HORROR: Podesta Caught Holding Secret Meeting, This Is Nasty

(Christian News Alerts) – The Democrat joy over the Robert Mueller indictments for former Trump campaign officials was immediately tempered when John and Tony Podesta were named in the indictments as well.

Now, John Podesta, the former campaign chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential run in 2016, has been tied to Fusion GPS and the discredited Trump Dossier compiled by the firm.

Even worse, Podesta may be guilty of perjury.

All of these accusations stem from a report released by a former Podesta employee who claims that Podesta met with Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of Fusion GPS, to discuss the firm’s then-ongoing investigation of Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

This meeting immediately called Podesta’s recent testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee into question, for Podesta said that he did not know who paid Fusion GPS for the now discredited dossier.

According to a report by the New York Times, Podesta’s meeting with Fusion GPS indicates how closely the Clinton campaign worked with the “opposition research” firm, although the Times article does not state whether or not Simpson and Podesta explicitly talked about the dossier — or the research found by Fusion.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign contributed as much as $1 million towards the creation of the dossier.

Marc Elias, the Clinton campaign lawyer employed by the law firm Perkins Coie, also told the Senate that he did not know about contributions to Fusion GPS. This was also a lie, for Perkins Coie was used by the Clinton campaign to funnel money to Fusion GPS, which in turn gave $168,000 to former MI6 agent Christopher Steele as payment for creating the document.

Along with John’s troubles, brother Tony Podesta has been forced to step down as CEO from his own lobbying firm after Mueller’s investigation team revealed that the Podesta brothers worked alongside Paul Manafort in order to support a pro-Russian Ukrainian president.

The Podestas, Manafort, and others are accused of working for a Ukrainian non-profit that engaged in money laundering and other illegal tactics until 2014.

The Podesta Group, once one of the most powerful organizations in Washington, looks like it is on the verge of closing its doors for good. Some former associates have even told the press that the Podesta name is shunned throughout the city because of Mueller’s corruption allegations.

John Podesta may also find future work in American politics difficult not only because of the new perjury allegations, but also because his hardline stance against Russia belies the fact that he made millions off of a Kremlin-backed company.

Furthermore, the leaked DNC emails from Podesta’s Gmail account show that the former campaign manager is unethical, and his handling of the Clinton campaign has been justifiably criticized.

For Democrats, the news of the Podesta downfall is troubling, even if the Clinton machine seems to be on its last legs. Looking from the outside, especially in light of former DNC chair Donna Brazile’s recent allegations, it seems clear that the Democrats have to remove Clinton’s toxic brand from the party.

This means that a major Democrat purge is needed.

ALERT ALERT

OMG!! -> Government Now Wants To Seize Your Car For Going 5MPH Over The Limit

We’ve discussed this on and off for several years now. Civil asset forfeiture is a legal process that allows the government to seize assets and cash from citizens without any due process or judicial oversight.

You don’t even have to be charged with a crime. You are assumed guilty unless you can somehow prove your innocence.

Of course, not everyone has this ability… if you aren’t local, state, or federal law enforcement, this is called stealing, and you go to prison.

But the government is actually a bigger problem than common thieves.

A 2015 report showed that law enforcement used civil asset forfeiture to steal more from US residents than every thief, robber, and burglar in America combined.

About $4.5 BILLION worth of cash, cars, homes, and other property is taken by civil asset forfeiture each year – hundreds of millions more than common criminals steal.

And it happens at every level. Your local cop can use civil asset forfeiture just like your state trooper. And then any one of the armed agents of the US government—from the FBI to the Fish and Wildlife Service—can rob you for whatever reason they want.

This travesty continues to grow because the cops who take your stuff get to keep it. Police departments and government agencies around the country depend on civil asset forfeiture to boost their budgets.

Cops will literally keep some of the cars they take as squad cars. And they make a fortune auctioning off the houses, boats, and anything else they confiscate.

Obviously this gives cops an incentive to steal, whether or not they actually think the property was used in a crime, or acquired illegally. Remember, civil asset forfeiture adds billions every year to their bottom line.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in a case of civil asset forfeiture.

Tyson Timbs was convicted of selling a small amount of drugs to an undercover police officer. He was sentenced to house arrest, and paid about $1,200 in fines.

But then police used civil asset forfeiture to take his $42,000 Land Rover which Timbs purchased with money from a life insurance policy after his father died. The money did not come from selling drugs, or any other illegal activity.

Timbs sued, and the case made its way to the Supreme Court, because every lower court in Indiana said the forfeiture was perfectly legit.

The case revolves around whether or not the seizure of the Land Rover was an excessive fine under the 8th amendment, and whether or not this protection against excessive fines applies to state governments.

And the public got some crazy insight into the government’s position.

The Indiana Solicitor General was arguing in favor of civil asset forfeiture when Justice Stephen Breyer asked him a hypothetical.

Breyer asked, if a state needs revenue, could it force someone to forfeit their Bugatti, Mercedes, or Ferrari for speeding? Even if they were going just 5 miles per hour over the speed limit?

And the utterly appalling answer from the Indiana Solicitor General was, yes.

That’s right… the official government position is that they can steal any amount of your property in “connection” with any crime whatsoever, no matter how trivial the crime may be… even exceeding the speed limit by 5 miles per hour.

This is how overbearing and authoritarian the government has become in the land of the free.

This is how much power your local cop has… and the power only grows as you go to state, and federal officials.

If there is any solace in any of this, it is that the other Supreme Court Justices were reportedly laughing at this exchange.

The justices seemed incredulous that Indiana’s top lawyer was using such absurd assertions and flimsy reasoning in his arguments.

So, for now, we can keep our cars if we get pulled over for speeding. But that may not always be the case…

Depending on how this is ruled, it could pave the way for even more egregious abuses of power… or it could curb the practice, and reign in these thieves in uniforms.

Just understand where the government is coming from. These politicians, bureaucrats and officers think they can do whatever they want. Absolutely anything goes, with no limitation whatsoever.

And that makes it a little tough to feel like you really live in the land of the free.
