Virginia’s new Lt. Governor Winsome Sears is a force to be reckoned with and proved nothing will stand in her way to get her job done. All documented on Twitter, of course, Sears reportedly used her high-heeled patent leather pump as a gavel in the Virginia Senate.

Washington Post reporter Laura Vozzella first tweeted that “an unknown prankster” took the gavel and hid it. However, Sears “took the trick in stride.” The Lt. Gov took off her shiny shoe, stated, “one shoe can change your life…just ask Cinderella.”

The tweet included a photograph of the shoe, which Sears retweeted from her own account with the phrase “resourcefulness – never underestimate it!” Sears has been making waves and aggravating Democrats because she is the first Black female lieutenant governor of Virginia; and she is a Republican.

Sears also controls the narrow Democrat majority in the state Senate, meaning she is the tie-breaking vote if needed, which she quickly had to do almost upon taking office. On February 10, 2022 she tweeted:

“In my role as Lieutenant Governor, I preside over the Senate each day. While I am not a member of the Senate, I hold the tie-breaking vote in the event of a tie. Today, I had my first opportunity to do so on SB137.”

SB137 was related to discretionary sentencing guidelines, reports Fox News. Sears is a “critical player in the administration of the newly sworn-in Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin, who has taken measures related to COVID-29 and critical race theory in schools.”

As Fox News reports, the administration has taken the state, run previously by a Democratic administration, by storm. “On his first day in office, Youngkin singed 11 executive actions, including needing the use of critical race theory in schools, investigating officials’ alleged wrongdoing in Loudoun County and allowing parents to decide fi their children should wear masks in schools.”

BREAKING: Clinton herself ‘agreed’ to leak Trump-Russia allegations to press

Remember this 2016 post from Hillary herself just days away from the election? During Friday’s trial of her former attorney Michael Sussmann, some juicy details behind this vey post have emerged.

“Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, said that Clinton ‘agreed’ to leak allegations that the Trump Organization had a secret communications channel with Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media during his Friday testimony” reports National Review.

The media “report” Hillary tweeted about above, was spoon-fed to them with her blessing. Mook also revealed the “purpose” for the campaign to leak it to the press was to have a reporter “run it down” further and “vet it out.”

As for Mrs. Clinton’s involvement, Mook added that he “discussed it with Hillary as well” after which, “she agreed to” their decision to turn the loose gossip over to the press.

She was then able to use Slate’s “reporting” to discuss the fake collusion publicly. Clinton then tweeted the campaign’s press release on the “statement from Jake Sullivan on New Report Exposing Trump’s Secret Line of Communication to Russia.”

FBI agent James Baker, the then-agent who Sussmann took the Alfa Bank information to, testified in the trial Wednesday. He said he was “100 percent confident” that Sussmann said he wasn’t representing a client when they met.

A text message from Sussmann to Baker from the day prior reads: “Jim — it’s Michael Sussmann. I have something time-sensitive (and sensitive) I need to discuss. Do you have availability for a short meeting tomorrow? I’m coming on my own — not on behalf of a client or company — want to help the Bureau. Thanks.”

National Review reports of the case:

The former FBI general counsel said that he would have treated the meeting and subsequent investigation differently had he known Sussmann was coming forward on behalf of the Clinton campaign.

 The evidence that Sussmann delivered to Baker came in the form of Domain Name System (DNS) data that allegedly showed frequent communications between servers associated with the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank. The data was provided to Sussmann by Joffe, an executive at the cybersecurity firm Neustar, which was also being represented by Sussmann as part of his role as a partner at the Perkins Coie law firm.

FBI agent Scott Hellman testified Tuesday that he was immediately skeptical of the data and accompanying analysis that suggested illicit communications between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank. In fact, the quality of the analysis was so poor, that Hellman questioned whether its source had a “mental disability” in a private chat with FBI colleagues, obtained by prosecutors.

Opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which Perkins Coie hired to work on behalf of the Clinton campaign, translated the DNS data into laymen’s terms and pitched it to various reporters, including Franklin Foer, a writer for Slate.

 “We certainly hoped that he would publish an article,” former Fusion GPS employee Lauren Seago testified.

Foer obliged them, touting the claims in an article published on October 31, 2016, a little over a week before Election Day.
