Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez turned into a bumbling mess this week after a FBI official absolutely demolished her on “domestic terrorism.”
During a hearing on Tuesday before the House Oversight Committee, FBI Assistant Director for Counter-terrorism Michael McGarrity was testifying about white supremacy in the United States.
When it was Ocasio-Cortez’s turn to ask him questions, it became more than obvious that she was no match for McGarrity.
Ocasio-Cortez began by asking McGarrity why the deadly Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, shooting in Charleston, South Carolina and the likewise deadly Tree of Life Synagogue attack in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania were not treated as domestic terrorist incidents.
McGarrity responded by noting that she was incorrect.
So you’re using the word charge? So as I’ve said before there’s no domestic terrorism charge like 18 USC, 23 39 A, B, C, D for a foreign terrorist organization. So, what we do, both on a international terrorism side with a homegrown violent extremist and domestic terrorism, we’ll use any tool in the tool kit to arrest them. Hopefully, left of attack, should it be after, likely that hate crime statute will come to play through the civil rights division as a charge because its a good federal charge for us…in fact, on the record it’s stated it is domestic terrorism.
