REPORT: DOX REVEAL TRUMP WHITE HOUSE CONCERN OVER KRIS KOBACH 'WHITE SUPREMACY' BAGGAGE!!!
First and foremost, we've met Kris Kobach a few times and OVER & OVER he has renounced racism and explained his advocacy which prioritizes protecting the nation's borders and enforcing immigration law above all else.
Nevertheless, it's fair to report that the question of alleged White Supremacy has plagued the politico throughout his career. In fact, the horrific branding and his lack of skill in shaking the image has undoubtedly stunted his progress and confined him to flyover country AM radio fame with little power or credibility inside the Beltway other than a few token Fox News appearances.
Check the latest example that was politely ignored by the local MSM over the past couple of weeks:
According to the vetting docs, “white supremacy” was a significant “red flag” for Kobach. “Past political opponents have accused Kobach of allying himself with groups that had connections to white supremacist groups,” the documents read. This probably refers to reports that Kobach accepted funding from white supremacist groups during his election in 2004.
But there have been even more reports of Kobach’s ties to white supremacy in the years since these transition vetting docs were compiled following the 2016 election. Last year, he was accused of employing three white nationalists on his gubernatorial campaign, and financial disclosures revealed he was still accepting thousands of dollars from white nationalists. His support for strict voter ID laws that disenfranchise racial minority voters and rabidly xenophobic views of immigration are not inconsistent with such views.
