McConnell Calls on Biden to Rescind His ATF Nominee

Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called on the White House Friday to rescind David Chipman’s nomination to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms over allegations that Chipman “made racist statements about the abilities of African American ATF agents.”

Chipman’s nomination was already in jeopardy over his long-time support for gun control efforts. Biden, the New York Times reported earlier this year, nominated Chipman, who has “advised gun control groups” “in part because of his willingness to bluntly confront an industry that has handcuffed the agency, which enforces gun laws.”

Biden even announced Chipman’s nomination in a press conference where he unveiled his own gun control agenda, calling gun violence an “epidemic” and an “international embarrassment.”
