Texas state Sen. Konni Burton, a Republican, utilized her social media accounts to bring particular attention to a mind blowing claim made by former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson on the “Steve Malzberg Show” Wednesday.
Citing sources who have “worked in the Obama administration,” Attkisson noted officials think President Barack Obama has “closed his mind” to data on certain radical Islamic terrorist groups. She also maintained Obama is “facing formidable opposition on this particular point.”
“You’re telling me, that you’ve talked to people in his inner circle, or the administration, that are telling you that even though there are groups that might be on our terror list…Obama, in his mind, doesn’t consider them to be terrorists because what – they have a gripe?” host Steve Malzberg hard pressed.
“I don’t know the reasoning for it,” Attkisson responded. “I’ve only been told by those who have allegedly attempted to present him or been in the circle that has attempted to present him with certain intelligence that they said he doesn’t want it…or he won’t read it in some instances.”
Due to the anonymous sourcing of the claim, FusionLacedIllusions.com is powerless to independently confirm the statements.
Burton later called the claim “utterly frightening” in a tweet and Facebook post.
Utterly frightening. From Obama’s inner circle: https://t.co/VP7MmizBUD #txlege
