Democratic 2020 presidential contenders Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D., Minn.), and Tom Steyer all penned letters of support. Prominent Democrats such as Omar, Reps. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich), and Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) also lent their support to CAIR’s agenda, according to materials reviewed by the Free Beacon.
The Dems include the usual hard lefties, but there’s also Senator Doug Jones, whom, you would think, would avoid this mess.
Tom Steyer decided to wade in.
As did Governor Northam, who’s gone too long between scandals.
Senator Krysten Sinema expressed her support for CAIR.
Unsurprising considering the situation in Arizona.
And then there are the usual uglies, like Rep. Hank Johnson, Rep. Ro Khanna, Rep. Marcy Kaptur, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Chuy Garcia, and Rep. Betty McCollum.
That’s significant considering CAIR’s unindicted co-conspirator status.
Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich sent the letter last month to four members of Congress who asked for details last fall on how CAIR was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the terror-finance trial against the Holy Land Foundation and its former officials.
He included trial transcripts and exhibits “which demonstrated a relationship among CAIR, individual CAIR founders, and the Palestine Committee. Evidence was also introduced that demonstrated a relationship between the Palestine Committee and HAMAS, which was designated as a terrorist organization in 1995.”
Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, and trial exhibits show the Brotherhood created the Palestine Committee. CAIR officials adamantly deny any involvement with either Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood. The Weich letter, however, shows that the Department of Justice has not wavered in its conclusion that the internal records it possesses prove a connection.
This is what 120+ Democrats support.
