Gohmert speculated that AG Eric Holder read bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights to “shut him up” and undermine the investigation into the brothers’ possible ties to terror groups. “It’s clear to everyone that Islam is at war against us,” and suggested that Obama has allowed Muslim Brotherhood members to undermine our counter-terrorism policies.
Salon Last year, Gohmert joined a small group of conservative lawmakers led by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to demand that the Inspectors General of four government agencies investigate “deep penetration” by the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. government. The Obama administration condemned the lawmakers for using false and inaccurate information to smear “anyone that happens to be Muslim.”
On Friday, Gohmert took the the House floor to suggest that Obama’s “political correctness” prevented the FBI from asking deceased Boston marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev about Islam during their 2011 interview.
