Congressional Subpoenas Go Out to Uncooperative Abortion Providers, Profiteers, Operation Rescue Be the first to comment

Capdome
By Cheryl Sullenger


Washington, DC – The Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives has announced that it will begin issuing subpoenas next week to two businesses and one publicly-funded university in an attempt to obtain information in its investigation of abortion abuses. All three institutions have been uncooperative with the Select Panel’s requests to voluntarily provide information to the Committee.
Chairman Marsha Blackburn released a statement on Thursday indicating that subpoenas would go out to the following:
Stem Express, a California organ procurement company that profited from contracts with Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses for the purchase of aborted baby remains for “research” according to video and documents obtained by the Center for Medical Progress.
University of New Mexico, a tax-funded institution that operates a free-standing abortion business, UNM Center for Reproductive Health, and also has a relationship with Southwestern Women’s Options to provide emergency hospital care for its frequent patients that suffer life-threatening abortion-related complications.
Southwestern Women’s Options, an abortion facility that conducts abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Documentation obtained by Tara Shaver of Protest Albuquerque shows an alarming pattern of abortion injuries at this facility, which takes advantage of New Mexico’s lack of abortion laws to conduct very late abortions that are illegal in other states.
“It will be interesting to see what happens next. The subpoenas will set up a showdown between the rule of law and those who routinely act outside it. Will there be compliance with the subpoenas or will these members of the Abortion Cartel continue to behave as if they are above the law?” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We hope there is compliance, but the Committee must be prepared for the same arrogant defiance we have seen so often in the past.”


Operation Rescue has worked with Shaver to expose the safety issues posed by Southwestern Women’s Options, which is ill-equipped to handle complications that can arise from risky late-second and third trimester abortions. Last month Operation Rescue named Southwestern Women’s Options among the six most dangerous abortion businesses in the U.S.


According to a consent form obtained by Shaver, the remains of babies aborted at Southwestern Women’s Options, are automatically used in research. Since the “consent” for research is buried in the same consent form for the abortion, it is doubtful many women even realize their babies are being turned into fodder for laboratory experimentation.


In addition, Operation Rescue and Shaver have often teamed up to expose the University of New Mexico’s participation in abortion and their efforts to protect and advance dangerous, unrestricted abortion in that state.


“This is a unique opportunity for the Committee to tear off the veil of secrecy that is protecting a corrupt system that is shielding abortion businesses from responsibility for substandard operations that is brutally killing babies just weeks or days from delivery and endangering the lives of women every day,” said Newman.


So far, Stem Express, UNM, and Southwestern Women’s Options have been uncooperative with efforts by the Committee to obtain information from them on a voluntary basis.


Blackburn revealed that the Committee has sent out over 30 letters requesting information to aid the investigation, which has now expanded beyond the topic of fetal tissue trafficking by Planned Parenthood.


Donald Trump’s Emotional TV Ad Slams Illegal Immigration in Pitch to South Carolina

Donald Trump has rolled out a hard-hitting and emotional TV ad in South Carolina that shows how African-Americans are suffering from illegal immigration.


“Jas Shaw was a 17-year-old football star who was gunned down just outside his home. His killer? An illegal immigrant gang member who just got out of prison,” says the narrator. “Jas’s dad, Jamiel, is supporting Donald Trump for president because he knows he will end illegal immigration.”
Shaw’s dad delivers the emotional pitch to African-Americans, who comprise a large proportion of South Carolina, where the GOP’s next primaries will be held Feb. 20. “Trump is the only one saying, ‘You going to be dealt with, we’re going to enforce that… We’re going to enforce that,'” the father says in the video. “That’s a beautiful thing,” he adds.
“I believe Donald Trump wants to make us great again, and he loves America,” the father says.

African-Americans have been hit hard by large-scale legal and illegal immigration since 2000. Their wages and their accumulated wealth, plus their collective political power, have been hammered as one million legal migrants enter the country each year to join the resident population of roughly 11 million illegal migrants.
In 2013, for example, President Barack Obama chose to add roughly two million foreign workers to the economy, just as four million 18-year-old Americans — including roughly 650,000 young African-Americans — began looking for jobs. Many polls show that Americans overwhelmingly oppose the award of jobs to foreigners before Americans find jobs.
In an early-February statement to Breitbart News, Trump’s campaign also said he would push for a reduction in legal immigration.
I will support legislation to reduce the numbers, and will oppose legislation to increase the numbers. I have laid out a detailed plan to accomplish this goal on my website www.DonaldJTrump.com. My suggested reforms include a requirement to give all open jobs to Americans first — instead of importing foreign replacements. This plan will appeal to voters from all walks of life by making it easier for workers in this country to find jobs and support their families. It will also help minority workers, youth, and previous immigrants who face intense job competition from waves of incoming foreign workers.

According to the Feb. 12 press statement released by the campaign:
Mr. Trump says, ‘People wouldn’t be talking about illegal immigration had I not brought it up when I announced I was running for President. It is a massive problem in our country and now everybody agrees with me — bad for crime and the economy. A wonderful young man, Jamiel Shaw Jr., whose father has become a friend of mine, was shot in the face for no reason by an illegal immigrant. He was getting ready to go to college on a football scholarship and his sole fault was walking home to see his father. Because of the relationship I have established with his father, Jamiel’s death is very personal to me. We must stop illegal immigration.’
Jamiel Shaw added, ‘Donald Trump is the only person fighting to put American families first. He will protect our children and put an end to these senseless acts of violence that are caused by our failed policies and broken immigration system. Donald Trump has made it clear he, like most Americans, want to return the rule of law to the people of this country. Without strong borders we don’t have a country. Strong border enforcement is the first step to preventing future tragedies. We must secure our borders and return those who came here illegally to their native lands. Donald Trump is a man who stands for what is right. He stands for America and I stand with him.’
The South Carolina primary will be held Feb. 20.


Donald Trump: I’m very capable of changing my tone to anything I want to change it to...


GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump says he’ll likely change his tone as he gets closer to the White House and that he’s capable of changing to whatever he wants to.

“As I get closer and closer to the goal, it’s going to get different,” Mr. Trump said in an interview that ran Wednesday on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

“We started off … 17 people. Now we’re down to not very many people,” he said. “And once you get to a certain level, it changes. I will be changing very rapidly.”

“I’m very capable of changing to anything I want to change to,” the real estate mogul said.

Mr. Trump had been asked whether people can expect cleaner or softer language from him. He again explained his repeating a vulgar term a supporter used to describe Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas at a rally earlier in the week.

“Well, sometimes I’ll copy other people’s language,” he said. “A woman got up and used a little bit of a bad word, and I said, ‘Don’t you dare use that word,’ and everyone said, ‘What’s the word?’ and I said, ‘Here’s the word, but she used it; not me.’ We were just having fun.”

“I re-used her word,” he said. “I will tell you, the place stood up. … It was like a standing ovation. It’s called politically correct. We’re too politically correct.”


Trump and Sanders Put Establishment on Notice

                                                  By shawn
The revolution became reality on Tuesday night when both parties’ establishment candidates were crushed beneath the anti-Washington sentiment growing all over the country. In New Hampshire, both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders soared to victory, turning poll numbers into votes for the first time. If Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, and the rest of the political elite were lying to themselves before, they can no longer pretend that this is a phantom movement.
“We are going to make America great again,” Trump said in his victory speech. “We are going now to South Carolina. We are gonna win in South Carolina!”
Though both Trump and Sanders suffered defeat in Iowa, their New Hampshire comebacks were decisive. Trump won with more than 35% of the vote in a ridiculously-crowded field while Sanders finished more than 20 points ahead of Clinton in the Democratic race.
Naturally, the media has been focused on the strong second place showing by John Kasich as well as the abysmal showing from Chris Christie. Kasich surged to take 16% of the vote, but Christie only managed to get about half of that. After the night was finished, the New Jersey governor’s campaign came to an end as well. Christie announced Wednesday that he was pulling out of the race.
That leaves Bush, Kasich, and Marco Rubio to battle it out for the establishment vote as the race moves into the South. Rubio, who was flying high just a week ago after his performance in Iowa, has seen his stock tumble following a poor showing at the last Republican debate. If anyone is happy to see Christie gone, it’s Rubio.
Then, of course, there is Ted Cruz. Cruz came in third in New Hampshire, a respectable follow-up to his win in Iowa. If voters have been turned off by accusations thrown against him by Ben Carson, it didn’t seem to show. No one other than Trump has been as mercilessly attacked as Cruz; if he’s still hanging in strong, he could very well be the one to watch as this race gets going.
On the other side of the aisle, Bernie Sanders said his victory was just the first step towards the White House. “Tonight, we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California,” he said.
Clinton tried her best to wave off the landslide loss, telling her supporters that it was the outcome they always expected. “I want to say I still love New Hampshire and I always will,” Clinton said. “Now we take this campaign to the entire country. We are going to fight for every vote in every state.”
But if the first primary in the nation is any indication, both liberals and conservatives are in the market for something new.


MUSLIM REFUGEE INFLICTS 'CARNAGE' INSIDE OHIO RESTAURANT

Police refuse to ID machete-wielding assailant, witnesses describe 'systematic attack'

The Nazareth Mediterranean Restaurant in Columbus, Georgia, was attacked by a suspected Muslim man from Somalia Thursday night.
A Muslim man from Somalia, likely a refugee or son of a refugee, attacked patrons at a restaurant owned by a Christian Arab Israeli in Columbus, Ohio, Thursday night but police are refusing to release the suspect’s name.
CBS News was first to identify the attacker, who entered the Nazareth Mediterranean Restaurant with a machete and began slashing people, as a Somali man named Mohamed Barry.
“He came to each table and just started hitting them,” one of the diners, Karen Bass, told CBS News. “There was a man on the floor bleeding, there was blood on the floor. It was awful. It was just carnage.”
Four people were wounded in the knife attack, one critically.
The owner of the restaurant, Hany Baransi, who is a Christian Arab from Israel, said he had not taken a day off since Jan. 2 but took off Thursday night because of a migraine headache. He is a proud Israeli citizen who flies the Israeli flag in his restaurant.
“Obviously we were targeted because there’s a whole bunch of businesses around here,” he told the Columbus Dispatch.
As an Arab Christian who supports Israel, he described himself as “the minor, minor, minor of the minority. So nobody likes me.”
Watch restaurant owner Hany Baransi’s interview with the Columbus Dispatch:
Police said the man entered the restaurant and asked for the owner.
He came back about an hour later with the machete and started hacking patrons.
"This was a brutal attack," said Sgt. Rich Weiner, with Columbus Police. "The second time, nothing was said. He just came in and started the attack."
Two men left the restaurant and called 911 while others threw chairs at the attacker and tried to stop him. The suspect fled and after a five-mile chase he exited his car with the machete. That's when officers shot him dead.
The attacker may have traveled to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, in 2012, CBS reported, citing federal law enforcement officials.
Columbus a favorite dumping ground for Somali refugees
Columbus is home to the second-largest Somali-American community after Minneapolis.
And how did all the Somalis get in Columbus?
As WND has reported in a series of articles, the main route into the United States for Somali nationals is through the refugee resettlement program. The U.S government has since 1992 worked with the United Nations to permanently resettle more than 110,000 Somali refugees into dozens of U.S. cities, including Minneapolis, Columbus, San Diego, and smaller cities in Maine, Texas, Idaho, Washington, Georgia, Michigan, Colorado and Texas.
More than 99 percent of Somali refugees are Sunni Muslims and the FBI has confirmed that at least 40 young Somali men have left their adopted homeland since 2007 to join the ranks of foreign terrorist organizations including al-Shabab in Somalia and ISIS in Syria.
Columbus has been a major recipient of Somali refugees over the years. Since 2002 the U.S. State Department has delivered 7,020 Somali refugees to Ohio, and 5,852 of them have been sent to Columbus, according to the federal refugee database.
CBS News homeland security correspondent Jeff Pegues reported that investigators were searching for a motive, running down leads to try to determine if the attack was "somehow tied to terrorist organizations."
The FBI has refused to comment but local media are reported it is being investigated as a "lone wolf" attack while the event has so far received little attention in the national media.
"There was no rhyme or reason as to who he was going after," said Weiner.
Cruz, Sessions demand Obama stop hiding jihad attacks
It took more than five months for the Justice Department to decide that the July 2015 mass shooting that killed five U.S. servicemen in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as a terrorist attack. That attack was carried out by Mohammed Youssef Abdulazeez, who emigrated to the U.S. from Kuwait with his parents at the age of 6.
The 2012 attack by Maj. Nidal Hason at Fort Hood, Texas, that killed 13 soldiers was ruled "workplace violence."
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, recently sent a letter calling on the Obama administration to stop covering up the arrests of Muslim jihadists inside the U.S.
The letter states that since early 2014 there have been 113 arrests of Muslims implicated in terrorist activity on U.S. soil and the Obama administration refuses to provide an immigration history on any of them. Most of the cases have received little or no coverage in the national media.
The restaurant in Ohio remains closed while police investigate.




Romney spending MILLIONS to take down Trump?

FEBRUARY 12, 2016


For months GOP frontrunner Donald Trump has largely shrugged off criticism from the mainstream Republican establishment.
But it’s the latest attack campaign from an unusual opponent — a super PAC with ties to former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney — that has Trump fired up.
Founded by veteran Republican strategist and former Romney deputy campaign manager Katie Packer, the Our Principles PAC’s goal is single-minded: Stop Trump, no matter the cost.
The group  spent over $2.5 million in anti-Trump commercials, mailers, and fliers leading up to the Iowa caucus and claimed credit for Trump’s second-place finish there.
“Romney is doing a PAC, because Romney feels badly… because frankly that was an election that he should have won,” Trump said of the attacks on Wednesday on an appearance on Fox News.
The group has turned their sites on South Carolina’s Feb. 20th primary, announcing an all-out blitz of attack ads against Trump, according to The State.
“They should have devoted more time to Mitt Romney and helped him win instead of looking at, you know, taking other people down.” Trump said.
With polls suggesting Trump has a healthy lead in South Carolina, his opponents seem increasingly desperate to sap his momentum in the state and moving forward.


[Exposed] Clinton subpoenaed in federal probe

It looks like there is more trouble ahead for Hillary Clinton’s campaign — this time thanks to her family’s controversial foundation.
An investigation by the Washington Post has revealed that the Clinton Foundation received a subpoena from State Department investigators in October over some work it did during Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State that may have been forbidden.
And, with the presidential nominating contest ongoing, it looks like the State Department and the Clintons did everything they could to keep the news about the subpoena from going public.
The exact details of the investigation are unknown — but may not be too difficult to piece together.
Hillary Clinton signed a detailed agreement with the State Department before she became secretary of state in 2009. The agreement dealt heavily with the Clintons’ work with foreign governments, trying to eliminate conflicts of interest.
The Clinton Foundation has repeatedly come under fire for its financial ties to countries like China, Iran and Russia. Hillary Clinton was even accused of helping to facilitate a uranium deal that benefited Russia after donations poured in to the Clinton Foundation.
Could the subpoena involve possible conflicts of interest regarding relationships between the Clinton Foundation and foreign governments during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state?
If so, it wouldn’t be the first time the foundation has been scrutinized for this. In November, the foundation was forced to file revised tax returns for four years, including changes that reflect millions of dollars in grants donated by foreign governments during the years that Clinton served as secretary of state.
According to the Washington Post report, “the subpoena also asked for records related to Huma Abedin, a longtime Clinton aide who for six months in 2012 was employed simultaneously by the State Department, the foundation, Clinton’s personal office, and a private consulting firm with ties to the Clintons.”


No, It Doesn’t Matter That Bernie Sanders Is Ethnically Jewish. He’s a Jew In Name Only.

AP Photo/Cheryl SenterBY: BEN SHAPIRO
The media have suddenly discovered that socialist loonbag old man screaming at the moon Senator Bernie Sanders is ethnically Jewish. And they’re overjoyed – now, instead of two old white people running against each other for the Democratic nomination, they’ve got The First Female President™ and The First Jewish President™!
There’s only one problem: Sanders isn’t Jewish in any real sense.
There are two types of Jewishness: ethnic Judaism and actual belief in and practice of Judaism. By the first standard, Sanders is Jewish; by the second, not in the slightest.
When people talk about ethnic Jewishness, there are two standards: the Nazi standard, and the Judaic standard. The non-Jewish standard of Jewish ethnicity means having a Jewish ancestor; by that standard, the first major party nominee of Jewish descent was Barry Goldwater, who had a Jewish father and a non-Jewish mother. The Jewish standard of Jewish ethnicity means having a Jewish mother; by that standard, Sanders would be the first major party nominee of Jewish ethnicity.
But practicing Jews – Jews who take the Torah and mitzvoth (commandments) seriously – don’t care about ethnic Jewishness beyond the fact that you’re obligated to perform commandments if you’re ethnically Jewish. Practicing Jews care whether you actually take Judaism seriously. As Iwrote back in 2011:
Being Jewish is not like being black or Asian or Hispanic. It comes with certain attendant ideological responsibilities. There is no logical or inherent connection between skin color and liberalism or conservatism -- melanin has no political playbook. Jewish identity, however, does. There is more to being truly Jewish than being born into a Jewish family, just as there is more to being Christian than being baptized.

Being truly Jewish requires allegiance to basic Judaic principles; the first and foremost of which is identity with the Jewish people and its enlightened national aspirations. In the Tanach (the Jewish canon, including the Old Testament, the Prophets and the Writings), when Ruth converts to Judaism, she states, "Your people will be my people and your God my God." The connection between Jews and the land of Israel is the running theme of the Old Testament. Any Jew who does not take these principles seriously -- more seriously than global warming or affirmative action, for example -- is a JINO.

Sanders is an avowed atheist who believes the Bible is mumbo-jumbo and the state of Israel a villain in the world community. Here’s what he told Jimmy Kimmel about Judaism:
Kimmel: You say you’re culturally Jewish, you don’t feel religious.  Do you believe in God, and do you think that’s important to the people of the United States?
Sanders:  Well, you know, I am who I am.  And what I believe in and what my spirituality is about is that we’re all in this together. That I think it is not a good thing to believe that, as human beings, we can turn our backs on the suffering of other people. And you know, this is not Judaism.
When Sanders pretends at religion, he speaks about God the way Obi Wan-Kenobi speaks about The Force: “I believe that there is a connection between all living things.”

He’s anti-Israel – his new advisors on Israel include one who has compared Israelis to Nazis and says Jews are perpetrating a Holocaust against Palestinians. He’s teamed up with Israel-hating J Street, the left’s favorite anti-Israel faux-Jewish front organization, former Assistant Secretary of Defense Larry Korb, and Arab American Institute anti-Israel ragemaster James Zogby. And, of course, Sanders supported the Iran deal that endangers Israel’s existence, and routinely accuses Israel of “overreacting” against Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

So no, Bernie Sanders isn’t the first Jewish president. He’s no more Jewish than Noam Chomsky or Sidney Blumenthal. Our media are just looking for an excuse to play the “First Ethnicity Democrat,” as always – even though ethnicity should mean nothing to voters, and represents nothing but a racist appeal.



GOP chief denies establishment fear of Trump nomination

In an apparent effort to discredit suggestions that the GOP establishment is terrified that Donald Trump will get the party’s nomination, Republican National Committee head Reince Priebus said he’ll support whoever the voters select.
In an interview with CBS, Priebus insisted that any of the current GOP candidates would have an edge over “Hillary Clinton, who is under investigation by the FBI, or a socialist from Vermont.”
The RNC chairman also insisted that no establishment GOP donors have expressed serious concerns about a Trump nomination.
“Honestly, I don’t hear that,” he said. “In a competition, sure, candidates say, ‘I’m going to be the best choice; this person isn’t going to be that great.’
That happens all the time. After a while, when you have six serious competitors out there on the campaign stump every day, you hear all kinds of things.”
When pressed about rifts in the Republican Party, Priebus noted that anyone looking for controversy ought to have plenty of fodder on the Democratic side.
“We’ve got some drama and intrigue going on in the Republican Party, but if you look at what’s going on in the Democratic Party, it is a complete and total train wreck,” he said. “At least we have people who are working really hard to fight and claw their way to the nomination.
“I think if you look at where we’re at as a party, if you look at where the Democrats are at, I think most people believe we’re in a pretty darn good place.”


Huma Abedin and the Tangled Clinton Web

BY ANDREW C. MCCARTHY FEBRUARY 12, 2016

Almost a month ago, Fox News reported that the FBI’s investigation of possible national security violations stemming from Hillary Clinton’s private email system had expanded to include a corruption angle, centered on the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation and the possibility that Foundation donors received favorable government treatment during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.
The Fox report prompted indignant denials from Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign that there had been any broadening of the probe. Yet, the government is not required to disclose the course of its investigation publicly, much less to its subjects. And now, there are additional indications that the government is indeed scrutinizing the cozy relations the State Department enjoyed during Secretary Hillary Clinton’s tenure with both the Clinton Foundation and a Clinton-connected consulting firm called Teneo.
Last autumn, according to the Washington Post, the State Department’s inspector general (IG) issued subpoenas to the Clinton Foundation. The IG’s office has authority to investigate wrongdoing at the Department, including criminal wrongdoing. Its conclusions may be referred to the Justice Department for possible prosecution, and may also result in other forms of disciplinary action against government officials found to have committed misconduct. The subpoenas served on the Clinton Foundation reportedly focused on two areas of inquiry: (a) Clinton Foundation projects that may have required federal government approval during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state; and (b) Clinton Foundation records pertaining to the employment of Huma Abedin.
Ms. Abedin, a longtime Clinton confidante, served as Secretary Clinton’s deputy chief-of-staff at the State Department and is now vice chairwoman of Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 campaign for the presidency.
For about a half-year toward the end of Abedin’s tenure at the State Department, which coincided with Secretary Clinton’s own departure from the State Department in February 2013, Abedin was given a highly unusual and ethically dubious arrangement. She was permitted to work simultaneously for the State Department, Teneo, the Clinton Foundation, and even in a personal capacity for Mrs. Clinton in order to manage the secretary’s transition back to the private sector (notwithstanding that Mrs. Clinton had a job waiting for her at the lavishly funded Clinton Foundation, from which she would oversee her 2016 campaign-in-waiting).
Ordered Liberty readers will recall that Ms. Abedin has been the subject of controversy. Several years ago, five House conservatives asked State’s IG to investigate how Abedin managed to receive a security clearance despite extensive family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and to an al-Qaeda financier whose “charity” was designated a terrorist organization by the government.
At the time, senior Republicans attacked the House conservatives, despite the fact that the latter were not alleging any wrongdoing on Abedin’s part -- they were merely and sensibly questioning the propriety of the government’s granting a security clearance to someone of Abedin’s background.
In light of new revelations in the Clinton email scandal, which place Abedin in the center of the mishandling of classified information through Mrs. Clinton’s homebrew server system, the concerns of the House conservatives seem prescient.
Ms. Abedin, of course, is married to former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. The wedding ceremony was performed by former President Clinton in July 2010. Less than a year later, Weiner was enmeshed in a “sexting” scandal involving the sending of sexually explicit photographs of himself to young women. He vehemently denied the allegations until undeniable proof mounted, at which point he apologized and resigned in disgrace. At the time, Ms. Abedin was pregnant -- the couple’s son was born in December 2011. Weiner attempted a political comeback in 2013, running for mayor of New York City with the strong support of his wife. His campaign went up in flames, however, when news emerged that he had continued sexting (under the pseudonym “Carlos Danger”) for more than a year after leaving Congress over it.
Abedin’s tenure at the State Department has already been the subject of an investigation for financial self-dealing. It is alleged that while she was pregnant in 2011, she went on an extended “Babymoon” vacation but failed to file paperwork that is required when government employees take paid leave – meaning: she was paid while on vacation as if she were working full-time. Because her leave time was not deducted while she was on vacation, and because government employees are paid for accumulated, unused leave time when they exit government service, Abedin was effectively paid twice for her vacation – cashing in the un-deducted leave in 2013, when she quit the State Department. The result, the IG found, wasan overpayment of over $10,000.
Abedin disputes the IG’s conclusion that the payment was improper, claiming that she did some work while on vacation. The IG referred his findings to the Obama Justice Department, then led by Attorney General Eric Holder. Justice declined to prosecute.
The vacation kerfuffle may be the least of Abedin’s problems.
