The chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) has made a heck of an allegation.
McCaul has reported that a top Biden administration official has had their security clearance suspended and hinted that person may have committed treason.
From the Dailywire:
The FBI is reportedly investigating Rob Malley, President Joe Biden’s special envoy to Iran, over alleged mishandling of classified documents.
Semafor reported earlier this month that information about how the investigation has escalated “suggests that investigators are considering something beyond the lowest-level mishandling of documents.”
During an appearance on “Face The Nation” McCaul to host, Margaret Brennan that he believes the official gave Iran nuclear secrets.
“You’ve been vocal in asking the administration for a briefing on the presidential envoy Rob Malley and why he is suspended,” she said. “Do you have any promise that you’ll get it? That you’ll get information?”
“Well, we sent- I sent a letter. We were rebuked,” he responded. “We have been given no answer about his status. Remember, this is a top negotiator to Iran on one of the most, you know, nuclear weapons programs, highest classified secrets.”
“So we are giving a deadline of July 25th to have, you know, the diplomatic security and management secretary come in and brief us in a classified space,” he continued. “Margaret, I can’t tell you how important this is because if he somehow- you know, worst case scenario, transferred intelligence and secrets to our foreign adversaries.”
Brennan aded that there was “no proof” at this time.
McCaul countered by stating, “There’s no proof of that, but if he did, that would be treason in my view.”
GOP @RepMcCaul has sent a letter urging the Biden admin. to provide a briefing on the investigation of Special Envoy to Iran Rob Malley by July 25th, but says, “We have been given no answer about his status.”
