New lawsuit claims that Donald Trump worked with Fox News to concoct story that Hillary Clinton had DNC staffer murdered. Update!

That guy on the left is Jay Sekulow, Trump's attorney.
Courtesy of Bloomberg: 

President Donald Trump collaborated with Fox News to concoct a story claiming a Democratic National Committee staffer was killed in retaliation for furnishing information damaging to Hillary Clinton to Wikileaks, according to a lawsuit by a private investigator for the slain man’s family.

Rod Wheeler -- the investigator, a former Washington police detective, and an occasional Fox News contributor -- claims in his lawsuit that the president read the Fox story before it was published and suggested the insertion of quotes falsely attributed to Wheeler supporting the story’s premise. Trump wanted the story published to divert attention from the widening investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia, Wheeler claims.

The complaint’s first paragraph includes screen shot of a May 14 text message to Wheeler from another Fox News contributor that reads: “Not to add any more pressure but the president just read the article. He wants the article out immediately. It’s now all up to you. but don’t feel the pressure." 

Seth Rich was killed on a Washington street in the middle of the night last year. The crime remains unsolved. The story was published on May 16 and later retracted by the network, according to the complaint. 

Fox News didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

So just mull that over in your mind a little.

Donald Trump worked with is propaganda outlet, Fox News, to frame Hillary Clinton and the DNC for murder.

And the really troubling part is.....I'm not surprised.

Nor am I surprised by this:
There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING, that these people are unwilling to do to gain, or retain, power.

Here is a response from Fox News:  

Wheeler alleges Fox News and the Trump supporter intended to deflect public attention from growing concern about the administration's ties to the Russian government. His suit charges that a Fox News reporter created quotations out of thin air and attributed them to him to propel her story. 

Fox's president of news, Jay Wallace, told NPR on Monday that there was no "concrete evidence" that Wheeler was misquoted by the reporter, Malia Zimmerman. The news executive did not address a question about the story's allegedly partisan origins. Fox News declined to allow Zimmerman to comment for this story.

There is "no concrete evidence." Well that's an interesting way to phrase it.

And the fact that they declined to comment on Trump's participation in pushing this narrative speaks volumes.

Update: Okay here is a more aggressive denial from Fox News:
Gee, if only we trusted the word of Fox News.

Update 2:
 Okay so we are now asked to believe that once Spicey read this news that it did not find it's way to Donald Trump.

    REPORT: 12-Year-Old Trump Rape Victim ‘Maria’ Alive and Talking

    1. I have important breaking news about "Maria" who according to this account was sexually assaulted by Donald Trump.



    1. Anonymous2:12 PM

      'About a month ago I came across a Mother Jones article about Trump’s modeling agency and its treatment of a young, largely immigrant workforce. The story was, in a way the height of irony-here was a man who built an entire campaign on his hard-line stance against immigrants, and all the while his business was committing full-scale immigration fraud. But as I read on, I was struck by how much this all resembled the business model of sex trafficking-something I have researched and written about extensively.'

  6. Anonymous9:10 AM

    Jane Doe mentioned another 12-year-old girl who went by the name “Maria”, and claimed that Trump had threatened her by saying that if she tells anyone about the sexual abuse that she had been subject too, she would “disappear like Maria.” Apparently 12-year-old Maria was no longer seen at the parties which Epstein and Trump had been holding.

    Many people wrote off Jane Doe’s claims, saying that unless there was factual evidence to back up the existence of “Maria”, there was no legitimate corroboration to reaffirm Doe’s allegations.

    Now, according to reports by Former White House Staffer, and veteran of 3 presidential campaign, Claude Taylor, Maria is still alive and well, and better yet, she’s given a video interview to a major broadcast network. Taylor tweeted the following this morning:

    If you didn’t know much about international finance, you probably didn’t see the journalistic project known as The Panama Papers as a retaliatory move against Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Wikileaks did immediately. Although the tweet was since deleted, the political warfare operation took to Russia Today to complain that the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists wasn’t being ethical about their leaks, which made Vladimir Putin look corrupt. Somewhere between Rossiya Bank, Cyprus, and Panama, Putin had around $2 billion dollars stashed away.

    Courtesy of The Guardian, this handy graph depicts the flow of what investor Bill Browder recently testified to be money stolen from the Russian people themselves.

    Two of the former generals in Donald Trump’s cabinet made a private agreement that one of them had to always be in the United States to babysit their boss, according to a new report.

    Secretary of Defense James Mattis and John Kelly, who was secretary of Homeland Security and is now Trump’s chief of staff, were involved in the agreement, according to the Associated Press.

    The report said the arrangement was made so one of them could “keep tabs on the orders rapidly emerging from the White House” in the early days of Trump’s presidency.

    Trump has surrounded himself with a number of generals, so the revelation that they don’t trust him even after he has elevated them is troubling.

    WSJ: DEA Sent Agency-Wide Memo After Trump ‘Condoned Police Misconduct’

    The nation’s top narcotics officer repudiated President Donald Trump’s remarks about police use of force, issuing a memo saying Drug Enforcement Administration agents must “always act honorably” by maintaining “the very highest standards” in the treatment of criminal suspects.

    ...Chuck Rosenberg, who as acting DEA chief works for the president, told agency personnel world-wide in a Saturday memo to disregard any suggestion that roughing up suspects would be tolerated. The memo came a day after Mr. Trump told a crowd of law-enforcement officers they shouldn’t be “too nice” when arresting “thugs.”

    “The president, in remarks delivered yesterday in New York, condoned police misconduct regarding the treatment of individuals placed under arrest by law enforcement,” begins the memo, titled “Who We Are” and marked “Global Distribution.”

      I think we are reaching the lowest levels of his approval ratings. There will always be come that are just as blind, stupid and "loyal" who will never acknowledge that Trump is a traitor and a criminal. I think we may be reaching that point.

      I am surprised my life long Republican 87 year old Mother voluntarily spoke disparagingly of Trump when I visited last Saturday. She is disgusted by him and his entire administration. She did't vote for him but didn't vote for Hillary either. I'm wondering if, privately, she is regretting that. Not that it would have mattered. My state never matters. We might as well not bother to vote.

    Paul Ryan Releases Hype Video For Spending Billions On A Border Wall

    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) on Tuesday released a hype video of sorts to pump up the Republican base at the prospect of walling off the U.S.-Mexico border — and using their tax dollars to fund the project.

    Over a thumping techno baseline and 808 claps, Ryan made the argument for funding the barrier with taxpayer dollars, despite President Donald Trump’s endless campaign promises that the Mexican government would pay for the wall.

    ...The lack of any specific time stamp — “I had the opportunity to travel,” “this week” — works conveniently for Ryan: the footage of him touring the border on horseback and via helicopter is nearly six months old.

    While a press release accompanying the video touts the House’s funding fully “President Trump’s FY2018 $1.6 billion request for a wall along our southern border” (House Republicans used a procedural maneuver to avoid a vote on that item specifically, couching it in a larger, unrelated funding bill), that’s a fraction of what most experts expect the wall to cost.

    Senate Democrats, meanwhile, have said such funding stands no chance of getting by their chamber.


    1. Anonymous11:03 AM

      Waiting to hear the gaydar returns on this!

    2. Even if the wall is never finished, even if they don't get funding, they will have already destroyed a protected habitat along the border in Texas that is earmarked to be the start of the wall. They'll destroy it with a bit of wall that is funded. Then it will stand as a reminder, a monument, to stupidity and partisan hatred.

Because he is not "crazy" like trump and the american public is exhausted the fight against pence will dwindle - but those of us who can see the bigger picture and know their long term plans must keep the truth alive and blast it from the roof tops
