The Upstanding Senator Accusing FBI – Really? Reid Probably Should Stop His FBI Comments Before His Home State Makes Their Move and The DoJ Decides To Declare CheckMate….
Salt Lake Tribune: Prosecutor Wants DOJ to Investigate
Possible Harry Reid Connection to Suspected $2M Bribe
December 12, 2016
The $2 million cashier’s check was drawn at a St. George bank Nov. 5, 2010.
From there, it was sent by FedEx to a Los Angeles attorney who represented Ireland-based Full Tilt Poker.
Made out to “Mail Media LTD” — a Full Tilt-owned entity used to launder online-gambling funds — the millions then were deposited at Basler Kantonalbank in Switzerland, where Mail Media had an account.
And from there, Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings is investigating whether it went into a Marshall Islands account in the name of Searchlight Holding Inc. to benefit, or even bribe, Harry Reid, the once-powerful majority leader of the U.S. Senate whom online poker companies had been courting to push a bill to legalize their gaming across the nation.
But documents gathered by The Salt Lake Tribune from state and federal investigations, court filings and public records requests — including audio recordings of interviews and thousands of pages of transcripts, summaries by investigators, emails, requests for evidence and other materials — show that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI failed to pursue a vigorous investigation of this money and any potential tie to Reid.(emphasis mine)

A quick reminder of our upstanding, outstanding Senator Reid’s little shenanigans which no one in the Senate, FBI, or DoJ bothered to follow up on. He might want to consider carefully his public statements this week on Comey and the FBI – just sayin’…

Judicial Watch, “Corruption Scandals Led to Harry Reid’s Abrupt “Retirement”, March 30, 2015′:
–JW’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for his role in a number of political scandals that got more serious as his seniority and clout in Congress increased;
–2012 Reid was embroiled in an influence-peddling scandal involving a Chinese “green energy” client of a Nevada law firm run by his son Rory;

–Reid got the DHS to override agency procedures to rush through hundreds of visa applications from foreign nationals who helped fund a Las Vegas hotel and casino that hired Rory Reid to provide legal representation for the project, according to a recent news report.
After JW and others made allegations concerning his activities, a few days later Reid said he wouldn’t run for a sixth term in the Senate.
Reid is one to talk…I sincerely hope the new AG and DoJ get rolling on this man, Pelosi, and others to take them down. Hope they hire a lot of sharp hitters as attorneys. They are going to be extremely busy if they take all these people to court.
Trump needs to pull the plug and definitely dispose of the bottom trash preferably in GITMO.
