(Breitbart) Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) is investigating allegations the Department of Homeland Security has deleted records related to a list of terrorists the agency maintains as part of a “hands off” policy on some of the individuals on the list.

Grassley released emails last week describing the alleged terrorist “hands off” list at DHS which apparently resulted in the deletion of records of an individual who was allegedly a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and a “close associate” of a supporter of “Hamas, Hizbollah, and (Palestinian) Islamic Jihad.”

The individual referenced in Senator Charles Grassley’s inquiry to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson is Jamal Badawi, as previously reported by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

Badawi is an Egyptian born Canadian Islamist leader and member at large of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). He was also a founding member of the Muslim American Society (MAS) as well as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
