Leid Stories Stories and news that affect us all

October 31, 2017  

Robert Mueller, the Justice Department’s special counsel probing possible collusion between the Russian government and the Trump 2016 presidential campaign, yesterday announced indictments of three former Trump aides—Paul Manafort, who ran Trump’s early campaign manager; Rick Gates, a longtime business partner of Manafort; and George Papadopoulos, who was a foreign policy adviser to the campaign.

Manafort and Gates are contesting the charges against them. Papadopoulos has pleaded guilty as charged.

Mueller’s indictments, five months into his investigation, have triggered a firestorm of debate within the legal, political and legislative worlds, especially regarding the   thrust, scope and duration of his secret probe.

There are other major concerns, too. It may be too early to tell where Muller is headed, but yesterday’s indictments appear to be of no help in answering the key question: Did Donald Trump collude with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election?

Nine months after tens of thousands braced the cold in Washington, D.C., and other major U.S. cities in a women’s march to announce “resistance” to President Trump and his incoming administration, thousands again gathered at the Cobo Center in Detroit over the weekend to set priorities for a movement spawned by the Jan. 21 marches.

Leid Stories discusses notable aspects of the Detroit convention.

The Clintons are cornered, and there’ll be no easy escape—not for them, nor for a multitude of slicksters who happily climbed aboard the Clinton gravy train, hoping to ride it until the wheels fall off.

Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley means business; he’s already requested that the Justice Department’s Jeff Sessions speed up the appointment of a special prosecutor. And many foreign governments and philanthropic organizations

Because the Clintons solicited and/or received hundreds of millions of dollars from foreign governments and philanthropic entities to fund the foundation’s “good works” around the world, several of them have launched their own investigations, demanding detailed accounts for where their money went.

Charles Ortel, a retired Wall Street banker turned financial investigator and a recognized expert on the Clinton Foundation, takes us into the Grassley probe and what’s ahead.

On the heels of a stinging rebuke of President Donald Trump by Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) over what Corker called “the debasement of the nation,” another leading Republican, Jeff Flake of Arizona, announced yesterday from the Senate floor that, like Corker, he’ll quit politics at the end of his current term rather than put up with “an utterly untruthful president” and a party that is unwilling to keep him in check.

What should we make of the actions of Corker and Flake?

We return to yesterday’s discussion that raised questions about the U.S. increased military presence in Africa—both in terms of personnel and military installations. The Oct. 4 ambush of four special-operations troops in Niger has raised questions in Congress about “shadow” military operations in that and several other African countries that few in Congress seem to know anything about. Meanwhile, as many as 1,500 “advisers” and other military personnel are in about 34 African countries, and Niger will soon be home to a $100-million, U.S.-built drone base.

More than 1,000 people on Saturday attended a private funeral service for Army Sgt. La David Johnson at Christ the Rock Church in South Florida. Johnson was one of four soldiers in a 12-man unit who were killed in Niger in an Oct 4 ambush, said to have been carried out by ISIS-affiliated forces. His body was not recovered for two days.

A whole lotta craziness went on this week, but you survived it. And, you learned a thing or two that either opened your eyes or confirmed you’ve been on top of things all along. Either way, you have much to bring to the forum to share.

It’s “Free Your Mind Friday” on Leid Stories—a day set aside to exchange information, opinions and ideas. Call 888-874-4888 and take the conversation where you want it to go!  

October 19, 2017  

Charles Ortel, a former Wall Street banker turned financial investigator who widely is recognized as a leading expert on The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation (the Clinton Foundation), follows his bombshells about the operations and machinations of the foundation and its principals with new findings that broaden the circle of key players in what he calls “the largest unprosecuted fraud in U.S. history.”

Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley announced yesterday that his committee is looking into major conflicts of interest involving the foundation’s financial dealings. Ortel’s reports on Leid Stories centered on multiple initiatives the foundation claimed it was successfully running as a donor-funded charity. But very little about the foundation appears to be operating lawfully under its tax-exempt status. Instead, the foundation continues to operate, outside of its original purpose of building a presidential library, as the Clintons’ personal slush fund.

The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation didn’t get to be “the largest unprosecuted charity fraud in U.S. history”—as financial investigator Charles Ortel calls it—all by itself; it got lots of help from well-placed individuals and entities from all over the world.

Under the guise that the foundation was/still is operating a range of philanthropic programs that claim to “do good works,” the foundation, as Leid Stories has been reporting over the last two years, really is nothing more than a slush fund.

Charles Ortel, a financial investigator, has been looking into the operations of the foundation and its affiliated entities for the past two years. He discusses new bombshell findings since his last report.
