FEC Findings Show Backstabbing McAleenan Has Been PUMPING MONEY To Democrat Causes

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, who was accused of sabotaging the Trump administration’s deportation operation because of a personal opposition to the plan, has given for years solely to Democratic causes, according to federal records.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, wrote in an op-ed Monday that the secretary and his wife’s donations only to Democratic politicians and organizations over the past 12 years could explain why McAleenan allegedly leaked a nationwide Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid to the media last week, forcing the administration to cancel the extensive undertaking after months of planning.

“He has proven his political leanings in his actions, including his campaign contributions,” Judd wrote in a Fox News op-ed. “By definition, Kevin McAleenan should be considered anti-Trump.”

McAleenan had no giving history until the 2008 presidential election, Federal Election Commission data shows. He made 11 contributions from $100 to $600 totaling $3,000 to then-Sen. Barack Obama between November 2007 and November 2008. One $100 donation was rescinded.

The Trump-appointed Cabinet member gave $67.10 to the DNC Services Corporation/Democratic National Committee in October 2008, then $3,300 to the same entity in November. Two weeks later, that large donation was rescinded, according to Federal Election Commission records.

At the time of the 2007-2009 donations, McAleenan was working for the Department of Homeland Security as U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s area port director at Los Angeles International Airport, his LinkedIn page shows.
