Biden and Trump Nearly Tied In Latest Rasmussen Poll

Published

President Donald Trump and Former Vice President Joe Biden are growing closer in polling with Trump gaining a point from Rasmussen’s last poll seven days ago. The July 22 data shows Biden with 47% of support from likely voters to 45% for President Trump.

The weekly Wednesday polling has shown an increase in Trump’s support — he held just 40% to Biden’s 50% when Rasmussen first began the polls.

In terms of party support, the numbers show Trump has 81% of support from Republican voters while Biden has 74% of Democrats pledged support.

For independents, Biden leads with 47% to Trump’s 36%, but “17% of these voters like another candidate or are undecided,” according to the poll.

Other polls have shown Biden dominating Trump but this report from Rasmussen puts those numbers into question, especially considering the polls that were widely-shared in November 2016 and turned out to be incorrect.

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

United States Congress

The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.

The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.

“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.

The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.

Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
