On Pizzagate:
Mr. Alefantis mingles with other Washington chefs and his establishment helped him to be named No. 49 in GQ magazine’s 50 most powerful people in Washington in 2012.

Kind of hard to believe a small pizza shop owner is/was considered to be 49th most powerful person in DC. Because, there are some real powerful people up there, ya know? Hmmmm.

Hillary Clinton is now the only candidate in history to lose the presidential election 3 times in a row

Way to go!

Trump officially wins Michigan, Pennsylvania State Department says Stein missed recount deadline.

Trump Wins Michigan’s 16 Electoral Votes, State Board Says.

Nearly three weeks after Election Day, Michigan officials certified Monday that Donald Trump won the state by 10,704 votes out of nearly 4.8 million to claim all of its 16 electoral votes. There’s more wrangling to come, though, on the final vote count for this oh-so-contentious campaign.

Pennsylvania State Department says Stein missed recount deadline

Jill Stein has everything she needs to launch a presidential recount. She’s got the cash, the grassroots fervor and the spotlight of an adoring media. But there’s one thing she needs to overturn Trump’s victory: a calendar.

Stein missed Pennsylvania’s deadline to file for a voter-initiated recount. That blown deadline is a huge blow for Democrats who have pinned their hopes on recounts in the Keystone State, Michigan and Wisconsin.

“According to Wanda Murren, spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Department of State,” the Philadelphia Inquirer reported Monday, “the deadline for a voter-initiated recount was Monday, Nov. 21.”

Allied with Clinton’s camp, Stein can still mount a legal challenge. While the chances of litigation are uncertain, the vote tally is clear. Trump beat Clinton in Pennsylvania, a feat not accomplished by a Republican since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

Wisconsin commission rejects Stein request for recount by hand
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/article/2608282/

The Wisconsin Elections Commission on Monday rejected former Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein's request to have all of the state's ballots recounted by hand, instead leaving it up to the state's counties to determine how it will proceed.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported the commission refused to mandate how the state's 72 counties should count votes. Instead, the individual counties will decide whether to use a voting machine or go by hand.

It's a blow for Stein, who claims there are irregularities with the machines Wisconsin uses to tabulate votes on each ballot. If she wants to force a recount by hand, she will have to get a court order, according to the report.

The commission set up a timeline for the recount: Cost estimates and vote tabulation method must be provided by county clerks on Monday; Stein and Rocky De La Fuente, an independent candidate who also asked for a recount, must pay for the recounts on Tuesday; a teleconference will take place on Wednesday to outline the process; and the rules and the recount will officially begin by Thursday.

By Dec. 13, the recount must be finished, according to federal law.

Stein raised millions of dollars last week in order to pay for the recount in Wisconsin. She also plans to file for recounts in Pennsylvania and Michigan. President-elect Trump won those states by slim margins, putting him over the top in the Electoral College.

Trump is currently losing the popular vote by more than 2 million votes.

Looks like Canada's Trudeau has a Foundation set up similar to the Clinton Foundation, along with some of the same connections? Soros is also involved in Canada's affairs including refugee sponsorship.

Trudeau in hot water over “pay for play” but Clinton parallels don’t end there (Video)
http://www.therebel.media/trudeau_cash_liberal_leader_in_hot_water_over_pay_for_play_but_clinton_parallels_don_t_end_there
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qtOJPi917o (4:26 min.)

Justin Trudeau is in some hot water over the Trudeau Foundation, which he says he hasn’t been involved with since he was first elected to the House of Commons.

He attended a $1,500 per plate fundraiser with billionaire Chinese investors that donated $1 million to the foundation.

The Trudeau Foundation is the Canadian version of the Clinton Foundation and the Liberals also have their own version of the Center for American Progress: Canada 2020.

These two groups have hosted joint functions at which Trudeau was a featured speaker as we now know from the Wikileaks release of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails.

American Progress is an attack dog at the Democrat’s disposal. They’re funded by the United Arab Emirates and George Soros and are so influential that Barack Obama implemented many of their policy suggestions when he took office.

There is a clear web of progressive funding that entangles progressive Canadian politicians, American Democrats and activists.

All the major players are involved and our own Prime Minister is one of them.

He rubs shoulders with the likes of Podesta, the Clintons and even George Soros and after Hillary Clinton’s stunning election loss, the globalists have to stick together.


Canada to join with UN, George Soros to export private refugee sponsorship
http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/private-refugee-sponsorship-soros-un-1.3769639

Sep 19, 2016 - Some 13 countries interested in adopting program, Immigration Minister John McCallum says.

Canada is forming a partnership with the United Nations and billionaire George Soros to help other countries implement their own version of Canada's private refugee sponsorship program.

Immigration Minister John McCallum told Rosemary Barton, host of CBC News Network's Power & Politics, he knows of about 13 countries that are potentially interested in Canada's model for private refugee sponsorship, adding he has already had talks with the United Kingdom.

McCallum said the program would be announced at the UN on Tuesday, but a news release issued by Citizenship and Immigration Monday outlined the initiative's three main priorities:
■Expanding the use of private sponsorship as a pathway for refugees.
■Encouraging the expansion of resettlement by building the capacity among states, civil society groups and private citizens to launch private sponsorship programs.
■Mobilizing citizens to directly support refugees and encourage "a broader political debate that is supportive of refugee protection."

The release said the initiative will start by creating training modules for private sponsorship based on an analysis of the Canadian model and will offer countries "tailored advice" on how to adapt and implement the programs.

The joint initiative between the government of Canada, the UN High Commission on Refugees and Soros's Open Society Foundations will have a kick-off meeting in Ottawa in December, the release said.

McCallum said Canada's decades of experience with private sponsorship, going back to the resettlement of Vietnamese refugees in the 1970s, puts it in a position to help other countries.

"I think we can offer practical advice to those countries who are interested in going this route, and I do believe, based on our own experience, that it will be a successful thing to do, and I'm grateful to the UN and George Soros for co-sponsoring this initiative with us," he told Barton.

McCallum said Soros would contribute funding to the project.

President-elect Donald Trump will encourage foreign governments to investigate the Clinton Foundation’s finances, according to a Sunday report by the New York Post.

Trump To Ask Foreign Governments To Probe Clinton Foundation
http://dailycaller.com/2016/11/27/trump-to-ask-foreign-governments-to-probe-clinton-foundation/

11/27/2016 - The proposed action follows only days after a rapid-fire series of announcements from many major Western foreign capitals that they are reducing their contributions to the Clinton Foundation, or investigating the charity’s money trail in their countries.

The Australian government confirmed Friday it is not renewing its several partnerships with the Clinton Foundation, according to Australian news sources.

The Norwegian government also announced a 90 percent cut in contributions to the Clinton Foundation shortly after Hillary Clinton’s presidential election defeat, as first reported by The Daily Caller.

The Commonwealth of Australia and the Kingdom of Norway have each contributed up to $25 million, according to the Clinton Foundation’s website.

In France, federal comptrollers reportedly have begun an investigation into millions of dollars of government money that ended up at the Clinton Foundation, according to a document reviewed by The Post.

Financial pullbacks by such large Western foreign governments suggest their support was based more upon Clinton’s potential influence as president of the US, rather than on the merits of the foundation’s work.

Sources close to the Trump transition team told the Post the new president will ask U.S. ambassadors to raise the Clinton Foundation’s financial transactions with foreign governments, and suggest they probe their financial dealings.

Trump previously said he will not press charges against his former presidential rival over her use of a private email server or over alleged corrupt practices by the Clinton Foundation. The FBI has had a multiple-city investigation of the Clinton Foundation since last February.

However, the U.S. government may still probe a number of special Clinton Foundation projects, including its massive infusion of funds into Haiti and Columbia, according to the Post.

Overall, the Australian government has given up to $460 million to the Clinton Foundation and to its affiliated AIDS project, the Clinton Health Access Initiative.

Former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard has been accused of participating in a “pay to play” scheme with the Clinton Foundation.


After Gillard lost her prime ministerial post in a June 2013 confidence vote with Labor Party leaders, she became chairwoman of the Clinton Global Partnership for Education in February 2014.

“Lo and behold, she became chairman in 2014 and has been ­actively promoting Clinton as president ever since,” wrote London Daily Telegraph columnist Miranda Devine Oct. 29, 2016.


Ah I actually liked Trudeau but sometimes he did remember of a Canadian version of Obama. I Wonder what do Canadian members in the forum think of him? Honestly, at this point it's like everybody is in it.

About the recount, people have a very hard time admitting that Clinton was/is a lousy politician. I wish the recount would prove that lots of votes were rigged in her favour, but I'm sure it won't.

I think Trudeau is similar to Obama. He talks politely and looks good on the camera. But his decisions on policy especially foreign policy aren’t that different then Harpers and in some cases even worse. Imo, he is “meet the new boss same as the old boss” type.

WoW! Stein really got that wrong, she was off by a week for the deadline. Isn't that odd? I read somewhere none of the money she received is refundable. This is good news though about Michigan and Pennsylvania. A recount would have been a good thing, if fraud was discovered however, but the whole thing has been annoying and has a real funky quality to it.

In case this hasn't been commented on it seems Stein's motion for a recount is funded by Soros.

.. this article, from a conservative source, has some credible seeming info. on this:

http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2016/11/jill-stein-and-george-soros-try-to-overturn-election-results/


Funny, but I've had doubtful feelings about Stein since the first I heard of her run and listened to her a few times.

.. and if it's true that Sanders might, in fact, have won the Democratic primary, then where was she then? Offering him the Green Party ticket is not the same as going to bat for him the way she is now doing for Clinton.

.. also, if she truly represents an alternative take on things, shouldn't she remain neutral as to the results of this election?


I'm recalling, too, a investigative journalist who once pointed out that the problem with the Greens is that they don't take themselves seriously enough as a third party to have succeeding in a presidential bid included in their mission statement. (That might be something to look into further, the mission statements of these alternative parties.)

.. if you recall, Ralph Nader (running on the Green Party ticket) was not supposed to take himself so seriously when he ran in 2000 and was blamed, even by some Greens, for Gore's defeat.

As a Canadian I find him to be an enigma. Many were happy when he defeated Stephan Harper and the Conservatives, as they seemed to be too willing lapdogs of Washington, and other major players. They seemed to be in a big rush to undo anything and everything foundational in our government and our society. But since Trudeau has taken office, he also seems to be going along with most of the elites agendas. He has near rock star status, both here and when he travels abroad. But as far as policy changes go, he hasn't done much yet. Maybe he is in a similar position to Trump, in that there are powerful forces behind the scenes, and they haven't allowed him to do much.

This recount business sounds more like another wild goose chase?

More Bad News For Jill Stein As Pennsylvania Judge Blocks Recount Petitions
http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-12-01/more-bad-news-jill-stein-pennsylvania-judge-blocks-recount-petitions

As most people are still trying to figure out exactly what Jill Stein is doing and why she’s doing it, a judge in Montgomery County Pennsylvania, just north of Philadelphia, has decided he’s seen enough. After hearing arguments from attorneys representing Jill Stein’s campaign and the Montgomery County Board of Elections, Judge Bernard A. Moore dismissed the petitions of voters in 78 precincts to recount votes or forensically analyze voting machines due a lack of evidence and improperly filed petitions. Per The Times Herald of Montgomery County:

“What we keep going back to is that our voting machines are not connected to the internet,” said board of elections Solicitor Nicole Forzato. “Montgomery County takes great, great pride in being concerned about its infrastructure for IT generally, and they have gone through a vigorous process to make sure our technology general, including voter services technology and the voting machines are safe and secure to use. ”

The judge did not give an explanation of his dismissal, but objections made by Forzato focused on two areas: first, that there was insufficient evidence to suggest that the machines had been tampered with in any way and second, that the petitions were not filed properly with the proper fees.

Stein campaign attorney Ilann Maazel argued that voting machines throughout Pennsylvania were vulnerable to hacking. He stated that the effort to request a recount or analysis of the machines was to make sure every vote was counted.

“We know that Donald Trump won the vote of machines in Pennsylvania. We want to know who won the vote of the people,” Maazel said.

Maazel also argued that the manner in which the petitions were filed, county-by-county and district-by-district, was a result of “byzantine” election statutes in the commonwealth.

“They’re requiring fees that don’t exist, they are proposing deadlines that don’t exist,” Maazel said. “The Republican Party is saying that over 27,000 people in 9,000 districts have to request a recount or there can’t be a recount anywhere. What kind of system is that? That is a disgrace.”

Of course, this result is not terribly shocking given that even Jill Stein admits there is “no evidence of fraud at the ballot box.”

As we noted yesterday, Jill Stein was also defeated in a Wisconsin court for failing to present any credible evidence of vote tampering.

While this should come as a shock to precisely no one other than some disaffected Hillary supporters who were hoping for a miracle, Jill Stein’s request for a full “hand recount” in the state of Wisconsin has officially been denied by Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn. According to the StarTribune, the request was denied after the judge found that Stein failed to show any mistakes or irregularities that would bring a machine recount into question.

A Wisconsin judge has refused to order local officials to conduct the state’s presidential recount by hand.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein requested the recount last week. She alleged — without evidence — that the state’s voting equipment may have been hacked.

The state Elections Commission has ordered the recount to begin Thursday but rejected Stein’s request that county clerks conduct the recount entirely by hand. Stein filed a lawsuit seeking an order for a statewide hand recount.

Stein’s attorneys argued during a hearing Tuesday evening that the best way to determine if a cyberattack occurred is to check ballots by hand against electronic tabulations from Election Day. State lawyers countered there’s no evidence to suggest any attack took place.

Dane County Circuit Judge Valerie Bailey-Rihn refused to issue the order, saying Stein’s team failed to show any mistakes or irregularities that would bring a machine recount into question.

It’s time to let this one go, Jill. It was a good effort.

Western European nations are facing growing pressure to end their financial contributions to the Clinton Foundation and investigate its spending, investment analyst Charles Ortel told Sputnik

Western Nations Under Pressure to Probe Clinton Foundation Spending – Analyst
https://sputniknews.com/politics/201612011048035354-nations-pressure-clinton-foundation-spending-probe/?utm_source=farkexchange

“The penny has dropped: The governments have decided not to fund Clinton Foundation activities anymore,” Ortel said Tuesday. “Canada, Sweden and Ireland are countries that may undertake investigations or end their practice of contributing large sums to the Clinton Foundation.”

He was commenting after Norway and Australia announced last weekend that they were ending their annual contributions to the charity, founded in 1997 by then-US President Bill Clinton and first lady Hillary Clinton.

According to the New York Post, the incoming presidential administration of Donald Trump will ask foreign governments investigate how the foundation spent hundreds of millions of donor dollars that it said went to provide low-cost medicine to treat AIDS patients in Africa, among other programs.

Ortel explained that government leaders around the world who had approved big yearly donations to the foundation presumed Hillary Clinton would be elected president on November 8. Her unexpected loss to Trump, however, has led to popular pressure in those countries for governments to disclose the fate of their donations.

“Governments now realize to their shock and horror there are numerous questions that regulators should have asked,” Ortel asserted. “Why didn’t regulators in different countries ask these questions about the enormous unmonitored donations to the Clinton Foundation before?”

Germany’s Environment Ministry is being investigated about a donation to the Clinton charity of 4.5 million euros.

In an interview with Sputnik in Germany that was published Tuesday, left-wing member of parliament Niema Movassat questioned why information about his government’s connection to the foundation scandal is coming out only now.

In Ortel’s view, the German investigation illustrates the importance of a provision in New York state law requiring charities to specify in detail how they spend donors’ money. “The Clinton Foundation has not complied with that requirement,” according to Ortel, a former executive at financial firms Chart Group and Dillon, Tead & Co.

He predicted that questions about the foundation will fuel a “media frenzy” worldwide, as public demands for investigations into individual governments’ donations grow.

The German people and the American people deserve answers,” Ortel said. “We need an accounting: How many governments around the world have sent money to the Clinton Foundation? For what projects? In what amounts?”

In 2007, the UK government – led by Prime Minister Tony Blair and then Gordon Brown, both close political allies and personal friends of the Clintons – approved a grant of 1 billion pounds over 20 years to the charity, Ortel pointed out.

Trump WON the election but the morbid Clinton saga continues:

The unsealed search warrant in the Federal Bureau of Investigation's (FBI) probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails shows that agency director James Comey's letter to US Congress was unnecessary, the former Democratic presidential candidate’s lawyer, David Kendall, said in a statement.

Search Warrant in Clinton Email Probe Exposes FBI Director ‘Impropriety’
https://sputniknews.com/us/201612211048814648-warrant-eposes-fbi-director-impropriety/

The warrant was issued in October in order for the FBI to search emails for any messages sent to or from Clinton on the laptop belonging to her longtime aide Huma Abedin’s estranged husband Anthony Weiner.

"Today's release of the FBI affidavit highlights the extraordinary impropriety of Director Comey’s October 28 letter, publicized two days before the affidavit," Kendall said on Tuesday. "[It] produced devastating but predictable damage politically and which was both legally unauthorized and factually unnecessary."

The attorney added that the court filing proves that the FBI had no reasons to determine that the correspondence was somehow related to the investigation closed in July. None of the emails that were on the laptop changed the FBI’s prior decision not to recommend criminal charges against Clinton.


A federal judge in New York has unsealed the search warrant and supporting documents that authorized the FBI to examine a laptop taken from the home of Anthony Weiner for the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server.

Search Warrant Relating to Clinton Emails Unsealed, Though Heavily Redacted
https://sputniknews.com/us/201612201048807870-clinton-weiner-fbi-warrant-unsealed/

The laptop had been previously investigated in an unrelated case involving Wiener, the husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, sending sexually-explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl.

​Abedin had also used the laptop, and emails from Clinton’s time as US Secretary of State were reportedly found on the hard drive.

The 21-page search warrant is heavily redacted, but mentions Clinton by name. In the probable cause section, the warrant states, “given the information indicating that there are thousands of [redacted] emails located on the Subject Laptop — including emails, during and around [redacted] from [redacted] account as well as [redacted] account appearing to belong to [redacted] and the regular email correspondence between [redacted] and Clinton, there is probable cause to believe that the Subject Laptop contains correspondence between [redacted] and Clinton [redacted]. Because it has been determined by relevant original classification authorities that many emails were exchanged between [redacted] using [redacted] and/or [redacted] accounts, and Clinton that contain classified information, there is also probable cause to believe that the correspondence between them located on the Subject Laptop contains classified information which was produced by and is owned by the US Government. The Subject Laptop was never authorized for the storage or transmission of classified or national defense information.” The warrant also states, “a complete forensic analysis and review of the Subject Laptop will also allow the FBI to determine if there is any evidence of computer intrusions into the Subject Laptop, and to determine if classified information was accessed by unauthorized users or transferred to any other unauthorized systems.”

On October 28, less than two weeks before voters cast their ballots for the next president, FBI Director James Comey announced in a letter to Congress that he was reopening his investigation into the Clinton scandal due to the discovery of emails potentially related to the case.

On November 6, just days before the election, Comey announced that the FBI had “not changed our conclusions” in not recommending that charges against Clinton. The attorney fighting for the records to be unsealed, E. Randol Schoenberg, told ABC News that for the FBI to receive a search warrant, "that meant that some judge thought there was 'probable cause' to believe that an actual crime had been committed and that they would find evidence of the crime on the laptop." He explained that he wanted to know what exactly the probable cause was.


US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton received 3 million more votes than her Republican rival Donald Trump in the November 8 presidential election, the Cook Political Report revealed.

Clinton Gained Three Million More Votes Than Trump in US Election, Report Shows
https://sputniknews.com/us/201612211048813156-clinton-gained-three-million-more-trump/

According to the most recent data that includes final vote counts from all 50 US states, Clinton gained 65.8 million votes in the election to Trump’s 62.9 million, the report stated on Tuesday.

However, in the US political system, a presidential nominee wins the race for US president if he or she gains at least 270 electoral votes, regardless of whether their opponent wins the popular vote.

Clinton’s popular vote win came almost entirely from California, which is the most populous US state with 39.3 million people. California carries the largest number of electoral votes, or 55.

The Investors Business Daily remarked that if California is taken out of the popular vote equation, then Trump wins the rest of the country by 1.4 million votes. On Monday, the US Electoral College reaffirmed Trump’s victory. Trump won 304 electoral votes, 34 more than the required number to win the presidency, while Clinton 232 electoral votes. The Cook Report added that Green Party candidate Jill Stein, Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and other candidates won 5.7 percent of the popular vote.


Four Democratic electors in the US state of Washington rejected their party’s 2016 presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, during voting in the Electoral College, local media reported.

The Seattle Times newspaper reported Monday that three electors instead cast votes for Republican former secretary of state Colin Powell, while another elector voted for a Native American elder when the 12-member Washington delegation met in the state capital, Olympia.

Under Washington law, an elector can be fined $1,000 for declining to vote for the candidate who won the popular vote in the state.

The protest does nothing to alter Trump’s path to victory in the November 8 election, with 306 electoral votes.


A Democratic elector in the US state of Minnesota declined to cast a ballot for his party’s presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, during Monday’s voting in the Electoral College, local media reported.

The Star Tribune newspaper of Minneapolis reported that elector Muhammad Abdurrahman refused to vote for Clinton when members of Minnesota’s electoral delegation met in the state capital, St. Paul.

Abdurrahman instead cast his vote for US Senator Bernie Sanders, who competed against, then endorsed, Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. Abdurrahman’s action as a "faithless elector" led to his being replaced with an alternate elector, as required by Minnesota law.


Hawaii's four electors cast their votes for president Monday at the state Capitol building, and one broke the law.

Fellow electors John Bickel, Marie Dolly Strazar and Janice Bond voted for Clinton.


Native American Faith Spotted Eagle said she was astonished to receive a vote for US president in the Electoral College, local media reported.

On Monday, four Democratic electors from Washington rejected their party's 2016 presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton. Three of the state's electors cast their votes for Republican former secretary of state Colin Powell. One elector, Robert Satiacum, cast his vote for Spotted Eagle from the Yankton Sioux Tribe in South Dakota.

"I think I'm totally shocked," Spotted Eagle told South Dakota's The Daily Republic on Tuesday. Spotted Eagle, 68, is a known activist protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline project that would deliver fuel under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.


Renowned American strategist Roger Stone has launched a petition, asking President-elect Donald Trump to prosecute former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and her family for breaching the law.

Trump ally calls for Clinton’s prosecution

Tue Dec 20, 2016 - The long-time ally of Trump said Monday that Clinton’s crimes in using a private server to exchange sensitive data between 2009 and 2013 should not go unpunished.

“No way should Hillary Clinton avoid prosecution #LockHerUp Sign our petition to the Donald Trump Administration,” Stone said in a tweet, while introducing chargehillaryclinton.com, his new website.

The website included a petition addressed to Trump and his nominee for attorney general Republican Senator Jeff Sessions, asking them to also probe Hillary’s husband, former president Bill Clinton and their daughter Chelsea.

“Either we are a nation of laws or we are a ‘banana republic’ led by criminals,” the petition said. "After the Watergate scandal, the mainstream media told us repeatedly that ‘no person is above the law.’”

“It is premature for the Trump administration to decide whether Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton should be prosecuted,” it continued. "In truth, the American people do not yet have a full cataloging of their many crimes."

“We respectfully urge President-elect Donald Trump and Attorney General designate Jeff Sessions to gather all appropriate evidence and submit it to the grand jury to make the potential decision about the Clintons’ potential indictment,” the petition added.

Clinton sent more than 30,000 potentially confidential emails while heading the US State Department. This is while, she deleted thousands of the emails before turning over the server.

Before their ultimate face-off on November 8, Trump accused Clinton of violating federal laws for using a private email server and using her political links to get away with the crime.

He repeatedly pledged to prosecute Hillary Clinton in case he won, reminding the American public that other US officials had faced severe punishments for mishandling secrets on much smaller scales.

The Republican president-elect even criticized the FBI for clearing Clinton of all charges twice.

He also accused the Clintons’ family foundation of accepting foreign donations in exchange for political favors.

After winning the vote, however, Trump retracted his earlier statements and said Clinton’s defeat was punishment enough for her and a prosecution was no longer needed.


Former US president Bill Clinton says Hillary Clinton “fought through everything” in her failed campaign for the White House, but "couldn't prevail" against the combination of Russian hacking and the FBI’s interference.

Hillary couldn’t prevail over FBI, Russia: Bill Clinton

Clinton, who was joined by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio at the state Capitol to cast his ballot as a New York elector,

briefly spoke to reporters following the meeting of the state’s Electoral College.

“I’ve never cast a vote I was prouder of,” the former president told reporters outside the statehouse.

Clinton said his wife fought and prevailed through the email scandal that had plagued her campaign from the beginning but could not overcome the Russian hacking and a letter FBI Director James Comey sent to Congress less than two weeks before Election Day.

In the letter, Comey told lawmakers that the bureau had uncovered new material connected to Clinton’s email investigation. The director, however, notified Congress in a letter two days before the election that his recommendation that Clinton should not be prosecuted remained the same.

Despite losing the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes, Republican Donald Trump was officially elected president as members of the Electoral College cast their ballots across the country on Monday.

Electors sealed the president-elect's victory with 304 votes, giving him more than the 270 majority needed to be declared the victor.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton's former campaign chairman John Podesta suggested Monday that Trump’s campaign might have worked with Russian hackers to win the Nov. 8 election.

In his first TV interview since Clinton’s loss, Podesta said he did not believe Trump was personally involved in the hacking offensive, but did not rule out the possibility of collusion by his associates.

After weeks of internal bickering, the consensus view within the US intelligence community now is that Russia interfered in the election through cyber attacks not just to destabilize the electoral system but to help get Trump elected.

All those elite Millionaires who gave "Pay-to-Play" donations are left holding the ball after Clinton lost. Wonder how's she going to work her way out of this one? She can't deliver - the goods!

Donors Want to Investigate How Hillary Spent $1.5 Billion in Campaign Donations
https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/north_america/2016-u-s-presidential-election/clinton-donors-want-to-investigate-where-hillary-spent-1-5-billion-for-her-campaign/

Clinton’s fallout is interestingly causing an internal revolution among Hillary’s big donors. At her New York bash to “thank” her big donors of $1 million or more, she took no blame and pointed the finger at Comey and Putin. Her spin did not work and she has lost a lot of credibility according to confidential sources. They were smart enough to realize that even if Russia “hacked” the DNC and Podesta emails, there would be no release if there had been no wrongdoing to begin with.

Now Clinton’s biggest backers want a “campaign autopsy,” which could expose Clinton’s entire operation. The donors are demanding to know where Clinton spent the near $1.5 billion in campaign resources she collected in the closing months. They want the receipts. They are demanding an honest investigation of how Clinton failed to read the mood in swing states and how her Brooklyn operation misread polling data.

The donors are not buying the Russian hack story. Putin isn’t the only explanation for her failure and they are now pointing the finger at Hillary. She never bothered to go to Wisconsin. The story running behind the curtain is that fundraisers are cutting off all donations to the Democratic Party until this honest review is carried out. They do not want to hear about Comey and Putin.

Foreign governments have been cutting off funds to the Clinton Foundation. At last, the money is being cut off. Bill Clinton has lost it, mocking President-elect Donald Trump’s intelligence. “[Trump] doesn’t know much,” Bill Clinton said of Trump. “One thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.” Bill is keeping it racist and gender oriented. Obviously, Bill is lashing out because the Clinton money machine came to a screeching halt.

Ha! Whether domestic or foreign, the pressure to expose the whole Clinton mafia organization is mounting, without Trump lifting a finger. Hopefully the dirt that pressure will unearth will be enough that the DOJ will have no choice but to bring charges. And Trump will get to say that the matter is out of his hands.

Clever, if that's the plan. Killary's got miles of rope to be hung with.
