Marjorie Taylor Greene defends the leak of classified documents following the FBI arrest of Jack Douglas Teixeira, a 21-year-old member of the Massachusetts Air National Guard. She claims that the accused is an enemy of the Biden administration for being “white, male, Christian and antiwar” and for exposing the truth about troops being on the ground in Ukraine and a lot more.
US Air National Guardsman Accused of Leaking Classified Documents
Jack Teixiera, who worked for the US government in cyber defense operations, was accused of illegally retaining and transmitting secret national defense material. The documents contain dozens of pages describing critical intelligence and information discussed among a small group on the Discord text and video chat app, exposing the state’s secrets.
According to Fortune, the released documents are one of the most damaging and embarrassing intelligence releases in a decade. The event calls into question how a young junior airman obtained current views of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
However, Greene asserts to identify who is the real enemy as she lays down if it is the young low-level national guardsman or the administration that is waging war in Ukraine, a non-NATO nation, and against nuclear Russia without war powers.
Lindsey Graham: Greene’s Statement is ‘Terribly Irresponsible’
Representative Greene, who serves on the Homeland Security Committee, further stated that President Joe Biden has lied from the beginning. She said Biden and his administration as well as the Department of Defense are breaking the law by having US troop present in Ukraine’s war against Russia without being authorized by Congress. The far-right lawmaker questioned the administration and the DOJ for arresting the National Guardsman for exposing the truth.
Senator Lindsey Graham, who appeared on ABC’s This Week program, condemn’s Greene’s comments and called it “terribly irresponsible” for defending the leaking of information as it puts America in danger.
Graham claims that the leaked information about the defense capability of Ukraine and everybody in the region is dismaying as it tarnishes the credibility of the US. As Politico reported, it is viewed as potentially serious for Ukrainians and has irritated numerous US allies.
