Texas Republican Rep Louie Gohmert said the FBI's refusal to label James Hodgkinson's attempted mass assassination of Republican congressman as terrorism indicates "there are too many officials from the previous administration in the DOJ," The Daily Caller reports.
From The Daily Caller:
Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert unloaded on the media and Obama-era holdovers at the Department of Justice on Wednesday after the FBI announced that it was treating last week’s attempted mass assassination of Republican congressmen as "assault" rather than terrorism.Here's some highlights of the FBI's comical press conference:
From the AP:
At a news conference on Wednesday, FBI officials gave an overview of the evidence they’ve gathered on Hodgkinson. They said he acted alone and had no connections to terror groups. But they said they had not yet clarified who, if anyone, he planned to target, or why, beyond his animus toward President Donald Trump and the Republicans he felt were ruining the country. It wasn’t even clear whether he had prior plans to attack the baseball practice or whether he just happened upon it the morning of June 14, said Tim Slater, who leads the criminal division of the FBI’s Washington field office.The FBI also said his Facebook posts "appear to be First Amendment protected rights," whatever the hell that means. Did anyone question Hogkinson's right to make posts on the internet?
Despite photographing the baseball field, carrying what many suspected was a "hit list" filled entirely with members of the House Freedom Caucus (which included Congressman Mo Brooks who was at the field when shooting broke out), and asking whether or not it was Republican congressman on the field playing just minutes before carrying out his shooting, "he had no target in mind."
This is the same FBI which says we should trust the discredited cyber-security firm CrowdStrike that "Russians" "hacked" the Democratic Nation Committee servers.
