ICE/DHS Agent Taylor Johnson began looking around the investigation of corruption within the DHS and ICE this past February. Johnson’s entire chain of command was appointed by President Obama, thus they felt they could do and get away with whatever they wanted. They believed they were above the law. As a result, they acted like it.
Last year Johnson gave testimony to the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs where she said she was stripped of her gun and badge and given no explanation after she had discovered internal signs of abuse and fraud. After, she was offered $100,000 to sign a non disclosure agreement that would force her to quietly go away without reporting anything that was going on.
Turns out, the crimes included accepting kick backs and snuggling up to organized crime syndicates. In 2013 she said she had,
“discovered that EB-5 applicants from China, Russia, Pakistan and Malaysia had been approved in as little as 16 days and that case files lacked the basic and necessary law enforcement queries.”
Basically, immigrants being accepted into the United States were not properly vetted or given enough time for consideration before being accepted. So we could have had terrorists coming in and nobody would have known a thing. Making Johnson a whistleblower.
Johnson was with DHS for over ten years and investigated the United States Customs and Immigration Services (USCIS). The EB-5 program granted green cards to foreigners looking for citizenship. These were people who invested more than $500,000 in the United States. She said,
“Some of the violations investigated surrounding the project included bank and wire fraud, and I discovered ties to organized crime and high-ranking politicians and they received promotions that appeared to facilitate the program.”
During her stint with ICE Johnson never received disciplinary action and was an honored recipient of several awards before being abruptly let go. In 2013 she crossed paths with Senator Harry Reid about a visa for a foreign investor in a Las Vegas casino that was being represented by Cory Reid, the Senators son. Reid complained to her superior officer and thus she was placed on leave.
Reid has serious and lengthy connection with Lionel, Sawyer and Collins attorney and is well known for moves such as these. Reid and his cronies attempted to smear Johnson’s reputation. However, Johnson did not mention Reid’s role in her Senate testimony after pressure from Democratic staffers.
It is clear there is corruption and this time there is no hiding it. It was directly under the Obama administration that involved one of the highest ranking politicians in Washington D.C. and the Democratic party. It is time to drain the swamp.
