For John, BLUF: So, a little hiatus and a new vetting process might be of value. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is old news (8 May 2017), but pertinent. The source is National Review and the author is Mr Mark Krikorian.
Here is a key paragraph:
Comey’s testimony last week revealed the consequences of this lack of information. While most of the time he was asked about Hillary’s e-mails and Russia, Russia, Russia, Sen. Tillis asked about terrorism investigations. (See the transcript of the Wednesday, May 3, hearing here.) Comey responded that out of 2,000-plus “violent extremist investigations … about 300 of them are people who came to the United States as refugees.”Well, not a yuge number, but still a sizable number.
And, the SCOTUS move on the Trump Executive Order on a travel ban, announced yesterday and already gone from Memeorandum, seems to reflect the idea that there is a problem out there and the President has the authority to deal with it.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
