Creepy, scary situation. Former Rep Matt Shea is in Poland to adopt 60 Ukrainian children

Snip: Former Washington state Rep. Matt Shea, the far-right Republican who was found by a House-commissioned investigation to have planned and participated in domestic terrorism, is in a small town in Poland with more than 60 Ukrainian children, trying to facilitate their adoption in America Shea has said his group helped rescue 62 children and their two adult caregivers from an orphanage in Mariupol, the city in southeastern Ukraine that has been bombarded by Russian forces.

Snip: Ziarnicka, the mayoral aide, said she first went to check on the children after she was contacted by a group of local volunteers who were concerned about the situation. When she talked with Shea, she said he “got really angry,” refused to tell her his last name and asked to see her ID. “I said ‘You are American on Polish ground, why should I show you my document?'” Ziarnicka said. “I just want to talk to people who have the legal right to these children.”

Shea told her that he’d spoken with the mayor, Ziarnicka said, and that everything was OK.

“And I know it’s not true because the mayor is the one that asked me to go,” she said.

Another local volunteer, who asked to remain anonymous because she was targeted and harassed when she previously spoke publicly about the situation, said they tried to find documentation supporting the claims of Shea’s group, but found none.

“Whenever anyone wants to speak with Ukrainian supervisors or spend time with the kids, they need to have permission from those Americans, which is really weird,” she said.



Snip: Shea, who represented Spokane Valley in the state House for 12 years, opted not to seek reelection in 2020, after the House-commissioned report found he had planned and participated in domestic terrorism against the United States with his involvement in a trio of standoffs against the government.

That report alleged that Shea assisted “in the planning and preparation” of the 2016 armed takeover at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Eastern Oregon. It also examined Shea’s travel to the 2014 armed standoff in Bunkerville, Nevada, and a 2015 conflict in Bonner County, Idaho.

Following the report, Shea was suspended by the House Republican caucus, and urged to resign, although they declined to expel him from the Legislature.

10. Figures Texas and Florida both come up.

Any one want to bet this is the set up for a campaign photo op for DeSatan? All those little kids getting off a plane and him welcoming them with outstretched arms. He’ll give a wonderful speech about how he helped facilitate the whole thing. Of course no follow up will happen “ to protect the privacy of the children and their new families.” And yes, I do think he’s that self-serving.

12. I hope that is all it is.

It looks far more sinister than that though.

11. The creep factor of this is off the scale...

I hope someone saves these kids. Honestly, how tf is this even happening? He's not a Polish citizen, yet he can just walk in & lay claim to over 60 children? And no one can stop it? WTAF???

13. It's so disturbing.

“I asked him many times, ‘What are you going to do with these children?’ and he told me that it’s not my business,'” Weronika Ziarnicka, an aide to the mayor of Kazimierz Dolny, said of Shea. “I got the feeling in my gut that something’s wrong with this guy; he didn’t want to tell me his last name.”

Shea, who rarely speaks to mainstream media, did not respond to requests for comment.

15. My question, too.

How did he just waltz in and take custody of 60 kids? On whose authority?
