GOP Members of Congress Call for Investigation into Muslim Non-Profit Attempt to Place Interns in Congressional Offices - Video
Here is video of GOP Members of Congress calling for an investigation into a Muslim non-profit organization - Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) - after memos have been uncovered showing the group has sought to place interns in the offices of members of Congress. According to Rep. Sue Myrick, they have particularly sought to place interns in member offices who sit on the judiciary, intelligence, and homeland security committees:
"About a year ago I learned that CAIR was trying to infiltrate the offices of members of Congress by placing interns in the offices, but I could not substantiate the rumors because I had no documentation to that effect. Now, however, author Paul Sperry, and his co-author's investigative team unearthed a 2007 memo written by CAIR which documents their stated intentions and goals to place interns in congressional offices supposedly for the purpose of influencing the policies of those members. Even more troubling, that the memo states that they are most interested in members who are serving on the judiciary, intelligence and homeland security committees."
