Is Democrat Leland Yee a Full-Blown Gun-Runner for Russians and Islamic Terrorists? (Updated)
These rebel groups:
Including Muslim terrorists: “According to Senator Yee, Mindanao was largely population by Muslim rebel groups who were fighting the federal government. Yee continued by saying the Muslim rebels had no problem ‘kidnapping individuals, killing individuals, and extorting them for ransom.'"
And yet he wanted to arm them, while disarming law-abiding Americans.
In specific the Moro Islamic Liberation Front: “[The agent] asked about the major Muslim organizations in the Mindanao region of the Philippines. Senator Yee responded by saying ‘M.I.L.F.’”
Yee apparently wasn't making up his arms dealer. It's a real person. A real Russian person.
And, Russian arms dealers: “According to Senator Yee, the arms dealer source the weapons from Russia.”
Well. Surely having an elected official working on illegal deals with Russian arms dealers to arm Islamic terrorists trying to overthrow a government allied to the United States at a time when Russia is causing global -- sorry, regional -- problems, isn't a big problem...?
And neither is this?
Yee yearned for a different life: “Senator Yee stated he was unhappy with his life and said, 'There is a part of me that wants to be like you [...] Just be a free agent out there.' Senator Yee told [the agent] that he wanted to hide out in the Philippines.”
This is extraordinary.
It's at this point in the story that the media will go out of their way not to ask any other Democrats what they knew about Yee and whether they have a culture of corruption.
