Potato Biden* and his radical-Left DNI Avril Haines apparently condone (encourage?) the CIA, DIA, and NSA to spy on US citizens.
That is a big no-no, although Bush the Dumber was suspected of same, just like Obama the Race-Card player. The report mentioned here was issued March 1.
...the Report’s acknowledgement that it was compiled by institutions including “the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with contributions from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)” has alarmed numerous members of the House Intelligence Committee. On Thursday, all ten minority members of that Committee wrote a previously unreported letter to Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines “to raise serious concerns about the production of this document by the Intelligence Community (IC) and to seek clarification of the facts related to its production.”...
So what did that report say?
... Its primary point is this: “The IC [intelligence community] assesses that domestic violent extremists (DVEs) who are motivated by a range of ideologies and galvanized by recent political and societal events in the United States pose an elevated threat to the Homeland in 2021.” While asserting that “the most lethal” of these threats is posed by “racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists (RMVEs) and militia violent extremists (MVEs),” it makes clear that its target encompasses a wide range of groups from the left (Antifa, animal rights and environmental activists, pro-choice extremists and anarchists: “those who oppose capitalism and all forms of globalization”) to the right (sovereign citizen movements, anti-abortion activists and those deemed motivated by racial or ethnic hatreds)....
".....deemed to be motivated by racial or ethnic hatreds....."
DEEMED? Who does the 'deeming'? (Can I do that? Looks like a good way to eliminate someone I don't like...)
The Republicans are also concerned with The Potato* Administration's game-playing with the level of authority behind this report.
...the DHS Report was not subject to the standard rigors of an intelligence community finding, yet continually makes sweeping claims that it prefixes with the authoritative phrase “the IC assesses.” The Committee members found this “to be misleading,” adding: we “urge you to clarify which elements in the IC concurred with this judgement and the intelligence basis, if any, for that concurrence.” In other words, Haines claims that these dubious assertions about various threats faced by Americans are the findings of the intelligence community when that is not true: just like the originally false claim widely spread by the media that “all seventeen intelligence agencies” endorsed the 2016 election findings about Russian interference when, in fact, it was only a few which had done so. Haines’ claims have support only from a few agencies as well....
The collection of misfits, radical Lefties, and third-rate twits running Potato's* administration should have studied Bill Clinton a lot more.
Clinton knew how to lie artfully. These idiots? Not even close.
