Dark Web “Kill Order Contract” On President Donald Trump Issued For $150 Million


WhatDoesItMean

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A stunning Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) report circulating in the Kremlin today states that after yesterday’s meeting between Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and President Donald Trump, a “kill order contract” against America’s new leader appeared on the “dark web” offering a payment of 82,900 Bitcoin’s for Trump’s “murder/killing” by the end of this month—and with Bitcoin’s currently being valued at a little over $1,800, amounts to over $150 million being offered for the assassination of an American president. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

According to this report (and virtually unknown to most people), internet search engines (Google, Baidu, Wolframalpha, Yandex, etc.), only show about 1% of what’s actually available online, with the vast majority of websites being found in the “deep web—and which the “dark web” is a smaller subset of, uses masked IP address and needs specialized browsers to access—and is occupied by vast international crime organizations and state-actor intelligence services.

Though not conclusively proved, this report continues, SVR intelligence analysts believe that this “kill order contract” offered against President Trump is from Deep State” conspirators in the United States at war with their new leader—who became incensed after President Trump fired one of their main anti-Trump-“Russian hysteria” commanders, former FBI Director James Comey, and less than 24 hours later, hosted two of Russia’s top diplomats in his White House Oval Office.

FBI Director Comey, this report explains, was the American “Deep State” commander who was tasked with creating, and perpetuating, the false “Russian hysteria” meme against President Trump by using what is now called the “Trump Russia Dossier”—that has been revealed to be a completely made up document created by an American political opposition research company named Fusion GPS and paid for by as yet unidentified Hillary Clinton supporters.

Written entirely by an ex-MI6 (British intelligence) operative named Christopher Steele for the Hillary Clinton campaign he claimed “would sway the election against Trump”, this report says, the “Trump Russia Dossier” was so fabricated out of nonsense that the American magazine Newsweek cited a CIA operation who said “it’s hokey as hell” and one of the most esteemed US journalists, Bob Woodward of the Washington Post, called it “garbage.

Shockingly though, this report notes, FBI Director Comey used this “hokey as hell garbage” “Trump Russia Dossieras evidence he presented to what is called a FISA Court in order to obtain a warrant to listen into and record the phone conversations of then candidate Trump and all of his associates—and that then President Barack Obama signed an extraordinary Executive Order to unmask the names of, distribute throughout the entire “Deep State” apparatus, and then leak to the mainstream propaganda press in order to damage the reputation of Trump.

Equally as astounding (and illegal) as his presenting this “hokey as hell garbage” to a US Federal Court as “evidence” of anything, this report continues, FBI Director Comey even attempted to pay the ex-MI6 operative Christopher Steele another $50,000 of US taxpayer money to continue this “cascade of lies—but that Steele never accepted because of his knowing he made up everything contained in the “Trump Russia Dossier.

While the totally made up “Trump Russia Dossier” was being exposed as a lie, however, this report further explains, FBI Director Comey, again operating for the “Deep State”, added another layer of falsehoods to the “Russia hysteria” movement against Trump by his proclaiming that Russia had hacked into the computer servers of Hillary Clinton and her Democratic Party.

Shockingly though, this report notes, in FBI Director Comey claiming that Russia had hacked into these servers he failed to provide any evidence—with his, instead, relying on a now discredited report prepared by a company controlled by Hillary Clinton named Crowdstrike who said they had discovered “proof” of Russian hacking.

With Hillary Clinton and her Democratic Party claiming that the FBI never even asked to examine the supposed Russian-hacked computers, and the FBI countering that it did ask to examine them but were denied, this report explains, the most crucial fact of this matter not being told to the American people by their propaganda mainstream media is that all of Crowdstrike’s claims of Russia hacking these computers have been discovered to be lies—and who are now, also, refusing to cooperate with the US Congress.

As every single, and absurd, claim that Russia interfered with the 2016 US presidential election now being exposed as completely 100% made up lies, this report says, one must then ask why the American mainstream propaganda media still perpetuates their “Deep State” masters “Russia hysteria” meme—and which SVR intelligence analysts state can only be understood by knowing the facts of Hillary Clinton’s communist mentor Saul Alinsky.

Saul Alinsky, this report explains, aside from being Hillary Clinton’s idol and mentor, is best known for his rule-book manifesto for the communist takeover of America titled “Rules For Radicals”—and whose Rule #13 is now being employed against President Trump and states: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it…cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy…go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.

As being applied by the “Deep State” and its mainstream propaganda media sycophants, this report details, Alinsky’s Rule #13 using the FBI Director ComeyRussia hysteria” meme has, indeed, targeted, frozen, personalized and removed from sympathy among large numbers of the American populace President Trump—who on an hourly basis since his election has been the victim of the largest smear campaign ever instituted against an American president in that nations entire history—to include even the most shocking allegations of him lusting after his own daughter.

To the effect of Alinsky’s Rule #13 as used by the “Deep State” and FBI Director Comey’s Russia hysteria” meme, this report continues, it cannot be underestimated either as a new poll conducted by the Connecticut-based Quinnipiac University shows that “idiot, incompetent and liar” were the most commonly given answers when respondents were asked for the first word that comes to mind when they think about President Trump—with other less-than-flattering descriptors being “buffoon, con-man, clown, narcissistic, bigot and embarrassment”.

As to why the “Deep State” must destroy President Trump, this report explains, is due their communist-leftist economic model for America quickly failing and unable to be supported by the supposed to be president Hillary Clinton—and as evidenced by the stunning world-record $116 billion bankruptcy of the US territory Puerto Rico, the coming bankruptcy of the Connecticut State Capital—and the bankruptcies of Illinois and California now being imminent too.

Not being understood by the American people, SVR intelligence analysts in this report say, is that their present capitalist economy is incompatible with those of socialist-communist ideology—but in order to turn a democracy into a communist state where citizens are reduced to serfdom (enslavement) the health care systems must be nationalized—but will collapse the nation as Soviet Russia discovered.

In knowing this fact, this report continues, the failed attempt to nationalize the United States healthcare system through what is called Obamacare as a first step towards achieving true communist (elite) rule is why the “Deep State” must destroy President Trump—and why the end of this month is so critical as the “swamp continues to be drained”.

The reason this is so, this report explains, is due to what is called cost-sharing reduction payments (CSR’s) that the Obama regime used to pay insurance companies to subsidize their quickly failing nationalized health plan—and that President Obama had to pay for by stealing billons-of-dollars from his nations mortgage loan providers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac whose investors he defrauded.

Under the US Constitution, this report continues explaining, a US president (Executive Branch) is not allowed to spend any money not authorized by the US Congress (Legislative Branch)—and when the Obamacare nationalized health plan scheme was enacted, it failed to provide any money for these CSR payments to insurance companies.

So when President Obama began stealing money from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to pay these insurance companies, this report notes, the US House of Representatives sued him in Federal Court—and where US Federal Judge Rosemary Collyer, of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia, ruled that the Obama regime was, indeed, violating the US Constitution in paying CSR’s to insurance companies.

Though the “Deep State” had fully expected Hillary Clinton to win the presidency, disregard the US Federal Court and continue paying these CSR’s in order to save Obamacare, this report says, upon President Trump assuming office he stated that he would not pay them, and sending the insurance companies into total panic—so much so, in fact, that US insurance giant Aetna just announced yesterday that it was leaving Obamacare after suffering loses between 2014-2017 of nearly $1 trillion.

To how completely bizarre, too, this “Deep State” war against President Trump over Obamacare has become, this report further notes, the US House of Representatives lawsuit against the Obama regime for illegally stealing money to pay for this communist health care scheme was titled “House v. Burwell” due to the Obama regimes Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell being the named lead plaintiff, but has now been changed to “House v. Price” to reflect Tom Price now being Trump’s new Secretary of Health and Human Services—meaning, of course, that President Trump is now locked in an epic battle against his own Republican House over the failed Obamacare health scheme they’ve both vowed to destroy.

Shortly after taking power, though, this report details, both President Trump and the US House of Representatives requested that US Federal Judge Rosemary Collyer stay her ruling against that would destroy Obamacare once and for all—with their stating that they would return to her on 22 May to give her an update as to what they were going to do.

To solve what is truly the only real “Constitutional Crisis” now occurring in America, this report continues, President Trump and the US House of Representatives passed last week what is called the American Health Care Act—that would completely eliminate all cost-sharing reduction payments (CSR’s) to insurance companies thus allowing the “House v. Price” lawsuit to end as Obamacare would be destroyed—and that, also, completely defunds the genocidal black baby-killing organization know as Planned Parenthood.

With President Trump’s and the US House of Representatives American Health Care Act now needed to be passed by the US Senate, and signed by Trump, before it can be made into law, this report explains, if this is not accomplished by 22 May, Trump will most certainly tell his US Justice Department to accept US Federal Judge Rosemary Collyer’s ruling thus destroying Obamacare.

Therefore, this report concludes, not only President Trump, but, also, his “Deep State” enemies are locked in one of the most crucial battles in American history to see who will survive, with Trump’s firing of FBI Director Comey, and less than 24 hours later hosting top Russian officials in his White House Oval Office, proving that he won’t bow down and is unafraid—and with Foreign Minister Lavrov, perhaps, summing up the current state of the US mainstream propaganda media by his stating to them yesterday when asked about the “Russia hysteria” issue: “I can’t believe I’m being asked to answer such a question, especially in the US, where you have a sophisticated democratic political system”.

PM Najib’s Wife Said to Ask US to Call Off FBI Probe

Rosmah pushes Ambassador Yun to ask to fold New York Attorney’s investigation, sources say

rm

Rosmah Mansor, the wife of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, has repeatedly called US Ambassador Joseph Y. Yun and others in the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur in a vain attempt to get the United States Attorney Preet Baharara for the Southern District of New York to call off his investigation into financial dealings involving the scandal-ridden 1Malaysia Development Berhad fund, sources say.

The story of Rosmah’s attempts to rein in the US investigation is circulating widely in Kuala Lumpur’s small diplomatic circles. They say that despite the fact that other investigations are ongoing in Switzerland, Singapore, the United Kingdom and France on another case, they think the Americans most likely to bring charges if there has been wrongdoing.

Yun is said to have told Rosmah that Bharara operates independently of the State Department and the Foreign Service, and that not even President Obama would be able to influence the investigation if he wanted to.

Attempts to verify the story through the US Embassy went unanswered.

“She has been told, ‘If you have done nothing wrong, don’t worry about it,’” a source said. “’The United States is a country of laws. ‘”

That news comes as the Australian Broadcasting Corporation issued a press release saying its Four Corners investigative team tonight (March 28) is to broadcast new details of deposits between 2011 and 2014 from “mysterious individuals and companies”, both in Malaysia and overseas, via wire transfers and in cash, to his personal accounts. That, the news organization said, is in addition to the mysterious US$681 million (RM2.6 billion) that ended up in Najib’s accounts in 2013.

Nonetheless, despite a torrent of international news reports that would classify the 1MDB scandal among the world’s biggest, the Malaysian government has managed to keep the scandal in check domestically even though Swiss authorities have said as much as US$4 billion in 1MDB funds may have been misused. Attorney General Mohamed Apandi Ali, appointed by Najib after the previous attorney general was fired because he was said to be on track to indict Najib, “cleared” the prime minister in a January press conference that convinced almost nobody.

Najib and his family “aren’t scared of anything in Malaysia,” said a longtime observer of local politics. “But they are scared of this guy Preet Bharara.” Indeed, the Pakistani-born law enforcement official’s district has been called by angry defense attorneys “the southern district of the world” given that he has prosecuted nearly 100 Wall Street executives and has sent agents to as many as 25 other countries to investigate suspects of arms and narcotics trafficking and terrorists, bringing them to Manhattan to face charges. It is his office that nailed the rogue Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, where he had been hiding in Thailand, and brought him to justice in the United States.

Opposition figures have been questioning 1MDB’s massive debt since 2010. However, the scandal blew wide open in 2014 when reports circulated that the state-backed investment fund faced as much as RM42 billion (US$10.7 billion at current exchange rates) of unfunded liability.  A cascade of scandals has ensued, ensnaring, among others, Tim Leissner, the former wunderkind Singapore-based chairman of Goldman Sachs’ Southeast Asia operations who has since taken leave and moved to Los Angeles.

It was Leissner who engineered three bond sales in 2012 and 2013 that totaled US$6.5 billion and yielded fees, commissions and expenses for Goldman of almost US$6 billion—9.1 percent of the funds raised, almost twice the normal cuts for investment banks.

US Federal Bureau of Investigation agents have been operating in Kuala Lumpur over the matter, asking officials for details of Leissner’s dealings and other matters.  In addition, the US attorney’s office is said to be looking into money-laundering charges involving the purchase of opulent New York and California properties purchased on the Najib family’s behalf by agents believed to be connected to Jho Taek Low, the flamboyant young Penang-born financier that helped Najib set up 1MDB in the first place. The investigation is also said to encompass the funding of the Hollywood blockbuster Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo di Caprio and produced by Red Granite Productions, partly owned by Rosmah’s son Riza Aziz.  Jho Low, as he is known, is also said to be a target of the investigation. He has been spending much ofhis time in Taiwan or aboard his gigantic yacht, the 91-meter Equanimity.

Najib has operated a marathon campaign to keep office, neutralizing investigations, firing his own deputy prime minister, Muhyiddin Yassin, and the attorney general as well as other law enforcement officials.

The common wisdom in Malaysia today is that Najib will prevail in office at least until elections, which must be called before May of 2018, and, given the state of the opposition, may well remain beyond that time.  A bellwether state election is looming in Sarawak, perhaps as early as mid-April although it isn’t constitutionally necessary until September.  At the moment, according to political analysts in Kuala Lumpur, the Barisan Nasional holds an overwhelming lead in the polls, thus the possible decision to call for an early snap election.

If the March 27 Grand Coalition held in Kuala Lumpur is any indicator, there appears little impetus for the opposition to bring down the Barisan Nasional, the national ruling coalition led by the United Malays National Organization.  The meeting, organized by former Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim, has called for 1 million signatures to be compiled against Najib by next year.

“It’s a good idea in theory,” said a Kuala Lumpur-based lawyer. “But they need a million signatures by tomorrow, not next year.”

Other sources said that despite the attendance of perhaps 1,000 members of opposition groups, NGOs and other parties, with former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in the lead, there is no traction between them.  They will all end up fighting with each other, with the only glue welding the movement together being the desire to get rid of the Barisan Nasional. One questioned why, for instance, those arrested in the 1987 crackdown Operation Lalang by Mahathir would be at all interested at all interested in cooperating with Mahathir.

That, the source said, includes Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, the wife of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim. The former premier engineered Anwar’s imprisonment in 1999 on what were universally condemned as spurious charges of sexual deviance and abuse of power after the two fell out.  Others arrested and prevented from contesting 2000 elections, were Vice President Tian Chua, N.Gobalakrishnan, Youth leader Mohd Ezam Mohd Nor, Mohamad Azmin Ali – jnow the Selangor chief minister – as well as, Fairus Izuddin and Badrul Amin Baharun.

Apple: Offered help to search #MH370 within an hour of disappearance


FirstSpot.Com

 
By tech2 News Staff /  02 Mar 2016 , 10:29
.

As a part of the ongoing San Bernardino iPhone encryption debate with the FBI, Apple General Counsel Bruce Sewell reportedly told the members of the House Judiciary Committee that the company had offered technical assistance to investigators to help search for the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, that went missing in 2014.

According to a report by 9to5Mac, Louisiana representative Cedric Richmond used the example of a phone that had the location of a nuclear bomb on it. “If there is terrorist, and he’s put the location of a nuclear bomb on his phone, and he dies, how long would it take Apple to develop the technology to find out where the bomb is? Or would Apple not be able to develop the technology to tell us in a short period of time?,” he asked.

In line with details regarding Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Sewell stated that Apple started working with officials without an hour to help find the missing plane. He said, “When the Malaysia airline went down, within one hour of that plane being declared missing, we had Apple operators corroborating with telephone providers all over the world, with the airlines, and with the FBI to try to find a ping. To try to find some way to locate that plane.”

This information is rather surprising as now many were aware of Apple’s involvement in searching for the missing flight. At the moment, Apple is entangled with the FBI in a controversial debate which requires them to crack the security on an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters.

McAfee: I Will Decrypt Information on the San Bernardino Phone For Free


TruthMedia

Using an obscure law, written in 1789 — the All Writs Act — the US government has ordered Apple to place a back door into its iOS software so the FBI can decrypt information on an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters.

It has finally come to this. After years of arguments by virtually every industry specialist that back doors will be a bigger boon to hackers and to our nation’s enemies than publishing our nuclear codes and giving the keys to all of our military weapons to the Russians and the Chinese, our government has chosen, once again, not to listen to the minds that have created the glue that holds this world together.

This is a black day and the beginning of the end of the US as a world power. The government has ordered a disarmament of our already ancient cybersecurity and cyberdefense systems, and it is asking us to take a walk into that near horizon where cyberwar is unquestionably waiting, with nothing more than harsh words as a weapon and the hope that our enemies will take pity at our unarmed condition and treat us fairly.

Any student of world history will tell you that this is a dream. Would Hitler have stopped invading Poland if the Polish people had sweetly asked him not to do so? Those who think yes should stand strongly by Hillary Clinton’s side, whose cybersecurity platform includes negotiating with the Chinese so they will no longer launch cyberattacks against us.

The FBI, in a laughable and bizarre twist of logic, said the back door would be used only once and only in the San Bernardino case.

Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, replied:

The government suggests this tool could only be used once, on one phone. But that’s simply not true. Once created, the technique could be used over and over again, on any number of devices. In the physical world, it would be the equivalent of a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks — from restaurants and banks to stores and homes. No reasonable person would find that acceptable.

The government is asking Apple to hack our own users and undermine decades of security advancements that protect our customers — including tens of millions of American citizens — from sophisticated hackers and cybercriminals. The same engineers who built strong encryption into the iPhone to protect our users would, ironically, be ordered to weaken those protections and make our users less safe.

No matter how you slice this pie, if the government succeeds in getting this back door, it will eventually get a back door into all encryption, and our world, as we know it, is over. In spite of the FBI’s claim that it would protect the back door, we all know that’s impossible. There are bad apples everywhere, and there only needs to be in the US government. Then a few million dollars, some beautiful women (or men), and a yacht trip to the Caribbean might be all it takes for our enemies to have full access to our secrets.

Cook said:

The FBI may use different words to describe this tool, but make no mistake: Building a version of iOS that bypasses security in this way would undeniably create a backdoor. And while the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control.

The fundamental question is this: Why can’t the FBI crack the encryption on its own? It has the full resources of the best the US government can provide.

With all due respect to Tim Cook and Apple, I work with a team of the best hackers on the planet. These hackers attend Defcon in Las Vegas, and they are legends in their local hacking groups, such as HackMiami. They are all prodigies, with talents that defy normal human comprehension. About 75% are social engineers. The remainder are hardcore coders. I would eat my shoe on the Neil Cavuto show if we could not break the encryption on the San Bernardino phone. This is a pure and simple fact.

And why do the best hackers on the planet not work for the FBI? Because the FBI will not hire anyone with a 24-inch purple mohawk, 10-gauge ear piercings, and a tattooed face who demands to smoke weed while working and won’t work for less than a half-million dollars a year. But you bet your ass that the Chinese and Russians are hiring similar people with similar demands and have been for many years. It’s why we are decades behind in the cyber race.

Cyberscience is not just something you can learn. It is an innate talent. The Juilliard school of music cannot create a Mozart. A Mozart or a Bach, much like our modern hacking community, is genetically created. A room full of Stanford computer science graduates cannot compete with a true hacker without even a high-school education.

So here is my offer to the FBI. I will, free of charge, decrypt the information on the San Bernardino phone, with my team. We will primarily use social engineering, and it will take us three weeks. If you accept my offer, then you will not need to ask Apple to place a back door in its product, which will be the beginning of the end of America.

If you doubt my credentials, Google “cybersecurity legend” and see whose name is the only name that appears in the first 10 results out of more than a quarter of a million.

John McAfee is currently running for president as a Libertarian.

FBI Investigated Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for Espionage


“Quashed case” mystery solved: culprit is once again secret Israeli intervention\

ADL_lehrer_foxman2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the infamous “Anti-Defamation League (ADL) files controversy“  in which the ADL was discovered infiltrating, spying on and otherwise violating the privacy rights of a large number of anti-Apartheid, civil-rights and peace groups through the unlawful acquisition of private data from corrupt local law enforcement officials.

The single best retrospective is from long-time Middle East analyst and broadcaster Jeffrey Blankfort, who was also among those targeted by the ADL (see, “The Strange History of the Anti Defamation League: ADL Spies“).

Many Americans were outraged in 1993 after reading mainstream press accounts of a vast national ADL spy network with organelles passing information not only to Israel’s Mossad but also Apartheid South African intelligence services—possibly resulting in the mysterious death of Chris Hani and the rushed deportation/detention of many Palestinians.  Declassified FBI files newly reveal not only the flood of constituent letters pouring into Congress and the FBI’s unfulfilled assurances that justice would be served, but the ADL’s use of proven tactics that the Israel lobby has deployed since the 1940′s to skirt accountability for major criminal violations. The FBI files, originally scheduled for declassification in 2038, were suddenly released to IRmep under the Freedom of Information Act on November 20, 2013 and may now be browsed and downloaded from the Israel Lobby Archive.  It is a timely release since one of Israel’s most harmful spies, Arnon Milchan, is openly boasting about his criminal exploits and Americans may soon demand not only that unsuccessful old law enforcement tactics be retired but new strategies be fielded to punish Israel lobby wrongdoers and end their long stint of immunity.

ADL stalls for time

ADL_es4A March 16, 1993 memo launched the ADL espionage investigation from the FBI’s Los Angeles office.  The FBI discovered “unidentified individuals at the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in possession of [Federal] Bureau [of Investigation] classified information” along with “confidential police reports and files belonging to the San Francisco Police Department” after the ADL’s Los Angeles and San Francisco offices were raided and searched under warrant.  Until that time, Israel was interested in preserving close economic and military ties (including nuclear weapons sales pitches) to Apartheid South Africa. The ADL, in constant contact with the Israeli consulate which frequently tasked it for help, was eager to pitch in.  The FBI discovered one of its own files possessed by ADL’s Los Angeles division was “a summary of activities relating to the African National Congress (ANC).” The FBI immediately noticed the ADL—which had invested decades securing a forced relationship with the FBI by lobbying top elected officials—was suddenly “uncooperative” and stalling for time. By month’s end, Israel’s “heavy guns” had been drawn to snuff out the fledgling investigation.

Israeli generals visit the U.S. attorney general

The FBI already had a long, unhappy history of outside interference in its Israel espionage and smuggling investigations, and the ADL files affair was no exception.  In the 1940s, the FBI had seen the sudden collapse of a pipeline of indictments against hundreds of Americans illegally smuggling conventional weapons to Jewish fighters in Palestine funded by Jewish Agency paymasters operating out of New York.  The intervention of Abraham Feinberg, a major campaign contribution bundler and Israeli government officials proved too much for the Justice Department, which even as evidence continued to pile up, it failed to prosecute and dodged civic demands for justice.

A March 31, 1993 FBI memo reveals “two persons, described as ‘Israeli Generals’ are in or are about to travel to Washington, D.C…the purpose of their travel is to try to visit the Attorney General to press for an end to the FBI’s investigations…The FBI’s investigations of these matters are causing a great deal of interference in the U.S. activities of the Anti-Defamation League…and so Israel is seeking to intercede on the ADL’s behalf.”

Americans urge due process

Mailbags of letters to Congress were forwarded to the FBI and attorney general urging the swift criminal prosecution of the ADL.  Robert Kerrey, John McCain, Richard Lugar, Hank Brown, Jill Long, Dennis De Concini, and Ernest Hollings, while often distancing themselves from the substance of the complaints, dutifully forwarded the outraged letters.  The FBI’s Legislative Counsel Charles E. Mandigo reviewed demands to prosecute both the ADL and “a former San Francisco police officer and former CIA agent [Thomas Gerard]” who “sold police information on Arab Americans to agents of the Mossad.”  Mandigo assured them “the FBI will actively seek prosecution of any individuals or any enterprise discovered to be involved in illegal activity in violation of federal statutes….”  However, like earlier constituents that in the 1960’s demanded another Israel lobbying organization, the American Zionist Council, be registered as an Israeli foreign agent, they were all in for a huge disappointment.

Turnover

ADL_es2After interviewing a disgruntled former ADL “fact finder” librarian who had curated information and worked with long-time ADL undercover contractor Roy Bullock, the FBI quickly focused in on ADL Regional Director David Lehrer as the prime suspect for acquiring and passing classified FBI files throughout the ADL.  The FBI LA office requested several times that the FBI director authorize a formal interview with Lehrer.  But FBI Director William Sessions, a holdover from the Reagan administration, left in July of 1993.  Acting director Floyd Clarke took no action before leaving on September 1.  Not until September 23, 1993 did the Clinton administration’s new FBI Director Louis Freeh authorize special agent in command Edward J. Curran the only interview that could possibly lead to a prosecution:  “personally interview David Lehrer, Regional Director – ADL – Los Angeles….The interview is to be conducted according to FCIM 65-5.1 guidelines, and recorded on an FD-302 in the event this matter warrants possible prosecution.” 

But it was much too late. Israel already had half a year to lobby for closure. On December 1, 1993, Israeli Justice Minister David Libai met for an hour with Attorney General Janet Reno. Libai spent thirty minutes on a futile attempt to secure Reno’s recommendation to President Clinton that Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard’s sentence be commuted.  What Libai did for the remaining thirty minutes of the “private” meeting was not disclosed, but on March 22, 1994 the FBI’s Los Angeles office indicated it was closing the ADL espionage investigation—apparently without ever having interviewed Lehrer.  By April, Janet Reno was gushing over the ADL’s latest report on militias and the FBI-ADL uncomfortable “special relationship”—first ordered by J. Edgar Hoover and later renewed by FBI director William Webster—was seemingly back on track.

Fire “wrong-doers” but continue activities

ADL_es2lib_renoUntil this file declassification and release, it was never clear to outsiders whether the FBI had properly investigated ADL’s illegal circulation of its classified files.  Only now can the ADL “files controversy” formally enter the pantheon of “Israel lobby criminal investigations that were improperly closed.”  The 1993 incident bears uncanny similarities to the 2005 AIPAC espionage affair, in which a Defense Department official and two AIPAC employees where indicted under the Espionage Act for circulating classified national defense information in an unsuccessful attempt to foment a U.S. attack on Iran.  AIPAC jettisoned Steven J. Rosen and Keith Weismann for conduct that “did not comport with standards that AIPAC expects of its employees.”—despite the fact that the pair engaged in activities long rewarded by AIPAC.  Its actions suggest AIPAC wanted to prevent a fatal criminal indictment of the entire organization.  Obama administration Justice Department officials quashed the criminal prosecution shortly after taking office in 2009.  Like AIPAC, ADL National Director Abraham Foxman fired a “shocked and dismayed” Lehrer in 2002, but without explanation.  Although at the time many speculated that the termination was the ADL national office’s effort to prevent the increasingly autonomous West Coast offices from splitting off, it also could have been the delayed fulfillment of a non-prosecution agreement in order to finally close the “ADL files controversy.”  Only Abraham Foxman and the Justice Department know for sure. 

ADL_es1bar_holdThe ADL files controversy is not only similar to the 2005 AIPAC espionage affair but also an earlier 1985 espionage investigation of AIPAC for acquiring classified trade information.  The very solid FBI investigation was suddenly cut short and terminated, presumably after the capitulation of a heavily-lobbied attorney general. In the end, the Reagan Administration did not allow the FBI or public to know who in the International Trade Commission subverted due process by passing a compilation of secret industry data of seventy American groups opposed to unilateral trade concessions to Israeli Minister of Economics Dan Halpern and AIPAC. Yet another 1960’s effort to regulate Israel lobbying by properly registering front groups as Israeli foreign agents similarly collapsed after JFK’s assassination when the Justice Department leadership inevitably underwent rapid turnover.

De facto Immunity

It is little wonder that Israeli spy Arnon Milchan is now so openly boasting about his years spent pilfering American nuclear weapons technology while working as a successful Hollywood movie producer.  Yet another suspected Israeli spy, fugitive financier Marc Rich, benefitted greatly when Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder (today the attorney general) was successfully lobbied by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak to recommend a 2001 Clinton presidential pardon.  History is unequivocal that all it takes is a few calls to the ever-compliant attorney general for a visiting delegation of Israeli government officials to subvert rule of law in America.
