Matt Gaetz Torches Witness During Hearing on DEI in Armed Forces - WATCH

During a hearing, Rep. Matt Gaetz questioned the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness of the U.S., Gilbert Cisneros, about a ‘Diversity staffer’ under investigation for making racist remarks about white people on social media.

Cisneros appeared unable or unwilling to give a straight answer to any questions Matt Gaetz was asking in the hearing.

As The Daily Mail reported:

A top Pentagon official has said that a diversity officer who tweeted disparaging remarks about white people will not face workplace discipline following a lengthy internal investigation.

Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, Gil Cisneros faced a tough grilling on the controversy from Republicans on the House Armed Services Committee at a hearing on Thursday.

Cisneros confirmed that DoDo employee Kelisa Wing would not be fired or otherwise sanctioned for tweets she wrote prior to taking a job as the chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer in the Department of Defense’s Education Activity office (DoDEA), which oversees schooling for children of military families.

Cisneros admitted he found the tweets objectionable and said in a letter that Wing was transferred to another role.

“I do agree that that is not acceptable. It’s not something that I would condone, and it’s not condoned by DoDEA or the Department of Defense,” Cisneros told the panel.

“Mr. Cisneros, are you familiar with the tweet? Can you please read the tweet aloud?” asked Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., about one of Wing’s controversial posts…

Matt Gaetz, R-Fla, said, “I would like to go back to the tweets of the racist person that works for you. What does ‘Caudacity’ mean?”

“I have no idea,” Cisneros said.

“You took six months to investigate one tweet. You didn’t even figure out what the words meant?” Matt Gaetz asked.

“You said in a Fox News Digital article that you were going to take 30 days to investigate, and it took you six months in a six-month investigation. You guys didn’t learn what the word ‘Caudacity’ meant?” Gaetz said. “I think, you know. I think every person that’s going to watch this exchange knows, you know, it’s she’s trying to lash audaciousness with someone being Caucasian, isn’t she?”

“I have no idea,” Cisneros said. “We do not support racist tweets. We do not support racism.”

Kelisa you have just proven that Racism Is Not just a White Disease. It is a Human Disease and you are infected with caudacity.
You appear to be blind to what Martin Luther-King was saying in his speech; “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will NOT be judged by the Color of their Skin but by their character.”

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
