The FBI special agent from the Bureau’s New York office is the special agent who also targeted alleged corruption by the Louisville University basketball program under coach Rick Pitino. Three defendants — two former Adidas shoe executives and an informal sports agent — were convicted of wire fraud. Pitino was forced out of his Louisville coaching job amid reports that he profited from Adidas’ deal with the Louisville program.
Two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents recently showed up to question a businessperson in another state about his/her brother’s possible donations to the Republican National Committee during the President Donald Trump campaign.

The two special agents showed up in an FBI car with yellow New York plates in this faraway state, meaning that the New York office is handling this operation without farming it out to local agents. The license plate of the FBI car was HMV8617, and the agents showed up at 7 AM. James Comey’s daughter Maurene is an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, the virulently anti-Trump office previously led by Preet Bharara.
Anthony L. Casola worked the Louisville case.
The Courier-Journal reported: “After the government called FBI Special Agent Anthony Casola to the stand, prosecutors displayed several text exchanges and played audio from wiretapped calls from 2017. In one text exchange the government displayed between Dawkins and Pitino on May 23, 2017, Dawkins wrote: “Coach This is Christian Dawkins. I dealt with you on Jaylen Johnson. Would you have interest in Brian Bowen or are you done recruiting?'”
The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him
Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.
President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.
On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.
The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”
In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”
“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.
Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.
Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
