I am writing to you as a constituent and member of ACT! for America, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing national security grassroots organization. ACT! for America currently has over 240,000 members across the nation, many within our district and throughout the state.
As you may be aware, recently five Members of Congress who have seats on the House Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Judiciary Committee, sent letters to the Inspectors General of the Departments of State, Justice, Homeland Security, Defense and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. In those letters they asked for investigations into the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood within these agencies.
It is unfortunate that, as usual, politics has gotten in the way of our national security.
Evidence introduced in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation Trial — the largest terror finance trial in the United States — entitled the “Explanatory Memorandum,” clearly cites the Muslim Brotherhood’s intentions for our nation. Specifically, this Muslim Brotherhood document noted that the Brotherhood “must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.” How much clearer can they get?
I stand firmly behind the Members of Congress who have called for an investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood’s possible influences in these critical government agencies. Since when is investigating a potential threat to our nation something for which one has to be ashamed?
As my U.S. Representative, you have taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I ask that you join me in supporting the Members of Congress who have called for these important investigations.
I will be watching your actions on this issue and look forward to your response on this matter.
