Leading Democrat Caught Lying About Secret Hotel Meeting Involving Louis Farrakhan
Congressman and Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison was caught lying about a secret hotel meeting fellow lawmaker Democrat Rep. Andre Carson had with anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
Leading Democrat Keith Ellison found himself in hot-water Tuesday after a fellow liberal lawmaker revealed a secret “hotel room” meeting with Louis Farrakhan back in 2015; blowing a giant hole in Ellison’s assertions that he severed contact with the prominent anti-Semite in 2006.
Democratic Rep. Andre Carson spilled the beans on Ellison’s real relationship with the Nation of Islam leader this week, saying he and the Deputy Chief of the DNC met with Farrakhan as recently as 2015 at a hotel in Washington, DC. […]
“Carson said that he agreed to meet with Farrakhan in 2015, in the minister’s hotel suite, because they have a shared interest and passion for improving the quality of life in urban neighborhoods.
According to The Wall Street Journal — On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in December 2016, Mr. Ellison angrily accused his critics of a “smear campaign” for “talking about something that happened in 1995,” when Mr. Ellison was 32.
However, Keith wasn’t telling the truth. Rep. Ellison and fellow Democrat Gregory Meeks had dinner with Louis Farrakhan and Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani in 2013.
