OUTRAGEOUS: Corrupt Chuck Schumer Asks DOJ to Investigate Richard Grenell for Bogus FARA Violations
Corrupt and Crying Democrat Chuck Schumer from New York in January 2017 said that the Deep State Intel Community has six ways from Sunday and getting back at you if you take them on. Corrupt Chuck never said that he was one of the six.
In January 2017 Crying Chuck was on MSNBC and stated one of the most shockingly honest and corrupt statement in modern American history:
Let me tell you, you take on the Intelligence Community, they’ve got six ways from Sunday of getting back at ya. So, even for a practical and supposedly hard nosed business man he’s [Donald Trump] being really dumb to do this.
From what I am told they [Obama’s corrupt Intel Community of Brennan, Clapper, Comey, etc.] are very upset about how he has treated them and talked about them [at the time they were months into a criminal and corrupt fraudulent coup of the President].
How disgusting. This is where President Obama left us. A totally corrupt party and a totally corrupt media. And, a totally corrupt Deep State Intel Community full of biased and hateful anti-American crooks.
What Crying Chuck didn’t tell us is that he was one of the ‘six ways from Sunday’ operatives!
Earlier this week, Schumer sent a letter to the DOJ asking them to look into President Trump’s selection for temporary head of the DNI, Richard Grennell, for bogus charges of violating the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA):

The President selected Grenell to step in and clean up the corrupt Intel community. This had to be stopped, so the corrupt Democrats have to bring in their new trick, FARA violations.

The FARA is an obscure law which until recently was rarely, if ever enforced:
FARA, which was originally enacted in 1938 to combat Nazi propaganda, is a disclosure statute that requires persons acting as agents of foreign principals in a political or quasi-political capacity to make periodic public disclosure of their relationship with the foreign principal, as well as activities, receipts and disbursements in support of those activities. Failure to register with the DOJ can result in criminal penalties — fines up to $10,000 and up to five years’ imprisonment — or civil enforcement enjoining a party from acting as an agent of a foreign principle.
Despite the seriousness of FARA’s penalties, it has long been an afterthought because of federal prosecutors’ hesitancy in bringing FARA prosecutions. DOJ brought only seven criminal FARA cases between 1966 and 2015 (securing FARA convictions in just three cases) and had not employed FARA’s civil injunctive relief since 1991. In the last three years, however, there has been a significant uptick in the number of FARA prosecutions. The influx of FARA prosecutions is consistent with the DOJ’s recent public avowals to prioritize FARA enforcement. Congress has also given extra attention to FARA, as over a dozen bills related to FARA were introduced in the last session, most of which seek to eliminate statutory exemptions and give additional powers and resources for investigating potential violations and increased enforcement.
After only seven criminal cases between 1966 and 2015, the Deep State Mueller gang used the FARA against Paul Manafort and General Michael Flynn. Now they are using this obscure law intended to stop Nazi propaganda as a Deep State tool to take down another innocent American, Richard Grenell.
