For 20 years, California Senator Dianne Feinstein used taxpayer funds to employ a Chinese spy. She hired him as her “driver” and now the infamous anti-gun leftist is in the hot seat for her alleged collusion with communist China.

New details emerged Wednesday about how a mole for the government of communist China managed to stay by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s side for nearly 20 years as her driver. Information is just now surfacing about Feinstein’s possible collusion with China. According to CBS local affiliate KPIX5, all eyes are on Chinese intelligence in the Bay Area after the website Politico reported last week that a staffer for Senator Feinstein turned out to be a Chinese spy who reported back to Communist government officials in China about the Bay Area’s local politics.

The San Francisco Chronicle uncovered additional details in a column written by reporters Phil Matier and Andy Ross.

The column revealed that the Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and was a liaison to the Asian-American community. And former FBI agent and KPIX 5 security analyst Jeff Harp said he was not surprised. “Think about Diane Feinstein and what she had access to,” said Harp. “One, she had access to the Chinese community here in San Francisco; great amount of political influence. Two, correct me if I’m wrong, Dianne Feinstein still has very close ties to the intelligence committees there in Washington, D.C.”

Harp ran counter-espionage for the FBI in the Bay Area of California. He said in addition to traditional political intel and diplomatic secrets, Bay Area spies are often focused on things like R&D, technology and trade secrets. “They [communist China] also have an interest in the economy here; how to get political influence here,” said Harp. “What’s being developed in Silicon Valley that has dual-use technology. All of that is tied to the Bay Area.” Harp pointed out politicians with access to classified information are generally trained on what not to say, but he also noted that when you have a driver behind the wheel day in and day out for 20 years, there are more opportunities to slip up.

Feinstein’s Chinese spy driver even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator at her request. Investigators at the time reportedly concluded the driver hadn’t leaked anything of substance and Feinstein forced him to retire after she acted “mortified” that she’d been infiltrated.

The FBI and Senator Feinstein’s office both refused to comment.

Whistleblower and former CIA officer Kevin Shipp stated clearly that indictments are coming for Hillary Clinton and the deep state because Donald Trump cannot be bribed.  In an interview with USA Watchdog‘s Greg Hunter, Shipp says this deep state espionage will eventually be exposed to the public.

During his discussion with Hunter, Shipp says that what Hillary Clinton did with her charity and Uranium One while she was Secretary of State was a crime for the history books.  Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas, or FOIA demands for the evidence.  This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.”

“Obviously [Hillary’s]  not stupid, she is diabolical,” says Shipp of Hillary Clinton’s decision to have an unsecured server as Secretary of State. “She knew darn well what she was doing…the Clinton Foundation is a global crime syndicate.”

Shipp continued saying, “we just found out recently that…at least 30,000 of her emails went to a foreign entity that was not on any of the distribution lists…they’re trying to figure out who that is now…this reeks of espionage to me.”

“The most bizarre thing is the people who protected her from clear felonious activity and violations of the Espionage Act.  James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, was protecting her and leaking things to the media and lying.  You had John Brennan, Director of the CIA, protecting her by starting a false investigation (on Trump) and stirring things up with this (false/unverified) dossier.  You had James Comey, Director of the FBI, protecting her. . . . Then, you’ve got Peter Strzok protecting her, and now it appears the United Kingdom GCHQ was using NSA information to target Donald Trump and protect Hillary Clinton.  You have to ask yourself what kind of power or connections does this woman have to get all of these members of the Deep State, Shadow Government to risk their own criminal penalties to protect her and try to get her elected?  That is the Shadow Government.  That is the Deep State.  That is what is so chilling about this whole thing. . . . This is deep.  This is dark.  This is as dark as it gets, and this is the biggest espionage case involving government officials in the history of this country.” -Kevin Shipp

Hunter then brings up the concerns most Americans have: no one will go to jail because the government will never implicate themselves. In response, Shipp points out that, this time, it will not be business as usual for the “Deep State and Shadow Government.”  It is possible that the people involved in this massive espionage case will charges. They are going to be brought to justice because Shipp says, “indictments are coming because of Donald Trump coming into the White House from the outside.  Trump cannot be bribed.”

On Thursday, Peter Strzok finally received his well-deserved congressional grilling, and it was quite a chaotic affair. Over nearly ten hours, there were shouting matches between Strzok and congressional Republicans, there were shouting matches between Republicans and Democrats, and there were quite a few moments that none of us will ever forget. It was a joint hearing of the House Judiciary and Oversight Committees, and the meeting room was absolutely packed. More than 70 members of the House were in attendance, and many came ready with some very pointed questions. The following are five of the most controversial moments from Peter Strzok’s ten hour testimony to Congress…

#5 Bob Goodlatte asks Strzok how he can “smell” Trump supporters at a Wal-Mart in southern Virginia…

#4 John Ratcliffe confronts Strzok about using “official FBI phones” on “official FBI time” to talk to Lisa Page about “stopping Trump” and “impeaching Trump”. The following comes from CNN

“When you said you never crossed that bright, inviolable line, what you meant to say was except for 50,000 times, except for hundreds of times a day where I went back and forth, expressing my personal opinions about ‘f’ing’ Trump and stopping Trump and impeaching Trump on official FBI phones, on official FBI time,” said Rep. John Ratcliffe of Texas.

“Agent Strzok, are you starting to understand why some folks out there don’t believe a word you say?” he added.

#3 Darrell Issa forces Strzok to read back some of the anti-Trump text messages that he sent to Lisa Page…

#2 Trey Gowdy uses his extensive legal skills to absolutely grill Strzok about his contradictory statements…

#1 Congressman Gohmert went where nobody else was willing to go when he asked Strzok “how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?” The following comes from CNN

“I’ve talked to FBI agents around the country. You’ve embarrassed them; you’ve embarrassed yourself,” Gohmert said. “And I can’t help but wonder, when I see you looking there with a little smirk, how many times did you look so innocent into your wife’s eye and lie to her about Lisa Page?”

You can see video of this exchange between Strzok and Congressman Gohmert right here

If it was virtually anyone else, I would feel very badly for them.

But if this is the worst that Strzok gets, then he will be getting off very easy.

Strzok definitely qualifies as a member of “the deep state”, and it is very rare for anyone in “the deep state” to be held accountable on this level.

We are in a struggle for the soul of our government, and if we ever hope to turn things around we have got to clean out swamp creatures such as Peter Strzok. I believe that Thursday’s hearing was certainly a step in the right direction, and hopefully Congress will do much more to restore our faith in the integrity of our law enforcement agencies.

The Deep State is alive and well, according to Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.

Appearing on “The Laura Ingraham Show” a few weeks ago, the libertarian-leaning former presidential candidate explained that individuals currently in national security positions are essentially free to exercise their power without any checks from elected representatives.

“Absolutely, there is a deep state, because the deep state is the intelligence agencies that do not have oversight,” Paul explained. “Only eight people in Congress know what they’re doing, and traditionally, those eight people have been a rubber stamp to let the intelligence communities do whatever they want. There is no skeptic among the eight people that are supposedly overseeing the intelligence community.”

It goes without saying that even though the intelligence community is supposed to rise above politics and carry out its functions in a bipartisan way, just like nearly every other American institution, it is susceptible to corruption. The difference, however, is that contrary to how most other levels of government operate, the intelligence community doesn’t have a system of checks to prevent it from engaging in activities that fall outside of legal and constitutional parameters – throw rampant corruption into the mix, and you’ve got a recipe for disaster.

The Kentucky senator went on to say that the deep state was on full display within Barack Obama’s administration, specifically with CIA Director John Brennan and National Intelligence Director James Clapper.

“John Brennan and James Clapper were doing whatever the hell they wanted, without any judicial warrants, and I think there were numerous people in the Obama administration who were using intelligence – one, to try to bring Trump down; but two, also, they were using it for political purposes,” he explained, adding that “this is very, very worrisome.”

Indeed, it is very worrisome, because the worse the corruption within the FBI and the intelligence community gets, the closer our country gets to a constitutional crisis of epic proportions. Without any checks or oversight, the intelligence community is basically free to do whatever it wants, and that includes acting in a partisan fashion to both defend and attack people based solely on political ideologies.

One of the most blatant examples of corruption and abuse of power within the intelligence community has to do with how Robert Mueller is carrying out this investigation into Trump’s alleged “collusion” with the Russians in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential election. This is the same investigation that Tom Fitton, the president of conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, referred to as “corruption at its worst.”

First and foremost, it’s very odd – almost too odd – that the majority of people Robert Mueller recruited for his investigative team are liberal democrats who have a history of supporting, financially or otherwise, left wing politicians and organizations. How anyone can look at the partisanship of Mueller’s team and still conclude that Mueller is a fair and balanced investigator is beyond comprehension.

Additionally, the Daily Wire recently reported that Robert Mueller is investigating a $150,000 donation made to Donald Trump’s charity back in 2015 by a Ukrainian businessman, while simultaneously ignoring the fact that this same Ukrainian businessman has donated anywhere between $10 million and $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. Furthermore, this same businessman (whose name is Victor Pinchuk) even lent his private plane to the Clintons back in 2011 to attend Bill Clinton’s 65th birthday celebration in Los Angeles.

For many, this sort of blatant hypocrisy and corruption within the intelligence community demonstrates two things: first, that the investigation into Trump/Russia collusion has turned into an all-out witch hunt, and second, that there is, in fact, a deep state within the federal government.

U.S. Right to Know sued the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today over CDC’s failure to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and provide documents in response to six requests about its interactions with The Coca-Cola Company.

The public records requests are part of an investigation USRTK is conducting into Coca-Cola’s influence at the CDC and the company’s impact on public policy. Public health evidence suggests that the consumption of sugary sodas is implicated in the obesity epidemic, and may be responsible for tens of thousands of deaths per year. Nevertheless, evidence gathered to date indicates that CDC staff provided political guidanceto Coca-Cola, allowed Coca-Cola to lobby the CDC, and accepted contributions from Coca-Cola via the CDC Foundation, which has disclosed such contributions as recently as last year.

“We are suing the CDC to uncover the extent and nature of the CDC’s relationship with Coca-Cola,” said Gary Ruskin, co-director of U.S. Right to Know, a consumer and public health watchdog group. “Just as it is wrong for the CDC to assist tobacco companies, it is also wrong for CDC to assist obesogenic companies like Coca-Cola.”

Since 2016, USRTK has filed 19 FOIA requests with the CDC. With the documents we received via FOIA from CDC and other sources, we helped expose former CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald’s collegial relationship with Coca-Cola and the company’s former VP and Chief Science and Health Officer Rhona Applebaum in the New York Times and The Intercept.

We also revealed that Barbara Bowman, then-director of CDC’s Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, had advised a former Coca-Cola senior vice president on how to stop the World Health Organization from cracking down on added sugar.  Bowman quit the CDC two days after her advice to the former Coca-Cola executive was revealed.

We also helped to uncover CDC staff concerns that CDC’s “mission is being shaped by outside parties and rogue interests” and their call to “clean up this house.”

More findings in our investigation of Coca-Cola’s influence at the CDC are available at: usrtk.org/our-investigations/#coca-cola.

On December 15, 2017, USRTK filed six FOIA requests with the CDC regarding its relationship to Coca-Cola.  The CDC acknowledged receipt of these FOIA requests four days later, but has not provided any other response.  The FOIA law states that federal agencies are required to respond within 20 business days.

According to the Coca-Cola transparency database, Coca-Cola contributed $1.1 million to the CDC Foundation during 2010-12.  But Coca-Cola has not disclosed contributions to the CDC Foundation after 2012.  The CDC Foundation discloses such contributions, but not the amounts, in the years 2017, 2016, and 2015none of which are disclosed by Coca-Cola.

Both the CDC and Coca-Cola are based in Atlanta.

CDC has been swept up in two recent scandals. On January 31, CDC Director Brenda Fitzgerald quit her post, following a Politico article raising questions about her investments in tobacco and other companies. On December 15, the Washington Post reported that CDC had banned a list of seven words or phrases – such as “evidence-based” and “science-based” – from budget documents.

The USRTK FOIA lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.  The USRTK complaint is available at: https://usrtk.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/USRTK-v-HHS-complaint.pdf.  The name of the case is U.S. Right to Know v. Department of Health and Human Services. USRTK is represented in this matter by the law office of Mark S. Zaid.

U.S. Right to Know is a nonprofit consumer and public health organization that investigates the risks associated with the corporate food system, and the food industry’s practices and influence on public policy.  For more information, see usrtk.org.
