News Story

No, FBI Agent Wasn’t Murdered to Cover Up Clinton Scandal

By Steve Neavling

Conspiracy theorists are peddling a false narrative that an FBI agent was murdered as part of a conspiracy to keep him quiet about corruption by Hillary Clinton.

The origin of the far-fetched story appears to come from a fake news site, Neon Nettle

An FBI Special Agent, who was anticipated to expose the extent of Clinton and Obama malpractice and corruption in the “Operation Fast and Furious” cover-up before a US Federal Grand Jury, has been found dead at his home.

The FBI official’s wife was also found dead at the scene with the couple both being murdered using the 52-year-old agent’s own gun.Special Agent David Raynor was “stabbed multiple times” and “shot twice with his own weapon,” according to local media reports. Raynor’s tragic death comes just one day before he was due to testify before a US Federal Grand Jury.

He was widely expected to testify that Hillary Clinton acted illegally to protect Obama administration crimes while covering up the Fast and Furious scandal.

But the fact-checking website Snopes puts that theory to rest, citing Anne Arundel County Police Lt. Ryan Frashure, who said Raynor killed himself.

“There is nothing in the investigation that turned up evidence indicating it’s anything other than a domestic-related suicide,” Frashure said. “When our officers confronted [Raynor], he committed suicide in front of our officers. He was given verbal commands to drop the weapon, and when [officers] were approaching him, that’s when he put the gun to his head.”

Snopes continues:

Investigators believe Raynor stabbed his 54-year-old wife, Donna Fisher, to death near their home in Crownsville, Maryland, before killing himself. The couple had been in the midst of divorce proceedings and, Frashure said, were “having serious domestic issues.” The week they died they were in court fighting over custody of their 10-year-old daughter.

According to investigators, no evidence suggests Raynor’s death was in any way connected to the Fast and Furious operation, an Obama-era “gunwalking” scandal. Moreover, “Fast and Furious” had nothing to do with Hillary Clinton’s State Department, as it involved the Phoenix division of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF), an organization within the United States Department of Justice (DOJ).

Neon Nettle’s sole documentation for their claim that Raynor died “just one day before he was due to testify before a US Federal Grand Jury” was a link to an eight-month-old news articleabout the shooting death of a Baltimore homicide detective, an article that made no mention of David Raynor, the FBI, Hillary Clinton, or “Fast and Furious.” (The slain detective was scheduled to testify before a federal grand jury, but that case was about Baltimore police accused of shaking down citizens and conspiring with drug dealers, not about the ATF and gunwalking in Arizona.)

Michael Cohen’s secretly recorded conversation with Donald Trump in 2016 reveals the president mentioned “cash” while discussing a possible payment to a former Playboy model Karen McDougal who claims she had an affair with Trump.

Longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

The newly released audio was captured by Cohen, who was Trump’s attorney, as the two discussed “how to set the whole thing up with funding.”

Trump responds, “What financing” before appearing today, “pay with cash.”

Cohen quickly interrupts, saying, “No, no, no, no no, I got …” before the recording cuts off.

The recording is significant because the audio indicates Trump was aware of allegations of the affair and plans to pay McDougal to keep her quiet.

Judge Delays Manafort Trial, Reveals Names of Witnesses Promised Immunity

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

A federal judge on Monday delayed the start date for Paul Manafort’s trial and revealed the identities of five witnesses who were offered immunity to testify against President Trump’s former campaign chairman.

Judge T.S. Ellis approved the Manafort’s request to postpone the trial date to July 31 and unsealed the names of the five prospective witnesses: Dennis Raico, Cindy Laporta, Conor O’Brien, Donna Duggan, and James Brennan.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s legal team requested that the names remain anonymous, but the judge wouldn’t agree.

Some news reports indicated the witnesses were tied to financial institutions in which Manafort is accused of hiding money he made working as a consultant overseas.

Manafort has been charged with money laundering and tax evasion, along other crimes.

Former Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Says He’s Considering Running for President

Former Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. tells Stephen Colbert that he’s thinking fo running for president in 2020.

“What I’ve said is that I’d make a determination sometime early next year. My focus, really, now, is on 2018, the midterms and trying to make sure that Democrats take back the Senate, take back the House and do well, importantly, at the state level,” Holder said.

Holder said with redistricting scheduled for 2021 and “a real problem with partisan gerrymandering” he wants “to make sure we elect as many people as possible at the governor level, at the state legislature level, that when 2021 comes, we have a fair redistricting process.”

He also defended the controversial FISA warrant in the Russia investigation, saying it was clearly not all based on the infamous Steele dossier.

InfoWars Alex Jones Threatens to Shoot Mueller, Calls Him a Pedophile

InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones threatened to shoot special counsel Robert Mueller and called him a “monster” who was involved in a child sex ring involving Democrats.

Jones made the threat and outlandish allegations on his nearly three-hour InfoWars broadcast Monday.

After accusing Mueller of violent sex acts with children, the insidious host created a hypothetical “wild west” shootout with Mueller, who is investigating whether President Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia during the presidential election.

“I’m constantly in fear that I’m not being a real man, and I’m not doing what it takes, and I’m not telling the truth. And so, call it whatever you want, I look at that guy, and he’s a sack of crap,” Jones said.

Giuliani: Trump Will Talk to Mueller Collusion But Not Obstruction of Justice

Donald Trump’s attorney Rudolph Giuliani said the president would agree to an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller as long as the questions are limited to whether his campaign colluded with Russia.

Giuliani told Bloomberg News that Trump would not agree to an interview about whether he obstructed justice in the Russia investigation. 

Mueller has yet to respond to the proposal.

Giuliani and other lawyers for the president are worried he will commit perjury if Mueller believes witnesses who claim Trump obstructed justice.

Trump insisted he would sit down for an interview with Mueller but has balked since, saying the decision is up to his legal team.

Former FBI Chief Comey Urges Voters to Support Dems, But Avoid ‘Socialist Left’

Former FBI Director James Comey on A?BC’s 20/20.

Former FBI Director James Comey urged Democrats on Sunday to avoid embracing the “socialist left,” just days after he encouraged voters to support Democrats in the fall elections.

Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left,” Comey tweeted Sunday afternoon. “This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.”

On Tuesday, Comey tweeted that people “who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall” after congressional Republicans failed to adequately denounce President Trump after praising Russian President Vladimir Putin at a time when the Kremlin is suspected of continuing to meddle in American elections.

Trump fired Comey in May, prompting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller, in part, to determine if the FBI director’s termination amounted to obstruction of justice.

Comey took another jab at Trump Monday evening.
