Attorney General Nominee Loretta Lynch Tied To Massive Obama Money-Laundering Cover-Up

AG Nominee Eyed In Massive Obama Cover-Up – World Net Daily

.

.
Attorney general nominee Loretta Lynch could be facing new confirmation problems in the U.S. Senate after being tied to the world’s biggest banking scandal, involving HSBC, which used its power to temporarily shut down WND.com as the news site was breaking a series of stories on the mega-bank’s money-laundering practices – practices that resulted in more than $1.2 billion in fines

According to court papers filed Wednesday, Eric Holder’s Department of Justice appears to be stonewalling the release of documents that could implicate Lynch in a massive cover-up of Obama administration involvement in international money-laundering of Mexican cartel drug money.

In 2012, Lynch, as the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, oversaw the investigation of drug-related international money laundering allegations against London-based HSBC Holdings LLC.

WND published a series articles documenting charges HSBC laundered billions of dollars that traced back to the Mexican drug cartels, culminating with a $1.256 billion fine paid to the U.S. government to end the investigation and avoid the filing of criminal charges.

The federal government’s unwillingness to prosecute HSBC was exposed by a former HSBC vice president and relationship manager in New York, John Cruz, who called the bank a “criminal enterprise.” Cruz was ignored by law enforcement authorities until he brought to WND 1,000 pages of customer account records that document his claims.

Cruz called the $1.92 billion fine the U.S. government imposed on HSBC “a joke” and filed a $10 million lawsuit for “retaliation and wrongful termination.” Whistleblowers in India and London joined Cruz in charging the HSBC settlement amounted to a massive cover-up.

In response to WND’s reporting of Cruz’s evidence, HSBC lodged a complaint that blocked Internet access to one of the WND stories, and senior reporter Jerome Corsi was fired by the New York City investment firm he had worked with for two years as a senior managing director, Gilford Securities.

WND also reported on evidence Holder’s Justice Department did not investigate money-laundering charges in deference to bank clients of his Washington-based law firm, where he was a partner prior to joining the Obama administration.

In addition, WND reported HSBC was engaged in a systematic scheme to defraud citizens of India who live abroad out of billions of dollars in investment accounts.

‘Continuing to cover up’

In a telephone interview Friday, Cruz said the Obama administration “is continuing to cover up its role in the HSBC money laundering scandal.”

“The IRS has blocked every legal effort I have made to be credited as a whistleblower in the HSBC billion-dollar settlement,” Cruz said. “It is impossible that the Obama administration did not know HSBC was laundering drug money for the Mexican cartels, because the documentation I had showed the laundered money passed through the federal wire-transfer services.”

Cruz charged the 1,000 pages of customer account records show HSBC relied on identity theft, capturing legitimate Social Security numbers that were then used to create bogus retail and commercial bank accounts. Through the accounts, HSBC employees systematically deposited and withdrew hundreds of millions of dollars on a daily basis, apparently without the knowledge of the identity-theft victims.

“When an individual finds out they got a loan they never knew about, 5 percent of that loan went to the accounting firm that made up the phony tax returns and the other 95 percent of that loan went to the manager,” he explained.

“One manager was involved in the transaction, another manager was involved in notarizing the transaction, and senior management was involved where they signed off permission to give the loans even when the loans get rejected by underwriting.”

In an attempt to make his charges public, Cruz in 2011 published a book titled, “World Banking World Fraud: Using Your Identity.”

On July 17, 2012, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, released a majority and minority 330-page staff report titled, “U.S. Vulnerabilities to Money Laundering, Drugs, and Terrorist Financing: HSBC Case History.” It documented HSBC’s role in illegally laundering hundreds of billions of dollars of drug money for the Mexican cartels and for terrorist-affiliated Middle Eastern groups.

“In an age of international terrorism, drug violence in our streets and on our borders, and organized crime, stopping illicit money flows that support those atrocities is a national security imperative,” said the committee’s chairman at the time, Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich.

Levin said HSBC “used its U.S. bank as a gateway into the U.S. financial system for some HSBC affiliates around the world to provide U.S. dollar services to clients while playing fast and loose with U.S. banking rules.”

HSBC paid the $1.256 billion fine in December 2012 in an deferred prosecution agreement with the Justice Department for violations of the Bank Secrecy Act, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act and the Trading with the Enemy Act.

Corruption Update: Obama Busted For Major Ebola Cover-Up

Obama Busted For Major Ebola Cover Up… Details Are Infuriating – Conservative Tribune

.

.
On Sept. 16, President Barack Obama assured the American people that the risk of an Ebola outbreak within the United States was “extremely low.” As subsequent events proved, he was wrong.

But an alarming new revelation from Israel’s Arutz Sheva proves that Obama was more than just wrong; he was dishonest.

The report says that a federal study by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency and the federal Models of Infectious Disease Agency released on Sept. 2 found a nearly 25 percent chance of the deadly hemorrhagic fever reaching America’s shores within three to six weeks, according to The Daily Caller.

Despite the reported “probability of Ebola virus disease case importation,” Obama lied to the American people, downplaying the threat.

“First and foremost, I want the American people to know that our experts, here at the CDC and across our government, agree that the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low,” Obama said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has also assured the nation on multiple occasions that the Ebola risk was low since the publication of the government-funded study.

As it turns out, even the official estimate was optimistic, as Thomas Eric Duncan arrived in Dallas only 18 days later.

We wish that we could be shocked by yet another revelation of incompetence, dishonesty, and blatant disregard for the safety of the American people from the Obama White House, but at this point, we’ve come to expect no less from this president.

Why would he lie? Because this president must downplay the threat of Ebola in order to continue with his number one policy agenda — open borders. An America concerned about Ebola is an America that will demand strict controls on who enters the country.

After the 2014 midterm elections, Congress should have a little more leeway to rein in the lawless and reckless actions of this president, who is clearly more concerned with enacting his own liberal policies than protecting the American people.

After all, chances of Democrats holding on to Senate control are “extremely low,” right Mr. President?

Howard Kurtz: Newest Obama Regime Scandal Could Bring Down President

Massive New Obama Admin Scandal Could Be The One That Brings Down Obama For Good – Western Journalism

.

.
A media reporter with more than 30 years in the business submits that the latest scandal surrounding the Obama administration will not go away so easily because a mainstream outlet is covering it – and because it is easy for everyday Americans to comprehend.

Howard Kurtz, formerly of CNN and now with Fox News, believes the scandals related to Benghazi, the IRS, and the VA did not hold much water because for the most part, they only had “incremental evidence rather than a smoking gun.” But Kurtz asserts the White House scandal involving a prostitute and a presidential advance-team worker in Cartagena, Columbia might be different.

“The Secret Service debacle may be different. And the core of the latest story is easy for average Americans to understand: government officials and hookers.

“Most of the media, as I predicted, moved on after Julia Pierson was forced out as Secret Service chief. But not the Washington Post, which has been leading the pack with a series of exclusives.”

The Post reported Wednesday that White House aides knew a prostitute was an overnight guest in a hotel room of a presidential-advance team member in 2012, even though it was repeatedly denied by several other White House officials, including former Press Secretary Jay Carney.

David Nieland, who conducted the investigation of the incident in Cartegena for the inspector general’s office of Department of Homeland Security (DHS), said he felt pressure from his superiors to keep things under wraps until after the 2012 election.

“We were directed at the time… to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election.”

Kurtz, who worked at The Washington Post himself as well as The Daily Beast/Newsweek and The Bergen Record in northern New Jersey, stressed the origins of the latest heartache for the Obama administration:

“Remember, this is not coming from some GOP congressman or right-wing website. It’s a careful[ly] worded story in a major newspaper whose earlier disclosures about the Secret Service were confirmed to the point that the president had to dump the director.

“Presidents can be unfairly blamed for everything under the sun. No commander-in-chief could single-handedly stop the spread of Ebola and force the Iraqis to effectively fight ISIS.

“But they are expected to run a competent government, and to have their staffs investigate scandals when they inevitably erupt – especially in an agency as sensitive as the Secret Service.

“This story, depending on how it plays out, could spell big trouble.”

DOJ Lawyer: Government Emails Are Backed Up Nightly; IRS Claim That They Were Deleted Is ‘Laughable’

DOJ Lawyer Says Gov’t Emails Are Backed Up Nightly; Calls IRS Claim They Were Deleted ‘Laughable’ – Right Scoop

.

.
Not that there was any doubt, but a Department of Justice lawyer has anonymously contacted Powerline Blog to say why the IRS claim about losing emails because of a computer crash is “laughable”:

I’m a DOJ lawyer, so you obviously cannot use my name or any identifying information. But the idea that a “hard drive crash” somehow destroyed all of Ms. Lerner’s intra-government email correspondence during the period in question [2009-2011] is laughable. Government email servers are backed up every night. So if she actually had a hard drive fail, her emails would be recoverable from the backup. If the backup was somehow also compromised, then we are talking about a conspiracy.

Keep up the good work.

He reiterates in a postscript:

I’m serious about your keeping any identifying information out of the media. Things are very, very bad.

When the story broke on Friday, I really believed this administration was insane to think the story wouldn’t hit the headlines. But if you look at the Sunday morning news shows, not one featured the outrageous stonewalling by the IRS. Let’s hope our political leaders have the courage to pursue this outrageous abuse of power.

Obama Regime Orchestrated Campaign Of Threats And Intimidation Against Servicemen In Bergdahl Cover-Up

Report: WH Orchestrated Campaign Of Threats And Intimidation Against Servicemen To Keep Them Quiet About Bergdahl – Breitbart

.

.
Accusations of threats and intimidation against whistleblowers are a feature, not bug, of the scandal factory known as the Obama administration, and according to a columnist from Huffington Post, SwapGate is no different.

Huffpo columnist Bill Robinson joined Fox and Friends Monday morning with some exclusive info from a Pentagon official. Robinson said the official wanted the American people to know that there’s a bigger story about the Bergdahl swap that isn’t being told – including the claim that servicemen received threats and intimidation from the White House to keep quiet.

Robinson, who has written a series of columns called, “American hero stories” says the official thought he could be trusted with the information.

Robinson told Steve Doocy that “the White House, in concert with the State Department and Defense Department was orchestrating a campaign of threats and intimidation not only against infantrymen and the military men in Afghanistan at the time in 2009, but also against military officers and Pentagon officers to keep silent about what really happened, there.”

“He was more than just a deserter,” Robinson went on to say. “He was an out and out traitor.”

Bergdahl didn’t merely go AWOL, Robinson noted. After expressing his hatred for America and his officers, the private left the base, actively seeking out the enemy. Robinson’s sources contend he collaborated with the enemy during wartime.

Robinson maintains that many more than six soldiers were killed while searching for Bergdahl – who was taken captive on July 2, 2009. In June 2009, there were 24 US servicemen killed in Afghanistan. In the month of July, Robinson notes, “the number jumped to 44 killed – an increase of 83% in a month.” During the next month even more servicemen were killed.

Keep that in mind, while the Obama administration and its acolytes in the media continue their smear campaign to discredit the soldiers who served alongside Bergdahl.

FINALLY! Trey Gowdy To Head Select Committee On Benghazi

Boehner To Appoint Special Benghazi Committee With Trey Gowdy In Charge – Townhall

.

.
After more than two years of stonewalling from the Obama administration, House Speaker John Boehner has confirmed he will appoint a Special Committee to investigate Benghazi with Congressman Trey Gowdy leading the way. The Weekly Standard was the first to report a possible announcement of a Select Committee earlier this morning.

Obama admin defied subpoena, compelling House to establish a new #SelectCommittee on #Benghazi. http://j.mp/1lHAElM

Here is the full statement from Boehner on the Select Committee:

“Americans learned this week that the Obama Administration is so intent on obstructing the truth about Benghazi that it is even willing to defy subpoenas issued by the standing committees of the People’s House. These revelations compel the House to take every possible action to ensure the American people have the truth about the terrorist attack on our consulate that killed four of our countrymen. In light of these new developments, the House will vote to establish a new select committee to investigate the attack, provide the necessary accountability, and ensure justice is finally served.

“The administration’s withholding of documents – emails showing greater White House involvement in misleading the American people – is a flagrant violation of trust and undermines the basic principles of oversight upon which our system of government is built. And it forces us to ask the question, what else about Benghazi is the Obama administration still hiding from the American people?

“The House committees that have been investigating this attack have done extraordinary work, using their subpoena power, holding dozens of hearings, and conducting hundreds of interviews. Without this work we would not know much that we do today. But it’s clear that questions remain, and the administration still does not respect the authority of Congress to provide proper oversight. This dismissiveness and evasion requires us to elevate the investigation to a new level. I intend for this select committee to have robust authority, and I will expect it to work quickly to get answers for the American people and the families of the victims.

“Four Americans died at the hands of terrorists nearly 20 months ago, and we are still missing answers, accountability, and justice. It’s time that change.”
