A disturbing claim made by Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) about the Obama administration strong-arming a former senator who wanted to release the 28 pages.
The Hill reported on 5/9 that Rep. Brad Sherman is criticizing the Obama Administration for strong-arming a former senator who vehemently pushed for the release of the 28 secret pages of the 9/11 report that implicate a Saudi connection to the attacks.
Sherman claimed that the FBI detained both Rep. Gwen Graham (D-FLA.) and her father Bob Graham (D-Fla.) in 2011 at Dulles International Airport in the suburbs of Washington.
The agents reportedly threatened and intimidated the Grahams in order to get them to quit pushing for the declassification of the secret 28 pages.
The Tampa Bay Times wrote about the incident in detail in August 2015 here.
“The FBI took a former senator, a former governor, grabbed him in an airport, hustled him into a room with armed force to try and intimidate him into taking different positions on issues of public policy and important national policy and the fact that he wasn’t intimidated because he was calm doesn’t show that they weren’t trying to intimidate him,” Sherman said in a recent interview with Hill journalist Molly Hooper.
Despite making campaign promises directly to the 9/11 victim’s families, President Obama has ignored requests to release the secretive pages despite them proving that a supposed U.S. ally funded the terrorists who took the lives of 3,000+ Americans in 2001.
As a result. Obama is defending the dysfunctional relationship with the Saudi Kingdom to continue America’s proxy war with Russia as opposed to providing justice for the families of those who lost loved ones on arguably the worst day in U.S. history.
