    An aide to New York Mayor Eric Adams accused of 'improper' behavior 'urged staffers to delete texts after the FBI raided her home', a source has claimed. Director of protocol for international affairs Rana Abbasova was suspended from her role after the mayor's lawyers found she had tried to erase the messages, the New York Post reported. Abbasova was put on leave from her $80,651-a-year role after she was found to have 'acted improperly' following an internal probe. Her alleged misconduct is thought to be related to an FBI investigation into whether Adams' campaign conspired with a Brooklyn construction company...

  • EXCLUSIVE: Three MORE legal bombshells loom for Donald Trump 'over the next few weeks', Hunter Biden's 'sugar brother' attorney claims in texts - so does he know something we don't?

    Hunter Biden's lawyer claimed there will be '3 more', in text messages with a right-wing nonprofit about Donald Trump’s arrest. The heated text exchange, between hotshot Hollywood attorney Kevin Morris and a 'researcher' working with the conservative think tank Marco Polo, has raised questions over what the First Son's legal team know about prosecutors' plans against the former President. The news comes as Morris sued Marco Polo and its founder, former Trump White House staffer Garrett Ziegler, in a Los Angeles court last week for alleged harassment, invasion of privacy and 'criminal impersonation' over the nonprofit's investigation into Hunter's abandoned...
  • CNN’s Don Lemon accused of extensive misogyny, sending threatening texts to female colleague: report

    Embattled CNN host Don Lemon landed in hot water earlier this year for making a disparaging comment about women, but it wasn't the first time he's acted out in the workplace, according to a new report. A bombshell report in Variety Wednesday made scandalous allegations about the anchor’s past, such as sending threatening text messages to a colleague and repeatedly exhibiting misogynistic and "diva-like" behavior, but CNN has downplayed the claims as "patently false anecdotes." In 2008, Lemon co-anchored weekend CNN show "Live From" alongside Kyra Phillips, where he had what Variety called "concerning" antipathy with his female colleague. "For...

    I was having a 4 way phone text conversation with my father, sister and brother. We were mostly talking about Biden's gaffes from a speech he made earlier in the day. We also mentioned other things that he said or did, from past months and years. Suddenly, my father informed us that a person reached out to him and asked if he wanted to "mute" the conversation. He didn't say who they were or why he was offering his "muting" services. Has anyone else had anything like this. We are being spied on, and they don't care that we know...

    Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) said Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 riot has a recently received a large volume of text messages, emails, and radio communication sent by Secret Service agents during the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Earlier this summer, the inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security sent a letter to Congress informing them that Secret Service text messages sent by agents on and before January 6 had been erased.

    The further this story develops, the more suspicious the actions of DHS’s own inspector general get. The IG is supposed to be the “internal affairs” wing of a federal agency, charged with investigating possible malfeasance by department personnel — like, say, the mysterious deletion of text messages before and during the attack on the Capitol despite multiple warnings that those records should be preserved.The IG investigating the Secret Service’s missing text messages is Joseph Cuffari, who serves under Biden but was appointed by Trump. Last week news broke that his office knew back in February that the Secret Service had...

    Two leading House Democrats are requesting a government watchdog step away from an investigation into deleted text messages sent by the Secret Service around the time of the U.S. Capitol attack. Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of House Homeland Security Committee, and New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney, chair of the House Oversight Committee, sent the request Tuesday to the Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency. In their letter, Thompson and Maloney wrote they have "grave concerns" about Joseph Cuffari, the Department of Homeland Security's inspector general -- including what they said was his failure to promptly notify Congress...

    The Secret Service may have violated federal records laws by failing to preserve data - including information related to the Jan. 6 Capitol attack - after it had been requested by investigators, the House committee investigating the riot said Wednesday. The condemnation came after the panel subpoenaed the agency following an allegation from the inspector general at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which oversees the Secret Service, that it had “erased” the texts during a device replacement program. “We have concerns about a system migration that we have been told resulted in the erasure of Secret Service cell phone...

    WASHINGTON - The Secret Service has no new text messages related to the Jan. 6 attack to hand over to the special House committee investigating the Capitol riot, a source familiar with the matter told NBC News on Tuesday. The news comes in the wake of an inspector general informing the committee that the Secret Service had deleted text messages from Jan. 5 and 6, 2021. The committee issued a subpoena for those records last week. The Secret Service plans to do a “forensic examination” of agents’ phones identified in the inspector general’s report, the source said, but added that...

    Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger on Sunday said it would be "quite crazy" if the Secret Service did indeed delete text messages related to the riot at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. During an interview on the CBS News program "Face the Nation," the Illinois Republican - who along with Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming are the only GOP members of House committee probing the riot - told host Margaret Brennan that the full details of the situation have not yet been uncovered. "We're going to know more Tuesday," he said, adding that the panel has issued a subpoena...

    First lady Jill and President Joe Biden argue over text messages to escape earshot of the Secret Service, Mrs. Biden told Harper’s Bazaar’s June/July issue. The couple has termed their arguments over text as “fexting” in which they regularly spend time “hashing out their occasional spats over text” to “avoid fighting in front of the Secret Service,” the first lady revealed.
  • Never Relent – Why Did The DOJ Release SSCI Vice-Chairman Mark Warner’s Text Messages on February 9, 2018?…

    07/10/2020 10:10:06 PM PDT · by bitt · 23 replies
    Everything is disconnected until somebody connects it. On February 9, 2018, the DOJ released a batch of captured text messages between Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and the lawyer for Christopher Steele, Adam Waldman. At the time the texts were released the media narrative surrounded the top-line story that Senator Warner was having back channel discussions to communicate with the author of the now famous Trump dossier, Chris Steele. However, no-one seemed to wonder why these messages were captured, and even more curiously why they were released. Immediately following the release, SSCI member Marco Rubio, the current acting chairman...

    The establishment media has reported on Hunter Biden’s $4.8 million received in payments from a Chinese energy company, but not the alleged payout mechanism by which the Biden family likely profited from peddling influence. “I hope you all can do what I did and pay for everything for this entire family for 30 years,” Hunter texted his daughter, Naomi, in 2019, the New York Post reported in 2021. “It’s really hard. But don’t worry, unlike Pop [Joe], I won’t make you give me half your salary,” the text string continued as reported.

    Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was mocked by conservatives Monday evening after a hearing of the United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack produced text messages from former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows that showed numerous people close to then-President Donald Trump, including his son, were surprised by the Capitol riot and reached out to him to issue a statement against it — which he then did. The panel voted to recommend that the full House vote to hold Meadows in contempt of Congress and refer him for prosecution to the Department of Justice, even though...

    The Chicago Tribune has obtained many of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) text messages that reveal combative interactions with aldermen and city workers while shedding light on how the Democrat mayor runs the crime-ridden Windy City. The outlet obtained upwards of two and a half years of the mayor’s text messages through Freedom of Information Act requests. “Her staff failed to comply… until the state attorney general admonished them and the Tribune threatened a lawsuit,” the outlet reports. The admonishment and lawsuit threat led to Lightfoot’s office producing hundreds of pages of documents, including the mayor’s text messages.

    A Florida police officer sent explicit text messages to a 15-year-old boy and tried to entice him to a nude beach, federal prosecutors said. Juan Antonio Garcia, a 30-year-old cop for the Sewall’s Point Police Department, appeared Friday in Fort Pierce federal court after allegedly sending the explicit texts discovered by the teen’s father in late November, according to the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida. A federal criminal complaint claims Garcia, of Stuart, also asked the boy to accompany him to a nude beach in Florida’s St. Lucie County and to perform sexual acts. “It is...

    The mother of missing Long Island woman Gabby Petito said her daughter seemed “OK” before she vanished — though she hinted that there could’ve been trouble brewing. Petito, 22, last spoke to her mom over FaceTime around Aug. 25 while on a tour of national parks out west in a converted van with her beau, Brian Laundrie. “She seemed OK to me at the time, other than I don’t know where the relationship was going with the boyfriend,” her mother, Nichole Schmidt, told news station KSL-TV.
