Top DHS (Israeli?) Thugs Illegally Appointed, Federal Intervention in Cities Run by Fakes

CBS News: A federal government watchdog said Friday that Chad Wolf and Ken Cuccinelli, the highest-ranking officials at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), were invalidly appointed to their current positions at the department charged with implementing President Trump’s immigration agenda.

In a decision published Friday, the Government Accountability Office, Congress’ investigative arm, found that former acting DHS secretary, Kevin McAleenan, did not have the authority to change the line of succession prior to his resignation last fall, making Wolf ineligible to succeed him. Consequently, the watchdog added, Wolf also lacked authority to alter the order of succession that made Cuccinelli acting deputy secretary.

Oops

When Kirstjen Nielsen, the last Senate-confirmed secretary of the department, resigned in April 2019, the next in line should have been Christopher Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). However, McAleenan, who was then the commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), was appointed.

“As such, Mr. McAleenan did not have the authority to amend the Secretary’s existing designation,” the Government Accountability Office wrote in its decision Friday. “Accordingly, Messrs. Wolf and Cuccinelli were named to their respective positions of Acting Secretary and Senior Official Performing the Duties of Deputy Secretary by reference to an invalid order of succession.”

Congress’ watchdog said it did not examine the legality of subsequent actions and policies that followed the invalid appointments. That question was referred to the Homeland Security Inspector General.

DHS said it disagreed with Friday’s legal opinion, calling it a “baseless report.” White House officials did not respond to requests to comment.

  1. It is my take, that this constituted an illegal attack on US citizens in violation of the constitution, and became evidence, along with admins response (mitigation prevention and malicious activity which indicates knowingly spreading) to covid, and admins actions involving the Lafayette park incident, that the CIC had fulfilled the requirements to be considered a threat to the US, and is in my opinion, no longer considered CIC of US military. It is a bizarre situation when the CIC is considered a threat, but the militaries top priority is the people , not any individual person. This also, is my theory of why Milley visited Israel, followed by an act of desperation to complete any illegal ops, before Trump leaves. It’s anyones guess as to what protocol would be in this scenario, but informing the public, would most likely Not be the first choice. And again, I would refer to the art of subtlety contained in Milley’s speech to the graduates of the NDU. Worth a listen and analysis.
