A longtime congressional aide has been terminated.
Barbara Jenell Hamlett, a congressional staffer for Rep. Don Beyer (D-CA) was let go after some disturbing revelations.
An investigation revealed that Hamlett was openly recruiting other staffers to meet with Chinese officials.
China Penetrating Democrat Party
Hamlett has worked in congressional offices since the 1970s.
She had most recently been working for Rep. Beyer.
Beyer terminated her when he was made aware of her activities.
Aaron Fritschner, Beyer’s deputy chief of staff, stated, “Congressman Beyer was totally unaware of these activities prior to being contacted by the House Sergeant At Arms.
“As soon as he learned of them, he followed every directive he was given by security officials.
“The staffer in question is no longer employed by the office of Congressman Beyer.”
Hamlett has also worked for the late Sen. Arlen Specter (R-PA), former Rep. Diane Watson (D-CA), Rep. Mike Honda (D-CA), Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson (D-TX), and former Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY).
Hamlett, over the last few months, had been reaching out to other staffers to set up meetings with Chinese officials.
These invitations raised suspicions, and the Sergeant-at-Arms was notified, subsequently opening up an investigation.
Unless I am mistaken, it sure sounds like Hamlett was recruiting for the Chinese.
This would be yet another Chinese operative that has been implanted deep in the Democrat Party.
This is a developing story and we will update as more details become available.
