WASHINGTON, DC: Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) has shockingly claimed that each Republican member of Congress has been appointed a representative by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) so that they vote for bills benefiting Israel.

On ‘The Tucker Carlson Show’ on Friday, June 7, Massie revealed that he did not share a cordial relationship with AIPAC as they lobbied against his reelection following his rejection of writing a white paper on Israel, as reported by Mediaite.

Thomas Massie says he does not have ‘an AIPAC person’

He shared, “I have Republicans, you come to me on the floor and say, ‘I wish I could vote with you today. Yours is the right vote, but I would just take too much flak back home'."

“And I have Republicans who come to me and say, ‘That’s wrong, what a PAC is doing to you. Let me talk to my AIPAC person.’ By the way, everybody but me has an AIPAC person,” the 53-year-old politician stated.

Thomas Massie (R-KY) speaks during a House Rules Committee hearing to discuss a bill that would sanction the International Criminal Court (ICC), on Capitol Hill on June 3, 2024 in Washington, DC. The attempt at a bipartisan bill comes as a result of requests for arrest warrants for top Israeli leaders from the ICC over the war against Hamas in Gaza, and is an effort by some lawmakers in Washington to deter the court going forward with such charges.

Carlson soon interrupted asking, “What does that mean – an AIPAC person?” to which Massie replied, “It’s like your babysitter. Your AIPAC babysitter who is always talking to you for AIPAC. They’re probably a constituent in your district, but they are, you know, firmly embedded in AIPAC.”

The host further questioned, “And every member has something like this.”

The congressman replied, “Every Re– I don’t know how it works on the Democrats’ side. But that’s how it works on the Republican side. And when they come to DC, you go have lunch with them. And they’ve got your cell number and you have conversations with them."

He went on to elaborate, “I’ve had four members of Congress say, ‘I’ll talk to my AIPAC person.’ And like that’s clearly what we call them, my AIPAC guy. I’ll talk to my AIPAC guy and see if I can get them to, you know, dial those ads back.”

Expressing his shock, Carlson remarked, “Why have I never heard this before?”

Massie said, “It doesn’t benefit anybody. Why would they want to tell their constituents that they’ve basically got a buddy system with somebody who’s representing a foreign country?”

“It doesn’t benefit the congressmen for people to know that. So they’re not going to tell you that,” he asserted.

Internet reacts to Thomas Massie's revelations

Meanwhile, Massie’s statements have stirred conversations on the internet with a reader below the Mediaite article writing, “Wait until MAGA discovers US taxpayers fund government-subsidized abortion in their beloved Israel.”

Another one said, “Well... Are we finally getting to the truth about AIPAC? Wouldn't that be nice…”

The third one commented, “Israel owns the USA and I'm not quite sure how or why.”

“Hilariously, everything lobbyists do is perfectly legal, thanks to politicians who get rich from the process...legally. What a country,” the fourth reader remarked.

The fifth one added, “AIPAC's flagrant control of our government can only lead to worsening antisemitism in the long run and ugly backlash.”
