PI: Evidence Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to death

No.140182 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread

WASHINGTON - It has been almost a year since Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in the nation's capital. There have been no solid answers about why he was killed until now.

Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District's Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich's work at the DNC.

Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich's death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right.

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich's laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.

Now, questions have been raised on why D.C. police, the lead agency on this murder investigation for the past ten months, have insisted this was a robbery gone bad when there appears to be no evidence to suggest that.

Wheeler, a former D.C. police homicide detective, is running a parallel investigation into Rich’s murder. He said he believes there is a cover-up and the police department has been told to back down from the investigation.

Behind Comey’s firing: An enraged Trump, fuming about Russia

No.138326 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread

President Donald Trump weighed firing his FBI director for more than a week. When he finally pulled the trigger Tuesday afternoon, he didn't call James Comey. He sent his longtime private security guard to deliver the termination letter in a manila folder to FBI headquarters.

He had grown enraged by the Russia investigation, two advisers said, frustrated by his inability to control the mushrooming narrative around Russia. He repeatedly asked aides why the Russia investigation wouldn’t disappear and demanded they speak out for him. He would sometimes scream at television clips about the probe, one adviser said.

Trump's firing of the high-profile FBI director on the 110th day since taking office marked another sudden turn for an administration that has fired its acting attorney general, national security adviser and now its FBI director, who Trump had praised until recent weeks and even blew a kiss to during a January appearance.

The news stunned Comey, who saw his dismissal on TV while speaking inside the FBI office in Los Angeles. It startled all but the uppermost ring of White House advisers, who said grumbling about Comey hadn't dominated their own morning senior staff meetings. Other top officials learned just before it happened and were unaware he was considering firing Comey. "Nobody really knew," one senior White House official said. "Our phones all buzzed and people said, What?"

By ousting the FBI director investigating his campaign and associates, Trump may have added more fuel to the fire he is furiously trying to contain — and he was quickly criticized by a chorus of Republicans and Democrats. "The timing of this firing was very troubling," said Sen. Ben Sasse, a Nebraska Republican.

Kalimantan | An ecologist’s dream to watch orangutans in their natural habitat quickly turned into his worst nightmare after being savagely attacked and raped by a 400-pound orangutan in the jungle of Borneo.

Zack O’Reilly, a young 26-year-old from Ireland, who is presently studying biology at Dublin city University and has been a Greenpeace activist for the past three years, had always dreamed of seeing orangutans in their natural habitat and was a strong advocate against the palm oil industry, which is a great threat to the endangered species.

“ He always dreamed of seeing orangutans in the jungle. I used to tease him, saying he looked like one and that he’d find his soulmate in the jungle. Never would I have thought he would be sexually assaulted by one ”

– Kelly O’Reilly, mother

The young man was quickly brought back to a missionary hospital near Kalimantan where he lay unconscious for many hours and where doctors found traces of internal bleeding.

"What we know about U.S. probes of Russian meddling in 2016 election"

No.140890 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread

The following describes what is publicly known and not known about U.S. investigations into meddling and possible collusion between Russia and members of the Trump campaign:

How did the investigations begin?

Former President Barack Obama ordered U.S. intelligence agencies to assess whether Russia tried to intervene in the election after a cyber attack on the Democratic National Committee in July 2016 and the publication of thousands of hacked personal emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager in the month before the Nov. 8 election. Obama told intelligence officials to deliver a report on possible foreign interference before he left the White House in January 2017.

What did the intelligence agencies find?

The Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Agency concluded in a report declassified in January that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign not just to undermine confidence in the U.S. electoral system but to affect the outcome.

The agencies said Putin and the Russian government had a "clear preference" for Trump to win the White House. Putin's associates hacked information, paid social media "trolls" and backed efforts by Russian government agencies and state-funded media to sway public opinion, the agencies said.

Pedophile Kingpin Sentenced After Questionable FBI Sting

No.137983 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread

On Friday the creator of the world’s largest child pornography site was sentenced to 30 years in prison, but some question the legality of the tools used in the investigation

>(VERO BEACH, FL) Steven W. Chase, 58, of Naples, Florida was the founder of “The Playpen”, a member-only website created in August 2014 which became the largest online hub of child pornography with over 150,000 unique users worldwide.

>From the subsequent joint FBI-Europol investigation which led to Mr. Chase’s arrests in December 2014 and February 2015, and ultimate conviction on Friday, 870 suspected pedophiles (368 in Europe alone) have been arrested, and almost 300 children have been either identified or rescued from their abusers.

>The website was ultimately brought down after an FBI investigation codenamed “Operation Pacifer”, which was launched after Europol discovered Playpen’s U.S. based IP address and passed it to their American counterparts. From this IP address, which functions as a digital footprint for online activity, the FBI learned that the websites hosting server was located at a web-hosting facility in North Carolina, with Mr. Chase serving as its administrator.

>The FBI then arrested Mr. Chase in February 2015, and assumed control of the website for two weeks, allegedly using the time to attach malware to users uploads and downloads to identify the websites membership roles. “The case demonstrated how law enforcement needs to use such methods to fight criminals who can hide behind online anonymization and encryption programs,” Europol's European Cybercrime Center’s head Steven Wilson said Friday in a statement.

Deputy Attorney General throws more cold water on the White House's explanation for Comey's firing

No.141094 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told senators in a closed-door briefing Thursday that he knew FBI Director James Comey would be fired before he wrote a memo outlining his mishandling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, a top Democratic senator said.

Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri told reporters gathered outside the briefing room that Rosenstein had "acknowledged that he learned Comey would be removed prior to him writing his memo," despite the White House initially insisting that Trump fired Comey on Rosenstein's recommendation.

Trump fired Comey on May 9.

Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin told reporters that he did not think Rosenstein was pressured to write the memo, but he said Rosenstein told the senators that he knew the day before Comey was fired that Trump intended to dismiss him.

That conflicts with White House press secretary Sean Spicer's explanation in the immediate aftermath of Comey's firing that it "was all" Rosenstein's idea.

"This was a DOJ decision," Spicer told reporters on May 9, referring to the Department of Justice. White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters the next day that the letters Trump received on Tuesday outlining "the basic atrocities" Comey committed "in circumventing the chain of command of the Department of Justice" persuaded him to fire the director.

On May 10, Vice President Mike Pence also said Trump had based his decision on Rosenstein's recommendation.

That explanation quickly unraveled, however, as reports surfaced that Trump decided he would fire Comey nearly a week before Rosenstein wrote the memo.
