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.

Massive wildfires have taken out whole neighborhoods in California and in Alaska, about 2.5 million acres have burned since July 3. Wildfires there are getting worse, according to experts.

The problem of climate change has reached a dangerous level for some homeowners in areas that are no longer insurable. In Miami, for example, the "street-level" is now considered the basement and insurers are dropping coverage for basements. According to the Daily Beast, at least 340,000 California homeowners lost their property insurance coverage between 2015 and 2018 because the wildfires are getting worse and companies don't want to pay out when homes are destroyed.

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, a Texas Democrat who is running for president in 2020, told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that he believes assault weapons are "instruments of terror" and the government should implement a mandatory buyback policy.

I was asked about @SenToomey saying mandatory buybacks are "awful."

I said the priorities in D.C. are screwed up.

What's awful is a 17 month-old baby shot in the face with an AR-15 in Odessa. What's awful is 22 people killed in a Walmart buying school supplies in El Paso. pic.twitter.com/JAN1xfrQYS
