Bush ASSASSINATION Plot – Lawmakers Respond
(ConservativeHub.com) – Federal agents’ arrest of Shihab Ahmed Shihab on May 24 for his connection to a plot to assassinate former President George W Bush raised concerns with GOP lawmakers. Representatives Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Tom McClintock (R-CA) sent a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on June 7 with a request for information on Shihab. They want to examine the holes in the immigration process that allowed this alleged criminal into the US.
Shihab reportedly came into the US on a tourist visa and requested asylum. His asylum request was still under review at the time of his arrest. Agents said Shihab planned to bring other Iraqi nationals across the southern border to help with his plot to kill the former president.

The representatives said the situation provides evidence of exploitation within the immigration system. They pointed the blame at the Biden administration’s border policies.
For oversight reasons, Jordan and McClintock requested information about Shihab’s immigration case history, including the details of the date, time, and place he entered the US. They asked for the details of how US Customs and Border Protection officials handled his entry. The representatives also inquired whether the officials were aware of his background and wanted additional information about the screening process he underwent upon entry. They gave a deadline to turn over the data of June 21 at 5:00 pm.
The Daily Caller, which broke the exclusive story, requested comment from the State Department and Department of Homeland Security, but the agencies hadn’t responded by press time.
