“Whatever is tolerated by the people at the top will certainly come to the bottom, and this at the expense of the innocent.”
Shortly before John McAfee, the anti-virus software guru who allegedly committed suicide, took a short time during an interview to remind the world that the responsible party for child trafficking in this country is the State Department.
These devils should contemplate the consequences that will follow once the people figure who is responsible for much of this crime, that is if they haven’t already.
“If a man be found stealing any of his brethren of the children of Israel, and maketh merchandise of him, or selleth him; then that thief shall die; and thou shalt put evil away from among you.” -Deuteronomy 24:7
Consider also what the politicians alone have been responsible for doing, even caught in the very acts.
“It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” -Luke 17:2
Now, we have ABC 7 reporting that a former owner of international adoption agency was sentenced to federal prison.
Margaret Cole, the former owner of European Adoption Consultants, was sentenced today in United States District Court in the Northern District of Ohio to three months in federal prison, and three years supervised release plus 12 months of home confinement. Cole has to pay a $7,500 fine.
This comes on the heels of her pleading guilty on February 4 to one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States and one count of making a false statement to the Polish Central authority in front of Federal Court Judge James Gwin in a Zoom hearing 7News attended in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Ohio.
The 74-year-old woman, who told the court she suffered from PTSD, high blood pressure and vertigo, accepted a plea deal from the U.S. Department of Justice that she had previously turned down in January.
7News Investigator Scott Taylor broke this story in January 2017 after learning the U.S. State Department pulled the accreditation of European Adoption Consultants based in Strongsville, Ohio that arranges adoptions for U.S. families all over the world.
The FBI raided EAC shortly after the State Department’s findings.
Cole’s trial was set to start on February 9, but after accepting a plea deal she now facing sentencing on May 27 at 10 a.m. in federal court in Cleveland, Ohio.
She faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each of the charges she agreed to plead guilty to in Thursday’s Zoom hearing.
The DOJ and Cole do not have an agreement on the length of the sentence she could receive in May.
7News On Your Side became aware of multiple families that had overseas adoptions up in the air after the State Department placed EAC on a three-year suspension.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice, three women were charged in a 13-count indictment filed on Aug. 14 in the Northern District of Ohio for their alleged roles in schemes to corruptly and fraudulently procure adoptions of Ugandan and Polish children through bribing Ugandan officials and defrauding U.S. adoptive parents, U.S. authorities, and a Polish regulatory authority.
Margaret Cole, 73, of Strongsville, Ohio, 68-year-old Debra Parris of Lake Dallas, Texas, and 41-year-old Dorah Mirembe of Kampala, Uganda, were charged in the indictment. In relation to the Uganda scheme, Parris and Mirembe were each charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and commit visa fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, three substantive FCPA counts and three substantive counts of money laundering. Parris was also charged with one count of mail fraud.
In relation to the Poland scheme, Parris and Cole were each charged with one count of conspiracy to defraud the United States. Cole was further charged with one count of making a false statement to a U.S. accrediting entity and one count of making a false statement to a Polish authority.
“The defendants allegedly resorted to bribery and fraud to engage in an international criminal adoption scheme that took children from their home countries in Uganda and Poland without properly determining whether they were actually orphaned. The defendants sought to profit from their alleged criminal activity at the expense of families and vulnerable children,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian C. Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “These charges clearly show that the Department of Justice is committed to protecting children worldwide, including those involved in the international adoption process.”
“These defendants are accused of orchestrating an alleged scheme that bribed Ugandan officials, defrauded the United States and manipulated parents inside and outside of the country,” said U.S. Attorney Justin Herdman of the Northern District of Ohio. “As a result of this alleged conduct, prospective parents were deceived, hundreds of thousands of dollars were misused and innocent children were displaced from their homes.”
As Tim Brown pointed out over the weekend from other sources, “Defense attorneys admitted in court filings that Cole is still in business after making $200 million over 40 years from selling 8000 children through fraudulent international adoptions. According to Judge James Gwin, the FBI protected Cole’s child trafficking network for 40 years and failed to investigate her. Instead, it was the State Department that investigated Cole.”
“Cole’s stepson, Robert E. Hughes III, still works for the FBI. He was assigned to investigate her case by Andy McCabe, who at the time, was Acting Director of the FBI,” he added.
Do consider the unconstitutional agency known as the FBI and what it is that they are responsible for doing(Proverbs 17:15).
In conclusion: These agencies, such as the FBI, the CIA, the ATF, the DHS, etc., have become emboldened in their crimes against the very people that they promised to protect.
It is for the people of this country to put a lawful stop to all of this and hold the party accountable for the crimes that they are guilty of committing (Psalm 94:16).
