U.S. Ambassador To Belgium Howard Gutman, who was a top Obama campaign bundler, reportedly solicited prostitutes, including minors.
Gutman was also a Palin-basher who challenged her parenting skills.
The New York Post reported, via Weasel Zippers:
A State Department whistleblower has accused high-ranking staff of a massive coverup including keeping a lid on findings that members of then-Secretary Hillary Clintons security detail and the Belgian ambassador solicited prostitutes.
A chief investigator for the agencys inspector general wrote a memo outlining eight cases that were derailed by senior officials, including one instance of interference by Clintons chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.
Any mention of the cases was removed from an IG report about problems within the Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS), which provides protection and investigates crimes involving any State Department workers overseas.
Its a coverup, declared Cary Schulman, a lawyer representing the whistleblower, former State Department IG senior investigator Aurelia Fedenisn.The whole agency is impaired.
Undue influence . . . is coming from political appointees. Its coming from above the criminal- investigation unit, added Schulman, whose client provided the document with the revelations.
Some of the revelations were first reported by CBS News.
Among the bombshell findings:
* A DS agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors.
The agent began his investigation and had determined that the ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children, says the memo.
Hillary Clinton loyalists suspected of criminal cover-ups for diplomats.
Perhaps the Weiner should consider becoming a US Ambassador...
“A distinction should be made between traditional anti-Semitism, which should be condemned, and Muslim hatred for Jews, which stems from the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.”
There is so much evil in our leadership. We are lead directly by demons.
Does not sound good.
He’s got a great democrat resume enhancer now....
Gutman has long been active in Democratic politics, working on policy issues, speech writing, constituency work, legal representation, and media. He also has helped raise money for Democratic presidential, gubernatorial, and congressional candidates, including Al Gores presidential campaign in 2000. Gutman served on the legal team representing Gore in the Supreme Court case Bush v. Gore.
According to OpenSecrets.org, in 2008, Gutman was part of the Obama National Finance Committee and later a trustee on the Presidential Inauguration Committee. Gutman and his wife, Michelle Loewinger, have contributed at least $86,150 to Democratic candidates, parties and committees since 1989. Gutman contributed the legal maximum of $2300 to Bill Clintons presidential bid. Both he and his wife contributed the legal maximum of $4600 a piece to Obamas presidential run. Gutman bundled at least half a million for Obamas campaign committee and another $275,000 for his inauguration.
Every day... every stinking day since Obama was in office there has been something. It’s like we can’t rest or let our guard down, because the MSM hasn’t done their job.
NOw instead of investigative reporters we get whistleblowers who go to extremes to get the story out, and the story is quickly covered up.
Let’s face it...all of this was surpressed until after the election. These bast*rds got back in office by reducing the Tea Partiers and other conservative groups infuence.
Hillary Clinton knew about Benghazi, before during and after and has covered up the truth... She knows about this scandal also, WHICH WOULD BE FRONT PAGE NEWS FOR WEEKS TO COME IF THERE WERE NO OTHER SCANDALS TO REPORT.
well if oabma and his thugs get their way after this spying crap then he’ll be passing laws to make it legal to have sex with little children
Yes, Howie Carr interrupted his show when he got the breaking news that they were little boys he was trolling for.
They seem to leave the embassy personnel in Beirut who sexually attacked local people hired as security
Remember right after Bengazi when we were told those at the station recognized their attackers?
Is he still the Ambassador to Belgium, or has he been recalled?
Not really, but wondering if we'll ever see the bottom of this stinking barrel we call our government.
I did not have sex with that
woman child ....
Whoa! I hadn’t heard that. Little boys? I thought he might be gay.
You know, that’s a lovely posting for Gutman, considering the pedophile sex rings that Belgium has been plagued with, and the completely inept investigations into pedophile and kidnapping - many allege the ineptness was because of corrupt and compromised officials.
Cruising the parks sounds as though he likes boys better than girls.
It is a well known fact in Europe that paedophilia is one of Belgium’s most important industries, alongside overpriced lager and chocolate...
Hope this story gets legs especially the cover-up for this scumbag.
Somewhere Senator Menendez is wondering how he can become an Ambassador too..the pond scum always comes from the left, every last one of them
So is Islam.
I once got lost driving through the Muslim quarter there in 1995. It was spooky even then.
Swirling around thighness since she was born is a portal to and from hell that attracts every maggot that picks up her scent.
He has those red framed funky Elton John/Barney Frank looking glasses....I would put money on he is a rump ranger.
Now, now. The Left calls prostitutes and porn stars “sex workers”, you know, part of “Workers of the world unite!” They need a union so they can avoid being exploited by their employers, doncha know,
So the ambassador used youngish sex workers. To call them “underage” is “ageist”, doncha know. They’re just sex workers, and they deserve to make a living like anybody else.
If people like the ambassador didn’t hire them, they might starve.
Harassing sex workers and their clients is sexist, ageist, and, well, there must be some other pc “ist” in there that I musta forgot.
(hoping I don’t need a /sarc tag)
So I wonder what the DUmp talks about these days? I’m tempted to go look...
So “traditional” Muslim hatred for Jews is understandable and not antisemitism?
According to Howard Gutman.
U.S. Ambassador To Belgium Howard Gutman — the truly ugly American.
Don’t know if its relevant, but some of the prostitutes involved in the Carlton Hotel (Dominique-Kahn) scandal were from Belgium.
Maybe Hillary had tutorials on how to cover up sex crimes and allegations—she has more experience in that field than just about anyone else in the US. Perfect person to run the State Department.
Just yesterday, Doug posted a story titled Another day, another Obama Administration scandal. Today is no different.
Via Guy Benson at Townhall:
Did the State Department keep a known (or at least heavily suspected) pedophile on the job, try to block the investigation, then water down the final report? State denies any undue influence on internal probes, and the ambassador is decrying the allegations smears. Who is he? The New York Post unearths a name with deep financial ties to President Obama and Democrats:
A DS agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors. The ambassadors protective detail and the embassys surveillance detection team . . . were well aware of the behavior. Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy ordered the investigation ceased, and the ambassador remains in place, according to the memo. Gutman was a big Democratic donor before taking the post, having raised $500,000 for President Obamas 2008 campaign and helping finance his inaugural.
Why did Kennedy order the investigation ceased? The Post story also notes that Clintons Secretary of State Cheryl Mills you remember her, too, right? personally involved herself in a separate investigation, effectively shutting it down.
Charming behavior from Hillarys State Department, no? They kept a man in place, representing our country while knowing, or at the least, heavily suspecting that he was a child predator. Its disgusting.
Its also highly ironic (and a bit disturbing) considering Ambassador Gutmans comments about Governor Palin, back in 2008:
On the Laura Ingraham Radio show, Friday, attorney Howard Gutman an original member of the national finance committee for Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill. very directly criticized the parenting of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin
Gutman said the issue wasnt one of gender, but one of parenting - regardless of the gender of the parent.
This has nothing to do with gender, whether Todd Palin was the nominee or Sarah Palin was the nominee, Gutman said. If my daughter had just come home at 17 years old and said, Mom, Dad, Im pregnant, we have a family problem, I wouldnt say, You know what were going to do? Were going to take this private family problem and you know what Im going to do? Im going to go on the international stage and broadcast this to the world.
Gutman continued, this wasnt a working mother issue, this was a parent issue The proper attack is not that a woman shouldnt run for vice president with five kids, its that a parent, when they have a family in need, a Downs baby who needs them mother or father.
So you are judging her parenting skills, Ingraham said. Youre saying you dont think shes a good parent for doing this job.
Im saying the proper criticism is not that its a woman or man it doesnt matter whether its Todd or Sarah, Gutman said. Think of how many politicians have said its not the right time in my familys life for me to run.
Fast-forward to 2013 and this arbiter of good parenting is most likely a pervert and a pedophile. Gutmans suspected behavior and the State Department shutting down the investigation into it, is really just par for the course with the Obama administration. In 2008, Team Hope and Change sold itself to the American people as defenders of the Constitution and the champions of civil liberties, who possessed the moral core to to build new bridges across the globe.
During a piece of Obama theater during the 08 campaign, he told Europe:
Now is the time to build new bridges across the globe as strong as the one that bound us across the Atlantic. Now is the time to join together, through constant cooperation, strong institutions, shared sacrifice, and a global commitment to progress, to meet the challenges of the 21st century. It was this spirit that led airlift planes to appear in the sky above our heads, and people to assemble where we stand today. And this is the moment when our nations and all nations must summon that spirit anew.
What a a bunch of bull. He was lying to them the same way he lied to Americans. It was all for show. If he cared at all about building bridges around the world, he wouldnt have allowed a suspected deviant like Gutman to remain stationed at one of those strong institutions, and there would have been a real investigation into this mans activities.
This is your representation in Belgium, America.
he has a wife
oh, nevermind, so does Weiner
It's sharia compliant!
MoosSlime is az mooseSlime does!
MuuhhHamhead (Pigs be inseminating him) liked em young!
We have three ambassadors in Brussels, one to Belgium, one to NATO, one to the EU. About 6 weeks ago there was a story that an ambassador in Brussels had spent 700k taxpayer money on redoing the garden at his residence. It was the same time Hillary was whining that State didn’t have enough $ for security. That story died. Anybody know if this is the same guy?
If that’s the case...how long until the media tells us that this has nothing to do with being gay?
Yeah. But I need confirmation. I haven’t seen anything that confirms the guy was picking up little boys.
That was the ambassador to NATO. Breitbart had the story in April. I’d link it but I’m on my iPad and it’s a PITA to do it (plus I’m feeling lazy lol).
No, that's not the case. This is Alinskyite politics -- the constant pounding, the constant alarms.
It's beating people into psychological submission, trying to fatigue their sense of outrage and hebetate their reactions to deliberate offenses, ultimately to force them to give up hope. That's the condition Soviet KGB psych experts called the desired condition to induce in an enemy society: novolya, "will-lessness". It's the psychological equivalent of a TKO in the ring.
Maybe it's just me. I dunno.
Is that quote from Gutman?
No wonder he got so far in this administration.
That and money. I’ve always heard money talks and....
That’s most of our government—a bunch of whores.
P. J. O’Rourke knew it.
Watching this guy Jimmy Fallon tonight...He has Chris Christie as a walk on....
Excuse me...this guy comes across as a chipmunk...Hey...are you listening Ann Coulter? The guy whom you say is the most incredible leader/politician of the 21st century looks like a cartoon character....
Then we have Hillary launching her Twitter Account... oblivious to the scandals around her....as if nothing involving her is going on...
Our country is in trouble, Folks...
Wiki had some info on this guy.
Seems he defended one of Bill Ayers’ lackeys
.....Gutman also once represented Susan Rosenberg, a former member of the Weather Underground accused, but never indicted or convicted, in the 1981 Brinks robbery in post-conviction, constitutional litigation. Gutman also provided representation to Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada, a former Bolivian president, and José Carlos Sánchez Berzain, a defense minister, who were sued in American courts by Bolivians following an attempted coup in Bolivia.
interesting info on the Weather Underground
Thanks, piasa! Reminds me that I recently saw a similar scandal associated with one of the people involved in organizing Bill Clinton’s flights abroad.
