Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman James Schwab sat down Wednesday for his first television interview since resigning in March and taking on whistleblower status – and on live TV, agents from the Department of Homeland Security turned up at his home to interrupt the interview.
CBS News reported that it was speaking with James Schwab about his decision to resign a few months earlier when DHS agents arrived at his home.
Schwab told CBS the agents asked if he’d been in contact with Libby Schaaf, the mayor of Oakland, Calif., who rankled conservatives earlier this year when she warned city residents of a pending immigration sweep.
“Why, three months later, are we doing this?” Schwab asked. “This is intimidation. And this is why people won’t come out and speak against the government.”
