Ever since the Washington Post released information about the canceled ICE raids last week, including details of the 10 cities that would be raided and the day of the raid, speculation has been rampant that someone leaked the information to prevent them from happening. Considering the small number of people with the information that was leaked, five current and former White House officials pointed their fingers at acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan.
McAleenan has allegedly been opposed to ICE raids for several months, according to the anonymous sources. But he went on Fox News with Laura Ingraham to set the record straight.
McAleenan was accused last week of leaking plans for raids scheduled by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), a unit of the DHS, after supposedly expressing fierce opposition to the plan and allegedly ordering top officials to “stand down” on the operation.
The source also said Homeland Security officials had been planning the raids since April and that McAleenan had been opposed to the plans from the start.
McAleenan also denied that anyone in his office leaked the information after host Laura Ingraham pressed further, saying that as the operation date nears “you have to push information out into the field.”
“So tonight you’re saying these rumors are wrong false and you did not do that?” Ingraham asked.
“Absolutely not,” McAleenan responded.
I tend to believe him. At this point, we have no reason to doubt his word other than anonymous sources. And it may be compelling that he donated to Democrats in the past, but if he says he didn’t leak, we should accept it. For now.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
