Biden's DOJ Hires Anti-Trump CNN Analyst To 'National Security' Position


An anti-Trump activist and CNN analyst who critics claim was a key proponent of the “Russiagate” hoax has been hired by the Department of Justice as senior counsel for the National Security Division.

CNN analyst Susan Hennessey announced Monday, “I’m very honored to be joining the extraordinary team at the Department of Justice in the National Security Division. Thank you for all the kind words. (And a huge thanks to the folks at WH PPO, agency WH liaisons and HRs who are working night and day to staff this government.)”

Critics were quick to point out Hennessey’s track record of being associated with dubious conspiracy theories such as the Steele dossier and “Russiagate.”

“Hennessey is a perfect exhibit for the authoritarian ethos of the liberal #Resistance since 2016,” journalist Glenn Greenwald noted. “That an ex *NSA lawyer* and Brookings security state loyalist became a beloved liberal pundit, now catapulting to DOJ’s national security unit, says it all:”

Biden’s new choice for a top national security position at DOJ, ex-NSA lawyer @Susan_Hennessey is such a dishonest loyalist to the national security state that even one of her fellow Russiagate conspiracists has accused her of being a deceitful propagandist for the NSA & FBI,” Greenwald added.

Almost 2,000 tweets by Hennessey have been deleted from her account as of Monday, including several that were widely criticized and ratioed during the Trump administration.

The Department of Justice under President Joe Biden has quickly acquired a reputation for intense partisanship and political prosecution of Democrat party critics.

The identity of the police officer who gunned down unarmed election integrity protester Ashli Babbitt on January 6 is still being vigorously concealed by the Department of Justice, even as legal experts file Freedom of Information Act requests:

Successful trial attorney Norm Pattis, described by the media as being “brilliant and audacious” and a “legal top gun”, has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain the name of the Capitol Hill police officer who shot and killed Ashli Babbitt during the civil unrest that transpired in Washington, D.C. on January 6. National File has obtained a copy of the FOIA request.

The Biden administration’s Department of Justice is refusing to name or charge the police officer responsible for Babbitt’s death, despite admitting that the officer had no reasonable cause to discharge his firearm against her. The Babbitt family attorney has pledged to continue fighting on behalf of his clients, and suggested civil litigation against the federal government and the unnamed police officer may be impending.
