Growing Scandal: Undercover FBI Agent Paid Big Bucks Supporting Gillum Fundraiser

Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has a growing scandal on his hands.

Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has a growing scandal on his hands.

The corruption scandal surrounding Florida Democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum continued to grow on Friday as newly-released documents show that an undercover FBI agent, who posed as a developer seeking to do business with Gillum’s Tallahassee government, allegedly paid thousands of dollars to support a fundraiser for Gillum’s political action committee, Forward Florida.

Tallahassee Democrat has the scoop, and it further involves an undercover FBI agent:

Trending: AOC Reveals Plans to Implement Gun & Immigration Changes — WITHOUT Congress

An undercover FBI agent posing as an Atlanta developer seeking to do business with the city of Tallahassee picked up the catering bill for a 2016 fundraiser for Mayor Andrew Gillum’s nascent political action committee, Forward Florida.

The PAC would eventually become the warchest for Gillum’s gubernatorial campaign. It is the first piece of evidence linking the ongoing FBI probe to Gillum’s broader campaign for statewide office.

The emails and receipts released Friday as part of a supplemental records request from the Florida Commission on Ethics shows that the agent, Mike Miller, was invoiced $4,386 by 101 Restaurant and Mint Lounge, a restaurant owned by lobbyist Adam Corey at the time. An email exchange shows that Miller paid the bill and that Gillum sent him a personal thank you note for the food.

Gillum recently stated that police officers are going “too far” if they pull out a gun, baton, or taser in the line of duty.

“All this stuff that they say, I’ve got to let them know, anti-police? No. I’m for police accountability, but law enforcement society cannot work and, quite frankly, law enforcement cannot do its job if it does not have a trusting relationship with the community,” Gillum said.

“At the time that a law enforcement official has to go to a weapon, to a gun, to a baton, to a taser, then they have already have to go too far by their very presence,” he continued. “By the very trust that they inspire in community and in society, they are supposed to be able to bring most situations to heel.”

WATCH:

Gillum’s brother is under investigation for potential voter fraud.

Less than a year before gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum publicly denounced President Donald Trump’s efforts to investigate the threat of voter fraud, Gillum’s brother, Marcus Gillum, voted in the 2016 general election in Tallahassee, Florida while a resident of Chicago, Illinois.

According to Florida law, you must be a legal resident in Florida to vote in elections. Casting an illegal vote in Florida is a third-degree felony.

Andrew Gillum and his brother Marcus are close. Media reports indicate they have traveled together and attended sporting events together. Also, Marcus Gillum has been caught up in the FBI investigation involving possible corruption in Tallahassee, Florida.

Gillum has been linked to a group that teaches kids to glorify a terror group, which has been designated by the State Dept. as a foreign terrorist organization.

From Breitbart:

Dream Defenders, a radical organization closely associated with Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, compiled an education tool for U.S. teachers that glorifies the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a deadly terrorist organization.

The project, which claims to be compatible with common core, pushes “rebellion” and educates students on the PFLP’s goal, which is posted on Dream Defenders stationary and quite literally calls for “the destruction of the Zionist state.”

The PFLP is designated by the U.S. State Department as a foreign terrorist organization. As a secular Palestinian Marxist-Leninist terrorist group, the PFLP is responsible for scores of deadly suicide bombings, shooting attacks and airplane hijackings in which Israelis were murdered in cold blood.

None of these reports look good for Gillum, but how will Floridians respond in November?

Massive Surge of Border Crossings Coming, Says DHS Data

Meanwhile, the nation waits on the prolonged legislative battle over President Trump’s National Emergency Declaration.

While the US government isn’t often accused of being very efficient, the recent Robert Mueller fiasco has thrown a massive wrench into the gears at exactly the wrong time. You see, as Mueller was winding down his long and wide-scoped investigation of the alleged “collusion” between the Donald Trump 2016 campaign and the Russian government, there was a worrisome uptick in illegal crossings at the Mexico-US border, and the Department of Homeland Security believes that this is only the beginning.  The number of immigrants arrested or turned away at the southern border has continued to climb to levels not seen for years, according to new Department of Homeland Security data obtained by Axios. Why it matters: The surge has been driven by an influx of migrant families and unaccompanied children, according to a DHS official. “At the moment, we have the closest thing to an open border that we’ve had,” said Leon Fresco, an immigration attorney and member of a Homeland Security advisory committee formed by DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen several months ago. Detention centers are overcrowded, and immigration officials often aren’t able to deport immigrants as quickly through expedited removal procedures. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection have even begun releasing migrant families into the U.S. almost immediately instead of holding them in detention, Mark Morgan, former chief of Customs and Border Protection under President Obama, told Axios. He said this could create an additional incentive for migrants. In the weeks leading up to the first climax of the Mueller investigation, the President and his team were focused singularly on border security, having declared a National Emergency in order to fund the construction of a border barrier. One can only hope now that the distraction of RussiaGate will give way in time to prevent a humanitarian crisis on the…

Democratic Congresswoman Claims to Have Evidence That Mueller Didn’t

The “resistance” is alive and well in the DC Swamp, and Katie Hill is flying the flag flagrantly.

Katie Hill

The unfortunate truth about the hysteria gripping American politics today is that it being propped up by the establishment at large. We live in a world with layers of information.  There is, of course, firsthand knowledge, and then everything else.  The problem today is that the everything else is hotly divided and spun by the infotainment “news” channels and Silicon Valley’s near-unanimous shunning of the republican party.  This sort of division is the fuel that keeps their viewers coming back to suffer through commercials, all in the name of getting the chemical “fix” that salacious, angry news provides. So, of course, even after explicit statements from the Mueller report have made it to the mainstream, there are several democrats looking to keep the charade alive. Freshman California Democratic Representative Katie Hill had the following to say in the wake of the news: Hill said, “I think everyone needs to kind of slow their roll on this whole thing because right now we have evidence from Mueller, a direct quote from Mueller that there was direct interference by the Russians in the election. We’ve known that for a while. What we’ve seen since Trump took office is that even beforehand he said he was encouraging Russia to release the e-mails, to find those 30,000 e-mails. Now we have to say, ‘OK, fine. He didn’t directly coordinate with Russia moving forward.’” She continued, “But now we have evidence over the last two years that the Mueller investigation was not covering that is highly, highly suspicious. Both on the influence by foreign entities that have directly had part with our foreign policy, but also on so many other things.” This “moving of the goalposts” isn’t justice; it is instead resistance, any must be recognized as such. Earlier in the day, President Trump began to use the word “treasonous” to describe the last…
