Yes! House Homeland Security Chair Bennie Thompson (D) Calls Lyin' Kirstjen Nielsen On the Carpet.

1 min read

The new Democratic head of the House Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss., is tired of this administrations lies and the lack of oversight afforded DHS by the last Congress and called DHS Head Nielsen to the carpet yesterday with a scathing come to Bejesus letter:




Key passage: (Bolds mine)

“Your border security presentation submitted to Congress today is yet another example of the misinformation and outright lies the Trump Administration has used to make the case for the President’s boondoggle border wall.”

Thompson also admonished Nielsen to get all her records together ASAP, including those relating to 7-year-old Jakelin Caal Maquin and 8-year-old Felipe Gómez Alonzo, who died in border patrol custody, and have them to his committee by Jan. 18th.

There’s a new sheriff in town, Nielsen and this one ain’t wearing a skull and crossbones on his hat!
