A key member of Facebook’s ministry of truth, Snopes, has hit a major snag which may force them out of business. Apparently too cheap or stupid to run a contract for their primary source of income past an attorney, the ‘arbiters of truth’ appear to be in major financial trouble after claiming a vendor is holding ad revenues hostage, and have set up a gofundme page which has raised $130,000 of it’s $500,000 goal within hours.
We had previously contracted with an outside vendor to provide certain services for Snopes.com. That contractual relationship ended earlier this year, but the vendor will not acknowledge the change in contractual status and continues to essentially hold the Snopes.com web site hostage.
Unfortunately, we have been cut off from our historic source of advertising income. –savesnopes.com
That outside vendor was none other than San Diego based Proper Media, which bought out Snopes co-founder Barbara Mikkelson’s share in the company for $3.6 million following a nasty divorce.
Established in 2003, Bardav, Inc. was the joint venture of Snopes creator David Mikkelson and his then-wife Barbara Mikkelson, who each owned one share and 50 percent of the company. The couple divorced in 2015. In July of 2016, Barbara sold her stake to Proper Media’s five equity holders for $3.6 million.
Prior to the sale, Bardav had contracted Proper Media for web development and advertising services on Snopes.com, with the companies agreeing to split revenue earned from advertisements.
In May, Proper Media filed suit against Bardav and Mikkelson with the San Diego Superior Court of California over ownership of the site, alleging that Mikkelson attempted to gain control over the business and block Proper Media from its share of profits. Snopes counter sued, arguing that Proper Media has not paid Snopes its share of advertising revenue since March. Motions by both the plaintiffs and defendants are scheduled to be heard on Aug. 4.
The arrangement with Proper Media follows revelations that David Mikkelson secret PayPal account to allegedly funnel advertising revenue from Snopes into his personal accounts so that he could travel around the world banging whores behind his wife’s back – according to court documents obtained by Wesearcher / Gotnews.
Eight weeks after Debbie Wasserman Schultz publicly threatened the chief of DC Capitol Police with ‘consequences‘ if he didn’t turn over a confiscated laptop used by Pakistani IT staffers employed by over 30 House and Senate democrats to run their networks, the Daily Caller reports that the FBI has seized more equipment from the garage of a house owned by Imran Awan and his wife Alvi after a tenant called investigators.
Per the Daily Caller:
FBI agents seized smashed computer hard drives from the home of Florida Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s information technology (IT) administrator, according to an individual who was interviewed by Bureau investigators in the case and a high level congressional source.
The congressional source, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the probe, confirmed that the FBI has joined what Politico previously described as a Capitol Police criminal probe into “serious, potentially illegal, violations on the House IT network” by Imran and three of his relatives, who had access to the emails and files of the more than two dozen House Democrats who employed them on a part-time basis.
Fellow IT staffers interviewed by TheDCNF said the Awans were often absent from weekly meetings and email exchanges. One of the fellow staffers said some of the computers the Awans managed were being used to transfer data to an off-site server.
Shortly after the criminal probe was revealed in February, Imran abruptly moved out of his longtime home on Hawkshead Drive in Lorton, Va., and listed it for rent on a website that connects landlords with military families.
The new tenants were none other than a retired Marine and his active duty Navy wife. In the garage, they found “wireless routers, hard drives that look like they tried to destroy, laptops, [and] a lot of brand new expensive toner.”
After hearing about the House investigation into the Awans on the radio, the tenants called the Navy Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), and shortly thereafter the FBI and Capitol Police became involved.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity over concerns for his wife’s naval career, the former Marine told the Daily Caller:
“It was in the garage. They recycled cabinets and lined them along the walls. They left in a huge hurry,” the Marine said. “It looks like government-issued equipment. We turned that stuff over.”
Threats and Desperation
After the equipment was discovered in the garage, Imran Awan came to the rented house “three or four times,” but the marine wouldn’t let him enter. “Their lawyer contacted us today via email and said we owed $350 in late charges and the items he left in the house,” the retired Marine said.
When this didn’t work, the Awans reportedly threatened to sue the tenants for “stealing” the equipment.
The Awans – personal friends of Debbie Wasserman Shultz, have collected over 4 million dollars since 2009 working on the hill. They were “shared employees,” hired by multiple Democrats for IT work whenever it was needed – floating all over the place doing all sorts of work on House members computers. Democrats Juaquin Castro, Cedric Richmond, Andre Carson, Jackie Speier, Tammy Duckworth, and Louis Frankel all employed the Awans.
The Pakistanis also managed computers for members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence – all of whom have top secret clearance and are looking into Russian election influence. Furthermore, it has been rumored that the Awans are blackmailing members of Congerss with secrets gleaned from emails.
Imran Awan had access to Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s iPad password, meaning that the brothers also had direct access to the notorious DNC emails.
The brothers are accused of removing hundreds of thousands of dollars of equipment from congressional offices, including computers and servers, while also running a procurement scheme in which they bought equipment, then overcharged the House administrative office that assigns such contractors to members.
After they caught wind of an investigation, Imran’s wife Abid fled the country to Pakistan, “where her family has significant assets and VIP-level protection.”
Imprisoned their stepmother to bilk inheritance money
THREE DAYS before U.S. Capitol Police told House members about the Awans, their stempmother called Fairfax County, Virginia police report she was imprisoned in their house – kept from her husband’s deathbed. Oh, and they were bugging her with listening devices.
A relative described the woman’s life as being completely controlled by the brothers for months while they schemed to take their father’s life insurance. –Daily Caller
After their father died, the Awans carted their stepmother to Pakistan to collect her inheritance – which they promptly extorted from her.
Ran shady car dealership
In addition to nosing around highly sensitive data in Congress, the Awans ran a shady car dealership that wasn’t paying it’s bills. After one of their vendors threatened to sue them, Rep. Theodore Deutch started paying the guy.
Can you imagine if congress put the same resources into investigating the shady Awans? Between smashed equipment, imprisoning their mother and extorting her for their father’s inheritance, fleeing the country, and a shady car dealership which has it’s debts paid by Rep. Theo Deutch (D-FL), it appears to be quite the somethingburger.
Crowdfunding site Patreon banned conservative Canadian journalist, author, and YouTube sensation Lauren Southern without notice late last week – denying her thousands of dollars of monthly income following her involvement with an activist group in the Mediterranean.
In a letter to Southern, the San Francisco tech startup with ties to the Kushner family wrote “It appears that you are currently raising funds in order to take part in activities that are likely to cause loss of life. We have therefore decided to remove your page from Patreon.”
“They claimed I’m raising money that will get people killed,” Southern told the Daily Caller – adding that Patreon refuses to consider an appeal..
With over 300,000 subscribers to her youtube channel and just as many Twitter followers, Southern has amassed quite a fan base – and it’s easy to see why. The entertaining Canadian gained notoriety throughout the 2016 U.S. election and beyond as a vocal Trump supporter – appearing at rallies, protests, and even the White House press room.
And while overseas protesting and documenting hoards of migrants flowing into Europe, Southern shot footage at a French train station overflowing with new arrivals.
In May, 2017 Southern teamed up with activist group “Generation Identity” (Génération Identitaire) – part of the Identitarian “Defend Europe” movement, which “advocates the preservation of national identity and a return to ‘traditional western values.” Founded in 2012, DE has been actively resisting the Islamization of Europe with protests and attempts to physically block migrant entry – while raising money and awareness to help native citizens in need.
Génération Identitaire also organizes, every winter, solidarity tours with Europeans homeless, giving food, clothes and humanity to those whom are abandoned by the State for the benefit of migrants. –GI
Southern was briefly detained by the Italian Coast Guard in May when she joined up with Generation Identity and attempted to block German migrant ferry Aquarius.
“If the politicians won’t stop the boats, then we’ll stop the boats!” –Lauren Southern
More recently, Defend Europe raised €100,000 through crowdfunding and chartered a 130 foot ship called the C-Star to intercept, disrupt, and send back to Africa the systematic influx of refugees from North Africa into Italy on a massive scale – a phenomenon reported on by ZeroHedge last year.
Southern’s activism in the Mediterranean with a crowdfunded group is thought to be a major factor in Patreon’s decision to ban her from the platform.
Meanwhile, Patreon has no problem letting actually violent Antifa continue to raise money on their platform…
In a case closely monitored by investigative organization Far Left Watch, an Antifa anarchist group known as “It’s Going Down” has been actively raising thousands of dollars through Patreon – despite numerous reports of TOS violations for advocating and taking credit for all sorts of criminal behavior – including snipping fiber optic lines, slashing tires, cutting fuel lines, and pouring concrete on train tracks. In other words, “activities that are likely to cause loss of life.”
It’s Going Downis a self described “digital community center from anarchist, anti-fascist, autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements. Our mission is to provide a resilient platform to publicize and promote revolutionary theory and action.”
So a radical Antifa group can raise money on Patreon, right now, and Lauren Southern can’t because she’s a conservative whose activities “are likely to cause loss of life.”
Someone Call Kushner!
Founded in 2013, Patreon has raised $47.1 million of investment capital – $30 million of which was led by venture firm Thrive Capital, co-owned and managed by Joshua Kushner – brother of President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner. Of note, Joshua and Jared co-founded real estate firm Cadre – which got of the ground with a $250 million line of credit from George Soros).
Perhaps Josh Kushner can make a call to his buddies at Patreon and ask why they’ve beheaded Lauren Southern’s income while allowing Antifa anarchist groups to raise thousands of dollars per month from their fellow comrades for their jihad against conservatism.
To say San Francisco based Patreon leans left is an understatement. From a rainbow of hair colors, to hipster everything, to an employee who simply goes by the name ‘Bacon,’ it’s safe to say that Patreon probably doesn’t have a lot of Trump supporters in the office.
And big surprise – a Patreon engineer loves Antifa…
I wonder how many of Aaron’s co-workers, up to and including management, share his views?
Cutting off conservative sources of funding
Over the last year, several conservative pundits and news outlets have experienced sharp dropoffs in ad revenues – such as YouTube personality Mark Dice, who has been getting messed with off and on. Is his Patreon account next?
And in February, liberal ad agency AdRoll canceled their contract with conservative news outlet Infowars – one day after host and founder Alex Jones was featured in a New York Times article, costing Infowars an estimated $5 million in advertising revenue. Two months later, Google instructed it’s employees to rank Infowars as ‘untrustworthy.’
In examining how the staffers working as website “raters” should evaluate a “rather poor site,” the contractor pointed to InfoWars, advising raters to consider the quality of the information and its reputation. –Business Insider
And finally, Infowars host and YouTube star Paul Joseph Watson noted a sharp dropoff in ad revenue right around the same time – along with other conservative content creators.
This is my YouTube ad revenue since the crackdown. I don't get any of it anyway, but illustrates how independent voices will be strangled. pic.twitter.com/GgNwx1Hl0T
As liberal gatekeepers from ad serving companies and crowdfunding platforms deny revenue to conservative content creators, one wonders when conservative competitors to companies like Patreon will crop up to fill the vacuum created by the moralizing left.

Mr. Trump offered Mr. Scaramucci the job at 10 a.m. The president requested that Mr. Spicer stay on, but Mr. Spicer told Mr. Trump that he believed the appointment was a major mistake, according to a person with direct knowledge of the exchange.
Spicer has had a reduced role in the communications office in recent weeks, as deputy WH Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has taken over most press briefings.
Sean Spicer just RESIGNED — YES, YES, YES – now #FirePriebus – Move WH Press off campus, give @infowars permanent credentials, get CNN out.
President Trump reshuffled his legal team on Thursday, kicking his personal attorney of 17 years, Marc Kasowitz, to the curb. While CNN initially reported it as a departure from the Russia investigation, CBS News’ Major Garrett reports that Kasowitz is ‘no longer Mr. Trump’s personal attorney,’ and that Kasowitz’s spokesman Mark Corallo has handed in his resignation.
Trump’s legal team now consists of Jay Sekulow, John Dowd and recent hire Ty Cobb – who are preparing a defense to reign in FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s out-of-control probe into the Trump team’s alleged ties to Russia. The left is going mad, suggesting Trump is planning on all manner of legal chicanery – up to and including pardoning himself.
With the Russia investigation continuing to widen, Trump’s lawyers are working to corral the probe and question the propriety of the special counsel’s work. They are actively compiling a list of Mueller’s alleged potential conflicts of interest, which they say could serve as a way to stymie his work, according to several of Trump’s legal advisers.
Also of note, Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner’s Democrat operative attorney Jamie Gorelick has backed off the Russia probe as well, having been replaced by veteran criminal defense attorney Abbe Lowell.
‘Watch your back, bitch’
While the reasons for Trump’s sudden legal shakeup have not been disclosed, Kasowitz recently made headlines last Thursday after sending threatening emails to a retired public relations professional after the man told Kasowitz he should ‘Resign now.’
Kasowitz responded, writing: ‘Fuck You‘
15 minutes later, Kasowitz followed up with a second email which read ‘And you don’t know me, but I will know you. How dare you send me an email like that. I’m on you now. You’ are fucking with me now. Let’s see who you are. Watch your back, bitch.‘
After the retiree wrote back ‘thank you,’ Kasowitz responded, saying ‘You are such a piece of shit. Call me. Don’t be afraid you piece of shit,’ before sending another email to the man which stated ‘I’m Jewish… I presume you are too. Stop being afraid. Call me. Or give me your number and I will call you I already know where you live, I’m on you. You might as well call me. You will see me. I promise. Bro.”
One week later, the retired PR executive got his wish.
Hilarity ensued after Vox’s Jeff Stein tweeted a partial version of the DNC’s new slogan – which, according to Stein was the result of “months of polling and internal deliberations among the House Democratic Caucus.”
In a now-deleted tweet, Stein revealed that a member of Congress told him the DNC’s 2018 slogan set for release on Monday is “Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages,” which many noted is very close to pizza chain Papa John’s “Better ingredients, better pizza.”
After the tweets mocking the slogan began to crop up, Stein issued a corrected, longer slogan – which like a director’s cut of the Papa John’s ripoff.
I shouldve corrected this immediately; I've deleted original tweet. Full slogan is "A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages"
Britain’s Labour party has joined with a group of US 9/11 survivors in demanding UK Prime Minister Theresa May release a government report detailing the flow of money from Saudi Arabia into extremist groups in the UK. After several months of heated debate, Home Secretary Amber Reid announced that the study would not be made public “because of the volume of personal information it contains and for national security reasons.”
The report, commissioned by former Prime Minister David Cameron, has been in May’s possession since late last year – with both the Labour and Green parties repeatedly demanding it’s release.
Green party co-leader Caroline Lucas ripped into the Prime Minister – asking “will she explain if her refusal is simply because the contents of the report would embarrass the government’s friends in Saudi Arabia? Or is it because ministers care more about arms sales to Riyadh than they do about public safety?”
May shot back, “There is certain confidential information in the reports, which means that it would not be appropriate to publish it,” adding that the report could be seen by government officials on a privy basis.
In early July, Lucas questioned the delayed report, stating “To defeat terror it’s vital that politicians have full view of the facts, even if they are inconvenient for the government.”
Lucas’ comments on arms sales to Saudi Arabia reference the £5.6 billion in weapons sold between 2010 and 2016 – a period in which Hillary Clinton sent a 2014 email to John Podesta revealing Saudi “clandestine financial and logistic support to ISIL and other radical Sunni groups in the region.”
Of note, the UK’s estimated 3 million Muslims are majority Sunni, including a reported 23,000 ‘jihadist extremists’ according to a May report by the Times of London.
Pandering to Islam
May’s decision to withhold the report is viewed by some as part of wide scale government efforts to normalize and defend Islam in the UK, given the religion’s growing population which has doubled in size since 2001. Under current British rule, criticism of negative Islamic values are considered hate speech, and Muslim criminals claiming cultural ignorance are often granted extreme leniancy when compared to native citizens.
This, despite 11,000 reported cases of Islamic “honor crimes” within the UK from 2010-2014, ranging from abductions, beatings, and murders – typically to women over perceived harm she has caused her family’s reputation.
“Unfortunately they [the figures] do not show the real extent of the problem. So many crimes are unreported because the perpetrators are often the victim’s own family.
“We need a national strategy for all agencies – including police forces, courts, and schools – to be trained and to work together to end this problem.” –Diana Nammi, Director Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organization
If the report Theresa May is withholding reveals that that Saudi Arabia has been providing “clandestine and logistic support” to Islamic extremist groups operating within the UK, the implications will be far reaching – especially when one ponders the Arab nation’s recently acquired seat on the UN Human Rights Council, or their March commitment to help eradicate ISIS alongside Israel and the United States.
President Trump made an astonishing statement to the New York Times on Wednesday, telling the paper that if he had known Attorney General Jeff Sessions was going to recuse himself from overseeing the Russia investigation, he would have picked someone else to head the Department of Justice.
In a remarkable public break with one of his earliest political supporters, Mr. Trump complained that Mr. Sessions’s decision ultimately led to the appointment of a special counsel that should not have happened. “Sessions should have never recused himself and if he was going to recuse himself he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Mr. Trump said.
Trump went on to throw former FBI Director James Comey under the bus, accusing him of trying to leverage the 35 page Trump-Russia dossier to keep his job. Furthermore, Trump hated on acting FBI director Andrew McCabe – pointing out that his wife Jill received nearly $500,000 in 2015 from a PAC affiliated with Gov. Terry McAuliffe – a close Clinton ally.
Mulling over Mueller
Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t escape the President’s ire either – with Trump noting that several of the lawyers hired to investigate the Russia case contributed money to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Trump described interviewing Mueller to replace Comey, and hinted that there were non-public conflicts of interest to be revealed down the road.
“He was up here and he wanted the job,” Mr. Trump said. After he was named special counsel, “I said, ‘What the hell is this all about?’ Talk about conflicts. But he was interviewing for the job. There were many other conflicts that I haven’t said, but I will at some point.” –President Trump
When asked if Mueller’s investigation would cross a red line if it expands to the Trump family finances outside of Russia, the President said, “I would say yes… I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia.”
Former Baltimore federal prosecutor and current Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein has stepped into the spotlight since Jeff Sessions recusal over Russia. Trump complained that Rosenstein was effectively playing both sides when it came to fired FBI Director Comey – as the Deputy AG both recommended firing Comey, and then appointed Robert Mueller – which Trump states was a clinflict of interest. “Well, that’s a conflict of interest,” Mr. Trump said. “Do you know how many conflicts of interests there are?”
Trump advisor Roger Stone has been dissing Sessions too…
Veteran Republican strategist Roger Stone has been publicly critical of Attorney General Jeff Sessions in recent weeks, over Sessions’ hard-line stance on the Bundy Ranch standoff retrial – which began on Monday. Stone has taken up the defense of the Bundy family and co-defendants.
What makes Stone’s support of the Bundy family even more notable is the fact that the defendants in the 2014 standoff are now pitted against the very administration Stone helped into the White House. Attorney General Jeff Sessions drew criticism from the former Trump advisor when he said that “leadership requires, a lot of times, our people to step up and be accountable.” After claiming he would remain impartial, Sessions proceeded to compliment the U.S. attorney prosecuting the Bundy Ranch case – calling him a “top guy leading the battle, going to court, standing up and defending the office and the principles of the law.”
Stone is also an advocate for the legalization of medical marijuana, which Jeff Sessions is vehemently against.
So – both Trump and long time advisor Roger Stone aren’t happy with Sessions for different reasons, and it appears that Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein might want to start sending out resumes. One wonders how long it will be before Trump casts a lightning bolt in their direction and cleans house…
Jared Kushner attorney Jamie Gorelick announced late last week that she will be disengaging from all things Russia when it comes to the President’s son-in-law and advisor, and will instead focus on ‘wrapping up’ she said she was originally hired to do – a move which makes sense in light of Kushner’s announcement today that he will testify in front of congress next Monday. In Gorelick’s place, veteran criminal defense attorney Abbe Lowell will be handling responsibilities related to the Russia investigation.
The legal shakeup follows revelations that Kushner attended a now infamous meeting between an anti-Trump Russian lawyer, Donald Trump Jr., and at least five other people – including an associate of Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm responsible for the salacious and largely debunked 35 page Trump-Russia dossier used as the basis of a FISA surveillance warrant on a Trump associate.
“Specifically, we have learned that the person who sought the meeting is associated with Fusion GPS, a firm which according to public reports, was retained by Democratic operatives to develop opposition research on the President and which commissioned the phony Steele dossier.” -Mark Corallo
According to Axios, the President’s legal team led by Marc Kasowitz wants to ‘wall off” Kushner from discussing the Russia investigation his father-in-law.
Kushner has also come under recent fire for failing to include over 100 foreign contacts on a required federal disclosure form, after a member of his staff reportedly hit ‘send’ too early.
Kushner’s lawyers have claimed that Kushner’s initial filing of his SF-86 form did not mention any meetings with foreign officials whatsoever because an unnamed “member of his staff had prematurely hit the ‘send’ button for the [form] before it was completed.” –Breitbart
Considering the timing of Gorelick’s decision to pull back from Kushner’s Russia defense, perhaps the former Clinton Deputy AG smells smoke and doesn’t want to wait around for the fire.
On Wednesday, ABC reported that Kushner has agreed to appear before the Senate Intelligence Committee for testimony on Russian election meddling. Kushner’s new Russia attorney, Abbe Lowell, confirmed the meeting with ABC.
As Mr. Kushner has been saying since March, he has been and is prepared to voluntarily cooperate and provide whatever information he has on the investigations to Congress,” Lowell said. “Working with and being responsive to the schedules of the committees, we have arranged Mr. Kushner’s interview with the senate for July 24. He will continue to cooperate and appreciates the opportunity to assist in putting this matter to rest.” –ABC
Deep State of Affairs – Why is Gorelick Representing Kushner Anyway?
Jamie Gorelickhas been a high level Democrat operative for decades. After serving as deputy Attorney General under Bill Clinton, Gorelick – with no experience in finance – was appointed Vice Chairman at Fannie Mae from 1997 – 2003, where after just four years she received $26.5 million in compensation during a period in which the lender came under fire for a $10 billion accounting scandal and an executive bonus scandal which netted Gorelick $779,625 in ill gotten gains.
The D.C. insider has also made millions sitting on the boards of United Technologies and Amazon.com – which President Trump criticized in June for “not paying internet taxes.”
The #AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS!
It should be noted that Amazon founder and co-board member Jeff Bezos also owns the deep-state leak factory known as the Washington Post – which Gorelick has contributed to for over a decade…
Gorelick’s Infamous Memo and 9/11
Gorelick raised eyebrows when she was appointed to the 9/11 commission, despite writing a 1995 DOJ memo which crippled national counterterrorism efforts – such as complaints the FBI received of Arab nationals taking flying lessons.
…the FBI was operating under the constraints of the 1995 policy cited by Freeh.
Ashcroft said he had declassified the memo that laid out the policy so the commission could review it, noting that its author was a member of the panel, a reference to Jamie Gorelick, who was deputy attorney general in the Clinton administration. –NBC News
According to a 2004 Washington Times report, Gorelick rejected advice from a U.S. attorney not to limit investigative powers between agencies fighting terrorism:
Justice Department memos show that September 11 panel commissioner Jamie S. Gorelick was more intimately involved than previously thought with hampering communications between U.S. intelligence and law-enforcement agencies fighting terrorism.
As the No. 2 person in the Clinton Justice Department, Ms. Gorelick rejected advice from the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, who warned against placing more limits on communications between law-enforcement officials and prosecutors pursuing counterterrorism cases, according to several internal documents written in summer 1995.
Defense of Hillary Clinton during 2016 election
When James Comey reopened his investigation into Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election, the Jeff Bezos-connected Amazon board member co-wrote an op-ed in the Washington Postentitled “James Comey is damaging our democracy, in which Gorelick argued the FBI investigation was “antithetical to the interests of justice,” and was “putting a thumb on the scale of this election and damaging our democracy.”
Gorelick was reportedly considered for Attorney General under a Hillary Clinton Presidency, and was also mentioned for the job during John Kerry’s 2004 run at the White House.
Out of the spotlight, still on stage
While Democrat operative Jamie Gorelick won’t be representing Jared Kushner in the Russia investigation any longer, the former deputy Attorney General, Fannie Mae executive, Amazon board member, and self-described Hillary Clinton supporter who visited the Obama White House at least 26 times since 2009* will remain the legal council to one of Donald Trump’s closest advisors.
One wonders why, given her history as a Democrat operative, Gorelick is allowed within 100 feet of the Trump administration – and whether she’s perhaps pulling out of the Russia investigation due to long-standing relationships with high level government officials involved in the ongoing Trump-Russia conspiracy.
A battle has erupted between CNN’s Jake Tapper and left-wing Muslim activist Linda Sarsour, after Tapper called out the Women’s March group co-chaired by Sarsour after tweeting their support for convicted cop-killing domestic terrorist Assata Shakur, who has been ducking American justice in Cuba since 1984.
Shakur – aunt of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur, is a member of the far-left Black Liberation Army (BLA) and was convicted of the 1977 murder of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foster during a shootout on the NJ Turnpike. Shakur escaped prison in 1979, and after five years on the run fled to Cuba where she currently lives under political asylum.
In light of Women’s March tweet in support of Shakur, Tapper responded:
