It is not a secret that his administration is really pushing a racist narrative down everyone’s throat.
When Health and Human Services Secretary Becerra was under oath before Congress, he was asked about this agenda by Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL).
Becerra claimed that the narrative that the idea that the administration has an “anti-racism” plan that includes a “clinic-wide review” of doctor ideology, including their “commitment to anti-racism” was “driven by mis- and disinformation.”
He even challenged Palmer to find the information.
Watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust took Becerra up on that.
The organization filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking all records with “anti-racism” or “antiracism” in them connected to Becerra, Administrator of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, and HHS Chief of Staff Sean McCluskie.
Now, I would say that is a pretty narrow search: two words and three officials.
Yet, the HHS has declined the request, saying that the search needs to be narrowed.
PPT has since filed a lawsuit against HHS, demanding it respond to its FOIA request.
The policy is not in question; it is just proving that Becerra knew the policy existed, which would mean that he lied under oath, also known as perjury.
PPT Director Michael Chamberlain stated, “The American public needs to be assured they can trust the statements of those at the highest levels of power who create, implement, and oversee the policies that affect their lives and how the funds they remit as taxes are spent.”
He added, “Based on the initial reply from HHS (to narrow the search), we question whether the agency even read PPT’s FOIA request before sending it.
“They wanted us to ‘narrow’ a request that asked them to search for one term in the communications of three people.
“It’s little wonder they didn’t provide any suggestions for doing so.
“The American public’s trust in the agency Secretary Becerra leads has plummeted during the pandemic and a good first step in restoring that trust is to comply with our request so they can determine whether he delivered truthful testimony to their elected representatives.”
The HHS is going to lose this lawsuit and when it does, it will have to provide the requested documents, which are likely to show that Becerra perjured himself during congressional testimony.
We will be expecting his resignation immediately afterward.
