Illegal Customs Investigation Exposed!
It has come to our attention
over the last few months, and probably longer, that "official" Customs
internal affairs agents from Customs of the Treasury
Department or (DHS) Department of Homeland Security have
been conducting specific "witch hunts"
against any Customs employees that have communicated with
"John Carman" and interviewing
Customs employees to see if they have had any contact with
a "John Carman or the web site:
or contributed anything to the articles on the website.
Generally anyone who was
contacted did NOT have contact with
John Carman or the
web site, nor did they provide any specific information.
Several employees have been
threatened with job actions and even criminal allegations
if they did not co-operate. (extortion)It also appears
that Customs agents are committing entrapment or extortion
to obtain any evidence against a former Customs employee
and whistleblower John Carman.
John Carman also contributes to
this internet "newsletter" which is operated under the
basic fundamentals of the First Amendment of the
Constitution of the United States of America.
It has been reported that at
least "several" Customs employees have confirmed that they
were "solicited" to "wear a wire to set up John
Carman". To our knowledge, all have refused
even though they were threatened with job actions or even
criminal prosecution even though none of these people had
any real knowledge or were not providing information to
the web site or John Carman.
Not only is this a violation
of law to solicit others to wear a wire in continuance of
an illegal act, it is also part of a conspiracy to violate
entrapment laws or any law which would still be a serious
This information is being
published to further educate the PUBLIC, Customs
employees, CBP, BICE or ICE agents of the serious
ramifications of violating federal laws with regards to
retaliating against someone who is a "known" whistleblower
with extensive law enforcement background and very well
connected to the newsmedia with attorneys.
This recent activity will
cause still another lawsuit in federal court against
Customs or DHS and CBP/ICE and all the high ranking
"The whole point of the First Amendment was to make the
press a guardian of the public's right to information,
even when officials want to keep that information secret.
There are enough past examples of prosecutorial
misbehavior to justify protection. The press would be
wrong to pretend that this freedom is without cost, but it
is still, in my view, justifiable."
Special note to
internal affairs agents: The agents' names and
information will be exposed and they WILL be named in a
lawsuit. That will become "public" information and it will
be posted on the internet to further educate the public.
According to one source: "The AUSA will NOT be able to
help them now!"
