Presumptive Democratic hopeful Joe Biden has chosen Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA, as his running mate, his campaign announced on Tuesday amid a flurry of speculation that would either be her or former Obama national security advisor Susan Rice.

Harris, 55, who was also a 2020 Democratic candidate, would be the nation’s first female, first Black, Asian vice president if elected.

Many prominent African-American lawmakers and community leaders have criticized her extensive prosecutions in the black community, failure to advocate against social injustice and long lengthy prison sentences for minor crimes, like truancy.

Here’s just one of many opinion editorial here from USA Today

“To the chagrin of her supporters, close examinations of the woman who took pride in the title of California’s “top cop” by writers like Lara Bazelon, C.J. Ciaramella, Sarah Lustbader, Vaidya Gullapalli, Joe Garafoli and others revealed that Harris had been nothing close to the civil rights warrior she claimed to be. In actuality, she had spent much of her professional life prosecuting and persecuting poor people and minorities.

Bazelon wrote that Harris “opposed or stayed silent” on multiple aspects of criminal justice reform. She “laughed” when a reporter asked her about decriminalizing marijuana before reversing course years later as public opinion changed. She opposed a bill requiring her office to investigate police shootings. She also opposed statewide police officer body-camera regulations.” 

Former NFL star Burgess Owens, who is running as a Republican in Utah for Congress, tweeted Tuesday that “Joe Biden actually finds a running mate who’s done more damage to minorities than himself.”

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

Published

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.
