Feds arrest 57 white supremacist gang members on drug trafficking charges

Published

on

Federal authorities in North Texas have 57 suspected white supremacist gang members in their custody in a drug trafficking sting — and claim four people associated with the gangs kidnapped someone and cut off their finger because they owed money.

The Associated Press reported Monday that defendants were associated with the groups Aryan Brotherhood of Texas and Dirty White Boys, and federal prosecutors have charged them with distributing methamphetamine since 2015. Nine of the members were already in police custody when federal conspiracy to charges were brought against them, and another 42 were arrested. The report noted that six other suspected members are still at large.

AP also noted that earlier this year, four of the defendants “kidnapped someone in an effort to obtain drug proceeds that they believed were owed to them,” subsequently beating them and lopping off their finger with a hatchet.

"How do you think this plays out legally or in terms of the politics of impeachment?"

"Well, legally, I’ll defer to others who are more expert. I think what it does underscore is how grossly inept and just broken down the Trump foreign policymaking process is," McFaul replied.

President Donald Trump's defense attorney is not only a subject in a criminal investigation, but is also part of a counterintelligence probe into whether he was compromised by a foreign power, CNN reported Wednesday.

This is an investigation that goes far longer and back further than we realized and also that it’s much broader than we initially thought," CNN senior justice correspondent Evan Pérez reported.

"One of the things we’re getting a picture of, a better picture of is this involves not only Giuliani’s financial entanglements with allegedly corrupt Ukrainian figures but also counterintelligence angle is there to this and the idea that perhaps Rudy Giuliani and some of his business dealings were part of essentially an influence operation, a foreign influence operation with a target being the Trump White House," he reported.

This is fucking insane.
