I Appoint Dan Bongino Acting Secretary of Homeland Security

Our current Secretary of Homeland Security appears to be violating some Conspiracy Law to carry out his activities. I think Dan Bongino would do a better job. Though I acknowledge that the police have violated my Conspiracy Law, they are also needed and don’t need to be defunded. We don’t need anarchy.

Bongino has called the investigation of the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections a “total scam,”[18] and is a proponent of the Spygate conspiracy theory.[19] In May 2018, Bongino was quoted by President Donald Trump in one of his tweets, as Bongino attacked former CIA Director John O. Brennan. Bongino was quoted as saying Brennan “has disgraced the entire Intelligence Community. He is the one man who is largely responsible for the destruction of American’s faith in the Intelligence Community and in some people at the top of the FBI.”[20] Bongino was also quoted as alleging that Brennan was “worried about staying out of jail.”[20]

In May 2018, after Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy and some conservative legal experts challenged Trump’s claims that the FBI had spied on his 2016 presidential campaign, Bongino claimed Gowdy had been “fooled” by the Department of Justice.[21] In February 2019, Bongino accused Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of attempting a coup against President Trump.[22]

Bongino is a member of Groundswell, a coalition of conservative and libertarian activists working to advance conservative causes.[23]
