FBI Raids Home Of Whistleblower Who Had ‘Dirt’ On Clinton Foundation, Mueller

By

More than a dozen FBI agents searched for six hours the house of a contractor who had given Congress and the DOJ documents about the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One scandal, implicating then-FBI director Robert Mueller.

Sixteen agents showed up at the Maryland home of Dennis Nathan Cain on November 19, the Daily Caller reported this week, citing Cain’s attorney Michael Socarras. They demanded to see the documents Cain had already turned over to the Department of Justice inspector-general and the House and Senate intelligence committee.

“I cannot believe the Bureau informed the federal magistrate who approved the search warrant that they wanted to search the home of an FBI whistleblower to seize the information that he confidentially disclosed to the IG and Congress,” said Socarras. He also objected to the fact that the FBI at no point reached out to him, even though Cain provided the agents with his contact information, calling that “serious misconduct.”

FBI spokesman Dave Fitz confirmed to the Daily Caller that the bureau had conducted “court authorized law enforcement activity,” declining to comment further.

The search warrant, signed by federal magistrate Stephanie A. Gallagher in the US District Court for Baltimore, said that Cain possessed “stolen federal property.”

Cain informed the agents that he was a federally protected whistleblower, but gave them the documents at their insistence, Socarras said. Even so, they searched his house for hours afterward.

What were the agents looking for? According to the Daily Caller, they were after the document suggesting that Robert Mueller – now special counsel in charge of the “Russiagate” probe targeting President Donald Trump, but FBI director back in 2001-2013 – failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct in the case of Uranium One.

The Canadian-based mining company controls over 20 percent of the US uranium supply, and was sold to the Russian conglomerate Rosatom in 2010. The sale needed to be approved by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CIFUS), which was chaired by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Since then, multiple whistleblowers have revealed claims of misconduct, bribery and fraud on part of the people involved in the sale, even suggesting a “pay for play” scheme in which the Clinton Foundation received millions of dollars in donations in exchange for greenlighting the deal. Republicans have also pointed to Bill Clinton’s $500,000 fee for a speech in Moscow in 2010 as evidence the Clintons were peddling influence for Russian money.

Democrats have dismissed the apparent scandal as a right-wing conspiracy theory, and Clinton herself called the accusations of wrongdoing “baloney.”

In April this year, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked the Utah-based US Attorney John Huber to investigate both the Uranium One probe and the FBI investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server. That second probe was the subject of a scathing report in June by the DOJ IG Michael Horowitz, the same official to whom Cain gave the documents as a whistleblower. The status of that investigation is currently unknown.

    This should be eye-opening for anyone, but not the least surprising. The Clinton’s charitable foundation has been exposed. It is a scam. Maybe not as big as Bernie Madoff’s ponzi scheme, but it’s big. Not surprisingly, there are widespread governance deficiencies. Missing minutes of meetings. The kind of sloppiness that shows up in scam operations. They hire second-raters, easily manipulated staff to administer the foundation and steamroll them into submission.

    In this report Bill Clinton is described as we know him to be, — a man with an unmanageable appetite and a need for spending whatever it takes to live life large. He is big on the scene in the world’s hot spots with its biggest players, like Jeffrey Epstein. According to one who would know; “Bill Clinton mixes and matches his personal business with that of the foundation. Many people within the foundation have tried to caution him about this but he does not listen, and there really is no talking to him,” said Andrew Kessel, CFO of the foundation.

    Bill Clinton’s always been lazy and unaccomplished apart from politics (just like Obama). His reputation, now 40 years old, precedes him. His psyche is more like an open wound. He finds his purpose in achieving a state of almost pulsating, ungovernable appetite seeking release. And Hillary is no better. Additionally, she, too is not one for the details and is famous for turning all she touches into shit, as Colin Powell said in public.

    There are so many ways in which the strands of corruption over the past few decades, but certainly in the Obama years, are now coming apart at all the seams. These people are living a nightmare as long as Trump is President. And after what they did to him, he is now committed to counterpunching them into prison.
