US State Department official exposed as a white nationalist organizer: report

Published

on

A new report from the Southern Poverty Law Center’s HateWatch claims that an official of the United States State Department has been working secretly as a white nationalist organizer.

The report has found that Matthew Q. Gebert, who works as a foreign affairs officer assigned to the Bureau of Energy Resources and has been with the department since 2013, has for years gone by the online name of “Coach Finstock,” which he has used to spread white supremacist propaganda and advocate for a whites-only country.

HateWatch also discovered that Gebert appeared on a white nationalist podcast in May 2018 and said that white people “need a country of our own with nukes, and we will retake this thing lickety split.”

A review of Gebert’s online history suggests that he started out as an ordinary conservative when he first came to the State Department in 2013, but by 2015 he had become a fully radicalized white nationalist.

“I got into this [movement] and off the conservative reservation in 2015,” he explained last year while posting on a white nationalist forum.

HateWatch reached out to Gebert to ask him for comment on his racist political beliefs but has not received a response.

Trump was scheduled to begin speaking at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time at the Broadmoor World Arena, which has a capacity of 8,000. Trump took the stage 25 minutes later.

The rally is seen as a thank you for Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), who voted to acquit the commander-in-chief following the Senate impeachment trial.

Garner is facing a tough re-election in 2020 in a state that has been trending Democratic.

Putin is backing Trump in 2020 — but is also seeking to undermine his legitimacy: Ambassador McFaul

Published

on

The former ambassador to Russia warned of the "extremely scary" report that Russian President Vladimir Putin is supporting Trump's 2020 reelection -- and is already meddling in the Democratic Primary.

Ambassador Michael McFaul was interviewed Thursday by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber on "The Beat."

"I don't understand why the president doesn't understand that this is no good for him," McFaul said. "It discredits his own election or reelection. So he should be out in front of this condemning what the Russians are doing instead of trying on cover it up."
