Report: White House Plans to Withdraw David Chipman’s Nomination as ATF Head
Good. A man with extreme gun control views should not be in charge of the ATF.
The Washington Post reported the White House will withdraw its nomination of David Chipman to head the ATF.
A senior administration official told CNN that Chipman does “not have the votes.” The official admitted they “will land him in a non-confirmed job in the administration.”
Chipman used to work for the ATF. He then joined a gun-control group.
Chipman faced bipartisan pushback due to his extreme gun control views. He told Congress he wants to ban AR-15s:
“With respect to the AR-15, I support a ban as has been presented in a senate bill and supported by the president,” Chipman told Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas. Cruz said the AR-15 was “one of, if not the, most popular rifle in America.
“The AR-15 is a gun I was issued on the ATF’s SWAT team, and it’s a particularly lethal weapon. Regulating it as other particularly lethal weapons, I have advocated for. As ATF director, if I’m confirmed, I would simply enforce the laws on the books, and right now there is no such ban on those guns.”
Chipman also defended and justified the Waco raid in the 1990s. He also lied about Koresh followers shooting at helicopters.
Seven former ATF agents told the Senate Judiciary Committee they should not confirm Chipman because his “personal beliefs on firearms issues will create serious and long-lasting problems for the Bureau and the effective execution of its law enforcement mission.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
That’s good news. He had to much baggage to begin with.
Loved the WaPo headline:
White House pulling nomination of ATF chif amid pushback over gun-control advocacy
Remember: young WaPo/Jeff Bezos propagandists are products of the democrat-run American education system.
“The official admitted they “will land him in a non-confirmed job in the administration.”
Translation: We still want him working against guns but it’s going to have to be under congress’s radar. Actually, this is a big win!
Perhaps heading the CDC study of the “pandemic of gun violence” everywhere but Chicago, Baltimore, DC, … open southern border areas …
Biden will probably nominate the skateboarder-dude from Texas as the next in line.
Confirmees will not get any better.
Not the faux Hispanic bucktoof!
Do you think for one minute he actually picks any of these people? I don’t..
Of course he doesn’t. Susan Rice is the de facto president.
a little too much overreach on this one.
As the “Big Reset” continues to roll out, this is a big one to stop. You can bet that once the Marxists get everyone in place, top priority will be to grab guns in advance of the next shut down leading to economic breakdown.
We are headed for martial law and it could happen sooner that we think. Next year is looking bleak for not only Dems but all Uniparty incumbents so don’t count on THESE Republicans to save us. Thank God Trump is on the move again. Masks are dropping again.
One down. Next up for retirement: his literal boss, Sen. Mark Kelly.
Chipman. Always thought he was fishy. Probably working for scale…
Aye, he looks like a bad’un.
Chipman and Milley should get together. Two greasy, transparently self-serving, opportunistic, dishonest and narcissistic Dhimmi-crat fops and fools. Whoring themselves out to promote the most manifestly radical and stupid Dhimmi-crat conceits, in order advance their careers.
Had Lloyd Austin join in to complete the circle of jerks.
