Antifa domestic terrorists, incl. professors, want an end to USA

We learned only days ago that more than a year ago, in a secret (“confidential”) DHS/FBI joint report in April 2016, the Obama administration already classified Antifa as “domestic terrorists” but didn’t bother to inform the American people about it.

Why these domestic terrorists were allowed — and continue to be allowed — to “protest” terrorize the right Trump supporters is a question that should be asked of law enforcement, including the police of Washington, D.C., where Antifa Black Bloc terrorists were allowed to riot and assault on the nights before and after Trump’s presidential inauguration.

Antifa are not just terrorists, they want nothing less than the total annihilation of America.

At the “counter Marxism” rally in Berkeley, CA, on August 24, 2017, in which an estimated 4,000 “counter-protesters” overwhelmed and bullied a handful of Trump supporters, masked black-clad Antifa not only assaulted people, they made evident their antipathy to the very existence of the United States, chanting:

“No Trump, no wall, no U.S.A.!”

By the way, an anonymous poster on the message board 8chan claims to have discovered the “full list” of Antifa members.

Note: If 8chan deleted the thread, it is archived here and here. The full list of Antifa members is here.

Many on the list are teachers, college professors, and other professionals. Here’s a sample — of Antifa members whose last names begin with the letter M:

  • Fannie Madden-Grider, Instructor of Media Writing, Morehead State University.
  • Neal Madnick, history teacher, Sanford H Calhoun High School, Merrick, NY.
  • Jane Maestro, manager, New Hope Charities, West Palm Beach, FL.
  • F. Rachel Magdalene, visiting scholar, United Theological Seminary, Dayton, OH.
  • Dominique Malaquais, Senior Researcher in Political Science, Centre National de la Recherche (National Science Research Center), Paris.
  • Frankie Diane Mallis, Adjunct Professor of English. Arcadia University, Glenside, PA.
  • Christine Mallory, Vice President of Finance at AllClear ID, Austin, Texas.
  • Aaron Managhan, Office Assistant, South Puget Sound Community College.
  • Carl Manaster, bioinformatics (computer) programmer, ActivX Biosciences, Inc., San Diego, CA.
  • Victor Manfredi, Visiting Researcher in African Studies at Boston University.
  • Michael Mangino, taught Biology at Harper College, Palatine, IL.
  • Shilpa Mankikar, writer/director/producer; finalist at the 2016 Sundance Screenwriters Lab.
  • Reeser Manley, author; Assistant Professor of Horticulture, University of Maine.
  • Catherine Mann, USA Today bestselling author.
  • Jenny Mannion, author and “intuitive healer”.

Obama administration’s DHS/FBI identified Antifa as domestic terrorists in April 2016

And yet, this important and correct identification was not communicated to the American people, while the MSM and Democrats continue to champion Antifa as brave opponents of “white supremacists,” and police of cities like Berkeley where Antifa clashed with the Right in public rallies treated Trump supporters as the perpetrators of violence.

Josh Meyer reports for Politico, Sept. 1, 2017, that as early as April 2016, well before the election and subsequent presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, a confidential 2016 joint intelligence assessment by the Obama administration’s DHS and the FBI had classified radical Left anarchists who call themselves Antifa as “domestic terrorists”.

The April 2016 DHS/FBI joint report, Baseline Comparison of US and Foreign Anarchist Extremist Movements, identified Antifa as perpetrators of attacks on police, government, symbols of capitalism, racism, “social injustice and fascism”. After Donald Trump was elected President last November, Antifa activists locked onto another target — Trump supporters, especially white nationalists (labeled “white supremacists” by Antifa and the complicit MSM), and Confederate symbols and monuments.

An unnamed “senior state law enforcement official” said, “A whole bunch of them [Antifa]” have been deemed dangerous enough to be placed on U.S. terrorism watch lists.

By the spring of 2016, Antifa groups had become so aggressive, including making armed attacks on individuals and small groups of perceived enemies, that federal officials launched a global investigation with the help of the U.S. intelligence community so as to determine whether Antifa might start committing terrorist bombings at the Republican and Democratic conventions that summer, like their foreign counterparts in Greece, Italy and Mexico.

Some Antifa terrorists have gone overseas to train and fight with fellow anarchist organizations, including two Turkey-based groups fighting the Islamic State.

Based on their classification of Antifa as “domestic terrorists,” DHS/FBI have been warning state and local officials since early 2016 that leftist extremists had become increasingly confrontational and dangerous.

In fact, a DHS assessment in August 2017 precisely warned of a potential for unprecedented violence at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, VA, where Democrat mayor Mike Signer is alleged to have ordered the police to stand down.

See “Signs of Charlottesville white supremacist rally being a false flag” and “Remarkable resemblance of mothers of Charlottesville and Sandy Hook victims

In interviews with Politico, law enforcement authorities blamed Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric and policies — first as a candidate and then as president — for helping to to create a situation that has escalated so quickly and extensively that they do not have a handle on it.

An unnamed “senior law enforcement official tracking domestic extremists in a state that has become a front line in clashes between the groups” said:

“It was in that period [as the Trump campaign emerged] that we really became aware of them. These antifa guys were showing up with weapons, shields and bike helmets and just beating the shit out of people.… They’re using Molotov cocktails, they’re starting fires, they’re throwing bombs and smashing windows.”

According to the confidential documents and interviews obtained by Politico, almost immediately, the right-wing targets of Antifa began fighting back, bringing weapons and launching unprovoked attacks of their own. The extremists on both sides have been using the confrontations, especially since Charlottesville, to recruit unprecedented numbers of new members, raise money and threaten more confrontations. The unnamed “senior law enforcement official” said:

“Everybody is wondering, ‘What are we gonna do? How are we gonna deal with this?’. Every time they have one of these protests where both sides are bringing guns, there are sphincters tightening in my world. Emotions get high, and fingers get twitchy on the trigger.”

Brian Levin, a former New York City police officer who has been monitoring domestic militants for 31 years, now at the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, said:

“Both the racists and a segment of violent antifa counter-protestors are amped for battle in an escalating arms race, where police departments are outmaneuvered, resulting in increasingly violent dangerous confrontations. It’s an orchestrated dance. The rallies spill over into social media and then even more people show up at the next rally primed for violent confrontation.”

This is how the April 2016 DHS-FBI joint report as well as other federal documents and interviews, describe Antifa (Anti-Fascist Action Network):

  • Antifa evolved out of leftist anti-government anarchist groups like Black Bloc, who have instigated violence at events like the 1999 Seattle World Trde Organization.
  • They dress in black and conceal their faces with masks and bandanas.

  • They claim to have no leader and no hierarchy, but DHS-FBI believe they are organized via decentralized networks of cells that coordinate with each other. Often, they spend weeks planning for violence at upcoming events.
  • Dozens of armed Antifa groups have emerged, including Redneck Revolt, Red Guards, and By Any Means Necessary (BAMN) — a group that claims as a member none other than Berkeley’s mayor Jesse Arreguin.
  • One report from New Jersey authorities said self-described Antifa groups have been established in cities including New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and San Francisco.

At the same time, DHS-FBI say there are gaps in their knowledge and understanding of Antifa, admitting that they have only “medium confidence” in their assessments:

  • A “senior New Jersey law enforcement official” following Antifa said: “There’s a lot more we don’t know about these groups than what we do know about them.”
  • Significant “intelligence gaps” include an inability to penetrate Antifa groups’ “diffuse and decentralized organizational structure,” which makes it difficult for law enforcement to identify violent groups and individuals.
  • Authorities also “lack information to identify the travel patterns linking U.S. and foreign anarchist extremists”.
  • A reason for the federal government’s “intelligence gaps” is because many of Antifa’s activities, such as their training camps, meetings and online communications, “are not within the purview of FBI and DHS collection” due to civil liberties and privacy protections.

DHS/FBI should really look into Antifa’s association with international financier terrorist George Soros:

FBI claims lack of public interest as reason for not releasing files on Hillary Clinton

The fix is in.

Stephen Dinan reports for The Washington Times, Aug. 29, 2017, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) rejected a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to release the Bureau’s files on Hillary Clinton.

Incredibly, the FBI cited the American public’s lack of interest in Hillary Clinton as the reason for turning down the FOIA request.

Attorney Ty Clevenger has been trying to get Hillary and her personal lawyers disbarred for their handling of her official emails during her time as secretary of state. Clevenger has been met with resistance among lawyers, and now his request for information from the FBI’s files has been shot down.

FBI records management section chief David M. Hardy told Clevenger in a letter on August 28, 2017:

“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject. It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.”

The FBI says it will only release records from its files if a subject consents, is dead, or is of such public interest that it overrides privacy concerns.

Clevenger said he thought it would have been clear why Hillary Clinton’s case is of public interest, but he sent documentation anyway, pointing to a request by members of Congress for an investigation into whether Hillary had perjured herself in testimony to Capitol Hill.

See “House Judiciary Committee asks for second special prosecutor to investigate Clinton-Comey-Lynch” and “House Republicans are going after Hillary Clinton!

Clevenger told The Washington Times:

“I’m just stunned. This is exactly what I would have expected had Mrs. Clinton won the election, but she didn’t. It looks like the Obama Administration is still running the FBI. How can a story receive national news coverage and not be a matter of public interest? If this is the new standard, then there’s no such thing as a public interest exception.”

So the FBI claims the American public are disinterested in Hillary Clinton?

Someone should show the FBI the results of a National EnquirerAmerica’s 25 most hated celebrities” poll, in which Hillary Clinton ranks as the second most hated (and Barack Obama the 5th most hated).

Let the FBI know you want to see the FBI’s files on Hillary Clinton:

UPDATE (Sept. 5, 2017)

On August 31, 2017, U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ordered the FBI to disclose more details about how it handled its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email account.

In doing so, Judge Boasberg overruled objections by the Trump administration that making the information public would violate grand jury secrecy rules. Boasberg said: “After reviewing the document in camera, the court concludes that it largely rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy.”(The Washington Times)

Man arrested in Houston for plotting to bomb Confederate monument

general dowling statue

Dowling statue in Houston

Bill Ayers approved.

As Newsbusters noted, to the surprise of no one: ABC, CBS, and NBC’s evening newscasts on Monday all failed to cover the thwarted bombing of a Confederate monument in Houston, Texas. 

From Breaking911.com: A 25-year-old man has been taken into custody for attempting to ‘maliciously damage or destroy property receiving federal financial assistance’, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez. The charges come after the FBI and ATF raided a home in Houston Sunday.

According to the complaint, on the evening of Aug. 19, 2017, a Houston park ranger observed Andrew Schneck kneeling among the bushes in front of the General Dowling Monument located in Hermann Park in Houston. Schneck was allegedly holding two small boxes with various items inside to include what appeared to be duct tape and wires. After placing the boxes on the ground per the ranger’s request, Schneck then allegedly took a drink from plastic bottle but immediately spit it on the ground. The ranger then noticed a timer and wires in the box and notified the Houston Police Department (HPD), according to the complaint.

The clear liquid was field tested as was a white powdery substance found in a small, black aluminum tube which revealed they were most likely nitroglycerin and Hexamethylene triperoxide diamine (HMTD), respectively, according to the charges. HMTD is a high explosive organic compound used as an initiating, or primary explosive. Nitroglycerin has been used as an active ingredient in the manufacture of explosives. ln its pure form, nitroglycerin is a contact explosive, with physical shock causing it to explode, which degrades over time to even more unstable forms. Nitroglycerin is highly dangerous to transport or use. ln its undiluted form, it is one of the world’s most powerful explosives.

Authorities believe the items in Schneck’s possession on Aug. 19 were capable to produce a viable explosive device, according to the charges.

The complaint further alleges that Schneck conducts “chemistry experiments” at his Houston residence.

The City of Houston receives federal financial assistance for maintenance of Hermann Park where the General Dowling Monument is located.

If convicted, Schneck faces a minimum of five and up to 40 years in federal prison and a possible $250,000 maximum fine. The FBI and HPD are conducting the investigation.

The Left is waging civil war against America – and what you should do about it

On his nationally-syndicated radio show on Friday, August 18, 2017, Rush Limbaugh sounded the warning that America is on the verge of civil war:

America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. And I’m sure it’s the same with you. We haven’t seen anything like this. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war. Some of you might say that we are already into it, that it has already begun. However you characterize it, though, we are under attack from within. And it’s being bought and paid for by people from outside America, in addition to inside.

I’m thinking of people like George Soros and any other number of international financiers whose objective it is to take the United States out and down as a superpower, to literally erase the United States as a powerful or super powerful nation.”

But a civil war waged by the Left is already upon us, with acts of domestic terrorism in acts and words.

(1) Antifa calls for physical violence against Trump supporters

An Antifa website, It’s Going Down, is calling for violence against all supporters of President Trump and capitalists. (If the website is taken down, here’s the archived link: http://archive.is/vtPZL)

The website has a “library” with downloadable instructions on how to form an Antifa group, and on “insurrectionary mass resistance and refusal” and militant tactics against employers and law enforcement. (See DCG’s “Antifa website calls for violence against Trump supporters“)

(2) 40,000 Leftists disrupt Boston Free Speech Rally

Yesterday, 40,000 Leftists converged on Boston to “counter-demonstrate” against a peaceful rally for free speech. After police declared the official end of the rally, Antifa thugs assaulted whites and clashed with riot police.

33 people were arrested; “some” people were injured. (See “Boston ‘Free Speech’ Rally: Leftists clash with riot police“)

(3) Blow up Mount rushmore

On August 17, 2017, Vice magazine openly calls for blowing up Mount Rushmore.

(4) Woman calls for burning down America’s suburbs

CNN describes Sherelle Smith, the sister of an armed black man shot dead by Milwaukee police on August 12 as “calling for peace” and edited out her calls for calls for rioters to burn down the suburbs (Washington Times). Smith yelled:

“Burnin’ down shit ain’t goin’ to help nuthin’! Y’all burnin’ down shit we need in our community. Take that shit to the suburbs! Burn that shit down! We need our shit. We need our weave. I don’t wear it, but we need it. We need our gas. We need our food…. Y’all want to hurt somebody, take that shit further out. Bring bring it here.”

(5) Sign calls for killing all white people

A graffiti sign in Huntington Station, NY, calls for “RAPE AND KILL ALL WHITE PEOPLE”

If you do nothing about the Left’s domestic terrorism in words and deeds, then you are part of the problem. Don’t complain when the violence is at your door.

What you can do:

(1) Report the threats of terrorism:

Report the Antifa website It’s Going Down, Sherelle Smith, Vice magazine, and other domestic terrorists to:

(2) Report threats of assassination to the Secret Service:

Secret Service phone #: 1-(202)-406-5708

(3) Contact your useless Reps in Congress:

Demand that they denounce the Left’s domestic terrorism: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

FBI data show the Left committed more acts of terrorism than the Right

If you go by the MSM, you would think that most acts of terrorism on U.S. soil are committed by “white supremacists” and Muslims.

Not so.

According to FBI data on terrorist incidents in the U.S. from 1980 to 2005, more acts of terrorism are undertaken by the Left, instead of by the Right, and terrorism by Jews is more frequent than terrorism by Muslims.

In the pie-chart below summarizing the FBI data:

  • Latinos, especially Puerto Ricans, accounted for the largest percentage of terrorism: 42%. Some examples: Organization of Volunteers for the Puerto Rico Revolution, People’s Revolutionary Commandos, Armed Forces of Popular Resistance, Ejercito Popular Boricua Macheteros, Grupo Estrella, National Liberation Movement, Armed Forces of National Liberation, Mexican Revolutionary Movement, and Omega 7 (a Cuban terrorist group).
  • The Left (“extreme left wing groups” and “Communists”) accounted for 29% (24% + 5%) of terrorism. Examples of leftwing terrorist groups are the Revolutionary Communist Party, Revolutionary Communist Youth Brigade, Communist Workers Party, United Freedom Front, Revolutionary Fighting Group, Armed Resistance Unit, Red Guerrilla Resistance, Earth First Organization, Animal Liberation Front, Earth Liberation Front, Earth Night Action Group. Some Puerto Rican terrorist groups are leftwing, which would make the Left accounting for way more than 29% of terrorism.
  • Jewish extremists such as Jewish Defenders and the Jewish Defense League/American Revenge Committee accounted for 7% of terrorism.
  • Muslim extremists accounted for 6% of terrorism, including Al-Qa’ida and International Islamist Extremists.
  • The remaining 16% of terrorist incidents were committed by various groups that include right-wing and white supremacist/neo-Nazi groups and individuals, such as Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, Eric Robert Rudolph (who bombed abortion clinics), Aryan Nations, the Justice Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, and Sheriff’s Posse Comitatus. In other words, terrorism by the Right accounted for less than 16% of terrorist incidents.

House Judiciary Committee asks for second special prosecutor to investigate Clinton-Comey-Lynch

House Republicans are doing their utmost to bring Hillary Clinton to justice.

On July 26, 2017, Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee ingeniously turned a Democrat resolution witchhunt (HRes. 446) of President Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey inside out into an amended HRes. 446 calling for an investigation into Comey’s mishandling of the FBI’s criminal investigation into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized private email server. (See “House Republicans are going after Hillary Clinton!”)

A day later, on July 27, Rep. Bob Goodlatte and other Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee redoubled their effort by sending a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate matters connected to the 2016 election which are not addressed by HRes. 446 or Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, including many actions taken by Obama Administration officials like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and FBI Director James Comey.

Below is the full text of the letter:

July 27, 2017

Dear Attorney General Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein:

We are writing to you to request assistance in restoring public confidence in our nation’s justice system and its investigators, specifically the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). We need to enable these agencies to perform their necessary and important law enforcement and intelligence functions fully unhindered by politics. While we presume that the FBI’s investigation into Russian influence has been subsumed into Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, we are not confident that other matters related to the 2016 election and aftermath are similarly under investigation by Special Counsel Mueller. The unbalanced, uncertain, and seemingly unlimited focus of the special counsel’s investigation has led many of our constituents to see a dual standard of justice that benefits only the powerful and politically well-connected. For this reason, we call on you to appoint a second special counsel to investigate a plethora of matters connected to the 2016 election and its aftermath, including actions taken by previously public figures like Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Many Democrats and members of the Washington media previously called for a “special prosecutor” to investigate Russian influence on the election and connections with the Trump campaign. Not surprisingly, once you actually made the decision to appoint a special counsel, the calls for further investigations by congressional committees continued, focused on allegations that have heretofore produced no evidence of criminality, despite the fact that over a year has passed since the opening of the original FBI investigation. Political gamesmanship continues to saturate anything and everything associated with reactions to President Trump’s executive decisions, and reveals the hypocrisy of those who refuse to allow the Special Counsel’s investigation to proceed without undue political influence. It is an unfortunate state of affairs.

Your stated rationale for recommending Director Comey’s termination as FBI Director was his mishandling of former Secretary Clinton’s email investigation and associated public disclosures concerning the investigation’s findings. We believe this was the correct decision. It is clear that Director Comey contributed to the politicization of the FBI’s investigations by issuing his public statement, nominating himself as judge and jury, rather than permitting career DOJ prosecutors to make the final decision. But many other questions remain unanswered, due to Mr. Comey’s premature and inappropriate decision, as well as the Obama Justice Department’s refusal to respond to legitimate Congressional oversight. Last week, the Republican Members of this Committee sent a letter to the Justice Department, asking for responses to those unanswered inquiries. These questions cannot, for history’s sake and for the preservation of an impartial system of justice, be allowed to die on the vine.

It is therefore incumbent on this Committee, in our oversight capacity, to ensure that the agencies we oversee are above reproach and that the Justice Department, in particular, remains immune to accusations of politicization. Many Congressional entities have been engaged in oversight of Russian influence on the election, but a comprehensive investigation into the 2016 Presidential campaign and its aftermath must, similarly, be free of even the suggestion of political interference. The very core of our justice system demands as much. A second, newly-appointed special counsel will not be encumbered by these considerations, and will provide real value to the American people in offering an independent perspective on these extremely sensitive matters.

Our call for a special counsel is not made lightly. We have no interest in engendering more bad feelings and less confidence in the process or governmental institutions by the American people. Rather, our call is made on their behalf. It is meant to determine whether the criminal prosecution of any individual is warranted based on the solemn obligation to follow the facts wherever they lead and applying the law to those facts.

As we referenced above, Democrats and the mainstream media called for a special counsel to be appointed to investigate any Russian influence on President Trump’s campaign. Their pleas were answered, but there are many questions that may be outside the scope of Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. This was clear following Mr. Comey’s recent testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8, 2017, which ignited renewed scrutiny of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and the actions she took to mislead the public concerning the investigation into the Clinton email investigation. Last year, this Committee inquired repeatedly about the circumstances surrounding that and other matters, but our inquiries were largely ignored.

During his testimony, Mr. Comey referenced a meeting on the Phoenix airport tarmac between Ms. Lynch and former President Bill Clinton. Mr. Comey raised concerns about Ms. Lynch’s conduct, and questioned her independence, stating:

At one point, the attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation, but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me. That was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude, ‘I have to step away from the department if we’re to close this case credibly.’

In addition, in preparing to testify in front of Congress for a September 2015 hearing, Mr. Comey asked Ms. Lynch at the time whether she was prepared to refer to the Clinton investigation as just that, an “investigation.” Mr. Comey testified that Ms. Lynch said, “Yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter.” Mr. Comey retorted, “Why would I do that?” Ms. Lynch answered, “Just call it a matter.” Mr. Comey stated that he acquiesced, but it gave him “a queasy feeling,” since it gave him the “impression that the attorney general was trying to align how we describe our work” with how the Clinton campaign was talking about it.

Notwithstanding the fact that the FBI is the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and not the Federal Bureau of Matters, one is hard-pressed to understand why Ms. Lynch directed then-Director Comey to call the Clinton investigation a “matter” unless she intended to use such deceptive language to help wrongly persuade the American people that former Secretary Clinton was not, in fact, the subject of a full-scale FBI investigation, or to otherwise undermine the integrity of the investigation.

Following Director Comey’s Senate Intelligence Committee testimony, Senator Dianne Feinstein was asked about the testimony while appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Senator Feinstein stated, “I would have a queasy feeling too, though, to be candid with you, I think we need to know more about that, and there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”

We share Senator Feinstein’s and Mr. Comey’s concerns – specifically, that during the midst of a contentious Presidential election, which was already rife with scandal arising from Secretary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, that our nation’s chief law enforcement officer would instruct the FBI Director, her subordinate, to mislead the American public about the nature of the investigation. Following Ms. Lynch’s directive to downplay the Clinton investigation as a “matter,” Director Comey infamously terminated the Clinton investigation, stating, “[a]lthough there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”

Mr. Comey’s testimony has provided new evidence that Ms. Lynch may have used her position of authority to undermine the Clinton investigation. At any other point in history this accusation would entail a shock to the conscience of law abiding Americans who expect a DOJ free of political influence. We only have, however, an investigation into Russian influence on the 2016 election, including any ties to the Trump campaign. To limit our nation’s insight into just this this single component of the 2016 election will only cause the special counsel’s work to be derided as one-sided and incomplete. The special counsel’s work must begin and end unimpeded by political motivations on either side of the aisle. For these reasons, the following points must also be fully investigated – ideally, via a second special counsel. This is imperative to regain the cherished trust and confidence in our undoubtedly distressed law enforcement and political institutions.

We call on a newly appointed special counsel to investigate, consistent with appropriate regulations, the following questions, many of which were previously posed by this Committee and remain unanswered:

  1. Then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing Mr. Comey to mislead the American people on the nature of the Clinton investigation;
  2. The shadow cast over our system of justice concerning Secretary Clinton and her involvement in mishandling classified information;
  3. FBI and DOJ’s investigative decisions related to former Secretary Clinton’s email investigation, including the propriety and consequence of immunity deals given to potential Clinton co-conspirators Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, John Bentel and possibly others;
  4. The apparent failure of DOJ to empanel a grand jury to investigate allegations of mishandling of classified information by Hillary Clinton and her associates;
  5. The Department of State and its employees’ involvement in determining which communications of Secretary Clinton’s and her associates to turn over for public scrutiny;
  6. WikiLeaks disclosures concerning the Clinton Foundation and its potentially unlawful international dealings;
  7. Connections between the Clinton campaign, or the Clinton Foundation, and foreign entities, including those from Russia and Ukraine;
  8. Mr. Comey’s knowledge of the purchase of Uranium One¹ by the company Rosatom, whether the approval of the sale was connected to any donations made to the Clinton Foundation, and what role Secretary Clinton played in the approval of that sale that had national security ramifications;
  9. Disclosures arising from unlawful access to the Democratic National Committee’s (DNC) computer systems, including inappropriate collusion between the DNC and the Clinton campaign to undermine Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign;
  10. Post-election accusations by the President [Trump] that he was wiretapped by the previous Administration, and whether Mr. Comey and Ms. Lynch had any knowledge of efforts made by any federal agency to unlawfully monitor communications of then-candidate Trump or his associates;
  11. Selected leaks of classified information related to the unmasking of U.S. person identities incidentally collected upon by the intelligence community, including an assessment of whether anyone in the Obama Administration, including Mr. Comey, Ms. Lynch, Ms. Susan Rice, Ms. Samantha Power, or others, had any knowledge about the “unmasking” of individuals on then candidate-Trump’s campaign team, transition team, or both;
  12. Admitted leaks by Mr. Comey to Columbia University law professor, Daniel Richman, regarding conversations between Mr. Comey and President Trump, how the leaked information was purposefully released to lead to the appointment of a special counsel, and whether any classified information was included in the now infamous “Comey memos”;
  13. Mr. Comey’s and the FBI’s apparent reliance on “Fusion GPS”² in its investigation of the Trump campaign, including the company’s creation of a “dossier” of information about Mr. Trump, that dossier’s commission and dissemination in the months before and after the 2016 election, whether the FBI paid anyone connected to the dossier, and the intelligence sources of Fusion GPS or any person or company working for Fusion GPS and its affiliates; and
  14. Any and all potential leaks originated by Mr. Comey and provide to author Michael Schmidt dating back to 1993.

You have the ability now to right the ship for the American people so these investigations may proceed independently and impartially. The American public has a right to know the facts – all of them – surrounding the election and its aftermath. We urge you to appoint a second special counsel to ensure these troubling, unanswered questions are not relegated to the dustbin of history.

Note¹: Uranium One is a uranium mining company, headquartered in Toronto,  Canada. It has operations in Australia, Canada, Kazakhstan, South Africa and the United States. In January 2013, Russian state-owned enterprise Rosatom, through its subsidiary ARMZ Uranium Holding, purchased Uranium One for $1.3 billion. For Bill Clinton and John Podesta’s involvement in Uranium One and Rosatom, click here.

Note²: Fusion GPS is a commercial DC-based intelligence firm that conducts opposition political research on political candidates, such as on Mitt Romney. The company was hired by Planned Parenthood (PP) to investigate pro-life activists who took a series of “sting” videos showing PP selling aborted baby parts to medical researchers. In the 2016 presidential campaign, Fusion GPS was first hired by Republicans to conduct “opposition research” on Donald Trump, which ended when Trump became the GOP’s presidential nominee. Hillary Clinton then became Fusion GPS’s client to dig up dirt on Trump. Fusion GPS hired former MI-6 agent Christopher Steele to compile a dossier on Trump, which became infamous for its entirely-fake allegation that Trump had hired Russian prostitutes to urinate (“golden shower”) on a Russian hotel bed supposedly used by Obama.

Send a “thank you” to Congressman Bob Goodlatte!:
