Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s ex-sister in law Heather Podesta serves on the Board of the Washington DC Police Foundation.
Heather Podesta serves on the board alongside recent Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier, who served as police chief when DNC staffer and widely-reported WikiLeaks source Seth Rich was murdered in July 2016. Lanier stepped down as police chief the next month.
D.C. power broker Heather Podesta is the ex-wife of John Podesta’s lobbyist brother Tony, whose Podesta Group is one of the most powerful lobbying organizations in the world.
Other board members include representatives of CVS, Enterprise Holdings, Geico, PNC Bank, and Pepco Holdings.
Three Metropolitan police officers were wearing body cameras when they found Seth Rich alive and conscious with two shots to the back near his D.C. home in July 2016. Rich lived for more than another hour, eventually dying at the hospital.
Big League Politics’ Jeremy Bernstein requested that body camera footage, but was told to defer to the department’s FOIA guidelines, which prohibit media from getting the footage and mostly limit footage release to involved parties and lawyers.
Big League Politics reported on a major discrepancy between the Metropolitan PD’s original press release on the Seth Rich murder, which stated that officers “heard gunshots,” and subsequent police reports and Metropolitan PD statements, which maintain that officers found out about the shooting from an alert on their digital ShotSpotter audio surveillance system.
Big League Politics has reached out to Heather Podesta, inquiring as to whether Lanier or anyone on the board discussed the Seth Rich case, to her knowledge.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
