Vengeful in defeat: Hillary Clinton fantasizes about WikiLeaks

by Binoy Kampmark

“The Hillary Clinton mope tour, which should have reached a high water mark, has gone global. It entails drumming up her credentials (immaculate, we are told, but unnoticed), and pouring upon the man who beat her to the White house (a danger to the world). The latter is the fundamental point: Donald Trump would not have won, not because of Clinton’s flaws but because of what others did. One of those big others remains WikiLeaks. The other, supposedly, is its Russian ally — no, employer, sponsor, even, there one say it peering into that dark mind of hers, director-in-chief. Forget Assange, claims Clinton — the Kremlin is running the operation. … No evidence is offered. For Clinton, nothing needs to be tested, her defeat obviously the result, not of an appalling election team (remember that slave to the algorithm, Robby Mook?) and her own woes as a candidate, but to the role played by information marshalled against her.” (10/19/17)


FBI informant blocked from telling Congress about Russia/Clinton nuclear corruption case, lawyer says

Source: The Hill

“An American businessman who worked for years undercover as an FBI confidential witness was blocked by the Obama Justice Department from telling Congress about conversations and transactions he witnessed related to the Russian nuclear industry’s efforts to win favor with Bill and Hillary Clinton and influence Obama administration decisions, his lawyer tells The Hill. Attorney Victoria Toensing, a former Reagan Justice Department official and former chief counsel of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Tuesday she is working with members of Congress to see if they can get the Trump Justice Department or the FBI to free her client to talk to lawmakers. … Toensing said she also possesses memos that recount how the Justice Department last year threatened her client when he attempted to file a lawsuit that could have drawn attention to the Russian corruption during the 2016 election as well as helped him recover some of the monies Russians stole from him through kickbacks during the FBI probe.” (10/18/17)


Hillary Clinton: Cold creepiness with a side of corruption

by Thomas L Knapp

“On October 16, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took her public pity party (and not so subtle hopes of somehow magically overturning the 2016 election) abroad, calling out WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as ‘a tool of Russian intelligence …. a kind of nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator’ in an interview on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s show ‘Four Corners.’ Clinton’s evidenceless accusations don’t seem to carry much weight with Assange himself. He doesn’t find her ‘a credible person.’ ‘It is not just her constant lying,’ he says. ‘It is not just that she throws off menacing glares and seethes thwarted entitlement. Something much darker rides along with it. A cold creepiness rarely seen.’ Was Clinton’s latest lunge at Assange and WikiLeaks a preemptive strike? An attempt, perhaps, to get ahead of extreme ugliness in the coming news cycle?” (10/18/17)


Trump calls Comey’s treatment of Clinton email probe “obviously a fix,” calls for Justice Department to investigate

Source: Business Insider

“President Donald Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning saying the 2016 probe into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for her work as Secretary of State was ‘obviously a fix.’ … In a second post, Trump claimed that many people were not interviewed before Comey’s draft. He said the investigation was ‘obviously a fix’ and called on the Justice Department to investigate. On Monday, the FBI released a heavily redacted version of the letter Comey drafted before interviewing Clinton and other key witnesses in the 2016 probe, confirming earlier reports.” (10/18/17)


Bitter loser Hillary Clinton tries again to put over “Assange colluded with Russia” whopper

Source: ABC News [Australia]

“Julian Assange has launched a personal attack on Hillary Clinton, accusing her of lying and displaying a ‘cold creepiness’ after the former US presidential candidate told the ABC the WikiLeaks founder is a ‘tool of Russian intelligence.’ In an exclusive interview with Four Corners, Mrs Clinton alleged Mr Assange colluded with a Russian intelligence operation to disrupt the 2016 US election and damage her candidacy for president. ‘Assange has become a kind of nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator,’ she said. ‘WikiLeaks is unfortunately now practically a fully owned subsidiary of Russian intelligence.'” [editor’s note: She’s had it in for Assange and WikiLeaks ever since they exposed her illegal orders to wiretap UN diplomatic offices and other crimes as US Secretary of State, presaging the train wreck her second presidential campaign was going to be – TLK] (10/16/17)


FBI says it uncovered Russian bribery plot before Clinton pushed through nuclear deal

Source: New York Post

“The FBI had evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s energy business in the US before the Obama administration approved a deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, a new report said Tuesday. The feds used a confidential US witness working inside the Russian nuclear industry to gather records, make secret recordings and intercept emails as early as 2009 that showed Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm with bribes and kickbacks …. Russian nuclear officials also sent millions of dollars to the US designed to benefit the Clinton Foundation while then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on a government body that smoothed the way for the sale of the US uranium interests.” (10/17/17)


FBI releases early draft of Comey’s Clinton statement

“The FBI posted a document Monday that suggests former FBI Director James Comey began drafting what became his infamous July 2016 statement about Hillary Clinton’s private server months ahead of time, releasing a heavily redacted copy of the exchange. The bureau posted the document to its ‘Vault’ Freedom of Information Act reading room, titled ‘Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation Part 01 of 01.’ The five-page document included a list of nearly 50 deleted pages and a mostly redacted email chain titled ‘Midyear Exam.'” (10/16/17)


O that wacky gerrymandering

“Hillary Clinton: always wrong. Oh, I’m sure that when she tells the maid ‘We need milk,’ she’s accurate enough. Otherwise — forget it. Her latest howlers pertain to the movement to convene a Convention of States. If two thirds of the states call for the convention, it ‘will be’ convened, per the U.S. Constitution. If 38 states approve a convention-proposed amendment, it will be added to the Constitution. Different pro-convention groups support different amendments, on everything from a balanced budget to spending limits to term limits. U.S. Term Limits is promoting a Term Limits Convention to propose an amendment for congressional term limits. A great idea. Clinton, though, sees calamity …” (09/29/17)


We are at war — so what else is new?

by Paul Jacob

“Hillary Clinton, who didn’t get a majority of all votes and who lost in the Electoral College, keeps on grinding through her long list of people who failed her. Her nuttiest charge, that ‘Russia ‘Hacked’ the election,’ reached its apogee, last week, in the bizarre video featuring Morgan Freeman. The actor, who’s played both the President and God, intones that ‘We have been attacked; we are at war.’ Financed by a cobbled-together Committee to Investigate Russia, the notion seems to be: stretch Hillary Clinton’s conspiracy theory into the talking points for … a coup d’etat. Congress is, of course, investigating ‘what Russia did.’ Unearthed, so far? Not much.” (09/25/17)


Push to unseal the draft Whitewater indictment against Hillary Clinton gets court date

“A federal appeals court will hear a case brought by Judicial Watch on Friday to make public draft indictments of Hillary Clinton from the Whitewater scandal in the 1990s. Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group that files Freedom of Information Act requests, wants copies of the documents that the National Archives and Records Administration has declined to release. … The documents in question are alleged drafts of indictments written by Hickman Ewing, the chief deputy of Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel appointed to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton’s alleged involvement in fraudulent real estate dealings. Although others were sentenced for their role in the matter, neither Clinton was ever prosecuted.” (09/20/17)
