In fact, Jones claims that during a 2018 Homeland Security conference call he participated in, the unnamed officials present appeared to suggest they wanted the program to fail.

“The folks in that conference call said, we’ll pick places we can make it fail,” he claimed.

Prior to this week, these were just...
