House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Peter King (R-NY) confirmed elements of Patrick Poole’s work earlier this month at Pajamas Media on the Department of Justice scuttling terror finance prosecutions against prominent Islamic leaders, including CAIR co-founder Omar Ahmad, for political reasons.
King fired off a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder demanding answers why the DOJ dropped the terror finance prosecutions. He requested that the information be provided by April 25th. However, King indicated that he believed that Holder wouldn’t comply with the information request and that the House Homeland Security Committee might have to resort to subpoenas to obtain the information. King also indicated that other congressional committees, including the House Judiciary Committee, are looking into the matter.
