Hillary Clinton, Who Colluded With The Russians, Questions The Legitimacy Of The 2016 Elections Because….Russia

Failed former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is now directly questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 elections, citing the discredited deep state narrative that Donald Trump worked with the Russians as one of her reasons despite the fact that her own campaign colluded with “Russian sources” to spread disinformation about President Trump through what would eventually become known as the “Trump dossier.”

Clinton made the comments in a wide ranging interview with the always friendly Mother Jones Senior Reporter Ari Berman where she stated that there are many questions about the actual legitimacy of the last presidential election in which she lost.

During the interview Berman asked Clinton, “So between the Republican voter suppression you talked about and Russian interference, do you think it was a legitimate election?”

“I think that there are lots of questions about its legitimacy, and we don’t have a method for contesting that in our system. That’s why I’ve long advocated for an independent commission to get to the bottom of what happened. Because, look, this is the first time we’ve ever been attacked by a foreign adversary, and then they suffer no real consequences,” Clinton replied.

“And so, I’m worried that we’re not learning all the lessons, it’s one of the reasons why I wrote the book. Because I wanted people at least to understand what I saw as the factors, including shortcomings of myself and my campaign. But the forces at work outside my campaign are not going away. Somebody else is going to be running for Congress, or governor, or eventually president. We’ve got to know how to protect ourselves.”

Berman then attempted to get Clinton to double down by specifically clarifying that she was stating she had questions about the election itself. Clinton happily obliged.

“I do, sure. Because I think, as we learn more about it, we know that the web of connections between people on Trump’s team and Russian representatives just gets more and more dense.”

The interview is flabbergasting to say the least, especially when you consider that some of the reasons cited by Clinton are literally exactly what she and her campaign actually carried out themselves!

Remember, it has already been revealed that Clinton’s campaign paid opposition research firm Fusion GPS to find dirt on then candidate Donald Trump. Fusion GPS then hired former British spy Christopher Steele who turned to his admittedly Russian sources to come up with the now infamous Trump dossier.

“That’s right, in a literal reverse of what the entire mainstream media has fed the American people for over a year, we now have evidence that, either wittingly or unwittingly, the Clinton campaign and the DNC paid for what amounted to disinformation that came directly from “Russian sources,” I reported for SHTFplan in an article about Hillary’s collusion with Russia.

“Obviously this may seem truly unbelievable to some, but the facts speak for themselves and there is no denying that Democrats paid a shady opposition research company to try and dig up dirt on Donald Trump who then subsequently hired former British spy Christopher Steele. Steele then openly used Russian sources for most of the serious allegations in the Russia dossier.”

Amazingly, it was the mainstream media themselves that revealed that Steele’s paid sources were Russians, long before it was confirmed that the Clinton campaign had paid for the entire operation.

Buried deep in a report by Vanity Fair that spends thousands of words trying to pretend that the dossier could be legitimate, is this nugget that paints a picture of direct or indirect collusion between the Clinton team and Russia.

How good were these sources? Consider what Steele would write in the memos he filed with Simpson: Source A—to use the careful nomenclature of his dossier—was “a senior Russian Foreign Ministry figure.” Source B was “a former top level intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin.” And both of these insiders, after “speaking to a trusted compatriot,” would claim that the Kremlin had spent years getting its hooks into Donald Trump.

Source E was “an ethnic Russian” and “close associate of Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump.”

It is cut and dry. Hillary Clinton is now attempting to stir up even more anti-Trump sentiment by questioning the election itself when there is documented evidence that money from her campaign was used to gather disinformation from Russia to hurt Donald Trump.

This is a confirmed reality yet Clinton was predictably not questioned on this shocking hypocrisy by the liberal reporter who most likely shares Clinton’ reverse reality beliefs as well.

WikiLeaks Tells Trump: “Seth Rich Was DNC Leaker”

November 17, 2017 1 comment

Julian Assange confirmed to Donald Trump Jr. that Seth Rich was the person who leaked DNC emails to WikiLeaks.

In a direct message conversation between Trump Jr. and WikiLeaks – Assange points Trump to a website with a header that states: “My Name Was Seth Rich.”

“Strongly suggest your dad tweets this link if he mentions us,” WikiLeaks said in the conversation, directing Trump to visit “wlsearch.tk.”

Bigleaguepolitics.com reports:

When you click on the side menu, the only option is a category titled “Seth Rich.” The link takes users to a page that reads, “You finally found me! I’m the source of the John Podesta/DNC Email hacks. I’ve been waiting so long for you to join me.”

The message makes it clear that the site has been edited since the conversation by referring to the exchange with Trump Jr. It is unclear if the site was hacked or if it was deliberately edited by someone associated with WikiLeaks.

“Thanks to Wikileaks and Trump Jr you’ll all soon know why Hillary Clinton and John Podesta had me killed,” the website reads. “As you can see I’m no Russian agent. I was just a proud DNC staffer who believed in the system until I found out Hillary Clinton and the DNC rigged the primaries against my candidate Bernie Sanders. That’s when I decided to take action and release these emails to Wikileaks.”

The home page continues on to assert that “John Podesta was determined to make an example out of me and had me taken care of. Why did you think they didn’t let the FBI examine the DNC servers? Yep, those servers would have lead them straight to me. John couldn’t let that happen.”

The website continues on to claim that Podesta is a pedophile.

“Thanks again Wikileaks for upping my reward to solve my murder. I wonder why you’d do that for me? Oh, you are trying to tell the world I was your source. Whoops cat’s outta the bag now,” the page concludes.

WikiLeaks made headlines in 2016 when they offered a $20,000 reward for information on the murderer of the slain DNC staffer. The website’s founder Julian Assange also mentioned Rich during an appearance on Dutch television.

“Whistleblowers go to significant efforts to get us material and often significant risks. There was a 27-year old that works for the DNC who was shot in the back… murdered.. for unknown reasons as he was walking down the street in Washington,” Assange said during an interview with Dutch TV last year. When asked by the host if he would suggest that Rich was involved, he stated that “we have to understand how high the stakes are in the United States and that our sources face serious risks… that’s why they come to us so we can protect their anonymity.”

Additionally, as Kim Dotcom began to assert that he knows for a fact that Rich was the leaker, Assange sent out an ominous tweet using the hashtag #SethRich. He asserted that while he would never name a leaker, sometimes others may.

Rich was shot in the back in the early morning hours of July 10, 2016, near his home while he was on the phone with his girlfriend — 12 days before the publication of the DNC emails by the controversial publisher. The police initially ruled that it was a botched robbery — but his wallet, watch, and necklace were still on his person when he was discovered by police.

Big League Politics has reached out to Julian Assange and WikiLeaks for comment and will update this story if more information becomes available.

 

BREAKING: New Jersey Man Sentenced As Clinton Uranium One Scandal Unravels

November 15, 2017 Leave a comment

 

Theodore Chuang, Maryland’s U.S. District Judge, sentenced Boris Rubizhevsky of Closter, New Jersey to “a year and a day” in prison. The 67-year-old will also face three years of supervised release and a $26,500 fine. Charged with conspiracy to commit money laundering, Boris was the middleman in the Uranium One scheme. His role was “arranging bribes for the awarding of contracts with Russia’s state-owned nuclear energy corporation,” the U.S. Justice Department announced in a statement Monday.

In the five years between 2009, when the F.B.I. started documenting Vadim Mikerin’s money laundering conspiracy, and 2015, when he was finally charged, the Obama administration and the Clintons made quite a few shady moves indicating heavy collusion with Russia. During that time period, nearly $145 million from Russian accounts was funneled to Bill Clinton’s foundation while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. She also sat, along with Eric Holder, on the Committee on Foreign Investment.

All the way back in 2010, Obama and his cronies signed off on “the Uranium One deal” handing control of a fifth of our nation’s uranium extraction capacity to Mikerin’s company TENEX, a subsidiary of Russian atomic energy corporation “Rosatom.” The arrangement resulted in billions of dollars worth of contracts. Then, in 2011, Obama okayed a Rosatom subsidiary “to sell uranium to U.S. nuclear power plants.” At the time, Mikerin was in charge of uranium shipments from Russia. The “Megatons to Megawatts” program extracted uranium from Russian nuclear warheads to be used in U.S. civilian nuclear power plants.

“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.” an inside source recalls. Mikerin pled guilty to charges he “did knowingly and willfully combine, conspire confederate and agree with other persons … to obstruct, delay and affect commerce and the movement of an article and commodity (enriched uranium) in commerce by extortion.” They had hard evidence in 2009 but the Department of “Justice” did nothing for years.

Mike Rogers (R-Michigan) is just learning about the “breathtaking” evidence that Russia was able to manipulate our nuclear energy industry. He didn’t call it a coverup but came close. “Many lawmakers back then had serious concerns about the Uranium One deal. Not providing information on a corruption scheme before the Russian uranium deal was approved by U.S. regulators and engage appropriate congressional committees has served to undermine U.S. national security interests by the very people charged with protecting them.”

Despite the F.B.I. and Justice Department investigations that court records prove were open against Mikerin in 2009, The Obama administration granted him a temporary work visa in December of 2011. They even renewed it in August 2014, just a few weeks before he was “arrested and charged with extortion.”

When Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), learned of this just recently, he shot a terse letter off to Rex Tillerson and Elaine Duke. He told the Secretary of State and the Acting Homeland Security Secretary how much the issue bothers him. “It is concerning that a suspected criminal was able to apply for and renew a work visa while being under FBI investigation.”

Grassley wants to interview the informant who worked undercover to obtain the underlying evidence. Until recently, he has been silenced by a government gag order. The restrictions were lifted but he hasn’t testified yet.

Meanwhile, his attorney has confirmed that the informant was certain everything he said was relayed up the chain of command all the way to Obama, directly through F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller.

While he does not have “firsthand knowledge of what was in the president’s daily briefings, he was told unequivocally by the agents that information from the bribery case had been shared with the president and other senior officials and was given praise for providing that evidence,” attorney Victoria Toensing asserts.

The same Robert Mueller is currently acting as “witch smeller” in charge of the inquisition, determined to find or create, an appearance of collusion between President Trump and the Russians. More and more evidence is piling up that Mueller turned a blind eye to already proven Russian collusion involving Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, their charitable organizations, Barack Obama and others in the Obama administration. Despite his obvious conflict of interest, Mueller still refuses to step down. Some in Congress are calling for a Special Counsel to be appointed to look into it.

Congress: Fusion GPS Paid Journalists To Spread ‘Russian Collusion’ Narrative

November 11, 2017 Leave a comment

Congress has obtained evidence that Fusion GPS bribed journalists to make phoney reports on Russian interference in the 2016 election. 

Rep. Devin Nunes is demanding that Fusion GPS, the firm behind the debunked “Piss-gate dossier,” submit its banking records to the House Intelligence Committee so it can investigate whether payments were funnelled to reporters at various left-leaning outlets.

According to the Washington Times, Rep. Devin Nunes, California Republican and chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, signed a subpoena to force a bank to turn over Fusion’s financial records. He wants to know who paid for the dossier, which was written in a series of 18 memos by former British spy Christopher Steele. He relied almost exclusively on unidentified Kremlin sources.

Fusion went to federal court to block the move, but the law firm Perkins Coie LLP, whose partner Marc E. Elias is the Clinton’s campaign’s general counsel, intervened. It filed a letter acknowledging it had paid Fusion for the dossier on behalf of Democrats. Fusion and Mr. Nunes then worked out an agreement on access to some of the firm’s financial records.

But the dispute heightened again Friday as Fusion renewed its request for a judge to block the subpoena because Mr. Nunes wants more information. The widened net includes the names of journalists and law firms that Fusion might have paid.

Thegatewaypundit.com reports: The House Intelligence Committee announced it has reached a deal to obtain Fusion GPS’s bank records after the firm behind the ‘Trump dossier,’ moved to block access. Unfortunately, the bank records will be confidential under sealed protective order.

“House Intel Committee reaches deal to secure Fusion GPS’ bank records; the company produced dossier alleging Trump-Russia links,” tweeted ABC News on Saturday afternoon.

The Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross pointed out the bank records are under protective order.

“Federal judge places Fusion GPS bank records under sealed protective order. Will remain confidential,” tweeted Ross.

As The Gateway Pundit previously reported, Fusion GPS  requested a U.S. District judge to block investigators from accessing its bank records. Not so fast, says the House Intelligence Committee, who filed a motion demanding Fusion GPS obey the subpoena to reveals its past financial transactions. According to Kimberley A. Strassel of the Wall Street Journal, ‘the coming Russia bombshells,’ may come to light if a ‘judge orders Fusion GPS to give House investigators its bank records.’

27 Excuses Hillary Clinton Has Made for Her 2016 Election Loss

November 10, 2017 Leave a comment

Penny Starr

Since losing the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s blame list for the loss has continued to grow and, to date, includes at least 27 sources responsible for her defeat.

And as President Donald Trump pointed out in a tweet in September, that long list doesn’t routinely include Clinton, herself.

“Crooked Hillary Clinton blames everybody (and every thing) but herself for her election loss. She lost the debates and lost her direction!” Trump tweeted.

Here is a list of the 26 people, groups, ideologies – and even those who thought she would win – that Clinton blames for her failure to be elected president one year ago. The list was compiled by media outlets, including the UK Daily Mail, the BBC, the Daily Wire and Breitbart News.

James Comey

Clinton told the Today show on September 13 — her first interview since losing to Trump:

“I was just dumbfounded,” Clinton said. “I thought, what is he doing? The investigation is closed. I knew there was no new information. And then it became clear. This was not necessary.”

“Absent that, I believe, and I think the evidence shows, I would have won,” Clinton said.

The FBI

“The FBI wasn’t the Federal Bureau of Ifs or Innuendoes,” Clinton wrote in her book What Happened. “Its job was to find out the facts.”

Vladimir Putin

“There’s no doubt in my mind that Putin wanted me to lose and wanted Trump to win,’ Clinton told USA Today.

In December, the New York Times obtained audio that revealed Clinton said to donors: “Putin publicly blamed me for the outpouring of outrage by his own people, and that is the direct line between what he said back then and what he did in this election.”

The Russians

Clinton has publicly blamed the Russians on numerous occasions, including the Codecon convention in May when she said that “1,000 Russian agents” had filled Facebook with “fake news.”

Clinton told NPR, “My path toward November was being disrupted with Russians.”

WikiLeaks

Clinton told NPR in September: “Unfortunately, the Comey letter, aided to great measure by the Russian WikiLeaks, raised all those doubts again.”

And in her book What Happened Clinton said of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange:

“In my view, Assange is a hypocrite who deserves to be held accountable for his actions.”

Low information voters

“You put yourself in the position of a low information voter, and all of a sudden your Facebook feed, your Twitter account is saying, ‘Oh my gosh, Hillary Clinton is running a child trafficking operation in Washington with John Podesta,’” Clinton told the Codecon convention in May.

The Electoral College

“We have an electoral college problem,” Clinton told Vox, adding that she has called for its abolishment since 2000.

Breitbart News and other conservative media

Clinton said that her campaign was hampered by the “dedicated propaganda channels” on the right.

“That’s what I call Fox News,” Clinton said. “It has outlets like Breitbart and crazy Infowars and things like that.”

“They have a mission,” Clinton said. “They use the rights given to them under the First Amendment to advocate a set of policies that are in their interests, their commercial, corporate, religious interests.”

Steve Bannon

Clinton claims donors convinced Trump to hire Bannon, who was chief strategist for President Donald Trump and is executive chairman of Breitbart News.

“We will marry that with the RNC on two conditions: You pick Steve Bannon, and you pick Kellyanne Conway,” said Clinton, who also targets Bannon in an “alt-right” campaign speech.

“‘And then we’re in.’ Trump says, ‘Fine, who cares,’ right? So Bannon, who’d been running the Breitbart operation, supplying a lot of the untrue, false stories … they married content with delivery and data.”

Anti-American Forces

“I think it’s important that we learn the real lessons from this last campaign because the forces that we are up against are not just interested in influencing our elections and our politics, they’re going after our economy, and they’re going after our unity as a nation,” Clinton told Codecon in May.

Everyone who predicted she would win

“I was the victim of a very broad assumption that I was going to win,’ Clinton told the Codecon convention.

Polls

“I think polling is going to have to undergo some revisions in how they actually measure people,’ Clinton told the Codecon convention.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein

“In each state, there were more than enough Stein voters to swing the result, just like Ralph Nader did in Florida and New Hampshire in 2000,” Clinton wrote in her book What Happened.

“The best assessments as of right now are that the polling was not that inaccurate, but it was predominantly national polling and I won nationally,” Clinton said.

President Barack Obama

“No non-incumbent Democrat had run successfully to succeed another two-termer since Vice President Martin Van Buren won in 1836,” Clinton wrote in her book What Happened.

White Women

“I believe absent Comey, I might’ve picked up one or two points among white women,” Clinton told Vox.

The New York Times

Clinton singled out managing editor Dean Baquet for the media outlet’s coverage of her email scandal.

“They covered it like it was Pearl Harbor,” Clinton said.

Bernie Sanders

“His attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s ‘Crooked Hillary’ campaign,” Clinton wrote in her book What Happened.

“I don’t know if that bothered Bernie or not,” Clinton said.

Bernie Sanders supporters

“Some of his supporters, the so-called Bernie Bros, took to harassing my supporters online. It got ugly and more than a little sexist,” Clinton wrote in her book What Happened.

Brexit leader Nigel Farage

“You had Farage campaigning for Trump,” Clinton said and added that Farage’s argument for the UK leaving the European Union was a “big lie.”

“The big lie is a very potent tool,” Clinton said.

Misogyny or Sexism

CNN’s Christine Amanpour at the Women for Women International event in New York in May asked Clinton if misogyny was to blame, and she said, “Yes, I do think it played a role.”

“I never said I was a perfect candidate, and I certainly have never said I ran perfect campaigns, but I don’t know who is or did,” Clinton said. “And at some point it sort of bleeds into misogyny.”

Facebook

“If you look at Facebook the vast majority of the news items posted were fake,” Clinton told the Codecon conference.

Campaign Finance

“You had Citizens United come to its full fruition,” Clinton told Codecon in May.

“So unaccountable money flowing in against me, against other Democrats, in a way that we hadn’t seen and then attached to this weaponized information war.”

The Media

“American journalists who eagerly and uncritically repeated whatever WikiLeaks dished out during the campaign could learn from the responsible way the French press handled the hack of Macron,” Clinton wrote in her book What Happened.

Women who didn’t vote

Clinton then recounts a moment when a mother dragged her daughter by the arm to apologize for not voting.

“I wanted to stare right in her eyes and say, ‘You didn’t vote? How could you not vote?! You abdicated your responsibility as a citizen at the worst possible time! And now you want me to make you feel better?’” Clinton wrote in her book What Happens.

“I couldn’t help but ask where those feelings of solidarity, outrage, and passion had been during the election,” Clinton wrote in her book about the protest march against President Trump that took place after his election.

White Voters

“White voters have been fleeing the Democratic party ever since Lyndon Johnson predicted they would,” Clinton told Vox.

Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY)

“Mitch McConnell, in what I think of as a not only unpatriotic but despicable act of partisan politics, made it clear that if the Obama Administration spoke publicly about what they knew [on Russia], he would accuse them of partisan politics, of trying to tip the balance toward me,” Clinton told the New Yorker.

Men

Clinton told Vox that because of the Comey letter, men convinced their partners not to vote for her.

‘”You know, all of a sudden, the husband turns to the wife, ‘Pshh, I told you she’s going to be in jail. You don’t want to waste your vote,’” she said. “You know, the boyfriend turns to the girlfriend and says, ‘She’s going to get locked up. Don’t you hear? She’s going to get locked up.’”

First Comey Memo Concluded Hillary Was Punishable By Jail

November 8, 2017 Leave a comment

(Zero Hedge) According to a new report from The Hill, early drafts of former FBI Director James Comey’s statement on Hillary Clinton’s email case accused the former Secretary of State of “gross negligence” in her handling of classified information as opposed to the “extremely careless” phrase that made its way into the final statement.

As The Hill further points out, the change in language is significant since federal law states that “gross negligence” in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines whereas “extreme carelessness” has no such legal definition and/or ramifications.

An early draft of former FBI Director James Comey’s statement closing out the Hillary Clinton email case accused the former Secretary of State of having been ‘grossly negligent” in handling classified information, new memos to Congress show.

RELATED: James Comey Destroyed By Anonymous FBI Agent’s Letter

The tough language was changed to the much softer accusation that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information when Comey announced in July 2016 there would be no charges against her.

The draft, written weeks before the announcement of no charges, was described by multiple sources who saw the document both before and after it was sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee this past weekend.

“There is evidence to support a conclusion that Secretary Clinton, and others, used the email server in a manner that was grossly negligent with respect to the handling of classified information,” reads the statement, one of Comey’s earliest drafts…

Manhattan DA to seek Weinstein indictment next week

Manhattan DA to seek Weinstein indictment next week

Larry Celona and Rebecca Rosenberg

The Manhattan district attorney will seek an indictment against Harvey Weinstein sometime next week, according to law enforcement sources.

The NYPD has been building a case against the predatory producer for allegedly raping actress Paz de la Huerta twice in 2010.

Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said last week the department is sharing information with DA Cy Vance’s office and the next step would be to obtain an arrest warrant to pick up Weinstein in Arizona, where he is in rehab.

But Vance instead plans on presenting a case to a grand jury first and waiting for an indictment, the sources said.
