Now Gloria Allred enters the Petraeus scandal: Jill Kelley's twin sister hires celebrity attorney
Daily Mail ^ | November 20, 2012

Posted on 11/20/2012 4:51:21 AM PST by maggief

A piece of the sordid Petraeus puzzle has lawyered up, hiring famed celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, it has been revealed.

Natalie Khawam has reportedly enlisted Allred's help, more than a week after her involvement in the cheating scandal that has led to his downfall of CIA Director David Petraeus.

Allred and Khawam are holding a press conference on Tuesday morning.

Khawam is the twin sister of Jill Kelley, the Florida socialite who blew the lid off the secret relationship between Petraeus and his biographer, Paula Broadwell, after Broadwell sent Kelley threatening emails.

The twins' brother, David Khawam, confirmed to ABC News that his sister had hired Allred.

Like dogs who returning to their own vomit.

Sorry, I'm at the saturation point with all this filth and gratuitous smut!

Ms. Alred needs a glass bottom boat... so she can row through the sewers! The people who think she is worth hearing are even more repulsive than she is!

How does a nation cultivate such people with such vulgar interests!

Natalie Khawam business partner builds top-secret weapons

A few months after Jill Kelley’s first complaint to the FBI set in motion a scandal that would take down a pair of top U.S. military and intelligence officers, Kelley’s identical twin sister, Natalie Khawam, founded a corporation in Florida called Fullproof LLC with three business partners.

Incorporation documents filed with the state reveal little about the company’s purpose, but Christopher T. Marks, a Tampa-based lawyer and one of the co-founders of FullProof, told the Tampa Bay Times that the company aimed to “protect intellectual property while they pursued a patent.”

This patent work involves a well-established physicist at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, Dr. Clifford Krowne, who is listed as a managing member of FullProof LLC’s four-person team.

Krowne is a highly regarded expert on Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) technology, one of the military’s most controversial and secretive research programs. His esteemed research background seems at odds with the tawdry details of the Petraeus sex scandal.

Fullproof, LLC has a location in Tampa, FL. Active officers include Natalie Khawam, Clifford Krowne, Lisa Krowne and Christopher T Marks. Fullproof, LLC filed as a Florida Limited Liability on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 in the state of Florida and is currently active.

IOW Gloria Allred pursued this Kardashian wannabee and found a way to insert herself into the biggest story of the year! Now all we’ll hear is “sexism,” lies and obfuscations. We’ll never find out what really happened in Benghazi; in fact, her antics will further protect the White House from any further scrutiny on the Benghazi murders!

Does anybody know if there’s a Scientology connection here?

“Jill” Kelley seems to have been close to the Mayor of Tampa, who has appeared at some events that are thought to be Scientology fronts. The headquarters for Scientology is at Tampa St Pete, and I recall reading some time ago that they wanted to get onto the base (MacDill) as an organization. There may be no connection at all, but they’re certainly all nutty enough to be involved with this group.

I'll go you one better. I wouldn't be surprised if Allred payed Natalie Khawam for the right to represent her.

I seem to recall Allred also being hired recently for something else that made news. For the life of me I can’t seem to push away the memory cobwebs that are keeping me from remembering what it was about.

Kelley is being represented by one of Washington’s most prominent trial lawyers, Abbe Lowell, a family friend who has represented former U.S. Senator John Edwards and disgraced Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

Kelley also has enlisted Judy Smith, a well-known crisis PR manager who is the model for the ultra-effective fixer and spin doctor Olivia Pope in the ABC TV drama “Scandal.”

I think this is about Allred and Khawam using the situation to promote themselves rather than helping Jill Kelley.

Twin sister to a self-promoting, living over her means socialite likely means she’s similar and will do whatever is needed to advance herself, even if it means walking over her sister’s quickly decaying situation.

I hope the media sees this for what it is and ridicules them all, including the General. I have no sympathy for Petraeus as he’s a scumbag who lied to his wife and family for a quicky with a skank.

It must all be pro bono work, it is public knowledge that she’s tapped out. Or should we suspicion someone in the Administration is funding her now, probably with our tax money.

Hummmm, is Dr. Krowne an employee of the US government? If so I don’t think he can patent his work, unless it’s totally outside the purview of his work for the government. For instance he could patent a new soft drink, as it is doubtful that he is working on such for the government, but EMP is not something that the general public could buy or even knows about.

Exactly. I've got a sneaky suspicion that all the take downs of our high ranking officers is so the admin can put in their own for the upcoming WWIII or CWII. Take your pick, but there's going to be some sort of war or conflict and our enemies will already be in key positions.

I am beginning to think that there is a whole lot more to the story of the Khawam sisters.....Natalie had HUGE sums of money given to her and it is all gone? Filed for bankruptcy yet there is not a good track record of hundred’s of thousands of dollars? Maybe that is the deal. Get money, send it somewhere and then file for bankruptcy. Natalie also has strong connections with JOHN KERRY.

Grayson Wolfe (Natalie's ex) is head of the import-export bank in Iraq.

Kerry's role is likely that he wants to take him down (Wolfe is a Bushie) and Allred's role is that she wants Wolfe to give Natalie a fat settlement.

Throw in the fact that Holly Petraeus is an employee of the Dodd-Frank CFPB and you will see that this is not a simple case of an affair, but a high level struggle in International Finance and politics.
