The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's new senior advisor for strategic outreach called police officers "white supremacists" during the Capitol riots while also approving of looting in the wake of George Floyd's death.

Dyjuan Tatro made the comments before joining the DCCC.

Tatro wrote in a Twitter thread about the Capitol Police budget in January:

"The answer to white supremacists storming the Capitol is not to give more money to a different group of white supremacists who's [sic] job it is to uphold white supremacy."

The tweet was deleted down after the media began reporting on it.

Tatro's Twitter bio includes the disclaimer "my views."

He also described looting in the wake of George Floyd's death as "protests against systemic racism" in August.

"I don't understand why you can't CONDEMN VIOLENT POLICE [and] acknowledge LOOTING as a VITAL form of social PROTEST."

"And, how about YOU not use sterilized language when referring to state sanctioned murder while maligning protests against the systemic racism that enables it," Tatro responded to another user's tweet.

Tatro also likens police reform to reviving Nazism.

"To all those people who want to reform the police because all cops aren't bad, should we just go ahead and revive Nazism because all Nazis weren't bad? I didn't think so. Case closed," he wrote on Twitter in June.

A recent article from the New York Post highlighted Tatro's past as a gang member convicted for shooting members of a rival gang over ten years ago.

Tatro was featured in the 2019 documentary "College Behind Bars," which documented him earning a bachelor's degree while in prison.

"Dyjuan Tatro serves his time. Then DCCC hires him after he becomes a national leader in a bipartisan movement to reform prison education systems. [New York] Post publishes trash headline," Leiter wrote on Twitter.

According to a DCCC press release, Tatro would bring "years of critical experience in progressive politics, and a valuable range of background."

"I'm thrilled to welcome these seasoned operatives on board," DCCC Chair Sean Patrick Maloney said on Feb. 3.
