Thrivent changing to treat all people better? “we will change from within” or just trying to placate blacks, Admitting their “core Christian beliefs” a ruse?

Thrivent changing to treat all people better? “we will change from within” or just trying to placate blacks, Admitting their “core Christian beliefs” a ruse?

“You don’t need to be Christian to join our team.”…Thrivent job opening ad

“I worked at Thrivent Financial full-time (More than 8 years)”                      “Claims to be based on Christian values but does not adhere to them.”…Former Thrivent employee

“pre-dispute mandatory arbitration provisions are inappropriate in insurance policies and incompatible with the legal duties insurers owe policyholders when handling their claims.”…NAIC, National Association of Insurance Commissioners, August 15, 2016

 

Is Thrivent changing their evil ways?

A good start would be to remove so many attorneys from key positions, quit using high powered law firms who brag about defeating claim filers, actually act out “core Christian beliefs” and reverse their retroactively changed contract to remove mandated and allow optional mediation and arbitration in the dispute resolution process.

From Each Story Told.

“As I read the following news release from Teresa Rasmussen, President and CEO of Thrivent Financial, I was reminded of Starbucks shutting down years ago to retrain their employees on making coffee.

I thought then how foolish it looked to be training employees on how to make coffee. If I was foolish enough to have not already been training my employees on how to make coffee, I am not sure I would admit it.

The same goes for Thrivent, formerly Aid Association for Lutherans.

Thrivent for decades has touted their Christian beliefs and concerns for members.

Are they finally admitting it was all a ruse, a clever wolf in sheep’s clothing scenario?

Are they willing to apologize to me and countless others for the fraud they have perpetuated and the shameless way they treated us?

For their corrupt mandated arbitration enacted retroactively?

Really care about economic insecurity?

Or are they just trying to placate blacks?

From Thrivent and Teresa Rasmussen July 10, 2020.

“Letter From Our CEO: Doing What’s Right As We Travel The Long Road To Change”
“Together we will take immediate action – and invest in long-term change – to help address racism, discrimination and economic insecurity.

At Thrivent we believe humanity thrives when people make the most of all God has given them. Yet the ability to thrive is fundamentally hindered for those who disproportionately face systemic inequities, racism and discrimination due to the color of their skin.

As we continue to grapple with the tragic killing of George Floyd and the resulting anger, frustration and sorrow in our communities, we know that what happened not only to Mr. Floyd, but many before him, calls for real change.

The issue is so deeply rooted that there is not one answer, one remedy or one solution. Bringing meaningful change to these problems will, at the very least, take deep soul-searching and personal growth from people and institutions. It will require investing in, and supporting, one another for Thrivent to be inclusive and diverse with abundant and equitable opportunities for all.

As an organization, we will change from within. We will seek, identify and hire diverse talent that clearly reflects the communities in which we operate and serve. We understand that Black, Indigenous, and people of color receive disproportionately less mentorship, growth opportunities and advancement in the American workplace. We will ensure this is not the case at Thrivent, and we will hold our leaders accountable to this mission.”

Racism at Thrivent. You decide:

“Executive sues Thrivent, saying he was fired because he is black”

“A black executive claims he was fired as president of a Thrivent Financial subsidiary because he accused a co-worker of racial discrimination, according to a lawsuit he filed against the financial services firm.

Gregory M. Smith, who said he was recruited by Thrivent in 2016 to help grow its network of independent insurance brokers, said he was stunned to encounter discrimination at a Fortune 500 company whose mission is “helping Christians be wise with money and live generously.”

“I was shocked,” said Smith, 56, who has worked at some of the largest insurance companies in the U.S. “I have never been treated so badly in my life.”

In a written statement, Thrivent denied the allegations and predicted the company will win the court battle over the lawsuit filed this month in Hennepin County.”

“Within months, Smith had laid off about half of his 15-member staff, most of whom quickly found jobs with other Thrivent companies, according to Smith’s attorney, Clayton Halunen. In an interview, Smith said some of the workers lacked the skills he needed, while others were terminated because he was concerned about their “exorbitant” spending on business trips. He said all of the terminated workers were white.

“I was the only person of color when I came in,” Smith said in the interview. His lawsuit claims that the presidents of seven other Thrivent subsidiaries are all white.”

“To celebrate, Smith said in the interview, he took his team out for dinner at the Capital Grille in downtown Minneapolis after work one night in December 2016. About 6 p.m., while waiting for some of his workers to show up, Smith said he strolled into the bar area and overheard Huth talking about him with another member of the team.

In the lawsuit, Smith said Huth allegedly said to the other worker: “We are going to get rid of that black piece of shit,” referring to him. In the lawsuit, Smith said Huth noticed him standing there and looked at him “sheepishly … apparently scared that he had overheard” the remark.””

Seth Rich coverup Part 1, Fox News attacked and silenced, Appeals judge quotes lie, How we got to Assange Ratner testimony request, Attorney Clevenger: “why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”

Seth Rich coverup Part 1, Fox News attacked and silenced, Appeals judge quotes lie, How we got to Assange Ratner testimony request, Attorney Clevenger: “why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”

Mueller, as a matter of determined policy, omitted key steps which any honest investigator would undertake. He did not commission any forensic examination of the DNC servers. He did not interview Bill Binney. He did not interview Julian Assange. His failure to do any of those obvious things renders his report worthless.”…Craig Murray

“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich. Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020

“Re: Seth Rich, keep an eye on the National Security Division of the Justice Department. As you can see from the federal complaint, the NSD ignored a FOIA request that I filed back in 2018 for records about Seth Rich. And look at Paragraph 16, plus Exhibit 8. I think NSD is playing a bigger role in the “Russian hacking” narrative than most of us understood. By sending Seth Rich records there, it’s easier to keep things classified. So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020

 

The official narrative of the murder of Seth Rich, his non involvement in the DNC data leaks as well as the alleged Russian collusion, never made sense to anyone paying attention, with an IQ greater than a squirrel and who wants the truth.

Fox News and a host of other non fake news sources began reporting and asking questions immediately.

The deep state and swamp responded immediately with attacks.

Pretty soon, Sean Hannity, one of the most sincere and dependable newsmen, was silent on the Seth Rich controversy.

Joel and Mary Rich, on March 13, 2018, filed a lawsuit against Fox News, Malia Zimmerman and Ed Butowsky.

“2. In July 2016, Seth Rich, a young Democratic National Committee (“DNC”)
employee, was murdered in the streets of Washington, D.C., in what authorities have stated publicly was a botched robbery. Fox News, Fox reporter Malia Zimmerman, and Fox News contributor and political operative Ed Butowsky intentionally exploited this tragedy—including through lies, misrepresentations, and half-truths—with disregard for the obvious harm that their actions would cause Joel and Mary.”

“Defendants worked with Wheeler to pursue and develop a fiction
that Seth had leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks. And they published, republished, and publicized the sham story—which they knew would be covered again and again, and republished, here and around the world—painting Joel and Mary’s son as a criminal and a traitor to the United States.”

“22. Notwithstanding the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia had obtained the DNC emails via computer hacking, a conspiracy theory emerged among fringe political groups that Seth had leaked the DNC emails.”

The lawsuit against Fox News was dismissed on August 3, 2018.

From Citizen Wells August 3, 2018.

“A federal judge in Manhattan dismissed a lawsuit Thursday that was brought against Fox News by the parents of Seth Rich, the young Democratic aide whose unsolved murder was turned into fodder for a lingering right-wing conspiracy theory.”

“In a related decision, Judge Daniels also dismissed a separate lawsuitbrought against Fox News, Ms. Zimmerman and Mr. Butowsky by a private detective who had played a central role in the retracted story.”

Joel and Mary Rich immediately filed a notice of appeal.

Oral arguments were presented on February 4, 2019.

An opinion was rendered on September 13, 2019.

“Three years ago, Seth Rich was murdered during a botched robbery. He was
a 27‐year‐old staffer for the Democratic National Committee (“DNC”). Soon after
Seth’s murder, uncorroborated theories—contradicted by official U.S. intelligence reports—surfaced on the web. Seth had leaked thousands of DNC emails to WikiLeaks, the theories asserted, and that is why he had been assassinated.”

“CONCLUSION
We VACATE the District Court’s August 2, 2018, judgment granting the
Appellees’ motion to dismiss, and we REMAND the case for further proceedings
consistent with this opinion.”

The case has been ongoing since.

6 attempts were made to subpoena Ellen Ratner.

Why is Ellen Ratner important?

From Citizen Wells July 15, 2019.

From Attorney Ty Clevenger July 15, 2019.

“Fox News news analyst Ellen Ratner relayed information from Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to Texas businessman Ed Butowsky regarding Seth Rich’s role in transferring emails to Wikileaks, according to an amended lawsuit that I filed this morning on behalf of Mr. Butowsky.”

From Citizen Wells August 5, 2020.

“This Request is being made to obtain testimony from Julian Assange for use at trial in the above-captioned matter in relation to the source of the DNC emails and documents released by WikiLeaks in 2016; WikiLeaks’ response to Mr. Rich’s murder; and WikiLeaks’ communications with Mr. Rich and members of Mr. Rich’s family.”

So that is how we got here.

The deep state swamp folks have attempted to be clever.

However, in their devious attempts to hide and obfuscate the truth, they have motivated folks in the private sector such as attorneys Ty Clevenger, Sidney Powell and the Fox legal team to rise to the occasion and reveal the truth.

MSNBC “We are a cancer “, Producer Ariana Pekary resigns, “This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic”, “Important facts or studies get buried”

“We are a cancer and there is no cure”
“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic.”
“This cancer risks our democracy”...Ariana Pekary , former MSNBC producer

“If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.”... William Tecumseh Sherman

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

Those of us who care and are paying attention have known for years that MSNBC and the rest of the fake news media care more about their leftist Democrat agenda than the well being of this country and the humans being affected.

The media and Democrat mantra: “The end justifies the means.”

From Fox News August 3, 2020.

“MSNBC producer resigns from network with scathing letter: They block ‘diversity of thought’ and ‘amplify fringe voices’
Ariana Pekary said important facts and studies about the coronavirus would ‘get buried’

A former MSNBC producer wrote a scathing open letter explaining why she recently left the cable news network.

“July 24th was my last day at MSNBC. I don’t know what I’m going to do next exactly but I simply couldn’t stay there anymore,” Ariana Pekary wrote on her personal website. “My colleagues are very smart people with good intentions. The problem is the job itself. It forces skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis.””

“She then quoted someone she described a “successful and insightful TV veteran” who said: “We are a cancer and there is no cure… But if you could find a cure, it would change the world.”

Pekary, who described herself as an “integral member” of the MSNBC primetime show “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” used the “cancer” analogy to describe MSNBC’s coverage of the coronavirus outbreak and the racial unrest in recent months, writing: “The model blocks diversity of thought and content because the networks have incentive to amplify fringe voices and events, at the expense of others… all because it pumps up the ratings.”

“This cancer risks human lives, even in the middle of a pandemic. The primary focus quickly became what Donald Trump was doing (poorly) to address the crisis, rather than the science itself. As new details have become available about antibodies, a vaccine, or how COVID actually spreads, producers still want to focus on the politics. Important facts or studies get buried,” Pekary explained.  “This cancer risks our democracy, even in the middle of a presidential election. Any discussion about the election usually focuses on Donald Trump, not Joe Biden, a repeat offense from 2016 (Trump smothers out all other coverage). Also important is to ensure citizens can vote by mail this year, but I’ve watched that topic get ignored or ‘killed’ numerous times.””

Obesity epidemic preceded Covid-19 pandemic and contributes to complications and death, 42 percent of US adults obese, 27 % increased risk factor, 40+ BMI doubles risk

Obesity epidemic preceded Covid-19 pandemic and contributes to complications and death, 42 percent of US adults obese, 27 % increased risk factor, 40+ BMI doubles risk

“Having obesity, defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above, increases your risk of severe illness from COVID-19.”…CDC

“Long before Covid-19 happened, we already had an epidemic in the US. Obesity.”...Citizen Wells

“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.”…George Orwell, “1984″

 

In the US it is always someone else’s fault.

If you are arrested by the police for breaking the law it is the police fault.

If you get Covid-19 it is Trump’s fault.

However, long before Covid-19 happened, we already had an epidemic in the US.

Obesity.

The elephant in the room.

Nobody wants to talk about it including the fake news media.

Recently I learned of the death from Covid-19 of a young woman in her mid twenties. The mother stated that her daughter had no pre existing conditions.

The photo of the young woman appeared to reveal that she was overweight.

This is a wake up call.

From Houston Methodist.

“Anyone can get infected with the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19. But, as we continue to learn more about this new disease, it’s becoming increasingly clear that some people are more vulnerable to severe illness than others — including those who are very overweight.

“People may not realize this, but obesity in and of itself is a risk factor for being hospitalized or placed in the ICU as a result of COVID-19,” says Dr. Kyle Stephens, weight loss surgeon at Houston Methodist. “And this is particularly concerning since we also know that about 42% of adults in the U.S. are considered obese.”

Given that this new virus is going to be among us for some time, here are three things Dr. Stephens wants everyone to know about obesity and COVID-19.

A person’s weight alone can increase his or her risk

By now, you’ve likely heard that older adults and people with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, are more vulnerable to developing a severe case of COVID-19.

But, even if you feel healthy, just being heavily overweight can increase your risk of severe illness as well.

“In fact, obesity is the number one risk factor for developing a severe case of COVID-19 in people under the age of 55,” warns Dr. Stephens. “People don’t always see obesity as abnormal, since it’s quite prevalent, but it’s important to know if your weight is putting you at risk for COVID-19, as well as other health conditions.”

A person is considered obese if he or she has more body fat than what’s considered healthy for his or her height. A quick measurement called body mass index (BMI) is used as a screening tool for obesity.

“Having a BMI of 30 or higher increases a person’s risk of developing a severe case of COVID-19 by 27%,” Dr. Stephens says. “And a BMI of 40 or higher doubles a person’s risk.”

A severe case can be much harder to recover from

It’s still unclear why obesity puts a person at higher risk, but there are some theories.

“One thought is that the infection may exacerbate the breathing difficulties that overweight people often experience, even if they don’t know it. Another theory is that obesity may increase the chance of a person experiencing “cytokine storm” — a life-threatening immune-related complication of COVID-19. Lastly, having more fat may help the virus stick around longer due to molecular properties of both fat cells and this particular virus,” explain Dr. Stephens.

Whatever the reason for a person’s increased risk, it’s important to keep in mind that the sicker you get, the longer it will take you to recover.

“Aside from the immediate risk to your life, a severe illness likely also means a longer recovery, and may even result in longterm damage to your lungs,” explains Dr. Stephens. “If your illness becomes so severe that you end up in an ICU and/or on a ventilator, your recovery could possibly take months.””

From the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) July 29, 2020.

Findings of Misconduct by a then Federal Bureau of Investigation Unit Chief for Approving a Subordinate’s Outside Employment Form Knowing that the Form Contained Misleading Information and Dereliction of Supervisory Responsibilities

The Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this investigation upon the receipt of information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) alleging that a then Unit Chief approved a request for outside
employment submitted by a subordinate that contained false information, despite the Unit Chief allegedly being fully aware of the circumstances of the request, and then forwarded the request for executive approval. The request was
made during the lapse in appropriations, which began in December 2018 (commonly referred to as the “government shutdown”), at a time when the subordinate had been furloughed and was no longer receiving a regular paycheck. TheFBI canceled the subordinate’s request before the subordinate began outside employment.

The OIG investigation substantiated that the Unit Chief violated FBI policy by approving the subordinate’s outside employment form despite knowing that the form contained misleading information, in that it failed to disclose a
professional relationship between the subordinate and the potential outside employer that raised a financial conflict of interest concern. The OIG investigation also substantiated that the Unit Chief violated FBI policy by failing to exercise reasonable care in the execution of supervisory duties and responsibilities related to the subordinate’s request for outside employment.

The Unit Chief retired while the OIG investigation was ongoing.
The OIG has completed its investigation and provided its report to the FBI for its information.”

As is the essence of the problem here, instead of protecting its citizens, the “government” is protecting its own criminal conduct and operatives.”…Attorney Sidney Powell October

“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich. Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020

“I repeatedly asked U.S. Attorney John Durham and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate whether Mr. Hardy lied under oath, and in an April 22, 2020 letter Mr. Horowitz wrote that he referred my complaint to the FBI’s Inspection Division. Was Mr. Hardy forced out?”…Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020

 

When we think about sexual misconduct and inappropriate conduct within the FBI and DOJ, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page come to mind.

However, they are only the tip of the iceberg.

Sexual misconduct, inappropriate conduct and other ethics violations create conditions ripe for blackmail and may explain the conduct of DOJ personnel over the past years.

Here are some of the more disturbing reports from the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) over the past year.

“Their chance of winning in 2020, especially now with Trump’s success, is getting slim, and they are getting desperate. When they get desperate, and they have done this before, I think we can count on voter fraud. They are going to have to use it, and they have used it before.”…Kevin Shipp, former CIA employee

From the US Department of Justice July 23, 2020.

“Former Congressman Charged with Ballot Stuffing, Bribery, and Obstruction

A former U.S. Congressman was charged Tuesday in an indictment unsealed today, with conspiring to violate voting rights by fraudulently stuffing the ballot boxes for specific candidates in the 2014, 2015, and 2016 primary elections, bribery of an election official, falsification of records, voting more than once in federal elections, and obstruction of justice.

Michael “Ozzie” Myers, 77, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is charged with conspiring with and bribing the former Judge of Elections for the 39th Ward, 36th Division, Domenick J. Demuro.   Demuro, who pleaded guilty previously in federal court in Philadelphia, was responsible for overseeing the entire election process and all voter activities of his division in accord with federal and state election laws.

“Free and fair elections are the hallmark of our system of government,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian C. Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division.  “The Department of Justice has zero tolerance for corruption of the electoral process, and we will spare no effort in investigating and prosecuting those who would seek an unfair advantage at the polls by bribing state and local officials responsible for ensuring the fairness of our elections.”

“Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy.  If only one vote has been illegally rung up or fraudulently stuffed into a ballot box, the integrity of that entire election is undermined,” said U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.  “Votes are not things to be purchased and democracy is not for sale.  If you are a political consultant, election official, or work with the polling places in any way, I urge you to do your job honestly and faithfully.  That is what the public deserves, it is what democracy demands, and it is what my office will enforce.”

“Transparent and fair elections are integral to the proper functioning of our democracy,” said Special Agent in Charge Michael J. Driscoll of the FBI’s Philadelphia Division.  “Those who seek to corrupt the vote threaten the public’s trust in the process and must be brought to justice. The FBI is determined to protect the integrity of our electoral system.”

“These charges, announced today by the Justice Department, clearly illustrate allegations of absolute disregard for the sanctity of our electoral system,” said Captain Leo D. Hannon Jr., Director of the Special Investigations Division of the Pennsylvania State Police.  “As disheartening as this conduct may be for the voting public in Philadelphia and elsewhere, the citizens we serve should be reassured by the fearless and tireless work of the attorneys, agents, and troopers tasked with the continuation of this active investigation.  Particularly in the current atmosphere of impending elections, the Pennsylvania State Police prioritize investigations into allegations of voter fraud and public corruption.”

Myers is charged with bribing Demuro to illegally add votes for certain candidates of their mutual party in primary elections. Some ofthese candidates were individuals running for judicial office whose campaigns had hired Myers, andothers were candidates for various federal, state, and local elective offices whom Myers favored for a variety of reasons.  According to the indictment, Myers would solicit payments from his clients in the form of cash or checks as “consulting fees,” and then use portions of these funds to pay Demuro and others in return for tampering with election results.

After receiving payments ranging from between $300 to $5,000 per election from the consultant, the court papers allege Demuro would add fraudulent votes on the voting machine – also known as “ringing up” votes – for Myers’ clients and preferred candidates, thereby diluting the value of ballots cast by actual voters.  At Myers’ direction, Demuro would add these fraudulent votes to the totals during Election Day, and then would later falsely certify that the voting machine results were accurate.  Myers is also accused of directing Demuro to lie about the circumstances of the bribes and the ballot-stuffing scheme to investigators.

This case is being investigated by the FBI with assistance from the Pennsylvania State Police.  It is being prosecuted by Richard C. Pilger, Director of the Elections Crimes Branch of the Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section and Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric L. Gibson.”

Seth Rich update Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020, Updated FOIA lawsuit, FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy gone?, Why “street robbery” investigation classified?

Seth Rich update Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020, Updated FOIA lawsuit, FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy gone?, Why “street robbery” investigation  classified?

“Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they call ‘The Resistance’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver to sabotage the functioning of the executive branch.” …Attorney General Barr

“Instead of doing so, the government has continued to defy its
constitutional, ethical and legal obligations to this Court and to the defense, and to hide evidence that it knows exonerates Mr. Flynn. As is the essence of the problem here, instead of protecting its citizens, the “government” is protecting its own criminal conduct and operatives.”…Attorney Sidney Powell October

“Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the FBI’s claims that (1) it did not investigate matters pertaining to Mr. Rich; (2) it did not examine his computer; and (3) it conducted a “reasonable” search but could not locate any records or communications about Mr. Rich. Specifically, Ms. Sines’s testimony flatly contradicts the affidavit testimony of FBI Section Chief David M. Hardy.”…Attorney Ty Clevenger March 29, 2020

 

From Attorney Ty Clevenger July 22, 2020.

  • “On Monday, I filed an updated Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for records about Seth Rich, the Awan family, and government surveillance of journalists.
  • Re: Seth Rich, keep an eye on the National Security Division of the Justice Department. As you can see from the federal complaint, the NSD ignored a FOIA request that I filed back in 2018 for records about Seth Rich. And look at Paragraph 16, plus Exhibit 8. I think NSD is playing a bigger role in the “Russian hacking” narrative than most of us understood. By sending Seth Rich records there, it’s easier to keep things classified. So why would a “street robbery” investigation need to be classified?
  • In the Huddleston FOIA case, the government’s response is due on August 10, 2020. Mark your calendar. By that date, the FBI will have to explain what it has done to locate and produce records about Seth Rich. And this time around, the FBI doesn’t have the luxury of denying that the records exist.”

“One more thing: A couple of weeks ago I noticed that the FBI’s FOIA letters were no longer signed by Section Chief David M. Hardy, but by Acting Section Chief Michael G. Seidel. What happened to Mr. Hardy? You may recall that Mr. Hardy filed a sworn declaration in 2018 claiming that the FBI searched its files and located no records about Seth Rich.

In September of 2019, however, Judicial Watch obtained an email string about Seth Rich in response to a FOIA request for communications between FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and in March of 2020 former U.S. Attorney Deborah Sines testified that the FBI had investigated Seth Rich’s laptop and his online accounts. In other words, Mr. Hardy’s testimony was false.

I repeatedly asked U.S. Attorney John Durham and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz to investigate whether Mr. Hardy lied under oath, and in an April 22, 2020 letter Mr. Horowitz wrote that he referred my complaint to the FBI’s Inspection Division. Was Mr. Hardy forced out? I don’t know, but if you have any inside information, please send it my way.”
