Disclosure: We have a source who may or may not be an active employee with Perkins Coie at the time of writing this article. All information in this article has been vetted and confirmed and we challenge anyone to contest that. Anonymity to our source is imperative especially when a documents that are sealed are concerned.
Perkins Coie first made headlines during the Presidential Electoral Campaign of 2008. They represented Barack Hussein Obama as a then-candidate, President-elect, throughout his Presidency and as a former President. In addition, they represent the “Obama For America” Foundation that later changed it’s name to “Organizing for America” upon BHO’s first term win. At that time, Perkins Coie became the official legal counsel for the DNC. In 2013 after successfully cinching his second term in office, the foundation name changed to Organizing For Action which is considered to be one in the same as the DNC. Furthermore, Perkins Coie is also curiously involved with the probes into to Hillary Clinton from Benghazi, Uranium One, missing emails and her bathroom server on behalf of their client and as counsel for her campaign organization Hillary for America.
“The DNC’s account, OFA’s account and Hillary for America account are all under one internal account. That is done to limit access and obfuscate details of expenditures” said the employee of Perkins Coie.
In an attempt to provide publicly reported information substantiating the statement above we found that many articles published in 2008 or later referring to such information, from MSM outlets have all been “archived” or removed. We reached out to many of them to obtain copies of articles they published between in 2008 and 2014, but only The Atlantic had one titled “DNC’s Merger With Obama Campaign Continues” that we could find. It was COMMON knowledge that Obama’s Campaign and the DNC were one in the same and obviously, sported the same legal counsel. In other words, it was COMMON knowledge that Perkins Coie was Obama Counsel and DNC Counsel. This contradicts Comey’s testimony, on December 7, 2018 under oath.
Obstructing Access To Information
A pattern of behavior has emerged concerning Perkins Coie (PC) and their advocacy to reduce transparency in our government. For over a decade, PC seems to have a vested interest in all politicians and key government officials and persons that have engaged in, derived from or acted in a capacity of interest to the public and not in the good way. Notably, this law firm represented Osama Bin Laden’s body guard and driver.
Their actions against citizens, politicians, press, and private citizens is aggressive, threatening and abusive when it comes to protecting their clients. .
After the flippant dismissal by U.S. Circuit Court Judge James Robertson of the lawsuit to attempt to determine whether Barack Obama is constitutionally eligible to serve as President, D.C. attorney John Hemenway received a letter from a lawyer representing Barack Obama and Joe Biden, his Vice President.Accuracy in Media
The response by PC below was a fiery threat:
Should you decline to withdraw this frivolous appeal, please be informed that we intend to pursue sanctions, including costs, expenses, and attorney’s fees, pursuant to federal Rule Appellate Procedure 38 and D.C. Circuit Rule 38.Excerpt of letter sent by PC on 04/03/2009 (below)
If Obama can break such a basic, fundamental rule of the Constitution, then what is to keep him from ignoring or suspending other basic rights, such as the Writ of Habeas Corpus?Margaret Calhoun Hemenway
Notably, Judge Robertson was the one who decided that Hamdan, Osama Bin Laden’s bodyguard and driver could not be tried for crimes because he was a “prisoner of war”! This is the same Judge Robertson who was supposedly the OH connection in the Noriega/Seal Cocaine Crime group in the 1980’s involving Bush 41, Clinton and William Barr. Read more about that here.
Aside from the fact that Robert Bauer’s wife was the WH Communications Director, the interests of Perkins Coie and actual actions presented to you from hereafter are incredible. It was reported by WND that “In total, Obama has paid Perkins Coie, a single law firm, $2.6 million since he announced his campaign for presidency. By contrast, a cumulative total of all of Sen. John McCain’s legal consulting fees, from Jan. 1, 2007, to October 2009, amounts to $1.6 million.”
In 2008 our firm was tasked to draft two pieces of legislation for BHO…
You see, the courts have slowly been privatized. Outcomes for the highest bidder or for their clique. Never directly, indirectly. This is how outcomes like what I am sharing with you occur.PC insider
Obstruction of access to information is what the real problem is and has been for decades in our country. Everything is compartmentalized and accessed by few and almost instantly ARCHIVED.
You would think that the President of the United States has full access to everything. He doesn’t.
PERKINS COIE & EXECUTIVE ORDERS
PRESIDENTIAL RECORDS ARE A MATTER OF NATIONAL SECURITY
Executive Order 13489—Presidential Records
On January 21, 2009 only minutes after his inauguration, BHO singed his First Executive order. This EO made it almost IMPOSSIBLE for the next President or ANY agency to gain access to Presidential records. Though, this is very important because if you look at the Definition of what is considered Presidential Records you will realize just how expansive it is.
§ 2201 Definitions… 2) The term “Presidential records” means documentary materials, or any reasonably segregable portion thereof, created or received by the President, his immediate staff, or a unit or individual of the Executive Office of the President whose function is to advise and assist the President, in the course of conducting activities which relate to or have an effect upon the carrying out of the constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties of the President.EXPANDED DEFINITIONS
Not only that but it revoked section 6 of EO 13233 What does that mean?
- Right of Congress and Courts to Obtain Access to anything deemed Presidential Record is REVOKED.
- Made it next to impossible for any incumbent President to access anything that is deemed Presidential record using his Executive Privilege.
EXPANDING CLASSIFICATION AUTHORITY
BHO began his First Year of Presidency by ensuring that all things that are related to him, by him, directly involving him or indirectly – he can seal and limit access by way of EO 13489 and removed any rights of access by Congress and Courts. In addition, he limited all future Presidents from invoking Executive Privilege to access such records. Thus, BHO thought he could end his first year with giving the people a grand illusion that he was giving them transparency with EO 13526.
This EO was supposed to be the beginning of government transparency but all it provided was millions of cold war era documents and:
- It created the National Declassification Center
This was supposed to make it easier to request access to information but it essence it added many more stipulations to get it.
- Expanded Authority to Classify by way of broad content categories
- Reinforced his EO 13489 and ensured that if anything was pending litigation it would NOT be even be reviewed for declassification (@HEMENWAY).
We asked our CP insider the following question :
If the EO’s were drafted by you to protect his information why add Executive Order 13526 Section 1.7?Question by T_O_R_E
Executive Order 13526
“Classification Prohibitions and Limitations. (a) In no case shall information be classified, continue to be maintained as classified, or fail to be declassified in order to:
(1) conceal violations of law, inefficiency, or administrative error;
(2) prevent embarrassment to a person, organization, or agency;
(3) restrain competition; or
(4) prevent or delay the release of information that does not require protection in the interest of the national security.”
EO 13489 wasn’t crafted to stop the “birthers” from petitioning. While he was President he OWNED the courts and we sent many Cease and Desist Letters. It was to make sure no one in the future could access it. Presidential Records are subject to National Security etc., EO 13526 was the nail on the coffin for future administrations and limiting the access to information in the case of wrongdoing. After all, to be stripped of the right to exercise Executive Privileged was the point of EO 13489 and EO13526 was more glimmer than substance to increase limitations.PC Insider
With EO 13526 Sec 1.7 we should be entitled to access of HRC server and the DNC servers. We have administrative error , we have possible hacking so under section 1.7(a)1 and (2) we are good to go right?Question by T_O_R_E
The firm was paid millions of dollars to draft two Executive Orders do you really think we didn’t think of everything? Sec.1.7(d) (e) are key to minimize the authority of section 1.7(a)1 and (2) . Plus can’t have Congress or a Court intervene. EO 13489 took care of that. Iron Clad.PC Insider
HOW TO WE GET THE SERVERS?
There is a letter. Two actually. They advise how requests to obtain the DNC and HRC servers are disallowed. The Oversight Committees are not asking the right questions.PC Insider
Is there a court decision we don’t know about ruling that DNC and HRC servers don’t have to be turned over? Did the agencies of the Obama Administration classify them as Presidential Records and or covered under EO 13526. Is it just a matter of a stroke of a pen?
Comey’s lawyer specializes in ORGANIZED CRIME. That speaks volumes! Perkins Coie represents the Administration and person under-whom, all these hacks, breaches, missing emails, unconstitutional EOs, Benghazi, Uranium One, Cash-on- planes, abuse of office, FISA abuse, Russia Investigation and more transpired.
