Frightening US development - FBI raids home of Clinton Foundation whistleblower
Saturday, 01 December 2018
You have to wonder at the protections and apparent immunities extended to the criminal Clintons and Friends.
I've been contacted overnight by US colleagues who have vouched for this story.
I've dealt with Richard Pollock and always found him to be fastidious in his fact checking. Another mate who's much closer to him wrote to me saying "I know Richard well...this is outrageous!"
As the truth of the Clinton and Friends' crimes comes out authorities here and in the US must expose the coverups and abuses of lawful authority. On the face of it, this appears to be one of the more obvious examples.
EXCLUSIVE: FBI RAIDS HOME OF WHISTLEBLOWER ON CLINTON FOUNDATION, LAWYER SAYS
- The FBI raided the home of a whistleblower who was in possession of documents regarding the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One, according to the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras.
- The whistleblower, Dennis Nathan Cain, had turned the documents over to the Department of Justice’s inspector general and both the House and Senate Intelligence committees, according to the lawyer.
- The FBI rummaged through Cain’s home for six hours, even after the whistleblower handed over the documents, according to Socarras.
FBI agents raided the home of a recognized Department of Justice whistleblower who privately delivered documents pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to a government watchdog, according to the whistleblower’s attorney.
The Justice Department’s inspector general was informed that the documents show that federal officials failed to investigate potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and Rosatom, the Russian company that purchased Uranium One, a document reviewed by The Daily Caller News Foundation alleges.
The delivered documents also show that then-FBI Director Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to Rosatom and to other Russian government entities attached to Uranium One, the document reviewed by TheDCNF alleges. Mueller is now the special counsel investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.
“The bureau raided my client to seize what he legally gave Congress about the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One,” the whistleblower’s lawyer, Michael Socarras, told TheDCNF, noting that he considered the FBI’s raid to be an “outrageous disregard” of whistleblower protections.

Last week, outgoing House Republicans revealed that the prosecutor appointed to investigate the Clinton Foundation over alleged corruption schemes during her tenure as secretary of state would hold a hearing on December 5 to update Congress on the status of the investigation.
The FBI has raided the home of Dennis Nathan Cain, the whistleblower who turned in documents on the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One to the Justice Department's inspector general and Congressional intelligence committees, the Daily Caller reported, citing Cain's lawyer Michael Socarras.
"The Bureau raided my client to seize what he legally gave Congress about the Clinton Foundation and Uranium one," Socarras said, adding that he viewed the raid as an 'outrageous disregard' of his client's protections under the Intelligence Community Whistleblower Protection Act.
According to Socarras, 16 agents spent six hours looking through Cain's Union Bridge, Maryland home on November 19 despite the fact that he had handed over all the documents in his possession when they arrived. The FBI confirmed that it had "conducted court-authorised law enforcement activity" in the Union Bridge area, but offered no further comment.
The delivered documents also showed that then-FBI director and current Trump Russia probe chief Robert Mueller failed to investigate allegations of criminal misconduct pertaining to the Clinton Foundation over the Uranium One deal. Cain received access to the documents while working as an FBI contractor.
Socarras told the Daily Caller that the raid was a violation of legal protections for whistleblowers, including the "means to report violations of law".
Ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Attorney John Huber to investigate the Clinton Foundation, which has been accused of being entangled in multiple corruption schemes during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, in March. The allegations include claims of criminal misconduct in the sale of Uranium One. In 2010, Clinton's State Department was one of nine US agencies which signed off on the US-Russian uranium deal, although Mrs. Clinton has denied any personal involvement in the decision. Clinton's critics have accused her of a variety of 'pay to play' schemes involving kickbacks to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for her political support as secretary of state. Clinton served as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013.
