Maddow reveals former GOP VP’s secret financial deal with Saudis to ‘wage a scorched earth political war on Jews’

Published

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow revealed never-before-seen documents that appear to show former Republican Vice President Spiro Agnew engaged in a $2 million international conspiracy to attack Jewish citizens in America.

Maddow uncovered the documents while researching her “Bagman” podcast on Agnew and presented them in a special report on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

The host revealed a 1980 telegram from Agnew to Ahmed Abdul Wahab, the chief of royal protocol for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, asking for an audience with Crown Prince Fah’d.

A second telegram showed the meeting was granted.

Agnew then followed up with a detailed description of what he would be requesting in the meeting.

“Spiro Agnew was writing to solicit their help to lead a propaganda campaign in the United States to expose the Jews — to wage a scorched earth political war on Jews in America,” Maddow explained.

Agnew requested that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia deposit $2 million in a Swiss bank account so Agnew could live off of $200,000 in interest a year.

“I mean, just to be clear, this is a former American vice president writing to a foreign government asking for their help in fighting Jews in America because the Jews framed him and it’s the Jews who were destroying America and he will lead the fight against the Jews for the low, low price off $200,000 a year from the royal family,” Maddow summarized.

It appears the deal went through.

“About a month later — look at this — Agnew drafted another letter thanking the Saudi Crown Prince for coming through for him with the funds,” Maddow noted.

Law professor who studied under Alan Dershowitz shreds his ‘shockingly wrong’ case against impeaching Trump

Published

on

Aya Gruber, a professor at the University of Colorado Law School who studied under Trump impeachment attorney Alan Dershowitz at Harvard, had some uncharitable words to say about her former professor's argument against impeaching the president.

"Dershowitz was my criminal law prof, and he was a good one," Gruber writes on Twitter. "But as a crim law prof myself, I can say his motive argument (Congress shouldn't examine the internal motives of POTUS so long he could have had a good reason for withholding aid) is shockingly wrong."

A group of fringe Trump supporters has started promoting what the Food and Drug Administration describes as a "dangerous bleach" as a miracle cure for the coronavirus.

The Daily Beast's Will Sommer reports that Jordan Sather, a prominent proponent of the so-called "QAnon" conspiracy theory, recently told his followers to stock up on a liquid called the "Miracle Mineral Solution" that he claims will cure them if they become infected with the deadly virus that has spread from China to the United States.

GOP senators weren’t blindsided by Bolton — but their impeachment coverup got interrupted: columnist

Published

on

John Bolton's explosive claims about President Donald Trump's quid pro quo scheme against Ukraine weren't surprising to anyone paying attention during the impeachment inquiry.

That's why Republican senators self-incriminated themselves by complaining they'd been blindsided by a leaked manuscript of the former national security adviser's upcoming book, reported the Washington Post.

"It’s deeply revealing about the true nature of the GOP coverup," wrote the Post's Greg Sargent.
