Company Owned by Trump’s Son-In-Law Faces Federal Grand Jury Subpoena

New York: Federal prosecutors approved subpoenas to Kushner Companies based on a report by AP that found the real estate company repeatedly filed forms with the New York City Department of Buildings claiming they owned no rent-controlled apartment units while actually possessing hundreds of such units. The false filings allowed Kushner Companies to raise rents and, in turn, sell those buildings at a great profit two years later.

Real estate empire the Kushner Companies has been served with a grand jury subpoena relating to paperwork practices dating to the period when White House Senior Advisor and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner served as CEO.

An Associated Press (AP) investigation last month revealed that the Kushner Companies repeatedly filed forms with the New York City Department of Buildings claiming they owned no rent-controlled units while actually possessing hundreds of such units in Queens, New York apartment buildings they purchased in 2015.

Those filings reportedly allowed the Kushner Companies to raise rents and, in turn, sell those buildings at a great profit two years later, at which point Jared was no longer at the company’s helm, but serving in the Trump administration alongside his wife, Ivanka Trump.

On Thursday, a grand jury serving under the auspices of federal prosecutors from the Brooklyn-based U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York approved subpoenas based on that AP report, demanding documentation as to how the allegedly false forms were prepared and by whom.

The subpoena was first reported in the Wall Street Journal Friday. “Kushner Companies has nothing to hide and is cooperating fully with all legitimate requests for information, including this subpoena,” a Kushner spokeswoman told the Journal.

“We believe that this subpoena, which has already been complied with, was issued based solely on an article that appeared in the press the day before it was issued,” the spokeswoman continued in reference to the AP investigation.

In response to the original AP reporting, the Kushner Companies denied all wrongdoing. “[I]f mistakes or violations are identified, corrective action is taken immediately,” they said in a statement, claiming the allegedly false filings were prepared by a third party.

Pay Dirt: Obama’s DOJ Had No Evidence to Justify Opening Russia Investigation

Representative Devin Nunes (R-CA) said that Congress finally received the ‘electronic communication’, which is the original reason why counterintelligence spied on the Trump campaign alleging they colluded with Russia, but no official intelligence was used to open the investigation, which indicates the investigation was illegal.  Congress is investigating the US State Department because its info was leaked to the FBI. Nunes said that four of Comey’s memos were classified and he laundered them through a friend who leaked them to the New York Times in order to open a special counsel investigation.

 

During the discussion Nunes, who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, told Maria the DOJ had was NO EVIDENCE of wrongdoing when they started to spy on the Donald Trump campaign.
It was all for political reasons — which is immoral, unethical and illegal.

Rep. Nunes: This is really important to us because the intelligence investigation uses the tools of our intelligence services that are not supposed to be used on American citizens. So, we’ve long wanted to know what intelligence did you have that actually led to this investigation. So what we found now after the investigators have reviewed it is in fact there was no intelligence. So we have a traditional partnership with what’s called the Five Eyes Agreement…

Maria Bartiromo: Mr. Chairman you’ve got to explain what you just said. I think this is extraordinary. That you’re telling us that in order for the FBI, the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into so-called collusion between President Trump and the Russians there was no official intelligence used. Then how did this investigation start?

Rep. Nunes: I think that is the point. We don’t understand and never understood.

This is pay dirt folks.
The Obama DOJ NEVER had any intelligence that Trump was working with the Russians.
They started spying on him and his campaign and family anyway.
It was all politics.

WikiLeaks Says It Will Have “Amazing Fun” in Countering DNC Lawsuit

The Democratic National Committee filed a lawsuit alleging the Trump campaign, the Russian government, and WikiLeaks conspired to interfere in the 2016 presidential campaign to tip the election in favor of Donald Trump.  The purpose of the lawsuit is to motivate donors and voters on the far left.  WikiLeaks has vowed to counter-sue and is delighted at the prospect of opening discovery on the DNC while Trump expressed interest in getting hold of the DNC servers that the FBI was never allowed to inspect.

WikiLeaks has hit back against a multimillion-dollar lawsuit filed by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), announcing over Twitter that they are seeking donations for a counter-suit, noting “We’ve never lost a publishing case and discovery is going to be amazing fun,” along with a link which people can use to donate to the organization.

Discovery is a pre-trial process by which one party can obtain evidence from the opposing party relevant to the case. The Trump campaign, which is also named in the DNC filing, says the lawsuit will provide an opportunity to “explore the DNC’s now-secret records.”

Hours after the Washington Post broke the news of the lawsuit, President Trump tweeted “Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can be good news in that we will now counter for the DNC server that they refused to give to the FBI,” referring to the DNC email breach. Trump also mentioned “the Debbie Wasserman Schultz Servers and Documents held by the Pakistani mystery man and Clinton Emails.”

In a statement which goes into the various items they’ll be pursuing in court, the Trump campaign said the following:

While this lawsuit is frivolous and will be dismissed, if the case goes forward, the DNC has created an opportunity for us to take aggressive discovery into their claims of ‘damages’ and uncover their acts of corruption for the American people,” 

If this lawsuit proceeds, the Trump Campaign will be prepared to leverage the discovery process and explore the DNC’s now-secret records about the actual corruption they perpetrated to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Everything will be on the table, including:

How the DNC contributed to the fake dossier, using Fusion GPS along with the Clinton Campaign as the basis for the launch of a phony investigation.

Why the FBI was never allowed access to the DNC servers in the course of their investigation into the Clinton e-mail scandal.

• How the DNC conspired to hand Hillary Clinton the nomination over Bernie Sanders.

• How officials at the highest levels of the DNC colluded with the news media to influence the outcome of the DNC nomination.

• Management decisions by Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Donna Brazile, Tom Perez, and John Podesta; their e-mails, personnel decisions, budgets, opposition research, and more.

What’s interesting is that of all the sources the DNC cites in their massive lawsuit – the Steele dossier they paid for isn’t one of them.

The DNC suit has drawn criticism from prominent Democrats who would like to restore dignity to the party – such as Claire McCaskill (MO), Jackie Speier (CA) and former Obama White House adviser and CNN commentator David Axelrod – who suggested in a Friday tweet that the “ill-timed” combination of “Comey’s flamboyant roll out” and the DNC lawsuit are playing into President Trump’s strategy of portraying the investigation against him as a “partisan vendetta.”

Washington State Fusion Center Accidentally Sends Journalist Documents on Mind Control

The Washington State Fusion Center accidentally sent documents containing information about psycho-electronic weapons to a journalist   who had made a FOIA request while researching Antifa and white nationalist groups.  The zip file revealed information on electromagnetic weapons, remote mind control and forced memory blanking.  The document confirms that the devices have been tested on people.  It is clear that world governments are actively developing new classes of weaponry that the public have been led to believe are the stuff of fantasy, thus making it easy to pass off anyone discussing “psycho-electronic” as a wild conspiracy theorist.

Washington, D.C. – A Department of Homeland Security multi-agency counterterrorism center, the Washington State Fusion Center, released some documents this week that exposed research into a secretive class of devices called electromagnetic weapons, which have the potential to be used for “remote mind control.”

A reporter for Muckrock researching Antifa and white supremacist groups received a surprise among a batch of information from the Washington State Fusion Center as part of a FOIA request, as one file within the materials he received was curiously labeled “EM effects on the human body.zip”—a reference to electromagnetic forces on the human body.

Upon closer inspection, the journalist realized the documents contained in the file from the DHS Fusion Center discussed “remote mind control” and “forced memory blanking,” as well as other types of “psycho-electronic” weapon effects. The documents also discussed “microwave hearing,” and “remote brain mapping,” which would let third parties monitor your thoughts.

It is important to note that the existence of these records—which were not created by the fusion center and are not government documents—is not evidence that the U.S. government possesses these devices, but clearly indicates that at a minimum, these types of weapons are being studied. It should also be noted that while these particular records may not be evidence of the existence of psycho-electronic weapons, there is a plethora of collateral documentation that supports their existence and use.

 

MuckRock reports that aside from being in the possession of the fusion center, the documents are clearly not government material, with one slide seemingly coming from a person named “Supratik Saha,” who is identified as a software engineer. The slide referencing brain mapping has no sourcing, while a diagram of a body being assaulted by psychotronic weapons is sourced from “raven1.net,” which is no longer operational.

While the documents themselves may not be direct evidence of the existence of “psycho-electronic” weapons, there is plenty of supporting documentation regarding the existence and development of such weapons globally.

Europe’s Largest Bank to Stop Funding Coal Plants and Arctic Drilling

Europe’s largest bank, HSBC, announced it would no longer finance coal power plants, oil sands projects in Canada and offshore drilling in the Arctic, in order to comply with the Paris Treaty. Other banks that have also refused to invest in coal and oil companies include ING, BNP Paribas and BBVA, due to pressure from environmentalists, who are backed by globalists interested in limiting access to energy.

Europe’s largest bank, HSBC, announced Friday it would no longer back coal power plants in most countries or finance oil sands projects in Canada and offshore drilling in the Arctic, Financial Times reported.

The policy mirrors those of several other large banks such as ING, BNP Paribas and BBVA, reflecting a growing push by environmentalists for financial institutions to change their lending practices to address climate change.

“We recognize the need to reduce emissions rapidly to achieve the target set in the 2015 Paris Agreement to limit global temperature rises to well below 2 degrees Celsius and our responsibility to support the communities in which we operate,” HSCB global head of strategy and sustainable finance Daniel Klier said, according to Axios.

Leftist Anti-Gun Professor Charged with Spraying Fake Blood on Home of NRA Lobbyist

Virginia: Anti-gun leftists ramp up the pressure, weaponizing intimidation and shame, by confronting their targets at their homes. Chris Cox, a lobbyist for the NRA, said that the extremists sprayed fake blood on his home, protest his home with a poster of a dead child, created a website mimicking his wife’s business, and distributed flyers outside of his wife’s interior design business.  The leftist academia is behind much of the heightened protests and criminal activity, including University of Nebraska-Lincoln professor Patricia Hill, who was arrested and charged with misdemeanor property destruction for allegedly spraying the fake blood on the Cox’s home on two occasions.

A lobbyist for the National Rifle Association (NRA) says anti-gun protesters have targeted his home at least twice, including spraying his house in Virginia with fake blood and protesting at his wife’s business.

Chris Cox, an NRA lobbyist who lives in Alexandria, just outside of Washington, D.C., claims that left-wing protesters have stood outside his wife’s interior design business to hand out flyers, created an anti-Cox website and created posters with photos of child victims of gun violence to hold outside his home.

An attorney for the family told The Washington Post in a statement that the protestors’ tactics have “crossed the line.”

“Mr. and Mrs. Cox have been targeted over the past few months by repeated acts of criminal and unlawful conduct, including having their home vandalized on two occasions,” attorney Elizabeth Locke said. “These coordinated tactics have crossed the line of civility and human decency.”

Patricia Hill, a professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, was arrested after allegedly spraying the blood on the Coxs’ home in January and charged with misdemeanor property destruction. She also allegedly sprayed the substance last October.

Amanda Gailey, also a UNL professor, and Catherine Koebel, a biologist, are co-founders of activist group The Great American Gun Melt. They have kept their protests to holding signs and handing out flyers, and told the Post that police confirmed their protest was legal.

Koebel claims that Cox’s wife, Courtney Cox, knocked Koebel’s phone out of her hand during a brief confrontation outside Cox’s interior design business, and scratched her, prompting Koebel to file a police complaint.

Cox strongly denies Koebel’s description of their interaction, her attorney told The Hill.

Gailey and Koebel said their aim is to introduce a more radical, further-left approach to gun control activism, and to shame Cox in his own home, rather than at NRA headquarters, where he could easily ignore it, according to The Washington Post.
