It doesn’t really matter if they can get a jury to sign off. Then they can use it in campaign ads that he is a convicted felon. They don’t care if it’s overturned after he loses.

If they campaign that he's a convicted felon, it will yet again boost his poll numbers. (* CHUCKLE *)

Jim Jordan Launches Probe Into Atlanta Prosecutor In Trump-Georgia Case

BY TYLER DURDEN
FRIDAY, AUG 25, 2023 - 01:40 AM

Five days after a Georgia state Senator demanded a special emergency legislative session to investigate Fulton County DA Fani Willis over 'weaponization of our justice system' against former President Donald Trump, House Republicans have launched an investigation into Willis.
 
On Thursday, Jim Jordan's House Judiciary Committee sent Willis a letter demanding documents and information, including whether her office had been communicating with Biden DOJ grand inquisitor Jack Smith, the federal special counsel prosecuting Trump over alleged attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election.
 
"Your indictment and prosecution implicate substantial federal interests, and the circumstances surrounding your actions raise serious concerns about whether they are politically motivated," reads the letter from Jordan (R-OH) to Willis.
 
"The indictment appears to be an attempt to use state criminal law to regulate the conduct of federal officers acting in their official capacities."
 
In addition to asking for communications with Smith, Jordan asked for documents related to the DA office’s use of federal funds, and her communications with any officials in the federal executive branch.
 
Jordan asked Willis to provide the information by Sept. 7.
 
Trump is due to surrender at an Atlanta jail on Thursday evening to be booked in the case. Eighteen other people, including lawyers who promoted false claims about the 2020 election, also were indicted in the case.
 
The lion’s share of Jordan’s letter is dedicated to justifying why a congressional committee has the right to demand information about a state criminal investigation. -CNBC
 
While the House Judiciary Committee is typically limited to oversight concerning federal courts and federal officials, Jordan claims that Willis' case falls under his committee's purview because it concerns the actions of former federal officials.
 
Earlier this year, Jordan's committee demanded similar information from Manhattan "Soros" DA Alvin Bragg, who has charged Trump with falsifying business records related to his porn start hush-money payoff.

More political illegal money laundering!!!

Congress Investigating Nonprofits’ Partisan Election Activities

By Patty McMurray
Aug. 19, 2023 8:00 am

Editor’s Note: Trust But Verify (TBV) has been up and running for just over 60 days, reporting exclusively on non-profit organizations. Of the nine feature articles published, four of them have involved non-profit organizations’ involvement in U.S. elections. That was not by design, it was simply where the tips led. And now, Congress is seeing a similar pattern.
 
The U.S. House Committee on Ways and Means that oversees tax policy, including tax-exempt organizations, is planning to investigate both partisan activities among 501(c)3 organizations as well as foreign money passing through 501(c)3 and 501(c)4 organizations to influence elections.
 
In an official “Request for Information” directed to their House colleagues on Monday, U.S. Representative Jason Smith (R-MO), chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means and Representative David Schweikert (R-AZ), chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight Committee on Ways and Means, pointed out from the Internal Revenue Code: “501(c)3 organizations are strictly prohibited from participating in or intervening in any political campaign on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office.”
 
These 501(c)3 organizations are allowed to undertake nonpartisan activities related to elections such as voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaigns. But they must be executed in a nonpartisan manner, e.g., they can’t target certain neighborhoods or demographics.
 
Even more confusing are regulations related to 501(c)4 organizations — civic leagues or organizations that operate “exclusively for the promotion of social welfare.” Smith and Schweikert are receiving reports that “some 501(c)4 organizations have taken advantage of the vague major purpose and primary purpose criteria to avoid registering as political committees which have donor disclosure requirements.”
 
As it stands, foreign individuals can anonymously contribute millions of dollars to a 501(c)4 which then distributes the funds to 501(c)3 organizations engaged in illegal partisan activities.
 
According to Smith and Schweikert’s RFI, Democrat Super PAC Mind the Gap told its donors that “the single most effective tactic for ensuring Democratic victories — 501(c)3 voter registration focused on underrepresented groups in the electorate.”
 
As Trust But Verify reported in a two-part series (here and here) on how Michigan politics has in recent years been overwhelmed by outside Democrat dollars, the strategy of politically weaponizing nonprofits was launched first in Colorado (see The Blueprint).
 
With regard to foreign dollars, TBV included a headline brief last week on the concerning activities of Swiss billionaire Harsjorg Wyss who is, according to a report from Americans for Public Trust, using American nonprofits to influence elections.
 
This week, Trust But Verify revealed the nonprofit Pew Charitable Trusts’ left-leaning Election Initiative’s former staff are now partnering with Microsoft and the Council on State Governments, yet another giant nonprofit, to create a comprehensive election management system.
 
Watch for future coverage on the Ways and Means Committee’s investigation.

JUST IN: House Republicans Launch Investigation Into Jack Smith’s Office Meeting with Biden White House Officials

By Cristina Laila
Aug. 29, 2023 5:40 pm

House Judiciary Republicans on Tuesday launched an investigation into Jack Smith’s office meeting with Biden White House officials.
 
Joe Biden’s White House Counsel’s office quietly met with Special Counsel Jack Smith’s aides just weeks before Trump was indicted in the classified documents case.
 
According to visitor logs reviewed by the New York Post, Jay Bratt, a prosecutor on Jack Smith’s massive team, met with Caroline Saba, deputy chief of staff for Biden’s White House Counsel’s office on March 31, 2023.
 
The special counsel’s prosecutor met with Biden’s staffers just days after Obama-appointed judge Beryl Howell ordered Trump’s lawyer to testify before the grand jury.
 
Judge Howell flipped Trump’s own lawyer Eric Corcoran into a witness when she obliterated Trump’s attorney-client privilege in a ruling.
 
Jack Smith indicted President Trump weeks later on 37 charges related to classified documents stored at Mar-a-Lago.
 
This is more evidence that Joe Biden is coordinating with prosecutors to lock up his main political rival Donald Trump – in the middle of an election!
 
House Republicans launched an investigation into this meeting.
 
“The Committee on the Judiciary is continuing its oversight of the Biden Justice Department’s commitment to impartial justice and its handling of a special counsel investigation against President Biden’s chief opponent in the upcoming presidential election. According to recent reporting, Jay Bratt—a Department of Justice employee and top aide to Special Counsel Jack Smith—met with White House officials multiple times, just weeks before Mr. Smith indicted former President Donald Trump. This new information raises serious concerns regarding the potential for a coordinated effort between the Department and the White House to investigate and prosecute President Biden’s political opponents,” they wrote.
 
“In September 2021, Mr. Bratt reportedly met with an advisor to the White House Chief of Staff. Two months later, in November 2021, Mr. Bratt again went to the White House to meet with Administration officials. During this same period, President Trump’s lawyers were negotiating with the National Archives about presidential records from his tenure in office. According to reporting, Mr. Bratt’s 2021 White House meetings related to ‘national security.’ Subsequently, on March 31, 2023, just nine weeks prior to Mr. Smith’s indictment of President Trump, Mr. Bratt met with the White House Counsel’s Office Deputy Chief of Staff Caroline Saba and FBI Special Agent Danielle Ray for a ‘case-related interview.'” the Republicans said.
 
The Judiciary Committee is asking for the following information by September 12, 2023:
 
1. All documents and communications referring or relating to any appointment, meeting, or other visit by Mr. Bratt to the White House or the Executive Office of the President; and
 
2. All documents and communications between the Executive Office of the President and the Department of Justice referring or relating to the investigation and/or prosecutions of Special Counsel Jack Smith.
