This is the guy who was exposed by Axios for having "close ties" to Chinese spy, Christine Fang. But maybe everyone just forgot. That was a WHOLE month ago after all.
You'd think that would make him a bit of a security risk. And actually that's what over a dozen Republicans thought when they called for him to be booted from the House Intelligence Committee. Since... you know...
He was compromised by a FOREIGN SPY!
Some even want him entirely stripped of his security clearance.
But Dems gonna Dem, and it seems the best way to succeed in that party is by failing repeatedly and very publicly.
Here are his goofy tweets announcing it:
I'm honored and excited to rejoin active service on @HomelandDems, where I plan to focus on highlighting and finding solutions to the scourge of white nationalist extremism.My committee memberships—along with my experience as a prosecutor and as the son and brother of law enforcement officers—will give me a unique opportunity to delve into one of America's most serious national security threats.
I don't even want to get into this line, "I plan to focus on highlighting and finding solutions to the scourge of white nationalist extremism."
If this guy had been a Republican he'd have been forced to retire in shame. And if the whole CONNECTED TO A CHINESE SPY thing isn't enough to disqualify him in your mind, remember that he also toots in public.
