Crony, Democrat Joe Biden’s nominee to head the FAA, is under investigation and completely unqualified for the job.
It’s a serious position where the lives of airline passengers are at risk, and Biden is treating it like a patronizing position.
Senator Ted Cruz of Texas revealed all in the hearing.
Ted Cruz chops up Biden’s corruption-plagued FAA nominee
Ted Cruz has Wednesday and brought another big question to the Texas senator in the afternoon.
Earlier in the day, Cruz grilled AG Merrick Garland, getting him to admit that the Biden administration is not fairly enforcing the law on various fronts. Next was the President’s nominee to lead the Federal Aviation Administration, Phil Washington.
Washington has a long history for left-wing politicians, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. He gets embroiled in a corruption scandal, where he heads a pay-to-play scandal that hands out $800,000 in no-bid contracts to a politically-used charity.
Still, the Biden administration has positioned Washington as a nominee because absolutely nothing matters to the White House but pushing “equity” in government agencies.
Whether you like Cruz or not, and personally I think he’s great, the guy does his homework. For him to be able to jump from hearing to hearing like this in a single day and continue to dominate different subjects is a skill that doesn’t come easily. The Texas senator is whip-smart, and he doesn’t suffer from ambiguity and stupidity, both of which Washington attempted during the exchange.

I am disappointed that the Biden administration has chosen the aviation security position as a supporting occupation.
They want to play politics instead of keeping Americans safe.

It’s like making ‘Mayor Pete’ the Transport Secretary. Decision is not based on merits. It is a political manual for loyal party supporters.
