Email PROVES Mayorkas KNEW Border Patrol Whipping Narrative Was False, But Ran With It Anyway (Video)

On Wednesday, Fox News’ Bill Melugin reported that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas knew the Border Patrol never once whipped Haitian migrants at the southern border, but ran with the narrative anyway.

This was made known in an email obtained as the result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request submitted by Heritage Foundation, Fox News said.  Despite being told the truth of the matter, Mayorkas, Biden, the Democrats, and their willing propagandists in the lying liberal media ran with the narrative anyway.

According to Fox News:

In fact, agents were using split reins to control their horses as migrants rushed across the river. But a narrative, based on a misinterpretation of photographs, was running and on Sept. 24 was further fueled by President Biden.

“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped — it’s outrageous,” Biden told reporters, making a whipping motion with his hand. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now, and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

The investigation is still ongoing more than a year later, but findings by the Office of Professional Responsibility in July found that no whips were in their possession and no migrant was struck by the reins – although it did find other alleged infractions.

But just hours after Biden made his inflammatory remarks to cameras, Marsha Espinosa, assistant secretary of DHS public affairs, emailed Mayorkas and cc’d other DHS leadership, alerting them to a news article that showed that the photographer who took the images did not see any whipping. In the email, Espinosa highlighted the comments from the photographer where he directly says he did not witness any whipping.

But only a scant two and a half hours after being told the truth, Mayorkas joined then-White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki to push what he KNEW was a bald-faced lie.

“Our nation saw horrifying images that do not reflect who we are. We know that those images painfully conjured up the worst elements of our nation’s ongoing battle against systemic racism,” Mayorkas said.  “The images horrified us in terms of what they suggest and what they conjure up,” he added.

Here’s video of that statement:

Here’s the email, posted to Twitter by Melugin:

He added:

Melugin said he gave DHS TWO DAYS to respond, but heard nothing — but crickets:

Twitchy quipped:

Don’t expect a response, Bill. At least until they’ve had the opportunity to confer with their top spin doctors on this.

And even a top spin doctor would know that there’s really no way to spin this that will make Mayorkas and the Biden administration look good here.

Or perhaps they’ll get Karine Jean-Pierre to tell reporters it never happened…

Good question.

He should have been impeached a long time ago.

Here’s the Fox News report:

Of course.  Because lying is the only thing this Regime is capable of doing, as we and others have pointed out.

No, there isn’t.

As Twitchy observed, the entire disgraceful, lying Biden Regime needs to go.  And that includes Mayorkas.  And the liberal media propagandists who push their lies without question.
