|With Puerto Rican terrorist clemency recommending, Gitmo terrorist representing Attorney General Eric Holder running the DOJ, how likely is this investigation to get off the ground?

Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) and fellow GOP colleagues held a news conference Wednesday morning to announce a request for the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate possible attempts by the Council on American-Islam Relations (CAIR) to illegally lobby Congress.
According to Myrick, CAIR, a non-profit civil rights and advocacy group that strives to create a positive image of Islam, had attempted to infiltrate Congress by placing its interns in certain members’ offices. CAIR admitted to this allegation in a 2007 memo that Myrick now has, which stated that the organization was trying to “influence the policies of those members.”
Specifically, the memo also stated that CAIR was “most interested in the members who serve on the Judiciary, Intelligence, and Homeland Security Committees.”
In her remarks, Myrick announced a request for the U.S. Department of Justice to inform members of Congress and staff about this threat, and for the Sergeant of Arms to investigate whether or not CAIR was successful in placing its interns in Congressional offices. Myrick also called on the IRS to launch a full investigation into the legality of CAIR’s lobbying activities.
The North Carolina Republican also discussed CAIR’s alleged relationships with Islamic terrorist groups such as Hamas. In 2008, the Justice Department found that the organization had funded more than $12 million dollars to Hamas. Soon after, the FBI also severed all ties with CAIR because of its ties to Hamas.
CAIR’s chairman is North Carolina state senator Larry Shaw – to give you an indication of CAIR’s infiltration.
Dave Gaubatz, author of Muslim Mafia, also asked on his blog several months ago:
“Who placed Congressional Fellow Samia Elshafie in the office of Rep. Jackson-Lee (D-TX), and did Obama assist?…Just who is Elshafie. Does she report congressional intelligence she is privy to, to CAIR and Saylor? Was she a CAIR ‘plant’ into a Congressional office. How many more?

The faxed letter from CAIR’s Nadhira al-Khalili noted the Washington-based group had been forewarned of the press conference Myrick held with fellow members of the House anti-terror caucus leadership…
The CAIR lawyer told Myrick, co-founder of the Congressional Anti-Terror Caucus, she should “be aware that CAIR has contacted law enforcement authorities and filed a criminal report against those people that we believed have participated in the plot or furthered its goals. CAIR will also pursue civil damages against anyone responsible for defamation, theft of business documents, theft of trade secrets and invasion of privacy.”
The publisher of “Muslim Mafia,” WND CEO Joseph Farah, responded to CAIR’s fax with a letter to Myrick pointing out the CAIR documents were legally obtained by Gaubatz’s son, Chris, who went underground as a volunteer intern at the Islamic group’s national office for six months.
Farah explained Chris Gaubatz “was asked to shred documents he believed might be criminal evidence … and involve matters of national security. On advice from counsel, he collected those documents and preserved them. None of the documents were ’stolen.’”
“They were, in fact, handed to him by CAIR employees for destruction,” Farah wrote to Myrick. “All of the documents are available for review by appropriate law-enforcement authorities and, in fact, some have already been provided to them.”
Farah concluded Chris Gaubaz’s “patriotic activities within CAIR, an unindicted terrorist co-conspirator, were done on advice of counsel at every step, and were in accordance with District of Columbia and Virginia state law.”
According to a Washington attorney, “it is a federal and state crime to participate in the destruction of evidence of a crime if reasonable suspicion exists the documents are evidence of criminal activity.”
