Puerto Rico Main News from mikenova (67 sites): Voice of America: Powerball juega el cuarto premio más grande en la historia de EE.UU.

Un premio mayor de $750 millones de dólares, el cuarto más grande en la historia de EE.UU. y el segundo premio de cantidad astronómica de esta semana estará en juego el sábado durante el sorteo del Powerball. El millonario juego se realiza después que un boleto de lotería vendido en Carolina del Sur acertó los seis números el martes en el sorteo de la otra lotería principal de EE.UU. conocida como Mega Millions. El afortunado ganó un premio mayor de $1.537 mil millones de dólares, apenas por debajo de un récord mundial. Hasta el momento nadie se ha presentado a reclamar el premio del Mega Millions. Si alguien gana el Powerball este sábado tendrá la opción de un pago en efectivo inmediato de $428.6 millones o un premio de $750 millones pagado en 29 años, según la lotería. El Powerball ha estado jugando sin un ganador desde la última vez que un afortunado ganador acertó los números, el pasado mes de agosto. Los billetes de la lotería Powerball se venden en 44 estados, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico y las Islas Vírgenes de EE.UU. Las probabilidades de acertar los cinco números y el Powerball son de 1 en 292 millones. Los estados reciben un porcentaje de las ventas de boleto de lotería y utilizan el dinero para apoyar a las escuelas públicas o para satisfacer otras necesidades.

Trump Draws Attention to Controversial Role of Putin-Friendly Former German Chancellor

(<a href=”http://CNSNews.com” rel=”nofollow”>CNSNews.com</a>) – In his criticism of Germany’s energy ties with Russia in Brussels on Wednesday, President Trump touched on a sensitive issue in Germany – the conduct of a former chancellor whose close ties with President Vladimir Putin, key involvement in lucrative energy deals, and support for Russian policies have long stoked controversy.

Accusing Germany of “paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia” for natural gas even as NATO is meant to be protecting European countries from Russia, Trump noted that “the former chancellor of Germany is the head of the pipeline company that’s supplying the gas.”

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s immediate predecessor, Gerhard Schroeder of the Social Democratic Party (SPD), led Germany from 1998 to 2005.

While in office, he championed and helped push ahead the politically-sensitive Nord Stream project – a pipeline along the Baltic Sea bed to supply natural gas from Russia directly to Germany, bypassing the existing pipeline running through Ukraine.

The project raised concerns in Eastern Europe – and in the United States – because Russia has a history of using its ample energy resources as a political tool. The new route would make it even easier to do so, by cutting off gas to troublesome countries like Ukraine and Poland, while continuing to sell to big customers further west.

Just weeks after stepping down after losing an election in the fall of 2005, Schroeder became chairman of the shareholders’ committee of Nord Stream AG, a consortium led by the Russian state-owned Gazprom, building the pipeline.

The announcement sparked charges of conflict of interest and unethical behavior in German political circles – and prompted the late U.S. Senator Tom Lantos to label him a “political prostitute.”

Nord Stream has been on line since 2011, and now a further pipeline, Nord Stream 2, is in the works.

Schroeder continues to chair the Nord Stream AG shareholders’ committee, and last year he was additionally nominated as a director on the board of Rosneft, Russia’s state-owned oil company and largest oil producer – and a company under U.S. and E.U. sanctions as a result of Putin’s intervention in Crimea.

Over the years Schroeder has raised eyebrows and caused some embarrassment in his home country by taking stances favorable to his friend Putin – who in 2004 he infamously called a “flawless democrat” – and generally at odds with Europe and the West.

“When it comes to energy policy, only dreamers can pursue the idea that western Europe could become independent of Russian oil and natural gas,” he said in a 2008 interview in which he also dismissed the notion that Russia poses a threat to the West.

Schroeder criticized European recognition of Kosovo after it declared independence from Russian ally Serbia in 2008, and defended Putin’s more recent actions in Ukraine, calling for an end to sanctions against Moscow.

After he compared Russian military intervention in Ukraine with NATO’s intervention in the Balkans in 1999 – to end Serb aggression against Kosovo’s ethnic Albanian majority – Merkel described her predecessor’s comments and attempts to compare Kosovo and Crimea as “shameful.”

Four years ago, just weeks after Russia annexed Crimea after a referendum not recognized by most of the international community, Schroeder celebrated his 70th birthday with Putin at a party in St. Petersburg.

After Putin’s re-election earlier this year, Russian television coverage showed Schroeder in the front row at the inauguration ceremony, alongside Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and the patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Despite the embarrassment he has caused to Germany over the years, Schroeder early this week represented Germany’s federal government at the swearing-in ceremony for the re-elected Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to the foreign office in Berlin.

European Ex-Officials Deny Being Paid by Manafort to Lobby for Ukraine

Asked if the money Mr. Gusenbauer received came from Mr. Manafort, Mr. Prodi seemed skeptical but said that he didn’t know. “Go ask Gusenbauer,” he said, adding that he thought that it was more likely that the money came from European businessmen interested in keeping Europe and Ukraine close.

In an interview on Saturday, Mr. Cox said he had worked with Mr. Kwasniewski, Mr. Schulz and others to try to convince Mr. Yanukovych to release the jailed political opponents.

Mr. Cox said that he had never heard of the Hapsburg Group, had never been paid by anyone for his efforts in Ukraine, and had had no dealings with Mr. Manafort. But in 2012, he said, he had been invited by Mr. Schultz to go to Ukraine with Mr. Kwasniewski, the first of some 25 trips, all done “pro bono,” Mr. Cox said, to try to get the detainees released.

“The view in Western capitals was that these were the victims of selective justice,” Mr. Cox said. After meetings with Mr. Yanukovych and prosecutors, Mr. Cox and Mr. Kwasniewski were successful in obtaining the release of Mr. Ivashchenko and Mr. Lutsenko, who is now Ukraine’s prosecutor-general.

“We were not successful with Yulia Tymoshenko,” who was Mr. Yanukovych’s prime political opponent at the time, Mr. Cox said. “But we did ensure that Charité hospital in Berlin would have access to her in prison and she not be subject to further trials,” he added.

Mr. Cox made clear his distaste for Mr. Yanukovych, adding: “I wouldn’t lobby for him.”

In an interview on Saturday, Mr. Kwasniewski said, “I did meet Manafort two or three times during our mission in Ukraine in 2012 and 2013, but that’s it. At the time, he was an adviser to President Yanukovych, whom I also met, and it was only natural that our paths had to cross a couple of times.”

He added: “The last time I saw Manafort was probably around the fall of 2013. He never paid us. I never had any financial relationship with him, and I never heard of the Hapsburg Group.”

Manafort associate proposed hiring German, Spanish politicians to lobby on Ukraine

An associate of Paul Manafort in 2012 proposed recruiting former politicians from Belgium, Germany and Spain for a covert lobbying effort on behalf of the Ukrainian government, according to court documents briefly made public Wednesday by special counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

The documents give new insight into the planning for and goals of a campaign Manafort orchestrated to boost the image of then-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and his political party. The lobbying effort has subsequently become part of Mueller’s legal case against President Donald Trump’s former campaign chief, who faces charges of money laundering, failing to disclose his foreign lobbying work in the U.S. and obstruction of justice, among others.

Story Continued Below

The documents, some of which had previously been released with heavy redactions, appear to have been released in full by mistake. They were available online for a short time Wednesday afternoon, before they were replaced in a public court database by edited versions in which the names of many of those involved were removed.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel’s office, declined to comment.

One 2012 memo that was briefly made public in full Wednesday was apparently written by Alan Friedman, a former journalist based in Europe who previously had been identified as “Person D1” in documents released by Mueller’s team. (POLITICO and other outlets reported last week that Friedman appeared to be one of the people involved in Manafort’s campaign.)

Friedman’s memo, addressed to Manafort, outlines a plan “to assemble a small chorus of high-level European third-party endorsers and politically credible friends” to burnish Ukraine’s image ahead of the country’s election in the fall of 2012. The group — later dubbed the “Hapsburg group” — went on to lobby members of Congress and congressional staffers in the U.S. as part of a campaign orchestrated by Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, according to prosecutors.

Manafort has said the group’s work focused on Europe, but Mueller has made public documents that he says show they also lobbied in the U.S. A spokesman for Manafort declined to comment on the new disclosures Wednesday.

Friedman proposed that the group would be led by Alfred Gusenbauer, a former Austrian chancellor with whom he said he had spoken shortly before writing the memo. He also listed other European politicians with whom he hadn’t spoken but who “represent the initial talent pool Alfred and I would canvass informally if you approve.”

The names included: Romano Prodi, a former prime minister of Italy Adolfo Urso, a former Italian trade minister; Jean-Paul Moerman, a Belgian judge; Bodo Hombach, a former German government minister and “influential publishing boss”; Javier Solana, a former NATO secretary-general from Spain and “respected man for all seasons in Europe”; Alain Minc, an old adviser to former French President Nicolas Sarkozy; Alain Juppé, a former prime minister of France; and Aleksander Kwasniewski, a former president of Poland.

“Although his appointment as European Parliament official to monitor the [former Ukraine Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko] trial would prevent Aleksander Kwasniewski from any formal activity, Chancellor Gusenbauer will meet him June 29th and probe with him the idea of him joining a more formal Advisory Panel in 2013, and in the meantime whether he might feel comfortable with some conference appearances and/or join op-ed with Chancellor Gusenbauer in the next few months,” Friedman wrote.

All of those names, including Gusenbauer’s, were redacted in documents previously released by the special counsel.

It’s not clear how many of the potential recruits identified by Friedman went on to become part of the Hapsburg group. Lobbying disclosures filed by two Washington firms retained as part of Manafort’s campaign show that Gusenbauer, Prodi and Kwasniewski came to the U.S. as part of the effort.

In the memo, Friedman proposed paying Gusenbauer 25,000 to 30,000 euros a month for his work and suggested that payments to the others they planned to recruit could be routed through Gusenbauer “so as to be quite indirect.”

Story Continued Below

“Alfred Gusenbauer is willing to be discreet,” Friedman wrote.

Prodi told The New York Times in February that Gusenbauer had paid him to work on bringing Ukraine closer to the European Union. But he said the money came as part of the “normal private relations I had with him” and didn’t come from Manafort, to the best of his knowledge.

The second unredacted document released on Wednesday confirmed that Manafort had reached out to Friedman in February through WhatsApp. Konstantin Kilimnik, a longtime Manafort associate, sent messages to Friedman and a partner, Eckart Sager, in February and again in April.

Friedman and Sager turned those messages over to Mueller, according to the document. Mueller’s prosecutors have charged that the messages constituted an effort to obstruct justice by tampering with potential witness testimony.

Judge Delays Start of Manafort Trial for Six Days
 

mikenova shared this story .

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A federal judge on Monday delayed the financial crimes trial of Paul Manafort for six days to allow Mr. Manafort’s lawyers more time to review a trove of documents that they said could be crucial to his defense.

The decision by the judge, T. S. Ellis III of the United States District Court in Alexandria, pushed the start of the trial back to next Tuesday. It is the first of two faced by Mr. Manafort, the veteran Republican lobbyist and former campaign chairman for President Trump.

Mr. Manafort has been charged with money laundering and tax evasion in a case that arose from the investigation by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, into efforts by Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Prosecutors have said they do not intend to raise the issue of collusion with Russia during the trial, and Judge Ellis warned lawyers on Monday not to stray into areas that could prejudice the jurors. He advised the defense not to attack the prosecutors’ motives, despite the fact that Judge Ellis has previously said in court that he believes Mr. Mueller is pursuing a case against Mr. Manafort as a way of pressuring him to help build a case against Mr. Trump.

“Even though I have said what I think the motive was, that doesn’t mean that it is admissible at trial,” the judge said. He also warned the lawyers to steer clear of the political sympathies of jurors, saying prospective members of the panel will not be queried about whether they voted for Mr. Trump.

“I am not going to allow this trial to drag on or encompass a bunch of irrelevant stuff” that does not bear on whether Mr. Manafort is guilty or innocent, he said. “I’m not in the theater business. You have to be better-looking for that.”

Judge Ellis granted the six-day delay after Mr. Manafort’s lawyers told him that prosecutors had turned over to them tens of thousands of documents three weeks ago from Mr. Manafort’s accountants and his business partner, Rick Gates.

Mr. Manafort, whose bail was revoked in a related trial, was in the courtroom for the proceedings on Monday, wearing a dark green jail jumpsuit.

Mr. Manafort, who worked for Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign for about five months in 2016 — including three months as his campaign chairman — is accused of failing to pay taxes on $30 million in income from Ukraine, where he had been hired to bolster a pro-Russia leader. He is also charged with laundering those funds through real estate and other means and engaging in bank fraud once the spigot of money dried up in 2014.

Judge Ellis warned the prosecutors away from mentioning Russia, citing “the amount of publicity and the antipathy toward Russians.” Greg D. Andres, the lead prosecutor, assured the judge that no government witness was expected to refer to Russia on the stand.

Mr. Andres pushed for — and appeared to at least preliminarily receive — permission to present evidence of who in Ukraine paid Mr. Manafort, including Ukrainian oligarchs who he said funneled payments to Mr. Manafort through an account in Cyprus that they controlled.

Mr. Andres said the prosecution intended to show Mr. Manafort’s “constant interaction” with the oligarchs and with Viktor F. Yanukovych, his principal benefactor. Mr. Yanukovych, an ally of President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, was elected Ukraine’s president in 2010 but fled to Russia in 2014 after a popular uprising.

Both Mr. Manafort and Mr. Gates worked for years to bolster Mr. Yanukovych and the pro-Russia parties in Ukraine. Mr. Gates, who served as Mr. Trump’s deputy campaign chairman, has pleaded guilty to related charges and is expected to testify against Mr. Manafort.

Mr. Andres also said that he planned to bring up Mr. Manafort’s work for the Trump campaign, albeit in a limited context. One bank chairman approved a loan to Mr. Manafort, he said, knowing that documents he had provided were false, because he was promised and eventually given a position on the Trump campaign. The same bank official hoped for but failed to get a job in the Trump administration, he said.

The judge also unveiled the identities of five witnesses whom he has ordered to testify under limited grants of immunity sought by the prosecution.

Russia & Germany’s Gerhard Schroeder: Putin’s Chief European Lobbyist
 

mikenova shared this story from National Review.

Making the click-through worthwhile: Why those concerned about Russia should be paying a lot more attention to former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder; the Eastern European NATO members’ baffling and self-destructive decision to skimp on defense spending; why Judge Kavanaugh’s clerks loved him; and the United States approaches a new threshold of energy power.

Why Is Germany’s Former Chancellor Now Putin’s Chief Lobbyist in Europe?

A lot of folks in the United States will scream furiously about this statement from President Trump at the NATO Summit:

“I have to say, I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia where we’re supposed to be guarding against Russia,” Trump said at a breakfast with NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg. “We’re supposed to protect you against Russia but they’re paying billions of dollars to Russia and I think that’s very inappropriate . . . Germany, as far as I’m concerned, is captive to Russia.”

As usual, Trump is down the street and around the corner from a legitimate point. Well, perhaps he’s a bit closer this time. If you think Trump’s past business connections to Russian figures are troubling, you probably ought to be livid about how former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s has decided to become the chief lobbyist for Vladimir Putin in Europe.

One of Schroeder’s last acts in office in 2005 was authorizing “Nord Stream,” a pipeline bypassing key territories and controlled by Russia’s Gazprom energy company. Shortly after leaving office, Vladimir Putin arranged for Schroeder to chair the project, and then he started pushing for a second pipeline, Nord Stream 2. Instead of diversifying Europe’s energy supply, Schroeder’s pushed policies that make the continent more dependent upon Russia, not less. In September 2017, Putin arranged for Schroeder to become chairman of Rosneft, the state-owned Russian oil giant.

The Wall Street Journal’s Holman Jenkins wrote earlier this year that Schroeder is exactly the kind of wealthy, well-connected, influential figure acting on behalf of Russia that U.S. sanctions are supposed to target:

Germany’s allies and its European Union partners, including the quietly frantic Poles and Balts, can’t quite refer to Mr. Schroeder as a Putin agent nestled in the heart of Germany’s political and business elite. His name doesn’t appear on any U.S. government list. Section 241 of last summer’s sanctions law required the U.S. Treasury to identify the ‘most significant senior foreign political figures and oligarchs’ behind the Putin regime. These descriptors would seem to apply to Mr. Schroeder but it remains diplomatically impermissible to say so.

Lately, Schroeder has been hanging out with Putin at the World Cup. How is it, in an era when U.S. politics is suddenly deeply concerned — some would say paranoid — about Russian influence, that Schroeder’s cheerful embrace of lobbying for Russia has barely made a ripple on this side of the pond? The cynical answer is that most of those screaming the loudest about Russia today don’t think of Putin as sinister because of his lack of criticism of Trump; they think of Trump as sinister because of his lack of criticism of Putin. Indeed, Russia shot down a passenger airliner over Ukraine in 2014, and it was out of the news within a week.

But their cynicism doesn’t change the fact that Russia is generally hostile to American policies under presidents of either party, and Vladimir Putin would love to see the NATO alliance collapse. Their military actions in Georgia and Crimea demonstrate that when the Russians think they can get away with naked aggression, they’ll try it.

In that light, the reluctance of some NATO members to honor their agreements and spend the required 2 percent of GDP on military spending is baffling. In 2017, just four member states hit that 2 percent threshold — the United States (3.57 percent), Greece (2.36 percent), the United Kingdom (2.12 percent), and Estonia (2.08 percent), and we’ll give Poland the benefit of the doubt because it hit 1.99 percent.

Tiny Luxembourg ranked last, spending less than one-half of 1 percent on their military. Perhaps Luxembourg’s leaders figure that because they’re nestled between France, Germany, and Belgium, they can count on their neighbors to slow down any invading Russians.

But the NATO members in Eastern Europe have no excuse.

Look, Hungary, you’re just beyond Ukraine. If the Russian army rolls through the breadbasket of Europe, they might want some goulash to go with it, and in 2017, you spent just 1.06 percent of your GDP on your military. Dear friends in the Czech Republic, you’re just past Poland, and you’re at 1.05 percent. Maybe Slovenia is spending less than 1 percent of GDP on defense because they’re certain Melania Trump would never allow the nation of her birth to be invaded.

Guys, you’re the ones facing the biggest risk. If Russia’s military starts acting out its expansionist fantasies, we’re not going to see them begin with Russian ships advancing up the Potomac River. What’s really baffling is that these countries are reluctant to finance a military buildup with an American president who talks about the NATO alliance as if it’s a giant scam and who talks about European nations as if they’re delinquent on the rent. If there was ever a time for these countries to start spending on their own defense, this is it.

Lithuania figured out the score. They share a border with Russia and just got it up to 2 percent. NATO thinks that eight member countries will meet the 2 percent threshold in 2018, which is an improvement — but there are 29 members!

The Norwegian drama series Occupied offers the painfully funny lesson that if the United States ever decides that the NATO alliance isn’t worth it, it more or less ceases to exist. Sure, Trump has a crude, ahistorical perspective on the value of the alliance, but less than half of NATO member states are putting much effort into dispelling the notion that they’re a bunch of freeloaders who won’t take responsibility for the safety and security of their own citizens.

‘Judge Kavanaugh Has Been a Role Model to Us Personally as well as Professionally’

We would expect Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s former clerks to like him and endorse him . . . but it is reassuring to see 34 of them writing a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee touting his exceptional qualities as a legal mind and as a human being:

During his time on the D.C. Circuit, Judge Kavanaugh has come to work every day dedicated to engaging in the hard work of judging. We never once saw him take a shortcut, treat a case as unimportant, or search for an easy answer. Instead, in each case, large or small, he masters every detail and rereads every precedent. He listens carefully to the views of his colleagues and clerks, even – indeed, especially – when they differ from his own. He drafts opinions painstakingly, writing and rewriting until he is satisfied each opinion is clear and well-reasoned, and can be understood not only by lawyers but by the parties and the public. We saw time and again that this work ethic flows from a fundamental humility. Judge Kavanaugh never assumes he knows the answers in advance and never takes for granted that his view of the law will prevail. Perhaps unsurprisingly, then, Judge Kavanaugh has been a role model to us personally as well as professionally. He is unfailingly warm and gracious with his colleagues no matter how strongly they disagree about a case, and he is well-liked and respected by judges and lawyers across the ideological spectrum as a result.

It’s rather fascinating to watch lefty voices complain about news coverage of Kavanaugh being too focused on him as “a carpool dad” and focused on humanizing personality traits . . . when there’s an entire line of merchandise about “the notorious RBG” and gobs of glowing coverage of tough grandma Ruth Bader Ginsburg in places such as Glamour magazine, and she’s been invited to do her workout routine on Stephen Colbert’s comedy show. Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize we were only allowed to have lighter, humanizing, personality-based coverage of Supreme Court justices appointed by Democrats.

Put Crudely, We’re Pretty Awesome, America

Remember when we were worried that America’s future would be one of crippling weakness and dependence on foreign oil? Yeah, never mind.

“In 2019, [the U.S. Energy Information Agency (EIA)] forecasts that the United States will average nearly 12 million barrels of crude oil production per day,” said Linda Capuano, Administrator of the EIA. “If the forecast holds, that would make the U.S. the world’s leading producer of crude.”

We’ve been producing more than 10 million barrels a day in 2018.

ADDENDA: Our Charlie Cooke lays out why the press earns its distrust. Elsewhere, I point out a frustrating, deeply misleading headline that suggests that some copy editors at major newspapers simply don’t know much about the places that their outlets are covering.

What we know about the ‘Hapsburg group’ named in Manafort lobbying scheme
 

mikenova shared this story .

Ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly paid a group of former senior European politicians to covertly promote the interests of Ukraine’s previous pro-Russia government in Washington, according to a new indictment.

The superseding indictment filed by special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday says Manafort “secretly retained” the ex-politicians, known as the “Hapsburg group”, to lobby for Ukraine in 2012 and 2013.

Here is everything the indictment tells us about the group and their involvement in the scheme.

Why Ukraine?

The indictment says Manafort earned tens of millions of dollars in income representing the interests of Ukraine, its political parties and leaders in a covert lobbying scheme.

Manafort, who was previously charged with multiple counts of tax and bank fraud, faces new charges of conspiracy, money-laundering, failing to register as an agent for a foreign actor and making false statements as a result of the alleged scheme.

How did the former European leaders get involved?

According to the indictment, acting on behalf of then-Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych and his Party of Regions, Manafort in 2012 retained the so-called Hapsburg group to “take positions favorable to Ukraine, including by lobbying the United States.”

The plan was for the group to “appear to be providing their independent assessments of Government of Ukraine actions, when in fact they were paid lobbyists for Ukraine,” the indictment said.

Why did Manafort want them?

Manafort called the group “SUPER VIP” in an “EYES ONLY” memo created around June 2012, in which he explained that he wanted to “assemble a group of high-level European highly influencial [sic] champions and politically credible friends who can act informally and without any visible relationship with the Government of Ukraine.”

Who was in the ‘Hapsburg group’?

The indictment says the group was managed by a former European chancellor, who it names as Foreign Politician A, in coordination with Manafort.

While the former chancellor is not named in the filing, the head of government in both Austria and Germany is known as the chancellor.

What did the group actually do?

In 2013, the former chancellor and other former politicians from the group lobbied US Members of Congress, officials in the Executive Branch and their staff in coordination with Manafort, the indictment says.

How much did the group get paid?

According to the filing, Manafort paid the group more than 2 million euros in 2012 and 2013, wiring the money through at least four offshore accounts.

The ‘Hapsburg group’? European ex-politicians under scrutiny after Mueller indictment – The Washington Post

Though the group’s members weren’t named, they are collectively given an informal nickname: the “Hapsburg group,” an apparent reference (using an alternative spelling) to the Habsburg royal dynasty that ruled the Holy Roman Empire for centuries.

MORE DETAILS ON MANAFORT’S ‘HAPSBURG GROUP’: We reported earlier this month that a document released as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation shed new light on the former European politicians Paul Manafort considered recruiting as part of the “Hapsburg group.” Mueller has accused Manafort of violating foreign lobbying law by orchestrating the group’s lobbying efforts in the U.S. without registering as a foreign agent. The document, a 2012 memo written by former journalist Alan Friedman and addressed to Manafort, identified eight politicians that Friedman and Alfred Gusenbauer, a former Austrian chancellor, proposed recruiting to lobby.

Story Continued Below

— Only one of those politicians responded to requests for comment from POLITICO at the time. But we heard from another one, Aleksander Kwaśniewski, a former Polish president, late last week. He said he’d never heard of the Hapsburg group. Kwaśniewski said he met Manafort for the first time on Oct. 23, 2012, “during the international conference in Berlin, so the attached documents from September 2012 are completely unclear to me,” he wrote in an email, referring to the memo in which Friedman proposed recruiting him. Kwaśniewski said he traveled to the U.S. a few months later. On Feb. 1, 2013, he “had a series of meetings in Congress, Senate and State Department about Ukraine, but I cannot find my notes from these meetings and after so many years I do not recall who I was meeting with,” he wrote.

— In a follow-up email, Kwaśniewski wrote that he didn’t recall who had arranged those meetings, but that it wasn’t Manafort. “I have never worked for Mr. Manafort,” he wrote. “I was acting as a Former President of Poland, engaged in the Ukrainian matters since 1991. … The main subject of the meetings was the situation in Ukraine and the relations between Ukraine and the West.”

HAGIN’S FORMER BUSINESS PARTNER HAS A WHITE HOUSE IN: When Joe Hagin, one of President Donald Trump’s top aides, planned the president’s first foreign trip last year, Steve Atkiss went to Saudi Arabia, too. Atkiss, one of Hagin’s former partners at the Command Group, a security and intelligence firm, served as the White House’s volunteer logistics lead. “Hagin’s partnership with Atkiss since joining the Trump White House has drawn attention in the tight-knit community of presidential trip planners,” POLITICO’s Josh Meyer and Andrew Restuccia report. “Last month, some complained when Hagin’s former business partner was tapped for an even more high-profile and sensitive assignment than planning the Saudi trip — working as his on-site deputy in orchestrating the historic nuclear summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.”

— “It’s common for the White House to farm out the intensive planning known as ‘advance’ work to outsiders, who like Atkiss often work as volunteers. … But by tapping Atkiss, 41, for such sensitive and influential positions, Hagin may be helping him gain an edge in drumming up business for Command by affording him easy access to foreign governments and private individuals who could help the firm win future security and consulting contracts, current and former U.S. officials told POLITICO.” Full story.

COMPANIES WINNING TARIFF WAIVERS DON’T HAVE LOBBYISTS: The Commerce Department announced last week that seven companies received exclusions from the Trump administration’s steel and aluminum tariffs: Schick Manufacturing Inc., Nachi America Inc., Hankev International, Zapp Precision Wire, U.S. Leakless Inc., Woodings Industrial Corporation and PolyVision Corporation. None of the companies retain lobbyists, according to disclosure filings. That’s not unusual. “This is an administrative or a regulatory process, so some companies will do it themselves, some companies would hire a lawyer to help them fill out the paperwork,” said Paul Nathanson, a spokesman for theCoalition of American Metal Manufacturers and Users. But he predicted that “you’ll likely see an uptick in lobbying activity if you see many exclusion requests rejected by the Commerce Department.”

NATURAL GAS COALITION LAUNCHES: A new coalition to promote the natural gas industry launched today. The members of the so-called Global Natural Gas Coalition include the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America; American Petroleum Institute; the American Gas Association; the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Global Energy Institute; the American Chemistry Council; the National Association of Manufacturers; and the Laborers’ International Union of North America. In an interview with PI, Don Santa, chief executive of INGAA, said the coalition’s main objective is to be “a unified voice in term of the benefits of natural gas” both domestically and internationally. Today’s launch coincides with the World Gas Conference this week.

THINK TANK OF THE ‘RADICAL CENTER’ SEARCHES FOR IDENTITY IN TRUMP’S WASHINGTON: Rachel Cohen has a detailed piece in Washingtonian examining the travails of the think tank New America. “Founded at the height of the Nasdaq boom, New America was meant to be an antidote to other Washington think tanks — a young, nimble provocateur that would dispense with convention and birth fresh ideas. Nearly two decades later, the organization, which now employs more than 250 people, is casting about for relevance in a hyper-partisan era, according to interviews with more than three dozen current and former staffers, many of whom wanted anonymity for fear of retribution in the tight-knit DC policymaking community. In a way, it’s a symbol of an entire Washington industry — policymaking — that’s under pressure to fund itself without making ideological or ethical sacrifices.” Full story.

IF YOU MISSED IT THIS WEEKEND: “Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, discussed hiring a friend of a lobbyist family that owned a condominium he was renting for $50 a night, newly released emails suggest,” The New York Times’ Lisa Friedman and Hiroko Tabuchi report. The potential hire “was discussed in emails between Mr. Pruitt’s chief of staff, Ryan Jackson, and [J. StevenHart, who was chairman of the Washington lobbying firm Williams & Jensen and whose wife, Vicki Hart, rented the condo to Mr. Pruitt. Other subjects discussed during and after Mr. Pruitt rented Ms. Hart’s condo included refrigerant chemicals, which was raised on behalf of Coca-Cola, and the Paris Agreement — the global climate pact to address climate change — discussed on behalf of the global bank HSBC.”

— “The emails also show that Mr. Hart suggested other potential hires to the E.P.A., including one person who he emphasized was a Republican and an African-American, on behalf of an executive of the philanthropic arm of the pork giant Smithfield Foods.” Full story.

WHERE YOU WANT TO WORK: The Washington Post is out with its latest ranking of the best workplaces in Washington. Among the law and lobbying firms on the list: WilmerHale, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld Kelley Drye & Warren and Alston & Bird. Among the trade groups: the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, theNational Recreation and Park Association (which does sound like a nice place to work), the American Health Care Association and the American Gas Association. The AARP also made the list.

PUERTO RICO POLÍTICA

Héctor Ferrer acusa al Gobierno de Rosselló de la situación crítica de Puerto Rico

EFEUSASan Juan

El presidente del opositor Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) de Puerto Rico, Héctor Ferrer, acusó en entrevista con Efe al Gobierno de ineficacia en el área económica, falta de transparencia en los muertos por María y tolerar la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, todo causa de una situación crítica. EFE/ArchivoEl presidente del opositor Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) de Puerto Rico, Héctor Ferrer, acusó en entrevista con Efe al Gobierno de ineficacia en el área económica, falta de transparencia en los muertos por María y tolerar la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, todo causa de una situación crítica. EFE/Archivo

El presidente del opositor Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) de Puerto Rico, Héctor Ferrer, acusó en entrevista con Efe al Gobierno de ineficacia en el área económica, falta de transparencia en los muertos por María y tolerar la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, todo causa de una situación crítica.

“Miles de personas permanecen sin energía, cientos de intersecciones tienen estropeados los semáforos y cerca de cinco mil negocios que estaban operativos antes del huracán no han podido abrir”, un complicado panorama descrito por Ferrer al que en su opinión el Gobierno liderado por Ricardo Rosselló no ha sabido responder.

Ferrer aseguró que tampoco ha contribuido a mejorar las cosas la desde su punto de vista mala administración por parte del Ejecutivo de los fondos federales llegados a Puerto Rico para paliar los daños causados por el huracán María del pasado septiembre.

El presidente del PPD, una formación que defiende el actual estatus de Puerto Rico de Estado Libre Asociado a Estados Unidos, lo que le permite al Ejecutivo local cierto grado de autonomía y contar con su propia Constitución, subraya que la isla caribeña se enfrenta a una realidad complicada a la que no se dan las respuestas adecuadas.

“El Gobierno colapso tras el huracán María”, subraya Ferrer, para quien la isla solo comenzó a ver la luz tras la llegada de las autoridades federales a Puerto Rico una semana después del desastre.

Asegura que los distintos departamentos del Gobierno, comenzando por la Agencia Estatal para el Manejo que Emergencias, no estuvieron a la altura de la situación tras María.

Ferrer indicó que la cadena de errores comenzó en la gestión de la respuesta al huracán, a lo que siguió el controvertido asunto de la cifra de muertes ocasionadas por el ciclón, que el Gobierno de Rosselló mantiene fueron 64 personas, cifra oficial que contrasta con un informe de la Universidad de Harvard que la sitúa en más de 4.500.

“El Gobierno insiste en la cifra de 64 muertos pero todo el mundo sabe que fueron muchos más” asegura el líder de la oposición, para quien no tienen sentido que el Ejecutivo trate de enmascarar la cifra real de fallecidos.

La lista de graves problemas a los que se enfrenta Puerto Rico sigue con el papel de la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal, entidad de control al Ejecutivo de San Juan impuesta por una ley aprobada por el Congreso en Washington para atender el problema de una deuda pública impagable y encauzar las cuentas públicas.

“Estoy en contra de la Junta por contradecir el derecho natural de escoger las personas que nos gobiernen”, sostuvo el líder del PPD, tras matizar que “Junta y Gobierno son la misma cosa”.

La JSF exige, tras negociar con el Ejecutivo de Rosselló, la derogación de la Ley 80 que garantiza una indemnización por despido injustificado, una medida criticada por el PPD.

“Espero que el Senado mantenga su oposición y no permita que esa ley se elimine”, resaltó Ferrer, para quien no existe estudio alguno que señale que acabar con esa norma que garantiza una indemnización por despidos vaya a suponer un estímulo para la economía.

“La responsabilidad de la Junta es enderezar las finanzas del Gobierno, pero la eliminación de la Ley 80 no tiene ninguna influencia en eso”, defendió Ferrer.

A su juicio, la economía solo mejorará si se consigue un Gobierno más eficiente y unos municipios con una gestión más óptima que la actual de los servicios que se presentan a los ciudadanos.

Además, rechazó que el Gobierno exija austeridad a los ciudadanos mientras hay jefes de agencia que cobran hasta 400.000 dólares anuales

En cuanto al asunto del estatus de Puerto Rico, dijo que los esfuerzos del Gobierno para convertir a la isla en un estado más de EEUU han sido inútiles y que el Ejecutivo utiliza el asunto de la relación política con Estados Unidos para desviar la atención de los problemas reales que no sabe solucionar.

Ferrer subrayó que defiende el desarrollo del Estado Libre Asociado para ganar mayor autonomía y permitir así que la isla goce de una economía más robusta, postura que choca con el Gobierno, que defiende la plena anexión de Puerto Rico a Estados Unidos como un estado más del país norteamericano.

El líder de la oposición criticó además la situación por la que atraviesa la isla en el ámbito de la criminalidad, en su opinión sin una respuesta contundente a causa de la mala gestión del secretario del Departamento de Seguridad Pública (DSP), Héctor Pesquera.

Pidió que prescinda de los servicios de Pesquera, un funcionario que como recordó gana anualmente cerca de 250.000 dólares, y que la Policía vuelva a ser responsabilidad exclusiva de una sola persona.

Crisis en el PNP | Opinión
 

Por: Lcdo. Iván Rivera

Facebook: Facebook.com/DiscusionPuertoRico

Ramón, la semana pasada el PNP demostró síntomas de su primera gran crisis en este cuatrienio. Ante la falta de oposición real, y lo inconsecuente que ha resultado ser el PPD, en este ciclo electoral todas las situaciones del diario vivir de la administración habían sido paliadas con relativo éxito.

La excepción a eso lo fueron los dos temas relacionados a los huracanes ligados a la administración Trump y que, por ende, eran “sexies” para cierto sector del “media monopoly” de EE.UU. Los cuales aún, de vez en cuando, remachan sobre los mismos. De hecho, ni tanto. Luego de aspavientos con el tema de Whitefish, ni las investigaciones congresionales, ni de las agencias investigativas federales, han levantado un ápice de ilegalidad. Pero, en fin, era sexy decir que el tipo que aspiraba a ser empresario, sin dinero y con oficina original en una choza de Montana, había obtenido un contrato millonario, no por sus conocimientos, sino porque lo traqueteó alguien en el ministerio de lo interior del gobierno de Trump. Si la era Trump hubiese sido en 1976, Steve Jobs y Steve Wozniak hubiesen sido lapidados y hoy no tendrías tu Iphone.

Pero a lo que vinimos. Tanto el choque frontal del gobernador con Rivera Schatz, así como el desaire que le realizara Trump ante su petición informal de estadidad, en sus consecuencias, representan la primera gran crisis del presente ciclo electoral para el PNP y sus aspiraciones a la reelección.

El primero sumerge a la administración en una incertidumbre fiscal que puede tener efectos políticos adversos. Además, abre una fisura de división que puede llenarles el barco de agua. El segundo, toca la fibra de lo que le da unidad al PNP: el asunto “ideológico”. Si las huestes del PNP, ante dicho desaire comienzan a perder de perspectiva eso que los une, por imposible que aparenta ser, junto con la fisura antes mencionada, puede ser el comienzo del final. Algo similar le pasó al PPD con AGP el cuatrienio anterior y su falta de liderazgo terminó enterrándolo. Ahora queda por verse el talante de liderazgo de Ricky.

Por: Lcdo. Ramón L. Rosario Cortés

Iván, discrepo con el título que seleccionas. No estamos en una crisis del PNP sino en todo nuestro entorno económico y fiscal. Y eso, no es algo que nace en esta administración, sino que venimos experimentando con distintas gradaciones desde la administración de Sila María Calderón.

Ciertamente, el gobernador y el pueblo añaden a su lista de retos, el que no se haya podido cumplir con el acuerdo con la Junta de Supervisión Fiscal sobre la derogación de la Ley 80. Cumplirlo, aseguraba mucho dinero para nuestro desarrollo económico y protegía importantes derechos de la clase trabajadora como su bono de Navidad y sus días de vacaciones y enfermedad. Luego de que al gobernador recibiera el apoyo de la comisionada residente, alcaldes del PNP y su delegación en la Cámara de Representantes, el Senado determinó no darle paso.

Iván, cada funcionario electo es escogido democráticamente para tomar las determinaciones que entiendan benefician más a sus constituyentes. Muchas veces, las cosas que benefician al pueblo no son simpáticas. No obstante, por muchas décadas, otros han tomado determinaciones simpáticas y rehusado hacer lo correcto; por eso tenemos un gobierno en quiebra y una migración sin precedentes a otras jurisdicciones de los Estados Unidos.

El gobernador y los representantes tomaron su determinación señalando los posibles riesgos de no hacer lo correcto. El Senado tomó su determinación y es su derecho y responsabilidad. Pero, cada cual debe estar consciente que cada acción tiene resultados y hay que asumirlos y explicarlos. Eso le tocará a cada uno. No creo que el gobernador pierda liderato o apoyo con esta situación. Consistentemente, todos los estudios y encuestas de opinión resaltan la figura del gobernador porque no es un político tradicional y vino a hacer grandes cambios en las áreas de energía, educación, contributiva, salud, permisos, y otras.

Sobre Trump, lo que vi fue un gobernador valiente que exige para su pueblo la igualdad que merecemos. La reacción de Trump fue una “jocosa” ante un planteamiento al que no se puede oponer. Prefiero que mi gobernador utilice cada oportunidad que tenga para exigir la igualdad que solo nos dará la Estadidad.

Busch’s case has ties to former New York congressman Anthony Weiner’s federal sexting scandal back in 2016. The name of the minor in Busch’s case matches the minor’s name in the former congressman’s sexting case. USA TODAY

Jonathan Conrad Busch, 54, a former North Carolina teacher, is charged with two counts each of statutory rape of a child under the age of 15 and indecent liberties with a child, according to the Gaston County Sheriff’s Office.(Photo: Gaston County Sheriff’s Office)

GASTONIA, N.C. — Authorities arrested a former North Carolina teacher Thursday on sex offenses involving a minor.

The Gaston County Sheriff’s Office says 54-year-old Jonathan Conrad Busch of Mooresville, North Carolina is charged with two counts each of statutory rape of a child under the age of 15 and indecent liberties with a child.

Gastonia Police Officer R.S. Lewis said in an arrest warrant the indecent liberties and statutory rape charges involved the same girl and occurred between June and September 2016.

According to WCNC-TV, Busch’s case has ties to former New York congressman Anthony Weiner’s federal sexting scandal back in 2016. The name of the minor in Busch’s case matches the minor’s name in the former congressman’s sexting case.

Weiner is currently serving a 21-month sentence in federal prison after admitting to illicit online contact with a 15-year-old girl living in Gaston County.

Weiner had been married to Huma Abedin, a prominent aide to former 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, and many political experts cited his crime as a factor in Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump.

In a letter sent to parents, Lake Norman High School Principal Keith Gentle confirmed that Busch resigned from his position as a social studies teacher due to the nature of his criminal charges.

Iredell-Statesville Schools Superintendent Brady Johnson told NBC Charlotte that none of Busch’s crimes occurred on the high school’s campus nor did they involve any current or former students at the school.

According to the school system, Busch worked at Lake Norman High School for almost 15 years as a social studies teacher.

Bob Leonard, a local resident who lives just up the road from Busch’s Mooresville house, told WCNC-TV that he never spoke with him. As a grandfather, Leonard said the criminal charges concerned him.

“It’s just a little disturbing that we learn more about this,” Leonard said. “The advice I’d have to people is to pay attention and get involved and know what your kids are doing.”

Busch was arrested and released on a $20,000 bond. He’s scheduled to appear in district court on Monday, according to WCNC-TV.

Foco federal sobre otro contratista de San Juan

Las autoridades federales indagan sobre el contratista y productor Jeff Fontánez, propietario de la desaparecida empresa Buena Vibra y de la actual compañía Cosa Buena Corp., en relación al presunto esquema de corrupción en la división de compras del municipio de San Juan.

Fuentes de EL VOCERO indican que agentes del Negociado Federal de Investigaciones (FBI), averiguan sobre el empresario, sus contratos y lazos con el ayuntamiento.

De acuerdo a las fuentes, el nombre de Fontánez surgió como parte de la pesquisa que efectúa el FBI sobre supuestos actos ilegales en el municipio.

La investigación surgió tras la radicación de una demanda interpuesta contra el ayuntamiento por parte de la exdirectora de la división de compras Yadira Molina, por alegadas represalias y hostigamiento laboral luego de que la exfuncionaria denunció las presuntas prácticas ante el secretario municipal Magdiel Pérez y la Oficina del Contralor.

La pasada semana este diario informó que el propietario de BR Solutions, Corp., Leonel Pereira, está en la mirilla de las autoridades federales.

Según el recurso legal, en el municipio de San Juan se inició una práctica por parte de los supervisores de Molina de solicitar órdenes de compra en horas de la tarde para cotizaciones o la entrega de artículos para el otro día.

Se alega que el ayuntamiento tenía unos “suplidores preferidos”, quienes cobraban el triple que los suplidores regulares, debido al poco tiempo con el que se solicitaban las cotizaciones. De acuerdo al recurso legal, Pereira le informó a Molina que su compañía recibía la lista de materiales y especificaciones de compras con varios días o hasta semanas antes de que el ayuntamiento emitiera la lista oficial de los artículos.

Ni niega ni confirma

El portavoz de prensa del FBI, Carlos Osorio, dijo que no podía confirmar ni negar la existencia de la pesquisa. Entretanto, personal del municipio de San Juan no devolvió llamada solicitando su reacción a este nuevo ángulo de la pesquisa federal.

EL VOCERO se comunicó con Fontánez, quien aseguró que no ha sido contactado por el FBI y negó haber cometido actos ilegales.

“Ningún acto ilegal”

“Los contratos están en el Contralor y son públicos. No he cometido ningún acto ilegal”, afirmó.

Al ser cuestionado sobre la implicación que hizo el representante novoprogresista Georgie Navarro de que le habría pagado un viaje a Minnesota a la alcaldesa Carmen Yulín Cruz para asistir a un juego de Grandes Ligas, Fontánez respondió “no tengo nada que decir sobre esto. Es mentira”.

De acuerdo al registro de contratos de la Oficina del Contralor, Cosa Buena Group obtuvo dos contratos con el ayuntamiento capitalino que totalizaron $306,222 para las Fiestas de la Calle San Sebastián para los años 2017 y 2018.

Uno por la cantidad de $136,000 del 16 de enero de 2018 al 21 de enero de 2018 por concepto de servicios de “publicidad, de representación o artísticos”. Bajo el renglón de tipo de servicio se indica que por “servicios de productor”.

El otro contrato fue por la cantidad de $170,222 del 16 de enero de 2017 al 23 de enero de 2017 por concepto de “servicios misceláneos no personales”. Bajo el renglón de tipo de servicio indica “servicios de rotulación”.

Catorce contratos

Mientras, que la empresa Buena Vibra Group, obtuvo 14 contratos entre enero de 2013 a septiembre de 2016 por $1,159,987.

Bajo el renglón de categoría de servicios figuran: “servicios de publicidad, de representación o artísticos; compra, venta y/o alquiler de inmuebles; interagenciales y servicios misceláneos no personales”.

Según el registro del Contralor Electoral, en el 2015 Fontánez hizo una donación de $1,000 a Cruz Soto.

Por su parte, la directora de comunicaciones del municipio, Carmen Serrano, ha sostenido que “la política del municipio de San Juan es que no hacemos comentarios sobre casos sometidos ante los tribunales o bajo investigación”.

FBI Still Stonewalls Congress On Russia: More Deep State Obstruction?
 

Russia Investigation: After Congress threatened impeachment, the Department of Justice and FBI reluctantly handed over classified documents related to the Russia investigation. But they still haven’t fully complied with Congress’ request. Is this just more deep-state obstruction?

X

Of course, that’s a loaded question. Sure, the bureaucrats at DOJ and the FBI have a responsibility to keep the nation’s secrets and to maintain the integrity of their own investigations. But they don’t have a right to hold back information legitimately requested by Congress for its investigation into the highly questionable behavior of both the DOJ and FBI during the Russia-Trump investigation.

“A spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan said Saturday that the department (of Justice) has partially complied with subpoenas from the House Intelligence and Judiciary committees after officials turned over more than a thousand new documents this week,” the Associated Press reported.

It’s that phrase “partially complied” that sticks in our throat. Imagine “partially complying” with a judge’s order to tell the whole and complete truth in a court case. Or “partially complying” with your requirement to file you taxes. Or “partially complying” with a police officer’s lawful order to stop.

“Partial” compliance isn’t enough. Congress has repeatedly requested documents for its investigation, but has been denied. And we need to be absolutely clear here: Congress has oversight authority over both the Justice Department and FBI. So saying “No” to Congress’ request, unless it’s grounded in serious national security concerns, is not acceptable. Period.

Try impeding an investigation by DOJ or the FBI and you’ll immediately be charged with obstruction or worse, with the possibility of going to prison for many years. Why should DOJ and the FBI be exempt from the law?

Some in Congress aren’t happy about all this. Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina is one of them.

“New reports of DOJ-FBI compliance with document requests are NOT accurate,” he tweeted. “While they have turned over additional documents, the new documents represent a small percentage of what they owe.”

“The notion that DOJ/FBI have been forthcoming with Congress is false,” he wrote.

The problem is, Congress needs to get to the bottom of what looks to be a massive conspiracy within the FBI and DOJ to boost Hillary Clinton’s election chances, while impeding Trump’s. If true, and certainly evidence amassed so far indicates it is, it would be the biggest government scandal in at least 100 years. Bigger, yes, than Watergate.

That’s why Congress has sought so much documentation from FBI Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein. They demand more than 1.4 million documents, a large amount to be sure, but have only received roughly 800,000 pages. Last week’s delivery amounted to just 1,400 pages or so. So you can see why some investigation-minded representatives, such as Meadows, aren’t satisfied.

The Justice Department and FBI had a Friday deadline to hand over the documents. They only partially complied. Yet the vow by Rep. Devin Nunes “there’s going to be hell to pay” if they didn’t comply seems to have fallen on deaf ears.

Russia Investigation: Unanswered Questions

The questions about the Russia investigation launched by the FBI and later picked up by Special Counsel Robert Mueller are many.

Congress, for instance, wants access to transcripts of conversations between “confidential human sources” — spies — and Trump campaign officials.

Congressional Republicans also seek to understand how former British spy Christopher Steele, who compiled the now-infamous Trump dossier, came to be paid by the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and the FBI. Collusion, anyone?

And they also want to look into how the FBI and DOJ used the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to spy on the Trump campaign.

These are all legitimate issues. Stonewalling is an old strategy. Maybe the deep state is hoping for a Blue Wave in November to get Congress off its back.

Regardless, whether the U.S. remains a healthy, law-abiding republic or sinks to the level of other nations now ruled by corrupt elite bureaucracies is what’s at stake here. Who decides what gets handed over — a group of unelected bureaucrats, or the representatives of the American people?

Americans deserve answers. They should demand them.

The game they play:

The Manipulations of the Public Opinions

Trump tries to deflect the public attention from the Elections 2016Russia” (and several “significant others”, do not miss this, it is very important) Scandal, by creating the “Biblical Children Border Crisis“, and Comey tries to deflect the unprecedented FBI criticism during his tenure by exploiting this crisis, (and “quite sincerely”, don’t get me wrong).

The name of the game is the same: to get the edge over the opponent in the court of the public opinion, and this looks very much like a political – ideological struggle. The phenomenon of “politicization” is ubiquitous and inescapable, that’s how it looks.

“Public opinion is a reed that moves with the wind. The rule of law is a rock that keeps us free”, said Judge Andrew Napolitano. Sounds about right.

7:35 AM 6/22/2018 – James Comey interview on Trump, Russia, Hillary Clinton and the USA’s border policy | NICK FERRARI – Former FBI Director James Comey’s Comments On Donald Trump Are Brutal

James Comey found out he was being fired by Donald Trump by seeing it on TV. He told Nick Ferrari the truth of his relationship with the President of the US.

The former FBI Director was credited with turning the election in favour of Mr Trump after he announced an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use shortly before the vote.

But his relationship with Trump turned sour and he was fired by the new President.

In a fascinating interview with Nick Ferrari, he describes his intimate dinners with Trump.

He said: “I never saw him laugh and I had dinner alone with him for about an hour and a half.

“He talks nearly the entire time and it’s about him telling you how great he is and seeking your affirmation. But there’s no humour, which is deeply concerning in a leader.”

James Comey had strong words for Donald Trump on LBC

Mr Comey was extremely critical of the separation of immigrant children from their parents on the US border, but believes it may have led to the tide turning on the public’s perception of Trump.

“It’s a shameful thing,” he said. “If there’s any good in it, it may be awakening the American people to the way in which our values are being affected by this President.”

He believes the US has regressed to similar levels as the 1950s in terms of racism and intolerance, adding: “I think it’s very similar.

“We’re in a period of reaction and pain and retrenchment. And we’re led by someone who exploits that at the expense of the centre of America, which is our values.

“But the good news is, we always get back on track. I live in a wonderful diverse country, which is often messy and bumpy. We make great progress, we then retrench, then we make great progress again. We will be ok.”

As mass shootings filter in and out of the news cycle at an almost dizzying pace with each new tragedy, the FBI has continued to probe why these atrocities continue and what can be done to stop them.

In a new report released Wednesday, the bureau shed light on behaviors of shooters before they acted out, finding most obtained a gun legally and did not have diagnosed mental health issues, points that run contrary to some popular beliefs.

Active shooting incidents have continued to plague the nation but last year, there were 30 incidents across the U.S. — the highest number since the FBI began tracking the phenomenon. Last year also broke a record for the highest death toll in any single year.

“Faced with so many tragedies, society routinely wrestles with a fundamental question: can anything be done to prevent attacks on our loved ones, our children, our schools, our churches, concerts and communities?” the study says. “There is cause for hope because there is something that can be done.”

More: FBI: More active shooting incidents in 2017 than any other year recorded

The 30-page report examines active shooter incidents from 2000 to 2013 and suspects in 63 cases, finding suspects showed signs before they attacked but law enforcement wasn’t notified in more than half the cases until it was too late.

Forty percent of suspects purchased a firearm or multiple guns legally for the sole purpose of an attack. Another 35 percent already legally owned a gun before planning an attack, meaning 75 percent of active shooter incidents reviewed by the FBI legally owned the gun they used in the attack.

The remaining suspects stole, borrowed or purchased a weapon illegally.

The FBI could only verify that 25 percent of the gunmen examined in the study had any type of mental illness diagnoses, including disorders affecting mood, anxiety and personality.

The study noted, although, that a large portion of shooters, about 62 percent, were dealing with stressors in their lives such as depression, anxiety and paranoia before their attack.

Those symptoms don’t mean the suspect was necessarily dealing with a mental illness and the conclusion that all active shooters are mentally ill is both “misleading and unhelpful,” the bureau said.

“In light of the very high lifetime prevalence of the symptoms of mental illness among the U.S. population, formally diagnosed mental illness is not a very specific predictor of violence of any type, let alone targeted violence,” the study says. “Careful consideration should be given to social and contextual factors that might interact with any mental health issue before concluding that an active shooting was ’caused’ by mental illness.”

In an exclusive interview, former FBI director James Comey told DW’s Conflict Zone that despite his career in law enforcement, he doesn’t draw “the darkest inference” about US President Donald Trump’s vehement denials of collusion with Moscow.

“The fact that someone acts this way doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re guilty of something,” Comey told DW. “It could just be this president’s lifelong habit of attacking, attacking, attacking when he feels threatened. But I don’t know what it is, honestly.”

When asked whether he felt like he might get “tainted” by remaining in the Trump administration, Comey said that although there was potential for that, “I thought that was my duty.”

“The nature of the president actually increased my commitment to stay in my role and serve and protect the FBI and the American people,” Comey said.

“I knew it was going to be hard. I knew there were going to be all kinds of difficult situations, but I thought what a coward I would be to walk away from that when I’m supposed to be leading an organization that’s, by spirit and culture, independent.”

Donald Trump shakes hands with James ComeyUS President Donald Trump fired James Comey as FBI director, saying he “was not able to effectively lead the bureau”

Comey was nominated in 2013 by former US President Barack Obama to head the FBI, the US principal federal law enforcement agency.

He rose to notoriety in 2016 when he famously announced that the FBI had found no evidence of criminal intention during Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her stint as state secretary.

Clinton later blamed him for losing the election after he sent lawmakers a letter 11 days before the vote, informing them that the FBI had found new emails deemed “pertinent to the investigation” He later said no evidence had been uncovered that could incriminate Clinton.

In May 2017, Trump fired Comey in a move that was criticized as potentially undermining a probe into Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Critics have accused him of harming the FBI’s credibility, which he has denied.

In DW’s Conflict Zone episode with James Comey set to air next week, the former FBI director talks about those challenges and more.

  • Former FBI Director James Comey

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    A divisive figure

    The seventh in a lineage of FBI directors with law degrees, James Comey has shaped politics in the US as the head of the law enforcement agency. But who is the man behind the headlines? From prosecuting an American celebrity to refusing to sanction the NSA’s mass surveillance program, DW explores the contentious life of James Comey.

  • Martha Stewart leaving a courthouse in New York

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    Taking down a celebrity

    Serving as Manhattan’s chief federal prosecutor, Comey rose to notoriety in 2002, when he led the prosecution of US celebrity Martha Stewart for securities fraud and obstruction of justice. Stewart, widely known in the US for her cooking and lifestyle shows, served a 5-month jail sentence following the highly-publicized case.

  • A prisoner being escorted by military personnel at the Guantanamo Bay detention center

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    Enhanced interrogation

    In late 2003, Comey was confirmed as the US deputy attorney general, making him the second-highest-ranking official in the Justice Department. Serving under former President George W. Bush, Comey endorsed a memorandum approving the use of 13 enhanced interrogation techniques during the War on Terror, including waterboarding. He later said he lobbied to have the policy toned down.

  • Security cameras at the 9/11 Memorial and Museum

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    Mass surveillance

    Comey has warned of the consequences of domestic mass surveillance, saying in March: “There is no such thing as absolute privacy in America.” While serving as acting attorney general during the hospitalization of John Ashcroft in 2004, he refused to endorse the legality of the NSA’s domestic surveillance program, even when pressured by the Bush administration.

  • James Comey and Barack Obama

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    Obama’s choice

    In 2013, then-President Barack Obama nominated Comey to serve as the seventh director of the FBI. He received the nomination despite being a registered member of the Republican party. Later that year, he received congressional approval to takeover the office. In his installation speech, he said the bureau’s work is founded on integrity. “Without integrity, all is lost,” he said.

  • Jews wearing Star of David badges

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    More Holocaust education

    In 2015, Comey penned an op-ed on why he required new FBI special agents and intelligence analysts to visit the Holocaust Museum in Washington. He said the reason was to have them understand the consequences of abusing power and to be confronted by the atrocities humans are capable of. “I believe that the Holocaust is the most significant event in human history,” he said.

  • Hillary Clinton speaking during the Women in the World Summit in New York

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    Election scandal

    In July 2016, Comey announced that the FBI had found no evidence of criminal intention in Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as state secretary. But days before the presidential election, he issued a letter to lawmakers informing them of new emails deemed “pertinent to the investigation.” He later said no evidence was uncovered. Clinton has since blamed Comey for losing the election.

  • US President Donald Trump and then-FBI Director James Comey shake hands

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    ‘You’re fired’

    On May 9, Trump sent Comey an unusual letter firing the FBI director, cutting short his 10-year mandate to lead the bureau. Given the ongoing FBI-led investigation into election-meddling by Russia, critics have warned that the move may amount to obstruction of justice for undermining the probe. Trump later appeared to threaten Comey over the existence of “tapes” of their conversations.

  • US President Donald Trump speaks to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russia's ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    Trump-Russia nexus

    Comey reportedly kept memos of interactions between him and President Donald Trump, which appear to implicate the head of state in attempts to obstruct a federal probe into Russia’s alleged involvement in influencing the 2016 election. The day after US media reported on the existence of the memos, the Justice Department named a special counsel to lead the probe amid fears of White House influence.

  • Then-FBI Director James Comey speaking before a Senate Judiciary Committee

    WHO IS JAMES COMEY?

    Damning testimony?

    In June 2017, shortly after being fired, Comey testified in Congress that he believed Trump fired him over the Russia probe. “I was fired in some way to change, or the endeavor was to change, the way the Russia investigation was being conducted,” he told lawmakers. He has since released a book, in which he described Trump as a “mafia boss” who is “untethered to the truth.”

James Comey’s Brutal Comments On Donald Trump

James Comey found out he was being fired by Donald Trump by seeing it on TV. He told Nick Ferrari the truth of his relationship with the President of the US.

The former FBI Director was credited with turning the election in favour of Mr Trump after he announced an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use shortly before the vote.

But his relationship with Trump turned sour and he was fired by the new President.

In a fascinating interview with Nick Ferrari, he describes his intimate dinners with Trump.

He said: “I never saw him laugh and I had dinner alone with him for about an hour and a half.

“He talks nearly the entire time and it’s about him telling you how great he is and seeking your affirmation. But there’s no humour, which is deeply concerning in a leader.”

Mr Comey was extremely critical of the separation of immigrant children from their parents on the US border, but believes it may have led to the tide turning on the public’s perception of Trump.

“It’s a shameful thing,” he said. “If there’s any good in it, it may be awakening the American people to the way in which our values are being affected by this President.”

He believes the US has regressed to similar levels as the 1950s in terms of racism and intolerance, adding: “I think it’s very similar.

“We’re in a period of reaction and pain and retrenchment. And we’re led by someone who exploits that at the expense of the centre of America, which is our values.

“But the good news is, we always get back on track. I live in a wonderful diverse country, which is often messy and bumpy. We make great progress, we then retrench, then we make great progress again. We will be ok.”

When President Donald Trump appointed Atlanta lawyer Christopher Wray to succeed James Comey as the director of the FBI, my initial reaction was not positive. Wray is a veteran of the Department of Justice and is part of that good-old-boy DOJ network that knows how to protect its own. Indeed, when then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former U.S. attorney, needed a good criminal defense lawyer — whose millions in fees were paid by New Jersey taxpayers — he hired Wray.

Christie was never indicted in the Bridgegate scandal, but defense counsel for those who were sought Christie’s cellphone to demonstrate to jurors the governor’s involvement in the plot to shut down lanes near the George Washington Bridge for political retaliation. Christie claimed that he gave his phone to federal prosecutors, but they told the court that they did not have the phone. Where was it? In a safe of the Atlanta law firm that employed Wray.

The FBI director-to-be, sitting in his office in Atlanta, failed to provide evidence he had that he knew a federal court in Newark was seeking. This sordid episode was not dwelled upon during Wray’s confirmation hearings, at the end of which he was confirmed to a 10-year term running the FBI. So Trump’s search for an outsider who would change the Comey-led culture of political justice and run the nation’s premier law enforcement agency according to the rule of law turned up the ultimate insider.

Earlier this week, Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the behavior of FBI agents — including the former director and former deputy director — during the criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Wray had to thread a small needle.

On the one hand, the FBI is an investigative entity only. It does not decide whom or what to charge; it merely reports its findings to federal prosecutors in conjunction with their presentation of evidence to grand juries. As such, the FBI is subject to the DOJ prosecutors for whom it works, and the DOJ, of course, works for the president.

On the other hand, because both the DOJ and the FBI are guided by the ethical rules that govern lawyers and by the values of the rule of law implicit in American culture and recognized by the courts, the DOJ enjoys some independence from the president, and the FBI enjoys some independence from the DOJ. Principles such as equal protection under the law and due process of law protect life, liberty and property and trump instructions of the president to the DOJ and instructions of the DOJ to the FBI. Stated differently, the FBI must go where the evidence of crime leads it, and the DOJ must prosecute when the evidence is lawfully sufficient, no matter the subject.

This obviously becomes complex and treacherous when the president is the subject of the FBI’s investigation, because one of the rule-of-law principles is that no one can be the judge or prosecutor in his own case. And it was in that context that Director Wray testified earlier this week. His testimony was largely about the response of the present-day FBI to the political excesses of the Comey-led FBI as articulated in a 568-page report issued by the inspector general of the DOJ.

That report found that there was political bias at the FBI and the DOJ in favor of Clinton while she was the subject of a criminal investigation and that there was political prejudice against Trump at the same time. But it also found that the bias and prejudice were not the deciding factors in the ill-advised decision by Comey to announce that Clinton would not be charged and then to recount all the damning evidence the FBI had amassed against her or in his decision to reopen and then reclose the investigation.

In Wray’s testimony, I detected not a political defense of the FBI but rather a careful assessment of the constitutional relationship between Congress and the FBI that demonstrated a grasp of nuance and a defense of the rule of law.

Wray has been battling the House Intelligence Committee over its demands to get a peek at a portion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s files on the president. The committee has threatened Wray and his boss, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, with censure, contempt and even impeachment if Wray fails to deliver the files. Wray’s message to the committee, uttered in his Senate testimony, was that the FBI will follow the law and not surrender privileged information.

A privilege is the ability of the entity that enjoys it to prevent the revelation of information that the privilege covers. The attorney-client and priest-penitent privileges, for example, permit the client or the penitent to prevent the lawyer or the priest from revealing their communications. Wray knows that law enforcement, too, enjoys privileges, such as the obligation to keep matters that have been presented to a grand jury, the thoughts and impressions and strategies of investigators and prosecutors, and information developed from confidential sources secret.

By signaling that he will honor those privileges in the investigation of President Trump, Wray is upholding the rule of law. Were he not to do this, he’d be spilling the contents of a criminal file to the political allies of the subject of the file — a spill that the law would not condone because it would put the president above the law.

In defending these rule-of-law privileges, Director Wray is upholding the independence of the FBI against an unforgiving political onslaught orchestrated by the president’s allies. I hope this is resolved in a court of law and not in the court of public opinion. Public opinion is a reed that moves with the wind. The rule of law is a rock that keeps us free.

The disgrace of Comey’s FBI | Editorials

The long-awaited Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation makes for depressing reading for anyone who cares about American democracy. Self-government depends on public trust in its institutions, especially law enforcement. The IG’s 568-page report makes clear that the FBI under former director James Comey betrayed that public trust in a way not seen since J. Edgar Hoover.

We use the Hoover analogy advisedly, realizing that the problem in this case was not rampant illegal spying. Though IG Michael Horowitz’s conclusions are measured, his facts are damning. They show that Mr. Comey abused his authority, broke with long-established Justice Department norms, and deceived his superiors and the public.

While the IG says Mr. Comey’s decisions were not the result of “political bias,” he presided over an investigating team that included agents who clearly were biased against Donald Trump. The damage to the bureau’s reputation—and to thousands of honest agents—will take years to repair.

The issue of political bias is almost beside the point. The IG scores Mr. Comey for “ad hoc decisionmaking based on his personal views.” Like Hoover, Mr. Comey believed that he alone could protect the public trust. And like Hoover, this hubris led him to make egregious mistakes of judgment that the IG says “negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice.”

The report scores Mr. Comey in particular for his “conscious decision not to tell [Justice] Department leadership about his plans to independently announce” an end to the investigation at his July 5 press conference in which he exonerated but criticized Mrs. Clinton. And the IG also scores his action 11 days before the 2016 presidential election, on October 28, to send a letter to Congress saying the investigation had been reopened.

The decision to prosecute belongs to the Attorney General and Justice, not the FBI. And the FBI does not release derogatory information on someone against whom it is not bringing charges. Regarding the October letter informing Congress that the FBI was renewing the investigation, FBI policy is not to announce investigations. “We found unpersuasive Comey’s explanation,” deadpans the IG.

“We found that it was extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same,” says the report.

“Comey waited until the morning of his press conference to inform [Attorney General Loretta] Lynch and [Deputy Attorney General Sally ] Yates of his plans to hold one without them, and did so only after first notifying the press. As a result, Lynch’s office learned about Comey’s plans via press inquiries rather than from Comey. Moreover, when Comey spoke with Lynch he did not tell her what he intended to say in his statement.”

All of this underscores the case that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made when he advised President Trump in May 2017 that he should fire Mr. Comey. The President’s mistake was not firing Mr. Comey immediately upon taking office on Jan. 20, 2017, as some of us advised at the time.

As for political bias, the IG devotes a chapter to the highly partisan texts exchanged over FBI phones between FBI personnel. The IG says he found no evidence that political bias affected investigative decisions, but the details will be fodder for those who think otherwise.

The report also chronicles a long list of other questionable judgments by the FBI and Justice. These include waiting until late October to announce that the FBI was seeking a search warrant for Anthony Weiner’s laptop, though “virtually every fact that was cited” to justify the move had been known a month before.

The unavoidable conclusion is that Mr. Comey’s FBI became a law unto itself, accountable to no one but the former director’s self-righteous conscience. His refusal to follow proper guidelines interfered with a presidential election campaign in a way that has caused millions of Americans in both parties to justifiably cry foul.

This should never happen in a democracy, and steps must be taken so that it never does again. Mr. Horowitz deserves credit for an investigation that was thorough, informative and unplagued by leaks. But it is not the final word. Next week he will be testifying before Congress to flesh out and clarify his findings. Congress should also call FBI agents as witnesses.

The larger damage here is to trust in institutions that are vital to self-government. Mr. Trump will use the facts to attack the FBI, but most agents are honest and nonpartisan. Christopher Wray, the new FBI director, promised Thursday to implement the IG’s recommendations, but his cleanup task is larger. He can start by ending the FBI’s stonewall of Congress on document requests.

Mr. Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have to understand that radical measures are needed to restore public trust in both the FBI and Justice Department. If they won’t do it, someone else must.

Inspector general FBI report is a disgrace – Las Vegas Review-Journal

In response to the report from Inspector General Michael Horowitz regarding the FBI: FBI Director Christopher Wray excusing subversive behavior completely erases trust in the Department of Justice.

Upper-level DOJ personnel are not summer hires or neophyte civil service employees. They are highly trained, highly educated, highly benefited professionals with an exceptionally keen sense of right from wrong and equity over bias. Most have taken an oath of allegiance to this country and to lady justice. But now, many illegal transgressions have been exposed.

The criminal, seditious and/or treasonous acts that have occurred should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Such behavior is not above the law.

Have we lost our Wray?

We hope we’re wrong. But James Comey’s replacement as head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, doesn’t give us much hope for a turnaround at the embattled agency.

“We may never know what happened to James Comey. It may become one of the great enigmas of our time. His solid reputation has become this generation’s Jimmy Hoffa – suddenly vanished from sight, perhaps buried in a putrid landfill of dirty politics.”

— Augusta Chronicle editorial, July 2016, after James Comey’s bizarre, unsupported exoneration of Hillary Clinton

We hope we’re wrong. But James Comey’s replacement as head of the FBI, Christopher Wray, doesn’t give us much hope for a turnaround at the embattled agency.

To fix a problem, you first have to acknowledge it.

Send a letter to the editor

Instead, in his formal reaction last week to an Inspector General’s report of shredded impartiality and permissive procedures at the FBI under Comey, Wray sounded like the rush chairman’s slick, disingenuous defense of his debauched fraternity in the movie Animal House.

Using a twisted series of non sequiturs, the character asks if valid allegations of his fraternity’s reckless revelry are “an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we’re not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America!”

Not that the FBI is the Delta House. Far from it. It is filled bottom to near-top with good men and women of high ideals and integrity. But Wray’s haughty defense of the agency was blissfully dismissive of the egregious affronts to equal justice and fairness under his predecessor – who allowed a handful of Democrat partisans to back over the Constitution and any sense of neutrality in the Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump probes.

“Wray’s performance was worse than disappointing,” writes New York columnist Michael Goodwin. “It was infuriating proof that it will take more than one election to change the corrupt culture of Washington.”

Indeed, Wray’s tone conveyed more than indifference to the scandalous goings-on under Comey – agents plotting to prevent Trump’s ascendancy, rubbing elbows with the Clinton camp, expressing profane contempt for Trump voters, accepting bribes from reporters whom they leaked information to, and more.

Wray seems to think a series of “policies, procedures, and training” will fix any slight shortcomings at the agency. How in the world can you train out such virulent political bias? A strongly worded PowerPoint?

Send a letter to the editor

Then, setting up a straw man – that “nothing in the report impugns the integrity of our workforce as a whole, or the FBI as an institution,” which nobody has ever claimed – he channels the Animal House rush chairman: “The FBI’s men and women are doing all this work with the unfailing fidelity to our Constitution and laws that it demands, the bravery that it deserves, and the integrity that the American people rightly expect.”

Unfailing fidelity? Doesn’t the IG report kind of destroy that argument?

“The way Wray tells it, the FBI is doing just peachy,” writes the Washington Examiner’s Becket Adams. “Did Wray even read the report?”

Either way, he apparently won’t stand here and listen to the rest of us badmouth the United States of America.
