Maxine Waters sics DOJ on opponent over tweet

The FBI is investigating Omar Navarro, Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ Republican challenger, over a fake letter he posted on Twitter in December outlining her alleged plan to settle 41,000 refugees in Los Angeles.

The letter, which included official letterhead and Waters’ signature, was addressed on June 22, 2017 to Terri Williams, chief operations officer for OneUnited Bank, which was at the center of congresswoman’s years-long House ethics investigation that ended in 2012.

“Regarding the 2020 LAUD, California’s 43rd district should have no problem accommodating up to 41k refuges in agreeance with CAIR’s relocation project with the condition that the majority of Somali refugees are housed in the district’s new condominium and apartment units funded and underwritten by OneUnited,” the letter read.

“The election cycle has begun and I do need your support, therefore I feel it would be best to announce plans for LAUD after the November elections, and perhaps even once I have secured the Speaker of the House position.”

The letterhead included committees Waters hasn’t served on since Democrats controlled Congress, an address for a closed former district office, and clearly appeared as if the whole thing was cut and pasted together – the background behind the text a different shade of white than the rest of the document.

“According to this document, Maxine Waters wants more terrorists, like the one who bombed NYC, in California’s 43rd District,” Navarro wrote in his Twitter post. “As Congressman of CA’s 43rd District, I will oppose such policies.”
