POTUS: Steps Up “Already Extreme Vetting”

“The President of the United States tweeted late last night: ‘I just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already extreme vetting program.’ So, let me ask you as a member of the House Intelligence Committee, having met with many members of the intelligence community in closed door sessions: Is there any way that extreme vetting can get to someone who’s been here seven years and vet the internet as he sits in an apartment in Paterson, New Jersey reading social media?” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle of Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) during a conversation about the aftermath of the terror attack in New York City, where the suspected attacker, Sayfullo Saipov, a legal permanent resident of the United States who arrived in the country from Uzbekistan in 2010, used a rented truck to mow down pedestrians and cyclists on a Manhattan bike path – killing eight people.
