    As claims of election voter fraud continue, DOJ’s Richard Pilger has reportedly quit his role as Head of Election Crimes. On November 9th, emails from Pilger were released that outlined plans to resign from his role at the US Department of Justice. “Having familiarised myself with the new policy and its ramification, I must regretfully resign from my role as director of election crimes branch,” he wrote in the email, which was obtained by The New York Times and shared on social media after. **SNIP** As Head of Election Crimes in the DOJ, his role consists of supervising all federal...

    Mr. Barr’s authorization prompted the Justice Department official who oversees investigations of voter fraud, Richard Pilger, to step down from the post within hours, according to an email Mr. Pilger sent to colleagues that was obtained by The New York Times. […] Mr. Barr said he had authorized “specific instances” of investigative steps in some cases. But he made clear in a carefully worded memo that prosecutors had the authority to investigate only “substantial allegations” of irregularities, warning that “specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.” Mr. Barr’s directive ignored the Justice...

    Richard Pilger, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) Director of the Election Crimes Branch, has resigned following Attorney General William Barr's authorization earlier today for federal prosecutors to investigate allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Pilger reportedly tendered his resignation within hours of Barr's green-lighting of investigations into allegations of fraud that have yet to be substantiated, The New York Times reported. The re-election campaign of Republican President Donald Trump and various Republican political leaders on the federal and state level have alleged that fraudulent ballots swung the contentious presidential race into the favor of Trump's opponent,...

    “Not even a smidgen of corruption.” That phrase was uttered by Barack Obama, following revelations about the IRS targeting of conservative groups, and then again following disclosures about Hillary Clinton and her numerous schemes to skirt U.S. State Department rules and federal subpoenas. Obama’s words could soon prove to be among the most infamous in U.S. presidential history -- for their utter dishonesty.  Joe Biden, who launched his 2020 presidential campaign in April, 2019, proclaimed that there was “not one single whisper of scandal" during the Obama/Biden administration. Wow. These guys were made for each other.With what is currently being...

    I've been writing about "Obama the bad guy" for many years. I was the first to name former President Barack Obama the head of the Obama crime family. I coined the phrase "Obamagate" to describe his reign of crimes against candidate and then President Donald J. Trump. Obama's public persona was always a scam. I knew the real Obama -- way before anyone else caught on. Take the Slate magazine column published days ago by a liberal hack and Obama apologist. He sounded the usual liberal talking points: There is no Obamagate. There is no scandal. It's a conservative conspiracy....

    An IRS staffer who authorities say gave former Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti financial information about former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty Wednesday to gaining and distributing that information illegally. John C. Fry had worked as an investigative analyst with the IRS Criminal Investigation Division when he in 2018 downloaded five Suspicious Activity Reports connected to Cohen and his company, according to NBC News. The news outlet reported that Fry on Wednesday admitted to emailing Avenatti screenshots of the reports. He pleaded guilty to unauthorized disclosure of suspicious activity reports. "Fry was given access to sensitive and powerful government...

    Scandals in politics have been motivated by personal gain, greed, love of power, lust, or simply a conviction that one's political agenda is so good it justifies bending the law. This ungodly behavior was observed by Machiavelli in The Prince (1513), who recorded the evil tactics of Cesare Borgia: "the ends justifies the means." In 1798, Yale President Timothy Dwight described how the Jacobins acted this way during the French Revolution: "Adultery, assassination, poisoning, and other crimes of the like infernal nature, were taught as lawful ... provided the end was good." Saul Alinsky advocated this in his nefarious Rules...

    News we might have missed. Last week Catherine Engelbrecht announced a historic legal victory in her decade long battle against the IRS for targeting her group, True The Vote, as part of the Obama administration’s weaponization program against political opposition. U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton issued a stunning ruling (full pdf below) in favor of True the Vote, and penalized the IRS. Judge Walton forced the IRS to pay maximum attorney’s fees due to discrimination against the conservative organization that stemmed from the Lois Lerner scandal. The financial award is likely to exceed $2 million.

    VIDEO Robert Mueller could not say that President Donald Trump did not obstruct justice despite finding no evidence showing that he obstructed justice over a crime that DID NOT HAPPEN, namely Trump-Russia collusion. However, as you will see here, we do have proof that Robert Mueller OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE which is obvious by him disingenuously acting stupid in 2013 when answering questions from Congressman Jim Jordan about the IRS scandal involving their denial of tax exemptions for Tea Party affiliated groups.

    You might remember back in May 2018 when sketchy porn lawyer Michael Avenetti was releasing U.S. Treasury notifications on Michael Cohen received from an unknown source within the Treasury Department. You might also remember when New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow wrote a sympathetic article after talking to the leaking treasury official. As a result the Treasury Inspector General began an investigation. John C. Fry, 54, was an intelligence analyst with the IRS’s law enforcement arm in San Francisco. According to the North California U.S. Attorney’s Office (full pdf below) after searching for IRS activity reports related to Michael Cohen, Mr. Fry...

    The federal government in recent days has been issuing settlement checks to 100 right-of-center groups wrongfully targeted for their political beliefs under the Obama administration’s Internal Revenue Service, according to an attorney for the firm that represented plaintiffs in NorCal v. United States. Most of the claimants will each receive a check for approximately $14,000. Five conservative groups that were integrally involved in the lawsuit get a bonus payment of $10,000 each. About $2 million of the settlement goes to cover the legal costs of five long years of litigation. IRS attorneys attempted delay after delay, objection after objection, trying...

    White House Press Secretary Jay Carney is sweating it out under the harsh lights of the White House briefing room these days, revising stories and spinning away suspicious facts in what is becoming an almost comical daily exercise in scandal avoidance. “Are you going to ask me about Myanmar?” Carney joked Monday as yet another White House reporter teed up a question about one of the various scandals swirling about the administration. The leader of Myanmar was to meet with President Obama later in the day. Carney Monday was escorted by reporters down several nightmarish paths. The most ghastly of...

    A judge late Wednesday signed off on the settlement between the IRS and hundreds of tea party groups, closing out the last major legal battle over what all sides now agree was unwarranted and illegal targeting for political purposes. The IRS agreed to pay $3.5 million to groups that were wronged by the intrusive inspections, and insists it’s made changes so that political targeting can’t occur in the future. A few issues are still being fought over in the courts — including whether former IRS senior executive Lois G. Lerner will be allowed to forever shield her deposition explaining her...

    The Treasury Department’s Office of Intelligence and Analysis has been illegally rifling through and filing away the private financial records of US citizens, Treasury employees alleged. “This is such an invasion of privacy,” said one official. The intelligence division at the Treasury Department has repeatedly and systematically violated domestic surveillance laws by snooping on the private financial records of US citizens and companies, according to government sources. Over the past year, at least a dozen employees in another branch of the Treasury Department, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, have warned officials and Congress that US citizens’ and residents’ banking and...
