January 6th Committee Blows Off DOJ Request for Cooperation

The committee refused to share the requested information on the basis of it being “their product”.

The New York Times first reported that the Department of Justice sent a letter to the committee requesting transcripts of its closed-door witness interviews around April 20th.

The letter reportedly advised Timothy J. Heaphy, the House panel’s lead investigator, that the interviews “may contain information relevant to a criminal investigation we are conducting”.

It did not specify which interviews it sought or who its investigation might pertain to.

Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS) rejected the request as “premature”.

“We told them that as a committee, the product was ours, and we’re not giving anyone access to the work product.”

The House committee has no power to pursue criminal charges, but the DOJ is conducting a wide-ranging criminal inquiry into the role of former President Donald Trump and his associates on the events of January 6th.

That makes the committee’s reasoning for its resistance seem even more bizarre.

People familiar with the matter said the panel is attempting to negotiate a deal with the DOJ in which prosecutors would turn over evidence in exchange for the transcripts.

A spokesman for the DOJ declined to comment.

The Budapest Treaty 
was to have Ukraine be natural and not join NATO & that NATO would not move farther East. But the USA broke that treaty. The DNC for 5 years has attacked Russia for a lie that it helped Trump. That too was a lie sold to Americans. The war would end tomorrow if the US & Zelenskyy. See things are not always as things appear to be. I just thought you may need to see there is a lot to this insanity of who is behind the evil of this war. Who benefits, Cui Bono. You want to come here as soon as you are able. Love, Mike

Revealed: ‘anti-oligarch’ Ukrainian president’s offshore connections

Luke Harding
It was a storyline that in earlier times would have seemed impossible. For four years, the actor and comedian Volodymyr Zelensky entertained TV audiences in Ukraine with his starring role in the sitcom Servant of the People. Zelensky played a teacher who, outraged by his country’s chronic corruption, successfully runs for president. In 2019, Zelenskiy made fiction real when he contested Ukraine’s actual presidential election and won. 

On the campaign trail, Zelenskiy pledged to clean up Ukraine’s oligarch-dominated ruling system. And he railed against politicians such as the wealthy incumbent Petro Poroshenko who hid their assets offshore. The message worked. Zelensky won 73% of the vote and now sits in a cavernous office in the capital, Kyiv, decorated with gilded stucco ceilings. Last month, he held talks with Joe Biden in the Oval Office.

The Pandora papers, leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) and shared with the Guardian as part of a global investigation, however, suggest Zelenskiy is rather similar to his predecessors.

The leaked documents suggest he had – or has – a previously undisclosed stake in an offshore company, which he appears to have secretly transferred to a friend weeks before winning the presidential vote.

Quick Guide
What are the Pandora papers?

Show
The Pandora papers are the largest trove of leaked data exposing tax haven secrecy in history. They provide a rare window into the hidden world of offshore finance, casting light on the financial secrets of some of the world’s richest people. The files were leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), which shared access with the Guardian, BBC, and other media outlets around the world. In total, the trove consists of 11.9m files leaked from a total of 14 offshore service providers, totaling 2.94 terabytes of information. That makes it larger in volume than both the Panama papers (2016) and Paradise papers (2017), two previous offshore leaks.
Where did the Pandora documents come from?
The ICIJ, a Washington DC-based journalism nonprofit, is not identifying the source of the leaked documents. In order to facilitate a global investigation, the ICIJ gave remote access to the documents to journalists in 117 countries, including reporters at the Washington Post, Le Monde, El País, Süddeutsche Zeitung, PBS Frontline and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. In the UK, the investigation has been led by the Guardian and BBC Panorama.
What is an offshore service provider?
The 14 offshore service providers in the leak provide corporate services to individuals or companies seeking to do business offshore. Their clients are typically seeking to discreetly set up companies or trusts in lightly regulated tax havens such as the British Virgin Islands (BVI), Panama, the Cook Islands, and the US state of South Dakota. Companies registered offshore can be used to hold assets such as property, aircraft, yachts, and investments in stocks and shares. By holding those assets in an offshore company, it is possible to hide from the rest of the world the identity of the person they actually belong to, or the “beneficial owner”.
Why do people move money offshore?
Usually for reasons of tax, secrecy, or regulation. Offshore jurisdictions tend to have no income or corporation taxes, which makes them potentially attractive to wealthy individuals and companies who don’t want to pay taxes in their home countries. Although morally questionable, this kind of tax avoidance can be legal. Offshore jurisdictions also tend to be highly secretive and publish little or no information about the companies or trusts incorporated there. This can make them useful to criminals, such as tax evaders or money launderers, who need to hide money from tax or law enforcement authorities. It is also true that people in corrupt or unstable countries may use offshore providers to put their assets beyond the reach of repressive governments or criminal adversaries who may try to seize them or seek to circumvent hard currency restrictions. Others may go offshore for reasons of inheritance or estate planning.
Has everyone named in the Pandora papers done something wrong?
No. Moving money offshore is not in or of itself illegal, and there are legitimate reasons why some people do it. Not everyone named in the Pandora papers is suspected of wrongdoing. Those who are may stand accused of a wide range of misbehavior: from the morally questionable through to the potentially criminal. The Guardian is only publishing stories based on leaked documents after considering the public interest. That is a broad concept that may include furthering transparency by revealing the secret offshore owners of UK property, even where those owners have done nothing wrong. Other articles might illuminate issues of important public debate, raise moral questions, shed light on how the offshore industry operates, or help inform voters about politicians or donors in the interests of democratic accountability.
Zelensky has not commented on the claim despite extensive attempts by the Guardian and its media partners to reach him. His spokesperson Sergiy Nikiforov messaged: “Won’t be an answer.”

The files reveal Zelenskiy participated in a sprawling network of offshore companies, co-owned by his longtime friends and TV business partners. They include Serhiy Shefir, who produced Zelensky’s hit shows, and Shefir’s older brother, Borys, who wrote the scripts. Another member of the consortium is Ivan Bakanov, a childhood friend. Bakanov was general director of Zelenskiy’s production studio, Kvartal 95.

Islam is the religion of the NWO. If you want to know WHY Islam attacks on September 11, or George H. Bush’s NWO speech was 9/11, 1990 or Twin Towers was Sept. 11. O’Biden promised the USA out of Afghanistan by Sept. 11. It’s why Obama had the money-laundering operation to fund Hamas. Donald Trump said a totally true statement about the Deep State Cabal, he didn’t nor does he know how deep the Deep State is! It’s not just the treason of the money laundering operation of non-traceable gold bullion & Swiss francs to Iran by black ops so they can fund terrorism& purchase a nuclear bomb from North Korea, isn’t just the infiltration of the CIA, FBI, CIA with the Muslim Brotherhood,  
Notice there’s NO Special protection or section in the Department of Just US for Christians! Only contempt for western culture & hate for whites that aren’t sorry for being Americans. US House passed legislation on Tuesday to create a special office within the State Department to combat Islamophobia globally as Democratic leaders sought to find a way to unify their party against anti-Muslim hatred while stopping short of progressives’ calls to remove Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) from committees for her attacks on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
Lawmakers passed the bill along party lines, 219-212. Awan’s Blackmail of the DNC Congress. In March, Comey and McCabe Blocked the Arrest of Imran Awan’s Wife, p. 1
Alvi Awan was suspected of helping swindle $283,000 from banks and was busted carrying over $12,400 in undocumented cash when the FBI caught up with her at Dulles International Airport in March. 
Incredibly Awan, the wife of Imran Awan, the IT specialist & con man employed by Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who was arrested last week for bank fraud was never detained or forced to stay in the United States. Her arrest in fact was blocked by then-FBI Director James Comey and then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI sources said. 

So federal agents and Capitol Police watched as the former Democratic congressional aide & suspected bank fraudster stepped onto Qatar Airlines Flight 708 to Doha, Qatar, on her way to Lahore, Pakistan with her three daughters, bulging luggage, and $12,400 in undocumented cash — a federal crime in itself. Awan had essentially been given a license to disappear from the clutches of US law enforcement, never likely to return to the United States. She was in the wind, courtesy of the FBI. 
I imagine many of you would be shocked to hear that the Assistant Attorney for the District of Columbia Steven Wasserman is actually Debbie Wasserman Shultz’s brother. Now I want you to wrap your mind around this evil connection, remember the 2005 recording of Donald J. Trump talking mans just BS about sexy women & think who did the recording & kept it for 11 years so it could be used to attack candidate Trump to make sure an outsider did not get into exposing the DEEP STATE’s plans an operation of the NWO Bolsheviks. Just guess who that A–hole is? It was no other than Billy Bush. Born William Hall Bush, he is the son of Josephine and Jonathan Bush. His father is the younger brother of the 41st President of the United States George H. W. Bush, making Billy the nephew of George H. W. Bush and cousin of the 43rd President of the United States George W. Bush. You morons keep voting for DNC / RINOs you will not have a country! Nor you’re freedom! And in England the Labor Party that is supporting the EU!
“This was a call from the top, Comey & McCabe,” a well-placed FBI agent said. “Anyone else would have been held and with that cash, she didn’t declare she could have been locked up. The agents at Dulles wanted to hold her but they were told to stand down.”
Progressives have introduced a measure to kick Boebert off committees for her Islamophobic comments last month suggesting that Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, could be a terrorist. Understanding what is behind this issue, it isn’t about “separation “of Church & State”. That is not it! Here is what it is. Beijing O’Biden & Commie Harris, aka Spirt of Jezebel, had Gaga sing the National Anthem because it’s the reputation of the Mayflower compact / Convenient of America with God. And Beijing dismantled the 1776 Project. There is NO LIMIT to stupidity, in the DNC this is part of the 1619 project! It is an evil agenda discussed as just dumb. Everyone it is important to truly understand the Battle we are in with the Deep Globalist Islamist Bolshevik Animal Farm self-anointed ruling class that thinks they are wise. However, this isn’t just for secular freedom from Globalist tyranny it is multidimensional and has its genesis in, actually in Genesis. I know many of you may not believe in The God of Abraham that is the Father of Jesus Christ, but here is what is occurring and why the observation with attacking Christians. Everyone generally agrees that numbers mean something, I guess, right?

The Mayflower compact with God was signed on November 11, 1620. The Founding was a Convent with our God that if Blessed by God we in return would honor that Agreement with God. Its Historical & even its Legal significance cannot be overstated Nov 11, 1620 Convent played a great role that actually gave birth to the Foundation of not only the Declaration of Independence but all 4 founding documents. They are The Northwest Ordnance, The Article of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, And the United States Constitution.
So what does it take for FBI to do something besides assist the DNC in the Bolshevik Coup against Trump & his supporters? The real Coup is the DNC/CCP & a totalitarian takeover of the USA. 
Omar aka Somalia MB terrorist in Congress. “To be clear: The facts describe perhaps the most extensive spree of illegal misconduct committed by a House member in American history.” The blackmailed DNC by the information sent to ISI Pakistan aka Taliban intelligence Service.  
Tucker Carlson was right, her real family are Marxist causing the terror until she fled after the defeat of rival warlords; that’s why she is so angry with US Soldiers combatting her War Lords. Logic compels the conclusion if the US Army was fighting against her “oppressors”, but it was an elitist family that was in charge; as a ‘refugee’ seeking ‘asylum,’ don’t you think would be grateful.
Ilhan Omar’s Father was Top Propaganda Official in its Genocidal Barre Regime Then He Changed His Name and Entered US Illegally
On Thursday David Steinberg published an extensive report on the alleged crimes and history of Rep. Ilhan Omar and the “Omar” family.
In his report, David found that the Omar family changed their name in order to enter the United States.
In 1995, Ilhan entered the United States as a fraudulent member of the “Omar” family.
That isn’t her family. The Omar family is a second, unrelated family that was being granted asylum by the United States. Omars allowed Ilhan, her genetic sister Sahra, & her genetic father Nur Said to use false names to apply for asylum as members of the Omar family.
Ilhan’s genetic family split up at this time. The above three received asylum in the United States, while Ilhan’s three other siblings using their real names — managed to get asylum in the United Kingdom.
Ilhan Abdullahi Omar’s name, before applying for asylum, was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi.
Her father’s name before applying for asylum was Nur Said Elmi Mohamed. Her sister Sahra Noor’s name before applying for asylum was Sahra Nur Said Elmi. Her three siblings who were granted asylum by the United Kingdom are Leila Nur Said Elmi, Mohamed Nur Said Elmi, and Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.
Power Line also included this graphic on the Omar Elmi family. It’s no mistake this’s treason. Bringing Taliban to our military bases wasn’t a mistake, no more than purging our military of Christians via a shot mandate as a litmus test for mindless compliance. Austin & Milley are involved with the overthrow of America.

The abuse of the Un-Patriot of the NDAA was a trap set against Americans! When it was emotionally BSed out, I warned everyone it was a trap, that it Stalinistic. It suspends Habeas Corpus & limits the right of review to a year. Evil people knew what it would be used for! As in the Civil War Ar1 section 9, Habeas Corpus was not reinstituted until 1867; in the DEEP STATE’s your face John McCain assigned the NDAA the # 1867. They think everyone is stupid.
It is now used against those the FBI aka DNC/ DOJ’s Stasi to deny Bond using Deep State Globalist Judges. Most of those the product of the Obama appointments was to ‘fundamentally transformation of American. Thanks, you ill-informed DNC O’Biden supporters.

Since they’re all leftists, they should never have existed. Those they are or have prosecuted should also be forthwith pardoned, freed & their records expunged! There has been,of course, nothing remotely resemmbling rule of law or justice in those proceedings.

The Jan 6th Committee has long revealed itself as a ROGUE kangaroo court to punish supporteers of Donald Trump, a rightfully elected President. And the rules of the Geneva Convention do not apply. God rot this Committee!
