Vanita Gupta, President Joe Biden’s nominee for associate attorney general, was confronted on Tuesday morning by Republican senators over past comments she had made about the GOP.
Grassley Confronts Gupta
Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said that while Gupta has done some “admirable” things in her past, previous comments she’s made about Republicans makes him wary about giving her a critical Justice Department position.
“Her Twitter feed has painted Republicans with a broad brush, describing our national convention last year as three nights of quote-unquote ‘racism, xenophobia, and outrageous lies,’” Grassley said during his opening remarks, according to Fox News.
“How many of our colleagues in this room were there? Of course Ms. Gupta has in fact launched Twitter attacks on some of them directly,” he added. “Will that kind of partisan political advocacy affect her legal advocacy in her role where she represents all Americans?”
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
