If Republicans, especially Mitch McConnell were really True Patriots as they pretend to be, “they would put America First and no one would have to demand an Independent Investigation. They would do exactly what they did with Benghazi and Hillary Clinton’s emails. But as we are witnessing from Trump and the Republicans, Hypocrisy Is A Fatal Tragedy For America.”

 

The Trump Russia Nexus – New York Times: “Many unknowns remain, but here is what we know about the collusion story so far.”

 

“The acting director of the F.B.I., Andrew McCabe, told Congress on Thursday that President Trump’s firing of James Comey has not derailed the agency’s investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. Which is good news. Despite Mr. Trump’s assertion that the idea of collusion is “a total hoax,” and despite many unknowns, the links continue to pile up. Here is a partial accounting of the connections we do know something about.

 

THE TRUMP FAMILY BUSINESS There may be no Trump Tower in Moscow or St. Petersburg, but it is not for lack of trying. Mr. Trump and his family have sought to do business in Russia since at least the 1980s. They have also developed extensive commercial and personal relationships with politically connected Russian businessmen. In 2008, Donald Trump Jr. told a real estate conference, “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets; say in Dubai, and certainly with our project in SoHo and anywhere in New York,” according to eTurboNews, a travel industry news site. The author James Dodson said that another son, Eric Trump, told him in 2013 that Russians have bankrolled Trump golf courses: “Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.” Eric Trump denies saying that.

 

In addition, Donald Trump worked with the Agalarov family, a prominent Russian business group, to host the 2013 edition of his Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. Mr. Trump met more than a dozen of the country’s most prominent oligarchs while he was there, Bloomberg News reported. Jared Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump and is a senior adviser to the president, has also been caught up in the Russia story. During the transition, Mr. Kushner met with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, as well as with the top executive of a Russian government-owned bank.

 

The world would know much more about Mr. Trump’s foreign partnerships if he had released his tax returns, as every president has done for the last 40 years.”

Trump Fires Acting AG Sally Yates For Refusing To Defend His Illegal Travel Ban!

Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, A 30 Year Veteran Of the Department Of Justice Serving Both Republicans And Democrats, Stood Up For Her Principles Against America’s Most Racist President, Inept About Anything But Larceny And Lying!

 

[WAPO] “Acting Attorney General Sally Yates has ordered Justice Department lawyers not to defend challenges to President Trump’s immigration order temporarily banning entry into the United States for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees from around the world, declaring in a memo Monday she is not convinced the order is lawful.

 

Yates wrote that, as the leader of the Justice Department, she must ensure the department’s position is both “legally defensible” and “consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right.

 

 “At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the Executive Order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the Executive Order is lawful,” Yates wrote. She wrote that “for as long as I am the Acting Attorney General, the Department of Justice will not present arguments in defense of the Executive Order, unless and until I become convinced that it is appropriate to do so.”

 

Yates’s view is perhaps unsurprising; she was second-in-command at the Justice Department under President Obama, held over until a new attorney general can be confirmed. Still, her announcement is remarkable for its defiance. It was not immediately clear who would defend the president’s order in the Justice Department’s place.

 

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote Tuesday on President Trump’s pick for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), whose views align much more closely with the president’s.”

FIFA – Jack Warner The Divisive Politician

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 9, 2015 by sheriffali

[NYT] PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago — The prime minister of this Caribbean republic walked out of a session of Parliament on Friday, angrily chastising a fellow politician and former ally, Jack Warner, who finds himself and his two sons at the center of soccer’s widespread corruption scandal.

 

“Here we are now, a focus of the international world, not for the good and great things but because of the actions of one man,” Kamla Persad-Bissessar, the prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago, admonished Mr. Warner in a confrontation that dominated the television news here Friday night and the front pages of Saturday’s newspapers.

 

A onetime acting prime minister, as well as a former minister of national security and transportation, Mr. Warner, 72, is a polarizing populist, loved and loathed, a man about whom there appears to be no neutral opinion.

 

Four years ago, Mr. Warner lost his lofty position as a vice president of FIFA, soccer’s world governing body, in a bribery scandal. Now he stands accused of racketeering by United States authorities, charged with, among other things, taking a $10 million payment to influence voting on South Africa to host the 2010 World Cup. He has denied any wrongdoing.

 

    Jack Warner Sons Guilty Pleas:

 

Guilty Pleas

 

On July 15, 2013, Daryll Warner secretly pleaded guilty to wire fraud and illegal structuring of financial transactions to evade currency reporting transactions. The plea was related in part to mortgage fraud in the purchase in 2005-6 of a $990,000 condominium in Miami on behalf of himself and two family members.

On Oct. 18, 2013, Daryan Warner, then 45, entered federal court in Brooklyn, also to furtively plead guilty in the soccer investigation. As Mr. Warner began to address the court, he was interrupted by Judge William Kuntz of United States District Court, who offered his usual good-natured instruction to speak clearly.

 

“Take your time,” Judge Kuntz told Mr. Warner, according to an unsealed transcript of the hearing. “Take a drink of water. Slowly and loudly. Channel your inner Lord Vader, not your inner Woody Allen, O.K.? That’s what I say all the time.”
