    And now we know why he's leaving. DIRTBAG!


    Former U.S. Attorney: DOJ Should Open a Criminal Investigation into Harry Reid Pushing EB-5 Visa Expansion

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) says he intends to retire at the end of his term in 2017. But he may still face legal pressure before he leaves.

    Former U.S. Attorney Joseph diGenova, a leading legal expert on the prosecution and defense of white collar criminals, tells Breitbart News there is enough public evidence to launch a criminal investigation of Reid.

    “Here’s the issue,” diGenova tells Breitbart News in an exclusive interview. “Because his son was involved representing the SLS Casino and Hotel that sought the expedited EB-5 visa processing from the Department of Homeland Security, and because Harry Reid intervened personally, there is obviously the appearance of impropriety here.”

    “The Senate Ethics Committee, if it examines this independently, would see this as an instance of Reid ‘bringing reproach upon the Senate.’”

    “But there is also the issue of criminal conduct. This requires further investigation,” diGenova says.

    “There is no doubt in my mind,” diGenova continues, “that an independent Department of Justice or an independent U.S. Attorney would open a preliminary criminal investigation into Harry Reid’s intervention into the expediting of EB-5 visas and would in addition convene a grand jury.”

    “I would open a grand jury on this in a New York minute,” diGenova says.

    Earlier in the week, the Department of Homeland Security’s [DHS] Inspector General issued a scathing report that concluded “Reid pressured a compliant DHS official to override normal departmental procedures and rush through 230 EB-5 foreign visa applications, thereby freeing up $115 million the applicants invested in the SLS Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas [SLS].”

    Breitbart News reported that “the owner of that casino project had hired Reid’s son, Rory Reid, to provide legal representation for the project.” The younger Reid represented SLS during 2012 and 2013, the same time his father intervened in the DHS EB-5 foreign visa application process on behalf of SLS.

    On Thursday, the public interest advocacy group Cause of Action called on the Department of Justice to launch a criminal investigation into Reid’s intervention in the DHS EB-5 visa program.

    “There is a pattern of behavior here by Harry Reid,” according to diGenova. “He’s not just a Senator. He’s the former Majority Leader, now the Minority Leader who controls the budget of DHS.”

    “This fact pattern is particularly disturbing because the conduct is so brazen. Senator Reid is acting with impunity,” diGenova notes.

    As Breitbart News reported, Reid conducted a similar intervention in August 2012 when he hosted a meeting between Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. At the meeting, Menendez made the case for his friend and donor, Dr. Salomon Melgen, who was at the time embroiled in what was supposed to be an independent adjudicatory process at HHS involving $8.9 million the department said he overbilled Medicare.

    Notably, Reid arranged the meeting immediately after Melgen donated $300,000 to the Senate Majority PAC, a Super PAC that has close ties to Reid. By the end of 2012, Melgen’s donations to the Senate Majority PAC totaled $700,000.

    DiGenova says Reid’s most recent case of blatant and aggressive intervention, this time in the Department of Homeland Security’s adjudication process, is troubling.

    “Harry Reid’s intervention in the issuance of EB-5 visas raises very serious red flags of criminal conspiracy,” diGenova says.

    While Reid’s conduct raises a red flag for former U.S. Attorney diGenova, the DOJ appears to be turning a blind eye to his troublesome behavior.

    Indeed, the DOJ’s lack of interest in Reid, compared to its investigation of Senator Menendez, a well known critic of President Obama’s foreign policy, and the recent announcement of an FBI investigation into disgraced Republican Congressman Aaron Schock (R-IL) seems to back the perception that, under President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, the DOJ has become highly politicized.

    Press reports indicate that the grand jury that has been investigating Menendez for several months will soon return a bill of indictment against him on corruption charges.

    DiGenova has a suggestion for Republicans in Congress who have yet to distinguish themselves for successfully going after any of the multiple cases of Obama administration corruption:

    “Republicans in charge of Senate and House oversight committees should conduct hearings and investigations on Harry Reid’s intervention in the issuanceof EB-5 visas by DHS,” diGenova says.

    “They should conduct those hearings the same way Democrats have in the past, by using the power of subpoena to compel testimony and obtain documents. They should issue subpoenas, too,” diGenova advises.

    While Republicans control both the House and Senate in the current Congress, they have yet to use the power of subpoena effectively. The Harry Reid case provides plentiful opportunities to change that pattern of ineffectiveness.

    DiGenova has some suggestions as to whom the Republicans should target as witnesses with those subpoenas.

    “They should subpoena Terry McAuliffe, Rory Reid, investors in the SLS Casino and Hotel financial offerings, and anyone involved in this,” diGenova suggests.

    DiGenova served as the U.S. Attorney in the District of Columbia for four years. While there, “he supervised complex Federal criminal and civil matters including international drug smuggling, public corruption, espionage, insider trading, tax fraud, extradition, fraud, RICO, export control and international terrorism.”

    DiGenova is currently a founding partner of the Washington, D.C. law firm diGenova & Toensing.

    Default THE REAL REASON HARRY REID IS RETIRING

    Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) explains his shocking decision to not seek re-election and retire when his term ends in 2016 by telling the New York Times, “he was worried his race would consume campaign money that would be needed in other competitive states as Democrats try to regain control of the Senate.”

    “I think it is unfair for me to be soaking up all the money to be re-elected with what we are doing in Maryland, in Pennsylvania, in Missouri, in Florida,” Reid told theTimes.

    Reid said neither his recent eye injury nor concern over his chances of winning played a factor in his decision.

    But the real reason Reid is retiring may have nothing to do with any of these excuses and everything to do with his concerns that a possible Republican Presidential victory in 2016 would lead to the appointment of a Republican Attorney General in January 2017.

    A Republican Attorney General would be almost certain to initiate a criminal investigation into Reid’s abuse of his political power in a brazen intervention in the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) issuance of EB-5 visas to investors in a Las Vegas casino and hotel that was represented by his son, Rory Reid, as was highlighted in a report released by the Inspector General of DHS last week.

    “I think Harry Reid’s getting out of town ahead of the posse,” former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova tells Breitbart News.

    On Thursday, the non-profit group Cause of Action called on the Department of Justice (DOJ) to launch a criminal investigation of Reid. Citing the specific federal statutes that were violated, the group said Reid “participat[ed] in unlawful political activity, possible coercion and fraud related to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services’ EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program.”

    The DOJ under President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder is so highly politicized it would never launch a criminal investigation into the many scandals in which Harry Reid is at the center.

    But, as diGenova told Breitbart News on Friday, “[t]here is no doubt in my mind that an independent Department of Justice or an independent U.S. Attorney would open a preliminary criminal investigation into Harry Reid’s intervention into the expediting of EB-5 visas and would in addition convene a grand jury.” (emphasis added)

    Reid announced his surprising decision to retire just days after the DHS Inspector General released a report that concluded: “Reid pressured a compliant DHS official to override normal departmental procedures and rush through 230 EB-5 foreign visa applications, thereby freeing up $115 million the applicants invested in the SLS Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.”

    As Breitbart News reported, “the owner of that casino project had hired Reid’s son, Rory Reid, to provide legal representation for the project.”

    Then there’s Reid’s complicity in Senator Robert Menendez’s (D-NJ) abuse of his political office by intervening in an ongoing Department of Health and Human Services adjudicatory process involving $8.9 million in Medicare overbilling by his friend and campaign funds donor, Dr. Salomon Melgen.

    As Breitbart News reported, Reid “hosted a meeting between Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. At the meeting, Menendez made the case for his friend and donor, Dr. Salomon Melgen, who was at the time embroiled in what was supposed to be an independent adjudicatory process at HHS involving $8.9 million the department said he overbilled Medicare.”

    Reid’s intervention came “immediately after Melgen donated $300,000 to the Senate Majority PAC, a Super PAC that has close ties to Reid. By the end of 2012, Melgen’s donations to the Senate Majority PAC totaled $700,000.”

    For his part in that intervention, Senator Menendez has been the subject of an ongoing criminal PAC, a Super PAC that has close ties to Reid. By the end of 2012, Melgen’s donations to the Senate Majority PAC totaled $700,000.”

    For his part in that intervention, Senator Menendez has been the subject of an ongoing criminal investigation by the DOJ. Press reports indicate that Menedez is expected to be indicted on charges of public corruption very soon, though last minute negotiation efforts by his attorneys may delay or possibly forestall such action.

    The damaging information an independent DOJ investigation could turn up with the exercise of subpoena power on hundreds of investors and business associates involved in the numerous Harry Reid scandals could be substantial.

    A recent report by ABC News indicates the kinds of embarrassing information likely to turn up when DOJ investigators start turning over the rocks in Reid’s landscape of insider deals.

    One of the 230 foreign investors who obtained a visa in return for investing in the SLS Hotel and Casino of Las Vegas, the company represented by Rory Reid, was linked to child pornography in China. Two others, ABC reported, had knowingly submitted false documentation to the DHS as part of their visa application process.

    According to the DHS Inspector General’s report, Reid pressured DHS official Alejandro Mayorkas, (then the head of the department’s United States Citizenship and Immigration Services agency, now Deputy Secretary at DHS) to expedite these questionable visa applications and rush them through without the normal rigorous review.

    Given the improper level of scrutiny given these three foreign investors in the casino deal by DHS, it is unclear if the remaining 227 foreign investors in this casino deal are equally suspect.

    More ominously, this lack of scrutiny may have allowed foreign investors who pose a national security threat to the country to obtain visas and a path to citizenship.

    Reid’s retirement announcement was a sudden and dramatic reversal of even his most recent statements about his plans.

    To hear Reid tell it, he was planning to stay in the Senate for many years to come. As recently as two months ago, Reid emphatically declared he was running in 2016.

    “We have quite an operation in Nevada that hasn’t lost a step, and we’re off and running. At this stage, I’m fully intending to run,” he told the New York Times on January 22.

    Reid’s response to the DHS report has been to double-down with impunity in defense of his potentially criminal conduct.

    “If it had it to do over again, I’d try even harder,” he told a Nevada public radio station on Friday about his role in pressuring the DHS to expedite the E5-5 visas for the Las Vegas casino his son represented.

    Reid went even further and besmirched the integrity of the Inspector General of the DHS, the author of the report.

    “The Homeland Security report came from a bunch of whiners at the Department of Homeland Security,” he asserted brazenly.

    (You can hear the full interview at the 13:04 mark here.)

    With Barack Obama serving in the White House and Eric Holder as Attorney General, Harry Reid can get away with flaunting the law and attacking the integrity of the “whiner” Inspector General at DHS whose report documents how Reid abused his political power to benefit his political allies and family.

    But if a Republican is elected President in 2016, there will be a new sheriff in town. Harry Reid knows the posse assembled by this newly appointed Attorney General is unlikely to consider Reid’s critics at DHS to be “whiners.” In fact, they are likely to be part of the posse.
