McConnell demands Biden ‘immediately’ withdraw his controversial BLM nominee

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is calling upon President Joe Biden to “immediately” withdraw his nomination of Tracey Stone-Manning to head the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), the Daily Caller reports

McConnell’s urgent request was revealed in a statement provided to Fox News.

“We now know that President Biden’s nominee to run the Bureau of Land Management lied to the Senate about her alleged participation in eco-terrorism,” McConnell said. “The White House should immediately withdraw her nomination.”

McConnell’s request comes in the wake of a similar request made by the Republican members of the Senate Energy Committee, who urged Biden to nix Stone-Manning in a letter signed and sent to the president on Wednesday.

Controversial background

Stone-Manning’s nomination for the BLM was put in jeopardy following a report that revealed her involvement in an ecoterrorism incident.

In 1989, Stone-Manning anonymously wrote a letter to the U.S. Forest Service informing it, in a threatening manner, that the trees in an Idaho park that were scheduled to be cut down were spiked. Stone-Manning was not revealed to be the letter’s author until years later when an informant tipped off investigators. Instead of being prosecuted, Stone-Manning was given a plea deal in exchange for testifying against the lead suspect.

Recently, one of the investigators involved in the incident revealed that Stone-Manning — who during her Senate testimony tried to distance herself from this incident — actively thwarted his investigation.

What’s more, the incident is not Stone-Manning’s only skeleton in the closet. Another report found that while she was a student at the University of Montana, Stone-Manning wrote a thesis arguing for population control as a solution to environmental problems. The report indicated that she asked the university to limit access to the thesis roughly a year ago.

The latest report on Stone-Manning revealed that she helped edit an “Earth First!” newsletter. Breitbart described the newsletter as “a radical environmental newsletter that advocated for violent action.”

Still in the running

Despite all of Stone-Manning’s prior controversies, the Biden administration has remained supportive of her nomination.

“Tracy Stone-Manning is a dedicated public servant who has years of experience and a proven track record of finding solutions and common ground when it comes to our public lands and waters,” the White House said in June. “She is exceptionally qualified to be the next Director of the Bureau of Land Management.”

As of this writing, amid the increased controversy and scrutiny of her record, Stone-Manning’s confirmation has stalled.

  8. “McConnell demands” Yeah, the establishment GOP does a lot of demanding and then nothing! They need to make these empty ‘demands’ in order to make the fools that trust them think they are all about doing something, when in truth they do nothing but demand!

    1. Exactly correct. The only thing that McConnell and the rest of the do nothing RINOs do is talk, talk, talk. That’s the main reason why I only donate to republican candidates wanting to primary out sitting worthless “republicans.” I won’t give one thin dime to the RNC so they can spread it amongst the republican dead wood and RINOs.
