FBI Probing Fake Documents Distributed To Damage Clinton Campaign

Share
Clinton, Comey,

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The FBI and U.S. intelligence agencies are examining faked documents aimed at discrediting the Hillary Clinton campaign as part of a broader investigation into what U.S. officials believe has been an attempt by Russia to disrupt the presidential election, people with knowledge of the matter said.

U.S. Senator Tom Carper, a Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security Committee, has referred one of the documents to the FBI for investigation on the grounds that his name and stationery were forged to appear authentic, some of the sources who had knowledge of that discussion said.

In the letter identified as fake, Carper is quoted as writing to Clinton, “We will not let you lose this election,” a person who saw the document told Reuters.

The fake Carper letter, which was described to Reuters, is one of several documents presented to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Department of Justice for review in recent weeks, the sources said.

A spokeswoman for Carper declined to comment.

As part of an investigation into suspected Russian hacking, FBI investigators have also asked Democratic Party officials to provide copies of other suspected faked documents that have been circulating along with emails and other legitimate documents taken in the hack, people involved in those conversations said.

A spokesman for the FBI confirmed the agency was “in receipt of a complaint about an alleged fake letter” related to the election but declined further comment. Others with knowledge of the matter said the FBI was also examining other fake documents that recently surfaced.

U.S. intelligence officials have warned privately that a campaign they believe is backed by the Russian government to undermine the credibility of the U.S. presidential election could move beyond the hacking of Democratic Party email systems. That could include posting fictional evidence of voter fraud or other disinformation in the run-up to voting on Nov. 8, U.S. officials have said.

Russian officials deny any such effort.

In addition to the Carper letter, the FBI has also reviewed a seven-page electronic document that carries the logos of Democratic pollster Joel Benenson’s firm, the Benenson Strategy Group, and the Clinton Foundation, a person with knowledge of the matter said.

The document, identified as a fake by the Clinton campaign, claims poll ratings had plunged for Clinton and called for “severe strategy changes for November” that could include “staged civil unrest” and “radiological attack” with dirty bombs to disrupt the vote.

Like the Carper letter, it was not immediately clear where the fraudulent document had originated or how it had begun to circulate.

On Oct. 20, Roger Stone, a former Trump aide and Republican operative, linked to a copy of the document on Twitter with the tag, “If this is real: OMG!!”

Benenson’s firm had no immediate comment. Craig Minassian, a spokesman for the Clinton Foundation, said the document was “fake.” He said he did not know if the FBI had examined it.

Stone did not respond to emails requesting comment.

A spokesman for the Clinton campaign, Glen Caplin, said the document was a fake and part of a “desperate stunt” to capitalize on the leak of Democratic emails by Wikileaks.

The developments highlight the unusually prominent role U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies have played in a contentious election and an ongoing debate about how public they can or should be about their inquiries.

FBI Director James Comey, a Republican appointed by President Obama, touched off an outcry from Democrats last week when he alerted Congress that agents had found other emails that could be linked to an inquiry into Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State, effectively re-opening an investigation he had closed in July.

My last paycheck after working with them for 3 months was 13000 bucks… Best thing about it was that only thing needed is basic typing skills and access to internet… http://korta.nu/MDe

      No, the reason Comey sent letters to members of congress was because of pressure from around 100 agents that threatened to quit because he didn’t file charges on her. I say let them quit. A lot of people out there looking for jobs. A lot of them qualified for their jobs.

      So true Granny, but think of the end game here ok? If we can destroy the credibility of one of the pillars of the Constitution (rule of law), then we are moving so close to destroying what makes us (US) Great. No rule of law then all of drumpf’s troubles simply go away win or lose. This is nothing more than an accelerated plan of what the Koch Bro’s have been doing city by city, county by county, state by state. Fred Koch was one of the founding father’s of the John Birch Society. Many of their beliefs parallel repuglicans. Show me where and when the repuglicians have done anything to help anyone other than themselves in the past 30 years. They can not govern, get along with anyone else either here or abroad, turn on their own in a heartbeat. Truly a basket of deplorables.

    The FBI cannot and could not move forward with an effective and though investigation because Loretta Lynch thwarted their efforts.
    Honest FBI agents were outraged that they were not able to do their job. The FBI is not political. An acting Department of Justice meeting with an actor in an investigation, they tried to do this secretly, they banned all journalists and cameras, but someone was able to see and take iPhone pictures. Our country has been corrupted starting at the top. This is why Trump has such appeal. People are just sick and tired of hidden agendas and no transparency.
    Hillary did this to herself.

      Non-transparency Trump is not a better choice. The republicans have been altering documents since the Benghazi investigations, trying to pin anything on Hillary. Gowdy altered a classified document, and “Clinton Cash” is full of innuendos, and the agents that are involved are Trump supporters, trying to find facts in a book that is fiction.

        So, moron, yeah there are plenty of things that thinking people can critique Hillary Clinton for. Unlike sick Cons we are not blind followers. But I understand why you ignorant Cons have trouble seeing that since it so contrary to the make-up of a sick Con. But the critiques of Hillary Clinton we have are real substantive issues, not made up right garbage that is sold to morons who couldn’t find their own hometown on a world map. And the problem is not just the laughable & ridiculous right wing nut job conspiracy theories, it’s also that your frigging solution is Trump? Seriously, your solution to a politician who has taken lots of money from donors, like EVERY OTHER POLITICIAN, right or wrong, and your solution is elect someone who is the most ignorant, damaged, narcissistic, sociopath ever? Really? It’s “hey Hillary took money, so let’s take our chances with a moron who might start nuclear war and the annihilation of the human race.” Only ignorant sick Cons could be so frigging stupid!

            Let’s run down your list – which is highly inaccurate and your ignorance is clearly showing.
            – Govt assistance – do you realize that 27% of those on govt. assistance are our own military? 57% are medically or mentally challenged. Less than 7% don’t actually deserve the assistance they receive. So by all means let’s cut govt. assistance to all our military families and handicapped so we can get that 7% off welfare. Oy vey you’re a moron.
            – Vagina welding fascists – so a narcisist 3rd leg swinging a$$hat that rapes women is acceptable to you?
            – Illegal aliens – if you’re not a 100% native indian – shut up.
            – Intelligent educated individuals understand the principles of economics and that Repubs trickle down is a big trickle don’t. See Bush/Cheney Admin and the recession that stupid unfounded theory put us in.
            – President Obama nor future Madam President Clinton has never stated – “we want to collect all guns”. They support common sense gun laws and so do most Americans. The NRA thugs continue to spew forth lies about collection and yet NONE of that has happened nor will. Get a grip. I can’t buy a grenade but I can buy a AR that will kill more than a grenade with a single clip – how on earth does that make any kind of sense? It doesn’t. I’m a concealed weapons permit owner and have quite a collection myself but not AR’s – they are dangerous and shouldn’t be sold to the general public at large and especially without a background checks.
            – Trump has said and done horrible things all of his life. We only need to go back 10 minutes to see this – not just 10 years.
            – Democracy not socialism or communism – there’s a difference look it up – google it since you obviously missed this in high school – assuming you at least have a high school diploma.
            – Climate control is not a hoax – if you stepped out of your Mom’s basement you might figure this out on your own but its doubtful. Big Oil continues to perpetuate lies about this too.
            – Medical marijuana should be legal but Big Pharma can’t put a patent on a plant so they have perpetuated all the lies about how bad it is. It’s not a gate-way drug but cigarettes have been proved to be and yet they are still made and sold.
            – You state every group voting for Clinton is self serving but yet you appear to be supporting the biggest self serving jerk we’ve seen in our life time. He manhandles women, he hasn’t paid taxes in decades, he’s left hundreds of people unpaid for work he’s capitalized on – latest was a former campaign manager that he owes over $700k to – and he’s in bed with Russia and its autocrat leader Putin. Oh Agent Orange’s own economic plan has been reviewed by several economic strategists left and right and would give himself and those at the top more reductions and up our federal deficit.

            So please tell us all who exactly is self serving now??

            Okay, fair is fair. Let’s run down yours

            Clearly numbers can be manipulated in anyones favor. 57% more African-Americans are on welfare than before Obama. Manipulation? Perhaps, but so are yours

            Vaginas… rape stories as valid as the stories of HC on a plane with young ladies en route as sex slaves

            Trickle down economics work better than Socialism…see Venezuela

            How about sticking to the myriad of gun laws already in place and intensify jail time for criminals who use them during a crime. Or are you afraid the African-American populace will be unduly persecuted?

            Horrible things….HC was a nun when she laughed about her defense of an obviously guilty rapist of a 12 year old girl? Threatening accusers of her husbands, ahem, indiscretions? We don’t have enough room here for me to continue….

            Democracy nor socialism….today’s democracy is nothing short of socialism/communism as seen by the Democratic party who’s sole intention is to pander for votes. Very thinly veiled as democracy.

            Climate change is nothing more than todays Y2K except longer lasting with no end and a great profit center for insiders on the left.

            I’m of the belief that all Marijuana should be legalized and could be persuaded to agree with your assessment that Big Pharma and their lobbyists could be the culprit and if you don’t believe HC is in bed with them then put the pipe down.

            Tell me why a man like Trump with all the ability in the world to live a stress free existence for the rest of his life would want this job other than his seeing the injustice being perpetrated upon the American people by both sides of the isle

            I”M WITH HIM-VOTE TRUMP AND THROW OUT ALL THE INCUMBENTS ON THE BALLOT and GOD BLESS AMERICA

The only reason Trump is running for President is because his business in failing and he needs the presidency to make his dream come true of having his name splattered all over the world, with no consequences.

            I’ll continue with facts and agree they can be manipulated one way or another –

            BTW – it’s very clear to me you are a racist based on your multiple anti-black responses but I’ll continue –

            Let’s talk about welfare again and those on it…
            Of our entire population – those on welfare according to US Dept of Ag:
            35% of our total population receives some sort or welfare.

            340,000+ receiving welfare are vets
            900,00+ receiving food stamps are vets

            40.2% White, 25.7% Black, 10.3 Hispanic

            Pre-Obama in 2007 – 38.8% White and 39.8% Black so the numbers do not support your claim of more blacks being on welfare before President Obama took office. In fact they are down.

            Let’s look at Kentucky as an example to further point out how ridiculous your statement is. No offense to any Kentucky residents.
            Out of 4.4 million residents, with 81% white and 8.3% black – 21% of their pop is on welfare in a mostly white state.

            Re: Vagina’s – too many men, including Trump, get away with rape on a regular basis because most women are too afraid to come forward and be berated by individuals like yourself. Trump has a very long, lengthy recorded history of his vile behavior. A lot has been suppressed by litigation and his sue happy mentality.

            Re: Venezuela – you can’t be serious to bring this country up. Trickle down does not work period. Trump and those elite idiots like him put in gold toilets instead of paying their debts and taxes. They don’t hire – they fire. Trickle down is what put us in the biggest recession in over 50 years.

            Re: Guns – so you’re ok with selling a gun without a background check to anyone that wants one? I agree we need criminal justice reform too and the privatization of our jails is one of the biggest jokes in law enforcement.

            Re: Climate change – on record we’ve had the warmest air and water temps and the ice is melting at record rates. All facts. We need to use less oil and more solar and renewable energy if we want to continue to occupy this planet without dire consequences.

            As to why Agent Orange is running – Trump is an egotistical narcissist that craves power and being President would be the ultimate notch in his belt so he can continue his tax dodging, womanizing, deplorable behavior uncontested by anyone.

            Peace out!

            That’s right, Jim. Let that racism of yours leak out like the FBI leaks. Those sentiments of yours were always near the surface but you’ve cracked and can’t contain your true self. That’s what adoration of Trump and the GOP will do to every weak-minded soul like yourself.
            Now, why don’t you let the other shoe fall ,and give us the Sieg Heil. No need to pussy-foot about your inner feelings. Be a man for once in your life and profess your allegiance to whatever racist group you subscribe to. David Duke proudly announces his allegiance—Why can’t you follow his example??

            Whoa Aaron, we have never had a problem before. Don’t be the typical black man that sides with another black man just because he’s black. My argument with Helpy the Septic Filler is for one reason and one reason only. The fact that he can never add anything to a conversation except crying racism in every rebuttal post with absolutely no reference to race in mine. So please don’t chastise me for calling things the way they are with another poster lest I lose the respect for you that I have acquired over the past few months.

            We have a problem primarily because you insist on identifying yourself foremost as a white male, and only secondarily as a human. What do you mean by “typical black male”? That presumptuous designation confirms the stereotype that is firmly entrenched in your head. For that reason, you, and you alone, have chosen to erect a barrier between yourself and me.
            Your knowledge of black people and me is predicated on a firmly embedded notion of the inequality of the races—an ideology formalized by members of the human race who migrated into Europe after having left their original homeland as Modern Humans in Africa. So, ipso facto, you are a product whose ancestors originated in Africa, yet you’ve evolved the notion that you and I are separate. I’ve been careful to show you a different perspective for months now, but you insist on a faulty set of misinformation.

            Let me try again to help clear the mist from your mind.
            Knowledge is of two kinds: Divine and Satanic, as described by Baha’u’llah in the Kitib-i-Iqan on pages 69-70.

            The former wells up “from the fountain of divine inspiration; while the other is but a reflection of vain and obscure thoughts.”
            “The source of the former is God Himself; the motive-force of the latter the whisperings of selfish desire. The one is guided by the principle: ‘Fear ye God; God will teach you;’ the other is but a confirmation of the truth: ‘Knowledge is the most grievous veil between man and his Creator…’ “.

            Jim, if you would compare your comments and those of Trump, the GOP, and many others, you will note that you all base your comments on man-made ideologies and knowledge borrowed stealthily from others to buttress your position; I try to provide something more inclusive and uplifting, making an effort to quote directly from the Writings for context. The GOP message, the Constitution, information obtained illegally about someone’s emails do not make for an objective bases, and have no connection with Divine Knowledge and the inspirations derived therefrom. Such disclosures by the FBI, the false and numerous assertions by Trump are byproducts of a satanic mind that is informed by Satanic Knowledge. Any true Christian, Jew, Muslim, or otherwise would have to acknowledge the veracity and Wisdom welling forth from Baha’u’llah’s Words, some of which I’ve included above for your consideration.
            Don’t hesitate to contact me, but don’t bring a “typical black” mindset with you, or I’ll have to remind you again of your error in thinking about black people as “typical”.

            I hope this is clear enough for you. As for AgLander, “itsfun, etc., this is probably like the Theory of Relativity at this stage in their development.

            I must remember the way many of those on the left take things. I did not take into account some of the overly sensitive folks who can’t read into some of the things I’ve written. When I wrote that I had in mind the tendencies that all ethnicity too often agree with their own in any given situation. I grew up in a Jewish neighborhood for example and noticed early on that there was a “clannish” attitude that permeated the way of life. Later I associated with Italians, Greeks and Latinos that all exhibited the same behavior. Is it stereotypical thinking to be aware of some behavioral traits of human nature?

    The problem for Clinton is the cabal of FBI agents in the section of the New York District who hate her so much they will believe anything from anyone. These malcontents need to exposed and be investigated and if found guilty of not following their directives and laws then they need to be tried or released from duty with no way of either retiring with government benefits of transferring to another government job. Actions have consequences. If they had any integrity at all, even an ounce, they would have already quit stating they could no longer uphold the oath they took as agents.

        They are extreme partisans. The FBI has always been headed by Republicans and long been recognized as harboring very far right conservatives among its staff — and it has a long history of interfering in our democracy. Especially so in the era of extremely right-wing J. Edgar Hoover.

        Their abuses of power during the Viet Nam era are notorious and brought demands for reforms.

        (Plus, many people now at the top levels of management, as well as retired members who are still influential with current members, and have political connections to Republican operatives like Guiliani, are baby boomers who still seethe against members of their generation who did not support that war — people like Hillary Clinton.)

        Under Comey’s weak management, the reforms meant to prevent Viet Nam era abuses seem to be falling by the wayside — some, at least, current and former members of the agency are apparently back to their old anti-democracy ways.
