Charles McGonigal, a former senior FBI agent, appears to be close to entering a plea to charges related to his alleged employment of a sanctioned Russian tycoon.
According to a judge’s order from Monday, retired special agent McGonigal, who oversaw the FBI Counterintelligence Division in New York, “may wish to enter a change of plea.” The order designated the following week as the “plea proceeding” in New York.
At the time of his arrest in January, McGonigal, 54, had previously entered a not-guilty plea to the accusations against him in Manhattan and Washington, D.C. He had also been freed on a $500,000 personal recognizance bond. If proven guilty, McGonigal may spend a lifetime behind bars.
A New York-based indictment from the Department of Justice accuses McGonigal and former Soviet/Russian diplomat Sergey Shestako of violating and conspiring to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, as well as of conspiring to commit money laundering and money laundering.
Specifically, the pair were accused of violating U.S. sanctions “by agreeing to provide services to Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian oligarch,” U.S. Attorney Damian Williams in a statement in January. “They both previously worked with Deripaska to attempt to have his sanctions removed, and, as public servants, they should have known better. This Office will continue to prosecute those who violate U.S. sanctions enacted in response to Russian belligerence in Ukraine in order to line their own pockets.”
McGonigal was indicted in D.C. for allegedly hiding $225,000 in cash from a former Albanian intelligence agent who later turned FBI informant.
“Covering up your contacts with foreign nationals and hiding your personal financial relationships is a gateway to corruption,” U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves said at the time. “The FBI should be commended for handling the delicate and difficult task of investigating a former executive. This investigation demonstrates their commitment to act as an impartial enforcer of the law. The FBI and the Department will guard the best interests of the United States and hold to account those who make false statements and try to deceive the Bureau.”
Seth DuCharme, McGonigal’s attorney, stated in a recent status call in the D.C. case that there was a “decent chance the case is going to be resolved” without having to go to trial, according to CNN. McGonigal’s legal team has not yet responded to the judge’s order.
Ok, this may sound off-topic but it really isn’t.
Who else is sick and tired of the woke agenda being shoved down our throats daily?
You know what makes it even worse is that we are funding it with our dollars.
Yep, and it stinks.
Every day we are fighting the culture war that is destroying our nation and when we go to the store we are funding it with our dollars.
However, it doesn’t have to be that way and I am so excited to find alternatives.
The only “catch”?
It’s Invite only.
Good thing you know someone that has the invites….(me!).
Yep! I would not make a suggestion if I wasn’t going to hook you up.
If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here and tell them SASSY sent you: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx
It’s the real deal for sure, and since it is invite only and does not run like other corrupt conglomerates they may have the SHUT OFF invites if they grow too fast.
We need to stop sending our dollars to the corporations that hate us and want to see us gone!
Remember the Georgia Guidestones?
They literally told us they wanted to reduce us from 8 billion people on Earth down to only 500 million.
No big deal, right?
Just an elimination of 94% of all people living right now.
And yet we continue to shop at their big stores and send them our money because until now we’ve had little choice.
Well, today that changes.
It’s time to “ditch and switch” and change where you send your dollars each month.
What if I told you instead of sending your money to Jeff Bezos and Costco and Walmart, you could shop at the LAST pro-America, freedom-loving, American designer, manufacturer, and shipper of all the stuff you buy each month?
Oh, and what if I told you the products are BETTER and often CHEAPER?
Yes, for real.
And what if I told you this is the best-kept secret you’ve never heard of before, but that this company has been doing this for the last 37 years?
And their founder was once placed on Barack Hussein Obama’s list of the Top 10 most “Dangerous Conservatives” in America?
(a list I one day hope to make myself!)
All of that is real and I’m so excited to tell you about it and I hope you’ll join the MISSION with me.
Here’s a quick summary of this company that I’m so excited to now be partnered up with on this mission:
Sound good to anyone else?
I can get you in, but you can’t just go sign up.
They only want people on the same mission to join and they’re happy to say “no” to the Far-Left Libs!
They’ve been doing it for 37 years, and it works great.
Oh, and did I mention the products are non-toxic and don’t have all the chemicals and crap like Red Dye 40 that all the Big Corporations put in their products to weaken you?
To wear you down?
To make you — and your family — sick?
Because then when you get sick you’ll buy their drugs!
Sorry folks, I don’t play that game and neither does my family.
We’re talking about the LAST all-natural, grass-fed, no hormone, massive beef cattle ranch in the United States….
We’re talking Fluoride Free Toothpaste, chemical-free cleaners, and Deet-free mosquito repellant!
What novel concepts, right?
Stop sending your money to these 11 corporations that do NOT have your best interest at heart:
It’s an ILLUSION of choice.
There’s only one pro-American, American-made and manufactured, chemical-free, toxin-free, hormone-free, company left….and I’m teaming up with them to FIGHT BACK!
As I said, it’s Invite Only and the invite is entirely free!
In fact, I’ve assembled a team of patriots who will personally get you invited and signed up….if you want in.
Folks, we don’t have many strongholds left.
This is one.
And I’m all in.
If you’d like to find out more and get a FREE personal invite, just go here: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx
Tell them Sassy sent you and I promise you will get a personal call or text. If you want an email make sure you use one where one of the team members can get in touch with you.
Don’t freak out when you do.
And make sure you tell them you are interested in the Black Angus beef!
I know I tend to get concerned when I get messages from numbers I don’t recognize, but if you request a Free Invite (Link here: https://bit.ly/43LHNdx you WILL have someone from my Inner Circle reach out to you….so be ready!
These are awesome people and I think you’ll love getting a chance to talk with them.
And they’ll help get you all set up.
Who’s with me?
