Biden Administration Fires Trump Appointee For Pushing ‘False Flag’ January 6th Falsehoods

On Friday, The Washington Post reported that the Biden administration has forced the resignation of a Trump administration appointee after he used his blog to promote the right-wing conspiracy theories that the FBI helped to instigate the January 6th attack on the Capitol.

Gautam Raghavan, deputy director of the White House Office of Presidential Personnel, issued the letter to Darren Beattie, who was appointed to the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad in November 2020, was told in a letter Friday that he must turn in his resignation by the end of the business day, and if he did not, his position would be terminated,” the Post article says. “Beattie confirmed the White House’s letter in a Friday afternoon tweet, saying the request for his resignation was ‘better than a Pulitzer [Prize].'”

The main purpose of the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad is to memorialize victims of the Holocaust. Hate crimes surged during the Trump administration, with a marked increase in Anti-Semitism. Several Republican members of Congress have been forced to redact Anti-Semitic comments, with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) as the most vocal.

Before Trump appointed him to the commission, Beattie worked as a presidential speechwriter but was removed from that role after it emerged that he appeared at a conference with Peter Brimelow, the infamous founder of the white supremacist website VDare.com.

Beattie’s termination didn’t sit well with his former employer, who issued a statement praising Beattie for pushing his baseless claims about the 2020 election and January 6th when the pro-Trump mob invaded the Capitol to stop the certification of Joe Biden’s electoral college win, an attack that left five dead and 140 members of law enforcement injured. “‘Because of Darren’s work, and others, Americans aren’t buying into the Unselect Committee’s attempts to smear 75 million (plus!) Americans,’ Trump said via his spokesperson Liz Harrington, in an apparent reference to his 2020 voters. Trump received about 74 million votes; Biden got about 81 million.

Beattie has not indicated what his next steps will be.
