EXCLUSIVE: Ghislaine Maxwell paid $25K to fake news purveyor Jacob Wohl to 'smear Epstein victims and to get prosecutor Geoffrey Berman fired in attempt to stall sex trafficking investigation against her'

Ghislaine Maxwell hired Jacob Wohl to smear alleged victims of Jeffrey Epstein and her, a former friend told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview

As part of a $25k deal, Wohl and his lobbyist colleague Jack Burkman also allegedly pushed to get former New York US Attorney Geoffrey Berman fired

Wohl and Burkman are far-right lobbyists who have become a laughing stock in DC after several failed attempts to smear top political figures

Maryland paralegal Kristin Spealman claims she was initially contacted by the duo to use her in a smear campaign against Nancy Pelosi and Ted Cruz

Spealman told DailyMail.com they bragged to her they had been hired in early June for $25,000 to dig up dirt on Maxwell's alleged sex trafficking victims

Federal documents filed this month show a company linked to Maxwell had hired Wohl and Burkman to lobby on ‘issues relating to US DOJ, Senate Judiciary, House Judiciary,’

DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal Berman's removal was intended to stall or stop the criminal investigation into Maxwell, Spealman said Berman was ultimately pushed out by Barr in June, but two weeks later Maxwell was charged as part of Epstein's sex trafficking ring

About Jacob Wohl:

Jacob Alexander Wohl (born December 12, 1997 [1]) is an American far-right conspiracy theorist and fraudster. [2] [3] [4] Wohl and conservative lobbyist and conspiracy theorist Jack Burkman have allegedly been responsible for multiple unsuccessful plots to frame public figures for fictitious sexual assaults. The pair were allegedly behind plots in October 2018 against U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in April 2019 against 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg, and in April 2020 against White House Coronavirus Task Force member Anthony Fauci. [5] [6] [7]

Wohl has created and promulgated other false or unfounded claims and conspiracy theories, mainly against Democratic Party politicians such as Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris, Ilhan Omar, and Elizabeth Warren.

.............
In August 2020, Wohl and Burkman made tens of thousands of robocalls to residents of battleground states, including Michigan, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, and Illinois. [18] [50] [51] The robocall campaign appeared to originate from Burkman's personal cell phone number, and the caller identified themself as part of Wohl and Burkman's organization, Project 1599. [50] [18] The messages disseminated the false claims that information provided by those who use mail-in ballots will be used by police to find criminals, by credit card companies for debt collection purposes, and by the CDC to "track people for mandatory vaccines". [18] [52] Several lawsuits against Wohl and Burkman have alleged that the robocalls were an attempt to suppress votes in the 2020 presidential election, and the Attorneys General of Michigan and New York have alleged that the two men intentionally targeted Black communities with the calls. [18] [52]

On October 1, 2020, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel filed four felony charges each against Wohl and Burkman, including conspiring to intimidate voters in violation of election law. Nessel's investigation into the robocalls found that Wohl and Burkman had attempted to suppress people of color from voting in the 2020 presidential election via a robocall campaign that made 85,000 calls across the country, including 12,000 in Detroit.

................

Wohl became increasingly politically active as Donald Trump launched his campaign for the 2016 presidency. Wohl established a reputation for his vociferous support for Trump on Twitter, and his speed in replying to nearly all of Trump's tweets. [65] [29]
......................
After Wohl made a popular tweet that he had "just left a hipster coffee shop" where he overheard "libs" ( liberals) praising President Donald Trump's interactions with Vladimir Putin at the 2018 Russia–United States summit in Helsinki, other tweets by Wohl were uncovered that repeated the same phrase, alongside claims that he had overheard groups of customers including liberals, Democrats, and Jewish people voicing support for Donald Trump or opposition to his political opponents. [24] These repeated events in similar locations were viewed to be improbable, and the tweets were mocked in an online meme in which people followed the phrase "just left a hipster coffee shop" with unlikely fictional scenarios

He never paid, according to the Arizona Attorney General’s Office.)
...........

In 2015 when Wohl, while still a student at Santiago High School, reinvented himself as a corporate raider he called “The Wohl of Wall Street.” A handicapped Arizona man who watched Wohl on Fox Business News, where he was portraying himself as the 17-year-old principal of a $500,000 asset fund, liked what he saw and gave Wohl $75,000 to invest. A year later the same man called in a tip to the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office that Wohl and a business partner had lost it all. The investor subsequently killed himself. Wohl is awaiting trial on one felony count of unlicensed sale of a security stemming from the case. If convicted, he could be sentenced to three years.

White House metadata? No wonder Jeffrey Clark is pleading the fifth – and it’s all landing in Donald Trump’s lap
Bill Palmer | 11:13 pm EST December 3, 2021 Palmer Report

Over the past few days former Trump DOJ official Jeffrey Clark has gone from seemingly okay with being indicted for contempt of Congress, to suddenly wanting to come in and plead the fifth tomorrow at the last minute, to… suddenly being too ill to come in and testify tomorrow? This all keeps getting stranger, and now a huge piece of the puzzle has just been revealed.

Jeffrey Clark is in legal trouble because he sent a letter to Georgia officials, demanding in bad faith that they overturn the election results, which constitutes election tampering. Tonight MSNBC is reporting that the January 6th Committee has discovered White House metadata on Clark’s letter, which means the letter electronically passed through the Trump White House at some point.

In other words, at least one person in the Trump White House was either involved in the crafting of, or was at least aware of, Clark’s letter before he sent it to Georgia. This implicates the Trump White House person in Clark’s election crimes. And this all comes in the midst of Clark having gone from suddenly wanting to plead the fifth tomorrow, to suddenly not being able to testify tomorrow.

There’s a lot going on here. At this point Clark has to be wondering if he should try to cut a plea deal against the Trump White House official he was coordinating with. But given that Clark could potentially end up criminally charged with some form of election tampering by the Department of Justice and Georgia officials, he’d have to negotiate one heck of a complicated deal.

Right now the Jeffrey Clark situation is confusing and there appear to be more moving parts than we know about. That’s before even getting to Trump lawyer John Eastman’s decision to also plead the fifth to the January 6th Committee. But as these things tend to go, more details and context should emerge this weekend, and we’ll soon likely have a much clearer picture about what’s really going on here.

In the meantime, Clark is already scared enough of criminal prosecution that he was going to plead the fifth tomorrow, and now there’s hard evidence that implicates at least one Trump White House official in Clark’s election crimes. The kicker is that if Clark flips on the unnamed Trump White House official, that person will then have to consider flipping on Donald Trump himself. Somebody is going to prison over this. It’s all steadily leading up to landing in Trump’s lap.

White Supremacists Stage Bizarro Rally in Downtown D.C., Find Themselves Stranded

Blake Montgomery, Zachary Petrizzo
Sat, December 4, 2021



Screenshot/Twitter

[ I see they're wearing masks. It's not "tyranny" if it hides your identity. ]



WASHINGTON, D.C.—A group of white supremacists stormed through downtown Washington, D.C. on Saturday evening, bearing American flags and mildly menacing plastic shields while marching to the beat of a snare drum down the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. But after chanting aggressively about their plans to “reclaim America,” their intended show of force stalled spectacularly when they lost their ride.

While the group had marched through the city with threatening chants about their plan to “reclaim America,” by the end of the night it was not even clear how they intended to reclaim their U-Haul.

The rally by more than 100 members of the “Patriot Front” group, held just blocks from the White House, sparked fear among many bystanders and immediately attracted the attention of law enforcement, who shadowed the group to forestall any conflict.

Members wore a uniform: white gators, sunglasses, blue jackets, khaki pants, and brown boots and hats. Some donned plastic shinguards, seeming to anticipate violence.

As Patriot Front’s leader Thomas Rousseau spoke beside the Capitol reflecting pool, bystanders booed. Asked about the reason for the march, Rousseau said, “Our demonstrations are an exhibition of our unified capability to organize, to show our strength—not as brawlers or public nuisances, but as men capable of illustrating a message and seeking an America that more closely resembles the interests of its true people.”

At the end of the night, the march ended in a logistical anti-climax. No arrests were made at the Arlington Memorial Bridge, where the demonstration wound down, and D.C. police Lt. Jason Bagshaw told The Daily Beast that the cops, some in riot gear, were on the scene simply “waiting for people to leave.”

That is when it became clear that more than two dozen members of the white supremacist group could not leave, as they were apparently stranded. Members of the group had waited in a one-way roundabout to depart in one of the U-Hauls they had used to transport themselves for the rally. But the large rented moving van could not fit them all, so many of them were forced to wait in 45-degree darkness as the bulky orange vehicle made multiple trips over the course of nearly three hours.

As the group finally departed, one police officer yelled, “Whose shield is that?” after one white supremacist apparently left his plastic shield behind.

Patriot Front was once known as Vanguard America but changed its name after a man affiliated with the group murdered a woman at the notorious Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville. Members with military experience often train each other in basic tactics ranging from a protest gear list (Marine Corps-issued combat boots and decontaminate wipes) to hand-to-hand combat. White nationalists like Richard Spencer have hired the group for their own security.

The bully who pulls the levers of Trump's mind never learns

BY DOUGLAS MACKINNON, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR — 12/04/21

Some people never grow out of their inner bully. Some choose not to move on from victimizing behavior. And some are forever defined by insecurities that lead to the need to browbeat those who might outshine them. To be sure, many Americans have come to view former President Trump as such a bully.

Rather than argue a case on its merits or point out the missteps of a person’s actions or opinion, Trump often resorts to schoolyard name-calling. It’s a loathsome tactic by anyone trying to win an argument but particularly repugnant and demeaning coming from one who holds — or did hold — the nation’s highest office.

Trump recently put this knee-jerk reaction on display yet again when he went after three of his favorite targets: The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley. Woodward and Costa wrote about him in their book “ Peril” and reported in that book that Milley called his counterpart in the People’s Republic of China to assure him there was no cause for alarm following the Jan. 6 breach of the Capitol. (Milley has said the calls were “ routine.”)

In a statement attacking the three men, Trump used words including “con man,” “lightweight lapdog assistant,” “craggy smug face” and “treason.”

When we encounter name-calling and bullying by a 7-year-old in the schoolyard, we tend to excuse it as the behavior of an underdeveloped mind. When we experience it from a 75-year-old man who was president of the United States — to paraphrase the late Stephen Sondheim — it’s time to “Send in the Therapists.”

Irresponsibly attempting to attach the word “treason” to a decorated military leader such as Milley brings to mind Trump’s criticisms of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). Of McCain’s loss to former President Obama in 2008, Trump said, “He lost. He let us down. ... I never liked him as much after that. ... I don’t like losers.” When reminded that McCain was a war hero, Trump responded, “He is not a war hero. ... He is a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

For those who may have forgotten, McCain served as an officer in the U.S. Navy. As he was flying his 23rd combat mission over North Vietnam, his A4E Skyhawk was shot down. He broke both arms and a leg and, once captured by the enemy, was beaten and bayoneted and forced into solitary confinement for two years. He refused early release for propaganda purposes unless his fellow American POWs also were released and was held prisoner for another five years. Trump’s indefensible comments remind us that he managed to avoid the Vietnam War and military service altogether.

Why would someone like Trump — who was hanging out in wealthy establishments in Manhattan while McCain was a prisoner of war — dare to besmirch the senator’s service? One possible explanation is that Trump simply can’t help himself. Even knowing he will inflict damage on his reputation or his cause, the bully in him is compelled to strike out. It’s likely one reason that Trump lost Arizona in the 2020 election.

And now Trump continues to shamefully attach the word “treason” to a four-star general. Milley has held multiple command and staff positions in eight divisions and special forces over 40 years and was deployed to — among other combat theaters — Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iraq and Afghanistan (the latter for three tours).

Trump is within his rights to articulate concerns he might have regarding Milley’s policy positions or even to air personal disagreements the two had in private. Some believe that Milley was deeply embarrassed when, in June 2020, during the height of protests against the death of George Floyd, he joined Trump for a much-maligned photo op at Lafayette Square on the way to St. John’s Episcopal Church across the street, which had been targeted for arson by some anarchists. Surely Milley, and others who accompanied Trump, knew then that a serious public relations problem would ensue.

Some suspect that Milley may have talked about Trump in an effort to mend his own reputation and ingratiate himself with the Biden administration and Democratic leadership. If that’s the case, Trump should engage in a point-by-point rebuttal with the general. Our nation doesn’t need any military leader to favor one political party or ideology over the other.

But Trump certainly could have made his case without the name-calling and gutter-sniping. Sadly, the bully who pulls the levers of his mind seems determined to never allow that to happen.

It's one thing to say that Trump is a poorly educated boor, but he does have some kind of staff .... I think. (?) Could it be that they're trolling the boss by letting him make his grammatic errors?

Pro-Trump counties now have far higher COVID death rates. Misinformation is to blame

Updated December 5, 2021



People protest a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for municipal workers on Oct. 28 in New York City. Polling, vaccination and mortality data all suggest that Republicans are the biggest group of unvaccinated Americans and are suffering the worst consequences as a result.

Since May 2021, people living in counties that voted heavily for Donald Trump during the last presidential election have been nearly three times as likely to die from COVID-19 as those who live in areas that went for now-President Biden. That's according to a new analysis by NPR that examines how political polarization and misinformation are driving a significant share of the deaths in the pandemic.

NPR looked at deaths per 100,000 people in roughly 3,000 counties across the U.S. from May 2021, the point at which vaccinations widely became available. People living in counties that went 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.7 times the death rates of those that went for Biden. Counties with an even higher share of the vote for Trump saw higher COVID-19 mortality rates.

In October, the reddest tenth of the country saw death rates that were six times higher than the bluest tenth, according to Charles Gaba, an independent health care analyst who's been tracking partisanship trends during the pandemic and helped to review NPR's methodology. Those numbers have dropped slightly in recent weeks, Gaba says: "It's back down to around 5.5 times higher."

The trend was robust, even when controlling for age, which is the primary demographic risk of COVID-19 mortality. The data also reveal a major contributing factor to the death rate difference: The higher the vote share for Trump, the lower the vaccination rate.

The analysis only looked at the geographic location of COVID-19 deaths. The exact political views of each person taken by the disease remains unknowable. But the strength of the association, combined with polling information about vaccination, strongly suggests that Republicans are being disproportionately affected.

Recent polling data that show Republicans are now the largest group of unvaccinated individuals in the United States, more than any other single demographic group. Polling also shows that mistrust in official sources of information and exposure to misinformation, about both COVID-19 and the vaccines, run high among Republicans.

"An unvaccinated person is three times as likely to lean Republican as they are to lean Democrat," says Liz Hamel, vice president of public opinion and survey research at the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonpartisan health policy think tank that tracks attitudes toward vaccination. Political affiliation is now the strongest indicator of whether someone is vaccinated, she says: "If I wanted to guess if somebody was vaccinated or not and I could only know one thing about them, I would probably ask what their party affiliation is."

It was not always this way. Earlier in the pandemic, many different groups expressed hesitancy toward getting vaccinated. African Americans, younger Americans and rural Americans all had significant portions of their demographic that resisted vaccination. But over time, the vaccination rates in those demographics have risen, while the rate of Republican vaccination against COVID-19 has flatlined at just 59%, according to the latest numbers from Kaiser. By comparison, 91% of Democrats are vaccinated.

Being unvaccinated increases the risk of death from COVID-19 dramatically, according to the CDC. The vast majority of deaths since May, around 150,000, have occurred among the unvaccinated, says Peter Hotez, dean for the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine.

While vaccine hesitancy exists in many different groups, Hotez suspects that the deaths are "overwhelmingly" concentrated in more politically conservative communities. "How does this make sense at any level?" he asks.

Deadly consequencesThe consequences for individuals are real. Mark Valentine still remembers when his brother called him to tell him he had contracted coronavirus. Valentine is a trial consultant in North Carolina. His brother Phil, 61, was a well-known conservative talk show host in Nashville, Tenn., who often expressed skepticism about vaccination.

Neither brother was vaccinated, and neither one was particularly worried about Phil's positive result. His brother said he was trying several alternative therapies commonly promoted in conservative circles. "He said, 'I've got the ivermectin, I started it this morning, and I don't think it's going to be a big deal,' " Mark Valentine recalls. "And frankly I didn't think about it anymore."

But a week later, Mark said he got a call from his brother's wife saying that the two were going to the hospital. "Before I knew it, he was in there and I couldn't get to him, couldn't talk to him," Valentine recalls. "His situation took a nosedive like you can't believe."

Phil Valentine died in August about five weeks after he announced he had tested positive for COVID-19.

Misinformation appears to be a major factor in the lagging vaccination rates. The Kaiser Family Foundation's polling shows Republicans are far more likely to believe false statements about COVID-19 and vaccines. A full 94% of Republicans think one or more false statements about COVID-19 and vaccines might be true, and 46% believe four or more statements might be true. By contrast, only 14% of Democrats believe four or more false statements about the disease.

Belief in multiple false statements highly correlates with vaccination status, Hamel says. "If you believe that the vaccines can damage your fertility, that they contain a microchip and that the government is inflating the number of COVID-19 deaths, you're going to think really differently about whether to get vaccinated."

Disinformation breeds complacencyPerhaps the most pernicious pieces of misinformation have to do with the perceived severity of COVID-19 itself. The most widely believed false statement was: "The government is exaggerating the number of COVID-19 deaths."

Hamel says that underestimating the severity of COVID-19 appears to be a major reason why Republicans in particular have fallen behind in vaccination: "We've seen lower levels of personal worry among Republicans who remain unvaccinated," she says. "That's a real contrast with what we saw in communities of color, where there was a high level of worry about getting sick."

Complacency around the risks of contracting COVID-19 certainly seemed to be a major reason why the Valentine brothers avoided vaccination. While not conspiracy theorists, they were staunch Trump supporters. The arrival of coronavirus just ahead of the presidential election of 2020 seemed like "the most fortuitous pandemic in the history of the world" for the Democratic Party, recalls Mark.

Despite the media coverage, Phil Valentine didn't believe COVID-19 was serious as long as you were healthy: "He said, 'The likelihood of me getting it is low. In the unlikely event that I do get it, the likelihood that I will survive it is 99-plus %,' " Mark Valentine recalls.

Vaccine researcher Peter Hotez is deeply troubled by the current state of affairs. A winter surge in COVID-19 cases is brewing, and the newly discovered omicron variant has the potential to make things far worse.

Before his illness, Phil Valentine had sometimes promoted unproven alternative therapies and taken a mocking tone toward vaccination. As his situation deteriorated, Mark says the talk show host realized he needed to encourage his listeners to get vaccinated. Phil told his brother, "'My fear is that because I didn't get it, other folks may not get it," Mark Valentine recalls. The family put out a statement in support of vaccination, and Mark went on to his brother's talk show to encourage listeners to take the shot.He thinks the elements of the Republican Party that are endorsing anti-vaccine ideas need to take a big step back. "I'm not trying to change Republican thinking or far-right thinking," he says. "I'm trying to say: 'The anti-science doesn't belong; it doesn't fit. ... Just stop it and save lives.' '

He also headed to his local Walmart to get vaccinated. "The guy comes out; he said, 'Do you have any questions or concerns?' " Mark Valentine recalls. "I said, 'Hell yeah, I've got both, but do it anyway.' "

A Trump-loving former KKK leader who was jailed for beating a Black man is running for office as a Republican in Georgia, report says

Chester Doles is running as a Republican for a spot on the Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners.

He spent decades involved with the Ku Klux Klan, including a spell as Maryland's Grand Klaliff.

Doles was jailed in 1993 after being convicted of beating a Black man in Maryland.

Chester Doles, a former leader of the Ku Klux Klan and the neo-Nazi National Alliance, is running for office as a Republican in Georgia, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Doles, who spent decades in the KKK, including as Maryland's Grand Klaliff, filed paperwork earlier this year to run for a spot on the Lumpkin County Board of Commissioners in 2022, the paper reported.

The 61-year-old running for a local county commission office in a deeply conservative district has a chequered past. Doles has been to prison twice, per The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

He served four years in prison in 1993 after being convicted on federal charges related to the beating of a Black man in Maryland. In 2003, he was arrested on federal firearms charges and spent four more years in prison.

In December 2016, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that Doles was arrested on assault charges.

The paper said that Doles also had been linked to the Hammerskins — a white-supremacist "skinhead" group.

He marched with the group in the 2017 Unite the Right rally, the deadly white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville, Virginia, according to The Washington Post.

In 2019, Doles described himself as a "fourth-generation Klansman." He told 11 Alive that he now denounces racism and blames his past actions on "youthful indiscretions."

He said that his politics is now "in line with all Republicans" and added that he's a supporter of Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution describes Doles as an "ardent supporter" of former President Donald Trump.

In December 2020, he was pictured in a selfie with Sen. Kelly Loeffler. She said she didn't know who he was.
