DC Attorney General just made the decision on whether to charge Gold Star dad for SOTU outburst

DC Attorney General decided the fate of Gold Star dad from the State of the Union

Leftists generally take a dim view of dissent in any form.

So there has been an open question as to what would happen to someone who dared to speak up.

Now the DC Attorney General just decided the fate of a Gold Star dad for his State of the Union outburst.

Steve Nikoui is the father of U.S. Marine Kareem Nikoui.

Kareem Nikoui was killed during Joe Biden’s bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan in 2021.

During Biden’s State of the Union address, Nikoui shouted “Remember Abbey Gate! United States Marines!” and “Abbey Gate!” from the balcony of the House chamber.

For that outburst, Nikoui was arrested and charged with disrupting Congress.

Nikoui has been a harsh critic of the Biden administration since his son’s death.

The entire tragedy and the mishandling of the aftermath has been an embarrassment for Joe Biden.

Ever since the incident claimed the lives of thirteen Americans, Biden’s approval rating became net-negative and never recovered.

Nikoui has been joined by other Gold Star families in his frustration over Joe Biden’s bungled response to the tragedy.

Gold Star mother, Christy Shamblin, went on CNN and spoke of how the Biden White House wouldn’t return her phone calls.

Biden effectively ghosted a Gold Star mother

When asked if she had spoken to Biden, Shamblin said, “No. He’s not reached out to our family. We’ve actually reached out to the White House and have never heard back. We asked to meet with them…We’ve not received a response. It’s been months.”

Clearly, the man who was billed as “empathetic” during the 2020 presidential campaign by corporate media has failed on that score just as much as he has in virtually every other aspect of his presidency.

But there is now some good news.

Brian Schwalb, the Democrat Attorney General of the District of Columbia, has decided to drop the misdemeanor charge against Nikoui.

Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA) confirmed to The National Desk that the charges filed against Nikoui were dropped.

Issa: Biden alone is responsible for the loss of 13 U.S. servicemembers

In a statement, Issa said, “My friend and California Gold Star father Steve Nikoui’s direct call for accountability reminded the entire nation what the President wants everyone to forget — 13 U.S. servicemembers were lost at the Abbey Gate bombing in Afghanistan in the chaotic and disastrous withdrawal for which Biden alone is responsible. Steve did nothing wrong, he should not have been charged with a crime, and the charges were justifiably dropped. But this isn’t over. I stand with these Gold Star families, I share their anger and frustration, and I will continue the work toward the accountability they deserve.”

Schwalb’s office declined to comment on the charge.

Issa said in a letter to Capitol Police that Nikoui’s outbursts were in response to the “lack of answers and accountability from the Biden Administration on the events and failures that led to the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan which claimed the lives of 13 American servicemembers.”

In the end, the District Attorney made the right call, but it’s an open question how much the prospect of further embarrassment to the Biden Administration may have nudged him in the right direction.
