EPA official who faked CIA ties takes the Fifth
Politico ^ | 10/1/13 | Erica Martinson

Posted on 10/01/2013 1:24:53 PM PDT by Nachum

The former senior EPA adviser who stole $900,000 from taxpayers while posing as a CIA agent pleaded the Fifth on Tuesday morning — shortly before House members expressed outrage upon learning that he’s still due to get his government pension. John C. Beale invoked his right not to incriminate himself when facing questioning from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, just four days after he pleaded guilty to charges that could bring him three years in prison.“Mr. Beale, do you have a statement?” panel Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) asked during the hearing. “Thank you, Mr. Chairman. No I do not,” Beale

Beale has been taking 5th Amendment Down Low lessons from Lois Lerner. And she learned all she knows about it from Trey Gowdy who thoroughly schooled her back in the spring.

FROM STORY:

The hearing then took an even more bizarre turn when investigator Patrick Sullivan noted that Beale eventually filed retirement paperwork, and thus is due his government pension.

Both Republicans and Democrats on the panel called themselves dumbfounded by the news.

“Still month after month the American taxpayers are going to pay” Beale, said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah). He said he wants to see EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy come before the committee to answer for why she didn’t immediately fire Beale after becoming aware that he was receiving unearned bonuses and had stayed on the payroll even after holding a retirement party.

“What does it take to actually get fired in this federal government?” Chaffetz railed.

They maintain secret email accounts. Meanwhile the secret one you THOUGHT you had in fact is completely open —to them.

And they take the 5th. All this from the Most Transparent Administration in US History.

“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for”.

Very nice.

Let's not forget the incestuous relationships, either. Mr. Beale's wife, Nancy Kete, is an executive at the Rockefeller Foundation, and is a big Obama supporter.

This slimeball should have every asset seized. His family should be thrown out onto the street.

The parasite class steals money from hard-working citizens.... It is truly an evil that should not go unpunished.

True justice would also involve some rope..but instead this slimeball will most certainly get his full pension...

Imagine the taxpayers working very hard, having to watch every penny spent, having much of it taken away by the likes of this parasite..

Our Republic is being destroyed by such evil parasites. They are truly an enemy of Liberty.

The day will come when serious blow back will occur -- It is my hope the parasite class is shown absolutely no mercy.

Ex-EPA official pleads guilty to theft; he also had claimed to work for CIA

September 27, 2013

A former high-level official at the Environmental Protection Agency admitted Friday that he stole nearly $900,000 from the government by pretending to work for the CIA in a plea agreement that raised questions about how top agency managers failed to detect the scheme since it began in 1994.

John C. Beale duped a series of supervisors, including top officials of the EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, disappearing from the office and explaining his absences by telling his bosses that he was doing top-secret work for the CIA and its “directorate of operations.”

He lied about contracting malaria (he didn’t) while he served in Vietnam (all his military service was in the United States) to obtain a parking space reserved for the disabled that cost the EPA $8,000 over three years. He took personal trips to Los Angeles for which he charged the government more than $57,000, according to new court filings.

“To our knowledge, prior to [current EPA Administrator] Gina McCarthy expressing her concerns, no one at EPA ever checked to see if Mr. Beale worked for the CIA,” said Assistant Inspector General Patrick Sullivan, who led the investigation that included interviews of 40 people. Only one, an executive assistant, suspected Beale’s story of working for the clandestine service.

Nor did EPA personnel compare Beale’s travel vouchers, which said he was in places such as Boston and Seattle, with hotel receipts for the same dates that showed him in Bakersfield, Calif., where he has family.

With ties like that, the funniest thing is that he probably does have ties to top-level CIA people with a wife at the RF.

But these types of relationships would be informal, so the CIA would be correct in saying that he's not technically working for them.

With his connections and propensity to lie, he probably could care less about much other than grabbing what he can without the tiniest concern over legality or ethics.

The new world order mentality is one of such audacity that it's simply difficult for most people to get their minds around.

Why the need to pretend he’s CIA?

Do you own property? The EPA are as powerful and can make you suffer more than the CIA ever can.

Also shows me there are fewer veterans running things in Washington than ever before. Vets would have plenty of paperwork if one of their people was borrowed by another agency. Would have also seen that that person’s background didn’t pass the smell test for the job.

Somebody is paying him. Even if he’s still on the EPA payroll, he still counts as an EPA employee. If the borrowing agency doesn’t pick up his tab then most vets would at least want the proper forms stating such. Also a contact at the CIA to verify what little they can tell about what he’s doing.

Imagine how many have got away with these scams in the past.

"Beale eventually filed retirement paperwork, and thus is due his government pension."

Umm, no. He's not. Federal legislation enacted in the late 1990s enables the govt. to take that sumbitch's pension away from him. Either somebody is lying, or somebody has made a very sweet deal. Put the EPA administrator under oath, and squeeze. Hard.

The government has already proven on many occasions they feel they have the right to pass Ex Post Facto laws so why on earth are they bitching?

They can pass a law today voiding ANY pension program for any level of crime our representatives choose as a threshold. However, they don’t want to because they would be putting their pension at risk.

Come on folks, we are nothing but cash cows to be milked for the ruling elites.

Hey! It happened in France about 150 years ago so it could happen here. I guess that is why they want our guns NOW before we get a chance. Kathleen Selibus is correct; we are the enemy. They know it and are acting accordingly. We just haven’t accepted it yet. We need to and need to start acting accordingly.

I'm surprised this isn't getting more coverage(or maybe I'm not at that...considering the budget B.S. going on currently...MSM O'buttkissers wouldn't want to touch this gov. clusterfluck with a ten foot pole).

Right now watching the CSPAN 3 1/2 hr. recording of the hearing today online, it's like watching the movie "True Lies" what this assclown was able to get away with, and(more importantly)for how long he got away with it. There are people laughing all around during witness statements...as the incompetence(or corruption)is so entrenched there's nothing seemingly you can do at this point...but laugh at it.

This IS our gov...."working hard for the American pee-pole"...it has become nothing but a mafia run cesspool...with wartime consigliarie lawyers shysters protecting every scam from the puppet masters, as well as their puppets...

...while at the same time preoccupying the sheeples attention span with sports, "entertainment" and other(propaganda)nonsense sedatives.

We are in deep kimchi folks.
