Missing Ex-FBI Agent Robert Levinson Declared Dead By Family

The family of Robert Levinson, a former FBI agent-turned-private-contractor who disappeared in Iran more than a decade ago while purportedly on a mission for the CIA, announced Wednesday that they believe he is dead.

In a statement given to CNN, Levinson's family said it received information from "US officials" that has "led them a

nd us to conclude that our wonderful husband and father died while in Iranian custody."



Though they don't know when or how it happened, the family claimed that Levinson had passed before the COVID-19 pandemic started.




"We recently received information from U.S. officials that has led both them and us to conclude that our wonderful husband and father died while in Iranian custody. We don't know when or how he died, only that it was prior to the COVID-19 pandemic," they said in a statement.



"It is impossible to describe our pain," the family said. "Our family will spend the rest of our lives without the most amazing man we have ever known, a new reality that is inconceivable to us. His grandchildren will never meet him. They will only know him through the stories we tell them."



"Those who are responsible for what happened to Bob Levinson, including those in the U.S. government who for many years repeatedly left him behind, will ultimately receive justice for what they have done. We will spend the rest of our lives making sure of this, and the Iranian regime must know we will not be going away. We expect American officials, as well as officials around the world, to continue to press Iran to seek Bob's return, and to ensure those Iranian officials involved are held accountable," they said.




In their statement, the family thanked President Trump and several members of his administration, including National Security Advisor Robert C. O'Brien, Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, CIA Director Gina Haspel, and FBI Director Christopher Wray, as well as their staff - who have done "all they could to make our family whole again."




"Our family also wishes to thank Congressman Ted Deutch, Senator Bill Nelson, Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Bob Menendez, and their staff members, who fought for Bob Levinson in every possible way," they added.



"Bob Levinson was a truly remarkable individual - the best husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend anyone could ever ask for. He was an American hero - a true patriot, and his compassion and kindness knew no bounds," the family said. "We will miss his warmth, humor, and wisdom, but most of all, we will miss the deep and unconditional love he had for each one of us. He will never be forgotten - we will make sure of it."




The statement is signed by "Christine, Susan, Stephanie, Sarah, Daniel, David, Samantha, and Douglas, and the entire extended Levinson family."



During Trump's Wednesday night press conference, President Trump refused to accept that Levinson is dead, but added that "it's not looking good."




Levinson disappeared in March while traveling to Kish Island, in Iran. It's widely believed he was kidnapped by Iranian intelligence to be used as a bargaining chip in negotiations, though the Iranian regime never publicly accepted responsibility.

Mexican National Charged As 'Russian Agent' After Spying On FBI Informant In Florida

The Justice Department has announced the capture of an alleged Russian agent in Florida, after the man was seen photographing a US government informant's car in Miami



The alleged Russian spy is a Mexican citizen named Hector Alejandro Cabrera Fuentes, and was charged Tuesday with being an “unregistered foreign agent” for Russia

> after he was stopped attempting to fly out of Miami International Airport.



Though specific details from court documents remain murky, it appears Cabrera was caught in the middle of a counterintelligence op which targeted the FBI's own program to root out Russian spying on American soil.


Image source: Bloomberg/Getty

According to details obtained by the Miami Herald: 




The affidavit says Cabrera visited the complex to spy on a resident at the “direction” of an agent with the Russian Intelligence Service, which operates under President Vladimir Putin. It turned out that the resident was an informant for the FBI’s counterintelligence division who provides information on Russian spying activities in South Florida. Before he was asked to leave the complex, Cabrera’s wife took a photo of the federal informant’s car and license plate.




Apparently the man has confessed to being in contact with Russian intelligence.



The report continues: 




Cabrera, who was visiting Miami on a business and tourism visa, told FBI agents during questioning Monday that he had met with the Russian intelligence agent in Russia several times over the past year and that he instructed him to rent a unit at the condo complex in Miami to do surveillance on the FBI informant. His cellphone showed that there had been interaction between Cabrera and his Russian handler, according to the affidavit.




His latest visit to Moscow where he met with his intelligence handler was earlier this month, according to reports, and was done under the guise of visiting his Russian wife's home country. 



Cabrera apparently has two wives — one from Mexico and a second from Russia, and has most recently lived in Singapore as an occupational researcher.



He was expected to meet with his Russian intelligence handler to pass along the information gathered in south Florida either in April or May. 



It was reportedly a security guard for the US informant that first observed Cabrera and his wife staking out the FBI source's car.

Fired Anti-Trump Agent Strzok Claims FBI, DOJ Violated His Free Speech, Privacy Rights

Fired Anti-Trump Agent Strzok Claims FBI, DOJ Violated His Free Speech, Privacy Rights

Authored by Sara Carter via SaraACarter.com,



Fired FBI agent Peter Strzok – who played a central role into the now debunked investigation into President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia – is now arguing that his politically charged anti-Trump text messages are protected under the First Amendment.



Read More
/p>

This argument is so weak, considering his texts were mainly made on the bureau’s government issued phones, which require FBI agents to use them for  work purposes only.



Strzok, who once was deputy head of the FBI’s counterintelligence office, is suing the Department of Justice for reinstatement into the FBI. He stressed in a new court filing Monday, with the federal district court that “firing an employee for the content of his or her non-public communications is unconstitutional, irrespective of any balancing interests,” which would include damage to the FBI’s reputation and other mitigating factors.



In his claim against the DOJ he argues that he didn’t leak his texts, instead it was the DOJ,  therefore he argues, his texts should be considered private speech. He then argues that he shouldn’t be held to a higher legal standard, using the 1968 Supreme Court case Pickering v. Board of Education. The Pickering case applied to public statements by government employees.



Strzok said he was entitled to “develop a full factual record through discovery.” He said it would be premature to dismiss the case at this early stage.



Strzok’s filing was a response to the DOJ’s motion to dismiss his lawsuit to be reinstated to the FBI by November. The Justice Department slammed Strzok in its motion to dismiss Strzok’s case stating that the embattled former FBI agent admitted to conducting official FBI business on his personal iMessage account and violated FBI regulations in use of his work issued cell phone.



For example, the DOJ included a letter from the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) regarding its own investigation of Strzok that stated in part that “the investigation uncovered numerous occasions on which you used your personal email account to conduct FBI business…you claimed your ‘usual practice’ was to double delete the work emails after you sent them. You acknowledged you had been issued an FBI laptop to work from home but claimed you did not know how to properly log on to use the machine.”



Unbelievable that Strzok gave these excuses to OPR, considering he was the top of the bureau’s counterintelligence division.



First of all, Strzok played a central role both in the investigation into the Trump campaign and Hillary Clinton’s use of an unsecured server to send classified emails. His text messages were sent on his government issued phone, which is not his private phone but owned by the government.  Those text messages revealed exactly how biased the FBI agents conducting the investigation felt about their subject: President Trump.



In fact, when his anti-Trump texts were first discovered by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Strzok was removed in the summer of 2017, from then-Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation. Mueller’s team felt his texts were biased enough to remove Strzok from the investigation and they were right to do so.



Remember these texts messages sent Strzok’s sent on his FBI issued unsecured cell phone to his then lover FBI Attorney Lisa Page.



Strzok called Trump “abysmal” “idiot” and a “disaster” in texts he sent to Page.



At the time, she was working for then FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe was also fired from the FBI after the DOJ’s Inspector General caught him in a multitude of lies and leaking to the media.



In August 2016, after Page wrote to Strzok that Trump was “not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”



Strzok then responded with “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.” Page, who was recently interviewed by Rachael Maddow, couldn’t make a logical explanation for the “We’ll stop it” part of the text and wanted to give the impression that Strzok (let me reiterate: he was central to the investigation into Trump) was making the statement in general terms and that the electorate wouldn’t vote for him. Right!



I really do believe Strzok and Page think Americans are plain dumb and can’t see the forest through the trees.



Further, Strzok was also one of two FBI special agents to interview former National Security Advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who is now awaiting sentencing on Jan. 28. Remember what former FBI Director James Comey said about sending Strzok and FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka to conduct the surprise interview of Flynn at the White House in Jan. 24, 2017.



Comey had told NBC’s Nicole Wallace that he sent the two FBI agents because he believed he could get away with it.




“I sent them,” said Comey to Wallace. “Something we’ve — I probably wouldn’t have done or maybe gotten away with in a more organized investigation — a more organized administration. In the George W. Bush administration, for example, or the Obama administration.”




Strzok, Comey, Page and McCabe, among others involved in the investigation continue to act as if the world owes them something and they play out this crazy narrative in public appearances that stray far from the reality of the evidence that has been compiled against them.



These former senior federal law enforcement officials have been caught lying, leaking to the media, weaponizing the tools of their agency all in an attempt to stop then candidate Trump from becoming president and then to create a false narrative once he did become President.



They are doubling down on all their malfeasance and attempting to find any loop hole or explanation that they can muster to try to change the reality that we all know to be true.



Can you imagine doing this much damage to your company or being this callous with an investigation that effected the lives of the American people and then after being caught acting like you did nothing wrong? Worse, Strzok and the rest of his former FBI cohorts want to play the victim role. It’s actually really disgusting.



Think about this, if the FBI came to your house to question you on anything and you lied, manipulated data, leaked information, tried to explain the unexplainable despite the facts the FBI had against you what do you think would happen?



I can tell you what would happen, the FBI agents would walk you out of the house in handcuffs.



Strzok wasn’t fired because someone accidentally exposed text messages that had nothing to do with his performance on the job, he was fired because he lied and had extraordinary bias against a sitting president he despised. He lied to everyone, including his wife, who by chance discovered his affair with Page after seeing text messages on his phone.



Strzok doesn’t care about anyone but himself. He doesn’t care about the harm he’s done to the FBI and from his lawsuit he doesn’t seem to care about what he’s done to the American people.



It doesn’t seem to matter. He’s doubling down. What he doesn’t realize is that the American people are tired of it and frankly tired of him.

Epstein Was A Mossad Agent Used To Blackmail American Politicians, Former Israeli Spy Claims

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,



Jeffrey Epstein was a Mossad asset who was used by Israeli intelligence to blackmail American politicians, according to a former Israeli spy.





Ari Ben-Menashe, a former Israeli spy and alleged “handler” of Robert Maxwell, told th

Read More
e authors of a new book, Epstein: Dead Men Tell No Tales, that Epstein ran a “complex intelligence operation” at the behest of Mossad.



Believing that Epstein planned to marry his daughter, Maxwell introduced him and Ghislaine Maxwell to Ben-Menashe’s Mossad circle.




“Maxwell sort of started liking him, and my theory is that Maxwell felt that this guy is going for his daughter,” Ben-Menashe said.



“He felt that he could bless him with some work and help him out in like a paternal [way].”




Israeli intelligence bosses gave the green light and Epstein then became a Mossad asset.




“They were agents of the Israeli Intelligence Services,” said Ben-Menashe.




When it became clear that Epstein wasn’t very competent at doing much else, his primary role became “blackmailing American and other political figures.”




“Mr. Epstein was the simple idiot who was going around providing girls to all kinds of politicians in the United States,” said Ben-Menashe.



“See, fucking around is not a crime. It could be embarrassing, but it’s not a crime. But fucking a fourteen-year-old girl is a crime. And he was taking photos of politicians fucking fourteen-year-old girls — if you want to get it straight. They would just blackmail people, they would just blackmail people like that.”




There’s also a Mossad connection to a different kind of sex offender; Harvey Weinstein.



Weinstein reportedly hired ex-Mossad agents to suppress allegations against him. Working for an Israeli firm called Black Cube, these agents pressured witnesses and tried to intimidate journalist Ronan Farrow in order to “bury the truth” about Weinstein’s activity.

Russian 'Agent' Maria Butina Freed From Prison, Leaves US For Moscow

Russian 'Agent' Maria Butina Freed From Prison, Leaves US For Moscow

Convicted Russian agent Maria Butina was released from a Florida prison on Friday and embarked on a 13-hour plane ride back to Russia. Butina served an 18-month sentence for conspiring to act as an unregistered agent for the Kremlin to influence US conservative gun-rights group, reported Reuters.



Butina, 31, was released early Friday from prison in Tallahassee, Florida, due to

good behavior and a change in federal law. Her original release was expected in early November, Butina's attorney, Robert Driscoll, told Reuters.



Upon her release from jail, she was immediately detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) authorities and taken to Miami International Airport for a 6 pm est. flight to Moscow. 




Federal prosecutors last year alleged Butina was a Russian agent who infiltrated the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the National Prayer Breakfast to gather intel for Russia.





The Siberia native admitted to colluding with Russian security officers and several Americans to align Washington's policy toward Moscow.



Court filings show Butina had connections with Russia's Federal Security Services. US investigators obtained detailed conversations between her and Russian intelligence officials.





Butina's case was one of the latest examples of anti-Russian hysteria. American media identified her as a Russian spy in 2018 and accused her of trading sex for political favors.





Russian President Vladimir Putin rejected the idea she was a spy. He said last April, "it's not clear what she was convicted of or what crime she committed."




"It's not clear what she was convicted of or what crime she committed," Putin said. "I think it's a prime example of 'saving face.' They arrested her and put the girl in jail. But there was nothing on her, so in order not to look totally stupid they gave her, fixed her up, with an 18-month sentence to show that she was guilty of something."




Journalist Martin Summers told RT News that Butina was "collateral damage" in the escalating anti-Russian hysteria campaign by American media. 




"Because they've got her caught up in this, they've got to think of something she's supposedly done. And she hasn't done anything that could be classed as spying. We've now got to a ridiculous situation when any Russian person who comments on Western politics is accused of being some sort of agent for their own security services," Summers said.





RT spoke with Butina's father who said the 18-month sentence has put Maria through a lot of psychological distress. The first thing she needs to do when she arrives home is rest and recover. 




"Every single day of imprisonment for any person would have been a very severe psychological trauma," he said.



"Masha is a strong person; she never lost her fortitude even though she was held in solitary confinement for months. Nevertheless, there are problems, for sure."





Before Butina was convicted last year, she told the court she was "truly sorry" for what she did and said she should've registered as a foreign agent.
