BUSTED: Dem Rep. John Conyers Caught Lying About Not Knowing Sexual Harassment Claims Against Him

Embattled Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is going about his sex scandal the hard way. Monday evening, the longtime lawmaker was accused of settling sexual harassment allegations against him with taxpayer money. 

The morning after Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) was hit with sexual harassment claims, the Associated Press went to the lawmaker’s Detroit home to seek comment. Conyers denied the report, claiming he has not settled any sexual harassment complaints with staffers.

BuzzFeed reports:

Democratic Rep. John Conyers claimed Tuesday he didn’t know about the sexual harassment claims against him that were detailed in a BuzzFeed News investigation — but a person involved in the case immediately said that he did, in fact, know.

[…]

But a person involved in the case — which went through the Office of Compliance which has a secret mechanism by which Congress has kept an unknown number of sexual harassment allegations quiet — said it had actually reached a point where he did know.

“We brought the complaint to the Office of Compliance. They didn’t even tell him about it. You have to go through ‘counseling’ and all this stupid stuff. There’s an informal mediation that takes place — the congressmen don’t even know about this,” the person said.

“He ended up knowing about this because we took it as far as you can take it before you get to the official hearing,” the person said.

In a statement to POLITICO., Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said, “The allegations against Ranking Member Conyers are extremely serious and deeply troubling. Obviously, these allegations must be investigated promptly by the Ethics Committee.”

Speaker Paul Ryan called allegations against Conyers “extremely troubling.”

Rep. Bill Huizenga (R-MI) was the person member of Congress calling for Conyers to resign.

As TGP reported, The documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich.

Buzzfeed reports:

Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.

Buzzfeed also reported that staffers were tasked with flying women in for Conyers using Congressional resources.

One affidavit from a former female employee states that she was tasked with flying in women for the congressman. “One of my duties while working for Rep. Conyers was to keep a list of women that I assumed he was having affairs with and call them at his request and, if necessary, have them flown in using Congressional resources,” said her affidavit. (A second staffer alleged in an interview that Conyers used taxpayer resources to fly women to him.)

Former employees also said that Conyers made it very clear that if they performed ‘personal favors’ it would lead to salary increases and promotions. It was well known Conyers was having affairs with multiple female staffers. He often made sexual advances towards women and grew angry if they brought their husbands around.

“Been Looking At These Things With Amazement”: Dem Rep. John Conyers Breaks Silence On Sex Scandal

The morning after Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) was hit with sexual harassment claims, the Associated Press went to the lawmaker’s Detroit home to seek comment. Conyers denied the report, claiming he has not settled any sexual harassment complaints with staffers. 

AP reports:

Conyers, who answered the door at his Detroit home Tuesday morning, says he knows nothing about any claims of inappropriate touching and learned of the story just hours earlier.

Referring to allegations of sexual harassment and assault being made against politicians and others, the veteran lawmaker says he’s “been looking at these things with amazement.”

BuzzFeed reports that Conyers’ office paid the woman over $27,000 to settle the complaint under a confidentiality agreement. BuzzFeed also published affidavits from former staff members who said they had witnessed Conyers touching female staffers inappropriately or requesting sexual favors.

Footage Resurfaces of Dem Rep. John Conyers Reading Porn Magazine on Airplane Amid Sex Scandal (VIDEO)

Footage has resurfaced of Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) reading a pornography magazine on a packed airplane in 2010 amid the lawmaker’s bombshell sex scandal.

Daily Mail UK reports:

Clearly unabashed, an elderly congressman has been filmed reading Playboy magazine on a flight to Washington.

Maybe it was for research purposes but it must surely be a touch embarrassing for 81-year-old John Conyers, who is chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

The headline of the story on one website, The Michigan View, refers to ‘Mr Smut goes to Washington’.

The Detroit Democratic congressman was on a plane headed to the capital when a fellow passenger filmed him flicking through pages of the magazine.

The video and pictures were first posted on the Facebook page of the former Pulitzer Prize winner Charlie LeDuff.

As The Gateway Pundit’s Cristina Laila reported, it was revealed Monday evening that one Congressman who settled a harassment suit in 2015 was Democrat Rep John Conyers. According to affidavits, Conyers used taxpayer money to fly women into D.C. to meet with him in hotel rooms.

The documents were first provided to BuzzFeed News by Mike Cernovich.

Buzzfeed reports:

Michigan Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat and the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not “succumb to [his] sexual advances.”

Documents from the complaint obtained by BuzzFeed News include four signed affidavits, three of which are notarized, from former staff members who allege that Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sexual favors, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public. Four people involved with the case verified the documents are authentic.

CNN Host Grills UCLA Basketball Player’s Father For Disrespecting POTUS Trump In Off the Wall Interview (VIDEO)

On Monday evening, CNN host Chris Cuomo grilled Lavar Ball, the father of UCLA basketball player LiAngelo Ball for dismissing President Trump’s role in securing his son’s release from China.

Ball told Cuomo that he did more to get his son out of jail than President Trump.

“I helped my son get out of [China]…I had some people that had boots on the ground that knew the situation!”

Uproxx reports:

LaVar Ball took his feud with Donald Trump to another level on Monday night, as the founder of Big Baller Brand appeared on CNN. The much-anticipated interview came one day after the president tweeted about Ball’s comments regarding Trump’s involvement in getting three UCLA basketball players who were detained in China back to the United States.

Among the three players who were arrested for shoplifting was Ball’s middle son, LiAngelo. Trump tweeted that he wanted the players to thank him for speaking to Chinese president Xi Jinping about their status, and all three obliged upon returning stateside.

LaVar Ball was not as eager to thank Trump, however, as he responded to a question about the leader of the free world’s involvement by saying “Who? What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

“I don’t have to go around saying thank you to everybody.” Ball told CNN.

“He didn’t call me, I didn’t shake his hand. He didn’t have to say that. I have to know what somebody’s doing before I say thank you. I’m just not going to go around saying thank you. Now if you come shake my hand and meet me or meet my son or anybody and then say ‘Ok, you know what? Maybe I can help you out.’ Let’s do it that way,” added Ball.

Over the weekend, President Trump unloaded on LaVar Ball, the father of UCLA basketball LiAngelo Ball, for dismissing his role in getting his son released from China after being arrested for shoplifting.

“Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!,” tweeted President Trump.

Last week, LaVar Ball has this to say after a reporter asked him his thoughts on President Trump’s role in getting his son out of hot water:

“Who?” LaVar Ball told ESPN Friday. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

[…]Lavar Ball’s eldest son, Lonzo Ball, was picked second overall in last June’s NBA draft by the Los Angeles Lakers.

The trio of UCLA players were detained in China on Nov. 7 after they were accused of shoplifting from three stores.

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were arrested for shoplifting sunglasses during a trip to Shanghai for a game against Georgia Tech. President Trump tweeted Wednesday that the players were facing 10 years in prison, despite earlier reports that they would serve 20 days under house arrest.

Never-Before-Seen Photos Show Al Franken Grabbing Arianna Huffington’s Boobs And Butt

Never-before-seen photos of Al Franken and Arianna Huffington show the then-comedian grabbing the media mogul’s boobs and butt.

New York Post reports:

Newly revealed pictures show Sen. Al Franken grabbing self-described feminist Arianna Huffingtonon her bottom and breasts.

The never-before-published images, taken for a magazine in 2000 and obtained exclusively by The Post, include a number of frames showing the former “Saturday Night Live” star grabbing the media mogul’s buttocks as they pose back to back.

An even more shocking snap shows the pair posing on a bed, with Franken cupping Huffington’s breast with one hand.

“Franken was clowning around, but it really isn’t funny,” said a source from the shoot. “That’s his tactic, pretend like it’s all a big joke. Arianna was pushing his hands away. He was groping her. There was some fun attached to it, but she wasn’t enjoying it. She definitely told him to stop and pushed him away.”

“Franken stood there with his hand on her bottom for a long time, because there are numerous frames, each taken seconds apart, and his hand was there the whole time — his hand wasn’t just there for a quick moment,” a source told Emily Smith of the New York Post.

The pictures were taken by award-winning photographer Harry Benson.

Last Thursday, Franken was accused of groping, unwanted kissing by radio host and model Leeann Tweeden.

Radio anchor Leeann Tweeden traveled with Al Franken on a USO tour in December 2006.

On Monday, Lindsay Menz came forward saying Democrat Senator Al Franken inappropriately touched her at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

Franken reportedly grabbed her buttocks tightly while taking a photo.

“It wasn’t around my waist. It wasn’t around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt,”Lindsay Menz told CNN.

“I was like, oh my God, what’s happening,” Menz added.

Below is the photo Franken took with Menz.

Sessions DOJ Caught Downplaying Evidence Linking Obama And Hillary To Uranium-One Scandal

A new report says the Justice Department under Attorney General Jeff Sessions downplayed evidence linking former President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the Uranium-One scandal. 

The evidence comes amid the secret FBI informant behind the Uranium-One deal breaking his silence.

Last week, William Campbell came forward as the secret FBI informant, saying he is eager to testify because of his “concerns about Russia’s activities in the United States, but declined to comment further,” reports Reuters.

“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it,” Campbell told Reuters.

“FBI informant Campbell, acting as a consultant trying to help Rosatom overcome political opposition to the Uranium One deal, gathered evidence for six years, and, according to the more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation, there are a number of evidentiary links between corrupt Russians, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton,” reports Zerohedge.

Here’s how Sessions and Rosenstein attempted to downplay proof linking Obama and Clinton to the Uranium-One scandal.

The Hill reports:

For instance, both 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.

“The way I understand that matter is that the case in which Mr. Mikerin was convicted was not connected to the CFIUS problem that occurred two to three years before,” Sessions testified to the House Judiciary Committee last week, echoing Rosenstein’s letter from a few weeks earlier.

But investigative records show FBI counterintelligence recorded the first illicit payments in the bribery/kickback scheme in November 2009, a year before the CFIUS approval.

Here’s where Obama and Clinton come into the Uranium-One scandal.

Zerohedge reports:

Most critically, The Hill points out that Campbell’s debriefing files also show he regularly mentioned to FBI agents in 2010 a Washington entity with close ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton that was being paid millions to help expand Tenex’s business in the United States.

The entity began increasing its financial support to a Clinton charitable project after it was hired by the Russians, according to the documents.

Campbell engaged in conversations with his Russian colleagues about the efforts of the Washington entity and others to gain influence with the Clintons and the Obama administration.

He also listened as visiting Russians used racially tinged insults to boast about how easy they found it to win uranium business under Obama, according to a source familiar with Campbell’s planned testimony to Congress.

The FBI learned of the bribery scheme from Campbell.

According to Sean Hannity and Sara Carter, Campbell begun working with federal law enforcement in 2006 and alerted them to corruption by the Russians linked to the Clinton-Uranium One deal in 2009. Over the next four years, Campbell would provide the Department of Justice with “insurmountable evidence of corruption, kickbacks and money laundering,” by Russian officials.

Investigators had garnered mass amounts of evidence of corruption by the time the Obama administration approved the Clinton-Uranium One deal.

““Beginning in 2008, Mr. Campbell provided the U.S. government ample documented evidence of corruption in the Russian nuclear industry. Nevertheless, in October 2010 the Obama Administration authorized that corrupt entity to purchase a company that controlled 20% of the U.S. uranium supply,” Campbell’s lawyer Victoria Toensing told Hannity and Carter.

The question remains, why was the deal approved?

HANNITY EXCLUSIVE: Newly Unearthed Documents Linking Russia To Clinton-Uranium One Scandal Validates FBI Informant

Fox News host Sean Hannity and Circa News reporter Sara A. Carter have teamed up to report that “the treasure trove of documents,” linking Russia to the Clinton-Uranium One deal validates statements by FBI informant William D. Campbell Jr.

Recently, Campbell came forward as the secret FBI informant in the Uranium-One deal. The informant revealed he is eager to testify because of his “concerns about Russia’s activities in the United States, but declined to comment further,” reports Reuters.

“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it,” Campbell told Reuters.

Hannity.com reports:

Recent pushback in Congressional testimony by Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as well as unnamed Justice Department officials in several news articles, stating that the case involving a highly placed FBI confidential informant in the Russian nuclear industry was not connected to the sale of the Canadian firm Uranium One in 2010, does not coincide with the trove of documents, emails and memoranda obtained by this reporter that prove otherwise.

Moreover, an American energy consultant, whose now an official with the Department of Energy office of Nuclear Energy, produced a memorandum regarding the acquisition of Uranium One and other legislative matters for one of the main Russian co-conspirators that was then under an FBI clandestine investigation.

Within the over 5,000 documents and briefs given to the FBI and DOJ by the informant, there were detailed plans of Russia’s state controlled nuclear arm Rosatom, and its subsidiaries, to penetrate America’s vast energy market and its efforts to gain approval of the United States government for the eventual purchase of Uranium One. At the time Uranium One controlled roughly 20 percent of American uranium mining capacity.

In fact, the evidence obtained by the Department of Justice and FBI, starting as early as 2008, paint a much different picture than that of recent reports regarding the confidential informant, William D. Campbell Jr., and his role. According to the documents, Campbell gained insight into Russia’s strategic plans to gain global dominance in the uranium industry and to build a closer relationship with Obama administration officials.

According to Hannity and Carter, the FBI informant begun working with federal law enforcement in 2006 and alerted them to corruption by the Russians linked to the Clinton-Uranium One deal in 2009. Over the next four years, Campbell would provide the Department of Justice with “insurmountable evidence of corruption, kickbacks and money laundering,” by Russian officials.

“During Campbell’s time working as a confidential informant, [Campbell] was required by the Russians to launder large sums of money to financial institutions in Cyprus, Latvia and Seychelles,” say Hannity and Carter.

Investigators had garnered mass amounts of evidence of corruption by the time the Obama administration approved the Clinton-Uranium One deal.

““Beginning in 2008, Mr. Campbell provided the U.S. government ample documented evidence of corruption in the Russian nuclear industry. Nevertheless, in October 2010 the Obama Administration authorized that corrupt entity to purchase a company that controlled 20% of the U.S. uranium supply,” Campbell’s lawyer Victoria Toensing told Hannity and Carter.

The question remains, why was the deal approved?

MSNBC Host: Assault on Rand Paul is ‘One of My Favorite Stories!’ (VIDEO)

MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt told viewers Monday that the assault on Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), which left the lawmaker with six broken ribs, is one of her favorite stories to cover. 

“New details today on the incident that left Senator Rand Paul with six broken ribs – this might be one of my favorite stories,” Hunt said.

Hunt, realizing how ridiculous she sounded, continued by saying awkwardly, “Although, of course, we don’t — clearly Senator Paul is struggling. Neighbor Rene Boucher is accused of beating the Senator and GQ reports that lawn-care issues might be at the heart disagreement.”

Nearly two weeks ago, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was physically attacked by neighbor Rene Boucher. According to a new report, the incident may have stemmed from a real estate dispute, as Boucher has been trying to sell his Bowling Green, Kentucky home for years and blames Paul for his troubles. 

Daily Mail UK reports:

The ‘socialist’ doctor charged with cracking Senator Rand Paul‘s ribs in a crunching blindside tackle may have harbored a secret grudge against his GOP neighbor for spoiling his lakeside views and ‘devaluing’ his home, DailyMail.com can reveal. 

Rene Boucher, 59, told Paul in the wake of the mauling that he hadn’t been able to sell his $740,000 house for ten years because the congressman’s trees were ‘in the way’.

It’s believed Boucher was referring to woodland at the back of Paul’s property that blocks the doctor’s views of the picturesque private lake that forms the centerpiece of their upscale gated community.

Friends say it could explain why the retired anesthesiologist has failed to find a buyer for his five-bedroom, 1.36-acre home which is nonetheless described on property websites as ‘overlooking’ the desirable water feature.

Dan Renshaw, a 70-year-old car dealership owner isn’t buying the pervious motive that alleged the attack took place over a landscaping issue.

“I’ve known Rand and his wife Kelley for many years. They’re great neighbors. Rand mowed his own yard. It was always presentable. That’s a very lame excuse if that’s the one they are choosing to use. If there was a genuine problem this gentleman could have brought it to the homeowners’ association board and they would have evaluated the situation. But when you take matters into your own hands and attack people, that’s intolerable,” Renshaw told the Daily Mail UK

GOP Senator Admits Motive Behind War on Judge Moore? He ‘Can Determine Future of Trump’s Agenda’

The fix is in when it comes to the Republican establishment’s outrage over sexual harassment allegations facing Alabama GOP Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore. The Swamp wants voters to do the impossible by writing in a conservative candidate to be the next Republican Senator of Alabama. 

Of course this is an impossible task. No write-in candidate has been decided on, nor is there one who commands anywhere near the same level of support as Judge Moore.

“We’re about to give away a seat that can determine the future of Trump’s agenda,” admitted #NeverTrumper Sen. Lindsey Graham on Fox News Radio’s “The Brian Kilmeade Show.”

The Hill reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday said Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore poses a threat to the Republican agenda, adding that he favors maneuvering that would trigger a new special election.

“We’re about to give away a seat that can determine the future of Trump’s agenda, and I hope the good people of Alabama on the Republican side will try to find a way to pick a nominee that can represent the conservative cause in an effective way,” Graham said on Fox News Radio’s “The Brian Kilmeade Show.”

Moore is under pressure from numerous Republican lawmakers to step down from the race. He faces allegations of sexual misconduct, including assault, from multiple women, most of whom were teenagers at the time.

Republican leaders are plotting a “drastic plan,” to block Judge Roy Moore from becoming the next Senator of Alabama. Even more concerning, Vice-President Mike Pence and his team are helping to steer “the administration’s decision-making process on the Alabama race,” says POLITICO.

According to this Axios report, the Republican establishment hacks may even try to delay the Senate race or block Moore if he wins since it’s too late to remove him from the ballot!

Axios reports:

They’ve also weighed asking Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey to delay the Dec. 12 election to early next year. But she has already pushed it back once, after she assumed the role of governor in April when her predecessor was removed, and this option would likely inspire Moore and his team to file a lawsuit in court.

The New York Times reported that McConnell may not seat Moore even if he wins!

 Republican senators and their advisers, in a flurry of phone calls, emails and text messages, discussed fielding a write-in candidate, pushing Alabama’s governor to delay the Dec. 12 special election or even not seating Mr. Moore at all should he be elected. In an interview, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, declined to say whether he would agree to seat Mr. Moore should he win. Mr. McConnell deferred a question about a possible write-in campaign by Senator Luther Strange, the current occupant of the seat, to Mr. Strange.

As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported Monday, Moore isn’t going down without a fight, which the latest poll shows he is WINNING.

Moore is once again leading ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones in the PredictIt Market.

Via PredictIt:

Before the Washington Post story broke, Roy Moore was almost a lock to win at 89 percent in PredictIt’s Alabama Senate race prediction market. After the allegations surfaced, Moore’s odds dropped to 59 percent that day. He remained a slight favorite over Doug Jones, who also saw a significant bump on the news, until Monday when a fifth woman came forward with allegations against Moore.

On Monday afternoon, for the first time in the race, PredictIt traders had Doug Jones in the lead at 47 percent to Moore’s 38 percent.

Moore has since regained a huge lead in the PredictIt market.

As of Saturday afternoon Conservative Republican Roy Moore was back up on top of Doug Jones in the Alabama race.

** This comes after several of the accusations against Roy Moore have fallen apart.

Moore now leads in the PredictIt market 57 to 47.

That is a 19 point jump in little bit more than a week.

Here is how the race stands as of Monday morning:

EXPLOSIVE REPORT: Bill Clinton Facing NEW Sex Assault Claims After Flying On Private Jet ‘Air F*ck One’

Former President Bill Clinton is reportedly facing new sexual assault accusations from four women after flying on playboy billionaire investor Ron Burkle’s private jet nicknamed ‘Air F*ck One.’ 

Daily Mail UK reports:

Attorneys representing the women, who are coordinating their efforts, have notified Clinton they are preparing to file four separate lawsuits against him.

As part of the ongoing negotiations, the attorneys for the women are asking for substantial payouts in return for their clients’ silence.

A member of Clinton’s legal team has confirmed the existence of the new allegations.

If they fail, according to sources in Clinton’s inner circle, the four women are said to be ready to air their accusations of sexual assault at a press conference, making Clinton the latest — and most famous — figure in a long list of men from Harvey Weinstein to Kevin Spacey who have recently been accused of sexual assault.

[…]

Clinton helped Burkle generate business and flew around the world with a flock of beautiful young women on Burkle’s private jet, which was nicknamed ‘Air F**k One.’

The four women, who have not yet revealed their identities, were employed in low-level positions at the Burkle organization when they were in their late teens and claim they were sexually assaulted by the former president.

News of the alleged new accusers comes amid Hollywood and the Democrat Party facing a sexual harassment epidemic. The mainstream media and Democrat Party are now putting distance between themselves and the Clintons. Decades later, the Clintons are facing scorn and are being called upon to answer for Bill Clinton’s alleged sexual abuse.

Radio host Rita Cosby recently grilled failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over the sexual assault allegations against her husband former President Bill Clinton. The weekend WABC-AM radio host asked Clinton point blank if she regretted the way she treated the accusers.

Audio credit: GOP War Room

Below is a partial transcript of the exchange:

COSBY: Do you regret not saying something in support of the women? Because you’ve always said that women should be believed and yet George Stephanopoulos and others said that you were part of the attacking the victims, the women who were making the allegations against your husband. Do you regret that?

CLINTON: Look, I think every situation has to be judged on its own merits. And there were allegations that were disproved. There were allegations that were absolutely contradicted under sworn testimony. So, of course, you should give people who make such allegations the benefit of the doubt, that’s what our system does, but then you have to investigate them, and that fully happened in the late 90s.

And what we’ve got here is something very different. You know, there’s been no commitment to investigate the more than a dozen women who have made charges against President Trump and there’s been no effort to really go into and understand what he was talking about in his Hollywood Access tape. So I just say they are not parallel and I think it’s unfortunate that people are either misremembering or misinterpreting history. The country remembers it. The country went through it. And it was a painful period. The Republicans spent tens of millions of dollars looking at every part of our lives and we all know what they found. And that was based on those allegations that were provable and the many that were not and this is a distraction that we shouldn’t fall for. Because if you’re going to hold people to the same standard there’s a lot of parallels that are not being followed in recent times.

For decades, both the media and political class protected former President Clinton and his wife from questions such as these. Times have truly changed. 

Lawmakers like Sen. Gillibrand (NY-D) are saying former President Bill Clinton should have resigned after the Lewinsky scandal.

“Gillibrand, who took over Hillary Clinton’s New York Senate seat in 2009, said it would have been “appropriate” for Bill Clinton to step down as president after revelations of his affair with Lewinsky,” reported the Washington Examiner.

New Woman Accuses Al Franken of Sexual Assault At Minnesota State Fair

Lindsay Menz has come forward revealing Democrat Senator Al Franken inappropriately touched her at the Minnesota State Fair in 2010.

Franken reportedly grabbed her buttocks tightly while taking a photo. 

“It wasn’t around my waist. It wasn’t around my hip or side. It was definitely on my butt,”Lindsay Menz told CNN.

“I was like, oh my God, what’s happening,” Menz added.

Below is the photo Franken took with Menz.

Photo credit: CNN

CNN report:

Lindsay Menz, a 33-year-old woman who now lives in Frisco, Texas, reached out to CNN on Thursday hours after Tweeden made her story public. Menz said she wanted to share an “uncomfortable” interaction that left her feeling “gross.” According to Menz, she attended the Minnesota State Fair with her husband and father in the summer of 2010, almost two years after Franken was elected to the Senate. Her father’s small business was sponsoring a local radio booth, and she spent the day meeting various elected officials, political candidates and celebrities and taking photos with them as they stopped by the booth.
When Franken walked in, Menz and her husband, who also spoke with CNN, said they recognized him right away. Menz said she had a brief and cordial exchange with the senator. Then, as her husband held up her phone and got ready to snap a photo of the two of them, Franken “pulled me in really close, like awkward close, and as my husband took the picture, he put his hand full-fledged on my rear,” Menz said. “It was wrapped tightly around my butt cheek.”

Last thursday, Franken was accused of groping, unwanted kissing by radio host and model Leeann Tweeden.

Radio anchor Leeann Tweeden traveled with Al Franken on a USO tour in December 2006.

Tweeden described the sexual abuse on the KABC website where she works as an announcer.

There was even a photo of Franken kissing Tweeden on stage.

Both Republicans and Democrats are calling for an ethics probe.

According to “Clinton Cash,” author Peter Schweizer, then Senator Hillary Clinton extorted a Kazakh official involved in the Uranium-One deal. It is possible Schweizer misspoke and meant to say Secretary of State Clinton.

The Breitbart News editor-at-large did not go further into detail, merely alluding to the fact that the secret FBI informant’s testimony on the Uranium-One scandal next week will be “very interesting.”

Transcript via Grabien:

SCHWEIZER: “Well, I have to say upfront, I have not met him. I don’t know him. But, what I understand by looking at legal documents involving this case. This guy was an insider’s insider. He was being paid by the Russian company $50,000 a month to serve as a lobbyist. And in the legal filings, what you find is his job was to basically carry the flag for this entity in Washington, D.C. And that job included setting up meetings with high ranking administration officials.

This would have been the Obama Administration. People on Capitol Hill. And other elite influence, you know, makers. So, he was working in a very, very high level. And what has leaked out seems to indicate he has got a lot of information that relates specifically to uranium one. So, it’s going to be very exciting and I think it’s important to point out, judge, also, remember, we already have a foreign government official saying that involving uranium one that he and his fellow government employees were extorted by the Clintons then senator Hillary Clinton.

This comes from the head of their atomic agency saying that Senator Clinton refused to meet with officials unless and until they granted uranium concessions to ended up giving more than $100 million to the Clinton Foundation. So we have got that testimony. We have got this new witness coming out. It’s going to get very interesting here in the weeks ahead.

William D. Campbell has come forward as the secret FBI informant in the Uranium-One deal. The informant revealed he is eager to testify because of his “concerns about Russia’s activities in the United States, but declined to comment further,” reports Reuters.

“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it,” Campbell told Reuters.

According to a report by Andrea Noble, Campbell personally bribed a Russian businessman working for state-owned energy giant Rosatom. The informant then attempted to recoup the money — but failed.

Washington Times reports:

FBI informant who gave the government information about a Russian bribery plot implicated in the sale of U.S. uranium rights tried unsuccessfully last year to recover upwards of $700,000 in bribes he said he was authorized to pay as part of the FBI investigation.

William D. Campbell has emerged now as the key figure in a congressional probe into Russia’s 2010 purchase of U.S. uranium rights and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s role in approving the deal.

His identity had been shielded for weeks, but court records obtained by The Washington Times, as well as a report by Reuters, identified the man.

Mr. Campbell has not returned calls from The Washington Times seeking comment, but his civil suit, describing his involvement in the FBI investigation, matches details of the criminal case brought against Vadim Mikerin. Mikerin, who was the head of U.S. operations for Tenex, a subsidiary of Russia’s atomic energy giant Rosatom, was convicted of money laundering and other crimes and in 2015 sentenced to four years in prison.

As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported on Thursday evening, Investigative reporter John Solomon told Sean Hannity that the Campbell has video of briefcases full of money in the bribery of case on Hillary Clinton.

Solomon says the Reuters report today downplaying the informant is completely inaccurate.

The informant says he is in fear for his life since he was outed by the Sessions DOJ.
Campbell will reportedly testify on Monday.

The informant will testify next week before Congress.

Mystery Surrounds Sudden Death of Mega Donor To Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama

Steve Mostyn, Democrat mega donor to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, died after “a sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue.”

While the death appears to be suicide, the Mostyn family has yet to comment on what the cause of death is. 

Mostyn, a famous Houston-area trial lawyer was one of the country’s biggest donors to Democrat causes.

Chron.com reports:

The Mostyns were co-founders of the Ready for Hillary PAC, a political action committee supporting Clinton’s unsuccessful campaign for president. At the same time, state campaign finance records show he contributed to a police-affiliated PAC that supported some Republican primary candidates.

In 2016, Mostyn gave Clinton $1 million.

The Statesman reports:

The Mostyns were particularly active in the 2012 national elections, donating $5.2 million to political action committees backing President Barack Obama and Democrats in Congress, establishing the couple as among the nation’s top 20 donors to political causes that year, according to the Center for Public Integrity.

Questions are being raised after the cause of death was withheld. Mostyn did not have a history of mental illness.

Mostyn made millions by suing insurance companies after Hurricane Rita in 2005 and Hurricane Ike in 2008 ravaged the state of Texas.

According to the Daily Caller, the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust (FACT) issued a formal complaint against Hillary Clinton’s campaign for coordinating with Mostyn’s Ready for Hillary Super PAC.

FACT has asked other federal agencies to investigate the Clinton campaign’s dealings. The watchdog sent a letter to the IRS asking it to investigate a $350,000 payment that the Clinton Foundation made to Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign for an email list of potential donors.

The watchdog has also asked the Federal Election Commission to investigate whether Clinton’s campaign illegally obtained an email list of 4 million names from the pro-Clinton super PAC, Ready for Hillary. FACT asserts that the list swap should be considered an in-kind donation — which would constitute illegal coordination between the campaign and PAC.

FACT has also asked the Senate Select Committee on Ethics to look into an April 21 meeting in which Clinton campaign aides attended a weekly meeting of Senate Democrats. FACT asserts that the meeting violates rule

Of course, nothing came of the complaint.

REPORT: ‘Next Wave’ of Sexual Harassment Allegations Set To Rock Washington

If you thought the sexual harassment allegations would stop at Senator Al Franken, you’re sadly mistaken. According to Axios reporter Jonathan Swan, claims against the Democrat lawmaker are the “very tip of the congressional iceberg.”

The “next wave,” is coming, says Swan.

Axios reports:

Members of Congress with histories of mistreating women should be extremely nervous. Major outlets, including CNN, are dedicating substantial newsroom resources to investigating sexual harassment allegations against numerous lawmakers.

[…]

Bottom line: Democratic Sen. Al Franken is the very tip of the congressional iceberg. Many more stories are coming and we wouldn’t be surprised if they end several careers.

“A Republican source told me he’s gotten calls from well-known D.C. reporters who are gathering stories about sleazy members,” says Swan.

As previously reported by Cristina Laila, Congress has a rampant sexual harassment problem. In fact the problem is so bad that female lawmakers and aides keep a ‘creep list’ of men who are notorious for lewd behavior.

Twitter was set ablaze Thursday after the Congressional Office of Compliance released a year-by-year breakdown of harassment settlements and other awards without any details or names.

A new report by CNN exposed the DC swamp’s very serious problem of powerful men preying on women. CNN spoke with over 50 current and former lawmakers, aides and staff who have personally experienced sexual harassment on The Hill or know people who have.

As if this couldn’t get any worse, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd Tuesday that taxpayers have paid over $15 million to settle sexual harassment lawsuits against members of Congress!

The New England Patriots are playing the Oakland Raiders at Estadio Azteca stadium in Mexico City Sunday. Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat during the American National Anthem, but stood for the Mexican Anthem. 

New York Post reports:

Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat during most of U.S. anthem and stood for the Mexican anthem before their game against the Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.

Lynch has not stood for the national anthem since returning from retirement this season.

There did not appear to be any other protests during the anthem as the afternoon games kicked off. Five NFL players protested during the national anthems before early games.

The Dolphins’ Kenny Stills, Julius Thomas and Michael Thomas took a knee before their game against Tampa Bay.

Giants defensive lineman Olivier Vernon took a knee, as he has done most of the season. The opposing Chiefs stood scattered on their sideline, though cornerback Marcus Peters remained in the tunnel until it was over.

“Mexican national anthem being sung on field at Estadio Azteca. And throughout the crowd. Marshawn Lynch rose for it, tweeted the NFL’s Michael Gehlken.

POTUS Trump Blasts Father of UCLA Basketball Player For Dismissing Role in Securing Son’s Release From China

President Trump unloaded on LaVar Ball, the father of UCLA basketball LiAngelo Ball, for dismissing his role in getting his son released from China after being arrested for shoplifting. 

“Now that the three basketball players are out of China and saved from years in jail, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo, is unaccepting of what I did for his son and that shoplifting is no big deal. I should have left them in jail!,” tweeted President Trump.

LaVar Ball has this to say after a reporter asked him his thoughts on President Trump’s role in getting his son out of hot water:

“Who?” LaVar Ball told ESPN Friday. “What was he over there for? Don’t tell me nothing. Everybody wants to make it seem like he helped me out.”

[…]

Lavar Ball’s eldest son, Lonzo Ball, was picked second overall in last June’s NBA draft by the Los Angeles Lakers.

The trio of UCLA players were detained in China on Nov. 7 after they were accused of shoplifting from three stores.

Trump aide Dan Scavino unloaded on Ball over his disrespectful comments.

“Wannabe @Lakers coach, BIG MOUTH @Lavarbigballer knows if it weren’t for President @realDonaldTrump, his son would be in China for a long, long, long time! #FACT,” tweeted Scavino.

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were arrested for shoplifting sunglasses during a trip to Shanghai for a game against Georgia Tech. President Trump tweeted Wednesday that the players were facing 10 years in prison, despite earlier reports that they would serve 20 days under house arrest.

At a press conference Wednesday, Cody Riley thanked President Trump for securing his release.

“To President Trump and the United States government, thank you for taking the time to intervene on our behalf,” UCLA basketball player Cody Riley said.

UCLA men’s basketball coach Steve Alford said “I can’t thank enough the incredible folks here at UCLA, at the Pac-12 and even President Trump and his administration for the nonstop efforts to resolve this situation.”

#NeverTrumper Jeff Flake Was Foreign Lobbyist Working For Uranium Firm With Ties to Iran

Since announcing he will not seek re-election in 2018, Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is on a warpath against President Trump. While Flake is lamenting President Trump’s rhetoric and nationalist, populist policies, it’s important to remember the Arizona lawmaker has a checkered past as a foreign lobbyist who worked for a uranium mining firm with ties to Iran. 

Yahoo News reports:

[Flake] came back to Washington [from Namibia] in 1990 and launched a consulting firm, Interface Public Affairs; he signed up the Rossing uranium mine, one of the new nation’s economic drivers, as a client.

[..]

Flake signed on as the mine’s representative a month after Namibia achieved independence. His job was to ensure that sanctions enacted by state and local governments in the U.S. didn’t prevent the sale of Rossing “uranium to some of the utilities around the country,” he said.

[…]

More recently, the Rossing mine has come under scrutiny for its financial ties to Iran. While the firm Rio Tinto owns 69 percent of the mine, the Iranian Foreign Investment Co., which the Treasury Department describes as a “wholly owned” subsidiary of the Tehran regime, holds a 15 percent stake. Iran has held its share of the company since the 1970s, said Rio Tinto spokesman Illtud Harri.

Flake said he was unaware that Iran owned part of the mine. Indeed, his 1990 federal filing states that Rossing was not “owned,” “financed,” “controlled,” or “subsidized in part” or whole by a foreign government, although Iran and Namibia both held stakes in the mine.

Flake is in the news after being caught on hot mic saying Republicans are “toast,” if President Trump and Judge Roy Moore take over the party.

“[If we] become the party of Roy Moore and Donald Trump, we are toast,” Flake told Mayor of Phoenix suburb of Mesa Friday after taking questions at a town hall session.

Later, Flake tweeted a link to the story, saying “No news here. I’ve been saying this to anyone who will listen.”

Radio Host Grills Hillary Clinton: Do You Regret Attacking Your Husband’s Sex Victims? (AUDIO)

Radio host Rita Cosby grilled failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over the sexual assault allegations against her husband former President Bill Clinton. The weekend WABC-AM radio host asked Clinton point blank if she regretted the way she treated the accusers.

Audio credit: GOP War Room

Below is a partial transcript of the exchange:

COSBY: Do you regret not saying something in support of the women? Because you’ve always said that women should be believed and yet George Stephanopoulos and others said that you were part of the attacking the victims, the women who were making the allegations against your husband. Do you regret that?

CLINTON: Look, I think every situation has to be judged on its own merits. And there were allegations that were disproved. There were allegations that were absolutely contradicted under sworn testimony. So, of course, you should give people who make such allegations the benefit of the doubt, that’s what our system does, but then you have to investigate them, and that fully happened in the late 90s.

And what we’ve got here is something very different. You know, there’s been no commitment to investigate the more than a dozen women who have made charges against President Trump and there’s been no effort to really go into and understand what he was talking about in his Hollywood Access tape. So I just say they are not parallel and I think it’s unfortunate that people are either misremembering or misinterpreting history. The country remembers it. The country went through it. And it was a painful period. The Republicans spent tens of millions of dollars looking at every part of our lives and we all know what they found. And that was based on those allegations that were provable and the many that were not and this is a distraction that we shouldn’t fall for. Because if you’re going to hold people to the same standard there’s a lot of parallels that are not being followed in recent times.

For decades, both the media and political class protected former President Clinton and his wife from questions such as these. Times have truly changed. 

The grilling comes amid an effort to purge the Clintons from the Democrat power structure as the party struggles to galvanize the base around meaningful policy proposals and inspirational 2020 candidates. Aside from attempting to derail President Trump’s agenda, what ideas have the Democrats put forward that a deal orientated White House can deliberate in a serious way?

Not only are the Democrats light on policy, but even with the likes of Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker, is there anyone out there that could defeat President Trump in 2020? The prospect appears less likely everyday. Before the Democrats can even begin to ponder these big questions, the Clinton machine must first be purged.

Secret FBI Informant In Uranium-One Deal Reveals Proof of Wrongdoing: He Personally Bribed Russian Official!

Nervous? John Podesta In ‘Panic Mode’ After Sessions Weighs Special Counsel For Clinton-Uranium-One Deal

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chair is in ‘panic mode,’ after reports Attorney General Jeff Sessions is weighing a special counsel to investigate the Uranium-One deal. 
According to Fox News, the Justice Department head ordered senior federal prosecutors to evaluate whether or not a special counsel should investigate the Uranium One deal and “alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation.” Podesta penned an unhinged op-ed after the news, accusing President Trump and AG Sessions of attempting to turn the U.S. into a banana republic.
Podesta wrote in the Washington Post:
Okay, it’s official. President Trump wants to upend 230 years of constitutional history and principle to run the U.S. justice system like a banana republic, or perhaps more aptly like what now passes for the rule of law in the country he aspires to emulate, the Russian Federation. What the Founding Fathers built with a written Constitution and 85 Federalist Papers, the president is trying to tear down 140 or 280 characters at a time.
[…]
This week, it was reported that Attorney General Jeff Sessions — in an apparent effort to appease Trump — is considering appointing a special counsel to investigate Clinton’s role in approving the purchase of Uranium One, a company that owned uranium mines in the United States, by Russia’s nuclear energy agency. This is what authoritarians and tyrants do. They use the instruments of state power, particularly the wrath of the prosecutor, to rain opprobrium down upon citizens with whom they disagree. It is what Putin did by using the Russian penal system to break the back of Sergei Magnitsky’s anti-corruption campaign and end his life. Our constitutional system of limited power, checks and balances and individual rights has protected us from such abuses of power. Trump is putting that system to the test.
          […]
[I]f Sessions yields to pressure from the president and the president’s House Republican allies, it will be a dark day at the department I once proudly served. The rule of law will have been weakened, and our country will be in further peril.
Click here to read Podesta’s op-ed.

As Reddit user PandorasPanda noted, the op-ed shows Podesta is in ‘panic mode.’

As The Gateway Pundit reported, disgruntled Republican lawmakers are beginning to voice the same displeasure over the inaction of Attorney General Jeff Sessions as many conservatives have for months.

The calls for Sessions to investigate the corruption surrounding Hillary Clinton and James Comey are growing louder.

On Monday, GOP Congressmen Jim Jordan and Matt Gaertz called on Sessions to probe the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton private email use or resign.

“It’s time for Jeff Sessions to name a Special Counsel and get answers for the American people. If not, he should step down,” the congressmen said in a piece for FoxNews.com.

WOW! Book Ties Fusion GPS, John McCain & Mainstream Media to ‘Trump Dossier’ As New Details Emerge

In yet another twist to the ‘Trump dossier,’ saga, we now learn that Fusion GPS Co-founder Glenn Simpson personally gave Senator John McCain (R-AZ) a copy of the now discredited dossier. Earlier reports suggested that McCain was made aware of the dossier from British associates, but was never in possession of the document’s final draft. 

“A new book out by Guardian journalist Luke Harding [“Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win,”] provides previously unknown details about the Trump dossier and its author, former British spy Christopher Steele,” writes the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross.

Daily Caller reports:

It has been previously reported that McCain was aware of the dossier before it was published by BuzzFeed on Jan. 10. He was told of its existence in Nov. 2016 by Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador and associate of Steele’s. It was also known that a copy was passed to McCain and his associate, David Kramer.

What was not known was that McCain was provided a final copy of the dossier directly by Simpson, the former Wall Street Journal reporter who started Fusion GPS.

“Les than twenty-four hours later, Kramer returned to Washington. Next, Simpson shared a copy of the dossier confidentially with McCain.”

McCain’s spokeswoman did not respond to The Daily Caller’s request for comment.

In a section of Ross’ piece subtitled “Reporters at competing outlets cooperated on anti-Trump efforts,” it’s reveals that mainstream media reports, fiercely competitive over scoops and exclusives, colluded together in an effort to push Trump-Russia hysteria.

Daily Caller has more:

In the book, Harding describes how reporters at competing outlets rallied together as part of an effort to expose Trump’s alleged Russia ties.

“There was healthy competition still, but reporters on different titles began working together on some stories. There were formal press consortiums and ad hoc conversations between onetime rivals,” Harding writes.

“I talked to The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Financial Times in London, Reuters, Mother Jones, The Daily Beast, CNN, and others. Such conversations took place in New York, Washington, London, Munich, and Sarajevo. Some happened in glossy conference rooms, others in the corners of pubs over warm ale.”

Click here to read the Daily Caller’s report.

Not only did Fusion GPS give McCain a copy of the dossier, but its contents helped spur an arms race of sorts for Trump-Russia collusion stories.

The comes amid reports John Podesta told investigators that he met with Fusion GPS about the dossier.

The revelation is raising eyebrows as Podesta told Congress that he didn’t know who paid for opposition research firm for the shoddy ‘intel.’

Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller notes “The Times report does not say whether Podesta and Simpson discussed the Clinton campaign’s involvement in the dossier project.”

Simpson spoke with House investigators in a closed-door meeting Tuesday. As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Fox News’ Catherine Herridge says Simpson failed to verify the dossier’s claims prior to handing it off to clients.

‘Place Where Complaints Go To Die’: Capitol Hill Insider Admits Senate Ethics Probe Into Al Franken Is Complete Sham (VIDEO)

According to POLITICO reporter and Capitol Hill insider Josh Gerstein, the Senate Ethics probe into sexual harassment reports against Democrat Al Franken is a sham.  

“It’s really a place where complaints about senators go to die,” admits Gerstein.

When Franken called on the Senate Ethics Committee to investigate him, what he was really doing was smartly moving to have the claims burred.

Both Republicans and Democrats are calling for an ethics probe.

SEAN HANNITY: ‘Unhinged’ Al Franken Harassed Me — Security Was Forced To Step In (AUDIO)

Sean Hannity says embattled Democrat Senator Al Franken screamed endlessly at the Fox News host until security officers stepped in.  

Here’s what Hannity told his listeners on Thursday:

“You know, I have an experience, look, obviously it’s not like what you guys went through. One day I went down to the green room at the Fox News channel and Barry Farber, who you know is one of the great radio pioneers and I went to see him. It was in the Hannity and Colmes days. I’m trying to have a conversation with Barry Farber and Al Franken is in there screaming at me and I’m like alright I don’t want to talk to you, I’m here to see my friend. Finally it gets to the point that I can’t even have it and I said alright Barry good to see you my friend, God bless you, give him a hug and walked out. [Franken] is screaming at me, following me and the halls of Fox are filled with security guys and literally he would not stop. They called the code and then security literally surrounded this guy.”

Franken is being accused of sexually harassing not one, but two women. Los Angeles anchor Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of kissing and groping her without consent when they were traveling on a USO tour in 2006.

According to Tweeden, “He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.”

The second accuser is Melanie Morgan of Media Equalizer.

Yes, it’s true. I was stalked and harassed by Al Franken. I will have details @MediaEqualizer shortly,” tweeted Morgan.

Is Roger Stone the Mastermind Behind Al Franken’s Sexual Harassment Scandal? (VIDEO)

Seasoned political operative Roger Stone knew Democrat Senator Al Franken was about to get hit with damning sexual harassment allegations before the report broke Thursday.

“Roger Stone says Senator Al Franken’s time in the barrel is about to come ,” tweeted Stone Cold Truth, the Twitter account dedicated to covering all things Roger Stone.

Here’s the full quote from Stone…”Roger Stone says it’s Al Franken’s “time in the barrel”. Franken next in long list of Democrats to be accused of “grabby” behavior.”

According to the Daily Caller, Stone texted reporter Alex Pfeiffer about the scandal hours before it broke.

Daily Caller reports:

Famed Republican political operative Roger Stone knew that a news anchor would accuse Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken of sexual assault.

“Let’s just say Sen. Franken’s time in the barrel is about to come,” Stone told The Daily Caller over text early Thursday morning, hours before Leeann Tweeden came out with her claims.

Stone, a longtime political adviser to President Trump, is known for his “dirty tricks.” He did not elaborate to TheDC how he knew Tweeden was going to come out with her claims.

 

Infowars producer Rob Dew says he predicted the scandal as well.

“I predict @SenFranken will be accused of groping & sexual harassment. He is also very short and an idiot, yet people still like him ,” tweeted Dew.

It raises the question…

Secret FBI Informant Breaks Silence on Uranium One Scandal — Says Proof of Wrongdoing ‘Exists’

For the first time, the FBI informant on the Clinton-Uranium One deal has broken his silence to the media. The informant revealed he is eager to testify because of his “concerns about Russia’s activities in the United States, but declined to comment further,” reports Reuters. 

Independent Journal Review reports:

The witness, identified by Reuters as William D. Campbell, worked as a lobbyist for a Russian firm.

Hillary Clinton claims no wrongdoing with Uranium One, though.

“If they send a signal that we’re going to be like some dictatorship, like some authoritarian regime, where political opponents are going to be unfairly, fraudulently investigated, that rips at the fabric of the contract we have, that we can trust our justice system,” she said during an interview with Mother Jones.

Campbell, on the other hand, refuses to stay silent about the issue and plans to testify in front of Congress. But he doesn’t just have his testimony, and he claims to have evidence.

“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it,” he told Reuters.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Victoria Toensing, the lawyer representing the FBI informant says there is “on-the-record quid pro quo” surrounding the Uranium One scandal with Bill Clinton receiving a $500,000 speaking fee from a Russian backed bank and the Clinton Foundation receiving millions of dollars from people involved on the deal.

As previously reported, not only was the FBI informant working on the Russian bribery case threatened by the Obama administration, he was blocked by the DOJ under then-AG Loretta Lynch from testifying to Congress.

Toensing said her client “is not only afraid of the Russian people, but he is afraid of the US government because of the threats the Obama administration made against him.”

In a major win for the American people, the DOJ lifted the informant’s gag order which means he will be able to testify to Congress.

HERE WE GO=> Second Woman Accuses Al Franken of Stalking & Harassing Her

Democrat Senator Al Franken is being accused of sexually harassing not one, but two women. Los Angeles anchor Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of kissing and groping her without consent when they were traveling on a USO tour in 2006.

According to Tweeden, “He repeated that actors really need to rehearse everything and that we must practice the kiss. I said ‘OK’ so he would stop badgering me. We did the line leading up to the kiss and then he came at me, put his hand on the back of my head, mashed his lips against mine and aggressively stuck his tongue in my mouth.”

Phil Kerpen teased a second accuser would come forward.

“I’ve already heard about a second Al Franken victim.”

The second accuser is Melanie Morgan of Media Equalizer.

Yes, it’s true. I was stalked and harassed by Al Franken. I will have details @MediaEqualizer shortly,” tweeted Morgan.

Who is Melanie Morgan?

NOT FUNNY: Al Franken Once Joked About Al-Qaeda Assassinating President Bush (VIDEO)

In 2004, Al Franke told the sign-language interpreter working at the Republican convention that he should have communicated to Al-Qaeda how to sneak into the White House to assassinate President George Bush.

FRANKEN: “You what would have been a really funny, stupid thing to do? Would have been, like, Al-Qaeda friends of mine, I’ve scoped out the place, the way to get the President is to come through the Kitchen, which is downstairs.”

After finishing his joke, Franken lets out a huge laugh…”HA-HA!”

Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey had this to say about the tasteless joke back in 2008:

I can already hear the objections. Franken is a satirist! He was joking! He’s paid to make people laugh! Er, yeah … but then Franken was also a political commentator, and now he wants to serve in the US Senate, so his judgment in this is fair game. If he’s such a hater that the notion of AQ assassinating George Bush is funny, that shows just how far outside the mainstream Franken is, and how poor his judgment can be.

Does Franken really believe that joking about presidential assassinations is in good taste, ever? Because in a Barack Obama administration, I doubt that Franken’s allies will find it funny. Neither will I, or most everyone I know.

GOP Swamp Leaders Plotting ‘Drastic Plan’ To Steal Senate Seat From Judge Moore — RINOS Steering White House Decision?

As Steve Bannon warned at CPAC back in February, “If you think they’re going to give your country back to you without a fight you are sadly mistaken.” Republican leaders are plotting a “drastic plan,” to block Judge Roy Moore from becoming the next Senator of Alabama. Even more concerning, Vice-President Mike Pence and his team are helping to steer “the administration’s decision-making process on the Alabama race,” says POLITICO. 

POLITICO reports:

With less than four weeks until the special election and no sign that the party’s besieged nominee will exit the race, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his top advisers are discussing the legal feasibility of asking appointed Sen. Luther Strange to resign from his seat in order to trigger a new special election.

McConnell aides express caution, saying they’re uncertain whether such a move, one of several options being discussed, is even possible. Yet the talks underscore the despair among top Republicans over relinquishing a seat in deep-red Alabama, further diminishing their slim Senate majority.

[…]

The White House, meanwhile, is poring over survey results. Trump remained silent about the situation on Wednesday, ignoring questions from reporters about Alabama after he delivered extensive public remarks on his 12-day Asia tour. Vice President Mike Pence, his chief of staff, Nick Ayers, and the administration’s political director, Bill Stepien, are helping to steer the administration’s decision-making process on the Alabama race.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, Axios says Republican swamp creatures may ask RINO hack Luther Strange who lost to Moore during the primary and Republican Rep. Robert Aderholtto to run as write-in candidates.

It gets worse…

According to this Axios report, the Republican establishment hacks may even try to delay the Senate race or block Moore if he wins since it’s too late to remove him from the ballot!

Axios reports:

They’ve also weighed asking Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey to delay the Dec. 12 election to early next year. But she has already pushed it back once, after she assumed the role of governor in April when her predecessor was removed, and this option would likely inspire Moore and his team to file a lawsuit in court.

The New York Times reported that McConnell may not seat Moore even if he wins!

 Republican senators and their advisers, in a flurry of phone calls, emails and text messages, discussed fielding a write-in candidate, pushing Alabama’s governor to delay the Dec. 12 special election or even not seating Mr. Moore at all should he be elected. In an interview, Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, declined to say whether he would agree to seat Mr. Moore should he win. Mr. McConnell deferred a question about a possible write-in campaign by Senator Luther Strange, the current occupant of the seat, to Mr. Strange.

Republicans are also attempting to damage Judge Moore by releasing shady polling.

A new poll commissioned by the National Republican Senate Committee claims Alabama Democrat Senate candidate Doug Jones is leading Republican Judge Roy Moore by 12 points.

Statistician Nate Silver implies the numbers may have been manipulated to pressure Moore out of the race.

“I wouldn’t put much stock in that NRSC poll showing Moore way down, which presumably was “leaked” in order to get him out of the race,” tweeted Silver.

Despite the onslaught waged by establishment Democrats and Republicans, Moore is still leading in the polls.

Moore is leading Jones 49% to 43%!

The Judge is NOT backing down — instead — he’s calling out McConnell.

“Dear Mitch McConnell, Bring. It. On,” tweeted Moore Wednesday evening.

“TICK TOCK”: Hannity Warns of Another Bombshell As Details Emerge Top FBI Official Granted Clinton Email Probe “Special” Status

Fox News host Sean Hannity is on the front lines in the fight against the mainstream media’s blatant effort to ignore scandal after scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton.

On Wednesday evening, Hannity teased yet another bombshell by tweeting a new report by The Hill‘s John Solomon about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe writing an email in which he revealed the Clinton email investigation had been given “special” status.

The Hill reports:

McCabe’s Oct. 23, 2016, email to press officials in the FBI said the probe was under the control of a small group of high-ranking people at the FBI’s headquarters in Washington.

“As I now know the decision was made to investigate it at HQ with a small team,” McCabe wrote in the email. He said he had no input when the Clinton email investigation started in summer 2015, while he was serving as assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington office.

“[The Washington office] provided some personnel for the effort but it was referred to as a ‘special’ and I was not given any details about it,” he wrote.

According to The Hill, the FBI refuses to clarify what McCabe meant by labeling the Clinton probe “special”

“We don’t have anything to add to the documents that were released,” FBI spokeswoman Carol Cratty told The Hill.

On Wednesday, the FBI released more than 70 pages of emails on its public records website known as The Vault.

The McCabe email is among the newly released documents.

Recently released documents  show former FBI head James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton before the investigation into her email conduct had concluded. Even more concerning is “Mr. Comey even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership,” reports Townhall.

Townhall reports:

In addition to tweeting out Solomon’s piece with the phrase “Tick tock,” Hannity also posted a second piece from The Hill titled “Congressional investigators make first evidence requests in Russia nuclear bribery case.”

The Hill reports:

Republican House and Senate investigators on Wednesday launched their effort to secure evidence from federal agencies about an Obama-era Russian corruption case as lawmakers prepare to interview a former undercover informant who helped the FBI chronicle bribery, kickbacks and money laundering inside Moscow’s nuclear industry.

In letters to the FBI, Justice Department, Treasury Department and intelligence agencies, the congressional investigators demanded to know whether the evidence the FBI gathered starting in 2009 against figures inside Rosatom was circulated to government agencies before the Obama administration made a series of favorable decisions between 2010 and 2012 benefitting the Russian nuclear firm.
“It is unclear to the Committees whether the FBI alerted the other members of the CFIUS about the investigation into Russia’s effort to obtain control of the U.S. uranium market,” the House Intelligence and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committees letter reads. Devin Nunes (R-CA)Trey Gowdy, (R-SC) and Ron DeSantis, (R-FL) all signed the letter.

Judge Moore Attorney Demands Gloria Allred Accuser Release Yearbook After Gateway Pundit Raises Doubts (VIDEO)

An attorney for GOP Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore revealed Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson lied when she said no contact had been made between the Judge and herself following the alleged sexual advancement in 1977.

In addition, Moore’s attorney called on the accuser to release the yearbook to determine if it is indeed the Judge’s signature inside on it.

The Hill reports:

A lawyer for Alabama Senate GOP nominee Roy Moore on Wednesday suggested a yearbook signature presented by a woman accusing Moore of sexual assault could be fake.

[…]

Jauregui repeatedly noted Nelson’s association with the famous lawyer Gloria Allred, who represented women who accused President Trump of sexual misconduct, and called on them to release the yearbook for handwriting analysis.

“We demand you immediately release the yearbook to a neutral custodian so our expert can look at the actual document, release the yearbook so we can determine is it genuine or is it a fraud,” Jauregui told reporters in Birmingham.

[…]

The message read: “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A.”

Jauregui implied that the entire yearbook note was not written by the same person. And he claimed that the “D.A.” next to Moore’s name were the initials of his assistant at the time, a sign that the assistant had actually stamped Moore’s signature.

Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moore’s signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook is a forgery.

The sevens in 1977 to the right of “Christmas,” are very different from the sevens in the date (12-22-77) above “Old Hickory House.”

“Look at the two versions of the number “7,” tweeted Wictor.

“”12-22-77” and “Olde Hickory House” were written by a different person,” he added.

Next, Wictor points out “the “R” and “y” in “Roy,”” are not written the same way.

The inflection of the “Y” is more pronounced in Moore’ signature as Chief Justice. The “R” is noticeably longer in the  signature of Chief Justice, as well.

In addition, Wictor points out the restaurant where Nelson alleges the incident took place was “forged,” incorrectly.

“”Old Hickory House” in Gadsden was never called “Olde Hickory House.” The person who forged the signature got the name wrong,” claims Wictor.

The “forged,” signature also ends with “D.A.”

There’s one problem…

Moore was a Deputy District Attorney (DDA) at this time.

On Monday evening, Judge Moore vehemently denied Nelson’s accusations.

STATISTICIAN: Shady Poll By GOP Elites ‘Leaked To Get Judge Moore Out of the Race’

A new poll commissioned by the National Republican Senate Committee claims Alabama Democrat Senate candidate Doug Jones is leading Republican Judge Roy Moore by 12 points. 

Statistician Nate Silver implies the numbers may have been manipulated to pressure Moore out of the race.

“I wouldn’t put much stock in that NRSC poll showing Moore way down, which presumably was “leaked” in order to get him out of the race,” tweeted Silver.

Even leftist researcher at Right Wing Watch, Jared Holt, thinks the poll should be approached with “caution.”

Despite the onslaught waged by establishment Democrats and Republicans, Moore is still leading in the polls.

Moore is leading Jones 49% to 43%!

FOX News 10 reports:

Undecided voters may decide the Alabama U.S. Senate race between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore. The FOX10 News/Strategy Research statewide poll of 3,000 likely voters, taken on November 13, shows Moore leading Jones 49% to 43% with 8% undecided.

Of those who indicated they would vote in the December 12 election, Moore lost 3 percentage points from the poll two weeks ago while Jones showed a 2 percent increase in support. Undecided voters went from 7 percent to 8 percent.

Among typical Republican voters,  Moore showed an 8 percent loss of support from our latest FOX10 News poll two weeks ago while Jones picked up 3 percent.

UCLA Basketball Players Arrested For Shoplifting in China Thank POTUS Trump For Securing Release (VIDEO)

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were arrested for shoplighting sunglasses during a trip to Shanghai for a game against Georgia Tech. President Trump tweeted Wednesday that the players were facing 10 years in prison, despite earlier reports that they would serve 20 days under house arrest. 

“Do you think the three UCLA Basketball Players will say thank you President Trump? They were headed for 10 years in jail!,” tweeted the President.

At a press conference Wednesday, Cody Riley thanked President Trump for securing his release.

“To President Trump and the United States government, thank you for taking the time to intervene on our behalf,” UCLA basketball player Cody Riley said.

LiAngelo Ball also thanked President Trump.

LA Times reports:

Trump said Tuesday that he had spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping about the three athletes, who were taken into custody while in Hangzhou for a game against Georgia Tech.

Their teammates left China after the game, but freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were held until Tuesday, when they boarded a plane in Shanghai. When they arrived in Los Angeles, the three ignored reporters’ questions. They planned to speak at a news conference Wednesday.

The players have not explained the circumstances of their confinement, but Trump on Tuesday said that “what they did was unfortunate.”

“You know, you’re talking about very long prison sentences,” he said, then added of the Chinese: “They do not play games.”

At the press conference, UCLA men’s basketball coach Steve Alford said “I can’t thank enough the incredible folks here at UCLA, at the Pac-12 and even President Trump and his administration for the nonstop efforts to resolve this situation.”

REPORT: Audio Recordings Show Russian Officials Suggested Bribery to Bill & Hillary Clinton in Exchange for Favors

In an appearance Tuesday evening on Fox News program “Hannity,” author of “Clinton Cash,” Peter Schweizer told Sean Hannity that audio recordings reportedly show Russian officials suggesting they would be open to bribing Bill and Hillary Clinton in exchange for favors. 

Peter Schweitzer: “We now have this whistle-blower that has come forward who reportedly has audio recordings of Russian officials talking about using bribery to get favors from the Clintons, giving donations to the Clinton Foundation. That has yet to appear, but I think that will be pretty strong.”

Partial transcript as follows via Breitbart News:

HANNITY: Joining us now, the man who got the started, author of the book, “Clinton Cash,” Peter Schweizer, Fox News contributor, former deputy assistant to the President, Sebastian Gorka. Peter, you got this started, you watch this unfold today, and I want to get your initial reaction. I also want to talk about — I want you to give us the money aspect to this as it relates to the Clintons, who paid who, when and where, and how active and involved were they in this deal?

SCHWEIZER: Well, look, Sean, I’ve always felt the evidence was very clear. And I don’t know that hesitation is at the Department of Justice. There were several facts that no one debates. Fact number one, you have the Kazakh uranium minister Moukhtar Dzhakishev in a 2010 video deposition describing in great detail how Bill and Hillary Clinton shook him down and shook down Kazakh officials to compel them to give uranium assets to Frank Giustra, who is the founder of Uranium One. Nobody disputes that. That is clear.

We now have this whistle-blower that has come forward who reportedly has audio recordings of Russian officials talking about using bribery to get favors from the Clintons, giving donations to the Clinton Foundation. That has yet to appear, but I think that will be pretty strong. The third part of this ingredient is we have the actual flow of money. Tens of millions of dollars to the Clintons as this deal is going down.

[…]

HANNITY: Mueller knew as the FBI Director. It was an FBI informant. That means Holder had to know. They have not only has four-plus years’ experience as an undercover agent, informant, they also have tapes, and they also have documents, and they also have emails, and they slapped an NDA on this guy, like putting a muzzle on him. Wait until he now discloses this. I’m imaging this is devastating — Sebastian first.

[…]

HANNITY: It is so extensive because I keep talking about this dual justice system, Peter. It is the dossier, propaganda bought and paid for by Hillary and the DNC. It doesn’t make sense to give away our uranium, ever. I’ll give you the last word.

SCHWEIZER: Yeah, you are exactly right, Sean. And look, the Clinton defense thus far has been pitiful. Essentially they say, first of all, nine government agencies have reviewed this. That has nothing to do with bribery. The fact of the matter is bribery exist whether it’s a close vote or not. The second offense, Hillary Clinton is saying that she was not involved in the decision. I’m sorry, but she does not have a great track record of speaking the truth. The person that they sort of prop out, Assistant Secretary of State Fernandez to say she was not involved in this decision — four days before he first made that statement, Sean, he is in the Podesta email saying he wants to do whatever he can to help Hillary Clinton get elected. He is not a disinterested party. This has to be investigated.

News of the alleged recordings comes amid reports Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered senior federal prosecutors to evaluate whether or not a special counsel should investigate the Uranium One deal and “alleged unlawful dealings related to the Clinton Foundation.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) grilled Attorney General Jeff Sessions Tuesday on the alleged crimes connecting the Clinton Campaign, the Democrat Party, the FBI, James Comey and the Russian Dossier.

As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported, Rep. Jordan laid out the specific crimes of collusion committed by FBI and DNC operatives in 2016. Jordan pointed out the fake dossier and asked AG Sessions if this was the impetus to spy on the Trump campaign? Sessions would not answer.

At the end of the questioning Rep. Jordan asked Sessions if he would appoint a special counsel to investigate this deviant activity by the FBI and DNC.

Sessions told him he would not appoint a special counsel.

Rep. Jim Jordan: Doesn’t that warrant in addition to all the things we know about James Comey in 2016, doesn’t that warrant naming a second special counsel?

AG Jeff Sessions: I would say what it looks like is not enough basis to appoint a special counsel.

As The Gateway Pundit reported, disgruntled Republican lawmakers are beginning to voice the same displeasure over the inaction of Attorney General Jeff Sessions as many conservatives have for months. The calls for Sessions to investigate the corruption surrounding Hillary Clinton and James Comey are growing louder.

On Monday, GOP Congressmen Jim Jordan and Matt Gaertz called on Sessions to probe the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton private email use or resign.

Gen. Hayden Admits to CNN That China Sending Envoy to N. Korea Proves POTUS Trump’s Effectiveness (VIDEO)

Former CIA and NSA chief General Michael Hayden joined CNN’s Chris Cuomo Wednesday morning and praised President Trump’s effectiveness following reports that China will send an envoy to North Korea. 

Hayden had this to say after Cuomo asked him if China sending an envoy to North Korea is a sign of President Trump’s effectiveness:

“I think the timing suggests that’s true. So, you’ve got a bit of a ray of light, a breath of fresh air here with the Chinese trying to amp up there pressure on the North Koreans. We need to be realistic, all right? China is most interested in stability on the North Korean part, on the whole Korean peninsula. They’re not too excited about change. I think we can rely on them to amp up the pressure a bit, to have Kim, the youngest, tone down the rhetoric. Maybe stop testing for a while. I don’t think he’s going there to point out that you need to give up these weapons.”

“A senior Chinese diplomat will visit North Korea from Friday as a special envoy of Chinese President Xi Jinping, Beijing said, although it did not say he was planning to discuss North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic programs,” reports Reuters.

Reuters reports:

China has repeatedly pushed for a diplomatic solution to the crisis, but in recent months has had only limited high-level exchanges with North Korea. The last time China’s special envoy for North Korea visited the country was in February last year.

In a brief dispatch, the official Xinhua news agency said Song Tao, who heads the ruling Communist Party’s external affairs department, would leave for North Korea on Friday.

He will “inform the DPRK of the 19th CPC National Congress and visit the DPRK”, Xinhua said on Wednesday, using the North’s official name and referring to China’s recently concluded Communist Party Congress at which Xi further cemented his power.

News of the comes comes amid President Trump’s return to Washington following a 12-day trip to Asia.

Highlight’s of President Trump’s trip can be watched below.

Creepy Joe Biden Invades Personal Space of Female Reporter For Entire Interview (VIDEO)

While promoting his new book, “Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose,” former Vice President Joe Biden invaded the personal space of NBC Stay Tuned host Savannah Sellers for its entire duration.

While Sellers does her best to act casual as Biden stands less than a foot away from her, one can’t help but cringe watching the interview at times.

NBC News served up the clip with the tag line, “Former Vice President Biden talks about his regrets, DACA, and whether or not he’ll run in 2020 with NBC Stay Tuned host Savannah Sellers.”

Sellers kicks off the interview by asking Biden how he selected the title of his book. Biden explains the title is based off his son Beau Biden’s urging that he remain engaged in public policy.

“There is hope in purpose,” Biden tells Sellers while tightly squeezing her hands.

Biden then laughs off how at times its hard to watch President Trump govern.

Biden, leaning in closely to Sellers, then rips President Trump’s position on DACA.

“These kids are Americans!,” Biden says.

The former Vice President concedes calling DACA recipients “America,” sounds “corny.”

Sellers then asks Biden if he regrets not running in 2016.

“No, because I knew I wasn’t emotionally ready,” Biden admits.

Pressed if he will run in 2020, Biden told Sellers “I don’t know what I’m going to do.”

MUST SEE=> Roy Moore Signature Inside Accuser’s Yearbook Is Written in TWO DIFFERENT COLOR Inks

Following The Gateway Pundit’s viral story on Judge Roy Moore’s alleged signature inside accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook, more evidence suggests it may be a forgery. 

On Monday, CNN published photos of the signature showing two different inks.

The signature says “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House.”

Strangely, “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say, ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy,” is written in black ink, while “Moore DA, 12-22-77, Olde Hickory House,” is in blue ink.

Known for his insightful take on politics, journalist and author Thomas Wictor believes Judge Roy Moore’s signature in Gloria Allred accuser Beverly Young Nelson’s yearbook is a forgery.

The sevens in 1977 to the right of “Christmas,” are very different from the sevens in the date (12-22-77) above “Old Hickory House.”

“Look at the two versions of the number “7,” tweeted Wictor.

“”12-22-77” and “Olde Hickory House” were written by a different person,” he added.

Next, Wictor points out “the “R” and “y” in “Roy,”” are not written the same way.

The inflection of the “Y” is more pronounced in Moore’ signature as Chief Justice. The “R” is noticeably longer in the  signature of Chief Justice, as well.

Here’s another side by side of Moore’s signatures…

The one on the right looks a lot more like his Chief Justice signature.

In addition, Wictor points out the restaurant where Nelson alleges the incident took place was “forged,” incorrectly.

“”Old Hickory House” in Gadsden was never called “Olde Hickory House.” The person who forged the signature got the name wrong,” claims Wictor.

The “forged,” signature also ends with “D.A.”

There’s one problem…

Moore was a Deputy District Attorney (DDA) at this time.

“During his legal career, Judge Moore became the first full-time Deputy District Attorney in Etowah County, Alabama, and served in this position from 1977 until 1982. In 1984, Judge Moore undertook private practice of law in Gadsden, Alabama,” states Moore’s bio on his campaign website.

“The accuser to this day calls him the District Attorney. He was NEVER District attorney. He was DEPUTY DA. DDA,” says Wictor.

When pressed on whether he truly believes the signature is a forgery, Wictor replied, “In my opinion, the signature is forged. The “Olde Hickory House” and date were DEFINITELY written by someone else. No question whatsoever.”

Then there’s this– Who signs a yearbook in December?
