Kirstjen Nielsen Makes Return To Trump Administration

Published

on

Former secretary for the Department of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, who stepped down from her post back in April, is coming back to the Trump administration in what is being called a “minor role.”

Officials at the White House announced Tuesday evening that Nielsen would be coming back as a member of the National Infrastructure Advisory Council, which is an entity of the Department of Homeland Security. The board features 30 members from the private sector who help advise the White House on the best actionable steps they can take to reduce physical and cyberthreats to America’s most critical infrastructure.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Nielsen’s appointment comes six months after she stepped down from her post atop the 240,000-member department. She was secretary for 16 months.

Nielsen, a lawyer, left the private sector for the Transportation Security Administration shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Her time at the TSA was her only experience in homeland security before serving in 2017 as the assistant to her predecessor, former Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

She then went to the White House and worked as then-chief of staff Kelly’s principal deputy. Trump nominated Nielsen in October 2017 to lead the Department of Homeland Security, and she was confirmed in a 62-37 vote.

As of the time of this writing there’s no information available that reveals what Nielsen has been doing with her time since April or where she might have been employed during the last few months.

Nielsen’s departure from the Department of Homeland Security came at a time when the president was growing more frustrated with spikes in the number of migrant families traveling to the United States-Mexico border.

Trump proposed closing down the border at the time to help deal with the increasing influx of illegals. An investigation carried out by the Washington Examiner revealed that closing down the border would’ve interrupted $300 billion worth of annual trade processed by Customs and Border Protection at ports of entry along the southern border.

Man Arrested for Rape Is Let Out of Jail Over COVID-19, Then Murders the Woman He Raped

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
