very closely with our vendor and we expect the remediation to be substantially complete by the end of second quarter, 2018,” said Pulley.
What’s going on at Wells Fargo?
On top of the credit card, bank account, and auto loan “cross-selling” scams, the beleagured bank also offered refunds to for up to 110,000 customers who were unfairly charged fees to lock in interest rates on mortgages.
Even the way Wells Fargo is offering the refunds sounds shady:

The Wall Street Journal, citing people close to the process, said the bank planned to send letters to customers informing them that they must opt into the possible refund, and estimates that half or fewer will open their mail and respond. Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Goyda said details of the outreach effort were still being worked out but that it would include follow-up phone calls when appropriate and “not just a one-off mailing.” –NYT

In early February, the Fed said it would bar Wells from expanding its assets beyond their end-2017 level until it “sufficiently improves its governance and controls.”
The Fed also demanded that Wells replace three current board members by April and a fourth board member by the end of the year. The release says the board of directors must also improve its oversight practices. The bank will not be allowed to grow until the Fed approves a detail plan of action to be submitted by the bank.

“The enforcement action we are taking today will ensure that Wells Fargo will not expand until it is able to do so safely and with the protections needed to manage all of its risks and protect its customers,” Yellen said in a statement. “The enforcement action we are taking today will ensure that Wells Fargo will not expand until it is able to do so safely and with the protections needed to manage all of its risks and protect its customers.”

As we wrote several weeks ago, Wells pursued a business strategy that prioritized growth over managing risks and offering sufficient oversight of the firm’s lending practices. As a result, the firm cheated customers of its auto-lending division and also overcharged some mortgage borrowers. And that was AFTER the cross-selling scandal mentioned above. The bank is also facing a criminal probe into its foreign-exchange desk, which allegedly overcharged its large corporate clients. The firm also lacked “an effective firm-wide risk management framework in place that covered all key risks.” This, the Fed says, prevented the serious compliance breakdowns from being adequately reviewed by the board.
Meanwhile, in January we showed that Wells posted the worst mortgage numbers since the crisis – so maybe the Fed’s new “growth restrictions” on the bank weren’t needed after all.

The Coming Financial Cataclysm

BIP WORLDVIEW

By BIP

Dilapidated HouseAccording to many independent financial analysts, the financial cataclysm looming on the horizon will be worse, much worse than the one that ripped through in 2008. As a matter of fact, 2008 will dwarf by comparison.

Let’s grasp the magnitude of what happened in 2008.

According to Forbes, the Federal Reserve in 2008 – under the oh! so responsible watch of the Ashkenazi Jew Ben ‘Helicopter’ Bernanke – single-handedly allocated “over $16 Trillion to corporations and banks internationally, purportedly for ‘financial assistance.’ ”

Other sources put it at close to $30 Trillion, twice the size of America’s GDP. And none of that money has been accounted for. These transactions were only discovered after a “quick audit” that then Congressman Ron Paul miraculously managed to squeeze out of the Fed when he was beating the drum trying to get Americans to pay attention to the secretive bank.

I personally know people who were scammed out hundreds of thousands of dollars – must be nice – who were cleaned out not on XIV, which was purposely crashed last week, but VIX, what with all their endless reverse splits and manipulations.

Update: In a quite shockingly fast reaction, WSJ reports that a U.S. regulator is looking into whether prices linked to the widely watched Cboe Volatility Index have been manipulated, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority is scrutinizing whether traders placed bets on S&P 500 options in order to influence prices for VIX futures, the people said.
Proving manipulation is difficult, lawyers and academics say. The regulator must prove that a person or firm had the ability to move prices and did so intentionally. In addition, the regulator must show that the person intended to create artificial prices, said Craig Pirrong, a professor of finance at The University of Houston who has written about futures manipulation.
*  *  *
As we detailed earlier, we first exposed the “conspiracy fact” that VIX manipulation runs the entire market back in 2015 as the ubiquitous VIX-crushing algo-runs coincided with a non-stop shorting of VIX futures by a seemingly bottomless-pocketed player in the market… which happened to coincide with the arrival of Simon Potter as the head of The New York Fed’s trading desk…

Probably just a coincidence, right?
Then, in May of last year we academic confirmation of the rigged nature the US equity market’s volatility complex, when a scientific study found “systemic VIX auction settlement manipulation.”
Two University of Texas at Austin finance professors found “large transient deviations in VIX prices” around the morning auction, “consistent with market manipulation.”

​Griffin and Shams calculate that “the size of VIX futures with open interest at settlement is on average 5.7 times the size SPX options traded at settlement, and it is 7.3 times for VIX options that are in-the-money at settlement.”
So if you are a trader who owns a lot of the market in VIX futures, you could push around a large dollar value of futures by trading a small dollar value in options. This is particularly true because the S&P option volume is divided among many strikes, and the illiquid deep out-of-the-money S&P 500 options have a big influence on the VIX: You can move the price of those options a lot with relatively small trades, and those price changes have a disproportionate effect on the VIX.
While this was immediately played down by CBOE, and the subject quickly disappeared from the headlines – because VIX was dropping incessantly and stocks were going up, up, up – until VIX flash-crashed rather awkwardly into the morning auction settlement in mid-December, bring the chatter of manipulation back to life
Bloomberg data show that of the 10 biggest gaps between the VIX settlement value and its closing level the night before, five came in 2017, including December’s, which was the biggest discount in 11 years.

On monthly expirations, settlement occurred outside the VIX’s same-day trading range 42 percent of the time last year, the most since 2005. The average occurrence was 15 percent in the decade through 2016.

While a lot of innocent explanations exist, “really, it is a mystery,” said Pravit Chintawongvanich, the head of derivatives strategy for Macro Risk Advisors.
“Some people rightly get confused about why the settle is seemingly out of context with the market.”

It actually seems like VIX manipulation is an inside-joke, as Hennessy of IPS says in a market dominated by professionals, everyone plays at his own risk.

“Like any market it is susceptible to manipulation by large participants but I think that most VIX traders understand that,” he said.
“2017 saw many settlements that came in points away from the previous day’s close value, and at this point you have to understand the risk you are taking on if you choose to let your options/futures position go into settlement.”

But now, Bloomberg reports a whistleblower has come forward telling U.S. regulators that a scheme to manipulate the VIX costs investors hundreds of millions of dollars a month.

In a letter Monday (see below) that his client found a flaw that allows traders “with sophisticated algorithms to move the VIX up or down by simply posting quotes on S&P options and without needing to physically engage in any trading or deploying any capital.” Billions in purportedly ill-gotten profits have been scooped up by “unethical electronic option market makers,” according to the letter.
The client wasn’t identified by name. He’s held “senior positions at some of the largest investment firms in the world,” according to the letter written by Jason Zuckerman of Zuckerman Law, who has appeared on Washingtonian magazine’s list of top whistle-blower lawyers in the nation’s capital.
Crucially, according to the letter, the whistleblower blames this VIX manipulation as the driver of last week’s volatility complex collapse:

“We contend that the liquidation of the VIX ETPs last week was not due solely to flaws in the design of these products, but instead was driven largely by a rampant manipulation of the VIX index,”

CBOE quickly responded with a denial:

“We take our regulatory responsibilities and the oversight of our markets very seriously,”
“This letter is replete with inaccurate statements, misconceptions and factual errors, including a fundamental misunderstanding of the relationship between the VIX Index, VIX futures and volatility” exchange-traded products.
“As a result of these errors, we feel the conclusionary statements contained in this letter lack credibility.”

But, as we concluded previously, you don’t even have to intervene over some long period to keep options prices up; you can just submit bids in the pre-opening auction once a month and move the settlement price for that month.
There is a sort of hierarchy of manipulability in markets. At the top is Libor manipulation: Trillions of dollars of derivatives settled based on Libor, but Libor was calculated by essentially asking banks “what should Libor be?” The banks didn’t even have to do any trading in order to push the number around; manipulation was, in effect, costless. (Later, with the fines, it was costly.)
At the bottom is, like, manipulating the price of a stock by trading that stock. There are cases of it! It’s a thing. But it is a dumb thing; it really shouldn’t work. If you buy a stock, you will push the price up, sure. But to make any money you then have to sell the stock, which should push the price right back down.
But if you are going to manipulate a tradable market — as opposed to a made-up one like Libor — then VIX looks pretty tempting.

The product that you trade (S&P 500 options) is different from the product where you make your money (VIX futures and options), and the trading market is in the relevant sense smaller than the derivative market: You can move a lot of value in VIX products by trading a small amount of value, in a confined period of time, in the underlying market. So you can cheerfully lose money executing the manipulation — trading the S&P options — and make back more in the derivative.

The question is – why did the whistleblower come forward now – a week after the total and utter collapse of XIV and the short-VIX debacle?

Blame-scaping VIX manipulation for ‘volocaust’ but remaining silent during years of VIX-monkey-hammering sounds more like ‘bad-losers’ – no matter how much we believe in the manipulation of this ‘tail’ that inevitably wags the entire market ‘dog’.
As a reminder, it is not just traders that are potentially “manipulating” VIX, The Fed’s new chair Jay Powell admitted in January that they carry a short-volatility position. We wonder if they took the loss last week or unwound the position?

Proof that EVERYTHING IS AWESOME has been a tissue of lies since 2008

Disgraced Dutch Foreign Minister Resigns After Admitting Lying About Putin’s “Greater Russia” Comment

Update: The Netherlands’ foreign minister was facing a tough debate in Parliament Tuesday following his admission that he lied about attending a meeting hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin at his country retreat more than a decade ago.

But, Minister Zijlstra just confirmed he is stepping down at the beginning of the debate in the House of Representatives.
He called it “by far the biggest mistake of my political life, the Netherlands deserves a foreign minister who is beyond any doubt.”
As FD.nl reports, on Monday, the coalition seemed to want to support Zijlstra. But that became difficult when the Volkskrant reported that Zijlstra not only lied about the source of Putin’s message – not he, but then Shell CEO Jeroen van der Veer was present at the meeting – but that Zijlstra also misunderstood the content of the message interpreted.
*  *  *
In a shocking admission, Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra said he lied when he claimed to have heard President Vladimir Putin describing an ambition to unify Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltic states and Kazakhstan into a single super-state to rival the influence of the former Soviet Union.
Zijlstra claimed at a party conference in 2016 that he had overheard Putin outlining the grand plan for a “Greater Russia” in 2006 during a gathering of businessmen. At the time, Zijlstra was working at Shell, RT reports.

Dutch
The dead eyes of cruelty and lies

In the original retelling of the story, Zijlstra said he had been in a back room of a dacha (country house) when he heard Putin define “Great Russia” as “Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and the Baltic states,” adding that “Kazakhstan was nice to have.”
The story was questioned by the newspaper Volkskrant, however, which quickly discovered that Zijlstra had not even attended the 2006 business meeting in Russia, despite being part of the Shell delegation. When confronted about this, the minister acknowledged that he had lied, and said he was simply trying to protect a source.

“I made the decision that this is an important geopolitical story with serious implications,” he said.
I put myself in the story to make sure that the revelations weren’t about the person who was actually there. Because that could have had implications for him or his company.”

Zijlstra insisted he was told as much from a source whom he refused to name. The newspaper itself says the source was Jeroen van der Veer, who was the CEO of Shell at the time.
The revelation comes at an awkward time for the foreign minister. Zijlstra, who took office in October 2017, is set to visit Moscow this week to meet with his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov. Geert Wilders’ opposition right-wing Party for Freedom has called for a parliamentary debate about Zijlstra’s integrity before he leaves. Zijlstra told Volkskrant that he informed Prime Minister Mark Rutte about his conduct several weeks ago.
“Greater Russia” is an amorphous term usually used to describe the historic core of the Russian state, roughly corresponding to the territory of medieval Russia in the 16th century – the beginning of the reign of Ivan the Terrible, who was the first of Russia’s great expansionist rulers. The word “greater” is meant as a description of spiritual significance rather than physical size. The same term was applied to the core territories of some other countries, like Greater Armenia, Greater Walachia or Greater Poland.

Current financial crisis predicted in 1981 movie Rollover

Intentionally crashing the financial system by strangling the money supply

A little over three weeks ago, I became aware of a sudden and dramatic change in the US Banking System that made my stomach sick.  I “sat” on this story for almost three weeks hoping what I found was some type of anomaly or data error.  It’s not.
Bankers have almost completely stopped lending . . . . TO EACH OTHER.
The plunge in “InterBank Lending” was so sudden and so substantial that it looks as though it is actually a PLAN, not happenstance or situationally appropriate.
It LOOKS like the Bankers are intentionally choking the US Economy and they’re doing so at levels far FAR worse than what took place during the “Fiscal Crisis” of 2007-08.  
For more than 45 years, the Federal Reserve has tracked virtually E V E R Y aspect of banking in the United States. They literally look at EVERY financial metric and provide incredible amounts of public reporting to anyone willing to spend time on the Federal Reserve Electronic Data (FRED) web site.
As your trusted media servant, I peruse vast amounts of information every day to keep you abreast of what’s taking place, and give you insight as to how and why certain things happen.  So when I undertook my usual perusal of FRED and saw what I am about to show you, I was shocked.

INTERBANK LENDING

First, let me explain what INTERBANK lending is.  The interbank lending market is a market in which banks extend loans to one another for a specified term. Most interbank loans are for maturities of one week or less, the majority being overnight. Such loans are made at the interbank rate (also called the overnight rate if the term of the loan is overnight).

A sharp decline in transaction volume in this market was a major contributing factor to the collapse of several financial institutions during the financial crisis of 2007.

Banks are required to hold an adequate amount of liquid assets, such as cash, to manage any potential bank runs by clients. If a bank cannot meet these liquidity requirements, it will need to borrow money in the interbank market to cover the shortfall. Some banks, on the other hand, have excess liquid assets above and beyond the liquidity requirements. These banks will lend money in the interbank market, receiving interest on the assets.
The interbank rate is the rate of interest charged on short-term loans between banks. Banks borrow and lend money in the interbank lending market in order to manage liquidity and satisfy regulations such as reserve requirements. The interest rate charged depends on the availability of money in the market, on prevailing rates and on the specific terms of the contract, such as term length. There is a wide range of published interbank rates, including the federal funds rate (USA), the LIBOR (UK) and the Euribor (Eurozone).
Having now explained what INTERBANK LENDING is, and how it is  H U G E L Y important for those funds to be available so banks can go about their daily business without running afoul of the law or Depositor needs, take a look at the FRED Data for INTERBANK LENDING for the last twelve months: (Click image to enlarge)

Did you see the problem?  Let me point it out:

Yes. You see that correctly.  INTERBANK LENDING CAME TO A VIRTUAL HALT, plunging from $68.034 BILLION for the week of December 27, to a terrifying level of  $13.237 Billion as of January 3, 2018.  That’s a DROP of EIGHTY-ONE PERCENT (81%) in one week.
Of course, some folks may have a knee-jerk rection to this and say something like “Hey Hal, it was the week between Christmas and New Years. Business was slow. Don’t worry about it.”
OK.  But this has never . . . .  and I can prove N E V E R . . . happened before!
To show you how utterly extraordinary this is, take a look at 45 years of INTERBANK LENDING from the FRED reports:


Going all the way back to 1973, INTERBANK LENDING has never —-   N E V E R — been this low.  Not even in the “Recession” of 2008-2009 ! ! ! !
Each of those years had a week between Christmas and New Years.  NOT ONCE IN 45 YEARS did the Interbank Lending grind to a halt as it has now.
Let me put  this in perspective for you.  As of January 3, 2018, the Interbank Lending is about $13 Billion for the week.  The FRED Data goes back to January 3, 1973 at which time it was $29 Billion.
Therefore, 45 years later. in an economy that is much, MUCH bigger, the Interbank Lending has collapsed to about 1/2 of what it was in 1973.

WHY?

What happened to cause this?  Good question.  And it is a question that NO ONE in the Banking Community seems willing to speak with me about.
For those unfamiliar, I live in New Jersey, about three miles due west of the Empire State Building in midtown Manhattan, New York City. I can pull my car out of my driveway and be in midtown Manhattan in minutes (barring traffic!).
We’ve got ALL the banks here; ALL of the biggest, most powerful, most influential banks.
We’ve got back-office Bank Operations occupying entire skyscrapers.  Tens-of-thousands of people in the Banking industry . . . . and I know a LOT of those people, socially and professionally.  NONE of them will talk about this.  Not a peep.  Nothing.
Even the Federal Reserve told me “no comment.”
THAT is troubling to me.  (Story continues below Ad)

Usually, no matter what the story, someone . . .  usually quite a few someones . . . . are willing to talk,  even if it’s off-the-record.  Not on this topic.  Lips are sealed.
That tells me “trouble.”  It also tells me that the recent major swings in the Stock Markets are directly related to this.

GOLD? Nope!

If Interbank Lending has suddenly stopped . . . . because Bankers have DECIDED to stop lending to each other (as opposed to not trusting each other), then it stands to reason that Banks which NEED liquidity to meet regulations and cash requirements, would have to get that cash from somewhere else.  The easiest place: The Stock Markets . . . . the Banks can sell-off stocks they have acquired and use the cash to bolster themselves.
This makes a lot of sense when you consider that, on Friday, February 2 (one month into the collapse of InterBank Lending)  the Stock Market fell 666 points.  If this was due to economic worries by the general public, we would expect to see a rise in the price of Gold.  It is well established that when Investors are worried about the future, they buy Gold.  But that didn’t happen.
On Thursday February 1 – the day BEFORE the 666 Drop in Stocks, Gold closed at $1,349.46, which marked the high for the week. Friday opened with the price of gold slightly off at $1,345.35, and then the yellow metal pulled back to end the week at $1,333.39.  The price of gold WENT DOWN as STOCKS WENT DOWN.
So the money pouring OUT of the Stock Market was NOT going into Gold!  The cash was going somewhere else.  But where?
Days later, on Monday, February 5 – the first open market day since the 666 plunge, The Dow Jones industrial average plunged more than 1,100 more points as stocks took their worst loss in six and a half years.
Between Friday and Monday, those two days of steep losses erased the market’s gains from the start of this year and ended a period of record-setting calm for stocks.
But again, Gold wasn’t phased. Gold closed at $1339.41, up a measly six dollars and two cents ($6.02) from the Friday before!
To me, this is proof that the hundreds-of-billions of dollars coming out of the Stock Market on Friday, February 2 and again on Monday, February 5 is NOT due to Investors seeking safety.  The money is going somewhere else.

SPECULATION

Now, I am not a licensed financial planner and cannot offer financial advice.  All I am doing here is my job as a Reporter/Journalist/Radio Host, to present the facts and offer my personal views which are clearly evident on their face.  DO NOT MAKE ANY FINANCIAL DECISIONS BASED ON WHAT I PUBLISH HERE.  Consult with a Licensed Financial Expert before making any financial decisions.
Having said that, I still must ask: Why has the Interbank Lending ground to a virtual halt and where is the money going from all the Stock market sales?
It seems to me that either:

1) Banks are selling-off their own Stocks to get cash to sustain themselves (very bad sign) OR . . . . .
2) Someone is pulling HUGE amounts of cash OUT of US Banks and they are scrambling to survive. (Much worse), or
3) The Bankers have decided they don’t like new found American Nationalism and are deliberately choking our economy to force a Globalist Agenda upon our President and our people by breaking our economy and saying Globalization is our only hope.

Could this be a situation that mimics the 1981 movie with Jane Fonda, Chris Christopherson and Hume Cronin entitled” ROLLOVER?”  The situation being reported in this post could very well be the start of real-life efforts portrayed in that movie!
You folks had best prepare, right now.  Just in case.  Have emergency cash (to survive, not to pay bills) emergency food, emergency fuel for cars, trucks, generators. Extra medicines you may need to survive. and such.

SANCTUARY STATE CALIFORNIA: MAN CAUGHT SMUGGLING 77 ILLEGAL ALIENS HAS C…

“Dossier” against Trump

As most the world knows by now, a plane crashed in Russia this morning a few minutes after takeoff, killing everyone aboard. 
As Russian authorities released passenger names on the official Death list, several of those now-deceased names raised immediate “red flags” because they appear to be directly connected to the Hillary Clinton / Barack Obama UraniumOne Conspiracy and to the (fake) “Russian Dossier” used to smear President Trump.
Now that they’ve been caught, it appears to many that “the Deep State” is cleaning house and getting rid of any loose ends who might testify!
Sergei Millian, a Belarus-born businessman who briefly worked with the Trump Organization and was reportedly a key source in the explosive dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump and Russia, was in the spotlight following release of testimony before the House Intelligence Committee.
Glenn Simpson, who cofounded the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, told lawmakers that a trip Trump Organization representatives took to Moscow several years ago had come onto the firm’s radar as part of their research into Trump’s business history.  The trip was organized by Sergei Millian, Simpson said. He said Millian “came up in connection with Chris’ work as one of the people around Trump who had a Russian background.” Chris is a reference to Christopher Steele, the former British intelligence officer hired by Fusion to research Trump’s Russia ties.  (Story continues below Ad)

This Russian Businessman Sergei Millian goes by another name; Sergey Panchenko.

Sergey Panchenko just happens to be one of the dead passengers in today’s Russian plane crash that killed 71 people.                                         
Also dead in today’s plane crash is Ivanov Vyacheslav the CFO of Rosatom who is involved in Hillary’s Uranium One deal with Russia back in 2009 under Barack Obama.
There are other names on the list which correspond to other persons in UraniumOne and in high-level Russian government circles such as Oil and Energy development.  These names are being verified and additional news stories will be published about them.
For now, at least two people known to be directly involved the UraniumOne “deal” and the Russian Dossier are now apparently dead and cannot testify to anyone about anything.  How convenient.

Passenger List

UPDATE FEBRUARY 12 @ 2:29 PM EST — 

Here is a photo of the Rosatom/UraniumOne Executive reportedly killed in the plane crash over the weekend in Russia:

I can now show you via the image above that the man whose face is circled is the alleged Rosatom Executive that MULTIPLE SOURCES have claimed to me, was targeted in the deadly plane crash that left 71 dead in Russia.
Here is the alleged victim’s Linked-In Profile:

Direct Link: https://www.linkedin.com/in/vyacheslav-ivanov-151513
For those of you who don’t know what Rosatom is, it’s the Russian nuclear company involved in Hillary’s Uranium One deal in 2009 in the early part of the Obama administration.                                
Many sources with whom I have spoken are claiming the plane crash to be “a hit” and the rumor mill is running wild alleging Hillary and the US Deep State was willing to kill 71 individuals to cover their tracks with Uranium One…Possibly making sure that Rosatom’s Executive reportedly killed in the plane crash couldn’t testify against Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton and those connected to her APPEAR TO SOME PEOPLE to be trying to protect themselves from being held accountable in one of the largest acts of betrayal against America.

Barack Obama unveiled his official portrait as painted by artist Kehinde Wiley at the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC on Monday.

“Wiley typically portrays people of color posing as famous figures in Western art,” the Portrait Gallery said of his work. “Through this practice, he challenges the visual rhetoric of power that is dominated by elite white men.”

“Barack Obama said he admired how Wiley’s photos ‘challenge our conventional views of power and privilege.'”, NPR reports.


Only a satanist would paint such evil
Satanic racist, using Illuminati hand sign, to reveal his coven affiliation. Their way of saying, hey, I’m one of the damned. And he is, in more ways than one.


Part of challenging the “power” of white people evidently involves angry black women decapitating white women, which Wiley has a fixation for:



Here’s the background on the piece from the North Carolina Museum of Art:

Known for his monumental portraits of young black men, placed in historical poses and settings appropriated from Old Master paintings, Kehinde Wiley critiques the racism of art history while also commenting on contemporary street culture and masculine identity. Reinventing classical portraiture and questioning who is represented in the portraits found in museums worldwide, Wiley states, “The whole conversation of my work has to do with power and who has it.”

Judith and Holofernes is from Wiley’s most recent body of work and his first series of paintings to feature female subjects. Wiley uses “street casting” to find his models—walking city streets and asking ordinary people if they would pose for a portrait. He met the model for this painting, Treisha Lowe, at Fulton Mall, a pedestrian shopping street in downtown Brooklyn. This painting references a specific art-historical work, a 17th-century painting by Giovanni Baglione, Judith and the Head of Holofernes (1608). The subject is taken from the apocryphal Old Testament Book of Judith, in which a Jewish town is under attack by the Assyrian army led by the general Holofernes. Judith, a widow from the town, goes to Holofernes under the pretense of helping him defeat the Jews. After he falls asleep, she cuts his head off with his own sword, and the town defeats the army. Wiley translates this image of a courageous, powerful woman into a contemporary version that resonates with fury and righteousness.

Wiley takes obvious artistic license with the story—Holofernes is represented by a woman’s head, and Judith wears a gown designed by Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. This new rendition can be interpreted on many different levels, including racial and gender identity and inequity, the representation of women throughout art history, and society’s ideals for beauty. In Wiley’s words, “I am painting women in order to come to terms with the depictions of gender within the context of art history. One has to broaden the conversation . . . This series of works attempts to reconcile the presence of black female stereotypes that surrounds their presence and/or absence in art history, and the notions of beauty, spectacle, and the ‘grand’ in painting.”

Imagine if President Trump had his official portrait painted by a white artist known for his portraits of white women decapitating black women.

Elon Musk, Rockets, SpaceX & Other Frauds

A senior White House official accused Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) of intentionally sabotaging the House Intel Committee’s Democratic response to the four-page “FISA memo” prepared by staffers for Committee chairman Devin Nunes.
Appearing on NBC’s Meet The Press,” White House legislative director Marc Short said that Schiff included confidential sources and methods in his 10-page rebuttal which he knew would require redaction – setting the stage for Democrats to cry foul.
a
We believe Congressman Schiff intentionally put in there methods and sources that he knew would need to be redacted. And if we redacted it, there would be an outcry that says the White House is trying to edit it,” Short said. “So, we said take it back, work with the FBI, clean it up and we’ll release it.”
Democrats will likely point to the fact that the White House ignored DOJ warnings not to release the Nunes memo without redactions, calling it “extraordinarily reckless” without a DOJ review. That said, the FBI reportedly wanted names redacted from the Nunes memo, while the White House claims that sources and methods are divulged in the Schiff memo.

Rep. Schiff responded, tweeting “Mr. President, what you call “political” are actually called facts, and your concern for sources and methods would be more convincing if you hadn’t decided to replease the GOP memo (“100%”) before reading it and over the objections of the FBI.

In fact, the FBI did review the Nunes memo and only wanted names redacted, according to journalist Sara Carter:

Marc Short effectively confirmed this on “Meet The Press,” telling the panel that the FBI’s concern over the Republican memo wasn’t over sources and methods, rather, the agency didn’t want the names of its agents involved in “FISAgate” exposed.

“There were not sources and methods of concern in that memo. There was concern of us releasing it because they didn’t want the same transparency,” Short said of the FBI.

Democrats say that the four-page memo released by GOP members of the House Intelligence Committee paints an incomplete picture of the FBI’s conduct while engaging in counterintelligence operations against then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election.
A few relevant points in the timeline…
Recall that Donald Trump was considered a joke when he announced his run for presidency. In fact, WikiLeaks emails reveal that the DNC elevated Trump to help Clinton win – thinking there’s no way he would win in a final runoff vs. Hillary.
In April, 2016, the FBI is contacted by the DNC to report that they had been hacked. They hire cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike, which determines it was Russian intelligence who conducted the breach
Perhaps sensing that the DNC and Clinton were about to be majorly exposed, and that Trump actually had a chance of winning the White House, Fusion GPS begins working for the Clinton campaign and the DNC in April, 2016 to provide opposition research on then-candidate Donald Trump. The deal between Clinton, the DNC and Fusion GPS is sealed by Marc Elias, a lawyer representing the DNC and Clinton.
Two months later…
June 15, 2016, Hacker “Guccifer 2.0” takes credit for the DNC hack. Later analysis would disprove this, as the CrowdStrike failed (or chose not) to catch that the DNC files were copied at 22.6 MB/s, all but confirming that the files had to have been copied locally by an inside source. Many have speculated that DNC IT staffer Seth Rich, whose murder is still unsolved, was the source of the emails provided to WikiLeaks.
Five days later…
June 20, 2016, former UK spy Christopher Steele – commissioned by Fusion GPS, (which was commissioned by Clinton and the DNC), files “The Dossier” – the first of 17 memos which relies on senior Kremlin officials and makes salacious and unverified claims against Donald Trump.
Of note – the FBI had worked with Steele for many years, however they severed their relationship after Steele went to the press with allegations contained within his dossiers.
On October 19, 2016, the FBI used Steele’s unverified dossier to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to spy on one-time Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. The warrant allowed the agency to also surveil anyone page was in communication with – including members of the Trump campaign.
January 11, 2017 – with Trump having won the election, BuzzFeed publishes the Steele memo, and the country has been steeped in “Russiagate” ever since.
We now know: 
– Steele’s unverified dossier played a critical role in obtaining approval from the FISA court to carry out surveillance of Carter Page and “unmask” members of the Trump campaign
– The FBI used a Yahoo News article written by Michael Isikoff to support the FISA application – however the Isikoff article contained information provided by Steele. In other words, the FBI made it appear to the FISA court that two separate sources supported their application, when in fact they both came from Steele
(interestingly, Isikoff also wrote a hit piece  to discredit an undercover FBI informant who testified to Congress last week about millions of dollars in bribes routed to the Clinton Foundation by Russian nuclear officials. Small world!)
– Steele was paid by Clinton, the DNC and the FBI for the same information
– The FBI and DOJ made minimal disclosures to the FISA court about the dossier’s political origins – mentioning in a footnote that a law firm paid for it

“FBI noted to a vaguely limited extent the political origins of the dossier. In footnote 8 the FBI stated that the dossier information was compiled pursuant to the direction of a law firm who had hired an “identified U.S. person” — now known as Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS.” –Grassley Memo

– Despite terminating their relationship with Steele over leaking to the media, the FBI vouched for Steele’s reputation in the FISA application in order to overcome the fact that most of the dossier’s contents were unable to be verified.
– Signing off on the FISA applications for the FBI were James Comey (three times) and Andrew McCabe. Signing off for the DOJ were Sally Yates, Data Boente and current Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein
We look forward to the eventual release of the Schiff memo – however it’s clear that the Democrats are simply going to point to the redactions and say “see, they covered up our proof!”

Cryptocurrency Lender DavorCoin Defrauds Investors Out Of Millions

Originally published by iBankCoin
After promising big returns, Scottsdale, AZ-based cryptocurrency lender DavorCoin left investors with virtually zeroed out accounts – following a similar wipeout of BitConnect.
a The scheme was simple; investors would lend the cryptocurrency operators real money, for which they would receive interest on their loans in the form of proprietary “DavorCoins” (DAV), which promised an interest rate as high as 48%. The site’s “Lending and profit calculator” suggested at the end of January that an investor lending $30,000 in davorcoin who agrees to lock funds up for 120 days may earn $513 per day, $3,591 per week, $15,390 per month, and $104,217 upon “capital release day” on August 23, 2018.
The company was also offering a “WELCOME TO THE ‘BE A MILLIONAIRE’ LENDING LOTTERY!!!” in a Medium.com post, adding “We will offer an amazing $1,000,000 to someone from the Davor community and many more prizes!”
Sounds legit, right?
Things were going swimmingly until cryptocurrency prices began to crash in January. After BitConnect was shut down for “illegally and fraudulently offering investments in a cryptocurrency lending program” subject to the Securities act, DavorCoin responded, saying “This does not change anything for us,” adding that DavorCoin is now “the number one lending platform in the world !!”
Shortly thereafter the price of DAV went from $177 to under a penny in less than three weeks – amid receiving a Cease and Desist from the state of Texas, alleging a variety of fraud offences in connection to DavorCoin’s offerings – as well as “misleading and deceptive statements.”
And then people had issues selling their DAV coins:

Investors on Facebook and Twitter bemoaned their losses. One investor who had loaned the company $4,000 said they were left with just $9. Another said that their $20,000 loan dissolved into $23.50 upon cashout.
On February 7, DavorCoin issued a statement ending their lending program, stating “There will be certainly winners and losers in this project, as in many high-risk investments. This is also true for the whole cryptocurrency market.”

According to a December survey, over 18% of respondents said they bought bitcoin on credit. Of those, 22% said that they had not paid off the debt despite virtual currencies reaching all time highs. And of those who hadn’t paid back the money borrowed to purchase crypto, 70% said they believed that owning Bitcoin is worth the interest expense.

Domestic Terrorism Bill Targets Patriot Groups and Citizen Militias

 Their Goal is to label all violent deaths of brown race people, Muslims and Jews as Acts of Terror by “White Supremacist Patriots”, including deaths in the past. Thus target white people as terrorists. 

By Joe Jarvis Via The Daily Bell

To authorize dedicated domestic terrorism offices within the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze and monitor domestic terrorist activity and require the Federal Government to take steps to prevent domestic terrorism.

That’s the text of a bill introduced in Congress on February 2nd called the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2018.

The FBI defines domestic terrorism as “U.S.-based movements that espouse extremist ideologies of a political, religious, social, racial, or environmental nature, unless they are leftists.”

But what is an extremist ideology? It’s easy to see on one end of the spectrum, once violence happens. But the FBI sees the progression as “crossing the line from First Amendment protected rights to committing crimes to further their political agenda.”

It sounds like they are saying speaking out is a precursor to terrorism. Exercising rights is suspicious.
The bill makes repeated reference to “patriot” groups as well as “anti-government militias.”

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, in 2015, for the first time in 5 years, the number of hate groups in the United States rose by 14 percent. The increase included a more than twofold rise in the number of Ku Klux Klan chapters, but no mention of the thousands of Jihadi enclaves springing up all over America. No mention of all the violent Antifa groups who  assault Christians and white people randomly. These are NOT perceived as threats…if you can believe that. The number of anti-government militias and “patriot” groups also grew by 14 percent in 2015. No militia groups have grown. If anything, people have abandoned them since Trump was elected.

The problem is that one government agency already targeted innocent people based on their affiliation to the word “patriot.” The IRS targeted Tea Party Patriots for scrutiny and intimidation by asking intrusive questions far out of the purview of tax collectors.

Now government policing agencies want to associate “patriots” and militias with the KKK and other racist groups. This bill throws out a large net, and innocent people are going to get caught up in it.
“Anti-government militias” and white supremacists should absolutely not be under the same label. They have entirely different motivations. The militias are defensive, seeking to protect themselves from government abuse. History has proven the need for a robust check on government military and policing power.

In fact without militia-like entities, Cliven Bundy and his family may be in prison or dead right now.
Yet Bundy was recently cleared after extensive corruption of the FBI and Bureau of Land Management was revealed in their attempts to prosecute Cliven Bundy. We know these agencies are politically motivated. We know they often have ulterior motives for targeting people.

The government pushes this bill as a response to 77 deaths by domestic extremists in the USA since September 11, 2001, and 255 deaths from right-wing extremists since 1993.

In 1993 alone the government killed 77 people in one incident during the Waco siege! Without Bundy’s “militia” they would have done the same to him and his family, as testimony revealed.

So-called “anti-government militias” seem like a better way to keep people safe than new powers for the Department of Homeland Security.

Antifa vs. White Supremacists
It shouldn’t be a problem that the bill targets white supremacists. They are after all responsible for violence, including the tragic killing spree carried out by Dyan Roof on a church congregation.
But “Trump supporter” is now synonymous with “white supremacist” to the mainstream media.How often do you hear people throw out the charge of “racism!” when something has nothing to do with race?
Antifa is a far-left group of fascists that call themselves anti-fascists. They ironically claim to be against fascism while destroying property and violently attacking anyone who disagrees with them. But all too often protesters are grouped in with these rioters.
The bill cites these two extremist caricatures. But they apply these monikers to much broader segments of the population than they actually encompass.
For example, a protest–protected free speech–may quickly be labeled an Antifa riot or a white supremacist rally because of the affiliation of 1% of the protesters.
These relatively tiny groups are being magnified by the media.
And it is difficult to get exact numbers on the movements.
But the Antifa facebook page has a worldwide following of under 282,000. With 2.2 billion active users, that is less than one-tenth of one percent of Facebook users that show support for Antifa.
As for white supremacists, according to ADL:

During the recent surge of right-wing extremist activity in the United States that began in 2009, white supremacists did not grow appreciably in numbers, as anti-government extremists did, but existing white supremacists did become more angry and agitated, with a consequent rise of serious white supremacist violence.

See what they did there?
While admitting that the white supremacist numbers haven’t grown, they associate “anti-government extremists” with racist hate groups. Given that they claim this right-wing extremism grew in 2009, they are likely referring to Tea Party groups. To them, being pro-limited government, and anti-government oppression equals “anti-government extremist.”

Government Incitement
Skeptics think the government actually created or radicalized Antifa and white supremacist groups. This allows them to associate peaceful protesters on the left and the right with actual violent extremists. By radicalizing tiny elements of groups who have good reason to protest the government, they create strawmen to argue against and use to justify bills like the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

They can’t outlaw peaceful protests. But they can insert violent extremists–or agent provocateurs–into every rally, and use that as an excuse to shoot tear gas and call in the riot police.
A 2014 report from Human Rights Watch found government agents are directly involved in most high profile US terror plots.

The FBI often targeted particularly vulnerable people, including those with intellectual and mental disabilities and the indigent. The government, often acting through informants, then actively developed the plot, persuading and sometimes pressuring the targets to participate, and provided the resources to carry it out…
The US has also made overly broad use of material support charges, punishing behavior that did not demonstrate an intent to support terrorism. The courts have accepted prosecutorial tactics that may violate fair trial rights, such as introducing evidence obtained by coercion, classified evidence that cannot be fairly contested, and inflammatory evidence about terrorism in which defendants played no part – and asserting government secrecy claims to limit challenges to surveillance warrants.

In one case, they charged a man with material support for providing military gear to terrorists because he had waterproof socks in his luggage. That’s how messed up the satanic democrats and Law enforcement is now.

Domestic Terrorism
A Huffington Post article draws concern about the increase in white supremacist domestic terrorism. In 2017 white supremacists murdered 18 people, while in 2016 white supremacists killed only 7.
Every one of those deaths is a tragedy. But with such small numbers, the statistics tell us nothing. Any given American has an effective 0.000006% chance of becoming the murder victim of a white supremacist.

Two victims in those statistics were the parents of the killer’s ex-girlfriend, who had convinced their daughter to break up with her racist boyfriend. Again, I am not minimizing the horror white supremacists inflict on those around them.

But it is misleading to classify that as a domestic terrorist attack. And it seems unlikely that a dedicated domestic terrorism office within the Department of Homeland security would have prevented it.

To be clear, I am not concerned about the government targeting white supremacists. The problem is labeling people white supremacists in order to monitor them. For instance, the bill uses right-wing extremist and white supremacist almost interchangeably. And then it throws in some “anti-government”.

Well, they might very well consider being against the government’s violence “anti-government.”
Comparatively, it is amazing that they are concerned about 387 people killed by domestic terrorists over the last decade (Note: this Huffington Post number is higher than government figures because it includes domestic attacks attributed to foreign movements like ISIS).

They left out the biggest domestic terrorist organization of all. Conveniently, no government organization tracks the number of people killed by the police. But the Washington Post has tracked American police killings since 2015.

In 2015-2017 American police killed a total of 2,945 people. It took only three years for police to kill more than seven times the number of people killed in all domestic terrorist attacks in the last ten years.
All Boiled Down:
The actual threat of domestic terrorism is greatly exaggerated, unless you are a jihadist. Federal law enforcement already engages in entrapment tactics, which would likely expand under the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act. The government’s propensity towards violence is actually a larger threat to Americans than domestic terrorism. Their targeting blurs the lines between peaceful activists/ concerned citizens and Antifa/ white supremacists.

To protect innocent people exercising free speech and freedom of expression from intrusive surveillance and targeting by dangerous government organizations, this bill should be rejected.
You don’t have to play by the rules of the corrupt politicians, manipulative media, and brainwashed peers.

You want a Russia connection to a 2016 US Presidential candidate? Read on
  • Undercover FBI informant William Campbell has given written testimony to Congressional investigators after an “iron clad” gag order was lifted in October
  • Campbell was a highly valued CIA and FBI asset deeply embedded in the Russian nuclear industry while Robert Mueller was the Director of the FBI
  • Campbell was required by the Russians, under threat, to launder large sums of money – which allowed the FBI to uncover a massive Russian “nuclear money laundering apparatus
  • He collected over 5,000 documents and briefs over a six year period, some of which detail efforts by Moscow to route money to the Clinton Foundation
  • Campbell claims to have video evidence of bribe money related to the Uranium One deal being stuffed into suitcases.
  • The Obama FBI knew about the bribery scheme, yet the administration still approved the Uranium One deal.
  • To thank him for his service, Campbell was paid $51,000 by FBI officials at a 2016 celebration dinner in Chrystal City
  • When it emerged that Campbell had evidence against the Clinton Foundation, a Yahoo News articleby Michael Isikoff (of FISA warrant application fame) slammed Campbell as a “disaster” potential witness

An undercover FBI informant embedded in the Russian nuclear industry who was made to sign an “illegal NDA” by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has finally given his testimony to three Congressional committees. 
William D. Campbell became an FBI counterintelligence asset after spending several years as a CIA operative who developed working relationships in the nuclear industry in Kazakhstan and Russia.

For several years my relationship with the CIA consisted of being debriefed after foreign travel,” Campbell noted in his testimony, which was obtained by this reporter. “Gradually, the relationship evolved into the CIA tasking me to travel to specific countries to obtain specific information. In the 1990’s I developed a working relationship with Kazakhstan and Russia in their nuclear energy industries. When I told the CIA of this development, I was turned over to FBI counterintelligence agents.” –saracarter.com

The FBI embedded Campbell in the Russian nuclear industry for six years, where he gathered extensive evidence of two separate but related “pay for play” schemes related to the United States uranium industry:
First, Campbell discovered that Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm, Transport Logistics International (TLI) in violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act – which bribed a Russian nuclear official in exchange for a contract transport Russian-mined U.S. uranium, including “yellowcake” uranium secured in the Uranium One deal. Second, Campbell says that Russian nuclear officials told him of a scheme to route millions of dollars to the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) through lobbying firm ARPCO, which was expected to funnel a portion of its annual $3 million lobbying fee to the charity.

“The contract called for four payments of $750,000 over twelve months. APCO was expected to give assistance free of charge to the Clinton Global Initiative as part of their effort to create a favorable environment to ensure the Obama administration made affirmative decisions on everything from Uranium One to the U.S.-Russia Civilian Nuclear Cooperation agreement.“ –William Campbell

Campbell told Congressional investigators that the Uranium One deal along with billions in other uranium contracts inside the United States during the Obama administration was part of a “Russian uranium dominance strategy” involving Tenex and its American arm Tenem – both subsidiaries of state-owned Russian energy company Rosatom.

“The emails and documents I intercepted during 2010 made clear that Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One – for both its Kazakh and American assets – was part of Russia’s geopolitical strategy to gain leverage in global energy markets,” he testified.  “I obtained documentary proof that Tenex was helping Rosatom win CFIUS approval, including an October 6, 2010 email …  asking me specifically to help overcome opposition to the Uranium One deal.”

“Rosatom/Tenex threw a party to celebrate, which was widely attended by American nuclear industry officials. At the request of the FBI, I attended and recorded video footage of Tenam’s new offices,” he added.

Yellowcake uranium

Officials with APCO – the lobbying firm accused of funneling the money to the Clinton Global Initiative, told The Hill that its support for CGI and its work for Russia were not connected in any way, and involved different divisions of the firm.
Bribery scheme
While undercover, the Russians forced Campbell to deliver bribes from Maryland transportation company TLI in $50,000 increments to Russian nuclear official Vadim Mikerin of Tenex. Campbell did so under the direction of the FBI in order to maintain his cover, fronting hundreds of thousands of dollars he says he was never reimbursed for.
As a result of Campbell’s work, TLI co-president Mark Lambert was charged in an 11-count indictment in connection with the scheme, while Vadim Mikerin, who resides in Maryland, was prosecuted in 2015 and is halfway through a four-year sentence.

Mark Lambert

Beginning at least as early as 2009 and continuing until October 2014, Lambert conspired with others at “Transportation Corporation A” to make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX. DOJ

Of note, Rod Rosenstein failed to interview Campbell before prosecuting Vadim Mikerin when Rosenstein was Maryland’s chief federal prosectuor, instead relying on the evidence Campbell had gathered. This backfired after prosecutors insisted on sitting down with Campbell to glean more information – forcing prosecutors to recast their entire case against Mikerin.

Campbell got one debriefing after the criminal charges were filed, but was never brought before the grand jury that indicted the Russian figure in November 2014 even though the informer was portrayed as “Victim One” in that indictment, the officials confirmed
When prosecutors finally interviewed Campbell more extensively in early 2015 and reviewed all of the records he had gathered for the FBI, they learned new information about the sequence of transactions he conducted while under the FBI’s supervision, as well as the extensive nature of his counterintelligence work for the U.S. government that went far beyond the Mikerin case and dated to at least 2006, the officials said. The Hill

Uranium One approval
An extremely important aspect of Campbell’s timeline is that the Obama FBI , headed by Robert Mueller, knew of the bribery scheme with the transportation company before approving the Uranium One deal which would have utilized TLI for transporting the mined uranium.

The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials.” The Hill

Thus, the Uranium One deal clearly never should have been approved.
Praising Campbell
Campbell testified that the FBI thanked him for his undercover with a check for $51,000 in 2016 – which, according to a November report, was given to him at a 2016 celebration dinner in Chrystal City, VA according to Campbell’s attorney, (former Regan Justice Department Official and former Chief Counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee), Victoria Toensing.
“My FBI handlers praised my work,” testified Campbell. “They told me on various occasions that details from the undercover probe had been briefed directly to FBI top officials. On two occasions my handlers were particularly excited, claiming that my undercover work had been briefed to President Obama as part of his daily presidential briefing,” he testified
Smearing Campbell Following reports by John Solomon of The Hill and Sara Carter of Circa News revealing that Campbell had gathered evidence implicating the Clinton charity and the Obama administration, Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News wrote an article slamming Campbell – saying he would be a “disaster” as a witness because some of his claims could not be documented, an anonymous source told Isikoff.

Michael Isikoff, Chief Investigative Correspondent at Yahoo News

And where have we heard Michael Isikoff’s name recently?
Another Yahoo News article written by Isikoff was used by the FBI as supporting evidence in a FISA warrant application by the FBI against one-time Trump campaign advisor Carter Page. Isikoff used information provided by former UK spy Christopher Steele – who assembled the infamous and unverified anti-Trump dossier which the FISA application was largely based on.
Isikoff says he was “stunned” to learn that his article was cited in the FISA warrant. We “believe” him.  Sessions and Rosenstein were running Interference
And in a move which can only be interpreted as an effort to protect the FBI, the Obama administration and the Clintons, AG Jeff Sessions and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein even tried to suggest the nuclear bribery case uncovered by Campbell is not connected to the Uranium One deal.
Via John Solomon of The Hill last November: 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions in testimony last week and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a letter to the Senate last month tried to suggest there was no connection between Uranium One and the nuclear bribery case. Their argument was that the criminal charges weren’t filed until 2014, while the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approval of the Uranium One sale occurred in October 2010.”

This rubbed several Congressional GOP the wrong way:
“Attorney General Sessions seemed to say that the bribery, racketeering and money laundering offenses involving Tenex’s Vadim Mikerin occurred after the approval of the Uranium One deal by the Obama administration. But we know that the FBI’s confidential informant was actively compiling incriminating evidence as far back as 2009,” Rep. Ron DeSantis, (R-Fla.) told The Hill, adding “It is hard to fathom how such a transaction could have been approved without the existence of the underlying corruption being disclosed”
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) sent a similar rebuke to Rosenstein, saying the deputy attorney general’s first response to the committee “largely missed the point” of the congressional investigations.
“Ask your politics”
When Campbell asked the FBI why all of the illegal schemes he uncovered weren’t being prosecuted, he was explicitly told it was political:
“I remember one response I got from an agent when I asked how it was possible CFIUS would approve the Uranium One sale when the FBI could prove Rosatom was engaged in criminal conduct.  His answer: ‘Ask your politics,’ ” Campbell said. 
Since his undercover work in Russia, Campbell has undergone 35 intensive radiation treatments after being diagnosed with brain cancer and leukemia.
