Rep. Jason Smith to Newsmax: DOJ Must Probe Hamas-Linked US Nonprofit

Rep. Jason Smith, R-Mo., chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, told Newsmax on Wednesday about efforts to have the Department of Justice investigate a U.S.-based nonprofit linked to a Hamas affiliate who held Israelis hostage in the Gaza Strip.

A letter Tuesday to Attorney General Merrick Garland signed by Smith; Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., chair of the Committee on Oversight and Accountability; and Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., chair of the Committee on Education and the Workforce, urged the DOJ to investigate The Palestine Chronicle and People Media Project for violating federal laws, including laws prohibiting material support for terrorism and the filing of false tax returns.

“We have documented once we started looking into The Palestine Chronicle, we noticed that they had tax filings in at the federal level, saying that they brought in less than $50,000 a year in the tax years of ’21, ’22, and ’23. However, in the state of Washington their tax filings show that it was over that amount,” Smith told “The Record With Greta Van Susteren.”
