Trump’s National Security Council Adviser just sued Politico for exposing his role.
Kashyap “Kash” Patel, an Indian American official in President Donald Trump’s National Security Council, is at the center of a controversy for his alleged involvement in the Ukraine scandal.
Refuting the charges leveled against him Patel, Senior Director of counter terrorism at NSC, has filed a defamation law suit against Politico as well as journalist Natasha Bertrand.Politico had reported Patel’s involvement in Trump’s reported plan to withhold $400 million in military aid to Ukraine to pressure the new Ukrainian president to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
The suit has been filed in a Virginia state court against the American political opinion company, Politico which alleged that Patel presented himself as an imposter Ukraine expert in the White House.

Patel is seeking $25 million from Politico alleging defamation. Patel’s suit says that at no time before October 30, Kash had ever communicated on Ukraine with the President.
Interestingly, the publicly released transcripts of the testimony to the House Intelligence Committee-led impeachment Inquiry of former NSC Russia expert Fiona Hill and its current Ukraine expert Col. Alexander Vindman also refer to Patel’s role in the matter.
But who is this Indian American official currently caught between Trump administration loyalists and those trying to expose the administration?
Kash Patel is a lawyer who has in the past, worked for the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee when California Republican David Nunes was its chair.
Patel joined the White House in February. He is better known as the principal author of Nunes Memo issued by Nunes accusing FBI and the Justice Department of bias against Trump.
Patel has also in the past, worked as a counter-terrorism prosecutor for the Justice Department.
Born and raised in Garden City, New York, Patel’s parents originally hail from Gujarat in India. The family immigrated to the U.S. from East Africa by way of Canada during the 1970s.
An alumnus of the university of Richmond, Patel studied law at the University College London and Pace University’s Law School.
He worked in Miami as a federal public defender before joining the Justice Department in 2014.
he’s not just Indian or whatever, he’s Hindu. They are the one of the most bigoted hateful forms of human scum in the Eastern Hemisphere, but at a more depraved level. No wonder these Hindu politicos in the US are some of the most despised figures. Bobby Jindal, Tulsi Gabbard, Ajit Pai, Seema Virma..and why not, throw in half Indian Nikki Haley why not, just to name a few.
Do you know the importance of linear architecture in the history of U.S.A.
This country was built on rectangular lots, rectangular houses and straight roads for the first 300 hundred years. It became the greatest, wealthiest and most prosperous among all other countries in the world. There is no other country in the world built as per the linear architecture like Americans. Now the Americans do not construct any rectangular houses and build straight roads. I believe after my extensive research on this subject, that is the reason why there is increase in crime,divorces,drug abuse,,opioid deaths,covid deaths and other various social evils among American families. To bring back the greatness of this country again, they should adopt to their great grandparents method of building houses on a rectangular lots with straight roads.
The Japanese people rebuilt the city of Tokyo in the 1930s after the great earth quake in the old American way and are very successful. Many American corporations in the modern time are moving into bad luck buildings. These buildings are not rectangular but with zig-zag curves,round or odd shaped structures ‘notably with bad luck buildings as their headquarters include big companies such as GM,BELL SOUTH,NATIONS BANK ETC. In my opinion if they move their corporate headquarters buildings to their old rectangular shaped buildings they will once again prosper in their businesses.
I do not know why in the modern time they have abandoned the old prosperous perfect architecture of rectangular buildings. I strongly believe that rectangular with rectangular picket fences lots with rectangular houses on straight roads will bring prosperity and success to all the American families.
Take a look at Pentagon built in 1943 as American military headquarters– world war 2 ended in cold war,korean war,vietnam war,afghanistan war,iraq war and Libyan war are all failures. Move the military headquarters in a rectangular building to win all future wars.
The most good luck building in U.S.A is Independence hall in Philadelphia.
Read my website-vastutherory-mudrageda.com to find the features of all good luck buildings in this world.
U.S.A is not going to win any war along as the Pentagon is the military headquarters.
MOVE THE MILITARY HEAD QUARTERS TO WEST POINT-NEW YORK WHERE YOU WILL WIN ANY WAR WITH ANY COUNTRY IN THIS WORLD.
Surya Rao Mudragada.M.D.
Mr Mudragada. You are absolutely correct in my view. The ancient shastras of India speak of this. It has to do with unified field theory and quantum physics.
An irony here is that having escaped Uganda during Idi Amin’s frightening regime in Uganda, the son comes to America only to re-enact the naive actions of Amin’s personal doctor, Gerrigan, portrayed in the movie, The Last King of Scotland (in which the doctor was possibly based on Bob Astler, a former British soldier and reported close advisor to Amin).
Upon arrival to the US and other countries full of hope, maybe it is easy for people of any background or level of education to underestimate the effort involved in building and maintaining democracy, healing the legacy of discrimination and slavery, confronting the root causes of human-driven climate change, and ensuring good opportunities for all. This wishful thinking can be a recipe for aggrandizing aspiring dictators, and ultimately weakening democracy, in the US and in any country.
I see you managed to get all the political buzz words in your “piece” of biased writing.
Most indians from Asia are con artists and racists.
First of all it’s racist to call him a “Indian American” Do you call Bill Clinton a “british/scottish American”? Do you call Donald Trump a “German American” ? No! The intentions of the author of this article is to “otherise” Kash Patel. Also If you are indian and are “embarrassed” by him you are a idiot as being “indian” does mean there is some sort of solidarity, Kash is an individual. There are lot of Americans of Indian desent where I live. They are a very very successful immigrant community, like the Chinese are. They successful, don’t commit crimes, are fantastic neighbors, they pay their taxes. I’ve been to many divali celibrations, Indians I know are socially conservative as well. When it comes to success they align with the whites of this country no reason for Indians or other asians to align with the democratic party which only exists for black, latinos, Muslims, welfare queens purple haired feminists and other tax munching rif faf!
I am an Indian American, proud of my origin and do not mind calling me so. If he was born in East Africa, say, Kanya, he should be called Kanyian American. I think he smudges the good name of Indian Americans by supporting blindly someone who will go down in the history as a worse human being than Spiro Agnew. Most good Indians know that it is their solemn duty to elevate their family name so if he was raised with Indian values he would not create obstructions for Biden Administration to access intelligence reports for the good of the country that he calls himself citizen of.
I think Indian Americans will be very proud of this man in the coming weeks. I believe he is about to expose corruption in the US on a scale never before seen.
I’m Indian American. I agree with everything Steward and Jennifer are saying. The Dem party is not a party of the Indian Americans, they have done nothing but hurt our success in this country. With the Republican ideals, you can at least work hard, and get what you worked for, not get it handed down to others who didn’t for free. Dave, watch the Plot Against The President documentary. It’s eye opening and is what the mainstream media propaganda arm in this country will not show you. If you love this country, if you are a true Patriot, you should support Trump. And Kash Patel is an American hero for what he did to expose the Democrat/FBI corruption. I am immensely proud of him, and know I will only be prouder in the coming weeks. God bless him.
As a person who wasn’t born in this country, I have learned a most valuable lesson. Everything one reads has so many delusional information and all the information one needs is on the internet. Having said this, another important lesson is that one has to have an open mind and if one hasn’t then it’s easy to get caught up in misinformation. Let’s keep the titles where they belong. If one is born in the USA regardless of parents nationality, then you are American of Indian ethnicity and not Indian American as the true Indian Americans are the Native Indian Americans. I’m neither a Democratic, Republican, Independent or green party….I listen to the facts presented, take a little time to do fact checking and go from there. Trump could have been a good president, but he was born intitled and doesn’t know the meaning of ‘NO, LOSING’. I won’t make this a political issue, but since you mentioned his name, he could have prevented the spread of the covid-19 virus but as he said, he didn’t want to panic the populace of this country. So many lives could have been saved. I left to go to India last February for 1 month and he knew how the virus was spreading he made wearing a face mask political, where so many of his supporters still refuse to do. After arriving back from India, I tested positive for the virus which lasted 2 month. I became sick again and tested positive for a second time. All of this could have been prevented if Trump only could have acted like a leader. Now he will be known as a failure with two impeachments and possible federal crimes for his incitement of insurrection.
There is no such thing as an “Indian American”. You can only be American. You can be an American of Indian decent, not Indian American.
It’s delusional to assume all Americans of Indian decent think the same, and to what extent they have immersed in American culture, or traditional cultural practices of the equally diverse culture of India. Your sweeping generalization of anyone of Indian decent, and culture in general is ignorant, at best.
66% of the Indian American electorate voted for Biden over Trump. The GOP is the party of uneducated white trash welfare moochers. Get your stereotypes correct.
I totally agree with your message. I have many Indian friends and I was invited to a wedding last February in the state of Rajasthan. As usual, those Indians that I met were extremely polite and I was invited to so many homes in the village I visited. My stay in India was for 1 month and I learned so much, including what you said about honoring the family name. I was extremely impressed with the hospitality. Hopefully those who read your message will learn something about Indian culture.
I agree with you Dave re his smearing the good name of Indians. He must be an awful person. One point is that he was not born in Africa – he was born in New York.
Indian American should be required to pass the “caste system” and “mohdi” tests. If they are for either or both, they shouldn’t be allowed to serve any political office. Why? Because the caste system is simply pro-slavery disguised with sugar on top and modi is a fascist who hero-worships hitler and communist ideology. Do we really need either of these in our society? I think not.
Caste discrimination blah blah blah. Nobody knows what caste is in America. Despite that the caste system was less barbarous then slavery that existed in Christian countries or that still exists in many islamic countries.
People of Indian origin were expelled from Uganda in an ethnic cleansing program by Idi Amin. Many of these people were Patels from Gujarat. The Ugandan Patels are some of the most successful communities . In the UK there is Priti Patel and in the US there is Kash Patel. I myself was 6 years old when we left Uganda. After growing up in the US and having had lived here for 48 years I can tell you the that the democrats do not represent us. Some of them may have in the past but they have shifted into opposing our interests. Most notably in education, my children have to score a 160 points higher on the SAT exams to get into college than do whites. Thank you Demonrats. I dont think it is fair to put a quota on any race for inclusion into higher learning. We are lumped right in there with all Asians and this is a crime to push us down.
160 is a very specific number.
So you think it’s unfair because you’re smarter than all us other Asians who are out scoring whites. But you’re not bright enough to figure out republicans would rather just not have you be there at all, and the whole reason affirmative action (which primarily benefits white women) has been turned into a quota system that keeps many qualified Asians out is because republicans are threatened by non whites outperforming them. You’re definitely showing everyone how superior you are
The inexperienced person currently occupying the W.H. interests’ does not LIE in the the U.S. He has done NOTHING for America, ONLY for HIMSELF. His love of the almighty dollar is what drives him yet there are people like you that continue to believe him even tho the FACTS are staring you right in the face! I don’t think that it is “fair” that you name-call a particular party for any ‘inclusion’. Afterall, there are a few choice names that I could use myself when speaking of the republican so called party that became the “drumpf” party 4 yrs. ago. There are certain standards for COLLEGES accepting students, has ZERO to do with Democrats!
Why DO you keep capitalizing EVERY word?? IS it TO emphasize THAT particular WORD?? IT just GETS annoying and then NO one wants to KEEP reading your STUPID words!! OBVIOUSLY you like and WANTED Biden to WIN the election, so STOP trolling WEBSITES and go celebrate YOUR win. THE rest of us will WATCH and laugh as he SCREWS up this country for FOUR years.
You mean someone can screw the country more than Trump did. You need to get your head checked. NO LIVING BEING CAN SCREW UP MORE THAN TRUMP. He is the worst thing happened to this country. A sad pos.
Indians are also very racist. Its like the pot calling the kettle black. In recent years there has been reports of many Indians in the US indicted for bribery etc. Indians are not immune from crime if they feel that they cannot be caught or cannot manipulate the system,.
Having a political opinion and supporting it is ones personal choice. This person is as American and Biden or Trump or Obama. His policies might not be liked but that doesnot mean you shame his family and heritage. Grow up. This kind of hate rate creates Nazis. We are allowed to have different opinions and support the political parties. You can’t hate someone for that. The time to fight is gone let the healing begin
So in your mind, stating his professional and personal history is “shaming” him? It’s only shaming if you think he’s doing something wrong
I am not often one who connects spiritually with any India person. Why? They keep to themselves. I have read through and he is well rounded. What I have read, he probably knows what the true problems are. He supports Trump. I hope he can figure out how they stole the election.
The election WASN’T stolen! Get over yourselves!
I agree with the fact the election was as fair as it could ever be. Trump does not like to lose and feared losing so he started the false narrative that Biden lost. The Republicans latched on to it as it was a convenient lie.
I can’t believe the comments here about this man being a disgrace to his nation of India. People come to this nation to advance themselves and their way of life. Why are people begging and struggling to come into this nation? He has done well to fit into American Society unlike the filthy communists that came to rape, pillage and plunder this land and the people for their own financial reward. It is the disgusting filth of the Bolshevist Party, now called the Democrat Party who are a disgrace.
He is a disgrace to his Indian ancestors whose memory he is betraying by working for the US government. Being of Indian one should never work for a neocolonial imperial power which equals far far to much the British colonial occupiers who devastated, robbed an killed India and numerous Indians. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOxXZ3rNISc&t=3s
Bite my American ass Nestor
Dear hardcore Indian:
I hear your criticism. Your hardcore view has been hardened so much, my comment may fall on deaf ears. You do not realize the USA has been done like your country, only, worse. Leading to hope that you try to soften your heart. Your PTSD, like mine…can often overpower us and that is for protection from our fears.
You may judge with those glasses of PTSD on of what happened and who. Rather than view him a traitor, perhaps, view the man studied and is there for you and may be wiser for being here in the USA to understand, we were not the problem with Britain. But, perhaps, blackmail, bribes, threats and more make our finest men and women compromised into their satanic slavery, ( the 1%…only…and the rest do not have a clue and care a lot more about you and every country believing they are doing the right things. The USA workers are mere tired slaves and do not have the luxury you do to take the time to learn what happened to your country and our people. I assure you, I have endured far more than you and have learned to know…we are not enemies. I feel the hatred and disrespect from most of your citizens that are here. I did nothing wrong, yet, that is how I am treated by your people I have met in my country because your fears, gossip, spread ignorances…and skewed the truth. Thats a sad thing.
But, do you know the way I view it? Everyone has their time and place for learning things. I do not take it personally. I just view it as, “ut, they are either scared or they are born and bread to destroy as part of satanic slavery pain…and we appear like good targets because we appear weak. I assure you, putting up with abuse like that and tolerating it…is not weak. Its stronger than you with your fears.
You have a different religion than I because that was made to put a rift of discord between us. Oyr bibles were edited by King James. But, kings didnt do the editing…a satanist did, Francis Bacon. But, he did not have any clue he was satanist and no clue he edited to screw people. Human” kind” do NOT screw people or hurt them. We just aren’t made that way.
We may not be able to rely on our bibles completely, as the original bibles were all burned. But, if, we read it, we can find they did not change some of the most powerful wisdom from our Hallowed creator and it is this:
Ephesians 6:10-13 Put on all the armor from Our Hallowed Father in Heaven. As we do NOT fight against the human”kind” of flesh and blood. We fight against the evil unseen. The unseen principalities, the evil powerful satanic rulers of the physical world,the evil powerful satanic rulers of the unseen world and the many evil spirits that roam the earth for the ruin of human”kind”‘s souls.
Are things heating up? Guess what happens, after 2000 years…times up. Now come soul testing and you need to comprehend the actual truth about this world. You may see humans doing abominations, right? Guess what…its not them doing this to your people of India…the unseen are. So, let go of that hate and bitterness…this fact you did not have a clue about.
He is not a traitor to India. He is a human” kind” doing his champion best in a country used to blame everyone here. Human”kind” are NOT the problem. The unseen are and I cannot tell you much more than that…except to get yourself right and forgive…you may not know everything.
And for the record, I became friendly and close for a week with a pure Indian woman. She hated my guts and was passive aggressive toward me and even pretended to care. What she was doing was watching me talk to others. I am by far not perfect…but, I am not the kind she ever met. And because she was determined to find me just cunning usual evil, I took up her challenge and spoke for a week with her. It took me all of 30 minutes to break her to tears and she released forever what was bounding her up. She was no longer defensive, uptight stress ball ready to think life wasnt worth it…the unseen was riding her to exhaustive perfection and resentment. All I did was teach her the above…plus more. I am not anyone great or better to have helped her with a few words to help her let go. She stopped every negative and fixed herself. She began goals to bring her joy and lighthearted fun. This will help her so much heal and get more spiritually close with her husband and kids…which was her true dream. She approached everything like a hardcore business logical transaction and lost being her. She found it, I assure you…and I had the blessing to watch her and her husband fall more in love…as all he wanted was her happy…not perfect. Cuz we arent.
And unfortunately the unseen is far smarter and rides fear. What is fear? Hate, anger, bitterness, liss, grief, sadness…all negatives.
Tesla stated, ” If you want to know about the world, everything is frequncy (aka vibration, electric charge, energy measurement)…
Negative sucks you sick and dead.
Positive heals and prospers.
We all need to experience these for “knowledge and experiences”…tree of knowledge sin…we wanted to know what our creator knew. This is it.
Stay where you want in what you want for your outcome.
Kassia, USA citizen. But, universal human” kind”.
You are a ass jerk .you are an embarrassment to all the people who caries same last name as you do.Have some shame
Oh Poo Poo on you, 4 more years (at least) the plot has been exposed.
How’s that 4 more years coming along??
It isn’t coming along. The PEOPLE have spoken! The person currently in the W.H. just cannot comprehend anything. There was a REASON that he never read those Daily Briefing’s! He wouldn’t have been able to comprehend THEM either.
HERE we GO again WITH the CAPITAL words. IT must MAKE her FEEL big and TOUGH to CAPITALIZE the words FOR no reason AT all. PLEASE stop doing this BECAUSE then I CAN stop MAKING fun of you FOR it.
Lol no hes not an embarrassment to me. Disrespectful ass people like you are the ones who are an embarrassment to the rest of the Indian Americans.
Sheila, Put the crack pipe down and get to treatment. Your family loves you, but you’re embarrassing them. Get some help, and don’t speak of what you don’t know.
People shamed by a last name? Sensitive much? I hope you don’t pay your therapist much. Maybe all “shelia’s” should be ashamed!
I like it that Kash Patel pisses off so many Democrats.
My last name is also Patel and i am proud of Kashyp Patel .What he achieved in his life.
Patels and other Indian better get smart and be Replicant too.
Yess! Same here!
What he does AFTER this gig will be interesting. I wouldn’t say that he angers ANY Democrats, but time will tell AFTER he leaves in 47 days and the NEW administration will have had a chance to see what was done by the current so-called administration. Btw: Biden 2020, just as I predicted.
HERE this COMMENT is six MINUTES after your LAST comment, yet YOU and I are THE only ones COMMENTING for about a MONTH now. OK, lets JUST see HOW long WE can DO this!
Kash Patel is no patriot. He is an embarrassment to India. He is the latest of Indian men who have forgotten what it means to be honorable, graceful and humble. His association with Nunes is a disgrace. And his sycophantic impulses with Trump are alarming. I am sure his mother is embarrassed.
Educate yourself… your venal vomit had no merit… you’re the one that should worry about their mother… I’m being nice… asshole.
Seems to me he’s not a citizen of India!
Great American seems to be the Right answe!
Mr. Kash Patel-GENIUS! And in his 30’s-YES, he’s most definitely what AMERICA “should” stand for, but the mentally ill like AOC, Maxine Waters, Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, Brazile, Pelosi, Harris, Ilhan, Tlaib (or whatever the hell her name is), Killary, Obozo & spouses, Jarrett, Rice, Podesta, Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Weiner & Huma, Biden, Rosenstein & crime wife Barsoomian, “Poca” Warren, Chinese spy Feinstein & the rest of the deranged NAZI party, ad nauseum Corey Booker, Jones & 99.5% of the “sit on their fat asses, do-nothing” MSM, etc, etc, truly have the brains/mentality of 3rd graders. Trying to dumb-down Americans to your level, esp. women? Every one of you & the rest of the DNC, er Communist Nat’l Conv. Has done nothing but take this country back 200 yrs, but in a stupid, slum-sort of manner. AND u get paid to torment us with your constant BS! I suppose you were expecting Mr. Patel to be pumping gas, instead-WHO ARE the actual RACISTS here, Commies? I am so proud that this great man grew up in my town of Garden City. Too bad NY has gone to the dogs with the disgusting Cuomos & Diblasio POS. Go to your cellars & shut the F up!
I’m curious as to why YOUR comment is not “awaiting moderation” by this site and was allowed to remain.
I’m CURIOUS why HIS comment is AWAITING moderation also KAY!! ONCE again, IM mostly curious WHY you feel the NEED to capitalize WORDS for NO reason AT all? SO is EVERYONE else.
God bless you and I agree 100%.
He’s not representing India. He’s an American and clearly knows what he stands for. I’m not related to him, and I dont even know him, but I for one am proud to share the same last name as him… also you’re the embarrassment
Any doubt about Kash Patel? Watch “The Plot Against the President” via Prime. KASH IS A TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOT. Shame on Politico.
Okie Sandra whatever you say – you got to polish your tinfoil hat though!
Okie Sandra, if you say so, but first polish your tinfoil hat!
Sandra….how big are your titties baby
The plot … was awesome… the media just goes for the bate…it’s like the one producer that decides what to run must be getting paid to create a narrative and we can tell is that the people paying them didn’t like some vipers surrounding Obama. And I like Obama but his people are doing the same thing the right use to do and use disinformation or take people out…but that plot against the president I would of been caught in the narrative too. It’s like that show allows you to pull out of the matrix and into the land of the real where agents can’t chase you
Just watched “The Plot Against The President” on Prime. Amazing. Kashmir Patel is a hero, as is Devin Nunez.
Kash Patel is a true Patriot!
True Patriot ? For Which Country ?
All the nations that hold you have to meet a reasonable threshold before your allowed to suppeona a or charge people of a crime
Your report for Nunes and your choice of working with President Trump takes great courage. Congratulations. You are a patriot.
Very strange definition of a patriot. Patriots defend the USA, not a mentally deficient, arrogant president who is King of the Swamp, what with taking money from China and benefitting his unqualified family members so they can suck America dry. Shame on you.
That is EXACTLY what he has done yet those with eyes cannot see. Fox only TOLD them what they WANTED them to hear so they really are oblivious. And trump is continuing his cult persona when he asks for money from his followers to help pay down his $400 MILLION DOLLAR DEBT that is coming due in January, and they oblige THINKING it is for something else apparently. It will all come out after he leaves office, when he no longer has his BULLY pulpit to claim fake news!
STILL at it huh KAY? I have TO admit though, IT does seem to TAKE a WHOLE lot longer WHEN i have to alternate from lower CASE letters to UPPER case letters.
“Kash” me ou’side. How ’bout dat…
Thank you Kash Patel for doing what you have you done for our President…You are great.Love the movie you were in…How About That…
Which movie, Harold and Kumar goto White Castle???
