Iraqi Terrorist "Insurgent" Got Admitted Into US Under Refugee Program's "Extreme Vetting;" Lawmakers Accuse Obama Administration of Blocking His Prosecution In Order To Avoid Substantiation of Trump's Critique of the Program

Explosive charges.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has asked Attorney General Jeff Sessions to find out why the terror suspect's pending arrest was allegedly spiked just over a week before the election. Trump had run on a tough-on-terror platform and had been critical of President Obama’s refugee policy.

"When [Joint Terrorism Task Force] and the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Western District of Texas sought to prosecute this refugee, the local law enforcement and prosecutors allegedly' 'met resistance' from officials within the National Security Division's Counter Terrorism section in Washington DC," Committee chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said in a March 6 letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"The 'resistance' allegedly occurred a few weeks before the 2016 election, and local authorities believed the lack of progress in this case was handled inadequately," Johnson wrote.

The suspect is an Iraqi man who had entered the U.S. under a false name. His real name was not released.

Fox News has learned the JTTF confirmed through U.S. Special Forces who encountered the suspect during operations that he claimed to have participated in attacks against American troops as an insurgent.

Some folks are gonna wind up with a long stretch in federal prison, but it might not be the people the leftist media is hoping for.

Oh and meanwhile, there was an axe attack at a train station in Germany, five wounded, one arrested, Backlash Feared.

"We were at the track waiting for the train. The train arrived, and suddenly someone jumped out with an ax and struck at the people," the national newspaper Bild quoted a witness as saying. "There was blood everywhere. I have never experienced anything like that."

And this guy Tim Pool (who I never heard of before) visited Sweden to evaluate Trump's comment about Sweden "having problems they never imagined" from immigrants. He rates the claim mostly true. Seems credible, worth a watch.
