Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is now demanding that President Joe Biden withdraw his nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management, Tracy Stone-Manning, after revelations that she had previous involvement with a notorious eco-terrorist ring.

As Fox News reports:

Every Republican on the Senate Energy Committee already signed a letter Wednesday urging Biden to pull Stone-Manning’s nomination, but now Fox News has exclusively learned that the highest-ranking Senate Republican has thrown his support behind the effort to stop Stone-Manning’s confirmation process.

“We now know that President Biden’s nominee to run the Bureau of Land Management lied to the Senate about her alleged participation in eco-terrorism,” McConnell said in a statement to Fox News. “The White House should immediately withdraw her nomination.”

The controversy surrounds Stone-Manning’s ties to a “tree-spiking” operation meant to sabotage logging efforts in the 1980s. During her Senate confirmation process, Stone-Manning told senators in a questionnaire that she had never been the target of a law enforcement investigation.

New information from a retired United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Forest Service investigator and Army veteran Michael Merkley cast doubt on Stone-Manning’s repeated attempts to distance herself from the tree-spiking incident in Idaho’s Clearwater National Forest, which happened when she was a graduate student involved with the environmental group Earth First!

Perhaps it’s not that much of a surprise that a radical left-wing President like Biden would choose a nominee that has direct ties to actual terrorists.

What are you writing?! “Nominee” is singular and “their” is plural. Your headline writer needs to go to re-education camp.

Correct. But we can’t use pronouns like “her” anymore, right? Ha

“It” is an adequate descriptor.

You’re nitpicking of a grammatical blunder is ignorant, as you do not address the seriousness of trying to appoint such radically leftist people to important positions in our government!

You are a nit picker and that is NOT a compliment! STOP being so critical, the world has become a critical MESS! How about we ALL learn to love one another and not to be nit pickers. By the way, nit picking is MOST CHILDISH!

so germane to the point. Hey what is the derivative of say x squared (give you an easy one) and what is a derivative. Quick google. The point is you pretend to be an expert on english, maybe you are and maybe not. But that doesn’t mnean you are smart just you can memorizd rules. Who cares.
Now to the point, I have heard this news before but the dems will appoint because they all have and are doing things that are totally illegal and tthey love to have criminals as their buddies in arms. No supprise here. Look to chipman (sh.. did I spell that right, I am sure you’ll let me know if you know of whom I speak(.

Being called or affirmed as “a traitor” means nothing anymore. As a matter of fact, it’s a pre-requisite and mandatory for becoming a Democrat!
