EXCLUSIVE=> Democrat Tim Canova on Wasserman Schultz: Corrupt Dems Cling to Office to Avoid Jail

Published

Democratic leaders like Broward County election supervisor Brenda Snipes and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz are “clinging to office” to dodge investigations and stay out of jail, warns Tim Canova, a Nova Southeastern University law professor who is challenging the disgraced former DNC chair for her congressional seat in 2018.

Canova won a significant legal victory Friday when a circuit judge determined Snipes broke federal law by improperly discarding thousands of ballots cast in the 2016 Democratic congressional primary, making an inspection of the results impossible.

In that election, Canova faced off against incumbent Wasserman Schultz, who has been embroiled in controversy after controversy since the 2016 elections.

The judge ruled that Snipes ignored and illegally obstructed Canova’s request to copy and inspect the ballots. In fact, Snipes had signed a Sept. 1, 2017, document to destroy the ballots.

Federal laws stipulate ballots cast in a federal race are not supposed to be destroyed until 22 months after the election.

Corrupt politicians like Snipes and Wasserman Schultz don’t care at all about the American taxpayer and only want to stay in office to evade justice, Canova told The Gateway Pundit Wednesday.

“Wasserman Schultz, Snipes and other agent Democrats, maybe even some Republicans, cling to office because there is so much corruption in their background that they’re afraid that should they leave office it will be uncovered,” he said. “As long as they remain in office, they might be in a position to control, manipulate or prevent any investigations.”

Wasserman Schultz resigned as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee following revelations that she and other Democratic party officials conspired to sabotage the campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

The former DNC chair is also the most forceful advocate and longtime employer of disgraced House information technology aide Imran Awan. She continued to employ and compensate Awan with taxpayer funds for several months after he was barred from the House computer system and under criminal investigation. In fact, Wasserman Schultz only fired Awan after he was arrested on bank fraud charges attempting to flee the country the morning of July 25, 2017.

Awan is currently on trial before a federal jury for conspiracy to commit bank fraud, false statements on a loan or credit application, unlawful monetary transactions,  engaging in unlawful monetary transactions and  allegedly stole data from an untold Democratic House members who hired him.

Wasserman Schultz doesn’t care at all about the American people, she only wants to stay in office because she’s a crook, Canova argued

“I have hopes that Debbie Wasserman Schultz will be removed from office this year when we defeat her in November, and that even before that happens, some of the investigations will start catching up with her – this is the reason she’s clinging for office so strongly, this is why she’s trying to hold on to this office.”

The Justice Department is remarkably apathetic to Democratic corruption, Canova lamented.

“I don’t know to what degree the FBI or Department of Justice have both been corrupted. I’ve called the FBI twice myself personally earlier this year to report this crime — destroying the ballots. I have yet to get any kind of response from them,” he said. “What the supervisor did wasn’t just to break state and federal law by destroying the ballots three months early, but she also destroyed evidence in an ongoing litigation. There are all forms of law that were broken by her.”

The federal statue has criminal sanctions – up to a year in prison. I think the state law punishes this crime with even more than a year in prison. We haven’t been able to get any kind of investigation from the Department of Justice yet – the FBI – nobody,” he continued. “We knew that the supervisor of elections destroyed the ballots in violation of federal law all the way back in early November of 2017. We are trying to hold the officials accountable who are responsible for this. We’d like to see an investigation, including criminal investigation. A criminal investigation, perhaps, could uncover others involved.”

Florida’s Secretary of State plans to send an elections expert to Broward, the state’s second-largest county, during the upcoming elections to monitor the administration of upcoming elections in the county and “ensure that all laws are followed.”

Canova is urging Florida governor Rick Scott to move to immediately suspend Snipes and is calling for a federal, criminal investigation.

“We are not easing up on this. We are organizing petitions, a protest and we are not going to let up at all,” he said. “I’m a candidate again, this time as an independent, I’ll be on the ballot in November, and the idea, the thought that Brenda Snipes, this supervisor of elections, could still be supervising my upcoming election with Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is completely intolerable.”

Canova compared Snipes’ ability to destroy ballots without legal repercussions to the DNC destroying its server, ignoring multiple requests by the FBI to surrender the server for forensic examination.

“The FBI asked for those servers three times, and three times the DNC declined to cooperate. The FBI should have followed up by just seizing the servers – they have that authority in a criminal investigation. The idea that they would just rely upon CrowdStrike, a private internet security firm hired by Wasserman Schultz through the DNC, is ridiculous,” he said. “There has been absolutely no response from the criminal justice system to this violation of federal law.

“This whole episode with the ballots has shown the kind of corruption that exists in our election system. It’s also revealed a certain type of corruption in our criminal justice system. And the supervisor’s office continued to litigate for eight months, even after destroying the ballots.”

Canova announced in April his decision to leave the Democratic Party and hopes to appear on the November ballot as a no party affiliation candidate against Wasserman Schultz.

 

Most Democrats are also fed up with corruption on the Democratic side, Canvoa argued.

“I have a lot of friends who remain loyal Democrats – their loyalty is tested very often. There are an awful lot of people who remain Democrat, who are disgusted by the Democratic establishment. They just don’t think that there is any other alternative and they are very frightened by the policy agenda of the Republicans and the Trump administration,” he said. “The party leadership in Broward county, and really all over the country, is very corrupted. They are corporate-funded and they’ve allowed themselves to be corrupted.”

Reps. Meadows and Jordan Lash Out at Rosenstein For Demanding Special “Classified” Format to Testify on Capitol Hill

Published

on

By

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) lashed out at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Friday afternoon over his demands for a special format to testify next week on Capitol Hill.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte announced Thursday that Rosenstein will appear on Capitol Hill October 24th for a closed-door, transcribed interview.

Rosenstein is demanding the interview be private and held in a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility) with multiple Republican lawmakers excluded.

Unfortunately only the House Judiciary and Oversight Chairs and ranking members will be present for the grilling.

According to the House Judiciary announcement, only 4 members from the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees will be present:

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) announced Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will appear on October 24, 2018, for a transcribed interview conducted by Chairmen Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy and Ranking Members Jerry Nadler and Elijah Cummings.

JIM JORDAN: Rod Rosenstein wants a SPECIAL format to testify: only 2 Rep and 2 Dem members of Congress asking questions in closed door classified setting.


Another example of the double standard. One set of rules for regular folks, a different set for the politically connected. Unacceptable.

MARK MEADOWS: Rod Rosenstein declines to show up before Congress and then asks for special treatment. He wants his interview to be private, in a SCIF, with multiple members excluded.

There should be NO double standard. Show up and tell the truth under the same conditions as everyone else.

Meadows and Jordan want to ask Rod Rosenstein about his plot to wear a wire and oust Trump from office.

Former FBI lawyer James Baker appeared on Capitol Hill earlier Thursday for the second time to testify about Rosenstein’s plan to wear a wire and and the use of FISA warrants to oust President Trump from office.

Rep. Meadows emerged from the testimony Thursday calling for Rosenstein to “resign immediately.”

This is yet more proof that there is a two-tiered justice system in this country.

Caravan reaches Mexican border, breaks through fence on Guatemalan side

Published

on

By

The migrant caravan reached the southern border of Mexico Thursday night and NBC News reports some have already crossed the border. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal described the situation along the Mexican border as tense:

Tension was palpable in Ciudad Hidalgo, a tiny tropical village in Mexico surrounded by rain forest and banana plantations that borders Tecun Uman in Guatemala, with the two towns separated by a muddy river. Late Thursday, some 300 Mexican federal police officers equipped with antiriot gear were deployed to the border crossing ahead of the caravan’s expected arrival…

Many migrants marched along the river banks on Thursday afternoon. “Let them know that we are going to cross to Mexico!” shouted a man clad with a cap in front of the crowd.

The border between Mexico and Guatemala (at this location) is the Suchiate River. Here’s what that looks like from the bridge spanning the river:

There are gates on both sides of the bridge to control traffic. Buzzfeed’s Karla Zabs is there covering developments this morning. A short time ago the caravan began massing at the Guatemalan gate:

And that led to a standoff. The AP reports that “young men” eventually tore open the barricade and swarmed onto the bridge:

Migrants in a caravan traveling through Central America have broken down gates at a border crossing and are streaming toward a bridge to Mexico.

After arriving at the tall, yellow metal fence Friday, some clambered atop it and on U.S.-donated military jeeps.

Young men began violently tugging on the barrier and finally succeeded in tearing it down.

Men, women and children then rushed through toward the bridge, about 150 yards (137 meters) away.

This tweet translates as “Bombshell! Thousands of Hondurans manage to enter Mexican territory!”

The Noticias video below helps explain the sequence of events. This is a live stream but you can scroll back. First people were massed at the yellow gates on the Guatemalan side of the bridge. Then they broke through those gates and streamed onto the bridge as seen in that clip above. The migrants made their way to the Mexican side of the bridge and, at first, it appeared the gates were open, but they were pushed closed by police with riot shields.

A shoving match ensued between the police and the migrants trying to re-open the gates. Some migrants are throwing things at the police and the police appear to be using batons to keep people’s hands off the gates. Finally, when the gate is shut, you see some men jumping off the bridge into the water where they swim to a nearby raft.

Stalemate, at least for the moment:

I’ll update this post when the situation changes.

MANU RAJU: Very rare bipartisan agreement: Both sides say Nellie Ohr interview has been led to nothing. She invoked marital privilege preventing her from answering qs about talks with her husband. @MarkMeadows sees no reason to bring her back. @CongressmanRaja calls it a “nothing burger”

Rep. Mark Meadows confirmed Nellie Ohr invoked spousal privilege. 

The House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees sought to question Nellie Ohr after her husband Bruce Ohr gave an explosive testimony to Congress.


The former Associate Deputy Attorney General told Congress the FBI knew his wife, Nellie Ohr worked for oppo research firm Fusion GPS yet failed to disclose that information to the FISC [Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court].

Nellie Ohr was paid multiple large payments by Fusion GPS, the oppo research firm that commissioned dossier author Christopher Steele.
