We have all been very wary of the FBI and their shenanigans as of late. Seeing their Director, James Comey, get himself caught in webs of lies in the past few years while “investigating” Hillary Clinton and others has proven to America that neither he nor his agency can be trusted.
What has added more fuel to the fire is that now we are hearing about an ISIS attack that was executed here on US soil. The incident occurred in Dallas in 2015, and one unarmed security guard was injured.
Now, top GOP Senator Ron Johnson, who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Committee, has now slapped the FBI with an investigation, believing that this could have very well been prevented. Why? Because Senator Johnson believes that the FBI knew about this ISIS-endorsed attack before it happened, and still allowed the events to fall as they did.
From Allen B. West:
As reported by Fox News, “A powerful U.S. senator has launched an investigation into whether the FBI knew about a planned attack by ISIS-inspired terrorists at an anti-Muslim cartoon show in the Dallas area and did nothing to stop it — and also misled the lawmaker about circumstances of the 2015 attack.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., chairman of the Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, said he learned from a recent national media report that the FBI was tailing the two terrorists, Elton Simpson, 31, and Nadir Soofi, 34, and an agent was just steps away when the pair jumped from their car and began shooting at police guarding the “Draw Mohammad” event at the Curtis Culwell Center in the Dallas suburb of Garland, Texas.
The terrorists, who pledged allegiance to ISIS, struck Bruce Joiner, an unarmed security guard, in the leg, before snipers killed them. The attack was significant because it was the first that the Islamic State took credit for on U.S. soil.
Soofi and Simpson had been in touch with an ISIS recruiter in Somalia. “It is concerning that when I wrote to the FBI and Department of Justice, they never told me about the fact that they had some FBI asset, whether it was an agent or informant, tailing Soofi and Simpson,” said Johnson. “Why didn’t they intervene? As a member of the Senate oversight committee, I think these agencies should be honest when we actually ask them the questions. But it begs the question, what was the FBI doing in Garland, and why wasn’t the agency direct with me when we first started writing letters about this back in 2015?”
Johnson is referring to two individuals who had prior contact with the shooters. One was a paid FBI informant, the other an FBI undercover agent. Ten days before the attack Simpson hooked up with an FBI undercover informant via the internet, according to an FBI affidavit filed by Agent Shawn Scott Hare in August 2016. The affidavit was filed in a case against Erick Jamal Hendricks, a North Carolina man charged with conspiring to provide material support to the Islamic State. The affidavit reveals the FBI was aware on May 2, the day before the attack, that Soofi and Simpson were headed to Garland to attend the Draw the Prophet Muhammad Event. “
Hopefully through this Senate committee investigation, we are able to determine whether or not our FBI is truly out there to protect Americans as they should, or whether their intentions are to actually assist those who plan evil against America. And from there, we can hold those accountable who allowed for the injury of an American unarmed security guard.
