Rep. Elijah Cummings letter to Trey Gowdy on requesting documents on Kushner Companies (20.10.2017)
I write what I like.
Today, I am coming in defense of Hillary Clinton, not because the Trump Administration is right, but if she was wrong and deserved punishment for her use of private email server, while being Secretary of State during her time under President Barrack Obama. Than Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner needs scrutiny too, it doesn’t matter if their sending mails with picture of their kids to the other family members. It doesn’t matter if they are spilling out secrets of how to cook with expensive imported red-wine from South of France. It doesn’t matter.
Since the whole Trump Campaign of 2016 was focused on the crime of the century, the crime of the decade, the ones that has been spent by different committees in Congress and has been scrutinized more than anything coming out of this administration. Not even a single Executive Order or Proclamation has had so much facts and so much basis in reality, as the Hillary Clinton E-Mail and Benghazi threatment. Even if people could have done the same with Donald J. Trump for his misfiring in Yemen without having proper knowledge of the enemy, but since it is Trump and his ass stamped with a Republican sticker. He can run wild like Terminator. Well, he is like the President in the Simpson Movie, not elected to read, but to lead.
Today, I will first show to ordinary quotes of how Trump wanted Clinton punished and how criminal it was of her to use private email and private server to send that, while being in office. Than, today’s revelation of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. Look!
Trump on Clinton’s Private Server:
“Speaking in front of a rowdy crowd in Green Bay, Wisconsin Monday night, Trump referred to Clinton’s dealings with the State Department and the FBI as “a criminal enterprise.” “The Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy illegally pressured the FBI to un-classify emails from Hillary’s illegal server,” Trump said. “That’s a lot of illegality in that one statement.” (Berenson, 2016)
““Hillary Clinton created an illegal private email server — deliberately, willfully and with total premedication — premeditation,” Trump said, correcting himself. He then added: “Could be the first way was right actually. “You know, I might like the first way better. ‘Premedication,’ that’s a very — premedication, I think I like it. Wow,” Trump continued as the crowd cheered him on” (Diamond, 2016).
Ivanka Trump Private E-Mail:
“Ivanka Trump, the first daughter and adviser to the president, used a personal email address to communicate with a government official after her father took office, according to documents that the nonprofit American Oversight obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and shared exclusively with Newsweek” (…) “The documents show that on February 28, Trump—identifying herself as Ivanka Kushner—emailed Linda McMahon, the administrator of the United States Small Business Administration, from a personal domain. At the time, Trump was operating inside the White House in a nonofficial capacity. She wrote that she wanted McMahon’s agency and her staff to “explore opportunities to collaborate” on issues related to “women’s entrepreneurship.” She copied on the correspondence the government email addresses of two other federal employees, Dina Powell and Julie Radford” (Kutner & Burleigh, 2017).
Jared Kushner Private Email:
“Jared Kushner, senior White House adviser and son-in-law of President Donald Trump, has occasionally used a private email account for correspondence with fellow administration officials, his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, confirmed to CNN on Sunday. “Mr. Kushner uses his White House email address to conduct White House business,” Lowell said in a statement. “Fewer than a hundred emails from January through August were either sent to or returned by Mr. Kushner to colleagues in the White House from his personal email account.”(Tatum, 2017).
If you don’t see it, you will never see it. That the Trump family are trying to act like they can do whatever they want as long as they are in office. But they can tarnish others. They can say their acts are criminal even after the FBI and other institutions, other investigations finds nothing on them. That while themselves even after they come to power and gets elected. Do the same sort of thing. Its insane, its stupid and reckless. Just like the Trump family always has been, the difference they all got roles in White House.
With White House comes consequences, security clearances and national interests. This is not supposed be free-ride and be somewhere you can act as please. There are rules and regulations, there are an office of governmental ethics (OGE) who puts the standards of the government officials. That to safeguard the state and the republic. The White House should respect their history and the Trump Administration should go beyond doing the same as Clinton. Especially, since Trump has said many times she deserved to be prosecuted for what she did.
So now it is revealed that the Son-in-Law and his oldest daughter has done the same. That Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump has now done the same as the Hillary Clinton. They have all used Private Emails and Servers, that is not on government clearances and servers. That are safeguarded and firewalls from foreign interference and also hackers. The hacking is something the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Clinton Campaign knows all about. Therefore, the Trump Administration should know better, but it doesn’t.
This government is a New York Gang, they can do whatever they want and get away without 24/7, dozens of committees investigating them and having public scrutiny, the little time used on the Russia will hopefully hurt the Trump Administration. Especially after this revelations, as this proves that they are reckless and proving double-standard compared to the counter-parts!
Donald Trump should apologize to Clinton, since his own is doing what she did. Not that will happen, he never says sorry and doesn’t have the character to do so. Now what else has they said others have done and is doing. Well, he talked bad about the Goldman Sachs connections of Clinton, when he started to hire his Cabinet. Then it was okay to for him to appoint them. Hypocrisy is his ways. Peace.

This is another batch of the leaks happening from WikiLeaks from the PodestaFiles. There been days upon days with new leaks that has happen all through October. Been hard to follow it all and the intelligence you can gather from it in the end, would be how a political machine and election procedures are happening for career politicians like Hillary Clinton. There been some scalps and misgivings in the leak.
Today is a brief spell into the Clinton Foundation first, secondly will be little about the surrogates of Clinton, third on Policy, fourth is on E-Mail Scandal and last Media. These are well-known territory, but I will let the leaks speak for themselves.
“Guys – Given the story yesterday about pay equity at the State Department, I wanted to flag something that came out of our research on pay equity at the Foundation. There are huge discrepancies, and it wouldn’t surprise me if they went here next. See a summary below from Karuna” [Ian Mandel to Tony Carrk and Robert Mook “Subject: Fwd: Equal Pay – Foundation” 24th February 2015].
Equal Pay problems in Clinton Foundation:
10 out of the 19 members (52%) of the Clinton Foundation’s Leadership Team, as listed on BHCCF’s website, are women, however only 3 out of the highest paid 11 employees (27%) are women. The highest paid men average a salary of $294,157.50, while the highest paid women average a salary of $181,576.66, over $100,000 lower than the men. [Clinton Foundation Website, last accessed 12/10/14; Clinton Foundation 990, 2012; Clinton Foundation 990, 2013].
Use Howard Dean as Surrogate:
“Just watched him on Meet. At this time with Warren and Biden floating around he is the single best voice to speak about HRC as a surrogate. He is measured, thoughtful, talks substance not process, has run himself, the press likes him and he leans left. He was terrific this morning. I strongly suggest you get him out there more” [Gordon Griffin to John Podesta: “Subject: Howard Dean” on 05.08.2015].
Surrogate need advice:
“On April 8, I have gotten hoodwinked into doing Squawk Box on CNBC for 2 hours as a host. I may drag Al along with me. I know I will get tons of questions on the economy, the current fiscal situation, monetary policy, and of course why I’m supporting Hillary. I can’t just say I love her, although I might. What I would like to do is give some personal examples I have as to her effectiveness. But I will also need to comment on her fiscal plans and compare those to Bernie’s and whoever is left in the republican race at that time. Is it possible to get someone to send me some data and research so I can be as persuasive as possible, Thanks so much. Erskine” [Erskine sent to John Podesta on 7th March 2016].
Turkish funding of DNC:
“John, heard this second hand but more than once. Seems Erdogan faction is making substantial investments in U.S. to counter opposition (CHP, Kurds, Gulenists etc.) outreach to policymakers and USG. Am told that the Erdogan crew also tries to make inroads via donations to Democratic candidates, including yours. Two names that you should be aware of are *Mehmet Celebi* and *Ali Cinar*. Happy to elaborate on the phone, provided you are not shopping at the liquor store” [Michael Werz sent to John Podesta “Subject: Flagging Turkish campaign donations” 19th August 2015].
On Cadillac tax:
“Very few if any rank and file will be touched by $250K and above. I do think your point about them understanding its repeal is important…so if she says repeal, pauses and says I need some kind of pay for that still relieves this burden on the middle class and therefore folks making over $250K will take the hit…maybe the way to do it? Of course I understand she still has this decision to make” [Nikki Budzinski to Amanda Renteria “Subject: Re: Copy of HRC Memo on Cadillac Tax” on the 25th September 2015].
CNN: Email Scandal:
“Hey Nick, I’m writing a story about the formal request Chairman’s Gowdy office sent to David Kendall today asking that Sec. Clinton hand over her email server to the State Dept IG or another independent third party. I’d like to know whether the secretary plans to do so and if she has any response to the letter. I’m on deadline now” [Chris Frates sent to Nick Merrill “Subject: CNN deadline question” 20th March 2015].
Politico: Email Scandal.
“One quick follow up– no fingerprints. As you said, there wasn’t a hell of a lot you guys could do after the Schmidt story — the emails were already deleted… etc. What action — OTR — did u advise. What were the decision points. Cheers/Thrush. Glenn Thrush” [Glenn Thrush to John Podesta “Subject: sorry to bother” 5th October 2015].
“Well, I know you had a good weekend! We’ve been working with the campaign folks to reschedule my interview with Secretary Clinton. I wanted to write you about some of the metrics that we are getting and let you know through placement on Facebook we can guarantee 1.5 million views in addition to Yahoo engagement which has been close to 1 million for my political interviews. I’d also like to do a separate piece of business through social media along the lines of “10 things you don’t know about Hillary Clinton” that would showcase her personality and has a lot of viral potential. I know there is a lot of demands on her time, but we have been waiting patiently to schedule something and I’m sure we’ve been driving the campaign staff crazy, but the reach and engagement will be significant and I’m very much looking forward to having the opportunity to talk to her. I have been assured the campaign wants this as well. Can you help make this happen? I’d really appreciate your help” (Katie Couric to John Podesta “Subject: Re: Note from Katie Couric” 22nd February 2016).
I hope you find these leaks interesting, because they say a lot about the activity and acts of the Clinton Campaign, the relationship they have and how the Democratic Party works. We can see how they together with all Surrogates, Media and others are working. This is important together with internal reports on the payment structure in Clinton Foundation proves the legitimate claims of following old-stereotype payment of men over woman. That deserves to be scrutinized, maybe be another man than me. I am sure that Hannity looks into as we speak (joking). Let’s be clear, this is another day with the same drama, as there aren’t as I’ve seen with today’s leaks many explosives inside the Clinton Campaign team. Still, interesting in the perspective of how they work on the inside. Maybe we will see next time for some more UFO’s and Bernie Sanders bashing Mails again? Peace.
There are now more evident that the Hillary Clinton Campaign has worked close with the media. As proven twice already on my page alone as the WikiLeaks continues to drop internal mails from Campaign Manager John Podesta. Even so the Trump Campaign is ailing so much these days that the Ailing Ailes has left the building. The Hillary Campaign can catch bugs like this and still fly-high. Says more about the completion than about Clinton and her team; this proves the extent of conspiracy and evident maladministration, that has extended to the cause of using any possible way to get good coverage in the media. Part of me say they didn’t need to do this as the Trump Campaign has been flawed and faltered because of Trump’s acts and words. Therefore the leaks of WikiLeaks, proves the problems with Clinton, but that is still small-fry compared to the king-pin of lies and malicious vicious corrupt activity Mr. Trump.
So here take a look at the interesting ones from Today and Yesterday.
Politico asking for ques:
“I’m finishing up and WJC/priorities story and your name keeps popping up got 5 mins for an ptr chat? Cheers/Thrush” (Glenn Thrush to John Podesta – ‘howdy’ 29.06.2015).
MSNBC Chris Dodd wanting to help:
“I’m doing MSNBC and Bloomberg tomorrow morning. I’d like to help Hillary out on this financial reform stuff. I’d like to debunk the notion that just because she’s gotten contributions from Wall Street, that she doesn’t care about the issues. Want to be factual about where she’s been and how she’s been supportive. I know the rhetoric but would like to know some specific facts. If not you, can someone get back to me? Sorry to reach out so late” (Eryn Sepp sending mail to John Podesta – ‘Cell Vmails — One Timely from Chris Dodd’ 21.07.2015).
Hillary Clinton working with Q-Tip:
“Q-Tip who is an ambassador member of Harry Belafonte’s Sankofa.org has long been highly committed to issues of social justice. Q-Tip is devoted to amplifying the voices of the disenfranchised in an effort to promote justice, peace and equal rights for all. He is a big supporter of the work Mrs. Clinton has done throughout her career and has also worked alongside former president Bill Clinton at a 2003 DNC fundraiser. He even served as DJ for Chelsea Clinton’s 25th birthday party in 2005. He’s had a lasting track record with the Clinton’s throughout the years. In fact, he had hoped to see Mrs. Clinton at his close friend Tory Burch’s fundraiser tomorrow in The Hamptons. However, due to a prior commitment in Los Angeles, he will be not be able to make it” (From Betsy Jones – Q-Tip Assistance to John Podesta: ‘Meeting request with Hillary Clinton’ 29.08.2015).
CNBC planning interview with HRC:
“All I can say about message below is: –HRC doesn’t like bullshit coverage of hyped-up controversies –She does like serious substantive policy conversations –her number one issue is making American families better off in this economy –I don’t do bullshit coverage, I focus on the economy, and I can conduct a serious substantive conversation about that with her better than anybody else on platforms that matter. Please let me know anything I can do to make this interview happen, if not in December then in January” (John Harwood to John Podesta – ‘FW: Are you back?’ 02.12.2015).
Funding from Unions to the Super-Pac Hillary Victory Fund:
“Others unions that have maxed out to HVF over this past week, with checks coming in… AFSCME ($130k) LIUNA ($165k) Operating Engineers ($150k) IUPAT ($100k) Bricklayers ($100k) Machinists ($50k. More then anytime before) Just a FYI. Working with Mike on a few others (AFT and UA) before end of year” (Nikki Budzinski to Robby Mook – ‘Re: Follow-up’ 19.12.2015).
On Ted Cruz of the GOP:
“Donald Trump says that, if the Republicans nominate Cruz, “the Democrats” will file a lawsuit challenging Cruz’ eligibility. DSW — or, more ambitiously, DSW, Clinton, Sanders and O’Malley — should issue a statement saying that, If Cruz is nominated, the Democratic Party will not challenge his eligibility and that the voters should reject him because of his views and record, not his birthplace” (Donna Brazile to John Podesta – ‘Re: A thought’ 30.01.2016).
“DATE SURROGATE NETWORK SHOW TIME
2/13/2016 Rep. Gregory Meeks MSNBC Alex Witt 7:00 AM
2/13/2016 Senator Cory Booker MSNBC Melissa Harris Perry 11:00 AM
2/13/2016 SC Sen Margie Bright Matthews MSNBC Alex Witt 12:20 PM
2/13/2016 Governor Richardson MSNBC Alex Witt 1:00 PM” (Alexandria Phillips sent it to HRC Campaign Team, Subject: Surrogates Out So Far (2/13), 13.02.2016).
Millennials and Clinton:
“You likely saw Nancy Pelosi’s comments praising Sen Sanders for bringing millennials into the political process and saying they only wanted fairness and opportunity. I think this is the perfect tone to take with these voters. I have been dismayed in the last few weeks to see both Pres and Sec Clinton talk about these voters as wanting impossible things, or as Mitt Romney might say, free things. I do ‘t see how this language helps at all. Sec Clinton does not need millennials to win the nomination. She may need them to win the election. They should be embraced” (From Catholics Alliance’s Fred to John Podesta – ‘Re: John’ 26.02.2016).
If that weren’t interesting read, than I don’t know what will entice your mind. Peace.
Another day, another E-Mail leak from the inside of the Hillary Clinton for President 2016. This is mails leaked from the John Podesta files of WikiLeaks. This proves again their relationship with the corporate media that shows what they belief in and who they believe in. This here is just a taste of the leaks, as there are so many dropped every-day that there surely more stories that could been told.
Here today, we can see how the HRC campaign banter about New York Times stories, how they asked for quotes to Politico and also the Hill and Time Magazine. They are asking it differently. Still, showing
Story for Time Magazine:
“I am a reporter for TIME Magazine, and am working on a story about why Donald Trump bowed out of the 2012 presidential race. Would you, or any spokesperson for the Hilary campaign, be willing to be interviewed for the story? Let me know – there will of course be complete anonymity. Best, Aditya to John Podesta” (Aditya Agrewa – ‘Subject: Interview for TIME Magazine’ (27.03.2015).
Wanting a fight with New York Times:
“They tried but could not confirm the politico story and then by day’s end yesterday, ODNI issued a statement saying the review was not done yet. Did I miss something or did they completely ignore the clapper matter and instead focus on another Grassley lead of an innocuous Teneo letter? I feel like a another public editor screed should be in the offing”. (Brian Fallon – ‘Subject: Re: We haven’t had a good war with NYT in awhile’ (07.11.2015).
Colum in the Hill:
“You should like it. I make a brief reference to her campaign going too negative in NH, hinting briefly it came from consultants, but otherwise it is 95% positive, mentions the WJC three minute video and her “imagine” speech as how she should proceed, says she has big dreams too and should tell America about them…. I did see a brief snippet on CNN that an unnamed aide is telling CNN that she is going to more aggressively negative against Bernie. I ignored that in my column but obviously believe that would be a big big mistake” (Brent Budowsky – ‘Subject: Re: Hillary column tomorrow’ 10.02.2016).
Getting Quotes to Politico:
“Hi John. Very nice talking to you the other day. A small request. Andrew Restuccia is writing about my departure for Monday, day of the announcement. He’d take a quote from you if you were able to email him something. If you’ve got time to do, his email address is ARestuccia@politico.com mailto:ARestuccia@politico.com Many thanks. Great day on Tuesday. Congrats. Talk soon” (SternTD sent mail to John Podesta: ‘Subject: quote for a story’ 18.03.2016).
This we’re what was from the Media, here was one important advice giving Hillary Clinton if she wanted to win this election:
“The Clintons too often use language that is for Washington insiders and not for the rest of us out here in America. With Trump attacking Pres. Clinton for allegations of infidelity, she should not respond with “he can make personal attacks” or suggest that this is what Republicans have always done. Instead, she should make this a VERY PERSONAL MOMENT. She is failing to connect with voters – in large part, I believe, because she uses Washington speak. She should not just be connecting with women voters in a better way, they should be energized in a big way. She’s failing in this regard. Dump the Washington political speak immediately – including partisan language. Replace it with words that average voters understand. When she talks about Trump or Cruz or other Republicans, she should attack them for their policies – not even mention that they are Republicans. I also believe she’s making a mistake by attacking Sanders in a personal way. People grew tired of this from the Clintons. It’s not what they want to see. GET A PERSONAL CONNECTION” (Steve Hildebrand to Joel Beneson – ‘Subject: *Some unsolicited advice’ 16.01.2016).
In this election that is the grandest advice anyone could have given her. Steve Hildebrand gave her a good one and hope she sticks to it.
These leaks are not a good look, but compared to sexist and chauvinistic leaks of Trump, these are more tolerable and understandable, as Clinton tries to use the system in her advantage, though not ethical correct as she then turns into a prop in the Media instead of being scrutinized as the Politician she is and with the luggage she carries. Peace.
What has been questioned and used like a Urban legend by the Republican Party, proves now by the E-Mail leaks from WikiLeaks, as there certain Journalists and certain Companies that sees the Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. Clinton has been little in the news compared to Trump that is because Trump is so blatant and destructive together with his views on Muslims, Mexicans, and Women, and so on.
Clinton together with her machinery of Democratic Party and her supportive organizations such as the Podesta who are advising the ‘Hillary for President’ and other organizations who works for Hillary Clinton; this proves the ways of the using the system and media today. During the weekend I wrote about what I found in the first Podesta leak, this about todays release of documents. This is what I found interesting.
From the New York Times Nicholas Confessore:
“Hi John, I am sure you have lot and lots of downtime these days to talk to reporters, and so this question no doubt is well-timed. But can you offer any wisdom on whether this contretemps between Messina and Brock tells us anything about the future of the other Obama alums who have found places, or are seeking them, in Greater Clintonland? To put the question more directly–is this blow up over Media Matters going to make it harder for the Clinton folks to bring in and use effectively the best of the Obama alums? Seems you are among the few people widely respected in both camps. So your opinion would count for a lot. thank you, Nick” (On Feb 10, 2015 1:36 PM, “Confessore, Nicholas”).
Podesta answered the Journalist: “Well put” (On Wed, Feb 11, 2015 at 11:54 AM, John Podesta).
“Hillary’s ads need to be young people – all under 45 and a smattering of older ones – validating her – saying why they support her / trust her with their future/ will vote for her -(maybe mix in some older Enviro leaders and civil rights leaders) with millennials and gen x- along with a boomer or two. Why they are for her versus – why she is for them” (From: Mariannes Smith, Date: 2016-02-18 20:33).
In November John Harwood wants Hillary Clinton to talk Economy…
“with me, it will be the kind of substantive, deep, textured conversation about the economy she wants John Harwood CNBC/NYT” (2015-11-24 10:38 Subject: Re: don’t you think it’s time…).
Questionable mail from Podesta to NBC:
He answered on the 15 March 2016 to NBC Universal with John Harwood. Where all he wrote that today: “Yup. Feeling good”.
Univision’s debate e-mail:
“Haim , I just wanted to tell you that I thought the moderators for last nights Debate were excellent. They were thoughtful , tough and incisive. I thought it made Hilary appear direct and strong in her resolve. I felt it advanced our candidate. Thanks for Univision. Rob Rob Friedman Co-Chairman, Motion Picture Group LIONSGATE” (Thursday, March 10, 2016 4:33 PM To: Haim Saban Subject: Univision).
Because of wrong endorsement the Clinton machine will not support a Candidate:
“Representative Gabbard,: We were very disappointed to hear that you would resign your position with the DNC so you could endorse Bernie Sanders, a man who has never been a Democrat before. When we met over dinner a couple of years ago I was so impressed by your intellect, your passion, and commitment to getting things done on behalf of the American people. For you to endorse a man who has spent almost 40 years in public office with very few accomplishments, doesn’t fall in line with what we previously thought of you. Hillary Clinton will be our party’s nominee and you standing on ceremony to support the sinking Bernie Sanders ship is disrespectful to Hillary Clinton. A woman who has spent the vast majority of her life in public service and working on behalf of women, families, and the underserved. You have called both myself and Michael Kives before about helping your campaign raise money, we no longer trust your judgement so will not be raising money for your campaign” (From: Darnell Strom Sent: Monday, February 29, 2016 3:13 PM To: Tulsi Gabbard Cc: Michael Kives Subject: Disappointed).
I just had to drop the representative who also endorsed Bernie Sanders we’re now cut of the money stream that is connected with Hillary Clinton. That proves that the ethical value doesn’t matters in the Democratic Party, but the loyalty to the picked nominee from the DNC. That is also worrying, not only how New York Times, Lionsgate or NBC who acts in favor of Clinton and wants her support. Peace.
