Ray Kelly: 'Vindictiveness' Behind Obama's 50% Cut in NYC Counterterror Funds


By    |   Sunday, 21 Feb 2016 03:51 PM

Former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly is accusing the Obama administration of slashing the city's counterterrorism funding 50 percent in retaliation for Sen. Chuck Schumer not backing the White House's Iran deal.

"There's a certain amount vindictiveness on the part of Washington aimed at Sen. Chuck Schumer," Kelly said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York.

"The fact that they cut it 50 percent, I think, was aimed at getting a reaction from Senator Schumer … Apparently they remember very well that Senator Schumer did not support their Iran deal."

The move would significantly impact on New York’s readiness, the former top cop told host John Catsimatidis.

On another issue, Kelly said the federal government should have issued its order for Apple to break into one of the San Bernardino terrorist's iPhone under seal.

Doing so publicly forced the company to resist, he said.

"In order to assuage [Apple CEO Tim Cook's] customer base, he's going to have to fight this pretty hard now that it's out in public," Kelly said.
