Reuters admitted that they covered up their knowledge of Beto O’Rourke’s hacker past until after his Senate campaign against Ted Cruz. Why? Because O’Rourke himself made an agreement with them to hold it past the election date. (h/t Thinkologist).
Here is Reuters’ stunning admission, which they included in their braggadocios article “Backstory: How Reuters uncovered Beto O’Rourke’s teenage hacking days,” apparently without any self-awareness about their treachery: “After more than a year of reporting, Menn persuaded O’Rourke to talk on the record. In an interview in late 2017, O’Rourke acknowledged that he was a member of the group, on the understanding that the information would not be made public until after his Senate race against Ted Cruz in November 2018.”
Will they get applauded for this by liberal journalists?
Beto’s weird writings during this period alone would have been enough to cast serious doubt on his candidacy in Texas.

In part two of our three-part series about 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke’s criminal history, we now look at his ethics file, which contains some definite red flags for voters, according to research by Big League Politics.
O’Rourke’s father-in-law, William Sanders, is one of the lead architects for the Paso Del Norte Group, a private consortium that is based in El Paso, but also does business in the drug cartel-saturated Ciudad Juarez region of Mexico.
The family refuses to make relevant documents public and keeps all business records sealed. The group is known to participate in heavily influential ways in the restructuring plans of El Paso. Beto is repeatedly accused, but denies, allegations conflict of interest pertaining to Paso Del Norte.
In 2006, a voter filed a complaint, for example, naming then-El Paso City Councilman Beto O’Rourke and his family for potential conflicts of interest with redevelopment plans, also citing abuses of eminent domain powers:
O’Rourke had initially agreed and supported the plan for redevelopment of the area, but voters threatened a recall election, and he “abstained” from the vote, avoiding any serious consequences.
One major problem with the plan arose from possible displacement of the persons in the area.
IRS Convicts O’Rourke’s Family Business For Tax Fraud, Laundering
Beto O’Rourke’s mother, Melissa, ran a furniture store based in El Paso called Charlotte’s Inc. that was busted by the IRS for processing large cash payments and then reporting it inaccurately in order to avoid paying taxes on the suspicious cash.
The company pled guilty to accusations that it had restructured transactions in order to present relatively large cash payments as having been made in installments of less than $10,000. Anti-money laundering provisions of U.S. law require that a business reveal the identity of any individual who makes a cash payment above that threshold.
Charlotte and its employees illegally restructured $630,000 in payments, all from one customer, between May 2005 and October 2006. The identity of that customer is not known. U.S. District Court judge Kathleen Cardone gave a sentence of five years’ probation and a $500,000 fine, with $250,000 suspended.
The article also referenced the following details from court proceedings and documents:
Charlotte’s, Inc., represented by its owner Melissa O’Rourke, pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to a one count Information charging the company with structuring transactions involving more than $630,000 in order to evade financial reporting requirements…
O’Rourke admitted that on 15 different occasions from May 2005-Oct. 2006 one or more of the company’s employees separated cash transactions for merchandise with each transaction ranging from $22,000 to $50,000. Each transaction was separated into multiple receipts.
No receipt amounted to more than $10,000 so that IRS reporting requirements could be avoided.
Details about a potential money-laundering operation, or where the unreported money went were never referenced, and the business shuttered in August of 2017.
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.
