Bill Donohue Takes Credit For New FBI Email Probe

Catholic League blowhard Bill Donohue writes:

On August 31, the same day that the most explosive story on this issue was published in the New York Post—it showed Weiner using his son as a “chick magnet” to lure sexual relations—I filed a complaint with the New York City Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), the New York branch of the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.

That same day, Daily Mail Online, a British media outlet, reported that “a ACS spokesman said: ‘In order to protect children and their privacy, ACS does not comment on specific cases of allegations of child maltreatment, regardless of whether or not allegations have been reported, are being investigated, or have not resulted in an investigation. It came after Bill Donohue, the president of the Catholic League, urged the New York State Office of Children and Family Services to investigate Weiner for sexually abusing his young son.’”

On September 26, I received a phone call from ACS. I was told that my complaint has been accepted and that Weiner would be investigated. The next day, the same ACS official called to question me further. A week later, on October 3, FBI agents seized Weiner’s laptop, phone and tablet.

Why did I trigger this investigation? As I said in my news release of August 31, “I am well aware of the plague of child sexual abuse that marks virtually every sector of society, including, regrettably, the Catholic Church. I am writing to express my concerns about the emotional and physical well being of Jordan Weiner, son of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin.”

The political fallout that is now apparent must be laid squarely at the doorstep of Hillary Clinton. Had she not had her own server, the FBI would have nothing to investigate.

      Nailed it.

    • crewman

      Notice how he strings together a number of unrelated events and then claims credit for breaking the story. His entire story is about Weiner and his use of his son to attract women arand how he reported that to Child Protective Services but then he suddenly arrives at the conclusion that this is all Hillarys fault.

      Dear canoebum
      Jesus Christ was born a Jew!
      The way I remember reading the story was that the Jews were given the opportunity to release Jesus Christ by Pontius Pilate but they instead chose to release the bandit Barabbas. Pontius Pilate is portrayed as reluctantly yielding to the insistence of the crowd and washed his hands of the crowds decision!
      A passage found in the Gospel of Matthew has the crowd saying (of Jesus), “Let his blood be upon us and upon our children”.
      The crowd in Jerusalem at that time would have been Jewish!

        • B Snow

          I can’t find any recent stories. It could be that no priests are molesting children anymore.

          Or it could be that, like every other case of sexual abuse by a priest, we won’t find out about it until much later, when the kids are adults and are brave enough to speak up about it.

          Let’s check back in 15 years. Maybe Seamus will have a real disqus account by then and will have stopped upvoting his own comments.

          • ​Séamus​ ​​​​​​Ó Muineacháin

            Dear B Snow
            So you would seem to be avoiding saying that you have no current or even recent evidence of homosexual Roman Catholic priests molesting boys. Just conjecture and please don’t bother with the historical homosexual Roman Catholic priestly abuse that took place 30 plus years ago and i won’t bore you with child sexual abuse in public schools that was consistently covered up!

          • B Snow

            I didn’t avoid saying it, I agreed I couldn’t find anything recent in the news. Just like public school abuse, it doesn’t come out when it’s happening, because abused kids are scared of the authority figure abusing them.

            Or maybe parents today have learned not to leave their kids alone with priests.

          • ​Séamus​ ​​​​​​Ó Muineacháin

            Dear B Snow
            You didn’t say it because couldn’t say it because you have no evidence of homosexual Roman Catholic priestly sex abuse. You can only talk about the possibility!

            You appear not interested in the here and now with regard to schools in New England – why for example no legislation to tackle abuse under their roof? Why no concern for abuse that is happening now?

          • B Snow

            I can’t find any news articles about abuse happening now in NE schools, only what happened in the past at private schools that has been recently discovered. Do you have links?

            Of course all abuse should be stopped, and any attempts to cover it up should receive severe punishment, regardless of the organization perpetrating these crimes.

            It’s funny that you mention legislation to tackle abuse. New York tried to pass some. The details are in this article: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/statutes-limitations-reform-advocates-call-ny-national-shame-article-1.2621981

            and here’s an excerpt from it:

            “Those who oppose the window provision or eliminating statute of limitations outright include the Catholic Church, the insurance lobby and other religious institutions who say they can’t afford to defend themselves against lawsuits that are old and difficult to prosecute.”

          • ​Séamus​ ​​​​​​Ó Muineacháin

            Dear B Snow
            Markey spent 18 years of her life trying to stab the Catholic Church. First elected in 1998, she has been at the forefront of bills that would do absolutely nothing to protect public school students who have been molested by their teachers. Her sole objective was to sponsor bills that exclusively targeted private institutions, her real goal being parochial schools. The one time she strayed from her agenda and included public schools in her bill, she incurred the wrath of the public school establishment.

            Markey’s low point came this past spring when she falsely accused Brooklyn Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio of trying to bribe her nearly a decade ago. It showed a side to her so dirty that no respectable person could stomach it. She was asked to resign in June. Now she’s toast.

            In recent years, the New York Daily News has turned strongly anti-Catholic, highlighting stories on miscreant priests while burying similar stories on rabbis. It has also been a steadfast supporter of Markey’s selective indignation, ripping the Catholic Church at will.

            Another loser is attorney Marci Hamilton. She spends her days working with other anti-Catholic lawyers across the nation plotting to sue the Catholic Church. She is a dishonest person whose agenda is so totally transparent that no sentient human being could fail to see it.

            Lets have a level playing field where ALL abuse not just Catholic homosexual priestly abuse is treated in exactly the same way in the media and the courts.

            I wish you good health.

    • Zippity-Do-Daddy

      He would not! To him the problem lands squarely on homosexuals who have some nefarious plan in which they invade the Catholic priesthood.

      Here’s the kicker though — while he cries ‘statute of limitations’ and ‘they paid for their crime’ — he lambasted Peter Yarrow of the fold group Peter, Paul and Mary who has paid his debt to society.

          • GayOldLady

            Also watch where Donald Trump’s campaign is going this week. That will show you how desperate he is to flip blue states because he knows he’s on the precipice of losing swings states after exhaustive campaigning in those States. He’s going to WI & MI and he has NO chance of winning either.

            The missing element that none of us are capable of factoring in are the GOTV efforts and the internal Campaign polls. The campaigns know exactly which counties they have to win in each of the battleground states and how much they have to win them by. All we can do is vote for Hillary and encourage others to vote for Hillary. I have confidence that she will win, but regardless I know I’ve done my part as have most of the posters here.

        • GayOldLady

          CNN: In North Carolina — a must-win state for Trump — an NBC/Wall Street
          Journal/Marist University poll found Clinton ahead, 47% to Trump’s 41%.
          The same poll found Clinton ahead 48% to 43% in early October.

    • GayOldLady

      The NV and the NC poll are Remington Poll numbers which is an (R) polling org. Early voting reports from NV have Hillary locking away sizable margin before election day. The only one of those polls that looks correct is the Ohio poll

    • billbear1961

      Jon Ralston has all but called Nevada for Hillary, because of the early voting numbers.

      Harry Enten from 538 has said that in their voting simulations, Hillary wins the election 95% of the time if she takes Nevada.

    • vorpal

      Over on slowlyboiledfrog.com (another LGBT rights site worth checking out), we have our resident douchey conservative Catholic, DR84, who insists that the only activity that is sex / sexual is unprotected penis + vagina and what two guys do together is just self-gratification.

      This type of thinking explains why the priest raping of little boys is not considered sexual abuse and those priests are not judged as sexual predators.

        They probably use such specious reasoning to exonerate Drumpf from sexual assault.

    So let me see if I’ve got this straight.

    FBI agents have now obtained a warrant to examine the new emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop, and it now appears possible that the FBI will share more information about the new significance of those emails — or lack thereof — before Election Day. Maddeningly, we don’t even know whether that will happen — sources are now hinting they may tell us more soon, but it’s not definitive — adding layer upon layer of uncertainty in the final stretch.

    If those partisan BASTARDS are going to CONTINUE to interfere in this election in an effort to SLANDER Clinton, I want to know what they have on TRUMP and his connections to RUSSIA:

    “In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government – a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity,” he said. “I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public…and yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.”

    The FBI’s double standards are OUTRAGEOUS!!

    In view of Comey’s malicious attempt to damage Hillary, I think Reid should tell us what they told him about TRUMP and RUSSIA, especially as he tells us that letting us know would NOT endanger American interests.

    • Steverino

      And of course, the mainstream “rigged liberal media” doesn’t say boo about any of this.

        So should Hillary’s surrogates on the campaign trail.

        This is a BIG story: Reid should REVEAL what he knows if the FBI remains silent on THIS issue while shooting off its mouth–against LONG-established DoJ policy–and in violation of the Hatch Act–about finding “new” emails on a Clinton aide’s computer!!

    Fuck this guy for making me want to defend Anthony Wiener!

    He may have been a weak-ass sexting addict, who to the best of our knowledge never met or engaged in any physical sexual contact with those women. And the latest incident sexting with the 15(?) year old girl is definitely not something to be taken lightly. But it pales in comparison to the American tradition of far worse physical abuse and child-marrying behavior exhibited by a number of entertainers, southern politicians, and religious cult leaders over the last century.

    While Huma Abedin should have in hind-sight taken a much stronger stance against this behavior to nip the problem in the bud back when she first found out she was pregnant, I don’t fault her for wanting to forgive him for what at the time was really a trivial problem compared to the shit other women have put up with. If they weren’t both such public figures, they might have even had a chance to work through this, save him from his own bad decisions and poor impulse control, and maybe even save their family.

    Fuck this guy for using Jordan Wiener as a religo-political tool to stroke his own pius ego and for even suggesting that this has anything to do with Hillary Clinton.

  • ChrisMorley

    TwoFerOne today
    Catholic League president Bill Donohue also expressed concern at how Walmart and Amazon seem to have “no problem” offending Church workers. Two Halloween costumes depict a sexually excited priest and a pregnant nun.
    “There are no excuses for what Amazon is doing, but Walmart is worse,” Donohue said. “It likes to tout itself as a “Christian-friendly” store, yet when it comes to Catholics, it drops its guard. It is not a good cultural sign when corporate elites are more sensitive to cross-dressers than they are to Catholics.” http://www.christiantoday.com/article/halloween.costumes.mocking.priests.nuns.criticised.by.u.s.catholic.groups/99305.htm

    Unfortunately both Walmart and Amazon have now sold out, so no pictures. I don’t think it came with this kneeling accessory.

    I am a devout Roman Catholic and go on record as saying that Bill Donohue does not reflect my views or those of any devout Roman Catholic. He practices a heretical faith that places right-wing politics before Jesus Christ. It is incumbent upon all people, Catholics and non-Catholics to bombard Archbishop Dolan’s office in New York with calls to suppress the hate group known ans ‘The Caholic League’. There is nothing ‘Catholic’ about what he is doing. Bill Donohue makes a mockery of the faith!
