Sixteen FBI Agents Raided the Home of a Whistleblower Against the FBI in the Clinton Foundation Uranium One Scandal
Sixteen FBI agents raided the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, a whistleblower who worked for an FBI contractor and came across Clinton Foundation and Uranium One documents that he gave to Inspector General Horowitz and both the House and Senate Intel Committees. Cain is a protected whistleblower under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection, but the FBI wanted to know what information was contained in the documents, and raided his house anyway. The documents reveal federal officials, including then-FBI Director Robert Mueller, failed to investigate criminal misconduct by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatam, the Russian nuclear firm that purchased 20% of the US’s Uranium. Nine shareholders in Uranium One gave more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval of the Uranium One deal. Stephanie Gallagher, a federal magistrate, first nominated by Barack Obama, approved of the FBI raid of Cain’s home despite his designation as a protected whistleblower.
The FBI raided the home of a whistleblower who was in possession of documents regarding the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, according to the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras.
The whistleblower, Dennis Nathan Cain, had turned the documents over to the Department of Justice’s inspector general and both the House and Senate Intelligence committees, according to the lawyer.
The FBI rummaged through Cain’s home for six hours, even after the whistleblower handed over the documents, according to Socarras.
FBI agents raided the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower who privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney.
The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges.
The delivered documents also show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One, the document reviewed by TheDCNF alleges. Mueller is now the special counsel investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
“The bureau raided my client to seize what he legally gave Congress about the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One,” the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras, told TheDCNF, noting that he considered the FBI’s raid to be an “outrageous disregard” of whistleblower protections.

Sixteen agents arrived at the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, a former FBI contractor, on the morning of Nov. 19 and raided his Union Bridge, Maryland, home, Socarras told TheDCNF.
The raid was permitted by a court order signed on Nov. 15 by federal magistrate Stephanie A. Gallagher in the U.S. District Court for Baltimore and obtained by TheDCNF.
A special agent from the FBI’s Baltimore division, who led the raid, charged that Cain possessed stolen federal property and demanded entry to his private residence, Socarras told TheDCNF.
Tucker Carlson Shows the Double Standard in Enforcing Laws Against the Political Elites
Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen pleaded ‘guilty’ to the charge of lying to Congress, and admitted to lying about the dates of an aborted Moscow real estate deal when he testified in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee last year. The prosecution of Cohen shows that it is an enforceable felony to lie to the US Congress. However, the law must apply to everyone or else it becomes a political weapon. Political elites, including former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI Director James Comey, and former CIA Director John Brennan have lied to Congress and caused harm to our country, yet they have been rewarded instead of punished.
French President Macron’s New Carbon Tax on Fuel Incites Hundreds of Thousands to Join ‘Yellow Vest’ Protests
The mainstream media in the US has been downplaying the “yellow vest” protests in France that are an uprising against a 6% increase in carbon taxes as the country follows its commitment to UN climate treaties and agreements that are based in global warming lies. President Trump rejected US participation in the Paris Accord that seeks to phase-out diesel and gasoline vehicles by 2040. Higher taxes do not equate to lower carbon emissions.
Summary by JW Williams
President Macron, a global warming tax enthusiast, has raised tax on diesel fuel and gasoline, sparking protests across the country by as many as 300,000 demonstrators who are wearing yellow vests, which all drivers are required to have on hand for safety purposes. The Yellow Vests are ethnic Europeans from the working and middle class that are heavily taxed at at rate of 37%; protests have taken place in more than 2000 areas across the country, not just urban areas like Paris. The Yellow Vests are expected to shut down traffic again this weekend; over the past few weeks, cars and other materials have been set afire, and two people have died during the demonstrations.
Macron is dedicated to replacing France’s current energy sources with green renewables, which includes a plan to phase-out sales of gas and diesel cars by 2040, and to implement his ambitious model in Paris by 2030. Macron is seen as the “president for the rich” and being out-of-touch with the people. His approval rating has plummeted to 26%. He refuses to drop the unpopular new tax. France raised its carbon tax from $35 a ton in 2017 to $51 a ton in 2018, and it will reach $98 by 2022. Even though carbon taxes have been raised, along with government spending, CO2 levels have not been reduced, according to former environmental advisor, Nicolas Hulot.
Hulot, a former television personality who served as Macron’s staggeringly popular environment minister, resigned during an August radio interview that took Macron by surprise. Hulot criticized Macron for failing to follow through on his promise to reduce reliance on nuclear energy, which provides 72% of the country’s electricity, and to shutter old nuke facilities. Hulot also criticized Macron for failing to protect the environment from pesticides and other pollutants. People often conflate harmless CO2 with pollutants.
The Yellow Vests have been characterized as fascists led by the far-right, but the participants are taxpayers from the working class and retired people living on benefits.

France’s climate change commitments trigger rising diesel prices and street protests
PARIS — The French president is under fire again, this time over rising fuel prices.
On Saturday, more than 282,700 people, many clad in yellow vests, took to — and, in many places, also literally took — the streets, according to the French Interior Ministry. The ministry said a network of drivers blocked roads at some 2,000 locations across the country, generating backups for miles and causing one death.
A 63-year-old protester was killed in the eastern Savoie region when a driver panicked by demonstrators accidentally accelerated a vehicle into the crowd, French media reported. In other incidents nationwide, 106 people were reported injured, five seriously.
The protesters’ chief complaint: the rising cost of diesel fuel. The recent price hike is a direct result of President Emmanuel Macron’s commitment to curbing climate change, which included higher carbon taxes for 2018, the first full year of his term. But beyond the diesel issue, many turned out Saturday to voice any number of other frustrations with the “president for the rich,” who is seen as increasingly removed from ordinary people’s concerns.
Diesel, a fossil fuel, is known for the pollutants it emits into the air. Although it was traditionally taxed at the same rate as gasoline, that is no longer the case: Taxes on diesel have risen 6.2 percent per liter this year, as part of the government’s efforts to protect clean air. The problem is, diesel remains the most common fuel in France, leading many to view recent policies as an attack on working people more than an environmental safeguard.
The stirrings of the “yellow vest” campaign behind Saturday’s protests began this summer, with online petitions urging Macron to reconsider. But the loudest voice was that of Jacline Mouraud, a white-haired hypnotist and grandmother of three from Brittany who has become the star of the movement.
“I have two little words for Mr. Macron and his government,” she said in a YouTube video that has garnered millions of views. “You have persecuted drivers since the day you took office. This will continue for how long?”
On Saturday, Mouraud was asked to explain the death of the protester. “I deplore the death of this woman,” she said, speaking to Europe 1 radio. “But who is responsible for this situation? The French government is responsible for the death of this woman.”
Her view of the government is not a fringe opinion. According to a poll published Friday by the Odoxa agency for France’s Le Figaro newspaper — albeit with only 1,000 respondents — as many as 3 in 4 French people agree. Whatever the actual figure, Macron’s opponents, particularly on France’s political extremes, have sought to capitalize on the sentiment, using the yellow-vest movement to cast the president as an out-of-touch elitist.
That is a common criticism of Macron, whose approval ratings have recently plummeted to as low as 26 percent. Even President Trump noted Macron’s low popularity in a flurry of tweets after a tense visit to Paris last week.
Laurent Wauquiez, the leader of France’s right-wing Les Républicains, announced he would demonstrate Saturday. “We’re offered a punitive environmental policy that involves massive increases in taxes,” Wauquiez said in an interview. “I’m tired of the fact that in this country, environmental policy always comes by way of taxes.”
In response, Macron has offered his “respect and consideration” to the protesters but has refused to budge. He is also far from alone in advocating higher carbon taxes.
The United Nations contends taxing carbon dioxide emissions is an essential component of halting a steady rise in global temperatures. It was a key element of the world body’s major October report predicting Earth’s atmosphere may warm by up to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit over preindustrial levels as soon as 2040, potentially triggering a global crisis decades earlier than expected.
