“James Comey’s decision to revive the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server and her handling of classified material came after he could no longer resist mounting pressure by mutinous agents in the FBI, including some of his top deputies, according to a source close to the embattled FBI director.”…Daily Mail October 30, 2016

KSG report to the Clinton Foundation November 10, 2008.

“I. SUMMARY

While the Foundation has grown impressively over the past several years, it has a number of fundamental organizational challenges and deficiencies that undermine its effectiveness, expose it to significant risk, and, ultimately, threaten its long-term survival. The Foundation (as opposed to its initiatives, which I have not reviewed) operates more like a political operation focused on immediate situations, tasks, and events, as opposed to a professional, strategic, and sustainable corporation committed to advancing its overall mission. While that may not be a problem while the President is personally involved in the Foundation — and can garner support based on that involvement — it will be a problem when he is no longer involved, and the Foundation has to rise and/or fall on its own name and work only.

If the leadership (that is, the Board and the CEO) intends and wants the organization to survive beyond the President’s personal involvement, then it must take measures to move the organization onto a path of sustainability, starting with revamping both the Legal and Human Resources (“HR”) Departments; reviewing its corporate structure and governance documents; and, perhaps most importantly, having a frank discussion with the President about the current state of the organization, the future of the organization, and his appetite and willingness to allow the Board and CEO to make the changes necessary for it to become sustainable, even great.

The time for making these changes, if they are desired, could not be better: The presidential campaign, which distracted some key employees and caused uncertainty among others about the future of the organization, is now over; virtually all of the employees interviewed are anxious for more structure, professionalism, and mission-focus; and funders are expecting the same.”

“As you know, the Foundation operates in a highly-regulated environment, which impacts its operations in significant ways. Specifically, as a not-for-profit organization, which enjoys tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and which solicits funds from third parties, the Foundation is subject to a number of Federal and State laws governing such organizations. As an employer, the Foundation is subject to the various laws governing workplaces and workforces of the Federal government and of the countries and states in which the Foundation has offices and/or employees. And, as a corporate entity with a board of directors, the Foundation is governed by certain laws applicable to boards of directors and by standards and practices that have developed in the area of not-for-profit governance.

The larger philanthropic landscape makes these legal, compliance, and governance issues even more important. Despite the record levels of philanthropic activity in recent years, donors have become more and more focused on the strategic use of their donations, on realizing a real return on their investments (that is, demonstrable impact), and on the actual operations of the organizations to which they donate. Specifically, they are demanding that not-for-profits function with the same level of discipline, professionalism, and transparency as for-profit companies. These expectations are likely to become even more important to funders in light of the current financial crisis.”

“The current structure of the Foundation accomplishes neither.  Specifically, the organization appears to have been built around individuals, not the needs and interests of the Foundation, and it has not been reviewed or mapped against needs or interests (much less a real strategy) since the days of its inception.  Moreover and significantly, the work of the Foundation and the President are intertwined in a way that creates confusion at, and undermines the work of, the Foundation at virtually every level.  As a result, there is no “central command,” functionalities are divided across offices, Foundation offices and initiatives are dangerously independent, resources are not maximized, and a couple of key managers appear to have interests that do not always align with those of the Foundation.

 

This organization, loosely linked around the President, comprised of many “free agents,” and serving, to some degree, the interests of the President may have been appropriate when the Foundation was in its start-up phase, with few offices, few employees, and few major decisions.  It is not, however, appropriate for an organization that operates across the globe with over 500 employees and a budget of $90 million, that is regulated at every level of government, and that depends on outside funders for sustenance.

Absent a clearer structure and greater clarity about that structure, the Foundation will continue to be faced with reputational and legal challenges, and with confusion, inefficiencies, and waste. ”

  2. “Aide Said He Was Running ‘Bill Clinton Inc.’ in New WikiLeaks Dump

    A 12-page memo written by a former aide to President Bill Clinton illustrates how he and other advisers raised millions of dollars for the Clinton Foundation and the Clintons after they left the White House, according to a new batch of emails released by WikiLeaks.

    The purported memo from Doug Band details how he and his team locked in lucrative speaking deals for Bill Clinton and how Band leveraged his work at his global consulting firm, Teneo Strategies, to persuade clients to contribute to the Clinton Foundation. Band described his work as running “Bill Clinton Inc.”

    “We also have solicited and obtained, as appropriate, in-kind services for the president and his family – for personal travel, hospitality, vacation and the like,” Band allegedly said in the document.”

  19. Found this Post……Interesting News

    FBI Comey Admits to Fabricating Email Investigation, Rigging Election (In FBI Secret Memo) hide this posting
    —————————————————————————–
    (See link to read FBI memo)
    —————————————————————————–
    FBI Memo: Comey knew nothing was in emails and admits to releasing memo to influence election without cause.
    Comey: “we do not know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails”

    Comey had stored these totally innocent emails as part of the long expected October Surprise. What is Comey being promised? Golf memberships, a free Trump condo? More? Comey says this not an investigation but “supplementing the record.” All this while Trump awaits a December trial for raping a 13 year old.

    FBI Director James Comey told his bureau that he broke with custom in alerting lawmakers that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server was being reopened because of its political sensitivity.

    In an internal memo obtained by Fox News, the beleaguered director noted that the FBI typically would not communicate with the public when reopening a case, according to a Department of Justice source. But Comey said he had to in this case because Clinton is seeking the White House in an election on Nov. 8.

    FBI letter from Director James Comey (Fox News)

    “Of course we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed,” Comey wrote. “I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.

    “At the same time, however, given that we do not know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails, I don’t want to create a misleading impression,” Comey’s letter continued. “In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter, and in the middle of an election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood, but I wanted you to hear directy from me about it.”

    Justice officials (Including the Attorney General of the United States) warned FBI that Comey’s decision to update Congress was not consistent with department policy

    Senior Justice Department officials warned the FBI that Director James B. Comey’s decision to notify Congress about renewing the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server was not consistent with long-standing practices of the department, according to officials familiar with the discussions.

    Comey told Justice officials that he intended to inform lawmakers of newly discovered emails. These officials told him the department’s position “that we don’t comment on an ongoing investigation. And we don’t take steps that will be viewed as influencing an election,” said one Justice official who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe the high-level conversations.

  22. Well here it is…….

    Psychic Betsey Lewis makes her Prediction for President

    I predicted at the first of the year that Trump would most likely be the Republican candidate. I am now predicting that Donald J. Trump will become our 45th President on November 8, 2016 that’s if we don’t have a rigged election which is quite possible according to many articles on the web. Donald Trump is a leader and very bright. I remote viewed the future and saw Trump taking the Presidential Oath wearing a dark long coat on a very cold clear day in D.C. and his wife Melania standing near to him, wearing a light-colored coat. I sense something bad will happen to Hillary–at this time I’m not sure what.

    The numbers and his astrological chart have confirmed it! I also looked into the numerology of both Trump and Hillary. Using their birth dates, Donald Trump is number 2, which means he has these traits: enduring peacemaker, gentle, kind, charming, insightful, sensitive, team-player, ambitious, spiritual, well-mannered, placid, just, unselfish, harmonious, sociable, supportive, attention to detail, co-operative, decisive, poise, intuitive, understanding, consideration, grace, devotion, the subconscious, balance, mediation.
    Number 2 relates to pursuing your life purpose and soul mission. he silent-knower, calm, just, intuitively aware, social, peace-maker. He can be inflexible.
    Hillary Clinton is a number 9, which is the end of the 9 year cycle. It show leadership but also karma brought in from past lives. Although it shows 9 can serve humanity, it can mean either good or bad, depending the soul’s purpose.

    Astrological signs:

    Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946 in Jamaica, NY. His Sun sign is Gemini, with Leo rising and his moon in Sagittarius (he speaks his mind). He has 3 Cancer signs, which gives him compassion for humanity, he has 3 Leo signs, which give him strength and an ability to attract people to him, and he has 3 Gemini signs which embraces communication. He is able to speak his mind to the masses and he’s not a career politician. His primary star is Capella grants him an energetic nature, and a love of learning. Leo in his chart makes him bombastic–he’s known to say things off the cuff He has a habit of saying things without considering the negative consequences.Funny, but his star indicates a tendency to be verbose–too talkative! It also imparts honor ad prominent positions of trust. Note: he will become the 45th President which totals “9” his number. He is destined for the White House. I also accurately predicted that Mike Pence would be Trump’s decision for Vice President days before he was selected. Trump will be a good president for the nation. I see him making a great many positive changes as promised, but 2017 will be a tough year ahead for the world.

    Hillary was born Oct. 26, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois. Her sun sign is Scorpio. Scorpio is also in her Rising sign, in the planet Mercury and in the planet Venus. Scorpio is the scorpion known for it’s sting and has a horrible temper, and it lasts. She makes hasty decisions. Hillary has Uranus in Gemini, Jupiter in Sagittarius, Mars in Leo, and her moon is in Pisces (this is the sign of the fish going in two different directions)–indecisive. Hillary’s star is Princeps which gives her prominence in education, science and government affairs. She has a competitive nature. The truth is Hillary and Bill Clinton are part of a elite cabal group and they are involved in dark occult practices. Their involvement in the dark side of life will eventually be their undoing! If she is elected, the New World Order will ignite World War III. The past few months on Earth News I’ve predicted that more damaging information will be revealed about Hillary.

  23. History lesson for the usurper, in case there are new readers at Citizen Wells.

  24. One more rally for Trump today.

  25. CW,
    This looks like a treasure trove of information about the RICO Regime, so much so that I have a headache just looking at the contents list. Maybe readers at this blog can help to decipher it all, and make sense of it, and this is just part 1.
    ****************

    Watched 5 Trump rally livestreams today, when the Trump plane pulled up to the rally and was front and center, and on camera, in front of the gigantic crowd, it was a huge “In your face” moment for the world to see what success looks like, and what a great leader like Trump has accomplished in his life time. I was proud to be associated with Trump, and proud to have voted for a true American patriot.

    CW,
    I think they, meaning democrats, do everything in their power to make sure the Trump livestream is the worst link and feed possible, and usually if Trump gets on a roll, they’ll cut the feed altogether. I believe the crooks are doing it on purpose, they also sabotage the sound on the feed by adding feedback, echo, and anything else they can dream of to try to ruin Trump’s appeal. The Rightside Broadcasting guys said someone cut their cable at one rally, and put them off line. We’re up against crooks, and are fighting to take our country back from these a$$holes, they are evil, thank you usurper, and Hilliary, you are a POS!

  27. The Trump Rally in Pittsburgh(airport hangar) was YUGE! Traffic was backed up a mile from our direction. Bumper to Bumper for an hour and then the police closed off the road to get in. Many many cars turned around and left. We pulled up along the highway along with hundreds of other cars and walked 1/2 mile; only to find an estimated 2 mile long line that wrapped around a building. All ages and very nice people. Heard the line SHOUT out a few times…”LOCK HER UP!” Eventually the rally filled and hundreds if not a thousand ppl couldn’t get in, us included. So many went and stood outside where we were permitted. A few of us went on top of a parking garage and we saw Trumps plane(s) taxi in. It was neat. Then we joined the outside crowd with a small bad sounding speaker and stayed till we heard Trump greet everyone. We then left. Too cold. We got home in time to catch the local news and Trump was leaving to go to Virginia. The news channels estimated any where from 8 to 12 thousand, and that doesn’t count all the ppl and cars that left. I’m telling you hillary can’t pull in a thousand without the unions, or students. Everyone there wanted to be there! We’re all wanting a Trump Victory!

  28. Now this, I guess we’re about to see a world awakening!

    More games with children, and more satanic crap.

    These people are sick! This needs to be exposed!

    Pedophilia Network Exposed in Australia — It Starts at the TOP, Just Like in the USA and UK

    http://www.anonews.co/pedophilia-network-australia/

  29. AND NOW………..
    …………it is very clear that Director Comey has been ORDERED to commit verbal HARI KARI, and he has done the bidding of his alleged superiors. So still ANOTHER once proud, and inalienable department of the Fed, has become politicized, and is now useless, and otherwise neutered. In addition I now see a large portion of the 4th branch of government as now being corrupted as well. When that is complete we will have been taken back to MEDIEVAL TIMES, and the human progress achieved by mankind in the interim period totally erased. This has been done by a small community of totally twisted and extremely powerful people, who in reality have hijacked the minds of nearly the ENTIRE WORLD POPULATION. Only a handful of true believers in REALITY still exist……..and those folks will simply be IGNORED, and/or murdered……….ONE BY ONE, or in groups as was the case when Hitler tried to create the NEW WORLD ORDER, and the NAZI SUPERMEN who was responsible for the deaths of over 20 million people. For those who think that the NEW WORLD ORDER is so wonderful I invite you to LOOK WHERE THE NAZI SUPERMEN ARE TODAY. It is more than likely that people who now sympathise with the sick, twisted logic of such people, will themselves gradually be CONSUMED by their own IDIOCY. Eventually the VIRUS known as HOMO SAPIEN will subsequently choke itself to death because of it’s own overall deterioration. In the final days of humanity it will become a vile, mindless horde surrounding a stinking, rotting road kill carcass, and like vermin……..will end up scratching, clawing, and fighting each other for just ONE BITE of the rotting carcass. Civilisation as we once knew it is slowly changing……… either into financially powerful people, or deteriorating into a mindless horde of humanity. The middle class is slowly disappearing……….and are being supplanted by a mass of illegal immigrants. It is largely the middle class who supports America. When the middleclass dies so will America.

  30. I PERSONALLY BELIEVE………..
    …………..IF MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. PIGGY IS ELECTED IT WILL BE THE FIRST STEP DOWN THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD……… LEADING TO THE DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA.

  31. The NYPD is, and always have been, heroes in my book. If they release what they’ve found, they will save America.

    Praying they’ll do the right thing. Time is running out quickly.

  36. Hilliary cancelled victory fireworks show scheduled for Tuesday night, on Hudson river in New York!

  37. WAS THERE GREAT WISDOM SHOWN IN COMEY’S DECISION ?

    Remember this: Comey DID NOT say Hillary was, or wasn’t guilty of anything….he only said he was not going to charge her…..that leaves the door wide open for Trump !

    Let’s think about this for just a moment…..was Comey a hero or a villain in not bringing charges on Hillary’s email and other violations of law ? Or was he a real hero by not doing so ???
    If Comey had charges Hillary…then Obama would have just PARDONED her…then nothing could have LEGALLY been done to her in the future even if Trump will win…which he will… that’s one scenario.

    Now let’s look at another…..by Comey NOT bring charges, Obama CANNOT PARDON her of anythingIF SHE IS NOT CHARGED WITH ANYTHING……so in effect, she is still on the hook….and that means…..

    If Trump wins and he holds out any charges on the ‘bitch’ until after the 20 of January 2017…that means Trump can ” hang her ass out to dry ” !!!… and Obama or not even a lesser god can pardon her then !!!

    Now think about that for a while. Trump WILL NOT cut any deals with either Clinton, Obama, or anyone else …and when TRUMP wins, he can bag “two or more birds with one shot ” !!!

    After carefully thinking about this, I have decided that Comey did America a great big favor by NOT bringing charges on those 650 thousand emails…that will leave President Trump sitting in the driver’s seat come January 2017…..

    And you can bet your ass that the “rat’s will be jumping ship” as fast as they can trying to turn “states evidence” !!!!…they can run, but they can’t hide !

    NOTE TRUMP

  38. Trump took the lead in early voting in colorado…He is ahead of romney in early voting in NC and FL…romney barely lost fl and won in NC. New Mexico just moved into “toss up” and He is leading in early voting with the crossover voters..More dems voting for him than repubs voting for her.

    Also just read Clinton cancelled her victory fireworks display in NY over the Hudson River for tomorrow night’s celebrations. Hope their internal polling is worse than we know.

    Keep praying folks! The silent majority needs to flood the polling places.

  39. Thanks HF

    Could this be the day when we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel?

    The end of the RICO Regime?

    This is gonna be a tough one, to wrestle our country away from the enemy.

    Popcorn time!

  45. Voted early.
    Usually vote around 9:00 AM.
    Consensus was that this was the largest group seen at 6:30 opening at my location.

  46. CW………
    ………….I voted two weeks ago via absentee ballot. Which I made records of before I sent it in.

  47. ………….If Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Piggy wins it will be largely the net result of the votes from the young people, and the ILLEGALS who are voting illegally. There has already been hundreds of illegals caught trying to vote………in several Eastern states. Florida , and Connecticut so far. What was done about it has not yet been told.

  48. AND………..
    ………..it is very doubtful that the FEMALE BLACK, the ILLEGAL ALIEN, and the YOUNG WHITE FEMALE communities will vote for Trunp. They are all getting lots of FREE LIVINGS……. FREE food by the PALLET LOAD, FREE rent, FREE I phones, FREE Vehicles, FREE utilities, and FREE healthcare………most of which is being paid for by the WORKING CLASS. Soon they will even get FREE college tuition as well. ILLEGALS ARE EVEN NOW BEING GIVEN MONTHLY BENEFITS FROM THE SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM ($1200.00 A MONTH), AND THE BASTARDS HAVE NEVER PAID A NICKEL INTO THE SYSTEM. WANT MORE OF THE SAME THEN VOTE FOR MZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. PIGGY. Until the FREEBIE BULLSHI# is brought to a screeching halt, DON’T LOOK FOR ANYTHING TO CHANGE……..RATHER, IT WILL BECOME MUCH WORSE. The prevailing logic is “IF YOU CAN’T FIGHT EM……..JOIN EM”, AND TO HELL WITH EVERYBODY ELSE IN AMERICA.

  49. I voted today to make America Great Again, to Build the Wall, Drain the Swamp and to Lock Her UP !!

    Have a Great Day and VOTE

  50. WHAT VALUE DO YOU PLACE ON YOUR VOTE ?

    Let me tell you a true story that just happened to me as I stood in line to vote at 9am this morning….it is a ‘telling tale’ of the true value that two people place on one of the few privileges that we still enjoy in America….
    What I write is true and shows that there are many who have come to America as immigrants and now respect this country and our flag more than many who have been native born.

    As I stood in line to vote this morning, I was wearing my “war bonnet” as my wife likes to call it. It is a white baseball cap with all of the combat divisions I have served in over the many years I gave to my country while in the military.

    As I was almost ready to step into the voting booth, I saw an old Vietnamese ‘immigrant’ coming toward me who had just voted….he wore the baseball cap of a Combat Veteran of the Vietnamese war.

    As he came up along side of me, he noticed my “war bonnet” and rendered a hand salute because my cap also had the ‘scrambled eggs of a field grade officer’ on it. When this old Vietnamese man did that, he instantly took me back in time to 1968 when the little country of Vietnam held it’s first national election.

    I was then an advisor to the Vietnamese army and worked with the 10th ARVN division as an Infantry advisor to a battalion in the 48th Regiment of that Division.

    The man and I started a conversation and he too had served as a private in that combat division and by the grace of God, he was able to leave that country before the communist took over in 1974.

    As I said, in 1968, that poor country, in all the confusion and all the killing and carnage that was going on in that country at that time…..they managed to muster over 86 percent of the people who were eligible to vote to go to the polls and vote in their first election.

    I was in Vietnam at that time, and it was a heartwarming, moving experience for me….in a country that was torn apart by war and chaos, they managed to muster that many people to cast a ballot for freedom….. they indeed desperately wanted freedom and liberty, but in the end did not get it.

    While at the same time in the elections in America that year, we could hardly muster 30% of the eligible voters…..this told me that ‘those who have never experience freedom and liberty wanted those privileges more that those who had them all their lives but refused to understand what they really meant.

    The Vietnamese gentleman and I talked for a long time while standing in that voting line about our experiences in that war… but as the line moved forward, I had to move with along with the line. Sadly, we parted without me every getting his name…..but I did get the feeling that he loved his new country that has given him a ‘new life’ and he loved it enough to get out and vote for his choice of a new president.

    I was refreshed in a lesson I had learned 48 years ago but had filed away in the recesses of my mind…..” those who have never experienced freedom have a greater love for finding it than do those who have lived with it all their lives ” …..

    The old Vietnamese gentleman and I shook hands and “thanked each other again for the service we had given to our countries”, and again he rendered a hand salute to me out of respect and he departed the building….this was a very moving experience for me this morning……and it also was a moving experience for the people who stood and watched as we returned salutes and exchanged words that held 48 years of pain, sweat, blood and tears and great agony for both of us !

    Everyone can take a lesson from this…..” You never really know how much you can miss something as elusive as freedom until you no longer have it to enjoy “…..

    That old Vietnamese gentleman who was lucky enough to come to America after his country fell under the crushing blows of communism…and I knew how lucky he was too, because I was there.

    VOTE while you still have that right, or do not ‘bitch and moan’ when you no longer have the privilege to vote and you are under the heel of a repressive government.

    This has only been the ramblings of an old soldier this morning that was given a snapshot of time in a country that time has forgotten. I am only one of many who has “been there and done that” and now proud to be an American.

    God Bless America and God Bless those who stand and guard her.

  51. I just saw this article on Facebook, I had heard about a 13 yr old accusing Trump of rape, under some unusual circumstances, now this!

    The fact pattern as laid out in the phony lawsuit is an admission of what takes place at Epstien’s Island, and is very telling! I assume the lawyers who filed the suit obtained their “facts” from the people who have first hand knowledge of what goes on there at the island.

    How did Katie Johnson fabricate this story if she had never been there?

    Bill Clinton has been to Epstien’s island more than 20 times, and Hilliary has been there at least 6 times.

    Remember the Woman Who Accused Trump of Raping her at 13?

    Turns Out she Fabricated the Story

    Someone’s pants are on fire.

    They belong to Katie Johnson, the woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her at the age of 13.

    Turns out she made up the entire story.

    Typical Hillary Clinton voter, for ya.

    From Daily Mail:

    The woman who alleged that Donald Trump raped her at age 13 at one of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious ‘sex parties’ fabricated the story, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

    When the civil suit was initially filed last April, Trump’s legal team branded the allegations ‘disgusting at the highest level’ and a ‘hoax’ clearly framed to ‘solicit media attention or, perhaps… simply politically motivated’.

    Clinton supporters had seized on the story as a possible knock out blow.

    Then, last Wednesday, Katie Johnson suddenly cancelled a packed press conference at which she was set to reveal herself for the first time, saying she was ‘too afraid’ following a series of ‘threats’ against her.

    On Friday, six months after legal papers were filed, the civil lawsuit was dramatically dropped.

    Social media erupted with claims that the woman had been paid off by Trump or was so terrified by threats to her life from Trump supporters that she was forced to withdraw her claims.

    But DailyMail.com has learned that the real reason the suit was dropped is because the claims were simply NOT true.

    The woman first sued Trump and Jeffrey Epstein under the name Katie Johnson – a name we know not to be her real identity – on April 26 in California federal court and filed an amended complaint in New York federal court in October, claiming she was subject to rape, criminal sexual acts, assault, battery and false imprisonment.

    The court papers offered no corroborative evidence that her claims were true.

    News that the allegations were dropped dismayed Hillary supporters who had hoped the claims would be the knock out blow for Trump’s election campaign – already rocked in recent weeks by a string of sex assault claims.

    What a joke.

    Johnson tried to shame Trump in the most heinous of ways, and for what?

    To side with the most corrupt politician of the past few decades?

    It’s pretty disheartening knowing the levels some people will stoop for reasons that make little to no sense whatsoever.

  52. My oldest daughter sent me a photo from Texas this morning, showing her “I Voted” sticker stuck on to her long sleeve red shirt! She said she didn’t want anybody to mistake who she was voting for! I didn’t raise any dummies! Proud dad!
