(ReliableNews.org) – Joe Biden promised to restore unity to Washington, DC. However, his nomination of several controversial individuals for top government posts flies in the face of that vow. A top foreign policy expert has his sights on CIA Director William Burns. Here’s what is happening.
Breitbart News reported on May 5 that it discussed Burns’ role as CIA head with Frank Gaffney, the Center for Security Policy’s executive chairman. He said that Burns needed to resign for reportedly lying to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

According to Gaffney, Burns failed to report the truth about ending Chinese efforts to influence operations at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. He continued to explain that Burns used to run the Carnegie Endowment, where he enabled Chinese officials to conduct “influence operations.”
He told the Senate Intelligence Committee members during his confirmation hearing that he shut those operations down. However, Gaffney says that wasn’t the truth. He also alleged that Burns appointed a powerful influence operator from China on the Carnegie Endowment’s board of trustees. For those reasons, Burns “must resign,” Gaffney insisted.
As one might expect by now, the Biden administration has remained silent on the issue.
