A former high-level Obama intel official has posted $250,000 bail for Urooj Rahman, the Brooklyn bomb thrower who firebombed an unoccupied NYPD police cruiser early Saturday. The Obama official, Salmah Rizvi, called the suspect her “best friend.” Wow. Obama people really need to get out more.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that Salmah Rizvi, who served in intelligence posts in the Defense and State Departments during the Obama administration, put up the quarter million dollar bail.
Rizvi said to the court, “Urooj Rahman is my best friend and I am an associate at the law firm Ropes & Gray in Washington, D.C. … I earn $255,000 a year.” Rizvi is a high-priced DC lawyer who is making a big salary from the very system her best friend seems to hate. That best friend, who firebombs police cars, is also a lawyer. The DC legal community certainly seems to be “diverse.”
The Free Beacon also noted, according to her biography at the Islamic Scholarship Fund (Why is that not a surprise?), Rizvi’s “high-value work would often inform the president’s daily briefs.” This was the kind of person who briefed Barack Obama on intel matters. That explains a lot.
Rizvi received a scholarship supported by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR is an anti-Semitic and anti-Israel hate group. In 2009 the FBI said there was mounting evidence that the group had links to a support network for Hamas. But was that after Obama became president and he still had her in that sensitive position? It seems so.
In a continuing saga that pushes every conservative button on the Obama regime, Rizvi also received more scholarship cash from the Paul and Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans. That group was founded by the brother of George Soros. Really, this is getting too good.
Rizvi’s DC law firm, Ropes & Gray, also employs one Jordan Bryant. Ms. Bryant has previously declared, while attending the Ivy League law school at Yale, that she hopes America is burned “to the ground.”
“F–k the United States,” she eloquently and maturely wrote in 2014, “Why do we remain here, where we are so clearly unwanted. It’s time for a mass exodus. I am a citizen of this place in name only; my nationality is not American as far as I am concerned. Black people, use the US for a passport and nothing else. Mine this den of hypocrisy for the privileges it can afford you, and shun it otherwise. I hope we burn it to the ground.” That seems to be par for the course if you want to make big bucks at Ropes and Gray. Oh, and there’s this nugget: Bryant’s bio on the Ropes & Gray company website states that she was a “Fox Fellow” at Moscow State University, where she studied “race relations.” Now, just what side of the ideological spectrum is colluding with the Russians?
To their credit, some Yale classmates challenged Bryant’s comments on America. But they were immediately shouted down by other students for committing “microaggressions” against a “person of color.” Apparently free speech is only free speech when the Ivy League speech commissars say it is.
Ropes and Gray is a symptom of a larger bitter and masochistic disease plaguing America. That malady had its apogee in the Obama regime. It is now coming back again to try and destroy this country. Ropes and Gray is a willing pawn of it. But maybe their high salaries make it a little easier for them to bear.
