Finally someone is arrested, but really after Melek Can Dickerson, nothing changes? How much longer will US Government corruption allow spies and people with terrorism ties to work as US Gov't translators? There is no excuse @sibeledmonds
Abdirizak Haji Raghe Wehelie, who served as an FBI translator from 2012-15, was charged on multiple counts related to his alleged interference with a federal terrorism investigation
Wehelie misled investigators when they were scrutinizing a terrorism investigation involving unnamed individuals connected to Al-Shabaab, an Islamic terrorist group that operates in East Africa and controls territory in Somalia
In August 2018, CAIR sued the Trump administration on behalf of the Wehelie family, which included Hawa Wehelie, which court papers identified as Wehelie's daughter. CAIR's goal is to remove the terrorist screening database.
It remains unclear why Wehelie the translator remained on the FBI's payroll for several years, given his family's well-established connections to radicalism. @vabelle2010
In 2017, Yusuf Wehelie — one of Wehelie's sons, who had been originally banned from entry — was sentenced to 10 years in prison for attempting to illegally transport high-powered weapons.
In interviews with undercover informants, Yusuf Wehelie (the son of the FBI translator) discussed his willingness to target U.S. military recruitment centers on behalf of the Islamic State terrorist group.
