Hey Dems – Don’t Point Fingers When Your Hand Is Covered In Poop

Dems seem to never learn…the stink of corruption on their hands simply gets worse and the sinkhole they are standing in gets deeper.

 

Radical Dem worked for Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr.

Radical left-wing icon former California Democratic Rep. Ron Dellums was a hired lobbyist for Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. June 9, 2016, the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned.

Dellums, who represented liberal San Francisco and Oakland, Calif., is a long-time darling of left-wing political activists. He served 13 terms in Congress as an African-American firebrand and proudly called himself a socialist. He retired in 1996. (He was a supporter of Castro according to the article.)

A national outcry has erupted in the establishment media about Trump Jr.’s meeting with Veselnitskaya. But there has been little focus on the Democrats who willingly served for years on her payroll helping to wage a Russian-led lobby campaign against the law.  Congress passed the legislation, the Magnitsky Act, in response to the murder of Sergei Magnistky, a Russian lawyer who alleged corruption and human rights violations against numerous Russian officials.

The former congressman, Dellum, is only one of a notable team of partisan Democrats Veselnitskaya hired to defeat the Magnitsky Act.

Glenn Simpson, founder of Fusion GPS, also joined the Russian lawyer and “worked with her on a legal case for years,” according to the Washington Post.

Fusion GPS is the firm that reportedly commissioned a phony “dossier” authored by former British spy Christopher Steele that alleged salacious and largely erroneous charges about President Donald Trump.

Christopher Cooper, the founder and CEO of Potomac Square Group, also joined Veselnitskaya. His company does campaign work for foreign principles and foreign governments including the governments of Azerbaijan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, UAE, and Nigeria as well as Russia. The company’s clients have included Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic presidential hopeful Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.

Potomac Square also partnered with Dean’s campaign manager Joe Trippi on behalf of the families of radical Islamic terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay.

Information on the issue:

1-  Complaint filed to the Department of Justice Foreign Agents Registration Act division last July, Dellums failed to register as a foreign agent representing a Russian-driven effort led by Veselnitskaya to repeal the Magnitsky Act.

2- Hillary Clinton took steps in the State Department to punish Russia for their actions even though she had been involved in “resetting” relations with Russia. The Magnitsky Act barred 18 Russians  and ultimately up to 50-60 Russians from entering the United States because of the lawyer’s death. Magnitsky was a tax lawyer with the Hermitage Fund, a London-based firm that invested in Russia. Hermitage Capital Management had been under investigation in Russia for not paying taxes supposedly according to Strategic Culture Foundation. He uncovered a $230 million scheme allegedly run by Russian mobsters. He informed Russian officials of the corruption. He was subsequently arrested in Russia and tortured to death according to Human Rights observations. (The entire affair reeks of spying, collusion, mystery, intrigue, murder, and seems as if it would have easily been on a best seller list. Wikipedia has an interesting take on the issue.)

3- In response the Russians issued a tit-for-tat in response to both the Senate bill and the European initiatives, State Duma deputies announced a bill that would restrict entry, freeze assets and ban the business deals of foreigners deemed to have violated the rights of Russian citizens. Ultimately, the Russians barred the adoption of their children by foreigners as one aspect of retaliation.

4- Why would Clinton have become involved in a human rights issue about a lawyer of Russian origins who found out about activities of a Russian mob situation while doing an audit? Here is one take on the issue:

“How could a tax evading U.S. investment firm in Moscow, co­founded by Bill Browder, the grandson of Earl Browder, the former leader of the Communist Party USA, obtain the personal interest of Hillary Clinton? It turns out that Hermitage Capital Management was a donor to the Clinton Foundation, which is at the center of a huge pay­-to-­play influence ­peddling scandal during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.”  alleged by Strategic Culture Foundation 1/10/2016 The paper also alleged that CIA Brennan had voted for the ouster of Browder in the CPU and that the CIA was riddled with communist sympathizers.

It is also interesting that April 2015 Newsweek article delves deeper into the Iran/railway ties with the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation. Including her ties to Ukrainian oligarch Victor Pinchuk as the largest individual contributor to the Clinton Foundation, whose aims include the creation of “economic opportunity and growth”. He also has links to the Tony Blair Foundation and represented its biggest single donor in 2013. Newsweek  stated it had seen declarations and documents from Ukraine that show a series of shipments from Interpipe to Iran in 2011 and 2012, including railway parts and products commonly used in the oil and gas sectors. One has to question how those shipments went from the Ukraine to the Caspian Sea. In November 2014, the now-retired Republican congressman, Steve Stockman, wrote to the US Department of the Treasury, questioning Interpipe’s dealings with Iran. Pinchuk and Clinton appear to be on close footing both having attended each others birthday celebrations.

 

5-  Prevezon Holdings Ltd., a Russian-owned firm, was implicated in the scandal. Prevezon was owned by Denis Katsyv who, along with Veselnitskaya, created the Human Rights Accountability Global Initiative Foundation in the U.S.  The foundation was designed to repeal the Magnitsky Act using a lobbying team that included Dellums. BizPacReview (above). The Daily Beast notes that Denis Katsyv’s father, Pyotr, was the vice governor of the Moscow region between 2004 and 2012, and is now vice president of the state-run Russian Railways.

6- The tale continues to unfold as Senator Grassley just sent correspondence addressed to Secretary Tillerson, State Dept, and Secretary Kelly, DHS to request all pertinent information on Natalia Veselnitskaya, her parole into the US, her visa, and the Obama administration role in her remaining in the US some six months or more after her parole visa expired.

Facts available on bills pertaining to  S.284, the “Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act”.

The fact that the bill was introduced and continued down the pipeline led Russian activity ramp up against the bill in the US and against actions threatened in Europe. Eventually there began an effort to lobby against the bill and by some to be considered a personal vendetta by Putin. This is where Natalia Veselnitskaya and her lobby group become involved.

  1. Senator Benjamin Cardin (D-M D) introduced the bill 1/28/2015. Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act–Co-sponsors of the bill included: McCain, Shaheen, Rubio, Durbin, Wicker, Blumenthal, Markey, Kirk, Cruz, and Coons
  2. (Sec. 3) This bill authorizes the President to impose U.S. entry and property sanctions against any foreign person (or entity) who:
    1. is responsible for extrajudicial killings, torture, or other gross violations of internationally recognized human rights committed against individuals in any foreign country seeking to expose illegal activity carried out by government officials, or to obtain, exercise, or promote human rights and freedoms
      acted as an agent of or on behalf of a foreign person in such activities;
    2. is a government official or senior associate of such official responsible for, or complicit in, ordering or otherwise directing acts of significant corruption, including the expropriation of private or public assets for personal gain, corruption related to government contracts or the extraction of natural resources, bribery, or the facilitation or transfer of the proceeds of corruption to foreign jurisdictions; or
    3. has materially assisted or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services in support of, such activities.
  3. After typical congressional discussion, the bill passed the Senate as amended 12/17/2015.
  4. A companion bill was introduced as HR624 3/17/2015 by Rep Chris Smith (R-NJ) and co-sponsored by 40 Democrats and 28 Republicans.
  5. Instead of standing alone, the bill was added within the S.2943 – National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 sponsored by Senator McCain along with a dozen or more other bills on 5/18/2016. That bill became law 12/23/2016. as Public Law No: 114-328.

Oh what a tangled web……….

It’s entirely hilarious though horrific in its corruption that EVERY time the Dems start screaming about someone or something going on in Trump’s administration — especially to do with Russia…it isn’t Trump that is the guilty party but the frigging Democrat and RINOS.

I’m at the stage where I am ready to gather up all these donkeys and throw them in a prison until each one can be brought before the courts and investigated for their crimes. Geez.

    There’s your typical warty faced babushka. She makes a mockery of all those Russian mail order bride internet ads don’t she?

  2. GunnyG says:

    Hang them all, one at a time, until one finally spills the beans and then hang them all.

  3. Terry says:

    This whole ‘Take Down Trump’ movement has gone from comical to “enough already”, to just plain sickening. There are some real twisted beings on the left, and they are just getting worse.
    Read the comments on any left leaning post and the hatred and vitriol is thick. Something is going to have to give, and soon. It won’t be pretty.

  4. Popular Front says:

    Just in case you’re interested, the same media-driven shit was flung at our popularly elected Prime Minister Tony Abbott. Everything he did, said (or they thought he did) was ruthlessly ridiculed. He glanced at his watch while a woman was speaking in parliament so he was therefore a sexist mysogynist. He said ‘shit happens’* to some Army officers in Afghanistan in reply to their comment about random casualties so therefore he was indifferent to Australian soldiers’ welfare. He ate a raw onion therefore he is a weirdo and so on and so on ad nauseam.

    * As any combat veteran can tell you shit DOES happen in the field. You can take all the precautions available and some poor bastard will still step on a mine nobody knew was there. I speak from much first-hand experience.

      No doubt Popular. Crap happens every day not planned for. I find it absolutely appalling that these arses across the world as well as here at home fell down the same contaminated well nearly at the same time.

    Loved your post title. 🙂 Great commentary too.

    I say waterboard them all, get the info, then firing squad. This is ridiculous. These Leftists are preventing possible improvement to millions of Americans.

    Steyn was spot on as usual.
