The Hill: Owners wife secretly shilled for Melania while publication fabricated dozens of pro-Trump hoaxes

The Hill, Trump’s fake news generator for the Ukraine Scandal and the blocked impeachment, faked Biden corruption claims, now caught/busted!

Politico: The owner of the news outlet that published the columns at the center of the Ukraine scandal helped secure an unpaid White House position for his wife — a fact the publication did not disclose to readers.

Jimmy Finkelstein, a wealthy Manhattanite who owns The Hill, was sufficiently involved that he personally discussed his wife’s arrangement with White House lawyers. His wife, former CNN producer Pamela Gross, is a longtime friend of Melania Trump, and she volunteered to help the new first lady find her footing in the East Wing.

The White House never announced Gross’ hiring, though she spent around six months advising the first lady. She filled out a security clearance questionnaire and was granted a White House email and cellphone, and a temporary access badge for use when she was in Washington.

Daily Beast:The owner of political news site The Hill reportedly helped his wife secure an unpaid White House role—but readers were never told about it. Politico reports that Jimmy Finkelstein discussed the role with White House lawyers shortly before his wife, former CNN producer Pamela Gross, was brought in as an unpaid adviser to Melania Trump.

Gross reportedly helped the first lady for around six months between August 2017 to February 2018. Politico obtained a July 2017 email from Finkelstein to Stefan Passantino, the White House’s top ethics lawyer at the time, saying, “Hope we can get contract soon as Pamela looks forward serving [sic] the country and the First Lady.” The arrangement was reportedly not mentioned in The Hill’s articles about Trump during the time period.

Finkelstein told Politico that he did not believe the arrangement posed a conflict of interest, saying, “Pamela was proud to help the first lady serve our country and the nation’s children in this way. For Pamela, this was not simply a very worthwhile effort.

It was deeply meaningful on a personal level. As the daughter of a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor sent to the Auschwitz death camp as a child, she felt that joining the first lady in helping children, here and around the globe, was tremendously humbling and personally rewarding.”

  2. If you cant kill the fact try to throw dirt to the person who owns the newspaper! Doesnt tell you anything if the story is false or true! Do your research and Biden is caught in corruption no matter who the ownes of the newspaper is!

  3. And exactly – what part of the world, and which children got helped ? Israel ? Because the rest of the children in the world – have been genocide, or trafficked by these same elites and the USGov. -including many children in the Americas.

  4. There are hardly words to describe the hubris of these people, to think that big money is all it took to get into the Whitehouse to be close to power…with no worries of exposure of nepotism because the Trump handlers could always deal with it, all while he pitched himself as the “swamp drainer”, the alligator himself.

    • “Drain The Swamp” is another Freudian slip… that nobody caught.
